  1. I had Red Zone in Houston and stared at their bums when they were out on "The Tree" stage. Not that it was a bad thing for me to see their bums. LOL! But personally, I think the other side would give you a better view. That is, when you're looking at the stage, the right side of the tree would be better because they tend to face that side of the audience more often. Also, the video screen is truly beautiful, and to fully appreciate it, I think it helps to stand back from the stage so you can see it in its entirety. I have seen 2 shows so far. Houston in RZ and Dallas in first level of seats, 3rd row. For GA in Boston, I'm going to try to head to the right side of the tree stage. That way I can see them up close while they're on the tree stage, and still see the full view of the main screen. Hope that helps.
  2. We went to both of the 360 shows at Foxboro in 2009 - one was on a Sunday, the other, a Monday. Yes, traffic was terrible, even for the Sunday show. I would say 3 hours from Boston is about accurate. In 2009, I lived in Wilmington, MA, which is about 40 miles north of Foxboro. The stress of feeling like I would never get to the stadium almost sent me into a panic attack. The thing about Boston is, most of the time, there's only one main road/highway you can take to get from point A to point B. If there's an alternate route, it's probably even worse than the highway. It will also take you forever to get out of Foxboro after the show. It's worth it.
  3. Hi Céd, I lived in the Boston area for 14 years and saw the 360 tour there. I'm also going to the Joshua Tree show. I'm doing GA this time, but I've never done the very early GA line. Driving to Gillette can be a challenge. Traffic is awful. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time to get there. I'm hoping to leave (we are staying in Braintree) for the show around noon - but I'll have to convince my husband. There is plenty of parking around the stadium. During the 360 tour, other businesses near the stadium opened their lots and allowed people to park there (for a fee, of course). I'm sorry I can't give you advice about the GA line. Good luck and I hope you have a great time! Allyson
  4. What worked for me: I used those price range sliders at the top of your first screen shot (above the #1). I wanted GA so I limited the price range to about $70. I know this doesn't help you choose a seated section though. It's really annoying that they don't let you use the interactive seating chart to choose a section during the presale. But... it's Ticketmaster, so
  5. It worked! I feel like a dope because I didn't think of this on my own! Thank you!
  6. I'm trying to buy tix for Kansas City, but my presale code is only unlocking RZ and the 300 level seats. I would like to buy GA. I started trying right when they went on sale Thursday, but no luck. Are they sold out already? Anyone else having issues with KC in particular? I wouldn't think that would be a difficult place to find tickets, but I have family in the area, so... sort of planning a dual-purpose trip! Edit: Ticketmaster also isn't giving me the "interactive map" that allows you to click on a specific section. I just bought tickets to see Arcade Fire and I could use the map for those tickets. Something weird is going on.
  7. Has anyone been able to access GA tickets with the pre-sale code? (In Kansas City.) I can buy seats or RZ, but I would like to buy GA and it's not giving me the option. Just wondering if others have had an issue. Thanks!
  8. Yep, TM is messed up. What's new? I still had 2 presale tickets available and have tried for both the Kansas City and St. Louis shows, but can only access tickets for VIP and RZ. Geez, those are expensive!
  9. It seems to vary from venue to venue - some have "gold VIP" and "silver VIP," and some have just "VIP." In Houston, there was an area near the RED zone - it was on the floor, and on the same side as the RZ, and there was an elevated platform with folding chairs. There were maybe 30-40 seats there, but I have no idea what that was. There was a security guard checking IDs to allow people in there. It wasn't part of the RZ because I had RZ tickets at Houston. I wondered if that was VIP...? But I guess you're saying that you just got regular seats in the lower section?
  10. What exactly is a "VIP Package?" Looking at the Ticketmaster site for the tickets for the 2nd North American leg and wondering...
  11. Very well written and I don't know what to say... I lost my mom in 1995 (non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma). I was 27, she was 55. Iris is a special song... My heart goes out to you!
  12. Very nice! Thanks for sharing! I never realized how much I like Exit until I saw it live - pretty bada$$!
  13. Found this on YouTube. Larry at 1:45 - OMG how cute!
