  1. GA's for arena shows go quick. The $40 tickets are upper corner nosebleeds. Years ago, the GA's were the cheapest. Now they run $80-$100. GA is definitely worth it. With this stage layout, you can do well without lining up all day, because they move between stages. Just work your way closer to the stage they have just left and you will get pretty close. You can have the RED zone experience with more crowding and no bar on the floor.


  2. I went to Houston and Dallas in GA. No mention of fan club membership. Fans have been organizing the GA lines prior to the event date, they however have no association with the venue or band and thus no authority to enforce numbers. An honor system, in effect. The venues are not officially allowing waiting on the premises until 6am on event day, for the most part. I got my number from a fan coordinator @ 12:45pm on event day in Houston. I got #338. In Dallas, I arrived at the same time and received #1032 from venue personnel, with no fan coordination. In both cases, I ended up 2nd from the rail at my desired location, on tree stage and catwalk for the respective shows. Since these are credit card tickets, line organizers have no idea whether anyone they are giving numbers to actually possess tickets in their names when they issue numbers. In Dallas, the venue person asked to see an email confirmation from the venue on my phone. But didn't look at it carefully.
    Still didn't swipe my card before issuing the number. The fan coordinator number is in marker on your hand. At 2:30pm in Houston, the venue passed us through security and issued wrist bands with numbers corresponding to the fan marker number. In Dallas, anyone arriving after 6am was given a numbered wristband by the venue.

  5. They tend to open the gates generally an hour before showtime. I think it was maybe a half an hour earlier in Boston in 2015 for GA/Red Zone. Start time is 6:30, rather early. They also hand out GA numbers earlier in the day. We got ours at noontime in Boston and got around 300. That night, we lined up according to our numbers. Only really important if you are a rail sprinter. That wasn't required to get a good spot for us, though. Even entering at 300.


  6. I hear ya!  I wanted to take my little nephew to see U2 in Houston but with GA tickets, it'd be impossible for him to see the stage.  We decided against taking him...and  unfortunately, we couldnt get seated tickets either...too late.   Good luck! 

    Reserved seating is still available direct from Ticketmaster at face value in Houston. Upper level, but there to be bought...


  7. I have 2 tickets  for Houston on May 24 section 106 Row K I want to resell. Ticketmaster says fan club tics non transferable. Suggestions? Thanks

    As long as they are not credit card tickets (And I believe that only GA /Red Zone are those), you can sell them on any other platform, such as Stubhub, Seatgeek,etc. Or here at face value with fees. Great tickets,btw.
