Which end of the stage is the Red Zone?

Recommended Posts

SAP Center in San Jose has posted a very detailed seat map -- much more precise than the one on ticketmaster.com. What I notice is that it appears the stage will be set up with a main stage at one end and a runway along the floor to a smaller stage at the other end. So I guess the band stays on the main stage and Bono runs to the other end to sing sometimes. The diagram also shows the Red Zone as being near the second end -- the smaller stage. If that's the case, then red zone people aren't particularly close to the band, but they might be close to Bono sometimes. For those of you who have been to previous tours, does this sound right? Does anyone have any other data?

 

Also, does anyone know whether red zone ticket holders are permitted to leave the red zone and go into the GA area? In other words, are you restricted to the red zone, or can you choose to join the madness for part of the show?

 

(Bottom line is that I want to get as close as possible to the band, but it's not clear that red zone is actually better than GA for that.)

 

Thanks!

Yeah, unfortunately, it looks like it's by the B stage.  If I had realized this before I bought my RZ tickets, I'd have tried harder for GA.  Maybe not that much further away and much cheaper.

Hi, 

 

The Red Zone will be located directly flanking either side of the main stage. The SAP seating map is slightly misleading as it looks like  the main stage is on the right hand side, with the long catwalk leading to a B-Stage. What appears to be the main stage on the right is actually the sound area and work crew areas (if you read the fine print). 

 

You got the great Red Zone seats that will get you closest to the band during the show. Hope that clears up any confusion!

I know that in the 360 tour the Red Zone was not right next to the main stage...but along the outer circle...see image...

 

So I could see where it may not necessarily be right along the "A" stage...

As far a proximity to the stage goes, regular GA were by far the best at all the shows I have been to.

This is the first tour since Elevation to not have a heart, an ellipse or a pit design.

 

I can't wait to see a mockup of the stage from Willie.

I did red zone in the 360 tour. The view was phenomenal & no waiting all day, in some cases 2 days, in the GA line.

 

I'm doing Red zone again this time arouND & looking forward to it.
