I read that Red Zone was $400, was that a mistake by the person who posted it? Evenko for Montreal has the prices for each location and it was listed at $84. 

 

OT: I like being GA especially getting as close as possible. Not sure if I'll queue all day for this show since its in the round.

I used to always get seats due to my friends' preferences - did VIP and then whatever else I could afford for the following shows. Last tour I told myself that I'm doing GA and if the people with me don't like that then they can get their own seats! I'm going it alone.

The answer is simple--for serious fans, GA gets you at least as good a view as the best seats, and is way cheaper.

 

I certainly wouldn't agree with the "at least as good a view", but it is way cheaper. My first choice is always GA.

 

Why do you say that?  If you're willing to line up early, you can always get a better view w/GA (i.e., get close to the stage) than with seats.  Sure, if you arrive later, you can end up a ways back in GA, but it's up to you.

I did find that in GA I couldn't see most of the stage most of the time from the inner circle, but was 360, other designs may be different. The stage was too high in 360 to actually be visible from the inner circle. But it may have been decent from the main pitch.

Ah, I see what you mean.  Yeah, the stage in 360 was unusually high (relative to prior US arena tours).  So sure, especially if one wasn't tall, being up close to the front rail could cause some visibility issues, as it sounds like you experienced.  Myself, I'm 6 feet, and never had any problems seeing the stage.  I also tended to be toward the back of the inner circle, center, and from there could see everything just fine.  Besides all that, though, even if one was outside the inner circle but reasonably close to the outer catwalk, one would still be closer than basically any seat in a stadium.

 

In any case, this being an arena tour, it's doubtful that the stage will be as high as with 360.

There is one thing (a creeping cancer of 21st century gigs), that would cause me to disagree slightly.

 

At one of the 360 shows I was about three rows back from the front of the outer circle which was a great view, until any one of the band walked around at which point EVERYONE in front of me stuck their phones up in the air to take pictures, as well as two girls on the rail who had some banner they held up, all of which blocked the view COMPLETELY!  

 

Was kind of ironic that anytime a band member was close by, the view disappeared. Very annoying! :(
