Red Zone experiences?


Recommended Posts

well, we didn't want dissecting the concert itself, just the details of the Red Zone, since it's not what we thought it would be. So we're just looking for info like when she got there, was it packed, how close will we be able to get to them, that kinda thing, that's all.

this new lay out is just bad. Don't care about the screens, you pay to be close to the band. 

 

Are you missing that 50% of the main stage rail is RZ? At least based on the chart they sent out.

 

 

Jeff I think what have some Red Zone fans upset is they shelled out a lot of money for tickets based on a certain layout as advertised at the top of purchase. It then changed unknowingly to those who purchased them. There were some early photos posted during set-up in Vancouver that even showed the Red Zone as being along the catwalk on both sides, which was different from when they were first put on sale as well as when the notices went out to the Red Zone ticket holders, but ultimately for some reason, they nixed that catwalk idea and stuck to what was mailed out. For those unhappy about it, I think they have every right to vent their frustations.

Hi, I am curious what kind of notices have gone out to Red Zone ticket holders?  I haven't received any notices...have I missed something?  Thanks.

Well, I have two RZ tickets for NYC, so I am an RZer...

 

The original Ticketmaster layout showed a vague RZ connected to an arena-length stage and no further detail. Until this past week, that was the only official notice about where Red Zone would be. If people then dissected incorrect San Jose seating charts, and rehearsal photos, and everything else to try and get further details about RZ, it seems odd to fault the band for that.

 

I think they were vague from the beginning because the show was still taking shape, and they wanted RZ to have the best experience. For some that means right up against the stage, but then with the visual elements, you may miss some of that (which may be why they moved RZ from the B stage (if that were ever true).

 

So, if it takes the band longer to sort out how to provide RZ with what the band thinks is the best value/experience of the show, then I'd rather they be flexible until the last possible minute s the show takes shape. They seemed to settle on giving us part of the stage rail and the chance to hang back more and see the spectacle, so you have options.

 

The truth is, if the whole front of the main stage was RZ, some RZ people would complain about missing the catwalk/visuals/Bstage. If it was the whole catwalk, people would complain that they spent more time at the main stage. If it was the B stage, people would complain. So, I do think there is a constant here, but it isn't what the band could have done to make everyone happy. I don't think that exists.

 

But the only two official messages were two red blobs hanging off of an arena-long catwalk, with no main stage or B-stage filled in, and then the transmission this past week. Everything in the middle was speculation and rumor.

I would think those, such as yourself, who shelled out the money for Red Zone, you would be entitled to as close as possible. Sure there are sections in the front of the stage, but the rest of the section appears to be between reserved and general admission. I am surprised though they didn't make the Red Zone the entire front sections of the main stage and a portion of the catwalk, kind of like an "L" shaped on it's side. The rest of GA could have the remainder of the catwalk and B-stage. But that's just my opinion, and opinions differ greatly. Are you going just one NYC night or taking in all of the shows?

They utilize the entire stage Bono ventures to the e a lot. The band moves from their ad spots to the middle & end - e stage. no matter the side, if you're on the floor, GA or Red, there will be entire songs you wont see the band. Many always covet the front rail, this tour in a way destroys that. They work the entire arena. I actually think the seats may have the best view this time around. That said I loved being up close & respected that I'd have to share the band with the entire audience.

 

They don't interact with RED zone, Bono only really does that with GA at the E stage. Though he did recognize the we got your back kid who was at the I catwalk & pulled him up which was awesome. I love that he recognizes fans. I do swear i caught he & Adam definitely looking right at me on a number of occasions. I was at front rail. Check my Twitter & Instagram for photos, links in profile. I'll also post more, here also, when I get home & get the good stuff off my camera.

 

thanks for the info.
