My Red Zone Experience (San Jose)

Bossy22,

 

I hate that you did not get close, that it was not a great experience. So much goes into each person attending a show having a good time. My 12 year old daughter couldn't get over the "lame" fans when I sat with her in the seats on Monday(they were making fun of ME dancing like an idiot when they chose to look up from their phones). At the same time, I was having an awesome time. My co-worker who attended the show Tuesday and sat upstairs in the rafters could not hear Bono. My point is this for everyone who goes to a show: focus on having the best time you can. Ignore all of the BS and enjoy.

 

I am sure if you ask the band about the Red Zone, they would say it should be the best concert experience we can provide. To say the band " has forgotten what it is all about" is not accurate. That the bands charge what the tickets now cost in the aftermarket (StubHub, etc.) no longer pisses me off. Better the bands make the money than ticket brokers or non fans making money off the shows. (truth be known, I   I spend my money where I want and get great seats (or GA). This year Rush and U2 got silly money from me, but Aerosmith, Van Halen and the Who did not. I will be at every show, having a great time.

Hi - I have RZ tix for July 2 in Chicago. I just want to make sure I get in the line early enough to get as close as possible - I am in Zone 2. It is first come first served right? This is my first time in RZ and I'm beyond excited!

Hey folks,

 

I'm new but just came off of 3 nights of GA in Chicago and was GA in the second night of San Jose, great seats in 100s for the first night. I just bought my first Red Zone ticket ever for MSG. First off, GA is AMAZING. Even if you don't cue up you'll have a great view. I loved to hang back a bit from the B Stage where you can dance etc. You can also move in and out of the red zone whenever you want down to the B stage or wherever. While I had a great time in GA, RZ totally worth it in my opinion...after the first couple of songs if you wander away from the rails you'll never get your spot back (still cool though). With RZ you can actually get back close to the main stage 

 

 

This show is OFF THE CHAIN and I can not WAIT for  MSG. This was my view from GA night #3 Chicago. I got there around 615.

I did RZ for a 3 shows in Australia on 360 and for first two i&e shows in Vancouver.

 

You're completely on the money: it was the people around me who made the experience so fantastic. When started our own RZ queue outside the venue early in the day on the first day of the tour (although completely unnecessary) because many of us were caught up in the excitement of the GA line. And we had a fantastic time without the stress of the GA line, or having to sleep overnight!

 

The only downside of being in RZ on this tour means you're not right up front at the 'e' stage where a lot of the full on engagement with fans happens. Still, the absolute excitement of being in front of the main stage when the band burst into the Miracle of Joey Ramone for the first time was  priceless. And when I ventured out into the arena in Vancouver all I saw were people taking selfies and and not fully engaged - while the band were right in front of them!! Ugh

 

I'm so glad I spent the money on RZ because I know I need to be on the floor. And it was totally worth the time, money and anxiety of flying from Australia to Canada. Best holiday ever ;-)
