Do you happen to know if the 400-level hangs over the 300-level. I'm in 332 for Chicago - last row. Also, my wife and I try to stand throughout the whole show, which is why we try to get last row seating as to not obstruct others' views. I noticed that my section has accessible seating behind - do you know if standing would obstruct the view of fans using wheelchairs at Soldier Field, or is the accessible section elevated enough? Thanks for any info you have!
If the accessible seating is behind you then standing will affect their view. I don't know what to say. It sucks. I can stand and even dance but when the pain hits, I need to sit or I will fall. A fractured skull taught me that but I recovered and finally listened to my friends. Some are in wheelchairs. I don't want to tell you what to do. When U2 was at the United Center, I sat in section 108 for all but one of the shows. They left the row in front of us open so we could see. Maybe the same will be true for Soldier Field. Even with that row open; I had to be a pit viper getting people from taking those seats and standing. I would tell them no and they would go stand in front of someone in a wheelchair. I kept the row open but got called a number of colorful names. One of the accessible seating people told me, "David, nobody should be in those seats. If they do not leave call/text me and I'll send security." If security would have come, I'm not sure what happens so I just growled louder than they did and everyone left.
I'm not sure what to say about this venue. I don't speak for either but I go to the United Center all the time. I was right next to one of the U2 camera men for the IE tour. I'm not sure what he thought. It would be interesting to find out because after a while it got very tiring. I became a jerk because I was missing the show. I've been writing all day and am wired. I need to go before I write another book.
I would use my judgement. Usually in stadiums and in this one, if memory serves me correctly...the accessible seats were actually a couple steps up and we could see over others but that was 100 level seating. It may not be an issue and I'm writing more so time to go. Have fun!
Thank you for the input - I appreciate you letting me know. The last thing I want to do is negatively impact another fan's U2 experience!
