so...yeah...tons of non nye tickets are still available now.  i guess everyone was just holding them and not buying.  i'm pulling pairs of non nye in behind the stage 100 levels with ease.  the next higher section (300s) is wide open.

as expected, nye was the only one that was tough.  glad to hear you are in matt.  and you're right.  there's tons of time to work on that upgrade.

I have seen some upper level NYE for face on cash or trade and this is the cheapest price I have seen for NYE on stubhub (80$) in a longgg time.

Ticketmaster's site is always lousy but I've never had it crap out on me as often as it did yesterday. Errors, tickets lost, etc. I too was surprised by the difficulty. Kept getting nothing for NYE and lower level behind the stage for the other nights. Had a crew of people coordinating via gchat. We finally pulled floors for night two, sec 324 near the front for night three, and upper behind the stage for NYE. Little nervous about that last one as I've never been stuck behind the stage before and I'm not sure Ill like it. I know other people dig that vantage point though. May also be a different story if you're in the nosebleeds.

Now about that PTO...

I've never been to AA arena. I've heard that other than the floor the only flat areas good for dancing are in the 400s. Is this accurate?

 :mrgreen:

It's been the Paug section for the last couple New Years runs iirc.

I suppose the downside is you don't get the light show but otherwise, the sound is generally good, there's usually more space/less scramble for seats and you're closer to the band (albeit, their backside) than most spots in the arena.

I wouldn't want to sit behind the band at every show but I'd say it's one of the better spots to see a show in general.  If there is no "great seats" available (ie. front of floor or most 100 sections) I'd say the back of stage  is the place to go!

So this past NYE we were on the floor for MSG, and aside from the truck set where Phish basically set up in my living room, I hated it. The light pollution from the stage was terrible, and we were in the back half of the arena. It wasn't even close to dim and definitely far from optimal for tripping. I could have read a book. You will not find me on the floor of an arena any time soon while Phish's current light rig is in play.

There are 3,000 tickets on Stubhub for NYE night.....and the cheapest is at 97$. Including all fees, taxes.....

Holy fuck some people are going to take a bath. Well, this will make up for my 1,500$ loss on last year's Hampton 3 day pass fiasco (I swear I thought it said Atlantic City).

Most shows spell something.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul
