    Man... If I'd knew this maybe i would have skipped the Europe tour an gone to this. This sounds cool. If you wanna see Seattle one day, this is a great opportunity. 

    How big is the arena?
    Its a field and 47,500 in the stand plus whatever fits on the field. Plenty of tickets to go around for 2 nights. Over 100,000 I am guessing.

    And this is the issue I have with not sharing the year's plans in advanced.  Sorry for you.

    Seats just under 50k for baseball.  They will surely lose some outfield sections and gain some field -- guessing between 45-50k tickets but that is a total guess.

    Would make sense for the Seattle shows to be spun off in a separate lottery.
    I dont think it makes sense.  If they have loads of tickets i still think priority should be given to people that made it their top pick.  If there's boatloads of tickets then people who pick them as 3rd, 4th, 5th will get them too.   If there is GA in Seattle it would allow 10c members who prioritzed ga in seattle to get more access to pit tix.  If they seperate the lotto then people can get GA in boston/chicago then bump seattle people for the spots.

    Thats my thoughts.   I thought it was a bit unfair in 2013 when they split up the east/west lottos.  So many people that had already seen shows on the otherside traveled and bumped people for spots :(
    GA will be the same number for all shows that have GA though. The pit is the pit. Reserved is where the extras will come I would imagine. 
    Yah but if they did Seattle as a seperate lotto people could order GA tickets for the other shows and again for seattle.  Possibly getting two pairs of GA tickets before Seattle only people get one.

    It's the best way to spend a 40th birthday. It's how I did it two years ago on May 10th.

    Ten Club continues to strive to get tickets straight into the hands of fans, and we've made arrangements to accommodate more fan club members than ever before.
    Ticket pre-sale information coming soon.

    That's nice to read.

    .... The people who were interested in the other rumoured venues but be feeling a bit left out right about now, lol. Hopefully their time comes soon!

    I booked a hotel room right near Pike Place on Saturday morning, and I'm glad I did. My lord, hotel prices in Seattle during the high season are crazy. Comparable to NYC. I got a small but decent room for something like $300CAD/night at the Executive Hotel Pacific, and I'm finding that that is actually a very good deal. :tired_face: I'm a little jealous of those who got the cheaper Edgewater rooms. It is a bit pricier than what I got and a little farther away from Safeco, but the rooms are also a lot bigger and the amenities are better..... I should have just accepted the extra expense maybe, and booked one of those when I had the chance. The water view ones are just too expensive, and the city view (cheaper) ones are now all gone.

    I am not a fan of the stadium shows though.  Diminished acoustics and fan experience.  Been there, done that.  Its not special anymore.

    If they are getting more seats, I'm curious if that means all seats on the field (GA or reserved) will be 10c.

    Regular baseball stadium size? It's actually an absolutely gorgeous ballpark. I have always really enjoyed the atmosphere at Safeco. Very pretty and comfortable.

    "...Dimitri...He talks to me...'.."The Ghost of Greece..".
    "..That's One Happy Fuckin Ghost.."
    “..That came up on the Pillow Case...This is for the Greek, With Our Apologies.....”
  • I think this will be a separate lottery that includes both nights. Pretty rough to get people to book minimum 3 night stays around the shows then only have them eligible to get tickets for 1 show.   This feels more like a PJ/Ten Club Event than just 2 shows at a stadium.
    Sorry. The world doesn't work the way you tell it to.

    Same here.... I'm actually thinking about not going if I can only get a seat in the stands. It's not because I'm being a huge snob about it - it's because of the hotel prices. If I'm going to shell out over $1000 for the hotel alone, I need the concert experience to be pretty fucking awesome, and I just feel like ballpark stand seats are way too far away from the stage - I just personally can't get overly excited about watching ants perform, no matter who it is. And any outdoor show has worse acoustics, so inside is always better. Anyway, it's a great plan on the band's part, but considering the expenses it's not do or die for me. I'm kind of thinking GA or bust for this one, considering the cost. I shall let the 10C ticket lottery gods decide if I'm going or not. If I can land GA for one show, then I'm totally there. If not... I might buy a new mattress instead, lol. I really need one. :tongue: Then again, I really do want to go... I'm going to struggle a bit with this decision!

    I don't know about the flights, but the hotel is still pretty expensive. Now they only have rooms that are $360 a night or something like that? The cheapest (all gone already) were something like $239/night +fees/taxes? Maybe even a bit more?

    Hope that Jubilee Women's Center can get some of the funds from the homeless benefit.  I've been volunteering there for years.
    It does great works.  http://www.jwcenter.org

    It's a possibility but not a certainty. Hence the lottery system. If the desire is to completely sell out both Seattle shows in addition to completely selling out the other 4 stadium shows separate lotteries for "home" and "away" shows make the most sense (speaking as someone only entering for Chicago #1)
    To quote the 10C from Newsletter #8: "Please understand we have a lot of members and it is very hard to please everybody. If you are one of those unhappy people...please call 1-900-IDN-TCAR."

    Whatever 10 club tickets they have allotted to them for the 7 shows they will sell out no matter if they do multiple draws or the 1 draw. If they do the one draw more people have a chance to see them. If they do multiple draws then there is more of a chance that people get completely shut out as opposed to one draw where most will get their first priority.

    Stinks that there is no way to get 3 tickets via the Ten Club. My wife and I want to take our son to his first show but will have to go with the public sale I guess. Shame after 20 plus years in the club they can't accommodate fans like myself. What would it hurt to have a 3 ticket option?

    If you both have accounts and there is GA you can get 4 tickets and sell your spare to a fan here for face. That is if you want GA. If not the general sale will be your only other option for seats in the stands.

    ...or a 4 ticket option. Or a 5 ticket option. Or a 6 ticket option.

    2 tickets is a balance that has worked for (most) fans since forever. 

    Ask for a spare on here.

    ... or a 1 ticket option. I don't like being forced to spend double what I need to spend on tickets. Yes, I can sell the spare later, but that can be a hassle, and I don't like having to front the money for a ticket I don't want. I understand limiting it to 2 completely. But why they won't allow singles is completely beyond me, since doing that would really help all the fans out.
