Prague Roll Call

I hope everyone who went in the 10C lottery got tickets. Seems it might have worked that way (there was no "odds" information as far as I could see). 
Anyone know how we will find out reserved seat numbers and get tickets? Are these electronic only. 
See you in Prague next summer!

    It was 16% for RES and 99% for GA. It is old school pick up at 10C willcall for hard tickets. 10C only gets a small amount of reserved seats and they are some of the best seats in the house. It is different than the NA reserved seating allotment. 

    Also in for Prague GA! LETS GO!

    Got GA, not too surprising at 99% but still very excited for Europe 2021. Thrilled to add Prague to my list of places to visit and expand my trip a few extra days!

    I am in for GA. Looking forward to it. I have never been to Prague. It has been on my list. Hoping we can travel and Covid will be just a blip in our rearview mirrors.
  • Has anyone been to shows at 02 Arena in Prague or the arena in Krakow booked for next summer? Looking online these seem to be really big arenas, floor is packed when there is GA (uncomfortably packed) and lower seats and front of floor seem to have lots of empty space separating crowd from band. I.e., not easy to be up real close no matter what your position on floor or in stands. Anyone have thoughts on seeing Pearl Jam in eastern Europe and what crowds will be like? Band seems to really like playing that part of Europe.

    I've been to both for PJ crowds are great can be a bit intense near the front but move back a little and you will be fine

    Standard size arena. Same as anywhere in the world. 15-18k people. Prague always has a great crowd. Love the city. Love the arena. Not for a rational reason but for the great memories I have with it. I have to go see a concert there per year. Always worth the trip from Berlin.

    Krakow was a sandwichfest the whole show minus the really slow songs. I enjoyed it a lot though and it was a little rough up front but if you do not like to be belly to back with people I would stay further to the sides or back. Prague was a great crowd. Reminded me of an intense NA show and not much pushing in the pit. That was my experience 4 rows back from both venues.

    Krakow has a huge wide floor. Prague was much more narrow (if I remember correctly, only been there in 2006)

    2018 experience: Prague had a separated Front of Stage section, which was really packed at least on Mikes side. Krakow had no separation / one floor for all and even more packed at the front. If you want to be up close you have to be there very early + endure some pressure and heat. Prague easier than Krakow in my opinion. Both shows were great, Krakow topped it setlist and energy wise for me, but that's probably subjective :)

    Eek, the GA experience doesn't sound all that pleasant at the front, from what you described. I think it'll be one of those things where I'll just know when I get there. Anyway, got GA this morning, so now have 4 shows lined up for next year. Really happy to have the Vienna / Krakow / Prague stint confirmed. Got to the rail in front of Mike in Madrid in 2018 and there wasn't any pushing from the crowd whatsoever. In front of Ed looked a bit intense though.

    The people on the rail for Krakow (and Berlin for that matter) had no clue how much protection they were getting from the fans behind them. In my area anyways thats how it was. Prague on the other hand was an amazing GA experience for me surrounded by great fans and while there was bumping going on very little pressure from the back since it was a different pit set up. Krakow had great fans too but it felt like I was being bumrushed all night and had to fight for my spot the whole time. Like I said I still enjoyed Krakow overall just be prepared for the pressure. That said there was never any moment I thought anyone was in danger around me.

    In 2018 everything outside was very limited and posters sold out fast. Inside had some posters/merch too but the quantities were not what you would expect coming from NA. Past tours did not sell that well in Europe so I think they cut back numbers for this tour but in doing so left a lot of money on the table imo. Hopefully they saw the demand and 2021 is more stocked.

    Merch Setup in Europe 2018: One stand outside of the Arena opening early afternoon. Two or Three stands inside. Posters outside were almost impossible to get without queueing very early, as they had very low quantities (there was a rumour that there were only 50 posters available outside in Prague). I think they didn't expect the demand as it had changed from 2014. Hope/Expect it will be better 2021. Everything except posters was no problem in my experience... 

    Edit: just saw @PJNB basically wrote the same thing, just faster, so take that as confirmation :)

    Krakow was a nightmare for us. We were second row Mike's side. Trying all night not to squash the sh*t out of girl on the barrier and we got no thanks for it. Anytime there was a surge she was livid with us LOLOL. So many good songs ruined. Prague on the other hand was amazing - 4 rows back, very little hassle. You are always going to get people trying to push to the front.
