  • Is anyone thinking about going to see the PJ20 viewing the night before at SouthSide Works ?

    or the Ten the Tribute Band at the Hard Rock Cafe ? Both are Thursday night...the movie is at 7:30 and the band plays at 9:30 at the Hard Rock. Should be a kick ass evening. Reserve your tickets for both. The movie won't play here unless enough people reserve tickets.
    The in between is mine.

    I scored Global Citizen tix!
  • I will be there, despite all the difficulties in obtaining tickets. All my lottery requests were denied (10C# 116xxx). I tried for Pittsburgh and Hartford, but I suppose I didn't use enough strategy... Pitt GA was my first choice, Pitt RS was second choice (then Hartford GA, then Hartford RS). I guess I would have had better luck if I had reversed the GA/RS preferences. Honestly, I think the system could be improved - because my true first choice would have been "attend the concert in Pittsburgh, regardless of seating section". I'd like to see a two-step process in place, where your concert selection is considered first, followed by seating preference. But that sort of option is not available, which (in my mind) turns the lottery into a kind of game...

    Anyway, I'm now trying to decide between a couple possible choices - has anyone sat in Sec 121 before? It's a side view, nice and close, for sure - but I don't know what the sight lines would be (e.g. will there be any obstructions)? My other option is in Sec 106 - definitely a clear view, but from a further distance...

    Has anyone sat in either of those areas for concerts at Consol in the past? Any opinions?

    And I'll throw this out there, too (with slim hopes) - if anyone has GA tix and would rather sit in 121 or 106, I'd be glade to accommodate a trade...

    However the seating situation turns out, I cannot wait. See you all at the pre-party.

    121 v. 106:

    121 is probably better depending on how up you are. For Muse two weeks ago they had people over there (I was in next section out), but no one was in like the first 5-6 rows of 121 because you'd be too low to see stage clearly. There could be some speakers down low and you may have trouble seeing the front corner of the stage, but it should be okay as long as you'd be in like Row 7-8ish. I haven't sat in 106, but I sat in 107 for a show and it just seemed really far away, and I felt removed from the concert at times. You find yourself watching the screen and not the stage because everyone looked small. Not awful seats by any means, but you're basically an entire hockey rink away (or further depending on what row).

    Anyone staying at the Marriott downtown :?:

    Yes, my wife and I are at the Marriott City Center. Great hotels location, but we have crappy seats due to a processing error by Ticketbastard. I'm looking to upgrade into something in the lower bowl with a stage view.

I look forward to lots of singing, chanting, and dancing. I really hope for Release to open but I know they opened with that last time they were here so I'll go with Wash or Corduroy..

    Also look forward to you meeting some of you at the preparty!

    Getting close, and I can't wait. Between Pittsburgh and Buffalo, I'd like to hear all of the new songs so I know how they sound live. I feel like Sirens is going to sound great live.

  • Thanks wingend, that's exactly the kind of input I was looking for. And I can picture exactly what you mean about the lower rows of 121. It helps a lot to know what the seating for other shows has been like. I also have some of the same thoughts as you regarding 106. I've been spoiled by 10C floor seats for a long time. I hate when I catch myself watching the Jumbotrons at shows... Remember the old days when PJ didn't even allow them to be turned on?

    I think I'm going to go with those seats in 121. Thanks for helping to reassure me.

    And hrd2imagin, thanks as well - I'd seen that chart on the Consol site. It's awesome if you're picking out hockey seats, but a little more difficult to envision the exact stage layout for concerts, etc...

    Should be an incredible time....

    Ticketmaster says showtime is 730. Any word on an opening act?

    I haven't seen anything about an opener and can't imagine Pearl Jam going on at freaking 730.
    Do you remember Rock & Roll Radio?

    yes and with less than 2 weeks to go...strange. Maybe there won't be an opening band and do what they did in London & Chicago. But then they have an opening band for some of the shows on the 2nd leg...wierd
