tickets on after market are extremly expensive i know :bawling: but i need to know one last thing ! do you have a big diffence between grandstand 26 row 1 or logebox 141 row MM ? i know people told me: Do not go under the stand ! ( grandstand) but row 1 is it that bad or really have to go with logebox row CC or close to that to see the difference ? 

exemple : should i go with 135 CC or 141 MM or 126 Row 1 ? any big diffence between them ?

Thanks guys ! really appreciate your help !

    Wait to buy. Tickets usually drop. If you can get there without a ticket and find one the day of the show, there should be enough at good prices.

    On occasion, 10C will release extras that go unclaimed.

    In 2016 we got to Boston at 2pm and needed a ticket for my buddy, he walked right up to the window and bought one on the first baseline about 15 rows back. I think is was $200 with fees and stuff at the box office. There were so many tickets, people we re-getting in line, to get as many as they could, I guess to then go scalp around Boston or on stub hub. Just hang out at Fenway day of the show and you will easily get tickets. Not cheaply, id expect to pay $200, but easily.

    This is good advice but also consider these are their first and only east coast shows in two years, and probably will not be coming back around for another year afterwards.

    The Sunday show may be quite the challenge getting "day of" tickets. If you are able to stay in town for Tuesday's show, I believe that will be the easier show to obtain "day of" tickets

    Any seats in the stands are far, far away from the stage.  You'll be watching the screen.

    But you'll be elevated...and you'll be there.

    (I liked my suite, though.)

    Not sure about row 1 but the further back you go the worse the sound is and the more of a chance you have a pillar in your way.

    Fenway Park has a great 3D seating chart: http://boston.redsox.mlb.com/bos/ticketing/seating_pricing.jsp

    I also think the fear of bad sound under the grandstand is a bit over blown.  I had seats in the last row for Paul McCartney and the sound was fine.  If you end up in the grandstand, you just need to be mindful of the support posts for the upper level.

    Typically, Grandstand row 1 and a few of the last Loge Box rows are sheltered from rain, but not way under the overhang, so the sound will likely not be muddled (or if it is, its not because of the overhang at least).  The grandstand seats are also less comfortable and less roomy than loge, but you'll hopefully be standing anyway.  In your example above, Loge 141 row MM is also under the overhang, and only 2 rows closer than Grandstand row 1.  Loge 135 row CC is around 10 rows closer, but more towards home plate, so its likely farther away.

    My guess is that the Grandstand seats are the cheapest and overall the same view as the Loge seats.  I would go with those, unless the price difference is inconsequential.  Good luck!  

    PS - I am not endorsing purchasing scalped tickets, but I understand the need to do so sometimes (when you are traveling to a show and don't want to chance it, when you don't want to wait around all day for the chance at face value tickets, etc).
