Question for Chicago Show Attendees

Looking at 10c Seat Tracker at touringfans.com, I noticed
that people with 10c numbers in the low 100k's - e.g. 110xxx
through 130xxx had seats on the floor about 6 to 9 rows back,
at the Chicago shows.

How were those seats? Easy or hard to see the band?
Any feedback would be appreciated.

I have 10c number 113xxx and will be at both Boston shows - which
is a similar venue to United Center - so just trying to get an expectation
of the viewing pleasure.

Also, my wife is only 5 ft. 4 in. so she's worried about being
able to see from floor seats.

Thanks,
Dogman.

  • My number is 181xxx. I went both nights. Night 1 I was in section 113 row 6. Right off the corner of Mike side. Great seats.

    Last night, same section, but down in Row 1, which was basically an extention of the 7th row of the main floor, but up a step. I think these side section seats are better than anything beyond the first 10 rows of the main floor.

    You should be in good shape I would think.

    i was at both shows and my number is 111XXX. got 6th and 7th row center. fantastic seats! i had friends in the nosebleed and they were pretty dissapointed in the show. PJ is a no frills garage rock band, so they dont always translate well in the really big venues unless you have good seats.

    BigAlpo and CanvasAdam,

    Thanks for the replies. Can you comment on how well you could see
    the band over the people in front of you? As I mentioned, I am more
    worried about my wife - as she's only 5'4".

    Any blind spots? Tall people in front of you?

    Thanks,
    Dogman

    for Night 2 I was on the floor about 30 rows back on Mike's side. The seats were great, but then again I am 6'4". I guess it all depends on the people in front of your wife.
    "I'll do whatever the song dictates - if it doesn't need a real lead, then I won't do one. But if it does, then I'll fuckin' go off." - Mike

    "Japan is awesome; the fans there knew all the words to all the songs...at least phonetically." - Stone

    "I know this song so well, I can smoke a cigarette, have a drink, brush my teeth, take a shit, and mow the lawn while singing it. But I'll only be doing a couple of those things during this version." - EV

    5/16 - Sec. 111 Row 5 Seats 19-20(aisle)

    Awesome seats! Better than

    5/17 - Sec. 6 Row 3 Seats 13-14(aisle). I'm 5'8" so I was bobbing and weaving all night to see. I wasn't that concerned with seeing them because of the great view I had the night before.

    Good Luck!

    I think they might have gave me the wrong tickets I'm member # 173... and I was in section 101 with members in the 300's(according to touringfans.com)

    Night 1: Sec 2, Row 7, dead center.
    Night 2: Sec 1, Row 6, Mike's side.

    The same people around me for the 1st night were next to me on the 2nd, seems like the 10C just shifted everyone to the left. I was able to get a pic from Mike on the 2nd night. 10C came through once again.

  • It all depends on the luck you have of who is right in front of you. I have a 262XXX number and was 30 rows back on the floor in Toronto, I am 6'0 and I could not see anything at all I sear half the crowd was like 6'5. I ended up leaving for some seats behind the stage. Other times I have been in the first 6 rows on the floor through a friends TC# and had no problem at all . I think if your wife is 5'4, she may have a tough time seeing but again you kinda look for the gaps in your line of view and hopefully its all good. And by the looks of your # you should be fine.
