    Probably won’t go if I’m not in the 100s though. I don’t go to many shows anymore (5yo/3yo daughters) so when I do I try to get as close as possible. Thanks for the offer though @tempo_n_groove
    They project the band on a large screen at the rear of the stage. Really not a bad seat in the place when that happens.
    Shine pigeon posted the full Alpine show.  He did a good job and you can see/feel the energy.  Looked awesome.  I am very excited for this one. 
    Honestly I saw them back to back in Chicago and those might have been the two best concerts I have ever attended.

    Just non stop energy and passion for 90 minutes
    Wow that’s a heavy claim but I’m honestly getting that feeling watching clips of these shows. I’m seriously stoked for this. I’m going to night one at msg but I won’t be surprised if I decide to attend a few more after the first one.

    we do know that the setlist doesn't change much....you might get a different song each night but the rest will be the same. But still....

    I only went to night 2, but I'd agree.  Definitely one of the best shows I've seen.  It was 90 minutes of pure energy and intensity by the band with zero let up.  No talking, no breaks, just an in your face, pedal to the floor concert.  I've been saying since Tuesday that a seated Zack brings more energy to a show than 95% of musicians on two legs.  For anyone on the fence, go see them on this tour.

    When you don’t expect setlist changes, it’s not disappointing. I saw all 8 u2 shows at msg in 2015 and had the time of my life.

    I wasn't in GA but it was rough up front. Moshpit for sure

    back of GA in front of the sound mix was fine

    I had seats.  GA was definitely rougher than a PJ show as you'd expect, but nothing crazy.  A couple of small "pits" going, lot of crowd surfing and cups with beer, etc. getting tossed in the air.  Saw a dude getting walked out from the front with a cup half filled with blood coming from his nose/mouth.  A rough GA is all relative, but there was a good amount of movement taking place, so be prepared for that if you go that route.

    I have section 3 floor on Sunday at MSG.  I was thinking of making a run to GA.  Maybe I'll just hang there.

    I would disagree with that....what I saw was crazy for sure but I'm 54 (today) so maybe my definition is different

    You don't want to get in the fray and throw them 'bows??  Haha...kidding.  I was very close to grabbing GA, but decided on seats and glad with the decision.  GA was fun to watch from the sidelines though.

    I've been in a few QOTSA pits in the last several years.  I'm too old though. 

    For Rage,  I'll be chilling in the luxury box section in DC. That's like Rage Against Your Financial Planner.

    I don't mind good seats. I will say that it is nice to not have to worry about seeing over the person in front of you. As long as there are video screens I am fine with that. Also much easier to find your way back to your spot...although for RATM I never left my seat since they played nonstop for only 90 minutes.

    Seats are great
    Unless your location stinks
    Or you have a giant or a sign holder in front of you
    Or if you have a poker behind you

    :lol:    all part of going to shows.  
    I love that people are having so much fun at these shows.  Still play their music constantly. 
    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    Take the power back rotating in. My preference for that rotating slot would be No Shelter or Down Rodeo.
