FLOOR seats at Concerts? (U2)

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Harry Lime, Oct 30, 2001.


  1. U2 is in town tonight and tomorrow. I totally forgot, I thought it was later on they'd be in Providence. So I'm gonna hafta to buy last minute tickets if I go tomorrow night at ticketsplus.com. Does anyone know what FLOOR tickets are like? You stand up the whole time? They do have seat tickets but they cost a lot mroe. The FLOOR ones are $85. How do you know which seats are better to the ones that are available? (I haven't been to many concerts, but would really like to see U2.)

    IME, floor tickets are a crap shoot. Either you are behind a tall person, or you aren't. Either you're behind a lighting structure or you aren't. You probably will be standing the whole time, at least I've never been to a concert on the floor where I haven't been standing throught the whole damn thing. You'll probably end up standing on your chair, but then again EVERYONE is standing on their chair, so it really doesn't matter. The moral of the story: Floor seats are not my friend. But that's just me. I never liked it. I'm sure there are people on the board that do.

    The last concert I went to (was that really two years ago? wow) was Creed, Sevendust and Nickelback (stole the show) at San Jose St. That place is great for moshing. The floor is just the right size for a hard rock concert. The weird thing was that during Creed, this guy next to me started praying in the middle of a song. I just looked from him to my friend. On the next song, I think it was "What If", we started a pit right next to this guy. It was hillarious.

    Wether to go on the floor depends on what show you're at. If you're at Bob Dylan, you want to be able to sit at one point right? But if you're at Metallica or DMB, you'll be up the entire time (esp. Metallica)

    just my 2 cents

    What's weird about that? Even though Creed is not a Christian band, per se, a lot of their songs are very spiritual.

    Like SuperDuck, it's a bit of gamble when you buy floor tickets. Still, when I went to see U2 a few months ago I had a seat and ended up standing through the whole gig.
     
  6. For a U2 hosw, you will probably be standing the entire time, just kinda moving to the music. If you go to something harder, better get a good chiropractor, cause your necks gonna be messed up from head banging (Ask Jason Newstead)

    If they do some of their slower songs you might get a chance to sit down, but more likely not. If you really need a rest get the guy standing next to you to hold your place, go outside and sit for 5 minutes, then come back.

    Rock on
