Hey sugarmag, you seem to go to a lot of shows and stuff. What do you think of these tickets. Section 432 Row A. $151 a piece. Side stage and possible obstruction printed on ticket. It seems that section would be alright.
You must REALLY love your daughter terpdog.
Now I am just pissed that I devoted this time, presale as well, I have nothing to show for it. They will absolutely love it as well. Not going to lie, I was pretty stoked about going as well.
Tickets were 120 with fees anyway. Not sure about those though.

Are you comitted to all six together? If not, look to break them up in groups of two or three. From what I see of the seating chart, not sure how 432 would be obstructed. You might have some blockage from the hanging PA speakers, but that section looks far enough out that you should have clean line of sight. My though on uppper deck at Verizon is never sit above row B. $151 for those tix doesn't sound terrible, the face value should be be $94.50.
if yo're on SH, do a sort by row and look for pricing anomolies based on row letter. At Verzion, as you're looking at the section from above or behind, the numbers go low to high from left to right. Aisle seats are 1-4 and the upper 20's.
Just getting 4. It's weird just Row A 419 and 432 have that obstructed view showing. Not sure if others are just not disclosing. Seems odd Row A would have obstructed view but not Row D
The upper deck is incredbily steep, like most arenas. The views can change quickly. The sound up there is not good I would guess. Sound is also terrible in the upper rows of the Club section where the upper deck hangs over.

I don't know. Give me your professional opinion? Is it worth the gamble or do I wait until somthing better comes along?
For Row A I'd take them. They won't be there long if the price is out of line.
Interesting, just found Row D same section for Sunday but it only says possible obstruction side stage. Must be speakers or something.
Fuck it I did it.
If something better comes along I could always sell them for at least near what I paid.
Thanks for your help Sugarmag, much appreciated. Do me a favor and tell me I did the right thing so I don't feel like a total douche.
Ticketmaster is obnoxious as hell, particularly for this exact scenario. Couple of years ago was trying to get tickets for Lady Gaga for the wife, and yeah they sold out in like two minutes. Eventually she made another tour date for a few months later and I was able to get them then.
Definitely look into presale codes and other ways to get in (joining fan clubs) and crap like that if it something that you really want to make sure you can do. One trick I have learned, and this has worked out for me a couple times now, is to check Ticketmaster again the day before or day of the show. Often they haven't figured out the configuration of the seats in the arena or they have withheld some tickets for some reason, and you can just get pretty good seats for face value right before the show. Obviously there is the element of uncertainty involved with that scenario, but something to keep in mind.
When you see the look on your girl's faces when the lights go down it will be worth it. From up there, you'll have a look backstage as she comes up the steps possibly.
And it never hurts to stand in line at the box office day of. They almost always drop tickets right up to the lights going down.
my brother in law went to college with Tim McGraw so he has seen him bunches of times and gone backstage with family everytime. The tour manage for Tim McGraw is Taylors tour manager now. Brother in law going to try to get us backstage. My daughters will definitely poop their pants. That would make up for crappy seats. Thanks again for your help Sugarmag. It will be worth it regardless.
If you want to help a friend out, a backstage for Saturday night in Foxborough would be really appreciated...
Probably not threadworthy, but kind of a gamechanger
Ticketmaster is launching digital transfer for its North American tickets, whereby buyers can digitally transfer tickets to others at no cost, directly from their Ticketmaster accounts online. The platform, which digitizes every ticket, also addresses issues like ticket counterfeiting and scalper fraud.

Taylor just finished down in Columbia tonight. Been sold out for months, but they released tickets today, of course, and so I was in the pit. Had uppers, lowers, and floors to choose from. Pit did not come up when I did "best available," I had to search just in that section. Here is one of my pics. They were real cool about allowing me to record also.

They released day of show? You just went to ticketmaster and searched?
wow, you can even see the mothership in the background.
I got 4 tickets for this show about 4 hours after they went on sale to the public. Just happened to go on the Ticketmaster website that afternoon and 4 tickets came up in the 200 level. I have no idea how that happened. Was also able to get 4 more (400 level) when they went on sale at the Verizon box office. Only about 20 people were there for that. Luckily, I work near Verizon and saw a sign on the door the day before.
That happens for virtually every concert. Once the stage is built, they release production hold tickets.
yep. As Herman says, it happens frequently. They release tickets randomly, start checking about a week prior to the show. production tickets, tickets the band members were holding for friends and family who can't make it, and others they just hold. Day of the show they also sell the tickets that were apart of a VIP package that didn't sell. When she was in Charlottesville in 2010, friend got 4 seats row A on the floor day of the show. I'll see what I can get when they go on sale to the public months ahead of time, but if all I can pull is uppers then I say screw it and either scalp in or buy morning of, depending what the market looks like.
some more pics.
