I'm a 2/00 member. I think it was a random assignment or something but yeah its not too fun way back on the field. The sound isn't great and its all ground level so it's not easy to see. Add to the fact that people were kind of walking around behind us the whole time and chatting it up. It wasn't the best. A3-5 and B3-5 are the best sections I think.

Well the good news is that most of the presales were selling a bunch of B/C Section tickets so I'm hopeful that the WH will have some good seats!

I think it'll be the usual 1 night seniority and 1 night random.

Slowbutspeeding
04-01-2009, 04:34 PM
Well I guess time will tell. I am just worried because between the AMEX and all the Red Sox Pre sales seemed like the fronts were going, but I'm sure the WH wouldn't screw us that bad...

Rickmiller15BOSOX
04-01-2009, 06:35 PM
I hear that on the field seats. I went on through the Redsox pre-sale on the first day about 30 minutes after they went on sale, and couldn't pull field seats. But they were all over craigslist. Oh well.

Looking forward to hitting up both nights. Should be a good time as always.

I don't think I will be that lucky. Just passed the 9 year mark. I would DIE if I could snag some seats like that.

However one thing I think I might have going for me is that a lot of people who had 98 memberships selected "best available" and got grandstands. So if seniority is done 1 night or both I will at least have a leg above others being I selected field only.

That would be pretty awesome! I really hope the WH comes thru with some nice fields for me. Got 4 together for N2 on the field for the girlfriend who's a big fan, but her younger sister and friend we are trying to show a good good time.

I wish the WH wouldn't keep us in the dark as to what nights seating is done by seniority.

Well I emailed to ask for the hell of it and this is what they said:




We are sorry, we do not announce the seating method per show in advance!

I was just listening to EEI...they did an intro for the "white corporate concert series" basically shitty on the phish show and previous shows. But some how the neglected to make fun of DMB this time around or there previous appearance or Neil Diamond.

I find it interesting the backlash that these shows are getting in the Boston media.

04-08-2009, 03:11 PM
Maybe backlash is the wrong word....more of lack of support from the media

every other concert gets a lot of press when it was in there, and it seems like the combo of DMB/Phish is pretty much a laughing stock because it doesn't cater to an older generation. What the suits and pant suits on the news and whoever types for the papers need to realize that the original DMB show and this combo they got going on is going to bring more money into the Fenway area than any of those other shows. Because both crowds want to tailgate and will go to all the bars in the area before and maybe after (depending on how they are gonna get home)

But you would never even know that these shows are happening or if they are going to be successful because they are treating them like its ajoke and the place is gonna be empty.

Slowbutspeeding

well, I was 2nd row (center I'm pretty sure) in '06 and didn't do vip, so I'm not sure if anything has changed. For some reason I thought VIPs were not very good last time. But, I don't think anyone knows as we don't have locations yet.

my guess is the field is yellow..... grandstand is green...or every ticket is different.... and in that case they are all the colors of the rainbow...

For those of you going into the city early on Friday I was talking to Yeedog about going on a brewery tour of Sam Adams. It only costs a Two Dollar donation and they give you 4 or 5 pitchers to share after the quick 15 minute tour. Details are below. Let me know if anyone is interested.

Done it before. Real good time. And yes its a $2 donation for the tour and you get to sample 3 different kinds of beer and keep a small glass.

the warehouse just posted a link to the etix.com (who regular folks buy fenway concert tickets through) they released more tickets to both nights..i looked and was having trouble finding god pairs but plenty of singles...N1 in particular has access to the club level, but not the suites. I spent a night in the suites the first time around its a good time, the whole level is. The bars are open and there is a merch stand up there and stuff felt nice to be away from the madness that it will be elsewhere

Out of curiosity, I headed over to LiveNation, and I just pulled section A5 row 23 for N2 (just a single ticket). I didn't buy it since I've already got a pair (granted, they're in one of the roof boxes).

It always pisses me off that I spend the better part of a Saturday morning cursing at livenation/ticketmaster as I sit in virtual waiting rooms and consider myself lucky when I get craptastic seats, and then a week before the show I can just mosey on over and pick up some pretty great seats. Gah!

sneaksbeac
05-21-2009, 07:23 PM
Who knows what there game plan is for these shows. maybe they were trying to gauge the interest to see if was even worth to open those sections up to the public, now that it is closer radio stations are talking about it and the single is getting closer they release em so that people will be drawn in to give it a shot. Plus I just got my weekly live nation email that said "MORE SEATS RELEASED" and maybe if someone was on the fence and saw that would push them over...when really you've been able to pull a pair for N2 pretty much since the shows went on sale...all be it "obstructed view"


my question is for the folks who went for the VIP...where abouts are they sending you for the reception?

any plans for pre partying? my buddy is having a party at his apartment which is right across the street from fenway (across boylston) - i think the baseball bar during the day will be really cool. its the bar that is located in dead center field on the warning track and they have a garage door thats open that looks onto fenway. catch the stage setup and possibly soundcheck

It was implied that it's somewhere inside Fenway. It just says to show up at a particular gate to "gain access to the VIP reception area." I'll see on Friday. :nod

Also, I thought I read where someone said they could see the backstage area from Jillian's last time. Does that sound right?

keep on looking - you have a couple of days. i'm sure they'll turn up.

but call the WH again tomorrow and let me know what happened. you never know - maybe they'll believe you. they could also have a rep go with you to your seats to show that no one is in them.

good luck.

i know my friend forgot his tickets one time to a show and just showed them the credit card and they gave him tickets at the window. maybe i can be so lucky. i got my fingers crossed and i haven't stopped looking.

they could probably cancel your current tix and just issue you new ones there.

patsfan39
05-26-2009, 09:26 PM
id hope they would do that but

Will Warehouse Ticketing replace lost, stolen, or destroyed tickets?

Sorry, but lost or stolen tickets cannot be replaced. If your tickets are mutilated or destroyed we can only replace them if you can provide proof (such as the remains of the tickets). Any claims for replacement tickets must be made prior to the show date. If the Warehouse staff judge your claim to be valid, arrangements will be made for you to receive replacements at the venue Box Office on the show date only.


is right from the FAQs. so :dunno and i dont think i actually ever got a WH ID card. i just checked my stuff and there isnt anything like that. it sounded realistic though.

they used to give them out back in the day with new membership packages. i think they stopped it some years ago.

doors open at 500 according to etix.com..and I believe the numbers will go (when looking at the stage) left to right...but don't quote me on the seats..


I'm guessing the timing is sound check sometime tonight.... tomorrow Willie on as close to 630 as possible for like 45 mins... change over and then DMB on as close to 8 as possible... playing (with encore break) till 10:59:59

I remember seeing that as well and I thought it was 10:30 when the show ended. I could be remembering wrong and it was 11 the whole time. Though sneaksbeac's search did reveal that shows at Fenway have ended at 11 and 10:30. So I guess we'll find out.

The 30 minute earlier start time does make sense for a 10:30 finish though.
