I'm definitely going to this, is anybody else? Tickets go on sale April 28th. The show will no doubt be great but waiting six months for it to get here is gonna be tough.

It's opposite for me this time, but I will likely make the trip. Buffalo is about 2 and a half hours form here.

There's a pricing map up as well.
Tickets on sale April 28 at 10:00am, show is October 26 at 7:30pm.

I'm falling in love with the First Niagara Center site, all the information right there plainly typed. Wish it had a parking map though.  Maybe it's because I hate Ticketmasters. comp26.gif
Those prices include a $2.50 facility fee.  Interesting to see a fee included in the listed price.

The $2.50 isn't the only fee they'll be charging trust me. They still gotta add on the extra $10-$15 "service charge" on each ticket like everybody does now angry.gif

As for parking, it's not too bad. There's a lot right in front accross the street from the arena. There are also several more in the general area of the venue. How close you park and have to walk all depends on how much you're willing to pay for parking.

I'll be in UB when they come to Buffalo, so I'll have to go. I need to get some money though. I hope tickets are still available in  a month or two once I get a job.

You should still be able to get tickets in a few months. Tickets are going on sale six months before the show so they more than likely will not sell out that fast because that's too far in advance for a lot of people to make plans for a concert.

Buffalo fans -
For this show, the 28th is it?  I haven't gotten an email about a presale or anything.
To get up close, are we better off just buying from a broker?

Yes, tickets go on sale the 28th. You'll get e-mailed presale info this week. I've never bought tickets from a broker but i've heard they're rediculously expensive, so I would avoid that unless money is not an issue for you.

I got Row 9 on Ged's side.  I could only get 2.  The max allowed was 4, and they were coming in like row 25.

I still want to be right up front...I am going to take some other's advice and keep trying.

9th row at this arena is pretty decent.

Do you know which way the seats run?  Mine are 13 and 14.  I am curious if that is near the wall or center.
The seating chart does not have that much detail.

I didn't get the floor but i'm in section 103 which I don't mind at all. There isn't a band spot in the arena to see a concert anways unless you're way up top in the very last rows. I like sitting in the lower level for arena shows since it gives you some elevation and a better way to see and take the whole spectacle in.
