I guess I will settle for something ordinary. I cannot believe the VIP was sold out in seconds!!!!

Gotta keep trying...I had lots of offers in VIP...it's just that most were in the 8-10 range, and I wouldn't pay $500 for that.

I got Row 9 on Geddy's side for the St. Paul/Minneapolis show. I was scared because when I first clicked to get my tickets I got row nine and accepted them, but then for some reason I was taken to another page that said I had reached it by pushing the back button, so I couldn't get any tickets at any price (Damn Scalpers). After 10 minutes of trying though, I got row nine back. This will be the second best seat I have had for a rush concert, only behind 8th row in Winnipeg

There's nothing wrong with settling for an ordinary ticket. There's always a chance as the show gets closer for really good seats to open up. I guess i'm an easy compromiser because I took the first seats that were offered to me in the presale. Yes, it's nice to sit up close but the main thing is making sure that you have tickets even if they're not what you hoped for. At least you'll still be able to see the show.

I agree with you guys. I was a little frustrated, but I will keep trying. I was able to see them up close once before, and it was really great! The most important thing is to go to the show, of course!!!!! I will have fun no matter where I am sitting.

I know they give you a bunch of Rush swag with the VIP but I just couldn't imagine paying upwards of $500 for one ticket. That's just insane :wacko:

I got pretty good seats for the Atlanta show.  I may make the trek up to Greensboro but those tickets have not gone on sale yet.

Wait...you'll be able to scalp better later.  Also, because these are on the floor, you don't get the advantage of being higher up than those in front of you.  Plus, seats in section 108-107 or 116-117 will be cheaper and better.

I'm signed up for the newsletter and they said that there is presale for those who are and I could buy tickets at 10:00 am but I haven't received an email or anything. Am I not looking in the right spot or something?

Also, I could be wrong, but I think most places let you cancel an order within 24 hours.  I've done that a few times where I've taken seats that were good but not great, kept at it and got better seats, and then canceled the first order.

Got Pit Row DDD (4th row center) for the Atlanta show.  Yay!  :-)  I feel pretty fortunate considering that there are a grand total of 106 seats in the first 3 rows of the pit.

There should be a link if they sent you an e-mail that will take you to the presale page.

This thread also has all the links to the presales:

I'm in Row 2 of Sec 104.  Didn't have a whole lot of dough to blow, so I'm pretty jealous of those of you who are getting floor seats and such.

I hope to see some of you at the Chicago show, though!

I got 2 for 111, row 11

It took a long time but I scored two in Row 10 on the floor on Alex's side for St. Paul. Good enough! Best I've done in a presale since 2007.

I just have to wait to figure out if seats 9 and 10 are closer to the end of the row or closer to the middle of the row. I never remember how they run the seat numbers on the floor there.

With two kids in college and last heading there in the fall, I just couldn't swing presale for Newark at $240 for two tickets.  Just to torture myself, I did submit for tickets and would have gotten section 7 or 20.  Ugh!

Was trying to complete my little trifecta.  Took my middle child to CA for his first show and got my youngest tickets to Swift for the Red tour (she took a friend to her first concert).  The last one left is my oldest and he's graduating college this spring so it was going to be a surprise graduation present to his first concert.

Oh well.  Will keep an eye on the after market over the next few months.

Bummer, I just pulled the trigger on Seat 1 and 2 in Row 3 Section F. Guess I should have waited!

My question too, though I'm looking at the lower priced ones that are further away.

Just tortured myself some more.  Would have gotten section 7 row 22 at Newark.

Thanks, I figured it out. I got 2 tickets in section 119 row 11 at the First Niagara Center on June 10th!
