I'll be in London during the NYC-area shows, so it looks like this is my best option. Will be taking Amtrak and getting in around 3:30pm.

The next train back home is at 4:30 am after the show. Is there enough to do in the area that's open until 4:30 am?? :|

Anybody planning a meet-up before the show? I'm not familiar with the area since I'm coming from out of town.

Anybody know anything about parking in Buffalo? I gotta make a 2 hour drive to get there and want to arrive probably around 12-1 and hang out in the city a little while. Is there any place I can park until after the show?

I asked a similar question on the first page. I know nothing about the area so I may buy a parking permit just to make sure I have some place reserved.

I haven't a clue where to look for one. You could buy a pass from the arena when you buy a ticket but that option wasn't available when I bought mine. I wouldn't want to get there too early and have to drive around until arena parking opens up

For previous concerts that I've been to, I've looked up the arena page online and there's usually a section for parking by event. You can just print out the ticket at home and take it with you.

Not really sure. I got VIP silver for this show.  So I could be on the floor or on the side. Won't know until the day of the show.  I'm also going to the Columbus show which is two days later and I got 7th row for that.

I see what you mean. I tried to find parking and it doesn't seem that they sell it through the arena unless you're buying Sabres tickets. That kind of sucks. I hate to just drive up there and hope I find a spot somewhere. That's a bit scary.
