Chickey and Pete's is the name.

The place is called "Xfinity Live" and it is owned by the mighty Comcast corporation.  http://www.xfinitylive.com/


Nothing to write home about, but its big, the location is good (park once, go there before and/or after for beers/average food) and if youre into sports and anything is going on, has huge TVs everywhere.

I've heard there's been a Lerxt sighting once or twice over the years there :)

lerxt, are you going to the Philly show? I may be meeting some Philly fans there!

I'll be at the Philly show! Through the magic of VIP I have no idea where I'm sitting other than "the first 10 rows" but I hope to meet a few of you up there!

Kenny! That is frustrating but at least you are close! I may be road tripping to Philly. Hope I get to meet you and the Philly TRF crew. A lot of TRFers looks like in Philly?

Congrats to the VIPs, enjoy, I have platinum for NJ, hoping to add Philly, I'm checking hoping they've added tix, but

WTF is with the WFC ticket page...it's like right out of 1997??

Very buggy, and now it's got me in a virtual waiting room due to heavy demand...

AT TWELVE THIRTY A.M.

WTF??

Congrats Jester...I expect to be making the road trip to Philly, but am not local the the area. There is a Broad Street subway line that goes from downtown (sorry if that's a tell Philly!) to the WFC.

My friend does need to bail, so there is a single Philly ticket available, a very low row in section 112 (lower level), just a few rows from the floor and three sections from the stage.

It is a venue platinum ticket, the face value is 205 plus 39 charges and delivery/handling. He said he is agreeable to a little less than cost. Please PM me if interested,  thanks.

I will be there!  A good friend has an extra ticket (silver package, so seats should be great) and he offered it to me.  To my great delight, flight + hotel is unbelievably cheap.  So I booked it!

Extra Ticket still available for less than my pal's cost above, thanks!


BTW, Stubhub now has ten seats in row 1 in 112 for $318 plus shipping, and there are no more venue platinum tix now for 112. They had been there all along until now.

I only see venue platinum section 114 on venue site for about $340 ea. Since they still have platinums guessing they didn't send them thru general on sale yet?

Someone must have just bought out the row for $250 per seat and selling for $318, less stub hub fee, that's barely break even? Does that make sense?

Anyone staying at the Airport Marriott?  That's where I'll be.  Getting in early-ish - I booked an early morning flight just in case there are delays.  It would completely suck to miss the show due to airline fuckery.

Me too. I have a ticket, but I'm looking to upgrade. If I get a new one, mine'll be on StubHub.

Well, here's an interesting update. The good news is I just made $200. The bad news is that now I don't have a ticket. I threw mine on StubHub, priced it $200 more than I paid, on a whim, and it sold. This could get interesting . . .

Well with an extra $200 you should be ok!

Yeah, they Philly market I believe wins for the toughest ticket. Its has relatively fewer seats compared to other shows (keeping in mind days remaining until the show). Recently the market has gone crazy, for a while cheapest seat $220 and recently under 80 seats left on the hub while show still 10 days away.

Compared to TO, where a few weeks ago plenty of lower bowl seats for well under $200. And Philly fans have an option 1+ hour away in NJ, but also expensive seats.

Clearly not enough shows for demand in the NE.

I have some questions. Looking for some help, Philly people.

- where is the pre-show party? Is there a tailgating group or is there a restaurant / bar where people are meeting?

- I am flying in and will have a rental car. I'm staying west of Philly near King of Prussia. Should I drive in an park, or should I take mass transit in from somewhere? It looks like with the different venues together, there is quite a bit of parking. The Phillies are off that night, and obviously, the Eagles aren't playing. So, won't the parking be less crowded?

The Phillies wouldn't have affected the parking situation anyway, since they suck (and monumentally so).  Parking shouldn't be a problem.
