My understanding is that the Warehouse ticket allocations are a 2 step process:

1) The WH decides who is confirmed or denied for tickets, and at what price tier. This is completely random, and seniority does not matter. Thus a 2016 account can get confirmed for the highest (best) price tier, and a day 1 member can get completely denied - it's totally random. Of course, opting out of consideration for lawn or lower price tiers reduces your chance of getting confirmed for tickets.

2) Among all of the people confirmed at a given price tier, the WH allocates tickets. For some shows this is random and for some shows this is done by seniority. The Warehouse announcement was simply clarifying that for this tour the N1s were random and the N2s were seniority. So a 2016 member who gets confirmed for lower level on N2 should not have as good of seats as a day 1 member who is confirmed for lower level on N2.

    Yes. To put things into perspective, I'm also a 2016 and got N1 Sec 104, but Row U so it's the second to last row.

    And that is completely fair. I feel lucky to even have gotten warehouse confirmations in the first place.

    I noticed after receiving my tickets (I bought two pairs of two lawn seats) that there are different lawn entry gates specified on the tickets. Presumably the entry point will be enforced? And if yes, should I assume that the lawn is all GA, so that even if we are forced to enter at different locations, we will be able to reconvene anywhere in the lawn? Thanks for the input.

    I haven't been, but I've heard that the lawn is completely separated from the reserved seating (different entrance, etc.). I'll let other people chime in who have been there.

    Thanks. Just to be clear, I'm talking about meeting up with others in the lawn who have different entry points. None of us have reserved seating, unfortunately.

    You can meet up with anyone in the lawn, regardless of where you enter.

    Anyone hitting up the Cubs game that weekend as well? They play in the afternoon, making it perfect timing for the shows!

    Any word on if tailgating allowed at the venue lot (Pre & Post show)? I know parking is tight but didn't have time to back read.

    Awesome idea I've always wanted to see Wrigley and my gf happens to be a Cubs fan. I'll probably be posting in here closer to June on how to "do" Chicago for a Cubs game and the shows.

    Wrigley Field is the greatest place on Earth. If you've never been and can swing it, GO.
