    wow, over 130$ for one ticket to see 2 guys play guitar. $20 in fees and $16 to ship a piece of paper.

    I haven't been on the lawn for quite a while. Not being a snob, just getting way to old for the lawn. I wasn't even aware that the sound was upgraded.

    It's a superb venue. I like going when it's 'sweatshirt cool' outside. It gives a really cool ambiance and makes it feel like I am on a campground.

    Blossom and Star Lake run neck and neck for me. Each are great for different reasons. Bummed I won't make the trip this year. First time since '09 I've missed it.

    Btw, don't do lawn. ESP for this show.

    Re: *** Official Blossom D&T 2017 ***

    No have to weigh in on the sound discussion. Yes it's designed for the Cleveland orchestra and I get what the point is about "how sound works", but the fact on how sound works is exactly why sitting lawn in the middle up to about half way up is a much better sound than the edges of the pavilion. Not only is the sound on the edge of the pavilion not balanced as well because you are not centered on the speakers , but you also get an annoying background sound of what's happening outisde of the pavilion. As in the concessions and other people outside not part of the show.

    At least middle lawn you get a balanced sound and are surrounded by people actually watching the show. The caveat being that lawn fans tend to be less well behaved.

    Anyway, to really enjoy the sound quality of the pavilion. At a rock concert you need to be at least a half section in from any side. And if you're on the lawn get in early; being on the sides of the lwn is the worst possible option. I got stuck out there for a James Taylor concert years ago and it was not enjoyable. it was that show that we just decided to suck it up and pay for a seat so as to not worry about general admission.

    Got confirmed for upper pavilion. Not sure on the section/seat yet. Preferred lowers, but for a first time ticket request I can't complain!

    Got lowers for Blossom. 2009 account, opted out of lawn, checked priority for this show. No other shows requested. I am happy, let's just hope lower doesnt mean the extreme edges of the pavilion.

    It almost always is to the side. I think they save a good chunk of the middle section for something else (premiums maybe, radio giveaways, etc).

    This is the first time I've ever got uppers at Blossom. 1998 account. I am hopeful that will at least mean a middle section this time around.

    I know they're always to the side and prepared for it, but it would at least be nice to have a seat closer to the inner aisle. One year I got the aisle seat on the outer edge and it was the absolute worst! Have to move anytime some random casual fan has to piss or grab a beer. Either way, for this tour, I will be content with my seat, not trying for upgrades on ticketmaster....too much of a pain in the ass to dick around with trying to unload extras.

    you will be in 35 row A or B. That's where '98 account landed us in '15 and '16.

    I'd be interested to see how accurate this is and how consistent the WH is. Personally, it seems to me our results are all over the board with row/seat assignments.

    My friend and I have both landed in sections 34 or 36 between rows A-D off our accounts the last 2 years. He has a 12/98 account and I have 1/99 account. We are both got uppers again this year. Sucks to be put in this tier 3 years in a row with our accounts.

    This would actually be quite fantastic. Might be nice to have a center seat for a change, even if it is in the uppers.
