So happy they are playing here again, best ATL venue. Lets hope for 78 degree weather again in late July, haha

Just FYI, this year you can only request 2 tickets in the PIT. Which is a bummer.

Glad to see they are returning to this venue. Maybe the only positive side to DMB not selling as many tickets anymore is that they can continue to play in Alpharetta instead of at Lakewood.

The pit tickets were actually difficult to get last year for this show, at least for me, so I think this is a good move.

Pretty disappointed at no Tampa show.

The entire pavilion including pit are all $123.91. Seems crazy that every seat is the same price. Was it that way last year?

Glad they're hitting Alpharetta rather than Lakewood, though the tailgate/pregame scene is a little tougher. Also kinda rare to get them a little later in the tour isn't it? See y'all there.

Hmmm.... might have to give Alpharetta a shot this year instead of Raleigh. Seems like you guys like this venue a lot.

Had a blast with the gf last July. I'm excited for the quick Lyft ride from Buckhead up to the venue. The Lawn at Ameris Bank is extremely underrated in my opinion.

Alpharetta > Raleigh.

But I like both. And will be attending both as well.

Was thinking there were pricing tiers last year, single price is great, can't "randomly' end up with cheap uppers. Checked other venues and they still have tiers

Couldnt disagree more. Its complete bullshit that the front row behind pit is the same price as the last row of uppers. The solution isnt one price. Its multiple price tiers with WH opt out of any tier you dont want.

I can go for that, but without the opt out ability my 1998 membership constantly gets me "randomly" in the uppers, and they aren't that much cheaper. I'm all for different prices across the venue, weed out folks not willing to pay the OK $325/ticket price...and I just need one ticket :)

I've sold every ticket I've requested for this show the last few years, and usually get a pit off Ticketmaster for 250-300. Will most likely only request SPAC and see where I end up. I'm down with lawn for WPB if I go with my gf, and down for Gorge lawn for my first time as well... which means this would be the show I need pit from. Too much risk requesting.

Yeah your 98 account should get better seats. What if they offered opt outs for senior members but not for new ones? Weighted lotto chances so a 98 member would get 22 entries per requested level and a new member gets 1. 1 entry per year in the warehouse.

That’s awesome they play Alpharetta now instead of Lakewood, but I’m really bummed this isn’t a Memorial Day Weekend thing anymore. Traditions with friends have been ruined by the midweek date.

Re: ***Official Alpharetta 2020 Thread***
 
I hate schlepping up there in after work traffic on a weekday, but requested tickets after skipping last year. I didn’t want to skip two years in a row and didn’t want to travel to a show since were already going to St. Louis for Pearl Jam. Wish they’d get back to playing Saturdays here as I don’t mind driving up there at aLL in a weekend even though Lakewood is much closer to us since the venue is much better. I set a calendar alert to remember to buy VIP parking on the public in sale date since it doesn’t seem to be available through the Warehouse.

Great call. Doing the same.

No need for that, just assign Reserve seats from front to back based on seniority, regardless of price. Don't use this crock of a $10 tier difference to "randomly" put new members in lowers and "randomly" senior members in uppers.

Did you get off at North Springs, and Uber up the rest of the way?

North Springs, bus to North Point Mall, walk across 400 on pedestrian bridge. Could do Uber at any point.

Yeah, pretty sure pit last year was $115 and seats were $85 or so. That's what my Venmo said I charged my buddy who went with me and we sat in the front row of the second section of seats.
