    Just a data point, I did Premium Instants a few years ago for WPB, sold them to Matthew before seat assignments, and they ended up in Section 1, in row R or something, and in the middle of the row, so well outside the width of the stage.

    Hopefully this year is different and they still have good tickets left over that were refunded

    Thanks for heads up. I had friends and family tickets last year, well 2019, and they were pretty good. Hope these are good too. Just glad to be in the lower reserved for n2. We had pit for n1 last year and it was amazing.

    I heard that Tampa is a pretty easy pit to get, is that correct? I'll be flying solo and don't want to request through Warehouse for this one cause I don't want to get stuck with a crap seat to unload, I'd rather just wait for the TM sale.

    For a single ticket I like your chances. Iíve been able to pull pairs of pits a lot recently through TM.

    They were sold out when I bought at about 10:10am. In fact, I couldn't find any pavilion seats for two or more tickets together. I ended up purchasing lawn tickets for my crew, in hopes to find pavilion or pit tickets for resale.

    Yeah. Available until 10:04-10:05. I logged in just to check out what they had available. The section 10 pairs they had looked solid too.

    Must have gone super fast. Keep checking the presale allotment for a little bit and then also try the general sale.

    Requested pits got $90 uppers for Tampa through WH. I think this is the 4th time in a row, for some reason I always do better for WPB through WH which makes zero sense.

    Queued at 169 for Citi presale, tried and failed several times to cart pit pairs. Finally after about 10 minutes I got a pit single on a restock. Confirmation page was at 10:13. Looks like I'm all set for the Florida run, can't wait.

    Last time I was in the Tampa lawn was for Zac Brown Band in 2012 or 2013. Crowd was fine, lawn is plenty big, sound was rough. I believe they've had to make a ton of adjustments over the years because of complaints from the "nearby" houses.

    Sound may be better now, obviously, but it was pretty bad back then.

    I am the complete opposite. Also I was able to snag a pair of pits for Tampa. 3rd year in a row.

    WPB told me to stay in the parking lot...

    Too late to edit above but I just got one. Per research, doesnít look like any real awful seats in the reserved section.

    Now, whatís the best way to get to/from the venue? Any bars do shuttles from downtown Tampa?

    Lawn is terrible in Tampa, reserved seats all have pretty good sound. The pit is enormous if you're into that sorta thing, and the sound is very good from the back of the pit.

    I don't think there are any shuttles going to and from the venue from downtown, it's not that close to downtown. There's a Wing House (discount Hooters) across the street that's a popular hangout before and after shows. Also a Five Guys if you want a quick burger before you go in. We usually get a sub from Wawa down the street a little bit prior to going in, and there's also a Taco Bus (local chain, very good food) across the street from Wawa. Parking can be a bit of a shit show, but the nice thing is it's free after 4. Just be prepared for rain, and be prepared to sweat a LOT.

    Got confirmed for upper reserved, don't really care where we sit, just want a reserved seat and we've seen enough shows in the lowers so that doesn't really matter to us anymore. Happy to see some live music again, especially now that we're both fully vaxxed!

    Yea, if you're looking to come directly from downtown/Ybor, the only options I can think of are take a $30(?) Uber each way or drive to the venue and park there. There are a couple popular places in the Brandon area (near the venue) where people pregame, but it's mostly just the casino and WingHouse.

    If you want to park at the venue, USE THE MLK BLVD ENTRANCE. Avoid 301 and that entrance if you can. I tell people this every single year. If you're coming from the north or I-4, you're better off taking 75 south to MLK than going through the 301 entrance.

    And yes, it's likely going to be hot as Satan's ballsack. HYDRATE...HYDRATE...HYDRATE.

    Usually if it rains it's during the mid afternoon and ends before show time, but there's always a chance it could rain during the show. If you park at the venue, and the lots are muddy from rain, follow the attendants to a T because they'll keep you on dry ground. I went off venturing on my own one year and got stuck in the mud and luckily was able to get pushed out. But if you can't get unstuck yourself, you have to wait til after the show for tow trucks to pull people, which can take a long fucking time.

    Also, the line to go through security and get your tickets scanned seems to get longer every year. Don't cut it close. Be prepared to possibly wait 20+ min in line. You also have a decent walk from the parking lot to the venue, and the line is usually shorter if you go the back (west) way, which is closer to the MLK entrance (another reason to enter/leave the venue through this entrance).

    I think I've covered all the bases lol. Have some fucking fun, everyone!

    Most things in Florida are a nightmare, we're just used to it because we live here. Rideshare after the show will expensive because of surge just like anywhere else. I actually used to do pretty well after shows at the amphitheater when I was driving for Uber.

    The venue itself is pretty standard. Just one side of it has way more traffic than the other, hence my recommendations. It's actually one of the quickest and easiest venues I've been to to get in and out of if you know what you're doing.
