100% in - these shows, the city and the venue were all too good last year to skip.

I'm with you. I like to jump around the country to see them perform in different venues/states, but had such a great time last year, going to head back to Charleston again this year.

Regret I gave up my pit tickets last year for a family event!

Re: **Official Charleston 2023**

Heavily considering making a run at this venue. For those that have been there before: It appears pretty intimate such that even the 300 section is ok seating. Is that correct? As well, how is it getting in/out of the venue? Are there decent Uber/Lyft stations? Also, how's the sound?

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Rejoined the WH and put in requests for the 300 section. Pretty sure I'll get those. For those that went previously how's the sound in there?

Potentially the best acoustics of any tour stop. Iím not an expert, but the sound was amazing last year.

Great to hear that!

I went to the D&T show a few years back but I think since then the place has added seating / expanded.

Looking forward to making these shows happen! Not sure what tier I'm requesting via WH though.

Yeah itís much better than it was before renovations. Much better sound, better amenities, better stage setup.

Yeah you’re good, the 300 section didn’t even sell out last year until a few weeks before the show. Although with no Charlotte, Jacksonville, or Raleigh this year I wonder if there will be more demand. Those are the closest big cities and none of them have dates this summer unlike last year when they all did

Yeah that is why I rejoined. The $35 is worth not stressing over tickets. Plus now I'm a new member so that should help

Re: **Official Charleston 2023**

Had WH pit tix for N1 last year, so can't comment too much on traffic getting in, since we were there way early to line up. Lots seemed pretty small, but probably about right for the smaller venue. It was about a 1/2 - 3/4 mile walk in IIRC. Outside of the downpour, getting out didn't seem too bad either. Certainly no reason NOT to go.

Not a bad seat in the house at this place. Very cool venue but not sure I can swing it again this year.

Re: **Official Charleston 2023**

Loved this venue last year and planning on coming down again. Looking at the ticket requests, it appears that the 300 level is not going to be GA like it was last year. Anyone else also getting that vibe or know anything? Mainly concerned because we have a group and the GA obviously made it much easier to coordinate and hang together up there.

It's a tossup between here and Wilmington for me. I think I'll put in requests for both and go wherever the WH gods decide to give me better seats.

1st time hitting this venue. Skipped it last year and it's as close to Savannah as it gets now. My home venues use to be Riverbend and Deer Creek from Louisville. Excited for the good things I am hearing for it!

Hitting both nights! Nt 1 Pit and Nt 2 300's.

Heard good things about last year so definitely making the trip for this. Enjoyed being floor for D&T in 2019. Will be cool to see the upgrades!

We walked from the Benefitfocus lot last year and it wasn't too bad, except for the torrential rain.

The lots themselves weren't terribly big, but it did take a little longer that I thought it would to get out.

The shuttle system works like a breeze from the lots. Busses in constant flow. Thought they did it really well.

Good amount of bars in walking distance from show to for after if you want to let traffic die down.

Potentially in for these. Not interested in the $150+ tickets but those $65 uppers are tempting
