Right in the middle of 6 shows in 8 days where they have to get straight on the bus to beautiful Dayton, OH. My expectations are not high, but I cannot wait.

UC 2012 might be the worst DMB show I've ever attended. Very close to the bottom.

Won't be able to make this work and that's OK. Alpine was fun.

Of all the shows I've seen, those 2 are the worst DMB shows ever. My wife's first show was that Northerly one and she was 8 months pregnant in the sweltering heat. I really, really hope Dave has a voice and the song selection is light years better than it was at that show.

I’m giving the United Center another chance because I’ll be in the midwest on a gig anyway. But I still have scars from last time

That was the worst show I've ever seen, setlist and energy were just awful. 124/124 and I've seen every show they've played at Northerly Island too haha. REDEMPTION TIME!

Does anyone have recommendations for best seats to go for? Looking for dedicated seats (i.e. no standing/Pit/GA) but with the closest/best view. Never done a United Center concert before.

Well, like most arenas, if you aren’t on the floor you’re either a couple football fields away or have a terrible view on the side.

Take the center if you can, the sound and view will be much better than being “closer” on the side.

I was on the floor in 2012 and it was a good experience, not too over crowded. I do not recall how much of a pain it was to grab a beer or go to bathroom. I believe they had beer stands on the floor in the back if I remember correctly, but that was 10 years ago.

Like others have said, the sound is great. I saw Luke Combs there last November, but he had a rotating stage in the center. So seats didn't matter.

Re: ***Official Chicago 2022 Thread***

The warehouse prices for tickets are:
$135.00 GA FLOOR STANDING
$135.00 LOWER RESVD
$135.00 FLOOR RESVD
$135.00 CLUB LVL
$95.00 LOWER/CLUB
$75.00 UPPER RESVD1
$49.50 UPPER RESVD2

Does anyone ever buy from the public sale? Im in charge of getting tickets and I need 7 but warehouse only lets me get 6 max. Am I able to buy 7 tickets together from the public sale?!

Good luck getting that many together and them being a decent seat. You're better off getting a few pairs on WH Ticket Boards (don't request tickets) that will be close then 7 together.

INSANELY low expectations for this show. When was the last good Chicago show? If you exclude Alpine, it’s been a LONGGGG time since Chicago caught a real great DMB show. Throw in that this is a fall tour, plus mid-week, plus United Center…have a feeling this one will be mailed-in hardcore.

That being said, I’ll probably still be there.

If anyone got denied, I got 2 Upper Reserved (Lower 300s). Happy to eat the Convenience Fee and shipping fees. Plan to buy floors.

$75 each - $150 for the pair. I'm in Chicago and can deliver once I get them.

PM if interested.

Yeah I have the same question. Got $135 Club level and not sure where that is.

EDIT: according to Ticketmaster, there will be a pit, then 6 floor sections. Still don’t know where club level is.

Oh wow so they charged $135 for the 200 level. And I don’t even know where they’ll stick me. I really hate that you don’t get sec or seat assignments.
