Tickets are hard to come by inside the shed, for any type of seat. Allowing large requests like that (8 seats is a LOT) is kind of absurd for the type of demand for this venue.

    IMO balcony is preferable outside of Section 1, 2, or 3

    Yes, any seat inside is good and will be in high demand. Hardest ticket of the tour by far.

    First timer for Spac, I have a buddy that lives in the area now, so it seemed like a good time to pull the trigger. I've got my 2 nights of requests in. Who is ready to be disappointed together?

    Will the stage really come out into the pit this year?

    Re: *** Offical SPAC 2023 Thread ***

    Hi,*
    Emailing over a serious concern with the current listed ticket limits for SPAC.

    Currently, it is showing that someone can request up to EIGHT (8) seats in the balcony (Tier 3) for the show.* This is a higher ticket limit than the LAWN.

    I am very concerned as this doesn't make any sense for such an in demand venue.* This will drastically reduce the number of members selected via the lottery to receive tickets.

    It has been 2 or 4 tickets for forever, and to have a higher limit than even the lawn is quite perplexing.

    I am hoping this was just some sort of error or oversight and will be updated soon.

    Can you advise?* Would love to hear your feedback and intentions with this.

    Please feel free to call me to discuss or get more information from me.

    thank you and looking forward to a great tour!!*

    They all show different set ups. Looks like it will be different this year

    Eric Church and Goo Goo Dolls have the standard stage setup, so maybe a mistake

    would think the more people that email the WH about the ticket limit issue the better. Feel free to use my email or send something similar!

    Looking to hit up SPAC for the first time this year. For those of you who have camped in the area before, what are some of the best places to do so? Thanks!

    Is one able to just go to the races or do you need tickets for that too?

    Tickets. Well, I assume so. I've only been to races at Belmont and Keenland and certainly needed one.

    Some info below. Imagine there must be folks on the board that have been.

    Tickets are around $10 for GA. Races start around 1pm and are every 40 min. You can bring in any booze or food as long as itís not glass

    if anyone is curious, this was the WH response to me email concerning ticket limits:

    "Hello Ryan,

    Yes, the SPAC balcony ticket limit = 8."


    classic WH.

    That’s fucking crazy. 8 ticket request limit to the hardest ticket on your.

    What in the hell are they thinking?

    Re: *** Offical SPAC 2023 Thread ***

    loved staying at Lees last year. the RV people want hookups this year so we are having to relocate.

    booked some tiny cabins and an RV spot at Saratoga Escape Lodges and RV resort.

    reviews are iffy, but it is what it is when you have a group of 10.

    anyone stayed there?

    Tempted to try for these two shows…albeit would be a bit on the budget side for a hotel.

    Any experience doing the travel from ALB airport area to and from? Or not even worth the hassle?
