The venue is great. The crowd is great. The shows are great.

The parking is poison.

    We've never had much of an issue with parking outside of Bristow...which is, of course, or home venue...

    Also love the outside merch tent...makes so much sense.

    Everyone complaining about parking here never tailgates properly apparently. You don't leave right when the show ends. You pop the trunk, grab some high quality Italian meats, a chair and crank some tunes and hang out for an hour or so.

    Re: ***Official Mansfield 2022 Thread***

    There's a couple of hotels by Stop n Shop that are about a mile from the venue. If you want to tailgate in your hotel room and uber up around 5pm or so, no problemo. Getting back to your hotel after the show, however, will be a bitch and you might have to walk the highway.

    By the way, for you out-of-towners, there's a cool sports bar a mile away called Jake and Joes and they have like 25 TV's all over the place. If you come in early Friday or even Thursday or are hanging out on Saturday and looking for something close by, it's a decent joint.

    I have two rooms reserved at Fairfield Marriott (currently sold out) that I may be releasing. If I do, I will repost to this thread so maybe someone can jump on them.

    We stayed there last year - new hotel and quick 10-15 min walk to venue

    Section 4, Row C baby! I'd never get those seats in the WH, well maybe the earlier years. Later years I'd be in Section 13. So happy!

    if you are right next to the boxes in sections 1 or 3, would the boxes block your view?

    How did everyone make out? I scored a pair of 1P for Mansfield. If anyone has a pair of pits and either want seats or want Hartford pits, let me know - still super early in the season but would consider some trades.

    Yeah, but mostly Platinum or resell tix. Hard to find good seats at a decent price. I had an easier time with Alpine N2 and Gilford N1 today. I suspect lots of speculative buying by resellers. Mansfield is less and less desirable each year IMHO.

    I was lucky enough to snag 1P but really hoping to upgrade to pit tickets. If anyone wants seats Iím happy to trade and sweeten the deal since those 1Pís arenít exactly close to pit

    Yea because they are platinum seats for section 6 row S. F that, those seats arenít worth a dime over $135. Awful ticketing policy with Mansfield this year, they are slapping ďplatinumĒ on anything inside. So stupid

    I really don't understand Ticketmaster and their dynamic pricing at all. I got into their queue 10 minutes before onsale, got in a couple of minutes after 10, and snagged 3 tickets on the aisle in section 10 for $50 each plus fees. Looking on their site now, seat 4 is going for $95 plus fees.

    So right as tickets go on sale, aisle seats are $50+, but more than 24 hours later when there's a bunch of unsold seats, a seat right on side of that is $40 more? The only thing I can think of is my seats would be obstructed, but up that high you're looking more at the screens than the stage anyway.

    Anyway, now that I'm done dealing with Ticketmaster because my seats and parking are secured I'm excited for what will be my first DMB show in 6 years!

    This will be my like either 20th or 25th or somewhere in that area DMB show in Mansfield and tailgating at the venue is almost as much fun as actually watching the concert. I simply cannot wait for the show.

    The $95 open air price is wild especially given how many seats are still left. I am sure these will all drop to $50 plus fees closer to the show.

    I agree, I couldn't believe it when I saw $95 plus fees for seats where the lawn used to be. Old man yelling at a cloud alert, but my first DMB show had Ben Folds Five and Beck as openers, at the height of DMB's popularity, and my ticket was $41.35 after fees for 31st row on the field. I plugged that ticket price into an inflation calculator and that would put an equivalent seat at $71.32, nevermind over $100 for glorified lawn.

    These are awesome seats - i had the inside aisle seats a few years back and it was amazing. You will enjoy these thoroughly.

    Oh, thanks man. Yeah I saw on the ViewFromMySeats and they look awesome.

    On the flip side, I just got Sec 14 for OneRepublic and I hope that I don't have obstructed view. Tickets were only $40 and they have a ton of hits so it was a no brainer.
