Re: ***Official MSG 2022 Thread***

On the opposite end of stressing over tickets you want but can't have, I will say that I would not worry at all over getting stuck with tickets you have but don't want--I have never once had a problem getting rid of my uppers at MSG

    Join the WH right now for $35 and you'll likely get tix

    OR

    Just wait until October when folks are trying to get rid of their first pairs after they score better seats or pits...happens every year at almost every show.
    Thought about doing this, not sure itís worth it to do to get probably awful seats. I canít imagine a new account will pull anything half decent.

    this isn't how it's typically worked out in practice

    Re: ***Official MSG 2022 Thread***

    the story and received wisdom for years has been that new accounts are confirmed for "good seats" at a higher rate, or at least on par with, accounts with tons of seniority.

    seniority only affects seating quality *within the level you are confirmed for*. It has nothing to do with which level you'll be confirmed for, which is "random," ahem, (but see note above about new accounts seeming to have better/equal luck).

    as best as I can tell, this fall tour does not have a "priority" option, but please correct me if I'm wrong on that, all.

    Re: ***Official MSG 2022 Thread***

    (and by the way my guess as to why no "priority" option for this tour is that everyone would use it on MSG, and they don't, for whatever reason, want the two MSG shows to only be made up of the most senior members, despite me thinking that might be cool)

    Stayed there last year. Great spot! We had a room that faced MSG. Hopefully you found a decent rate. We ended up going with the Doubletree on W 29th because the rates were crazy at Fairfield.

    This may be a stupid question but want to make sure. If I Request VIP and get declined I can go into the regular lottery and have a chance there as well correct?

    I want good seats this year damnit

    if you check the box to do so, yes. Peter can weigh in; my general take on all things warehouse is that if you tell them you'll accept lesser tickets (by, for example, ticking a box that says you're fine entering the regular lottery if not confirmed for Premium), they will give you lesser tickets. Just one man's take.

    Oh yeah duh I see the "Consider this order for selection in the regular event if not selected for the Premium Ticket Package" box got it.

    I am going to go for it. I will potentially pay $325 a ticket to not deal with the Ticketmaster bullshit

    right but what I'm telling you (which may or may not be correct) is that if you tick that box you'll end up with 95 dollar uppers, not 325 dollar premiums

    FWIW I really want premiums, and I'm not checking the box

    don't think it will be a more difficult ticket than other MSG years. the number of people who would not go to MSG but for the fact that there aren't other nearby shows is not big enough to make a tangible difference (IMO, of course).

    Re: ***Official MSG 2022 Thread***

    last years shows were very hard to come by
    I've been doing this for 20 years and have a pretty good grasp on how difficult tickets will be to acquire.

    hope I'm dead wrong

    I agree that if you wanted anything but uppers last year it was extremely difficult.

    My first year with the WH I got pit tickets at Blossom. Gotten pits twice since (bigger pits--Gorge and Chicago). Other than that haven't even gotten lowers.

    Mustang Harrys was awesome before the shows last year. Pretty much a tailgate for the show and it's a 2 min walk from the garden. Everyone there before the show was going to the concert and the bar was only playing Dave. Great atmosphere.

    I do expect it to be much harder than last year.

    $42.00 for premium this year... the Fall tour ticket prices went down yet the "convenience fee" stayed the same. Oh, and they aren't shipping them to you (for free) anymore.

    Matt, MSG is my #1 indoor arena.

    The energy for literally any show is electric, and DMB brings the heat.

    2 of my top 5 all time shows have been at MSG.
