**Official Tampa/West Palm Swing 2019 Thread**

Rounding out the 5 Florida shows are 2 smoldering staples: Tampa & WPB

Bring on the afternoon t-storm to cool it down to a shivering 80 degrees please!

    Bad idea to use WH request for any of these three shows? Better chance with public sale/boards?

    New Member? They love you, put in for N1, maybe even N2 for Pits

    Old Member? At least try for N2, should be able to unload uppers. Don't bother with N1, you'll "Randomly" end up in the last row, far corner

    But remember to check the box!

    Thanks for that Peter. Iím a new member. After reviewing the policy Iím leaning toward putting in for Wpb n1 and gorge n1 and 3 seeing as those will not be based on seniority and then running the rat race for the rest of my shows

    Regular lots were free, VIP/Premium was $40 if I recall correctly.

    I won a 2 ticket hospitality ticket package to any show of my choice for this summer. Thinking of using it for n2 and requesting n1 from warehouse. Would be coming from bham, al. How fun is the WPB venue to those that have been? I am only used to oka mtn and lakewood in atl.

    We have always loved WPB. We will probably have to skip it this year bc we are going to the Gorge, but it's a blast

    It's great! Lots of people from all over the country. Really not a bad seat. I've been in centered uppers and have been able to enjoy the show with great views. It's beautiful seeing the sunset over all the palm trees lining the venue.

    Debating whether or not to go to Tampa. With so many FL dates, this one seems the least appealing for some reason.

    Thank you all for the info! We pulled the trigger and booked flights last night! Debating on what kind of tickets to request. 17 year member for n1 dont know of I should do premiums or just pit/reserves.

    Tampa has a good history of getting fun shows. There have been a few years I preferred the Tampa show over the West Palm shows performance and song wise.

    With that said, it's a Wednesday in Tampa. So, the tailgate scene is shortened and it's a hard out at 11 pm curfew.

    N1 tickets are much easier to come by. Counting on seniority n2 is a gamble. High request show with very small pit and fairly limited lowers available. A ton of lowers are sold as season passes by the venue.

    Okay I think I will stick with n2 for my hospitality tickets since they are the band allotment and do n1 warehouse. Thanks for all the help guys!

    Tampa is definitely top 3 of the 5 Florida shows. I'd prob rank them:

    1. WPB N2
    2. WPB N1/Tampa
    3. Jacksonville
    4. Pensacola

    Then again if you don't want to be in sweltering heat, Jax/Pensacola prob look a little more inviting. But Tampa and WPB are absolutely tour staples...

    Just need n1 tickets for WPB. I know its random for that show but does anyone have any info comparing premium to requesting just pit/reserves for n1? 17 yr member but apparently it doesn't matter for that night.

    Tampa always gets a deep cut song or two that WPB won't get, I am sure Dave does that on purpose. It bothers me that I miss Tampa and do WPB, ha.

    WPB is an awesome venue. Every artist I've seen there has been a blast. You'll sometimes get that evening summer breeze in there and it's very enjoyable for the show. This past year is the first time I had seats, I'm always lawn. Both are A+. Zero complaints about the lawn there.

    Having trouble deciding if I want to go the WH route for WPB.

    I have no interest in seats at WPB, just pit or lawn. I feel like if I don’t opt out of lawn through the WH drawing, I’ll definitely get lawn. So I opted out of lawn knowing full well that I probably won’t get pits and will be stuck selling uppers later on. Just hoping for a miracle that grants me a pair of pits for the first time ever lol.

    The other annoying thing is that I have to request two pits for each show whereas with lawn I could just buy a single ticket and make my friends buy their own.

    I've had no problems selling my uppers for WPB. Helps that I've typically had section 6 uppers that weren't all the way to the side.
