The lowers are on the sides also. The club level yes itís good for games. For concerts it is not bad and is not high at all. Also those are smaller sections, nicer concourse, shorter bathroom lines, probably your own merch stands. While it isnít the ideal situation thatís what happens when you request warehouse tickets. Be happy you didnít get stuck in the uppers.

    My problem are the price tiers, because the location of those club seats are not only worse for sight lines, but sound as well. Iím pretty disappointed Iím paying the absolute highest price for what I would deem the second worst seating option other than the 300 level just above it.

    Youíre right though. Gamble with the Warehouse, youíre playing with fire. Iíll see what the public on sale looks like.

    I completely get your complaint about the price tiers. To me itís a similar practice for the summer shows when the lower price tier got extended to almost 3/4 of the pavilions on the summer tour a few years back. They are just doing the same with indoor arenas.

    At the end of the day, the band is about making money as most of us are as well. If they can get the money they will. Look at the posters, now every show has a foil and the price has increased slightly on the regular ones. It wouldnít surprise me if a poster costs $70 next year. If you are able to upgrade during the regular on sale, you should have no problem moving yours opposed to someone having to pretty much eat uppers

    Regular posters at the Gorge were $70 PLUS tax this year. We got lower reserved and are very happy with getting those.

    200 Level is a very small section called the Lexus Club, mostly skyboxes with maybe a dozen rows of seats beneath the boxes which is where these seats are. 200 level is far and away my favorite seats for NBA or NHL. Bathroom and vendor lines are incredibly small and you likely will have your own waitress at your seat. You are insane to think this is the second worst seating option. Quite frankly I am surprised that the warehouse had access to this level at all.

    I'll happily trade you my upper Reserves and pay the difference in price for these Club Seats. They are better than most 100s.

    I agree with both of these takes! The short bathroom lines alone make it worth it!

    Usually all of these seats are taken by corporate accounts. If you want to find a negative it might be that you’ll possibly have some dude in a suit next to you lol. A bad seat, it is not. Like literally if I could have picked a pair of seats it would be front row of 200 level in the middle. Obvs not sure of row yet, but there aren’t many rows to begin with, and these are closer to VIP than bleachers if that is what people are thinking. Based on the map, far superior to many 100 level seats not even factoring in the drink/bathroom situation.

    I've been in the 200 level for countless events, including hockey games, basketball games and concerts. For concerts, they aren't bad depending on your section and your preferences for seats. Some of the seats feel really far away but do have a cool views. It definitely won't be as lively up there as it would be on the floor but the bathrooms are easier to get to.

    Use this site to see some examples. Keep in mind DMB uses a smaller stage than some of these:

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

    Anyone have any luck with the Citi Presale? The amount of Platinums out there already is crazy. I was able to get Floor Reserved through Warehouse and another friend was able to get the Front GA but I'm going to try for some more on Friday for friends. I'm worried there isn't going to be much there, though.

    Seat confirms up- SEC 4 Row 13, for me. Solid. Looks to be lined up directly with the front of the soundboard. I was in that same section for Tool in March and that was great.

    Gonna go in with zero expectations and have a fun Tuesday night. Had to miss alpine, so I’m glad I get a chance to see them close to home.

    For anyone traveling, the west loop area is the best restaurant section in Chicago- so try to make an early reservation in the area.

    Will try to grab two PITs tomorrow, but possibly ISO. Not too worried though, don’t think it will be a tough ticket.

    That public on sale was a joke as expected. Nothing but platinums, resale, and upper deck by the time I actually got through.

    Yes, last week but wasn't on the floor. Did sit on the floor in 2019 for Tool and you have to go to the main concourse for drinks

    So to confirm, if you had your choice. Floor is better than the side? Example, which would you choose. Front part of section 5, or first couple rows of 102?

    I think it depends - I'd take front part of section 5 in that scenario - but if it was back section of 4 or 6, I'd take 102 probably.
