you should consider Delray Beach. It's about a 30 min ride to the venue but tons of stuff to do if you are into a busy nightlife scene. I think there's an ocean front Marriott there

    Just bought a reserved pair for both nights at WPB. Never been. Couple of questions...

    1. How is view from back end of reserved section and is it covered? Looks like it via pics but canít tell for sure. Iíve gone to Fiddlers in Denver several times so if anyone can compare the back end reserved there to WPB Iíd really appreciate it.

    2. Anyone know if the venue is walkable from Singer Island?

    Canít wait!

    1. it's not great. the problem is if you're too far back you're actually not "covered" bc the sun will shine on the back rows - it will be awful.

    2. no. not even close. The venue isn't walkable period unless you live across the street. Singer Island is like 20 miles away.

    Does anyone have any insight into the seating in WPB? I bought section 7, Row J off Ticketmaster which appeared as the front row of the section. Now it looks like there are “box seats” in front which is ok but in some pictures there looks like there are these big, leather seats in between section 7 and the box seats. Anyone know the layout/ will these obstruct our view? Thanks! Also staying at Hilton singer island - hope to see some of you there!

    I ended up with Section 2 Row N for night 1 and section 3 Row E for night 2. Night 2 says "sight/hearing" on them so I assume all the way to the side but whatever....3rd row behind pit.

    Pretty sure the sight/hearing means theyíre for sight and hearing impaired fans. Meaning theyíre not way off to the side.

    Thanks!

    I have never even had lowers in all the years before at WPB despite always being charged the higher reserved price.

    Thank you for this sunshine and rainbows report

    Guess we will be using Uber or renting a car... I wanted reserved so I donít have to get there too early, so hopefully we wonít battle the sun too long before it goes down. I just canít do lawn anymore and supply online was limited, so I took what I could get. I know Iíd get better seats/better deal if I wait until closer to showtime, but man I hate doing that dance. Iíve wound up with some great seats at Fiddlers by waiting until about an hour before the show, but I hate the stress and back and forth of it all. We are back left reserved N1 and center stage back reserved N2 and I think I can live with that, especially if acoustics are good.

    Thank you for the reply/info.

    As Bruce said, those are excellent. Those first three rows would almost be pit in other venues. And, even if you're on the outside of the row the only issue is the angle cuts off some view of the horns depending how far back they setup on stage.

    For 3 or 4 years in a row I hit those outer edge lowers on ticket drops months after the initial on sale. I love having the outer aisle for room to move around and make bathroom and beer runs. Met ExistenceNow and his friends in those seats and had a great time.

    First timer here, been to all the major venues, I figured I'd see what WPB was all about. What can I expect?

    Got show tickets and a villa. Just need flight tickets. How hard is it to grab an Uber to and from the show?

    yes, there are definitely box seats in front of row J in Sec 7. The big leather seats you alluded to are some sort of premium seats the venue now is trying to push to prospective season tix holders who don't want to shell out big $ for Sec 1-3. In any event, Row J in Sec 7 is a nice seat. Neither the box seats nor the big leather ones will obstruct your view. And if history is any indication, Friday's show usually has some very good TM drops in Sec 1-3, if you are willing to try and upgrade last min (Sat is usually not this way but it's always worth checking)
