    Yep! No trouble with it last year, line looked super long, but moved along pretty well. Take some Dramamine beforehand if you're prone to any motion sickness

    Can someone post the seating chart of the breakdown of price tiers? I can’t seem to pull it up after I requested tickets. Thanks.

    Iím thinking of coming up from Virginia. Lots of talk about trains and boats. What if Iím lame and just want to go back to a hotel after and sleep? Is getting a hotel in NJ and just parking in the lots that hard? Iíve seen the recommendations to avoid Camden for the hotel. I will look in Mt Laurel or Cherry Hill as suggested.

    Thanks for the tips! Camden gets good sets so Iím psyched!

    It's not easy to get out of the lots after the show. I've never done it, but you might want to look into taking the riverlink and driving to/from one of those stops

    I'll probably just chance the lots unless every says they are terrible or dangerous. I can leave during the last song and hustle back. If I have to wait a bit that's not the end of the world.

    Is there an Ants tailgate I should try to join beforehand?

    Not dangerous. Just tough to get out after the show

    If i were you, i'd stay in Mount Laurel/Cherry Hill NJ (Aloft Mount Laurel is a cool hotel with a nice bar next door). I'd drive to the show rather then taking any type of public transportation. Is it tough to leave the lots after the show, sure, but it's like that after any concert/sporting event you go to. The area is safe on concert nights, there are cops all around and they are positioned at every intersection on the way out getting you back onto the highway safely. If you venture off a mile or 2 from the venue and you end up in the heart of Camden around midnight, well that's on you being an idiot. Don't overthink this, the majority of people, like myself that live in South Jersey, will drive to the venue, tailgate for a bunch of hours before the show, then head home afterwards with no issues.

    Never been in the pit either but almost all negative reviews from others. Way too cramped apparently

    some really good singles for N1 still up on TM citi presale

    Pit - I haven't been for DMB but had it for Arcade Fire in November. It was way too cramped - it's very shallow so you either ended up smashed together, or wayyyy off to the side. Still get a great view obviously but it wasn't as enjoyable as I hoped

    I didn't have VIP parking last year, just parked in one of the nearby lots & had no trouble. I don't race out of the venue to my car, though. I've never had trouble leaving Camden vs places like Wells Fargo Center in Philly. I find that much more of a hassle.

    The police kinda direct you in and around the venue so it's pretty hard to wind up somewhere you don't want to be.

    Re: *** Offical Camden 2023 Thread ***

    If anyone is looking for two uppers for N2 let me know (also listed in the ticket exchange thread). I got bamboozled on the Citi Presale and thought i missed all pairs so i grabbed Sect 203, Row N, seats 30 and 33 (thinking my wife and i could just shift over 2 seats). I was later able to find a pair of lowers after waiting for TM to refresh. Price under face plus fees.

    Sect 203
    Row N
    Seat 30 and 33 (aisle)
    $220 for the pair

    I had pit for the first time Camden N1 last yearÖgot in close to show time and our options were to hang where there was room on the extreme sides with poor views, or fight my way through the sea of humanity.

    We chose fight and were able to find a small gap that was centered and near the back of the pit where the gate is. It was an incredible first hour (I had never seen them that close!) but as time passed the more condensed it became until eventually there was mere inches of space between you and the head in front of you. At that point it was so hot and exhausting that it detracted from the experience, at which point we bailed and watched the rest of the show from the lawn.

    Would I do it again? Probably not, Iím too old and want room to get weird.

    I'd try to trade out if you can (others will be looking to do the same). Just my opinion, I'd rather sit front of the 200's centered than being Camden pit.

    I've never had trouble getting out of any of the Camden lots. There are multiple ways out back to the highway so it doesn't get too congested. Police do I good job of ushering out and protecting you from the rest of Camden.

    Just took a quick look at tix for this area for N1 - $722 each Hahaha TM can keep 'em.

    My advice is don't go for the first few rows behind the pit. Somehow the people in the pit seem higher than you. I'd start 5 rows behind.

    The tickets I got this morning on TM say “preferred seating offer”. Anyone know what that means?

    It means you probably got an aisle seat or the 2 seats after the aisle. You also paid probably $20 more per ticket. I ended up with those for PNC as it's all I could get that were decent.

    It's really great when you're heading to Camden pre-show. There are differing opinions here about what people think after the show. I didn't like it but some people do

    Yah! No issues last year either way. The line looked long getting there, but it went quickly. Coming back I didn't really have any problems, but it can get crowded. Also, Dramamine if you get motion sickness lol
