Well I won't be going to see DM, last time I walked out.

I fell the same way. I started as 1084 and then ended up in the 800s. Managed to get decent seats on the floor but didn't expect to be paying these kinds of prices. I would have rather taken my chances with the resellers. Never thought I would say that...  it better be one hell of a show.

That's the opposite of what happened to me.

Were you in group one or two, and what section of the floor did you get? Also, one night or both?

When I was watching more the backdrop graphics than the singer. In a 10,000 seat venue, the crowd was just not into it. Only the rabid fans close to the stage.

This has happened on the last two tours and I vowed not to sit through that again. I paid $95 a ticket

everyone else, enjoy yourself

Stadium tours are expected of them, which is a shame for the reasons you gave.

Well they have been doing arena gigs for some time in the US. What has happened is that DM has evolved into a rock act, but the bulk of the fans are older fans that want to hear Violator and prior material and so it has become a happy, wait, happy, wait, wait, wait, wait, happy, wait scenario.

I find much of their stuff still accessible. I wouldn't be headed to concessions or bathrooms if I could avoid it.

Still, it's been a while since I've been to an arena gig. I'm unsure I'll get enough enjoyment from my seat.

I was in Group 2. Didn't realize they were doing all those packages. Opted for Gold and got section B row 12.  4 tix - on the 9th.

Really nice of you.

I only grabbed tix for 9/11, and section 1 (barely on floor).

It's not lost on me as a New Yorker to see a band on 9/11 do a track called "Where's The Revolution". It will be an interesting night.

By the way, if anyone wants tickets for NYC on September 9th, let me know.  Turns out a friend of mine and I both bought tickets without consulting each other and figured we would go together.  Her seats are section 226 row 5.  She has 4 tickets she bought with the silver package for $300 a piece.

I wonder what the exclusive item will be with those packages.
