Some bands I'd be happy to sit for, such as Dream Theater, but it must kill the atmosphere for many other bands if the floor is all seats.

Try buying them now with the code NOSURRENDER

I found it on reddit and it worked for me!
The show I'm going to has their own presale run through the resort. You actually have to buy tickets through the the resorts website.

Yeah I absolutely prefer the pit, I don't normally do seats. I probably won't get to see Priest again, so if I have to sit in order to see them, then I'm okay with that.

Wait until you get to the age of some of us... :lol:

Joking aside, I sometimes buy seats (e.g. Iron Maiden first nights at the O2 in 2011, 2017, 2018; I had standing tickets for the second night on all cases) but end up standing with the rest of the audience. Other times seats are the only option, like when I saw Rush in London in 2012.

I’m fine with seats, honestly. I haven’t been to a GA show in the last 10 years where people weren’t straight up idiots (pushing or shoving during ballads, kicking folks in the head while crowd surfing, spilling beer on me) and it all gets pretty old.

There’s definitely something to be said for the energy of being in a GA section (hence why I’m looking forward to the pit for Maiden next summer), but there’s also something to be said for showing up 5 mins before the band hits the stage and not having to fight for a spot.

You should really try for FTTB if that’s not what you’re doing already.

I've never been kicked in the head. At Heavy Montreal there was some guy crowd surfing in a kilt with no underwear on, though.
I’ve been kicked in the head several times and physically assaulted by a little person in the pit. That was all at a Machine Head show. At a Maiden show after I caught a drumstick from Nicko I stuck it down my pants so no one would grab it, that didn’t work. A woman in her 50s decided to stick her hands in my pants to retrieve the stick. I was a bit traumatized but I managed to keep the drumstick. There’s definitely pros and cons to GA.

This might be a cool thread idea...

You need to hang out with me in GA, nobody fucks with me or my people. Then again, I've never been to a Machine Head show.
