Default Buffalo ~ Sept 25th, 2011

Hi there,

First time post.

My wife and I are plan on making the trip down from Toronto to see the Foo's in Buffalo for our 7th Wedding Anniversary. We just recently saw the Foo's in Toronto on August 9th, and have to see them again.

We don't have tickets, and there doesn't appear to be and lower bowl good seats available on ticketmaster, etc. We plan on getting "scalpers" the night of the concert. I know in Toronto "scaplers" are everywhere, and I've had no problems buying from them in the past, but never across the boarder. "Scalpers" are very common in the Toronto scene, but what's it like in Buffalo.

Any advice? Comments? Anybody know where we can get lower bowl seats in sections 105, 106 or 116, 117.

Thanks in advance.

-Paul

Paul,

there will definitely be some scalpers around the F'N Center, but seeing as this is the first time the Foos have played Buffalo, I would expect tix will be pricey and somewhat hard to come by

Good Luck

I ordered my tickets when they went on presale and got them two weeks after I ordered them so you might want to check on that probably by Wednesday so you have some time to find your tickets

Thanks again!

Pearl Street Grill, not far from the arena maybe a little expensive but everything is around there. Also The Cobblestone. Right next to the arena and just as good. I go to a lot of Sabres games lol

pearl street is a great place, close to the F'N Center. Beer brewed right on site. Good grub too.

Up the road a bit is the Anchor Bar where Chicken wings were first "invented"

Cobblestone is good as is the Swami House (both by the Center)

I live in Da Buff so any questions before the show fire away (sorry I cannot put anyone up for the night) For those visiting (that would include the Foo Fighters seeing it is their first time here) I hope you enjoy our fair city

tickets dot com opened up more seats, so I was able to pick up some GA floors. Not big on standing for a few hours, but I'll see if I can trade up to some seats. I just checked and the opened up Floor seats are no longer available. Lucky to get them when I did, as the prices on stubhub for Floors are double the cost from the box office.

Looking forward to our 2nd Foo's show!!!
