It did say the seats were directly beside the stage but we kept getting nothing for seats so I went ahead and snagged them. Would rather be close side stage as opposed to lowers on the far end of the arena (only other option that came up). Will probably check out the general onsale friday to see if we can get something closer on the lower level or possible GA under my buddy's acct and sell these for face.

Either way, cannot wait for August 2015!
I can't speak for the view as it depends on the particular stage set up, but C29 is club level and is very nice as far as seating goes. There are way fewer people on that level which makes for nice short bathroom lines and there are leather couches to sit on in all the concourse areas of that level.

It did say side view, at times partial view, etc, then these are beside the stage. With the speaker setup is what makes me nervous about the sightlines. I have no problems if it is from the side or even a little from behind, just am hoping there won't be any major obstructions throughout.

Oh well, will see what comes up on friday if we can upgrade and sell these! No matter what it will be a blast.

Thanks for the explanation of the club level!

I must be in the holiday spirit. I logged in to the public on sale today and checked what was available. After a few "no match" messages I came across a set of lower corner tickets and had the bright idea to buy them for my Ex as a Christmas present. I'm not 100% sure she deserves them, but having shared a few Foo experiences with her over the past couple decades (and spending waaay too much time trying to convince her to finally checking out the full on rock show) , I thought it would be harsh to leave her out in the cold. I'm pretty sure it will trump anything she decides to get me, but what the heck, it's the season for giving, right?

I frequently go by Xcel. I have to say, it's nice to see the big Foo Fighters photo all lit up. I guess I'm going to see a lot of that photo before August?

I guess seeing that all the time will be a blessing and a curse, seeing we have quite a wait until the show actually happens

MarciaMarciaMarcia! Can you believe it's been 10 years since we met in St. Paul? Did you bring the family?

Time flies! My husband came with me for this one and it was amazing! You ended up at the St. Louis or KC show, right? I was hoping to meet up with Fourjoy last night but we weren't able to connect.
