I'm guessing it's the standard max of four tix per order for the Wrigley show. Has anyone heard otherwise?

Sold out this morning? I refreshed and still see seats available. GA is sold out. I got a GA at about 10:10. They still had seats in the 100s then too. Maybe try 2 and 2 together if you don't mind sitting apart?

Yes, the scalpers join too. They get tickets however they can. I saw them running and beating most of us at the Beat the Bots presale in person a few years ago too.

There's no "fan club" for this band, just the newsletter where the code is given.

Cool Re: Chicago - Wrigley presale at a later date?

So Capital one presale started today and fan presale starts Wednesday. Does anyone know if there will be GA tickets for sale on Wednesday for fans? I would think that they would reserve some for both fans and then regular ticket sales but was wondering if they gave the Capital One people access to all GA?

No clue, but GA is no longer showing available on the site. I hope they held some back for the fan sale. They went quickly.

Does anyone know if Wrigley's GA is being split up into separate sections like the Fenway show? My ticket says FLDGA4. Not sure what I'm supposed to make of the 4? The seating chart on the site made it seem like it was all one big section.

I got two tickets today around 1pm eastern. Fairly crappy seats (406, the color was red), but that's not really the point now is it!

They had a map on the ticketing page. Looks like the entire field is GA.

Every seat (besides GA/Floor) at wrigley is crappy IMO.

Sound sucks on the lower bowl too.

That being said I still bought tickets in the lower bowl.

Welp.

Are they using a runway on the current tour?

The seats at wrigley are so far back, last year I could barely even see.

They haven't had a runway in the arenas on this tour. You'd like to think they'd have one at Wrigley, Fenway and Rogers Centre. I think it could be interesting to sit in the rooftop seats outside of Wrigley if it was cheaper than seats in the stands.

I would imagine the sound from the rooftops would be awful too, but I can't attest to that.

A runway is almost a must for a baseball field IMO.

I wish they'd do a 360 stage for arena shows too.

I went to a Muse show at the United Center with a 360 stage and there wasn't a bad seat in the house.

Can't attest to Wrigley, but I think baseball fields in general are a terrible place to hold a concert. We went to Metallica in St. Louis over the summer and we had a great time, but the sound was definitely not up to par!

That being said, I will totally be at Wrigley if I can manage to snag some tickets.
