Default Toronto question...

So we're thinking of driving to Toronto after the Detroit show to catch the Friday night TCV show too. Can someone tell me what the seating/GA situation is there and how many the place holds? I couldn't find it on their website. Thanks!!

I think the venue holds about 3200-3500 and its all GA...probably the worst venue in Toronto to be honest. Its long and unless you're in the very front, can't see shit.
Its the only thing bumming me out about friday

Are you tall? If you're under 6ft good luck unless you like being squished like a sardine up at the front. I was just there for Motorhead and I couldn't see a fucking THING...it was a sold out show and packed to capacity..i tried to move closer to see and almost had a panic attack from being suffocated by stinky men pouring their beer on me lol...I somehow luckily got access to watch from the balcony up top which is the ONLY good place to see from, and i could see the poor people down below getting CRUSHED.

Its definitely not somewhere I'd recommend people make an effort to drive up to if they don't already have a ticket, seeing as its sold out...If you aren't comparing it to anything yeah, its not that bad...but is it better than the Kool Haus? Guverment? Opera House? Lee's Palace? Massey Hall? Sony Centre? Mod Club? Hell even Arrow Hall I'd rather go to than the Sound Academy...

Since we would be driving there and would also have to figure out tickets, I am guessing we wouldn't be able to get there too early to wait in line, which would mean we'd be stuck somewhere in the middle to back of the venue. I'm 5'2", so sounds like this would not be a fantastic experience. Thanks for the info, though!!

If you really want to see them again, by all means come down...but I'd hate for you to go through all the trouble!! I'm just being honest!

I do, but I'm honestly hoping for some west coast action in the spring and maybe a return visit to Chicago. I think I'm just spoiled from having been on the rail for their first show here and then (hopefully!!) close again for Detroit. Logistically, I don't think we'd be able to get that close in Toronto simply because of the travel time, etc. which would just bum me out. So, unless I get some free tickets and a free place to stay in Toronto (ha!) I will probably not go.

If you are going, I hope you have a fantastic time!!!

Arrow Hall was a fun venue IMO. I loved that show.

Anyways, I look forward to seeing nothing tomorrow.

btw, if anyone wants to say hi, I'll be the blonde haired dude, with black hoodie, jeans, black vans and glasses. (yup, I'll look like pretty much 90% of the people there.)

SO HYPED FOR TODAY!

Leaving here at 3pm so hopefully my friends and I will get to the venue on time.

And don't scoff Fooze Fighter, Jennyroo picked me out of the crowd at one gig when I left a description of what I was wearing. I'm Asian though so that may have made it easier.

Hope everyone has a great time at the gig tonight.

If you get any pictures with any of the band members don't even post them, I'd be too jealous.

I didnt want to mention what gig it was at because I wasnt sure if it was Opera House or Arrow Hall.

Anyways, black shirt, grey cardigan/hoody jeans and velcro shoes to those who are there. I am always a little weirded out meeting people from postboards though.

Hopefully my ride is on time.

So I just got back - didn't see any of you cats sadly. Although the place was packed. I agree with Jenny, that venue was total s***. however, the Vultures were pretty much the single best live experience I've ever had. forget about the fact that the acoustics suck there, these guys brought it WITH every song. just unbelievable. Kudos to Grohl and Co.
