The night before Imagine Dragons is playing at the hockey arena, who knows if that will still happen as it looks like they haven't sold more than 2,000 tickets.

Priory is nice, neighborhood is not so much.

Hyde Park is very nice for nice dinner. Jerome Bettis's Bus 36 is next to Heinz Field and is decent for burgers and sandwiches, but will be crowded. If you plan to eat after the show, think about Pittsburgh's specialty, Primanti Brothers, especially those staying on the South Side.

The Priory is nice but the neighborhood is a dicey walk- I used to live in this neighborhood. downtown is better.

If you are planning on taking the T it is very safe but times can be a it off. give yourself extra time. I will probably go down this way from Mt.Lebanon.

Made a reservation at Pittsburgh City Center. More $$$ but at least I feel safer.

The Hotel I suggested on page one is a block away from the underground transportation system known as the "T. I believe that one of the stops it makes is on the North Shore and that transit stop is about 50 yards from the stadium. Probably a $3.00 ride. You would need to see if the "T" goes from the Mt. Lebanon Station to North Shore. Probably a 30 minute trip.

The T does run from Mt.Lebanon directly to the North Shore. Heinz Field is the last stop on the line.

Considering that the major highways will be under construction and tunnels probably closed during the weekend, public transportation is probably the best way to go.

Ginger Baker formally of The Cream, will be in Pittsburgh the same night for a 9pm show at a venue about a half mile from the Stadium. In case you lose your Stones tickets, there is now a Plan B.

Does anyone know the prices by section? Also, will they have the "lottery" tickets again?

Great question, Phillies 1222. Any info on ticket sales appreciated.

Plus if coming from out of town don't forget to download the Pgh Uber app. Safe, cheap way to get around and they are reliable.

Booked our hotel room at the Renaissance three wks ago because everything else closer was already full. Pricey, but might be where the Stones are staying, Was in 2005.

Anyone know the Pittsburgh VIP Package prices?

I want a ticket very close to the stage. Wondering if I should bite the bullet and get a VIP Package, or wait for the general sale?

my 2 cents....I'd play it safe - see what you can get in the pre-sale or gen public sale instead of waiting.

I'm usually not picky about my seats. As long as I'm in the building then I'm happy.

The Pittsburgh concert is going to be a special one for me. So I want nice seats. Also the peace of mind knowing I have tickets, etc.

Wow! These seats are expensive. Sorry if mentioned earlier on this thread or another, but all lower level seats in the back are nearly $190 with all of the fees. In Buffalo, all lower level seats were in the range of $400, I guess because of the proximity of Toronto fans.

Not surprised though. With these markets being much smaller than two years ago, in a stadium instead of an arena and pretty close to the same price, I would be surprised if the entire stadium sold out WITHOUT a price reduction for some seats at some point.

Did anyone pay nearly $400 for a seat?

Custom 55, best seats I've seen here are yours at this show. Hope you didn't get burned for nearly 4 bills. I have lower bowl seats and club level seats closer to the back and they were $190 with the Ticketbastard bribe

Four together in section 134, 25 rows up. Basically the 50 yard line. It took a few whacks but there they were!

I paid 400 each for columbus in section 25aa as they were the closest section to the stage off the floor by 8 rows. I was very hesitent to pull the trigger at that price as I think I can get better, cheaper as this goes on, but I'm going to buffalo, pitt and orlando as well, so I'll indeed see if I can get better cheaper. Crazy that teh second section in milwaukee is only 275 when compared to the stadiums

Back field 7, pretty slim pre-sale selection as always waited a bit and found these but I'm assuming they'll be some generous sized screens.
