I will make the 1.5 hour trip and avoid hotels altogether.

The weather will be warm (as always) and ocean temps likewise. Hard Rock Stadium is North of Downtown Miami and South Beach. It resides on the Miami -Dade & Broward county borders.

The primary transportation, Tri-Rail runs from MIA all the way up to West Palm Beach. This not a coastal or ocean view transport.


In addition, Tri-Rail does not have a stadium stop. There is a station near the stadium. However, one would have to take a connecting bus (2 or 3 miles at most). Perhaps, Additional Bus trips to stadium will be provided for this event. Unknown at this point.


Therefore, I would have to conclude that there is no advantage in flying to MIA vs FLL unless the stay includes downtown Miami (ugh) as the Tri-Rail runs from airport to downtown. Rent a car, stay at the beach, away or very north from Miami, where it is much cheaper. Also note, there is plenty of parking at the stadium, which costs app. $25.


Traffic will be significant and a hassle on Friday (as par) but not Saturday, April 20.

Generally speaking it is less expensive and easier to fly into Fort Lauderdale in Fort Lauderdale airport is closer to hard rock Stadium. Like I posted in an earlier thread there is nothing to do in this area so make sure that if you are coming into town you stay either in Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, sunny Isles, or Miami. You most likely will need to rent a car to drive to the stadium as it is not in the best area

Been looking at flights from Boston - nothing cheap! DEcent flights R/T leaving Sat. morning, returning Sunday are over $600! Trying to use miles - forget it.
It gets a little better flying back on Mon. or Tues., but then you're paying for extra hotel nights. Will keep looking...

Check skiplagged.com. Flight prices change all the time. Usually cheaper prices early in the morning (I'm on East Coast). I use them for all my flights. It's great. Also consider buying 2 one way tickets. Sometimes roundtrip is more expensive.

Striking out this time around, I'm afraid.

Did they have any pit tickets for a "regular" price?

No, they were there. I had a good spot in the cue and was able to buy 1 PIT. Unfortunately my credit card was not accepted. Paying 500 bucks from overseas makes alarm bells ring at my credit card company, so they blocked it. Really pissed about this.

--------------------------------------

that was my first show 8/2/1975 with j geils and rufus w/chaka khan and atlanta rythym section.

still have ticket stub (I haven't looked in awhile but think it was $8.50) and pictures.

the stage was tent like whitish with yellow top.

pits on TM sales have been $1000 and up either thru platinum or VIP. I have seen $500 ones but once clicked on they disappear.

Miami Concert

I just scored Lucky Dip Tix for a total of $81.00 for two. Of course this is risky. However, Gen admission for Lower level possibly obstructed view were going as high as 800 dollars

Btw - I recommend getting to the stadium early and bring some cheap chairs and sit by your car and greet others. You may need some sunscreen. Outdoor BRs are always available through the scope of this particular venue. Also, others are willing to sell you a rib or burger and dog at a reasonable price - but they may give free - Florida is a crazy state but when one on one - we are nice great folks.

You bet - Steffi (iorr member) is going as well ( not with me and wife) but want to meet as well. What we can do is meet up at the stadium parking area or prior - it's only -hell December (not really ) wait a minute Rockman is in the LDU so it is December somewhere.

My strategy is slightly different. If LD tix are in the Boondocks, then I will wait until around 7:00 when the scalpers start to sweat and flash two 100 dollar bills and say -"all I have". If they say yes - they will have to have the tix scanned at entry point before transaction is concluded.
