Well I'm coming down from Vancouver and will be screaming at the top of my lungs, so that may add to the ambience.

Anyone with suggestions on the best mode of travel from Vancouver? Train, Bus, Car and where to stay that is relatively close to stadium?

Driving is always best.. have done them all, would not necessarily drive to the stadium though.
There is a new(ish) light rail system that takes you very close to the stadium.
Budget and what you want to do is always a consideration, but I would recommend staying near a light rail stop (University District, Capitol Hill, South Seattle) if not wanting to stay right downtown.

I wrote this before but worth saying again. Good option for hotel is near the airport. There are a lot of choices more reasonably priced than downtown & there is a light rail stop on highway 99 there that will take you right to the stadium for very little money. Some friends did that at labor day & were very happy with the choice.

thanks everyone, some good advice and sound choices! Merry Christmas!

no news locally. the show has sold very well here. i checked a few weeks ago & the only tickets available were "platinum" packages & resale. maybe 1 little section had standard price tickets. i think the stratagy of having 1 show for the seattle/vancouver/portland corridor (& the eastern outlands of those cities) has worked very well for the band. when the stones played century link on ABB there were a lot of empty seats but they had done or were going to do several shows in the area.

good news in some respects; from a lucky dip perspective, perhaps not quite so lucky!

I tend to think the Lucky Dips are perhaps "luckier" when the stadium sells well. Meaning the less cheap seats to fill, the less chance of getting one there.

Of the two shows I bought Lucky Dips for in the UK, I pulled pit-B for Manchester which was one of the fullest stadiums of that leg (saw people turned away for tix at box office).. Led me to believe that perhaps the more expensive tix were then the ones they had more of left to distribute..

Made that trip a few times for shows cool smiley
If you're leaving from the Seattle area.. you can take two distinctly different road trips, getting there and back, with there only being about 45 minutes driving time difference.

One way takes you SE through Washington, Oregon, Utah, Wyoming, then Colorado.
Coming back you can drive NW through Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, then Washington.
Both really great scenic drives with very cool stopping points.

I've gone to Pyramid Alehouse a couple of times and found it to be pretty decent for both food and drinks. If the weather's nice, the patio may be open with bbq and brews right there on demand.

I've been to Seattle a couple times recently and loved it. It is gorgeous, a great place to just walk around and take in the mundane... go out for coffee, lunch, a beer, etc. If you like good beer, I thought the beer at Pyramid Alehouse was really good. The food was good. The garlic fries were to die for. Pyramid Alehouse is right next to Safco Field, the baseball stadium. It would be packed if the show was at the baseball stadium, but I believe the Stones are playing the football stadium, which is right next door to the baseball stadium. It might work in your favor that the show is at the football stadium, putting Pyramid Alehouse a little further from the Stones show and maybe not as packed. It is still not far at all and totally walkable.

Just announced: Tedeschi Trucks Band at The Paramount Theatre, Seattle May 23 & 24.

Tickets onsale starting Jan 15

Think I'll stick around another night. They're well worth it. A sit-in with The Stones the night before might be too much to hope for, but, damn, it would be sweet!

How about TTB opening for the Stones? They have an open date on 5/22. I saw Susan open for the Stones in Vegas once & she was fantastic. Have seen TTB, too & they were mostly great. To be honest, I prefer Susan's material to Derek's. He's a great guitar player though.

The aforementioned Pyramid Brewery might be good. They have a large outdoor area, so wouldn't be shutouts. I haven't hung out in Pioneer Square in ages but there are plenty of bars there. I'll think on it.

As mentioned earlier in the thread Lisa Fischer will be playing four nights at Jazz Alley in Seattle starting the night after the concert (May 23).

Great venue, and I would not be surprised if there was a special guest or three in attendance. Either way, would be a fun after-party and having seen her a few times, it's always a great show.

They give preferential (and early) seating to those choosing a dinner option and another IORRian (Dave G) and I are planning on attending the Thursday show.

Anyone else interested drop me an email (not hidden) and we can coordinate..

Elysian Fields is right next to the north entrance to the stadium if the weather's dodgy. Good beer, liquor, and food.

Hope we get a decent weather day, and that I can find a decent ticket.

Also prior to that on May 18th SOLO - Fox Theater, Spokane - just a hop, skip, and a jump away ( apprx. a few hundred miles east ha).

Wow, this is getting crazy...Neil Young & POTR at the Paramount May 20 & 21, The Stones on the 22nd, and Tedeschi-Trucks the 23rd & 24th.

If you got LD's the Stones are the cheapest show by far.

Neil has a night off the 22nd, so does TT. Could any sort of sit-in actually happen?

If Neil plays with the Stones, they could mash-up 'Brown Sugar Mountain'.
