"That list of people at concerts"
1. Aggressive Drunks (the worst)
2. People pushing in.
3. Ceaseless Selfie Takers
4. Loud tone deaf singers along.
5. I didn’t see him, but at Hyde Park in 2013, someone on here said there was a bloke in the crowd playing his harmonica along to every song before security threw him out.
6. At the Who in Hyde Park in 2015, some chap in front of us tried to video a whole song with a 10” iPad complete with cover hanging down, blocking the view of 40+ people until my friend gently dealt with him.
7. People holding up signs, flags and banners, blocking the view of others.
8. Scream talkers constant nonstop blather
9. Monster size guy with tiny girlfriend on his shoulders
10. Shirtless dude asking everyone if they got a pipe or papers.
11. Bros (aka Frat bros, Frat boys) usually come in packs of four, pushing each other fighting around, constant high fives, drunk, blahing to every one around.
12. Crazy wide area spin dancing person with no awareness that anyone else is there as they widen their dance area bumping into people.
13. f&f (friends and family) of the band or promoter - see above for behavior
14. Sick person vomitting possibly starting the vomit train chain reaction
15. a very rude gentleman who is at least 6'5" tall standing on his chair directly in front of a very pleasant fellow who is only 5'6" tall.
16. the person behind me who can't understand that people want to stand up and dance, and spends the whole show hissing Sit DOWN! - until they want to stand up, of course.
17. People who throw things at concerts, be thar food, drink (original or “reprocessed”)
18. People who stink... eeeewwwww dat smell... cant ya smell that smell? Make sure you wear deodorant.

Does anyone have any idea about Lucky Dips for Denver?
Looking at the ticket map there seems to be plenty of seats left but I've not seen any Lucky Dips on offer. I missed the original sale so I'm hoping for a miracle

My Lucky Dip experience (Foxboro):

We pleaded with the woman at the window to give us good seats, she said don't worry you will have good seats. We got section 113, which is the first section lower bowl. We were excited until we got to ours seats and we had a view of the side stage, could not actually see the band. So my friend went to customer service window inside the stadium and the woman said just move around, no problem, pick any seat you want, in that section there are 150 open seats. We decided to look for a seat in the next section over. There was hardly any security, we sat at a row that was empty, had great isle seats and had perfect view of stage and screens. Awesome.

Congrats! smileys with beer and thanks for the review. I think that describes the perfect LD experience. Seriously. Getting into the show at 1994 prices and winding in up seats with a fine view sounds great. On the zipper tour LDs 4 times we came up nose bleeds... 4 times we self upgraded... 4 times I was very happy.

This show is built for a stadium. It looks good and sounds good at a distance.

Is the LD transfer thing truly dependent on who you speak with at TM? Myself and someone else have both been told exactly opposite stories by TM via their chat:

"Yes you can assign an alternate name to your LDs"
and
"No you cannot"

I think it does depend on who you get there, at least it did for me. The first time I called I was told by the agent that I could only transfer to a family member. But then I was able to do it in a live chat on my laptop.
When you call, just don't mention "transfer", they'll tell you that is not possible. Tell them you can't attend the event so you want to give the tickets to a friend. Also, make sure you ask for the "advanced will call option" at the beginning, so they know to add the other person's name under yours.
When I got to the will call window in DC, I had a hard copy of the other person's CC (last four digits only), plus a copy of the receipt for his tickets. I was nervous about it, but it wasn't a problem at all.

Thx!! They didn't ask for ID?
yeah, I mentioned transfer on the chat, my mistake. And I cannot call their call center (they said something about my phone # being Alaskan prefix, but calling from Central time zone.. Doesn't make sense but I have not been able to get through on phone for almost two months now despite them "sending it up the chain to address this issue!" lol)

Yes, the person buying them from you will need their ID.
I told them I had LD tickets and needed the advanced will call option as an unforeseen family matter had come up and I now could not attend, so I wanted to give the tickets to a friend.
Try the live chat, you might have better luck. If it's for the New Orleans show, you will might have a tougher time as it was added as a separate show after the reschedule. Last resort, you could see if you can return them. If so, then call back later when you can coordinate a time with the person you are giving them to so that they can be online to grab them when they are released.
Good luck!

Check out the NOLA thread. Very bad weather, and concert most likely to be cancelled/postponed.

In Canada we showed up at a little tent called "box office" and when they discovered we had Lucky Dip ($50), they fanned out pairs of tickets like a deck of cards for a magic trick and said "pick a pair." Instead of general admission we got in the Diamond seats, face value $549. Much better than being stuck standing on the field. Great show too. Terrible security, food and bathroom lines though.

I could basically pick wherever I wanted. The first time I did "Pick any card" from the fanned out tickets. When I got to my seats I realized the pair we had were seperate seat numbers in the diamond seating. I went back to that tent and asked if she could get me closer to the stage and seats together. We ended up Ronnie's side with the closest seats possible to the stage. Face on these were $849/per.

Only NOLA so far. I’d be surprised if there are any others. People have very occasionally been grabbing Lucky Dips that have been put back into the system after the original buyer sought a refund. But it’s very rare.

This maybe mentioned years ago, but take a look at the color and the number of bands on other peoples wrists. My friend did and we found out we were in the wrong section for dip tickets.
