There should be an office for the LDs. Anyone at the Arena see any sign?

I'll go take a look around the arena soon and see if there's any signposts for LDs.

I guess pit and other great tickets will be rare in the LD for Berlin since the show has completely sold out weeks ago. But no need to worry – there are no real bad seats at Waldbühne

It was a difficult year for dippers, however I did 3 LD’s and got:

- PIT A (Gelsenkirchen)
- GA (Paris)
- Sideview Upper Level (worst seats ever in Brussels)

I am happy with my score. Up to next year!

final results for me:

Munich – Gegentribüne (stalls), not good
Liverpool – stalls (but with free food and drinks)
Amsterdam – nose bleeding seats (but made it to golden circle)
Brussels – nose bleeding seats with obstructed view (but made it to the pit)
Paris – GA (but made it to the pit)
Gelsenkirchen – nose bleeding seats (first try), golden circle (second try)
Berlin – Oberrang Block I (but made it to block K (also Oberrang but in the middle)

as someone mentioned before: not an easy year for Lucky Dippers…

I'd rather call it a kind of self-defense (against bad luck) but I also like to thank everbody who helped me (including inattentive security people)

Could you explain a little bit how you do it? We tried it in Madrid because we got the worst seats on the house but they didn't even let us into GA.

To ask is already the first mistake winking smiley The easiest is probably to have security people who don't care. In Berlin during the show I saw people slipping into the pit along the security people all the time. Before the show it was impossible but during the show easy. The two security people in front of the pit were watching the show themselves, even singing along. They had to much fun to care. On the downside I saw the pit becoming really overcrowded during the show.

I could have done it too but rather wanted to enjoy the show in peace than to get into trouble. Also the back of the pit didn't really seem like a good view.

well, very often there's a sudden window of opportunity. Just one example: In Amsterdam the entrance for pit B and those nosebleed seats was one and the same. After the ticket scan and behind the security check the ways split – one let to the bad seats, the other one to golden cricle and to the pit. We just looked at each other and then took the way to golden cricle/pit. We waved our hands in the air and the security got a glimpse of our wirstbands (which were LD not pit wirstbands, of course, but they were more or less the same color) and we were in. (Problem was that we couldn't get to the toilet anymore because you can never be sure that the same trick works again, so no beer, no drinks, no food…)

In Berlin I just walked into block K and nobody looked at my ticket (but the block I and K were 'Oberrang' (= more or less the 'worst' seats anyway). But there was no way to get to the better blocks closer to stage.

In 2018 I once used a wristband from another show which had the same color…

Sometimes someone from the security is just nice and/or thinks that there's still some space in the golden circle or in the pit

In other cases there was no chance to get on the floor/into the GA – or I didn't find any (Munich and Liverpool)

and if anything goes wrong you can still play the stupid foreigner who doesn't understand anything etc (but don't do this in your home country)

In Munich there was no way to get to the floor but the good thing was you could move rather freely in between the stands as there was barely security at all, only at the entrances. So if you had upper level seats far away it was quite easy getting lower level seats rather close to the stage.

That was really not one where you had to be smart, it was so easy and obvious that I was wondering why not everyone was doing it. Was great because my friends and me could be together that way, even though they had dipped a different categoy (but also on the stands).

(Also worked so good because there were plenty of free seats all over the stands. Otherwise you would have to stand on the stairs)

In Gelsenkirchen I had nosebleeds from Lucky Dips. Second to last row in the upper Bowl. I just looked which seats were available in Eventim and just went to one of those empty seats and enjoyed the Show.

In Berlin they didn't properly check tickets for Pit so it was in the end completely overcrowded. They even went out of Pit wristbands.

well, sometimes it's harder to get close to the pit than into it

Aaa okay thank you so much smiling smiley This is good to know, I already thought maybe they designed the Lucky Dip wristbands in the same color for a reason haha, so you might get even more lucky.

Yeah in Madrid there also was no way to get down to the floor, as every level had a different entrance and your tickets were scanned right there and you were not allowed to leave anymore.

But still awesome you made it to the front many times, I can't believe you never got PIT during all the times you went, statistically you should be all pit next summer grinning smiley

Since everybody is posting their stats, here's mine, it's a 50/50 for me this time.

Madrid - worst seats of my life lol
Munich - PIT
Amsterdam - Great seats right next to the stage
Paris - PIT
Gelsenkirchen - OK seats opposite to the stage
Berlin - PIT

Yeah in Berlin I noticed more and more people behind me as the show went on, fortunately I was almost at the catwalk. The funny thing was that the only way they checked the pit tickets was by marking them with a tiny cross on the back with a black marker, I think I could have given my ticket to someone else and he would have gotten into the Pit with them. That's probably what many did.

But that is also a good advice, I might do that the next time I get bad LDs, or try to get to the floor if possible.
