    Default Just won tickets and have a question

    Does anyone know how good seats are when you win tickets through a radio station? Just won tickets for the Key Arena show in Seattle on KISW.

    Tickets go on sale tomorrow and want to make sure I try and get good seats if all I can expect from the radio station are nosebleeds.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    I've gotten radio station comp tickets a bunch. In this case the radio station (or family of stations) has the same seats for any concert that comes through the venue. (For instance, I had tickets to several shows at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, and it was in the same row, section every time). Bottom line is, these seats are usually not the Premium or best seats in the house. They don't usually suck, either.

    My advice if you really want top notch seats is to buy a pair then sell off whichever seats are less favorable.

    I won tickets in 1995 to see Van Halen in Montreal. The tickets that the Radio station had were lower bowl, in the corner(not bad, but not great). I gave my seats away, as I acquired front row through a friend who worked for ticketmaster/admission. So if you're looking to get really close, don't bank on those tickets.

    There are usually ticket giveaways for a concert and then a grand prize giveaway for the concert. The giveaways are usually half decent. Not bad, not great.
    Right here I say....

    Won tickets to The Who through a Radio Station, seats weren't the best - opposite end of the stage 2 levels up. Whatever, still got to go - for free.

    Thanks for the feedback. I know the other rock radio station is having a contest to get in the first few rows so I hope this station is doing the same just not saying. They said that I would be contacted when they have the tickets so for now I guess I should just try and get seats tomorrow and then sell off the ones I don't want. Either way I'm stoked!

    I won tickets for the '04 VH tour in Grand Rapids, MI from one of the local radio stations and they were 5th row on Mikey's side! The seats were awesome, but unlike the seats you won, drummr, I won mine THE DAY of the show, about an hour before the doors opened to the arena. Long story short, my lone experience winning tickets from a radio station was very good.

    I emailed the promotions director and he told me that they are at the mercy of the promoter and I will probably hear from them in about two weeks. He said they usually get some good seats and some bad seats and that he would do what he could to hook me up with some good seats as I stated how big of a Van Halen fan I am. He did say that there is a possibility that they may just get the $48 seats. Oh well, I guess I'll just keep with the plan of trying to get good tickets in the morning.
