    Default Official Chicago 2008 Thread

    I searched and didn't see a thread for this show. In 52 minutes we'll be 10 days away boys and girls. Let's start with this, where are you guys sitting. My wife and I are heading up from St. Louis on Friday morning, sitting in Sec. 110. We're at a hotel within walking distance from Allstate Arena. If anybody is doing that too, we should have a drink or 12 before the show.

    I am thinking about flying up from Dallas for this show. Probably try to catch the Cubs game that day too. What is the closest hotel to the arena?

    Default Seats n Question

    Hey all...my buddy and I are pumped as hell for the show on the 30th. We were able to score floor seats - Section 3, Row 12! Can't wait to see Eddie and the boys from that close! My question is this - does anyone know how the seat numbers in that section go at Allstate? Is seat 1 closest to the ramp? Or is it more toward the end? From everything I've searched...I can't really get a clear answer! I don't really care either way...just curious. We have pretty low numbered seats...I believe less than 10.

    We had 4 star VIP in Milwaukee and were dead center right on the ramp. A few days after the show when our heads were finally clear and we had a little perspective, I asked my wife what she thought of the show. She said she was so drunk that she didn't remember it that well. I explained that I was stressed out during the show because we spent so much money on the VIP seats that I was determined to get there on time, not miss a note and have a good time. She half jokingly said "I wish we could do over again". I knew the tour was almost over and that most of the rest of the shows were in the east so there was no way we could go. But on a whim I checked Ticketbastard and saw that they had a show on a Friday coming up in Chicago. I figured there would be no way we could get decent seats this late but I checked and found seats in the 13th row on the floor. I showed my wife and she said "Let's do it."

    We are driving down from Madison and staying at a hotel within walking distance. Our seats are a pretty high number so I am guessing we are near the outside aisle. That's okay with us. It makes it easy to get in and out if necessary.

    We're staying at the Best Western. I don't know if it's the closest, but they told me it's for sure within walking distance.

    Giordano's; now we have an agenda. I'll make sure we hit that place, you should make the trip. Only a 5 hour drive my friend. 2nd to last show of tour, pretty big deal.

    Hi,
    Let me introduce myself:
    I live so far away in São Paulo, Brasil.
    When I was 13, Van Halen came to Brasil and I didn't went to the show, 'cause I was too young to go alone in a Concert here(If you never came to a concert in Brasil, you can't imagine how wild this can be). They never came again.........................
    I'm waiting only 25 years to see the best band of the world, to see a living legend, like Ed playing alive.
    I'm married to a guy that loves VH and went to the show here and he always told me with lots of details what I missed. VH is the soundtrack of this relationship.
    And then happened something impossible.............David Lee Roth is back!!!!!!!!!!!
    To celebrate everything, we're taking a plane to Chicago next week to go to the May 30 show at Allstate arena, sec 3 floor.
    We are at a hotel close to the arena, maybe two blocks.
    It's a dream that is coming true.

    Call the arena and ask. If you are too lazy to do this, you don't deserve to know.

    But most arenas will tell you this info if you all the box office.

    Way cool that you're coming all this way for the show. I have a VHS boot from Brasil - 1983 by the way. Maybe we'll see you around the hotel. Sounds like yours is right by ours.

    I'm getting so jacked for Chicago this Friday. I keep reading the reviews from all the recent shows and it looks like they just keep getting better and better. It's amazing watching them finish this tour stronger than when they started. Polar opposite of the way 2004 went down. 5 days my friends.
