    Default Corporate Box or Floor?

    I have beautiful tickets on the floor.
    But I might have the opportunity to get tix for a 1st level corporate box (no drinks/food included)...

    What should I do?

    (nice problem to have!)

    Give me a ticket that you don't use?

    Beat me to it. Maybe he'll have more than one extra.

    But seriously, define "beautiful" tickets. Personally, I would much rather have super close floor tickets than a box.

    it would depend on who's in the box. If you're in there with non-fans it could ruin the experience.

    Yes it does, I have a friend who I can get box seats right next to the soundboard from for Mayhem Festival. 2 years in a row I got tix from him but the douche bags that he also gave tickets to actually close to ruined it. The last time the tour came around I just bought VIP tix that were closer to the stage than the box and still came with all the perks, minus the douche bags.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    Sounds like no one else..so any of my buds willing to cough up for the $150 seats could get in (upto to the capacity, which I think is 10-15)

    Row 23 Center on Floor
    row 23 isn't really row 23 with this stage setup - you're closer to row 40-50. So assuming the people in the box are cool and the costs are similar, i'd go with the box. It's comfortable, you don't have to worry about looking over people, idiots starting scraps, etc. BUT you need to ensure there's no assclowns in there.

    Middle of floor B vs box between just under 227/228 (corner).

    Now if I could find a contact with a box on the side..then it would be a done deal....still making calls.
    Doubt I'd get non-fans in there since they'd have to cough-up cash to go to the show...no freebies!

    All depends on the venue and how they are numbering the rows. For example, this venue starts with row 1 at the stage.

    Yeah, I agree with It's Mike. Row 23 is decent, but it's not like it's rows 1-10; the box might be a better experience. And ditto on no assclowns, and no CWAD's either (that's Cafe Wha? Asian Dude for those who didn't catch it in the other thread).

    Maybe it's my age showing but I no longer like floors. Unless I am in the front 10 rows it is nothing but continuous work trying to see what is going on up on the stage. Yep...must be my age.
