    Default seating in front of the stage

    is it me or does it seem like the 1st row is pushed back further than usual?

    It does, looks like the front row is at least 15 feet from the front of the stage. Seems further than last tour.

    The big question (I also posted somewhere else). There is also some space between the front row and the fence.

    Do the front row folks get to go up to the fence while the 2nd row folks stay a good 6-7 feet back? This would be ideal for my son and I (Front row...)
    Right here I say....

    My wife and I were in the front row last night Ed's side.

    You definitely can walk up to the fence-although security guards were asking us to go back to our seats. Second row stayed in their seats. Security stack piled guards mid show to keep us off. They were also getting pissed about all the beach ballons getting punched up front and on stage. It is a good 10-15 feet from first row to the stage.

    Why would they do that shit? So I spent $900 per ticket so they can have some space, n make picture taking a bit harder. I was front row for RUSH N Def Leppard, they didn't pull this bullshit.

    Maybe it was just that way at MSG - maybe every venue is different with regulations, etc...?

    Might just be MSG. The security guard in front of us was a kid and he had an attitude. He kept telling me to go back to my seat. Also was popping the beach balloons as they made there way up front. You can see Ed kick one off the stage in some of the video posted.

    I would not get too wrapped up in not getting up to the fence. The seats are insane.

    More reason NOT to buy the VIP packages. $900 for a front row seat 10-15 feet from the stage? Rrrrrrrrrip offff.

    In 2004 I could have easily pulled out Ed's guitar cord when he walked over to us in the front row.

    Can somebody explain to me what is meant by the security guards telling people to get back to their seats? Isn't your seat right along the fence?

    Again, I remember the security being so cool in 2004. He basically sat down the whole time while we were freaking out in the front row. And we were literally an arms reach, if that, from touching a stage that was chest height.
