    Default Van Halen in Manchester, NH -- FYI: small gig, cheap tickets (!!) close to Boston

    Manchester, NH is 45 min. north of Boston.

    Van Halen's gig in Manchester, NH on 3.13 will be the smallest gig of the 2012 tour thus far, (not counting the Cafe Wha? and Henson Studios gigs.)

    Capacity for Manchester's Verizon Center is between 9,000-10,000 for in-the-round concerts... Less, I'd imagine, for Van Halen.

    Whereas tickets for VH's other small gig at Mohegan Sun started at around $100.00, tickets for Manchester start at $40.

    Today, I was surprised to learn that there were still a few hundred seats left for Manchester -- so I bought a few and am road-tripping up there with friends.

    ...To anyone who can't make it to the sold-out Boston Garden, I suggest checking out Manchester! And hope to see you there!!!

    I think actually the Sovereign Center in PA will have an even smaller show, 6000-9000 seats, all depending. I find it interesting how some of these venues are not all that large. If NH was a closer drive I'd be doing that. I think I am going to try to go to the AC show.

    Damn! I wish they'd play Thompson Bowling Arena here in Knoxville, TN. Holds 20,000 and the Classic Rock station had been pushing the new album like crazy.

    Praying for a second leg!

    Yep, the Sovereign Center in Reading is 15 minutes from my house, 12 minutes if I make all of the lights. Holds about 7,000 from what I have read. There really isn't a bad seat in the house as long as you're not behind the stage.

    Yeah, I think Mohegan holds 8250 seats for an end stage concert like Van Halen. They say max capacity is 10,000 seats but that rarely ever gets filled. Interesting how they are choosing to play in the smaller venues.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    I will be there as Manchester is 30 min away for me. I should be sort of easy to spot as I am going with my long time friend that sings in my VH tribute and looks just like Sammy. Of coarse we like all VH it's just that he grew his hair out and it looks just like Sammy's.

    We actually saw Sammy in Gilford NH a few years back and we had the onstage tickets. Sammy flipped when he saw my friend and gave him a drink. Mike even came out and did a shot of JD with him. We love all VH though so iy is all good and we won't be standing around with our arms folded. Lol. I am really looking forward to this one. We were at the show in Manchester they did in 07 and Eddie had just gotten back to some sobriety and played good. Looks like he is really burning now though...

    Wow, has anyone noticed the huge amount of tix still unsold on Ticketmaster?

    http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/01...1&minorcatid=1

    Keep clicking the zoom button until it shows the seats that are unsold.

    It looks like a lot of seats priced in the mid-range are left!! (If one of those seats is better than mine, you can bet I'm casually slipping into it, lol.)

    The other day when I was clicking on the sections available, those "middle seats" were this color white-blue, and you couldn't click on them. I thought they were maybe corporate seats..?

    Maybe they just became available?

    I hope they sell!! It'd be great to see America's greatest rock n' roll band with a packed house!!

    I'll be going to this show. Heading to the Boston show as well.

    Looks like it could be a nice warm day on Tuesday which means the outdoor deck at Murphy's(bar right across the street from the Verizon) might be open. I'll be going there before the show for a few adult beverages regardless.

    I tried to score a last minute seat via TM for the 3/1 MSG show. Nothing opened up closer than the back floor. Being I saw them on the 28th at about 1/2 way up on the floor, I didn't want to spend the $200. Of course I missed out on a ticket posted here, that I would have grabbed in a second. Even now I've been watching TM to scope out AC tix and lots of good stuff left. The tour may not be as profitable as initially thought.

    Yes. I got the last seat left in section 123 last Sunday. Can't wait.

    That was my 4th row section A ticket I bet...you the guy who texted me?

    Would have loved to sell it here to someone at face but it got snagged by someone on ebay and I ended up making 50 bucks.
