    Default Same day tickets

    If I just show up at the arena here in Phoenix the night of, do you think it's possible that I could get 2 nose bleed seats cheap?

    There are so many shows unfolding at one time here. Chickenfoot on the 1st of June, The Scorpions on the 15th and VH on the 16th. I don't have the $$ for all.

    Do it all the time here on easy coast. Should be no problem . Arenas always open seats up day or two before show. Some guy in Philly got front row EVH side 1 day before show.

    I'd say you could do better than nose bleeds if you have the scratch.

    The scalpers have screwed a lot of fans on this tour, but if you're patient you can score great seats at face value or less the afternoon of the show.

    I'm thinking about showing up in Rosemont or Nashville with a pocket full of cash and trying to squeeze in a third show.

    If I was in your shoes I would skip the Chickenfoot show and use the extra $$ for a decent VH seat . This is one show you do not want to miss !
    Oh and btw , the Chickenfoot tour is on the verge of being cancelled .

    I'll be buying day of in Phoenix too. Wifey will probably give me a note in my b-day card a month earlier, something to the effect of it being a voucher for two of the best tix I can find for under $400. I've never not scored huge this way and usually for less than face value.

    There is a book on Amazon/elsewhere something to the effect of the secrets to obtaining the best concerts seats at the most affordable prices. The main "secret" is to purchase your tickets at the last possible moment before the show. Sure there is that slight risk you will be burned and not see the show, but with the various ways tickets are being sold these days, more often than not you will get an excellent seat at face value. Unsold VIP package seats being dumped back into the regular pool is one great way. Heck, if you play StubHub or Craigslist the right way you can get them at below face value when people need to dump seats. Great seats are worthless if you need to sell and are still holding onto the tickets the day after the show.

    The only way you're gonna miss the show is if you buy a ticket that has already been scanned, as happened to a friend of mine once. At worst, you might miss the first song or two. But a LOT of good tix get eaten at the last minute, so they are out there to be had if you can find them and be sure they're the real deal. The ones who buy them on the first day they go on sale or the next few days are the ones who pay top dollar. I'm not one of them. But I always sit near those guys.
