    Default May 19, 2012 - St. Paul, MN

    Who's going? Who wants to go?

    I'm looking to make a trip up the Mississippi river to the Twin Cities and use a Van Halen concert as a means to an end. And since it will be my third show of this tour, I want to be close. Thus, I've been watching the Platinum seats through Ticketmaster. However, you have to buy those in pairs. So, I'm throwing a line out to see if there is anyone else looking to go to the St. Paul show on May 19 who is also interested in a close single ticket.

    Also, since I searched and didn't see a pre-show thread for this show: Is there anyone else out there in VHL land who is going to this show?

    I am loosely considering this show for the exact same reason you are and was just looking at all the good seats available yesterday. The 2 Chicago shows weren't enough for me. Just not sure I could swing it.

    Wow, I'm surprised there isn't anyone from the Minneapolis area here on the Links representing and going to the St. Paul show at the end of May. I'll be there but it's going to be during a four-day road trip on the bike with the show being a means to an end. Hopefully as the show nears there will be some people from here to meet up with at the Eagle Street Grille across from the Xcel Energy Center for some pre-show hoopla!

    I have decided to hit Grand Rapids, Fort Wayne or both, as they are closer. Saw in another thread you scored a 5th row seat...sweet! How'd you get it? Platinum?

    Perhaps you'll be the sole Linker at the show??

    Yes, I pulled the trigger on the Platinum seats. For me, the timing of a late spring road trip up the old Miss on the river road worked perfectly to have a Van Halen show at the apex on a Saturday night. So I watched the tickets until they dropped right where I wanted them so I bought the exact seats I had been watching all along. Good thing too as now there are only five sets left on Wolf's side only. I'm sure there will be some other great tickets released from the VIP pool a few days before the show but I will be on the road away from a computer at that point so the 13% markup ($25 per ticket) is worth it to me. I may actually have the extra ticket available after a couple of friends of mine make the final decision of whether to go or not.

    What's really frightening is that I too am looking at hitting either Grand Rapids or Fort Wayne later in the summer! Probably Grand Rapids as it looks like a much better bike ride up the east coast of Lake Michigan.

    Getting something in the first couple rows on the day of the show for face value feels awesome and is a rush, but I'd pay $25 over face for 5th row for a show for every concert from here on out!

    I was one of those suckers who paid much more for 4th row for the 4/1 show in the rush after they went on sale. $25 over is not too bad at all.

    I'll be there. I bought 2 tickets on the floor on Wolfs side, like row 40ish.
    I wish I wouldn't have bought them right away and waited to see if I could get better ones later.
    I had such crap seats for the 2004 Sammy reunion tour and I told myself never again am I shelling out $$$ for arena seats. I hope I'm not disappointed.

    I'll be there. I'm a horrible ticket buyer. I the best I could find the day they went on sale was in the lower bowl, but close to the stage. I figured that would be better then tickets in the back rows of the floor section. Are better seats released later on?

    Watch Ticketmaster the last 5-7 days before an event and if you see better seats call them and see if you qualify for an upgrade/exchange.

    I live in Minneapolis and got the front row VIP package. I will be there next Saturday, can't wait. Hoping we get a sound check with our package:-)

    My wife and I will be here too. We decided to splurge on platinum awhile back. 3 rd row center...after the bummer news today (hopefully just a stop for the Mighty VH train) I am glad I did.

    Am meeting up with an old co-worker ahead, but will try to steer it towards the Eagle Grill.

    Also for those out of town, Xcel has an open ticket area and waiting area so hearing soundcheck from the ticket area should be doable. I was at the MN Wild's store (open tomorrow until 5:00!) there once and heard some shit country act play a decent. Hells Bells followed by 15 minutes of crap. South end of the building.

    Make sure you ask what the hell is going on, and report back. This is your duty, carry it out.
