    Default live nation offers ticket exchanges..improve your seats!

    http://concerts.livenation.com/h/ret..._nav_1_returns

    Refund & Exchange Policy
    Refunds and exchanges are available for tickets for participating venues and teams.

    Refunds
    Get a full refund on tickets for participating venues and teams if you change your mind within 72 hours of purchase. Call 800-653-8000.

    Exchanges
    Don't suffer from seat envy. If you see seats you prefer that are the same price or higher for your event, call 800-653-8000 to exchange the ones you have and just pay the difference, if any. Tickets bought at a Ticketmaster retail location must be exchanged at the same location. One exchange per person, per event.

    We can't refund or exchange tickets for events that are less than 7 days away, and we can't refund or exchange resale ticket purchases for TM+ events.

    Some non-participating venues (and artists, teams, etc.) have a "no refunds or exchanges" policy. But if the event is close and you can't make it, we'll do everything we can to help. Contact us!

    i improved my seats big time...17 rows closer, same price, just for a few minutes on the phone.

    since the tour isn't selling eel chances are you will see seats closer popping up within same price range. thought some of you would enjoy this possibility.

    JMJ, thank you for this. I called and upgraded two different pairs of tickets for Bonner Springs, KS. Moved one pair (for friends) from upper level to row 27 lower level. More importantly, moved seats for me and my boy from lower level Row K to lower level Row E! Can't wait.

    Great info JMJ. I've used this a few times in the past few years to upgrade seats.

    This is an awesome tool, but it totally backfired on me once. A few years back I tried upgrading some seats for another show and found out that the process requires that they release your tickets before reserving the new seats. Well, in the middle of the process somebody online beat me Live Nation rep to the seats that I wanted, and she couldn't give me back my original seats either. So, even after escalating through layers of management on the phone I was left with worse seats at the end of the day.

    I decided to take it up with Live Nation reps in person at my venue and they ended up giving me and my friends an un-used VIP Box. So it all worked out in the end, but it was incredibly frustrating and risky.

    Well maybe a few more folks like me got screwed over and they changed the process for the better! It seems like a bunch of you are having really good success at upgrading your seats, which is awesome.

    Edit: JMJ, I tried to PM you to chat, but your inbox is full!

    So what they going do with some of these venues looking less the half full? I know they are probably still making $$ but do the band really want to play to a bunch of empty seats? Maybe everyone on the lawns will be pushed forward?

    I saw this thread after I decided to upgrade. Went from row 27 off to the very far right to row 14 center. Cannot fucking wait!

    I just got off the phone with Ticketmaster and upgraded from row KK to row E on Wolfies side for the Bonner Springs show on 7/22. I really appreciate you posting this. It is going to be a much better experience for an extra $60.

    Sweet! Thanks for posting.

    I just went from the far side to the middle. Still pretty far back, but it's still way better than where I was.
