Hello Hello!!

Important Question @ 12:09 am

sabneraznik:
I'm currently feelin: anxious anxious

I'm almost positive no one has asked this before and I need to know.

I have nosebleed seats for Cleveland in Dec. but I'm also on lofstrand crutches. Does anyone know if they have a section for Disabled at concerts? If so, would they let me in it despite my ticket number?

*desperate*

They have to have a section for the disabled. It's a violation of the ADA if they don't. I've got a type of cerebral palsy, so I know all too well about these sorts of things. I don't know if they'd let you in there if your leg is broken...unless it isn't? What are lofstrand crutches and why are you on them? If you are permanently disabled, then yes, they have to let you in, as not letting you in is also a violation of the ADA.

I also have CP. Lofstrands are the kind that are like canes with cups around your arms just above the elbow. Have you been to a show? What's the view like from Disabled?

Wow. Don't need crutches, although I'm wheelchair bound if something happens to one of my legs (which has happened twice - once for a tibial tendon transfer that put me in a cast for six weeks and the other time for a broken knee...on the same leg as the aforementioned surgery). The rest of the time, I limp, and can't run worth a damn. I'm hydrocephalic, by the way...it's a form of cerebral palsy, so I just tell people I have CP, because when I tell them what it's really called, they're always like, "wha...?"

I've never been to a show, unfortunately (ironically, the only rock show I've ever been to was a Beach Boys concert when I was 7). Can't afford it, especially now that I'm in college. Add to that the fact that I can't drive, and there you have it. Actually, my mom tried to get tickets to the upcoming Montreal show, as that is during Thanksgiving Break, but to no avail. *stabs ticketmaster, scalpers, etc*.

And E-Bow the Letter is one of my favorite REM songs ever...I love New Adventure in Hi-Fi. You should have seen what I went through to track it down and buy it, lol.

LOL

Well, I'm banking on ADA... I really need it. Although U2 is worth torturing myself and every one with me to get to the top and eeeek! back down... but I'd rather not.

Well in normal situations, I think you are supposed to ask for disabled area when you call and order tickets. But I dont think Ticketmaster has that option online.

I'd call up Gund Arena and let them know your situation. They might refer you to Ticketmaster, but it seems to start off they would know more about how that works in general at their venue.

Although, I also know there are people in this world who will claim to be disabled just to get tickets because there are often "seats" in that area available when otherwise the concert is sold out. Hopefully the disabled area isnt sold out as well by now

*Sighs in hope* No they didn't have that option online. And I've already got the tickets... I hope I can work out something with them. Thanks. ;)
