Where my friend and I will be sitting this Friday night

A friend and I are going to see U2 this Friday night in Oakland, and I think we've done a bit of an upgrade over where we were looking at being stuck, initially. At first, I bought a ticket in Section 227 (the first flashing circle I made) just for myself, but when I learned she'd never seen U2 before, I tried getting a pair of tickets instead. only had pairs left in the 227 area, and given that they're diagonally behind the stage, I was fearful of having views blocked.

So, after checking eBay I found a pair in 208 (the second flashing circle I made) that we wound up paying only $10 more for than we would've paid through, fees factored in. The new spot should give us a great angle to view the stage and screens from!

What do you think for it being close to the last minute and not being able to afford something more expensive?

mission accomplished!

I'm running on less than 4 hours sleep so I'll try to make this brief. As soon as the TM guys logged on, all the floor was sold out! I wasn't expecting to actually get a floor ticket anyway so I went ahead and splurged on a seat. I refused to by a triple digit seat so I got the happy medium. That's more than I've ever paid for any show. More than double and almost triple for a single at the other shows I've been to. Oh well. I want to do this and I know I'm going to get a good show :-). I ended up in section 110, row L, seat 1. Here's a view:

Not bad. I'm taking my zoom camera so hopefully I'll get some nice pictures. I'm a certified psycho ;-)! Went out there all alone, waited nearly 5 hours b/c MARTA doesn't run earlier, and I'm still going on less than 4 hours sleep! Its the rush I like. The rush that comes with knowing that soon, I will see two more of my favorite bands and after this show, I will have seen my top 4 in concert at least once :-).
