Couldn't get good seat for Hard Rock show

I'm so bummed that there was no presale for the Hard Rock Show:( I logged on at 5pm and the best I could get was the very back of the main floor...3 sections from the stage. So I guess I'm not going to the Hard Rock. I miss the days of the npg music club and primo seats!

Hey I got tickets but they really suck! I could not afford the 400.00 price tag for the front so had to buy the cheap seats. So I am stuck in the back SOB!sad Has anyone been to the hard rock, and can tell me if they can configure it for GA (taking out the chairs) in the front? If so I am really curious to why they are not doing that with this show considering that that has been the setup for all of his other recent shows.I was hoping that it would be GA, but I guess not. neutral I am a ticket snob! lol I hate not sitting in the front.I thought maybe this would save me a trip to vegas, but I know this won't be enough. So Vegas here I come. Hopefully I can afford it before he leaves.But yeaaa!!! I am going!! even in the back he will rock the house and I can't wait!! I hope he has screens so everyone can see....

The same thing happened to me. They were offering me better seats after I had already bought my tickets. They offered me row M sect 204 so I bought those and went back after to see what else they had and then row D popped up.... DAMN! How strange....

I got section 101 on the floor close to the front . I'm used to being in the first few rows though. sad

He really has us spoiled. eek

I'm sure that he would have hooked us up if he could have.

THANKS for letting me know good seats were still avail. I just tried again and got Sec 107 Row S. Not too bad. I heard the venue is good and only seats about 5,000.
By the way, I just saw Prince's 3121 show in Vegas last weekend and it was amazing! I have seen him so many times that I didn't want to show up 3 hours beforehand and wait up front. So I got there around midnight and was at the back of the club...but the view was great, the energy was incredible and the show was unbelievable!
Hope to see you at the Hard Rock!

I think we can all appreciate the npg music club righht now, I miss it so much. Hopefully, for his future concerts there will be presale tickets for his loyal fans who were members of the npg music club.

This is what I am wondering....they said that there was 100.00 seats in the 300 section. I am online at 5:00 sharp and never even saw a 300 section ticket!! The only 100.00 tickets were in the 204 section so 6 whole 300 sections (301...302...,ect...till 306) were just gone?? who bought all those seats? It just seems unfair. My guess is that radio stations got those. About 5 minutes later, all the 100.00 seats were totally sold out!

And I saw that they can do GA floor in the hard rock on one of the seating charts. It just really sucks that they did not do it. My guess is there will be alot of VIPs and big stars there and they could not have the tables and would not want the stars sitting so far away. Thanks guys!!... ugh I know... I am bitter lol I have not seen him since aug of 04,and was really looking forward to a GA show so I am bitchy.... biggrin

Well I live in Miami and there was an event going on, I want to say it was 96.5fm, don't remember I was switching around, and they did say something about a contest and giving away Prince tickets.

Oh Power 96 is giving away tickets?? Cool! Although I hate their music (blech, I am more of a Hot 105 kinda girl) I have to listen. Maybe I can win better seats. I am from south FL also born and raised,

Yes but the 300 section is way up in the back. You're closer for viewing if you have tickets in the 200 section.

Okay, I had to edit my own message. I called the Hard Rock, and spoke with a Karen and she specifically told me that tickets were not sold at noon. They were sold throught Ticketmaster and their box office and she said by 5:05 the front was pretty much gone.

So the tickets being sold at noon, according to this employee is not true.
