I might have to go to this show. The 2018-19 NHL season will have started by then, maybe the Golden Knights will have a home game a day or 2 before or after and I can go to a hockey game and the concert. :lol:

The wife and I are seriously considering this, but are only interested if we can get "really good" seats. What sections should be on my list for the presale in a couple hours?

https://seatgeek.com/venues/mgm-grand-g ... ert+567894

Certainly it would seem that sections A-E would be fantastic. Maybe also the first few rows of the numbered sections (10-16)? Does anyone know if the rows are numbered or lettered?

Basically, if she and I are going to fly to Vegas for the show, we want it to be a great experience. We usually are lawn creepers, so all these other sections are foreign territory to me... LOL

I don't remember the seating to be like that in the link. I thought the floor was section A, B and C across the front, left to right as you face the stage. And sections D,E and F were behind the aforementioned A, B and C sections? Or, am I not looking at the correct seating chart?

I have no idea... That's just the concert seating chart that I found for the arena. I didn't see one specifically for this show.

LIPH,

As I remember the last show we attended in Vegas was not a high energy show for either the band or crowd? Like you, I am going go give this show a go as well. There are other things to do in Vegas, or so I have heard!!!

PS. LIPH and I were at the same show not in the same group.

That far back on the floor, you won't be able to see anything once everyone stands up. Have fun watching the show on the video screen.

At the April show last year I did something I almost never do at a concert. I left early.

SEC E Row L right in the middle.

I got sent to a "waiting" room and never got out. My wife logged in after me and got the above tickets. Not sure what was going on. We have been in SEC E Row K before and we enjoyed the view.

That makes me feel better! I definitely would have preferred section E, if given the chance. The waiting room did say that you were released for tickets at random, not strictly first-come first-served.

Hey All!

We will be seeing JB for the 17th time BUT our FIRST time in Vegas!

We got Section 6, Row S; 7 seats together. Sounds like we might be a ways away??

Any recommendations?

We are staying at the MGM Grand Signature attached to the MGM Grand Hotel.

Can't wait to see JB in Vegas!

Fins up!
