Fuck, I wish they had that back in the day....I've seen Met 27 times.  Half a dozen on the Wherever I may Roam Tour.   

Ha, wish I could have bought a GN'R one, even for $2,000! I still would have saved and probably hit even more shows.

 

Also, got my ticket to the State College show today.

Picked up a couple tickets or the show in Vegas on November 26th. Kickass seats in my opinion. Section 205, Row A(front row). After seeing them from front row in GA in a stadium last year it will be cool to see them from this vantage point in an arena. Can't wait.

I honestly don't know why more arena bands do not use the center of the arena for their stage for their shows like Metallica does for their arena shows?  The section 205 seat that Bono listed, if that was for a show where the stage was not center, it would be a more subpar area to see the show.  The fact that the stage is center for Metallica, that section makes for a more fantastic view.

Not only that, they're also able to sell more tickets when the stage is in the center because there is no "behind the stage" sections blocked off.

I've never been to a show with the stage in the middle of the venue (besides U2 360 tour), but I don't see why that would have an impact on people moshing.

There are two massive GA sections to either side of the stage. If anything impacts the pit action it's the crowd not the stage set up. 

Also there wasn't a huge amount of "pit action" at the stadium show I was at in Denver aside from some crowd surfing and maybe a small mosh pit that usually consists of the same group of guys so....

Because moshing fans are usually in the 3-15 row. When you have stage in the middle all of those people are spread out. 

I saw Muse in Vienna in 2015 and 2016, it was night and day between regular and centered stage. Spot the difference between those crowds :D Check out Metallica's shows from Europe from recent years and from this year too

Yeah ok I could see the difference. I do know that at Metallica there was no mosh pit in the first few rows though. I could look back about 30 rows deep or so and see a little pit once in a  while. I would think those who are there to mosh would just move back and mosh but I guess you're right it would spread those who want to mosh out a bit more so it makes it more difficult to gather as a group.  Never really understood moshing myself. I get jumping up and down and rockin out but never really saw the appeal of smashing into each other and not paying attention to what's going on on stage. Either way won't have to concern myself this time around as I'll have rserved seating.

That’s how you do a fucking box set. They have like 4 whole concerts. If we got that for AFD it would have been a god send.

From listening to the songs I got for pre ordering, the answer is no. Although I’m glad they finally realized Dyers Eve is their best song.

I think I'll pass. 140 EUR for golden circle and 100 for standing is a bit much for me, as I haven't been following them at all these past decades and I've already seen them perform my old favourites a couple of times.
