Is anyone else kinda cheesed off by this whole "flash seat" thing? I can't even get actual tickets... Sometimes I hate the modern world we live. Seriously just mail me some freaking tickets.

My wife did it for us, and she couldn't figure out how to get the tickets mailed. So now we are stuck with stupid flash seats. Im gonna look into changing that.

My wife is fighting with box office right now, trying to figure out this ticket issue. The web site never gave us an option besides flash seats. The drop box would not work. 

 

She is a good fighter, hopefully we can get it figured out. Without paying the $20 few that they want to charge.

Isn't a flash ticket like a PDF? It has to be since there's a ton of seats up on Stubhub now that are all downloadable.

I'm 128,Row 22. See ya there. We're pretty close to side stage and on Slash's side. I think just to move over to the next two closer sections it would've been about $100 more including fees.

We are section 128 row 19.  I had a chance at floor but didn't think we could see as well. This looks like a great section.  Can't wait.  We have 7 of us going.  See u there

I accidentally screwed up and ended up with the flash seats too.  Does anyone low if that can be changed to mail them or print them.

I've only been here once for WrestleMania 23. 80,000 seats huh? Does GNR have a chance at drawing over 40,000? What bands have filled this Stadium or come close?

We've been talking to the Ford Field box office all day, and basically all you can do is pay ANOTHER $20 for them to send you real tickets. Normally it wouldn't be a big deal, but to the gnr reunion show.... I want REAL tickets.

BTW, the show is on a THURSDAY, not Wednesday. It states the wrong day in the OP.

Fuck that. They already put about  $50 in service fees on two tickets. Like I said once these are sent in two weeks,I'm sure you have the opportunity to print them or mail them to a friend electronically as a PDF file.

I have had flash seats for 2 concerts in Detroit in the last year and there was absolutely no problem at all. Scan you credit card at the door and they have handheld scanners and you get a printout that looks like a small ticket. It does suck however if you save your tickets but you do get something that has your seat number, row and section and artist name.

Just realized Ford Field gave me the flash seats thing too. Never used it before, but looks simple enough.

can I highjack this thread? I am from friendly/polite Toronto...and I am/was (??) willing to take the 4 hour drive to your lovely city....by myself (yikes)....but my husband is against it (he's threatening to take up motorcycling if I go) and I'm scirrrred. I was trying to convince a strong friend to come but she won't take time off from work to go. Is this a pipe dream? I just know if you google "detroit" travel advisories come up.... TIA  *wishing right about now I was a 6 foot 4 muscle head guy*

Parking downtown can be a pain in the ass. For events, the parking lots charge $20-40. If you find a good spot you'll pay $10-20 and need to walk a bit.

I would park at Z Lot which is ~0.50 miles away and I think it cost me either $15 or $20 when I went to a NFL Game in December. I would get there early because it tends to get backed up before and after the events. 

As far as safety, Downtown Detroit has fine in my experience, although I'm not a woman!

I will be getting there with a friend quite early to ensure I get a good GA spot, so if you want to hang out with us, we'll have to chat closer to the even to nail down specifics.

How'd you get GA?

I even read online that they'll kidnap you and use you for trafficking (obviously you can't believe everything you read online)...I do have street smarts but I am by no way "rough" (for peets sake I'm going to get my hair "did" for the Las Vegas show this weekend)...so I'm not too sure if I have the guts to go out there on my own. Thanks for the offer of hanging out w/ you and your bud as long as you're not a car jacker/pimp/hobos/etc...but I will keep it in mind. I myself would LOVE a GA ticket...are there any left in Detroit? (for all other GNR shows I've mainly done GA...front row usually lol...)
