Anyone ever see a show here? Is it worth the long drive from Philly? How is the sound quality? I have mixed feelings about outdoor venues.

I've never been there for a show but everyone says it sounds like shit because it's a fucking baseball stadium not an acoustically designed amphitheater.

I've seen shows there and it indeed sounds like shit, also not the best pre-show set up.

Also, you can easily be in a seat that has you facing the opposite side of the park from he stage.

I saw the Foo Fighters there last year. It was ok. I had 20th row seats off to the side. GA definitely works better for the area in front of the show. I had no problem with the sound quality.

Ugh, I don't think I'd make a long drive for this, but since it's 17 miles from my house I will be there.

Saw Bruce there a long time ago. Sound was OK. Recommend just trying to find a comfortable seat...go for the areas of the park that were recently refreshed.

You can also stand outside the green monster and hear some of the show, too, for free.

It'd be nice if they showed us which reserved sections are being used for Ten Club tickets so I know if it's better to go for GA or not.

Wrigley Reserved were seats between the GA section and the infield. There was a cheaper reserved option that was in the stands. I'm not sure of the location.

Looking for a 10c ticket to this show, have night 2 with low 10c number.

Extra for night 2 taken.

So where's the pre-show/post-show party at, everyone? Remy's? Game On? Beer Works?

Just kidding, I'm going to drive into the city, park using my wife's BU parking pass, go to the show, and immediately drive out of there.

Come on. We need a local's guidance so we don't all end up at the damn Wishlist circle jerk.

If you want some real advice: walk up Beacon St. a bit (towards Brookline) to get away from the park, crowds should be a bit smaller.

So much this. Head out of Kenmore and make your way towards Allston/Brookline. You'll be happier.

I just read some threads on the official website message board. As someone who knows Fenway really well, it was amusing to see people struggle to interpret the seating chart and figure out where there seats are.

If anyone has any fenway seating questions, I can help.

If you are referring to the Pit, they couldn't figure out a seating chart if it was 20 seats.

Ha! That was the impression I got, but wasn't sure if it was just because I was familiar with the layout.

On Tuesday, people who bought grandstand tickets 500 feet from the stage believed they had bought front-row center tickets. That's all you need to know.
