Just grabbed closing night row H plus row N March 13! That's a nice split of the shows over the run...

How did everybody do?

How did everybody do?


I did exactly how I wanted to do. I bought 1 night, 3/19 for the barely affordable $100 + Ticketbastard fees at a theater known for poor sound quality in a location I can park my Westchester living car to see 1 of my favorite bands who has decisively given the decent tickets to the wealthy. My seats are in the Orchestra under an overhang that will no doubt make the sound as bad as it can be.

On the other hand, I'm happily going to see Further at Mohegan Sun for $50 2 weeks earlier. I'll probably also catch Railroad Earth & N. Mississippi Allstars over the prior weeks for $35-45.

The more I think about it, the more disappointed I am with the 3 original members. They remind me of how Harley-Davidson walked away, in the late 80's/90's, from their core customers who were loyal & kept the company going during it's tough times in the 70's & early 80's only to cater exclusively to the wealthy later. Dealerships won't even work on bikes older then 10-15 years. They sell $350m in clothes annually and less & less bikes. They are paying the price for that build-up now. Greg, Butch & Jaimoe won't ever pay the price because their mint is already guaranteed but they clearly don't care about the fans at all. It's just "the" business.

I'll go see my 1 show with zero regrets that it's not more. Honestly, if someone offered me $200 for my $100 tickets for 3/19, I'd consider taking it. My usual anticipation for seeing the Beacon run is non-existant at the Palace. The shows will probably be more like the summer shows but with worse indoor sound.


Glad you asked? LOL

<rant over>

Best early grabs ever. I only go to Mon/Tues shows, but pulled some great ones. 3 shows, row BB two nights and row JJ one night. All center orchestra.
Bring on NYC. Looking forward to visiting another part of Manhattan that I probably wouldn't have visited otherwise. There is nothing like the ABB in NYC. By the way, I've heard a lot of good reviews regarding the sound at UP. Next month can't get here soon enough.

There are mixed reviews on the web. Don't skip the positive ones. They are there. There are a lot of factors that go into a show's sound. Seat location, band's sound system, and board operator play a big part.

I didn't this year. 2 tickets & a night of partying in NYC is too pricey for us nowadays.

I had to settle for MOOGIS. Best seat in the house! Can't wait. Best $150 I have ever spent.

I'm just doing Moogis too. I want to remember my trips to NYC the way they were.

12/15/19 for me. 2 nights on the floor and one in the lower loge - I hope they get the sound right!

Of course you're 100% right but in the acoustically great theaters, the board engineer's job is easier, your seat selection less relevant and most major touring acts have the equip to get it right. I've heard some poorly mixed Beacon shows, last NYE's Mule show is an example. Great show but the board never got it right and we were about 11 row center section. It was a hash mark on an otherwise delightful evening of tunage.
