Row HH. Itís the very end of section 1, but last time I was in the front row of section 8. So this is 1 row (plus the aisle) closer.

I guess I can live with that. :)

But sincerely ó fuck that captcha shit. It took me five tries. And thatís after 6 minutes in the waiting room, plus an error that forced me to go back to the calendar page. :mad:

That captcha was really impossible. I lucked out though. Section 2, row A! No idea how I pulled that one off.

I got Section 2 Row U. I would have liked closer, but at this point, I'll take whatever I can get. I skipped the waiting room somehow, but failed the captcha multiple times.

They’re probably going front to back through one section at a time, so if you were close behind me, voila. ;)

What a horrible experience. God, do I miss the Spiral. As others have said the captcha was impossible, I hit the sale button as soon as it went live, and still had a 5 minute wait. Section 3 Row T - ARG - no pit either.

I'm surprised at the lack of a pit for this one. They had it for NINJA.

NIN posted on Facebook about tickets still being available for this show. They didn't post about any others. Looking at the Livenation page, they've hardly sold any tickets in the third section. I hope they wouldn't cancel due to lack of sales.

bummed I cant make it to this show, instead I will be sitting in an airport which is considerably less fun. Probably only could have afforded lawn tickets this time around anyways, I was on the rail for NIN/JA when they last were in Mansfield.

Kick me out of the fan club, I forgot to get tickets and can't be bothered to drive the 50+miles anyway. What's happening to me?!

How bad will traffic be getting from the Back Bay area to Mansfield? I haven't lived in Boston for a while, so I'm not sure what traffic will be like. I usually try to stay near the venue when I travel, but I wasn't going to stay in Mansfield when everything that I wanted to do was in Boston.

There is a decent chunk of tickets not sold... two sections look almost completely unsold and a few others are half full. Hopefully people will buy them up the last few days. Always weird when venues feel empty.

The emails I get from Live Nation have promoted the show a whopping two times — last week and when the tickets first went on sale. In that same span of time I've seen other shows pushed week after week after week. Why do I get the feeling Live Nation doesn't have much of a stake in this?

I hope the bands have been doing something to promote it outside of their core fans bases.

It'll be tough, especially if you leave around rush hour. The earlier, the better, especially if you want to see all the openers. I intend on leaving Boston around 4:15.

Also, I made the mistake of buying a single ticket in Section 4 Row G, after which multiple better seats became available. I called Live Nation at the time for an exchange, but they wouldn't allow me to upgrade. Hopefully I can get a better spot in one of the first 3 sections on show night.

Thanks. That jives with what my friends guessed, though they all live north of Boston and were guesstimating. I'll leave by 3 and find someplace near the venue to wait.

For those who have been to the venue, are there any restaurants right near there? I'm planning to leave early from work since I'm 2hrs away..figure I'll get there super early.

I'm quite sure there is a Chipotle nearby if that helps.

If anyone is able to snag the limited edition poster, plz buy two and I will pay you back + shipping + a little more. I'm hitting up two shows but won't be able to arrive early, so I don't like my chances of getting one. And I REALLY like that dang poster!

So, how shitty is the parking at Xfinitiy? I have heard horror stories about leaving.

VERY - There is only one way out, so if you aren't ahead of the pack, you can be in the lot for an hour or more. Personally, I'm leaving during hurt, and can't wait for TONIGHT !

I'm going to try my damnedest to get one of those signed posters tonight. Coming from 3 hours away and not arriving 'till 5. No presale ticket. Hopefully the regular line isn't too big by the time I get there...

There's a van from the local CBS affiliate at the entrance to the venue. I guess they figure that NIN/SG fans should be rowdier than the Keith Urban fans... There were numerous arrests and trips to the ER due to intoxication at his show here over the weekend.

I got a poster but not signed. Was nice they had some out front so I could put it in my car. The two other merchs tables inside still have them in stock...no idea if any signed ones are left. Wish I had your luck with getting a signed one!

So does that mean they're putting signed posters out before the opener now? I know for a while everyone was saying it was right after or near the end of OPN's set.

I grabbed the last poster outside. Not signed, but I am still happy with my purchaser.

They were selling them at the merch table outside the venue before doors. I was able to score one inside about 10 mins after doors.
