I'm stoked, I got the cheap nosebleed seats, but the arena here only holds 8,000 people so any seat is a good seat. I was online as soon as it went on sale and bought 2 tickets @ $75 each (not including the highway robbery "convenience" charge and service charges). My sister was standing in line at a local outlet, and they didn't even have any "cheap" seats, they were all $250. So I tried to go back online for her for the cheapest ones, but of course they sold out. I got her the 2nd cheapest seats so she was happy. My girlfriend sprang for the $250 tickets and my sister's $95 tickets have a better view and is closer to the stage. So yeah, you're right about getting fleeced. THe show is totally sold out so they may just add another one.
I love Sting, he is so uber musically talented. Andy probably has sour grapes that his career never took off the way Sting's did, boo-hoo!
Can't wait to see the show!
