Other way around, Tommy. Seat 1 in Sec 3 is on the aisle between 2 and 3. Seat 1 in Section 1 is the far right (looking at the stage)

Hmm, looked at a detailed seating chart...what would be the obstruction?

The speakers used to be set up on the stage, seriously blocking the view from the far right and left. But they're hanging now so like Pam said, you can pretty much see the whole stage.

It is the way the stage is set back so if you are closer to the front but too far to the right or left in section 1 or 3 of the stage you can't see half the stage. There are blind-spots but the farther back you are the better.

Yea...I know.....it just ticks me off. But really who would buy lawns for over $100 when you can still some seats for slightly more? Do they think we're that stupid?

Holiday Inn for us, too.

Finally got something decent (a pair in Sec 1 row FF right next to the box seats) after about an hour of open air reserved throwbacks.

It was a bit of a pain dealing with Camden and GW on sale at the same time. Centered good Camdens proved a lot harder than I thought after last year. The lower side sections at GW are great compared to the lower sides in Camden...it's like watching the show from the hallway.

I'm just glad we weren't in the car at 10:00 this morning like I thought we'd be. That would have been rough.

Just need to line up the dog sitter now!

It's the angle more than anything because some of the speakers on the side of the stage might block Nadirah and Tina but that's pretty much it from my experience and I've been all up and down that side over the years

You must mean Sec 1....Utley is on the right side of the stage....Nadirah and Tina are far left. I have sat in the far left of Sec 3 and saw everyone on stage, and Marilyn & Glenda were 10 rows behind me that show and said the same thing.

Was looking around at what's available again for the heck of it and the interactive seating chart is now available. Says that there is nothing available in the lawn (of course) but also nothing in Sec 9 or 15, both sides of the lawn seats. Could it be those never went onsale to create more demand? Any body get or see seats for sale there today?

Interactive chart
I can't believe there are still 1200+ seats available for the show. TONS of open air seats.
