If the stage configuration and setlist this fall is identical to that of this past summer's tour, keep in mind that if you purchase a front row package ticket-

If you sit in the centre section, you will not be able to see Bob at all when he is seated at the piano (Bob standing at the piano is okay though)

If you sit on the right hand side (facing Bob), you will not be able to see Bob when he is standing centre stage (as he hung back this summer thus you were completely blocked by the piano).

The left hand side (facing Bob) should be fine.

First row ticket holders used to be able to stand at the rail for arena shows, no more. They can stand but not at the rail, only by their seat. However, seat holders behind you will not let you stand at your seat and shout at you to sit down. Therefore, if you are seated in a front row seat, you may not be able to see Bob at all for portions of the show. Yet, his people have no problems charging $500+ for this privilege. But at least you get a foam clock that breaks when you take it out of the box.

Find a link to your venue of choice seating chart before tickets go on sale so you will be prepared (buyer beware).

Same prices as Valley Center & Las Vegas? Most-likely.

These packages, incuding front row, are a complete waste of money

What's the closet you can sit and still have a good view not blocked by the piano?

It depends on high the stage is , I'd say. A bit like a game of russian roulette then. to spend all that money. the packages are outrageously priced, but hey it s Bob; he could be worth it. depends what you expect i guess. But actually from the seventh row center is great too...

I saw him in the 5th row center at the Academy of Music in Philly a few years ago and was definitely worth it but the stage was probably set up a bit different.

I guess I'll try to shoot for rows 5-10 center left at the Tower.

I was in the eighth row (centre) for a show this summer and I had a good Bob view throughout the concert.

Bob Dylan making his core audience sitting as far away as possible, at inflated prices, vol.5. :roll:
