The fact that Bob’s piano is somewhat closer to the front of the stage and angled a bit more head-on has made a difference over the years. No question.

Saying the set up hasn’t changed since 2012 just points out that you’re oblivious.


With all due respect, my friend, WTF are you talking about?
Please reread the 2nd paragraph of my post you are reacting to.
(Maybe I'm oblivious for agreeing with you? ha ha)



That wasn’t directed at you. It was the person who continually says the stage hasn’t changed and hasn’t sat up front to make that claim

I wrote everything in one post so as to not make multiple posts. I should have written the screen name to avoid confusion but since you never said the set up hadn’t changed I figured it was understood. Sorry to confuse you. I can see how it would be misinterpreted

BTW

I got a full refund for my Boston ticket and a $75 gift card from Ticketmaster for my Albany ticket.

There ya go! That's pretty good.
And I got them to top off all my beers, once I convinced them the top half was just foam.
So everyone walks away a winner.

Nice followup.

Hahahahaha
Did you really get them to do that? They’re supposed to to a certain degree...lol
Also did you read my correction about my previous post?

Absolutely got them to do that.
And, yes, saw the correction.
Good job on the refund & credit.
I wonder if Bob’s piano angle will be tweaked in March?

Ha!!! Awesome. I LOVE THAT!!! I thought you were joking. I hate it when companies try to rip you off.

I was wondering the same for March

That's fantastic! I complained to SLOTIX (the specific VIP agency that runs the package deals) after the Chicago show and got nothing (they determined it wasn't obstructed in the front row). Should have gone through Ticketmaster, as my aggregate spend through them has to be astronomical over the years.

Yarr! Remember the Pearl Jam / Ticketbastard fiasco?

All it did was create ruined experiences for fans and gave more wealth & power to Ticketmaster. They got bigger while Pearl Jam faded into obscurity and came crying back to Goliath.

SLO nor Ticketmaster refunded me. My Americans Express did. However, try the lady I posted in that other thread from Ticketmaster. You might have luck. I know 2 people that did

You know there are many ppl complaining to Ticketmaster and SLO tix and it’s the same answer. The management said it’s not obstructed view. How can do many ppl from all over the states at so many venues be complaining of the same issue? And management repeatedly says the seats weren’t obstructed.

Seems like something a class action could solve really. I mean some ppl are out multiple thousands. I’m only out about 200 bucks from what I originally wanted back as a refund. Ppl who went to multiple shows and bought the front row packages got a royal screwing.
I mean the venue in Albany was made aware of potential problems before the show began. They offered nothing to resolve the issue. How can they not refund you? Bc management said so? Of course they’re going to say no. They lose money they ripped off ticket buyers. They didn’t deliver the product. It’s billed as Bob Dylan and his band. Well when you can’t see who was billed for the show, how is the view not obstructed and how did they deliver what we paid for?

Is there a picture somewhere. Just to get an idea of what to expect this spring. With regards to the new piano angle.

Is there a way of getting a message to management so that the issue doesn't raise its ugly head during the spring tour?

The piano looks side on in that video. I've a feeling it shifted more head on after Chicago?

It seemed about the same angle, to me, this Fall as it was in the Summer.
The vid was not taken head on, it was from the right side, no?
And I wasn’t at Wintrust...so maybe poor example?

amazing. Happy Saturday !! :D

This view, just posted in the Vancouver Live thread by the awesome kaleidosc0pe, also tells the story.
Stage setup for Summer & Fall were quite similar, if not identical.

I attended four shows each leg last summer and fall (including the Funner and Las Vegas shows, between which this spurious piano shift was purported to have occurred) and, like I've repeated several times (and thus been called demeaning names and personally insulted), nothing was different about the setup! Being an informed and empowered (and ever-grateful) consumer, I would again suggest to choose your tickets wisely, and enjoy the shows like I did.
