$145 for upper bowl isn't terrible depending on filed of view

I assume those are flippers. For shows like Metallica you got to get into the pre-sales. I had row 1 seats for like $150

They appear to using an open x shape stage. It would be on a side of the arena and not an end so it would have the shortest distance to the stage of any upper bowl seats. About 10 rows up rows up from the front of the upper bowl. If they were $145 a ticket with fees it would be a no brainer really.

Damn I should have just done the presale. That means I should have been able to have upper bowl for less than $100 a seat which would have been fine for my second time seeing them.

It's very dark and ominous outside here too, we were supposed to get rain all week, but other than the big storm we had Sunday morning it's been pretty light. Had some crazy ass clouds though

I can't access Deadspin at work but I assume that's the Canadian lady who unfortunately couldn't reach the bathroom before defecating. Nice of the Tim Horton's rep to offer to receive the excretion from her to throw it away including her napkin wipes

yeah that would be the one

I thought locking bathrooms from non paying customers was only something done in America. Do they do that in Canada too? Not 100% sure that is what happened but who gets so pissed off their best recourse is to shit on the floor and then pick it up and throw it.

I had Tim Hortons coffee once... Frankly, if that shit made it into their coffee machine, it would be an improvement. Maybe she really was being a helpful Canadaian.

No, powder coated. Maybe a layer or two of clear on top for protection, though.
