I really hope i can get tickets for this! Has anyone on here ever been to this place? aside from the lawn seats that are super far from the stage, I'm under the impression that there's no pit at this venue

They did presale like a "roll" where you couldn't really pick your seats but "rolled" for seats they chose.  First couple times I rolled, it came up lawn.  Finally was able to get seats in the 200 section.  Saw All Time Low/ A Day To Remember/ Blink 182 at Darien Lake last August from the 300 section and the view wasn't too bad.  Looking forward to seeing Green Day from a slightly closer seat!

TL;DR:

If any of you have

any level 200 tickets and wish to sell them for any reason, please let us know!! Send a PM to @Todd since he's more active than I am.

We have section 400. We decided to try for better tickets today. Todd drew on a piece of paper and outlined the only acceptable seats. Dickish move, yes, especially after telling me not to complain about section 400. So I said "Why not 203 or 204? If I can get them, shouldn't I?" But noooo. That wasn't good enough. Todd had to work today during the main sales time, so I was put in charge. I couldn't pull anything in the 200s today except for 204 so I asked Todd if I should get them or not and he said it was up to me. I was already hesitant since he pointed that section out as a no-no. I decided to add them to my cart and buy them. Only when I attempted to buy them, they had already been stolen out of my cart within 20 seconds. I got so many errors with Ticketmaster. I am fed up. I lost out on more than one set of 204 tickets due to their stupid errors and site crashing. I was all the meanwhile also using the mobile app and on the phone. (I actually spoke to a representative and she was so nice and tried to help me find tickets as well). I heavily regret taking the time to ask Todd for verification. I wish I would have just gotten them. They would have been better than 400 by a lot. SO... If any of you have any level 200 tickets and wish to sell them for any reason, please let us know!! Send a PM to @Todd since he's more active than I am.

I was able to get section 202 row 12. Took an hour to get a damn shot to purchase the seats. But I'm thrilled with my seat selection.

There is a pit but it's $450 general admission VIP package only. :(

So our portion of this tour is exactly 7 months from today... which feels like FOREVER!!  So enjoying reading the experiences all the others are having and getting more excited for Darien Lake by the day!  I'm wondering if the setlist will change for our leg of the tour or if it will stay consistent with what they're playing now?

Unfortunately I only got lawn tickets for this show. It'll be my 6th time seeing them but first from a lawn section. Has anyone seen them with lawn seats before? Or been to this venue with lawn seats? And how was it?

Here's a pic from when I saw Def Leppard from the back of the lawn.... not the best view. But it was from the back of the lawn, I was against the wall. If you get there early enough and get a spot at the front of the lawn, i'm sure it's much better

Oh ok that's not as bad as I was thinking. I have seen much worse lawn seats. How was the sound out there?

I don't really remember. I have some videos I took, but I don't think an iphone video is a fair representation of how the sound was :P

I had lawn tickets for a concert quite a while back and the sound was actually really good.  At one point during that concert I was able to get close to the front of the barrier that separates the lawn from seating and, while it WAS a bit better, it was far more crowded and the people were very pushy there.  After a while I just gave up and moved back and watched it on the large screens.  A friend of mine who goes to lots of concerts at Darien Lake will ONLY buy lawn tickets.  He feels it's a far more relaxed and better experience.

I've been to Darien Lake a hundred times and IMO the sound is better on the lawn. I like it back there . Also,you saved at least $50 so there's your overpriced shirt paid for (or hope for $10 bootlegs in the parking lot after the show)

I have tickets on section 202 row 8. Anyone knows of the view is good (I am quite short) and whether it is close enough to the stage?

if I do travel for this show, it will be quite an inconvenience (but I really do want to see the show) so I just want to see if my tickets are worth it. Thanks!!

That sounds like a good seat! That's the section I wanted tickets for, but missed out on.

I have section 201, row 7 so we will be fairly close during the concert!  I think both of us have pretty decent seats! I wish it was in the 100 section, but I won't complain about what I have! I'm short, too (4'11") so being able to see is always a fear for me but Darien Lake's seats are on a slight incline.  When I was at the Blink concert last year in the 300s section I was able to see pretty well even though there were people standing in front of me.
