You don't say what market you are in but your isp is showing as Chicago. Ticketmaster has no pit packages available for either show in Chicago- so that means no broken up packages a few weeks before the show. If you want a pit ticket - the secondary market is your only choice at this point as FC is sold out also.

Your view is not blocked in the pit by reporters and all the cameras this tour are the robotic ones.

Pit ticket Face value is somewhere between 350-550 per tickets. The chances of finding a ticket only in the pit for face value given TM is sold out of pit packages, is somewhere between zip and zero.

Only you can decide if 1,300 is worth it. To me it is worth it...

What show are you looking for?

FC is sold out of ticketonly Pit tickets - that is the only place you can get them as of now.

Pit tickets depending on the market, could show up on TM close to the show date if the packages have not sold - but there is not guarantee that they will.

You can get pit tickets to some shows via the bon jovi website through "Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation Packages". I bought tickets for about $800 each plus $50 donation pet ticket to Soul Foundation for the show in Texas. The other packages were a lot more expensive and included things I persoanlly didn't need (like keepsake seats, backstage dinner, etc.). Don't know the status of Soul Foundation tickets for other cities though. Hope that helps.

Pit tickets for texas were more expensive than Pit for MSG. Soul Foundation tickets for MSG were 535 inclusive of the 75 donation to the foundation. That is really surprising, since MSG and Vegas are the highest priced tickets on the NA tour.

You should be able to see and if you have someone who is really tall in front of you. just move over a little.

I bought front row pit seats and I've sat a few rows back in the pit as well, and I have to say the seats that were back a few rows were the best because you can see more of the entire stage. If you can afford to sit in the pit, got to do it at least once.

But, any place you sit will be great because the concerts are a blast.
Have a great time!

I went on the JBJSF looking for pit seats and couldn't find them. Any ideas? Am I missing where to get them on the JBJSF site? I don't care what city, it's a gift and I am willing to travel.

yes your view should be great. i was in the pit here in winnipeg, a little further back is better on your neck, too close and your neck will get sore from having to look way up, the stage is high so you will see stuff, check out my facebook pictures and you will see what i mean

Winnipeg was a stadium with a completely different stage from the indoor arena shows. The stage is much lower in arena's and you can see the entire stage from front row in an arena.

Bon Jersey - I made a typo. It was about $800 for two tickets plus donation. Sorry about the confusion. Just a proofreading error. I only just saw this thread again. . .I am not on the forum very often. :) Happy Holidays.

They are sold through the tour page on bj.com . I'm not sure if there are pit tickets left for any shows. Still might be some good floor seats and lower level seats though...

Just bought 2 pit tickets, can someone who has sat in the pit, tell me if there are any "bad" seats in the pit? Who could "sit" during a Bon Jovi concert anyway? lol, but the seats on the out part of the pit might not be as good? Does anyone know?
