I just went to see what sort of seats I'd be offered if I extended to Wellington as well as (the fantastic row B seats I have for) ChCh, and just scored SStalls row C, seats 50 and 49.

I notice on the Wellington map that there are two stalls sections (1 and 2) - do I have 3rd row from the front, or are there two row Cs?

My luck has been so crappy lately - this might be my turning point!!!


>>SStalls row C, seats 50 and 49<<

If it is the same layout as C.H. and i am sure it will be.

3rd row from the front (facing) stage left, 5 seats from the isle inbetween the left isle (facing stage) centre. Confused

Yeah they don't show the seating plan at Wellington except at the Ticketek offices.

J62? Is that for Wellington? How wide is the floor? Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne is only 45 seats wide on the floor, so this venue must be massive!


I'm not sure how wide it is, but i think 20 was about centre stage.

I feel rip-off now, at the side. Never get the first tickets you come to. Not like me who did. lol

Yay! that is absolutely the coolest thing ever. Now all I need is to ensure I keep my ear to the ground on a warm-up show and my life is complete.

I'm marking assignments. Students should be happy that I'm now in this mood!

And I must add, I am very organised with this trip now I have my show tickets. After booking my trans Tasman flights a few days back, have now booked my accommodation in both cities and today organised a flight from Christchurch to Wellington at the bargain basement price of $60.00! It's all good so roll on March I say Big Grin

I was 2 seats from the left hand side isle (centre block) for C.H. and my seat number was 42.

So the centre block ends with 44, not sure what it starts with 15 ??.

Think Surferlisa might be right dead centre might be 20.

Gonna check tomorrow, and will try to get a plan for Wellington, or at least a photo, to put up for the members.

It's cunning that they don't show the seating plan on the net or on their site.

My mistake, I was 10 seats out... I'm informed we were actually seats 34 & 35 for Crowded House, which was right smack bang in the centre. The signage at the venue even confirmed as much, as from memory the left hand entry door was for seats 35 upwards, and the right hand door for 34 and below. The usher told us to take our pick Big Grin

Sounds good WRC. Smiler

This what i will aim for when i see the plan tomorrow.

Dead centre, say row 4 or 5.

I was amazed how different the sound sounded from the soundcheck and when the auditorium was full of people during the gig.
You didn't seem to get the full frequency response during the gig, like i heard at the soundcheck.

But it was good that C.H. had the P.A.'s mounted from the ceiling aimed down at the crowd, but i guess the crowd obsorb the sound or something.

But all in all the acoustics aren't too bad at the TSB.

I was interested how they balanced the speakers at the soundcheck with pink noise, and how they adjusted the stage monitor speaker levels, it seemed there was a rear speaker the back of the auditorium, like a sub woofer, but i maybe wrong, from memory the soundboard was 16 channels, 8 each side.

Here's a pic of the soundboard at C.H. after Surferlisa beat me to the setlist. Razzer

Excellent Pez. Smiler

>>Wellington

Damm i wanted that one. Razzer

There is either going to be a hell of a lot of people in a line for public sales in 7 1/2 hours time or none or just few. Confused

Hope there are some good seats left. Smiler

For all you kiwi's look skywards this week!!!!


Look out for Neil being interviewed on Classic Hits (NZ), Newstalk ZB and Radio Hauraki.

Excellent Gryph. Smiler

The excitment is building across the ditch never mind your Rod Steward's, Elton John's, or Kiss...The Enz Are Coming 'Home'. Big Grin

These gigs are gonna sell out real quick, as if C.H. didn't sell out quick enough.
After frigging around somewhat to start with, which wouldn't have helped, I realised that I had the best seats I could get, and am pretty happy with them.

Flying into Christchurch Friday 21 March 08 and flying out of Auckland Sunday 30 March 08. Petty exciting stuff. Big Grin

I don't want to book accommodation or travel within New Zealand until I see whether any extra shows will be added anywhere. If they are planning on doing this, hopefully it will be fairly soon.

Dammm i am not that happy, cause my ride and money weren't here before 9am.

I didn't get to the box office till 11am, and most of the floor had gone with pre-sales and 2 hours of public sales for Wellington. Confused

Still first floor, but went for floor centre, but right up the back, but the back blocks (floor) are elevated, where as the floor (main) isn't.

Oh well hope i hit 'the centre point of sound', as i have at some gig's near the back, but dammm i am 57 or 60 rows back from the stage. Frowner

And/or at this rate this first date at Wellington will be sold out in a matter of days IMHO, so maybe another date will be added for Wellington ??. Smiler

Excellent Carvedinmarble. Smiler

Hope you got a better floor seat than me.

I see on the ticket it says plus special guests, no further information, wonder who it could be ?.

BTW Overseas members that were worried about collecting their tickets, or having them posted overseas i see Ticketek has a new feature for ticket collection.

Internet ezyTicket (Add $5.00)
Tickets are sent as a PDF attachment to your booking confirmation email. Open ezyTicket using Adobe Reader, save it to your computer then print your tickets at your convenience. ezyTicket requires Adobe Reader version 6.0 or above (version 8.0 is recommended).

Don't know if Ticketmaster for the Auckland gig has the same.
Glad you did well Eyes since you missed out on Tim last year.

Not so much luck at this end due to a comedy of errors... of the BP raising kind and how - especially with Frenz depending on me! Hugs in a big way Visitor, I know how much more screwed I was after 10 miniutes this morning, let alone 2 hours! Looking forward to catching up with you again anyway.

Anyone know what the view from the lower balcony at Christchurch is like? Got row A for that just in front of the stage in preference to ... can't remember what but it didn't look pretty.

I do believe that Ticketmaster has the same system for Auckland with printing your tickets. I tend to go for venue pickup when I'm on the wrong side of the ditch - one less thing to remember to pack, just can't forget the credit card on pain of death!
The seating chart on the internet for all 3 Enz NZ dates are crap. I am in the UK and booked tickets but do not really know where my seats are. I know where I am when I see Crowded House at Wembely at Christmas. Why such a crap seat map on the net of the gigs? I have never see the Enz before and I do not really want to see the back of people heads or little ants on stage. I am sorry to moan I may have great seats. Can someone please tell me if for Auckland null dd 717 upper bowl and null u 272 lower bowl are good seats and if for Wellington ust sblock1 row e seat 42 is a good seat and for Christchirch flr section sfl1 row l seat 25 is a good seat? Agian sorry to moan.

Mmmmmm A bit better than me in Block 3 Row M Centre, but it is elevated, where as the main floor isn't.

TSB Wellington: Wellington's largest indoor concert hall holds up to 5,600 people or 4,650 for a fully seated concert.

Don't know if this little video helps (proberly not it looks dark on the net) taken from row R floor dead centre, you can see the elevated stalls Block 1 and 3 when it pans around.
