I have a question...??? We're thinking about seeing Pink the 30th of Oct., but I'm having trouble getting a good seating chart for the Sprint Center...the only thing I can find is rows, but the chart only shows sections? Never been there. Do the rows, such as 20, is that lower in a section or higher?

Any help would be greatly apprciated! Thanks!

Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it. The thing with Floyd is- it really doesn't matter where you're sitting- it's going to be LOUD and it's going to be surreal.

I've seen a LOT of shows from a LOT of different bands in my lifetime and the Pink Floyd show at Arrowhead back in the late 80's or early 90's was simply awesome. Absolutely one of the best shows I've ever seen.

I'd snatch any ticket you get, particularly since there's rumors out there that Gilmour and Waters have kissed and made up.

Are you talking about the Roger Waters The Wall Live show? It is not Pink Floyd it is just a live version of The Wall with Roger Waters.
I just checked Ticketmaster and I was given sections online. Floor seats are still available.

I saw Pink Floyd at Arrowhead...the show rocked, but it was more than just The Wall.

Yeah, that's what I checked also....I was wondering how the rows were set up...looked like plenty of seats available....it just showed the sections, but not the rows(like if 1 was towards the top of a section or if 20 was towards the top and 1 was at the bottom?)

Thanks, it would be tremendous if Gilmour showed in KC!

1 will always be closer to the stage...20 will be 19 rows behind 1.

I take it, the tickets have already gone on sale?

If so, get the best available now.

If you're not happy with them, then save some money to buy extra tickets the day of the show.

This is a tried and true method of getting the best seats. The day of the show, go to a ticket monitoring service such as http://tickets.gruvr.com/

Starting around 8AM, the day of the show, you will start to see tickets appearing. The prices will drop as the day goes on. An hour before the show, you should see floor seats becoming available AND sometimes, below the actual ticket cost. A lot of these are considered "House" or "Media" tickets. But most of them will be scalpers who begin to panic because they have a handful of tickets on them and they haven't sold yet.

These are the same dudes who are posting tickets for sale on Craigslist right now- asking hundreds of dollars for good seats.

It doesn't always work, but in a lot of cases, it does. I've been able to see The Rolling Stones, Van Halen, Rush, Bruce Springsteen, Widespread Panic, Phish, Tom Petty, and scores of other bands (all of them, on the floor, close enough to have the artists breathing on you) by utilizing this system.

It takes some work and some diligence, but if you want to impress the hell out of your friends by scoring third row center to Pink Floyd at the Sprint Center, this is your best bet.
