My nephew really wants to see a live show on his birthday, and we noticed that WWE is going to be in Madison on 5/28. I checked TicketMaster and it's do-able (TicketNow was obscene).

That being said...this looks to be a house show. I want to avoid nosebleeds so I'm looking at seats that are in the $57 range (according to TicketMaster) for him, my son, and I.

Does anyone here, know of different outlets that I can check for tickets?

Thanks in advance.

Gosh, I think we get tickets for TV tapings and they're great seats, for 30 or 35 bucks. Does the $57 take into account ticketmaster's service charges?

The WWE house show I attended cost $27.50 total for decent seats and I bought my ticket through Ticketmaster. I would take a close look at the specific fees involved. If you're getting screwed by facility charges, it won't matter where you get the tickets.

Also, keep in mind that for most facilities, you're much better off sitting in the lower level of the bleachers than in the back of the floor seats.

Granted, this was five years ago, but for about $120, I got three seats somewhere between rows 5-10 (I can't remember). House show tickets aren't THAT expensive unless they're raised prices in the meantime.

Note: We were on the infield of a baseball field. Yeah, it did get rained out once (only saw three matches) and they came back about four months later to the same field and did the show over again.

The $57 is with TicketMaster (and venue) fee of about $10.50. Most of the floor seats, and the first concourse are at this price. I was looking at rows towards the front of the concourse (as it's raised instead of floor level). The kids are pretty short.

I'm avoiding the nosebleeds, which are cheaper by quite a bit, because I'd like the kids to be able to see the action without binoculars.

Does Alberto del Rio ever drive into the arena at house shows? If so, start buttering up the owners of the local luxury car dealers. A friend of a friend provided the motorcycle that Chuck Palumbo rode around the ring at the show we attended. He was given front row seats for his entire family. As his youngest daughter was only a year-and-a-half old, she didn't require a seat and they let my sister use the empty seat. As a result, CM Punk saw her straight edge markings (she's legitimately straight edge) and threw her his shirt, then came and talked to her after the match.

If your brother lives there, does he know anybody at any of the local radio stations? I've won tickets to house shows before and I'm sure that stations will have tickets to give away again. It's cheap advertising for WWE.

Or, buy the nosebleeds, presume it won't be a sellout, and move down after the opening match.

This definitely sounds worth it.

Try http://www.savefans.com. My cousin knows the owner, they are a new site and that let you make offers, like Priceline is but for tickets. I offered a seller $11 a day before a Smackdown show and they took it, I sat in the lower bowl. Their service fee is reasonable too its only $5.

I generally dislike using services like Ticketmaster - sometimes going to the locations' box office could prove fruitful.

Not really. Sting has always really been his own deal, and He'll go back to NWA whenever he feels like it, really, which may be tomorrow and it may be never.
