I am attempting to buy tickets on stubhub on for Dave Matthews Concert. I am trying to see if I can buy basically front row tickets... Any heads up as to how to tell if they are first row on the floor level or back row on the floor level?

I dont see any specifics with it. Anyone have a heads up? Thanks!

I think the front sections are A1, B2, C2, do a search for the seating chart. Not sure what row they start with though. Could be some double letters in the front, or numbers or who knows. I would guess you are going to pay a ton for front row if you can get it. Do they have a fan club? Sometimes those seats go to the fan club and you most likely wont be able to buy them if that is the case.

Don't believe the seller. Make sure you check the seating chart. I've bought out of town baseball tickets which were "aisle seats". I guess ALL seats are in an aisle but my seats were unfortunately mid-aisle.

Stay off of StubHub...I'm the former Marketing Coordinator/Box Office Assistant at that venue and I can't begin to tell you how many people get ripped off or scammed using that site.

And, I have news for you...You're not going to be able to get "front row seats." They're usually on a hold for the show or for the building purposes...if they're not used, they're generally released a couple of days prior to the show for the general public, but they're usually taken instantly by scalpers...

Speaking from experience- I've seen it first hand.

Good luck!

I don't know about anyone else, but I've been using StubHub for the past few years. I've never been 'ripped off' - I know what the original costs were and I check seating charts for everything I see.
So to the OP I'd say research the seating charts online. Some venues have the interactive charts. Good Luck
