Got tickets to Sunday and Monday. Left orchestra. Not sure what rows yet. Since I was at work, I gave my presale code and credit card to a friend and she went through the process for me.

Saw Franz Ferdinand there a few years ago. Sat towards the back of the Orchestra.

There's not a bad seat in the house, but I'd argue that the best seats in the house are on the loge.

never been but someone on here said this:

there is no general admission at tower. there's an orchestra pit up front, but i don't think i've ever seen it not seated. rows AAA-EEE. maybe they unseat it and make it GA for some shows, but then, it's only enough seats for 50 people.

the theater is small. 3000-4000 people maybe? so anywhere you are is great. the last 15 or so rows have a balcony overhead, but the sound is still good.

when i saw the arcade fire there, they called everyone otu of their seats an said to come up front, and there was a mad rush for the front. the back half of the theater was empty as everyone made it GA essentially. it was pretty cool.

i could see the same thing happening here, just without security's approval.

I've got two tickets for myself for both nights. Still waiting for two printable tickets for a friend from Western PA. Looks like the best seat I got is Row SS in the orchestra.

It's at the front of the balcony, near the bar and slightly elevated. Great view.

I am going to both nights also. The Tower is an awesome venue and I agree with whoever said there is not a bad seat in there.

That's great to hear! I've been to Tweeter, Electric Factory, etc etc, but this is my first time at the Tower Theater!

It is also soooo much easier when it comes to parking. There is a garage about a block away that they direct you into. You still have to pay $10 or whatever but it's better than parking in some huge lot or on some side street and then having to take forever to find your car.

damn, the first seats offered to me were like row aa loge but i thought orchestra would be better im such a dumbass! screwed me up to, when i searched for more seats there were none available the first 7 times i tried. then it gave me 4 seats in row pp left orch guess thats pretty good. im hoping for some kind of rush the stage thing to happen cause im not trying to stay seated the whole time...

if anyone has 2 extra tickets for the first night and wants to trade for my 2 extras for the 22nd let me know

Here is a decent seating chart of the Tower Theater

I've got 5 people flying in for the weekend from Jacksonville, we're gonna do this up right!!!

As I said, we bought our tickets one-by-one. If anyone has seats adjacent to any of these and wants to trade up in order to sit next to someone, please let me know.

In order of purchase:

L/C LG, row BB, seat 14
LFT OR, row QQ, seat 16
L/C OR, row OO, seat 122
L/C OR, row RR, seat 126
L/C OR, row NN, seat 122
LFT OR, row C, seat 4
LFT OR, row B, seat 4

If anyone has a pic of the interior of the Tower, I'd be interested to see it. So, you really think the Loge seat is my best one? That would make sense since that was the first one I was able to buy.
So, we've got 2 couples and 1 single guy, probably the couples will take the 1) L/C OR row OO and row NN seat 122 and 2) LFT OR, row B & C, seat 4.
Although, since that Loge seat is probably the best one, I'm tempted to ditch my wife and go sit up there by myself! Doh!
