    Reading Show

    Ok.... so I am trying decide if I am going to splurge with my income tax money and buy tickets for myself and my son for this show or not... I think it is going to be a no brainer as I am in SNC withdraw.... LOL. Not to mention, I am so excited about how many fellow Chasers are going to be there. So, for those of you who have been to this venue before, since I can't get anything up front because it is all single seats left and there is NO way I am letting my 9 year old son that far out of my sight... :S... I am looking at the seating and there are some options I guess kinda towards the back of the venue. If you are looking at a picture of the seating chart, there are several sections that look like they might be almost like small balconies, they are inbetween the main sections and only have about 5-7 rows with 3-5 seats per row. I am looking to possibly get tickets in one of these sections because I don't mind being away from the stage a little bit, and since we will definitely be staying for the M&G it's not that big of a deal. So what I am wondering is does anyone know about those sections are they elevated or blocked or anything? Basically, if you don't mind being away from the stage (as much as I would LOVE to look up from the front few rows and see Mike's smile close up... no tickets are available and I can't afford the ones that were posted on here by a fellow Chaser) are they ok seats?? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and hopefully we will see a few of you guys there!

Sadly.... just for the record.... due to the fact that all the guys were exhausted the "family photo" did not happen in Reading. I am hoping I get to be involved in one someday. Still not sure if I am going to get to make it to any of the fall PA shows... looks like they all might sell out before I even think about having the money for them. For those of you going, I hope you have a great time and if I don't get to go, I will live vicariously through your pictures and videos... ;)

thank you, Eileen! i will try this at my 2 shows in december. smaller venues (i think) than the reading show, so hopefully the m&g won't be as long. i don't mind waiting, if that's what i have to do to get some good shots with them :)

I think by "family photo" Rebecca meant that we were going to try to get a group picture of all the Chasers at the Reading show with the guys.

As far as other pix with the guys, the last few shows I have attended, their mgr and the venue staff have not allowed any pix during the m & g line. To get a group shot or individual pix, wait until the end of the line & have your camera ready. At the Tower Theater show, people went over for their group shot, then immediately asked for individual shots with a specific guy or 2 before the next Chaser came over for their turn. You can also mention your request to the guys as you go through the m & g. Not sure they'll always remember, so be sure to speak up at the end!

okay, again i'm pretty new to the chaser nation, so what is a "family photo?" how do i get a picture with the guys, other than individually during the m&g line? should i wait towards the end of the m&g line? i'm going to to 2 shows this year, late hershey 12/22 and allentown 12/23. each show i will have a guest with me who has never been to a show (i've been to 2) and i have already warned them that we will be staying for the m&g line! not a problem in hershey, since we're staying at the hershey lodge that night, but sunday is with my mom and she might put up a fuss, but since i'm driving :) she'll just have to deal :)

Ok.... so since I am not sitting in the "good seats" with probably the majority of the rest of you guys, just want to know how we are all going to get together after the show.... I have never been to Reading so I know nothing, really, about the venue. I will have my son with me and if you look thru my pictures he should be easy enough to recognize... plus, we will have a poster for the guys to sign (we have had one at the two previous shows, can't stop tradition now... plus I SERIOUSLY doubt they will be able to see our sign from the stage during the show.... so it is strictly for signing purposes... LOL) I am so excited about tomorrow night and the only downside will come while we are on our way home and I realize that we will have to wait probably at least 4 months to see them again. :(

Can't wait to meet all of my fellow Chasers and try to get this "Chaser Photo" done! See "all y'all" tomorrow!!! LOL

Elizabeth Ann.... thank you for the offer. I actually bought tickets almost 2 months ago when I got my taxes back and even though they aren't floor seats, I am just happy that my son and I are going. I hope you find someone to buy it.

Elizabeth Ann's picture

Hi mama2josh,
I have a ticket I am trying to sell because I can't go to the show. I know you said you wanted to take your son but this is on Floor 3, row BB (second row!!!) and includes the dinner package. I am only looking to sell it for what I paid. I'm bummed that I can't go but hope the ticket will be put to good use! Please let me know if you're interested asap!
Thanks,
Elizabeth

Wow.... we are only a week away from the Reading show and I am so unbelieveably psyched!!! It has been a LONG 5 months with only getting to see youtube videos and hear everyone else talk about how wonderful the shows are. I can't wait to also meet some of the Chasers I didn't get to meet at Harrah's or in Baltimore. I definitely think we should take a group pic... that would be fun. Let me know what you guys think... :) See ya next Friday!

So, as I said on the cruise countdown link... as of tonight there are only 49 more nights until the Reading show. And not only that, but it looks like the guy that I recently started dating might be purchasing the end of row ticket for our row and coming with my son and I to the show. Potential new Chaser... :) I told him about them when we first started talking and he checked out some videos and things online and he sounds excited about going to the Reading show and then also possibly the WolfTrap show in August. :D
See you guys there!!!

Oh, I never tought about looking at Randy's crowd pics! I have to go do that now! =]

mama2josh23's picture

Julie.... thanks for the heads up. I took a look at Randy's crowd pics from last year's Reading show and basically got a look at my seats. Even though I wish they were closer, there will be no one in front of us (in our section) and nothing blocking us so I am ok with that.

Kelli.... I know how you feel. I haven't gotten to see them since about a week and a half before you did and I am so ready for this show. :)

Can't wait for the Reading show!!! It'll be my first show since Caesar's in November...it'll finally end my SNC 5 month drought...lol. We are doing the dinner too! Can't wait to meet all the Chasers I haven't met yet who will be at this show!! Woo-hoo!! We're gonna have a blast!!

The Reading Eagle Theater is a sports arena, if that gives you an idea about your seats. By day, it's an ice hockey rink...lol

mama2josh23's picture

Yay!!!! Family Photo in the works... :)

I love the idea of a Chaser pic! Reading will be my 2nd show and at the first there were only 4 other Chasers. I waited towards the end of the M&G line to go through but since I was new I didn't even stay to get my photo with the guys. So I have a lot of picture taking to do in Reading, especially since I've met so many great Chasers since November here and on Twitter!

TraciP's picture

I like the idea of the Chaser pic too! This will be my first concert, and I'll be meeting you guys for the first time! And The Guys, too! lol

EileenR's picture

Chaser pic sounds like a great idea!

OMG.... I had the most horrible dream last night.... I dreamt that I went to buy my tickets for the Reading show and it was sold out and I couldn't go. Thank goodness when I woke up I remembered that I have already bought them and they are already printed and should be on their way to me soon.

Yarp24.... YAY!!! I am excited about our "Family Photo"... :)

yarp24's picture

I think it would be great if we got a "Family Photo" after the meet and greet. Mama2Josh23 I'm in! Great idea! :)

mama2josh23's picture

Ok Chasers.... so Dottie had actually asked me on my profile if I had gotten in on the "Group" Chaser picture in AC this summer and I told her that since I was new to the "Chaser" world, I didn't know about the group picture then... however, I would love to try to get a Group Chaser picture at the Reading show since there will be a bunch of us there. How does everyone else feel about it?

mama2josh23's picture

Eileen... bought my tickets today! Can't wait to go. Let me know about carpooling!

mama2josh23's picture

ok.... I am about 98% positive that this concert is my one splurge item from my taxes that I am allowing myself this year. I have checked out the venue from pictures and I am satisfied with how the seats look. So as soon as my taxes are deposited into my account, I will be purchasing seats for my son and I. I am so excited! Can't wait to see all you guys and of course "the guys"!!

Eileen... definitely keep me posted... no sense in both of us killing gas when you live 20 min from me.

EileenR's picture

Probly coming back that night. I'll let you know.

mama2josh23's picture

Thanks Eileen. I know you are going to the Reading Show... are you spending the night or coming back after the show. I was thinking that we could car pool if I decide to go and if you want. I don't mind driving.

EileenR's picture

Look at pix from the NYE show 12/31/2010 for pix of the venue.
