I'll be traveling down from near the Canadian border for this show.  Anyone know how long a drive it is from the twin cities to Ames?

anyone ever see a concert at this venue?  It looks like its smaller, perhaps more intimate.  How does it compare to Target Center for concerts?  I am 90% sure I am going to take the trip down to Iowa and hit both shows,  I just need to pick between this venue and the target center one which I am willing to splurge on a scalper if I am unable to score premium reserved seats on my own. I want to spend more on the better venue.

I believe the Target Center is the bigger venue

I found some website that says if you don't have people behind the stage, the arena holds just over 10,000 for cocnerts. If they have people behind the stage its almost 15,000 then.

Not really anything groundbreaking, but here's a setup of the venue for concerts.
Just a typical basketball arena, probably not too bad of seat anywhere in the house.

Yeah, seems like a solid venue, not as big as target center which is cool.  Front row or bust!

It's in my back yard, saw my first GNR show there back in 88.....Can't wait to go.? Ticket sales won't be brisk for this one, but walk-up sales will be strong given that it's on-campus in a college town and on a Friday night.

*edit* for those wondering about the venue, the acoutsics tend to suck further back, but as far as parking and ease out of the arena it is aweseome.  Concessions are decent, and campustown will be fun after the show.

I'm gonna try and make it to this show as well.? My boss' hometown is Ames, and he says it's about a two hour drive either way.

He also says it should be a better venue than the Target Center.

Just got 2 tix in section 131, Row 10. 

The ticketmaster site has now moved up the sale to Friday instead of Saturday.  Not that it matters cause you can go to the official site right now and order.

I almost bought similar tickets today for Iowa.  I got 5th row for minneapolis today.  For shits I am going to wait and see what kind of lower level reserved seats ticketmaster might have.  If they don't have anything better than 10th row, then hopefully I can still get similar tickets to the ones that are available now.  I doubt Iowa will be that hot of a ticket so there could be a chance.  It seems like only certain sections are available on the the GNR website.

Since Hilton Coliseum is on the ISU campus, will they sell alcohol at this event?

Why wouldn't they?  Is ISU a dry campus?  I really don't think it is.
