I called all day yesterday trying to get tickets but the line was busy for hours, finally my wife got through and got us tickets in section 14 (upper bowl).   I recommend asking for "horseshoe seats" as they are cushoned seats, very comfy and are in the first 3 rows of the upper bowl, so they are in the lower price tier and still have a great view.   The box office number is 1-800-267-2800.  Unfortunetly this place doesn't sell tickets online like every other venue on the planet.  Huh

I hear they are opening the box office today (Sunday) from 12-4 to try to sell the rest of the tickets.  This is a great venue to watch a show, there are no bad seats, good acoustics, and holds about 8000 people.  I've seen several shows here - Aerosmith, Supertramp, Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden.

I've been a GnR fan since my childhood but will be my first time seeing them live!!! Cheesy

Yup, if your town didn't have a stadium that could hold more than 30,000 people then GnR wasn't going to make it there.  I'm glad bands are going back to the smaller arenas, even if the price of tickets has tripled in the last 10 years or so.

Just got back from the box office. Picked up tickets in section 13 (padded seats ok) and the lady at the booth said that all the GA floor and lower bowl were gone. Not bad for phone and box office sales only.

I went to the Suicide Girls website and they skipped the Saint John date on there.
Then I went over to Sebastian Bach's website, and I knew he wasn't doing Halifax, but the Saint John date isn't there either.
Maybe because this show was added late it didn't get put up there... but I'm wondering if we're getting an opening act? Huh

Heads up - Harbour Station is giving away a free ticket to every ticket you bought. They are doing this just to get asses in seats - sales are SOFT for this show.

I was just about to post the same thing.  You can buy one and get one free, or take the tickets you already bought to the box office and get free ones.

Does anybody know if they will have folding chairs on the floor? They have in the past for other rock shows. I hope to God not.

I got my free tickets today, seemed like there was a lot of upper bowl left. Kind of disappointing, considering our friends in Halifax sold out so fast. A lot of people in Saint John bought tickets for the Halifax and Quebec City shows, before the Saint John date was announced, which I think cost some sales.

Amazing show, GN'R was so tight and Axl sounded great, no complaints about any of the acts. We got lucky and had 3 encores (Chinese Democracy, Madagascar and Paradise City). I had great time, front row both here (SJ) and in Halifax. The only difference was in Saint John they served alcohol. It may have been the alcohol but the Saint John crowd seemed way louder than Halifax. Can't wait to see them again.

Hired guns, wild roses spice up GNR concert

Jeff Ducharme
Telegraph-Journal
As published on page C1 on November 23, 2006

SAINT JOHN - It may have been Paradise City for some, but the Saint John Police Force may think that Tuesday's Guns N' Roses concert was paradise lost.

Five concert goers who took the rock 'n' roll lifestyle a little too seriously found themselves busted by police - three for intoxication, one for drinking underage and one for assaulting a Saint John Ambulance attendant who had rushed to the 24-year-old woman's aid after she fell in a drunken stupor.

Sgt. Pat Bonner said police are always concerned when a concert comes to town, regardless of a band's reputation.

"That's our concern, public safety," said Bonner. "Safety for the people at the concert and those performing."

While there were 6,000 people at Harbour Station, promoters had to scramble, selling tickets two-for-one in the final moments before the show.

The six-hour concert had three opening acts, but it was the Suicide Girls who raised eyebrows. The scantily clad women did a burlesque show that involved little clothing and a lot of shaking.

The tickets and posters in Harbour Station were all clearly marked warning of the show's adult content.

Michael Caddell, general manager of Harbour Station, said they had a plan in place for ticket holders who might have found the Suicide Girls a little too much to take.

"No provincial laws were broken. There's 6,000 people that come through the doors, we're not going to keep them all happy."

While he's received no complaints, he said if a ticket holder had been upset over the adult content, he would have gladly refunded the cost of the ticket or the person could have stepped outside until the bumping and grinding was over.

Caddell said they had an army of police and security in place to ensure things didn't get out of hand - seven police officers, 35 security guards, six bouncers for the band and 60 ushers and doormen.

"Although it was loud and late, it was one of the best behaved crowds we've had."

After hosting such bad boy rockers as Mötley Cr?e and Iron Maiden, Caddell said his staff understands the security needs of such a concert.

The rider, what the band requires as far as food and perks, was 10 pages long.

"They had breakfast, lunch and dinner here and special meals were prepared for special people and they were very impressed with our food."

But it was a group of employees at New System Laundry that got the biggest surprise when a non-descript duffle bag was dropped off that had "please dry clean" scrawled on a piece of duct tape.

The clothes inside belonged to frontman Axle Rose. Kathy McHugh of New System Laundry said it caused quite a stir among her female staff members.

"They wanted to smell the clothes before they went in (the machines) and when they came out," said McHugh. "Whatever turns your crank."

McHugh wasn't sure what to make about the fuss.

Two of the people arrested were sitting right in front of me - drunk out of their minds.... they were an older couple in their late 40s, doing lines of cocaine and drinking straight rum while there were a couple of 14 year old kids sitting next to them (their father alerted the cops and I enjoyed watching them get throughly searched while I was waiting in line for a beer hihi)

Yeah, I thought the Halifax show was awesome. You're lucky that alcohol was served there..if it was served in Halifax then it deffinetly would have been a wild night lol...yeah if they come back to the Maritimes I will be going for sure!
