      Hi Nela, thanks for helping on the tickets, and I wrote you a reply below that I found a ticket, and went. I hope I can def. meet this concert group at the next show. What a greant show yest, and wish I had this planned earlier!! Hope you were able to help Angela in getting her a ticket and you enjoyed the bands!! Cheers:)

    Hey guys! Amy and Angela, if you don't have a ticket I have them for you, I also have a 3rd one, so let's do this, I have 3 tickets, I'm going by myself and I was lucky enough to win twice, so I'm giving the other 3 but only one to each person, I think that's fair.. so Amy and Angela you have priority, if you don't contact me the tickets will go to the first 3 to contact me, text me at[masked] and let's meet up.. ;)

    September 29, 2012

    • Nela

      Oh I hope I can make it before 3:30!! I still have the tickets so sorry Amy and Angela, now the tickets are for the first 3 to text me..

      September 29, 2012

    • Amy

      Oh no....I'm so sorry I missed this post, until now. I got a ticket, last minute at 3pm, from a friend, who had an extra & I paid $75. I went but I didn't have any access to my cell or computer to tell anyone on meet up! Sorry, but that was an Awesome show w/ The Black Keys & FF. I hope, I can join you all at the next show together & meet in person. Too bad, that I've found this NYC concert group so late, a day before the global festival & rushed in asking for help on tickets!Thanks 4 followingup!

    • Jonathan

      Sure! I should be there before 4pm. My number is 6463161354. Give me a shout once you're there. Oh and feel free to bring those extra tickets along with you..because you never know. They might come in handy.

  • jonathan

    I wonder if the rooftop garden of the Metropolitan Museum has a good vantage point ? It should be open until 8.

    September 29, 2012

  • Amy

    Hi Everyone, I still can't get a ticket. I know it's getting late and I emailed "[masked]" for help on still entering to win free tickets. I'm waiting for some feedback from them. Any other ideas? Also, I saw it's sold out now too, VIP etc... when I went to the site. Thanks for any advice and hope I can still get a chance to go!!

    September 28, 2012

    • Amy

      Hi Angela, Still no luck as of now.....I wish I got started earlier, buying tickets!! Sux:( I'm thinking of trying to listen to the concert, from the outside of the venue, but in the park, yet I'm not sure if that would be any fun? Oh man, I love Neil Young & Foo Fighters. It'll probably come down to watching it live on TV or something, if it does rain alot and it's cold and not being inside the show. Thanks Angela and keep you posted!

      September 29, 2012

    • Nela

      Hey girls, read my post!

      September 29, 2012

  • nik

    So that's 72nd on 5th?

    September 28, 2012

  • nik

    72nd it is

    September 28, 2012

    • jonathan

      Both 72nd St entrances will be very crowded. Why don't you specify a nearby spot for people to meet, along with some indication of how to recognize you.

      September 28, 2012

    • Jonathan

      If I remember from past events, entrance is at 72nd(non-VIP) and from there we will have to walk all the way to the great lawn which stretches from 79th to 85th. I guess we can all wait for others just beyond the entrance where we present the tickets? Just a thought. I say we meetup at 3:30 and head to the great lawn asap to get a good spot.

      September 28, 2012

  • Russell

    Note: NONE of the sections are seated to my knowledge. Given weather I would suggest bringing a plastic dropcloth, tablecloth, or shower curtain if you're planning on sitting on the ground and then putting a towel or whatever over it.

    September 28, 2012

  • nik

    I haven't a clue where the others are planning to meetup.

    September 28, 2012

  • Amy

    I didn't luck out with the lottery, so I bought the Living Social VIP $99 (originally $189.50) Section, which has different entry, that starts at 2pm from 81st & Central Park West. It's general admission for this area, as well, so 1st come get closer seats. I would like to get there early...are any of the group, that also have these section's tickets, meeting earlier? This is going to be such an exciting event and experience in Central Park! I am looking forward to my 1st event with NY Concert Meetup :)

    September 28, 2012

    • Russell

      I did VIP as well, but probably won't be getting there until 4 pm or so.

      September 28, 2012

  • Amy

    0% chance of rain tomorrow!

    September 28, 2012

  • jonathan

    81st St maybe good for VIP ticket holders. But, non-VIP instructions say to access the park at 72nd St. It may be necessary to make a separate non-VIP meetup plan.

    September 28, 2012

    • Amy

      I would like to arrive around 2pm if anyone else does with the VIP entry on 81st. Aside from getting seats close up, the crowd and the energy will make the time fly and I want to experience as much as possible :)

      September 28, 2012

  • nik

    81st n 5th avenue

    September 28, 2012

  • nik

    Since its at 81st let's meet there on 5th ave between 330 and 4. I just hope
    tomorrow's nice.

    September 27, 2012

  • nik

    Hello folks, got stuck with another tic does anyone need.

    September 26, 2012

    • Jonathan

      September 26, 2012

    • Susan

      If it's not taken, I'd be interested.

      September 18, 2012

  • Abhi

    Those who have won tickets so far - anyone has extra and would like a company?

    September 16, 2012

  • Russell

    FYI Being told the VIP level ticket I got is being offered on livingsocial.com for $99--that's a deal.

    September 15, 2012

  • Nela

    Yay! I won a couple of tickets!!
