    Just out of curiosity- is anyone coming from around 800 N Michigan Ave? maybe at least some of us could meet at the coffee house at the Tribune/ WGN courtyard on Michigan Ave & walk together? Who lives around there by me btw?

      The sound and volume were great. A terrific experience !

  • Scott

    Ok I have a seat up front. Great view and show! Better seat than I can afford at the lyric !

    September 6

    • Steve

      Hey Scott, That means you don't have to go to Lyric at all this year !

      September 6

  • Vicki

    Car overheated! Enjoy the concert and fireworks !

    I should be coming (for a change - Ghost Organizer Lives!), and I am happy to coordinate a group of "standers" if seating is hard to come by for such a large number.

      Alas, it was not to be. Next time!

      September 6

  • Matthew I.

    Unfortunately, I gt pulled away, so I will have to remind Ghost Organizer for a little while longer. Enjoy!

    Hi Everyone ! Meet Up lists me as co-organizer, but I am not. I signed up as a participant. In any case, it looks like we need a good location to meet. HERE IS THE PLAN: If you are meeting Shelldon, go to the front seating area and get there early ! For the rest of us, meet at the far back of the Pavilion lawn at about 6 pm or so. I added the graphic of the Pritzker Pavilion above for guidance. I am hoping the Lyric provides live video along with the great sound, but no guarantees. We may move forward, space permitting. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket to sit on. I do not have a table. If you want to bring a snack or beverage to share (soda, beer and wine are all allowed), bring a table or tarp. The weather looks great. Its going to be 60-70, clear and a bit windy so bring a layer or two for comfort. See you tonight ! Steve

      All the way iback n the center one row in. Send a message.

    • Rohit

      No luck. Going back to the front.

      September 6

  • Shelldon A.

    If history is any indicator, the place will be packed. Those wanting to sit in the seating bowl will need to arrive and stand in line at least 90 minutes beforehand. I"ll be arriving early and will save a few seats if anyone is interested. Send me an email and we can arrange how to meet.

      Could not find anyone either. Just took a seat center back. There are individual seats scattered around. Maybe we could meet at intermission last row center.

      September 6

    • Rohit

      Still can't find anyone!

      September 6

  • Scott

    What row?

    September 6

  • Jia L.

    The bad thing is the timing may be conflicting with Venetian night boat parade. The good thing is later we can pay to watch the full opera in the theatre.

  • Gail S.

    I plan to bring my own lawn chair for this event. Is there going to be a group of people on the lawn towards the back of the park like other concerts?

    How will we find each other?

    September 4

  • Kon

    When you find the seats. Please post the row and section number so members of our group will be able to find our claim seats if anyone has a smart phone. It is just a though!

    Sheldon, I am going to be there, try earlier, I would like to have a seat, if possible, or I may squeeze somewhere .
    thanks

  • Shelldon A.

    With Meetups change in communications from emails to messaging, I'm uncertain if my early responses were received. For those of you who would like me to save a seat please send an email to [masked]. By so doing I'll then be able to tell you, without the whole world knowing, directly how to locate me at the concert. Thanks.

      would you like to borrow my red umbrella?

    I just saw this posted: "On the evening of September 6, 2014 we will be celebrating Venetian Night along with Navy Pier!" plan for great fireworks after the concert!

      Hi lory, do you know where do we meet? Last time, i did not know the exact spot the meet up group were supposed to meet, and enjoyed the music alone.

      September 3

    • Lori B.

      Hi Grace- Steve & Shelldon do a great job @ millennium park reserving seats- please message Shelldon Arthur for a spot. I get there too late because of work & usually stand alone by the wall!

      September 3

  • Stefan

    Hi, I just joined the group. I'd like to meet some people at the concert. Are there any more seats available? If not, I'm a big fan of the lawn too!

  • Timothy

    Never seen opera live before... This seems like the perfect opportunity!

    September 1

  • Barb

    Shelldon, it seems you may be saving a row! I always prefer a seat but will bring my portable chair, just in case.

    August 28

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
