NYC Concert Experience

Select your seats carefully

Before you purchase seats, check out the venue map online.
Be honest with yourself about your seat preferences and price limit. Some people love general admission floor tickets, but they aren’t for everyone. If it’s important to you to have seats right in the center, on the aisle, or near the restrooms, pay attention to these factors on the seating map.

Arrive early, particularly for general admission shows

You never know when you’ll run into issues with parking, there will be a traffic jam, or the entrance lines will belong. Arriving early will give you plenty of time to park, use the restroom, get a drink, and catch the opening band. It’s especially important to arrive early for a general admission show if you want to get a spot close to the stage.

Dress appropriately and comfortably.

Nothing ruins a night out at a concert faster than uncomfortable shoes or a skimpy outfit not appropriate for the freezing temperatures. For outdoor concerts, the temperature may vary significantly from the predicted forecast or may drop off suddenly as the sunsets. For indoor concerts, the air-conditioning may be freezing when you arrive, but you’ll find yourself sweating twenty minutes into the set. Wear comfortable shoes and dress in layers, so you can take off or add a layer as needed throughout the night.

Keep your personal belongings to a minimum.

The only items you need to bring to a concert are your phone, ticket, phone charger, cash, and car keys. If you’re going to an outdoor concert during the day, bring your sunglasses as well. Everything else should stay at home.
Ditch the big purse or bag and keep your belongings in your pockets or a small cross-body bag.

Ticket Information

When your favorite band comes to NYC, you want to be right there in the front row. The problem is thousands of other fans have the same idea. Scoring those primo seats can be a real challenge, especially if you do not have unlimited funds to spend.

Before you purchase seats, check out the venue map online.

Be honest with yourself about your seat preferences and price limit. Some people love general admission floor tickets, but they aren’t for everyone. If it’s important to you to have seats right in the center, on the aisle, or near the restrooms, pay attention to these factors on the seating map.

There are several options:

  • Buy early. Many concerts offer “early bird” pricing if you buy well in advance. These discounts can be anywhere from 25%-50% off full price.

  • Don’t sit upfront. Do you really need those front-row seats?
    Sit in the back, save money, and hear the same show the people up front are hearing.

  • Go to smaller shows. There are a lot of good shows in small venues, which typically have low ticket prices (if any).

  • Volunteer. Contact the band you want to see (or, better yet, their tour manager – if you can find contact information) and ask if you can earn a free ticket by volunteering to promote the show or work the band’s merchandise table.

  • Get a job at a venue. Again, don’t expect to see the whole show, but working at the venue will at least let you hear the music.

  • Become a writer and earn press credentials. This takes time, as you need to build up a body of work instead of just slapping up a blog and proclaiming you’re a music critic, but it does pay off in the long run.
