Hey all!

I have no idea how active this community is now.. But I just found it, and I thought it looked nice, so I'll try throwing in a few questions anyway.

I am currently in the process of gathering as many concert tickets as humanly possible for while I am in Japan this semester, studying at univ. in Kyoto. I am not very familiar with the venues in Kyoto or Osaka though and now, while looking at tickets for Nightmare at Namba Hatch, I wonder if I should get tickets for 1st or 2nd floor? Does anyone who has been there have any comments on layout and such?

Secondly, I'm rather sad that both of SID's shows in Osaka in June has already sold out... Does anyone, by chance, have any idea how I might be able to get my hands on a few tickets for one of them?

Thanks!

- Aki

1st floor is the hall, where the stage is, and 2nd floor is the balcony. Balcony will be seated, hall probably isn't. It depends on what you would rather have and the website has the layout and photos of inside the venue - http://www.namba-hatch.com/inform.html Always check the venue websites as they're very good at displaying layout information.

When lives are sold out you have two options really. The first is auctions (usually Yahoo and usually overpriced) and the second is to take your chances by going to the venue early and hoping some fans have extras they're trying to sell. Often fans will have signs saying they're selling tickets, or you can make a sign to say you want to buy them. Generally, they sell them for what the ticket is worth and don't inflate the price (or at least, the fans I've bought from have always been good!), it's just a gamble.

Aaah, now I feel silly for not checking the website xD But thank you!

And I may as well just go to Osaka that day then... if nothing, I can spend the money at book off or something xD ... But really, I'd be willing to pay quite a bit more than what the tickets are worth... i'ts SID after all xD

Again, thank you a lot! ^^

Go for the 1st floor! its all standing and you will usually have a lot of mobility to get up front if you like. Namba Hatch is good because it is very wide, so its easier to get a good vantage point no matter where you are.

Also, if you have a mixi account, you can check the message boards for SID's page for people selling tickets! They won't rip you off because it's fan to fan.. usually.
