    I have never been in this venue, but last minute Christmas trip planned and I'd like to go to see Motley Crue. I've read that even nosebleed sections are good, but am wondering....My options are for Section 214, pretty far backnear the middle of the row....Section 210 second row 7 seats in,or Section 212 about 4 rows back near the right aisle. Which will give me the better view? I realize all the sections are far and away, but would love some input from those who have been there :) Thanks in advance 804b36ab-63b7-4850-ba32-73090400e70c.jpg

    Sec 210 2nd row will give you the best angle to the stage.

    I'd also consider what their stage setup is going to be like, if that's available information. For example, I saw U2 on the Innocence & Experience tour here in New York, and despite being towards the center and in a very pricey suite, it wasn't all that great because their stage was better-suited to viewing from the side.

    Have been there twice. Seats were up and opposite corner from stage. Sound was good and big screens made it ok. May want to leave before encore ends. Getting out of there is a mess. Everyone goes into the same hallway which of course leads back to the casino. Maybe that has changed since it has been four years since we last saw a concert there.

    not true , tons of exits out, some lead to casino some to . parking garage some to the outside so u can go in the front of the mgm., no big deal getting out they funnel you out from differnt doors.
    im there all the time

    also tommy lee has his drum kit go thru the middle of the venue like a roller coaster for his drum solo, you can google it.

    I appreciate all the input! I've been to many Crue concerts, including this farewell tour when it first started, but this will be the final one for me. I just got back from a trip last Tuesday. Had a decent win, so decided to treat myself for Christmas and New Years. I am very short, so wanted to get the best possible view. Everyone usually stands during a concert LOL

    Just in case you didn't already get tickets, $20 (+fees :grrr:) offer from Ticketmaster today. Good for several artists, but specifically this Motley Crue show in Vegas http://www.ticketmaster.com/ticketdeals/cyberweek. Also, for Demi Lovato/Nick Jonas (parents, ask your kids) in Vegas next August.
     
    Only 2nd trip for year :(
