    Has anyone ever sat in the 300 section to see LOVE at the Mirage? The stage layout (if that's what it is) makes it hard to tell if there is a bad seat, how high, etc...

    I haven't but looking at the layout of the theater, I figured they wouldn't be too bad. But then again before myVegas, I was used to sitting in the upper decks.

    In my opinion, LOVE is best viewed from the mid-sections. Too high and you can't see the floor work real well and too close you miss the aerials and sideshows.

    This is a good point, there are a lot of things going on on the ground, and it's helpful to be up closer to see that. When I watched it, we were 2 rows behind what they considered the "golden circle". Excellent seats.

    Thanks for all the input.

    Hmmm... This is a tough one. As I mentioned in another thread, I really didn't enjoy "O" when I went years ago, but would like to take my wife to a good show. I do appreciate the Beatles, although not a rabid fan. Was guessing I'd enjoy the spectacle and creativity of it, but the next price level makes it a bit too high.

    I know she'd initially be most happy if I told her we were going to see LOVE as opposed to Absinthe, but guessing I'd like that show better (and it's cheaper).

    You can get Category C tickets for ~$100 each after taxes and fees right now on Sat. Sept. 7th for example. That's only three rows further back than I sat.

    You are getting ~50% off full price when looking at these tickets, right? (Promo valid until the end of the month.)

    And if you have tons of time before your trip...you could always grind myVegas like my g/f and I have. :evillaugh

    TIP: The cheapest category of Beatles Love includes the very last row of the main level. No, do not accept the obstructed view seats, but look around the shows throughout your trip and the last row in the 200 sections does count as the cheap seats. Best place to see the show to be honest!

    I sat in the center section in the last row of the main level and they were the $60/tickets and fantastic

    We were in one of the 30x sections our first time. Loved the show then. But, after 6 times, I would say step up one level if you can.

    I've seen it from section 304. It really wasn't bad, though we aren't having much in the way of long-distance vision issues yet. I did enjoy being able to see the stuff happening high up before I would have noticed it from further down.

    I can't remember what I booked for our Oct. trip, but I think it was a 30x section again. It was free, so I just went with it. I imagine we'll enjoy it, though I wouldn't mind moving up a section next time.

    300 seats

    I sat in 304 if I remember correctly, and was in the first row. I had a good view of everything. The usher up there felt these are the best seats in the house to have full viewing at all times. I enjoyed it but would like to sit lower sometime to compare.

    I've sat in the 200s and I've sat in the 2nd row. Much better from up high. You get to see everything, which is very important in this show. Maybe 300 is too high? the theater is pretty small, similar to Mystere

    The best seats are in the back of the 200 level. Section 200 is the focal point of the show.

    I've seen the show from section 106 -- too close. These were a free upgrade from section 306. I've also seen the show from the back of section 209 -- these were full price tickets.

    Close lets you see the costumes and details of the performers, but you miss some of the spectacle. This is especially true during times when there are drapes covering parts of the theatre.

    Every seat gives you something great, but if you can get seats in the middle to the back of the 200 sections, you will see the show at its best.

    We sat in a section 200

    Thread I did on LOVE in May

    We sat in Section 204, Row M, Seat 6. With the internet discount of 25% it was just 127.87 per seat.

    I don't think you can wrong with any seat in the 100 or 200 sections.

    Yes, our last trip to Vegas in June, we received free tickets as part of a SWA deal. 2 seats in the last row, they were great. For most Cique shows, I feel the further back the better. We no choice here, but you saw everything, plus as the acrobats glided out on their wires/ropes etc. they moved right by you at your level.
