Posted by Anonymous | March 27, 2007 2:59 AM

Price makes me 2nd think whether I'm going or not.

August 9th is a Thursday, and you will not regret spending the $47.50 + fees.

Posted by Anonymous | March 27, 2007 7:20 AM

damn, the price is a little steep. And why does every show have to go on sale this weekend (daft punk, morrissey, arcade fire, ricky gervais)?

Posted by rod | March 27, 2007 7:44 AM

My question is are there going to be seperate field and pavillion seats?

Posted by Supafly | March 27, 2007 8:03 AM

i can assure you you dont want to be sitting.

Posted by sam | March 27, 2007 9:06 AM

What Ricky Gervais is going on sale??

Posted by B | March 27, 2007 9:13 AM

he's playing the theatre at madison square garden, as part of the High Line Festival, on may 19th i think. I'm just praying that i can put both arcade fire and gervais tickets on the same "shopping cart" on ticketbastard.

and bjork and AIR

expensive week for tix

And Rage/Wu Tang. That's a real pricey one.

Posted by Drugs Delaney | March 27, 2007 9:47 AM

Are Sebastian and Kavinsky DJs or more acts? Don't think I want to sit thru 4 difference bands.

Posted by Anonymous | March 27, 2007 10:30 AM

Morrissey tickets don't go on sale this weekend, Rod. MSG and PNC Onsale 10 a.m., April 23.

Posted by hi | March 27, 2007 10:47 AM

sit? you should be dancing.

Posted by Anonymous | March 27, 2007 10:53 AM

Morrissey tickets don't go on sale until the end of April. It hasn't been announced yet, but only CA shows are going on sale this saturday

Posted by L | March 27, 2007 11:07 AM

Are they really going to make people sit in the stands when they've got a huge field just right there? Especially for a Daft Punk show. That's pretty horrible planning from both the band and the venue.

Posted by Ricky | March 27, 2007 11:09 AM

Sebastion and Kavinsky are DJ's on the Ed Banger record label

Posted by Supafly | March 27, 2007 11:10 AM

it probably won't be daft punk anyway. just two randoms in costumes.

enjoy the show.

Bowery Presents is gonna make some serious money here

Posted by Eduardo | March 27, 2007 11:22 AM

I doubt that

It's $3 Million for Daft Punk to Play at Your House. I use to think Radiohead had the best Light Show until I saw Daft Punk at Coachella. I can imagine it cost every penny. They destroyed so much at the festival, every one had to prefix their conversations as, "So besides Daft Punk, did you see any one else amazing." The duo broke down all the riffs and hooks of all their albums and found a common continuous thread to weave into an epic dance party. Life Changing.

Posted by Matt | March 27, 2007 11:43 AM

the next morning, even ted leo was strumming 'one more time.' daft punk was amazing at coachella!

Posted by leah | March 27, 2007 12:42 PM

Worth it, believe me. We've been running a weekly feature on Friday's documenting the Coachella show. Very HQ MP3s, check it out.

Posted by Sebastian | March 27, 2007 1:08 PM

expensive. but some things in life are worth it.

Posted by rebirth machine | March 28, 2007 11:44 AM

i was one of the like 5 people who went to across the narrows a year or so back. keyspan is massive. they tried to sell tickets in the stands but that like the event failed. everyone stayed in the field. i don't know if that'll fly this time around but the as a venue it's pretty solid.

Any word about the presale?

Posted by Les | March 28, 2007 12:19 PM

I have a recording of that Daft Punk Coachella set and is killer killer good. And Bjork at Keyspan was amazing. This Daft Punk show is going to be one of the best of the summer, been wanting to see them forever! The seats at Keyspan are total bunk though. You definitely have to have GA on the field.

Posted by trrricky | March 28, 2007 1:41 PM

I've never been to Keyspan Park, but given:

1. others' comments regarding the size of the field, its cavernousness and difficulty in selling out in the past; and
2. the fact that, unlike every other Daft Punk date, there is no presale (or, with about 22 hours to go, not yet a presale) for the Daft Punk show at Keyspan.

It could be that the entire stadium will be general admission? Or that at least they're not planning to sell many seated tix?

or
3. that they're not planning on selling 7,500 + X # of field tickets for $60 to a electronica band in Coney Island on a Thursday.

then there's wikipedia:
"In the ballpark's short history, a number of concerts have taken place. Concerts at KeySpan Park have been general admission, with ticketholders only allowed on the field or in the stadium, without the ability to switch sections. Fans who have tried to pass security and move between the field and stadium have been removed from the concert."

Posted by quarterempty | March 30, 2007 1:46 PM

wikipedia lies. i went to across the narrows and at that one you could move freely between the seats and the field as you pleased. maybe its been different at other shows...

well that was easy

FECK, that's real pricy

Posted by Nicholas Routzen | April 13, 2007 11:01 AM

Holy Jebus, I cannot BELIEVE you guys are whinging about the price of this.
I'm going to the Hyde Park date in London, where the tickets cost the equivalent of $90!!!

Posted by Sean | April 19, 2007 11:38 AM

$45 is not expensive for daft punk, christ. the poor quality videos of them at coachella give me goosebumps.

Anybody snuck from the bowl to the field at Keyspan? I went there once and was in the bowl and everyone around me left. I assume you can sneak to the field. It was filled for Bjork.

Posted by merf | June 5, 2007 4:10 PM

NAh thats what sucks about Keyspan other than the sound.
If you are in the field you can easily go sit in the bowl seats. BUt if your tickets are reserved seats you cannot go down to the field.

Posted by Anonymous | June 5, 2007 4:41 PM

I seriously doubt it is that hard to get onto the field. Anyone wanna trade ticket stubs once we're in?

Posted by Anonymous | June 5, 2007 5:04 PM

There has to be some way to sneak in. Bowl sucks because of that net. Although regardless even if I'm stuck in the stands it will be a good time. It would be nice to know it's possible to get into the field. I bet it won't even be filled.

Posted by merf | June 5, 2007 6:03 PM

I just bought my tickets and did not realize that they were the bowl tickets. Is it still worth going if I'm not in the field?

I try to find tickets for daft punk.
Do anyone re sells tickets?/

Posted by clement | July 26, 2007 5:03 PM

The price of tickets are $150-250 now, from all the leagal ticket scalpers ..I would say 47.50 + fees was a bargain. Does anyone have any resonble priced tickets for sale? Do you think any will befor sale outside the nite of the show?

Posted by jay | August 6, 2007 3:25 AM

Field seats are $215 or 250 depending on the gate, Does anyone have any idea why...
If your on the field it should be the same price no matter what gate you enter....
They sold out for $50 a ticket, I should have bought 20 tickets.. is it worth paying 4x that to go?Its kind of high, speaking of which can you smoke there? How is security?
Do you want to go Dave? Its your call.

Posted by will | August 6, 2007 4:32 AM

Just talked to the Keyspan box office. They said that if you have a "Bowl" ticket you can sit anywhere in the stands, first come, first serve, it doesn't matter whether your ticket says "GA1" or "GA6" or "GA9" or whatever. If you have a "Field" ticket, you can be anywhere on the "floor" (the field) first come first serve. But he said you can't wander between the two. I didn't ask how difficult it was to enforce this. Also, there is pretty much no protection from the rain, which is forecast for Thursday night. I'm hoping for the best!

Posted by nyctc7 | August 8, 2007 11:51 AM

why didn't you ask set times??!??!

(can you call again? please? =)

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2007 11:54 AM

When I saw Bjork @ Keyspan in 2002 I bribed one of the guards at the field level with $3 to let me and my friend through. It was all I had. I handed it to him and we ran.

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2007 12:00 PM
