Zach, you are preaching to the choir - we have been saying that exact thing for 6 years now! Hate that damn little stage! 🤬
Paul likes it, which is why it is still around. I think he likes being up high and being able to look out over the entire audience from that vantage point.
I have no problems with the stage height. It's the extra staging, which takes up AT LEAST a couple rows of potential floor seats. Those in the front row shouldn't be so far away from Paul. I had front row back in 2012, and it was great. I've seen some recent videos where it looks like some people are so far away, and they are in the first few rows.
I have front row tickets for when he comes to Fort Wayne. It is a smaller venue than his normal stadium, so I'm hoping that they do away with that smaller extra stage. I want to be as close as possible.
That little extra stage/platform is what I was talking about. Paul obviously must like that part of the show when he rises high above the audience and can see everyone. They must have decided it was easier to have that platform placed in front of the main stage rather than have it rise from the middle of the stage.
Don't expect that it will be removed for Fort Wayne. It's been at every indoor arena show since it first appeared; even in the smaller arenas. I agree that it does take up more room in front of the stage and pushes the audience back a bit. But front row is still great and you will still be close, with no one else in front of you to block your view!
