I had front row center in stockholm 2011, it was the regular pre-sale. it was the very very best seat of the whole venue.
Must've felt like you won the lottery!!! How did you like being up there for "Live and Let Die"? Were the fireworks right on top of you? Were you blinded by the light? I think I would've brought my sunglasses for that song, lol!
I was front row a couple years ago right next to the pyro pot directly under Rusty. YES it was super hot and YES it was super LOUD. Even hunched down with my ears covered bc I knew it was coming it was intense. excellent!
The flame pots are very, very HOT (as in temperature), and bright, and the explosions are very loud, and if there are sparklers, be careful not to look up, as you can easily get a cinder in the eye. I've seen Paul's head of security go through the pit just before the song starts to move all the venue security people out of there. I always just duck if I'm that close. And as to people in the front row middle, at the US shows, there are definitely some exceptions but it seems it's usually young and attractive people who get picked (however that happens) to be in those seats. Some of the young guys and girls front row center in Vancouver looked like models but they were all dancing and having a great time, and Paul gave them a lot of attention during the show.
Wow! This show may even top Led Zeppelin's and The Who's concerts back in the seventies! (yes, I'm in my fifties). Lol, Take note 1st row people, DUCK and COVER! I'll know if they're models or Paul fans just by if they are surprised when the pyro explosions start up, lol! We'll find out.......I'll let you know after the show.
