I think the HP Pavillion website is only describing the "typical" set up. They say here http://www.hppsj.com/building_informati ... mation.asp that typically only the first three rows in the floor sections are set up to be continuous (i.e. so that there are no breaks in a row from one side of the floor area to the other). The photos also show only the first three rows as being continuous, but again these images are only meant to be typical of an end stage concert.

The confusion seems to stem from the fact that they are not actually using the typical setup for the Leonard Cohen concert. If you look at the schedule of events link at http://www.hppsj.com/seating_maps/Seati ... ART_ID=283, you will find a unique seating chart for the show. Unfortunately, they do not label specific seat numbers, but it is clear that at least the first 5 or 6 rows are continuous. I also remember that when I was first checking out the Ticketmaster site for tickets, they offered me a choice of tickets that, based on their seat numbers, meant that more than the first three rows had to be continuous. Again from the HP Pavillion website link above, they say that each Floor section has 14 seats, when the row is not continuous. (There will obviously be additional seats in the continuous rows.) Thus,one would expect that Floor 1 and Floor 2 join up in the continuous rows at approximately seat #16 for Floor 1 tickets and seat #1 for Floor 2 tickets. I think the Floor 2 tickets are numbered as high as about seat #18, where they meet up with seat #1 in the Floor 3 section. These numbers may not be precisely accurate, but based on the seating maps they must be reasonably close to the actual layout.

I guess I'll have to sit on 2 seats in San Jose. Three would be even better, because then I had the chance to experience the show in a horizontal position... :lol:

Susan K - sitting FL 1, row 2, seat 15

Haven't had time to look at all the messages but the tickets say NO CAMERAS - is this being enforced? To sit that close and not be able to take photos is going to be hard! ;-)

Yes I agree Susan - those of us who can't make it would love to see all photos since we can't be there..

Hello everyone,

After all these years I've finally logged in. Thank you, Jarkko! I've been a serious fan since the early 80's and had the opportunity to attend the 1988 show in Berkeley, CA.; of course, it was a spectacularly thrilling event. The Oakand concert last April left the feeling that 'this is as good as anything could possibly get', still there's no doubt being in San Jose will bring about the same emotion. I've seen a number of your previous posts and look forward to being around so many true admirers. It would be such a pleasure to say hello, particularly as we'll be neighbors!

Very best wishes,
Bob FLR 1; Row 3; Seat 12
