If you've been following along here for any period of time, or you happen to have the misfortune of actually knowing me, then you may have picked up that I'm a big fan of all things Hard Rock. Cafes, hotels, casinos...I love them all for reasons still unknown. So when my wife suggested that we see her favorite band - The Script - in concert at Hard Rock Live in Orlando, I was more than happy to oblige the request.
The tables are assigned on a first come first serve basis, and can only be booked by calling the Hard Rock Live box office, as opposed to via Ticketmaster. Since I watched with a great deal of jealousy the people at these tables on our last visit, I made sure to be on the phone with Hard Rock the minute tickets were available. We were assigned table "E" which was along the balcony railing, and had a perfect, unobstructed view of the stage.
Naturally, the show was fantastic, and I'm quite confident that the table played a small role in what was an awesome night. Looking back on the evening, I still can't believe that Hard Rock does not charge a premium or some sort of service charge for these seats. I probably should not put this in writing and give them any ideas, but I would gladly have paid twice what we did for the experience. It is also pretty safe to say that seeing a concert from my own private table has probably ruined me for future shows altogether.
Correction: Hard Rock Live has informed me that there is in fact a small premium for table seating. For our show it was $5 per ticket over general admission cost. Now, can someone hand me a towel to wipe this egg off my face...
