Want the Best Seats in the House? - Learn Where You Can Purchase Them

Your days are filled with hard work and never-ending responsibility. Wouldn't it be nice to take a few hours off and have a little fun by attending that "must see" game or concert? Whether you're bringing family, friends, or even business associates, you want nothing more than a memorable occasion. So securing the right seats is essential. After all, who enjoys being perched in the rafters, watching the event unfold via Jumbotron?

If you want to have a great live-venue experience, you need to be seated close to the action. Close enough to potentially shake the hand of your favorite recording artist. Close enough to have a player toss you the ball he just caught. So close, the comedian actually makes a joke about you!

That said, trying to purchase tickets can be a traumatic experience. Chances are you, or someone you know, has stood in line for hours only to walk away with lackluster results.

With the advent of the Internet, a whole new twist has been added. How many times have you sat at your computer at 9:58 on a Saturday morning, credit card in hand and trigger finger ready? Just as you click the "order tickets now" button, your seats pop up and to your chagrin, you landed the 24th row in section 451. What the heck happened? Technology has made it possible for 20,000 seats to sell out in a matter of seconds. Now, you may as well buy the live record, along with a t-shirt from Tower Records, and tell everyone you were there.

Thankfully, there is a solution to this problem. There are two very good Internet sources to choose from today which will greatly improve your chances at acquiring desirable tickets. One is the ever-present eBayŽ, and the other is ticket brokers.

If it's the "up close and personal" experience you're looking for, there is no better source than a ticket broker. There are many online brokers to choose from and finding them is as simple as conducting a Google search. Although ticket brokers have great seats, they are not always cheap. However, if you're taking a client, you can't really put a price on the good will it will generate. You may also be able to deduct the cost as a business expense, although you will need to verify this with your accountant.

One great online broker is With offices in South Florida and Kansas City, they are a great place to get tickets for events held all over the country. Like other ticket brokers, A Great Place to Sit has a vast network of resources working hard to get the best seats for nearly every event.

Company Manager, Rick Schefter, has been making people's dreams come true for over 25 years. "I see our business as a service business. We don't just sell a ticket, we sell an experience. Our goal is to use our knowledge and skills to help you get what you want," says Schefter.

Whether you want seats to a sporting event like the NBA playoff games, a concert, or any theatrical event, A Great Place to Sit has got your ticket. Schefter likes to point out that for anyone considering using a ticket broker, you need to ask the broker if they are licensed and bonded. Any reputable ticket broker always takes these steps to insure the customer and safeguard the process.

If you're not up-to-date on the current entertainment news, some of the must see concerts this summer include Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney, Pearl Jam, Jimmy Buffett, Madonna, The Black Eyed Peas, and Dave Matthews.

Now that we've discussed ticket brokers, let's take a look at the other Internet resource worth noting, eBay. You should begin by going to the Tickets and Experiences section within eBay. Then simply type in your event, the location, and the number of tickets needed, and you'll be looking at a menu of ticket options in no time. You'll find that some tickets are sold through the traditional auction process while others will be available as "Buy It Now" purchases. The Buy It Now option avoids the auction process and prevents you from losing out to another bidder at the last minute.

When buying tickets from eBay, there are a couple of preventative measures you can take to avoid falling victim to fraud. One is to purchase insurance from PayPal, the company which typically handles the financial portion of the transaction. In addition, you should also perform your own due diligence. Review the feedback the seller has received from other eBay users. If it's positive, with a high number of buyers leaving good comments, you can be pretty confident that the transaction will go well. It's always a good idea to purchase tickets early though, so that you'll have time to make alternative arrangements in case something goes wrong.

Whichever route you go, treat yourself to a special show. You deserve it!
