No Groupon deal for the El Paso concert was ever offered. With the setup of the Don Haskins Center being *relatively* small for a big production like this show, ticket prices were kept at a very high level (starting around $100) throughout the onsale period. The arena doesn’t have multiple levels and layers of luxury suites. If one was looking for cheaper upper level seats in this region, Lubbock was the place to be.

I was going to hit Lubbock for the KISS concert but opted for Lafayette. Casinos in Louisiana was the determining factor.

Prices have gone steadily UP since they first went on sale.

They bumped up the flight almost 40 minutes from 2:10 to 1:30. With no Meet & Greets going on, they're going to be sitting at the arena a long time.

This is the boxscore from KISS’ last visit.

KISS
Don Haskins Center
El Paso, Texas
Dec. 2, 2009
$441,322
6,536 / 6,536

Looking at other boxscores that seems about right for an end stage setup. Of course the more side/rear stage seats in play it changes the whole equation.

It appears they just released some seats.

I’m not familiar with the venue but apparently the furthest seats directly across from the stage, top level, last rows are obstructed view.

It’s definitely a smaller-size older arena, with a relatively small floor for standard concert setups, i.e. those not in the round.

“The lower bowl contains 6,604 permanent seats and the upper bowl has 5,015 orange chairs. Add them up and you get 11,619. The DHC also has 36 wheelchair accessible seats and 237 portable floor seats. That brings the grand total to 11,892.”

Yeah, all places get cut up the same. There’s a full sell every seat behind the stage set up.

And your boilerplate end stage configuration. Probably almost exactly like the one KISS is using tonight.

As mentioned...add side and rear stage to accommodate demand.

It's almost like amphitheater seating.

I'm surprised Paul even has a second stage. He could literally jump to it from the main stage without the wire.
