For Fans, Not Scalpers: The Idea Behind The Anthem’s Super Excellent™ Seats 

The Anthem will have a few rows in the balconies that are Super Excellent Seats. Each seat is uniquely angled to face the stage at the exact perfect position. “These seats are so ridiculously great that we decided to give fans the opportunity to buy them for each show, even when it’s general admission,” said Seth Hurwitz, chairman of I.M.P. and co-owner of The Anthem and the 9:30 Club.

“So, like first class on airplanes, sporting events, and the usual hedonistic situations,” continued Hurwitz, “it costs more. But, in this case, we are keeping the best seats for real fans, and making sure these tickets don’t get in the hands of scalpers.” Super Excellent seats are non-transferrable and must be picked up at The Anthem box office on show night.

  • Foo Fighters – Opening Night, October 12 (sold out)
