Oops, I think I figured out finally. If you click on the B sector, they will ask for the password. The B sector wasn't available till now.
Thank you majmunka. This is very disappointing (but reassuring for all those who have already bought their tickets). They don't even have the first few rows of sector B available!!

It looks as if I am going to have to settle for row 9.

How come the B, C and D sectors are the same price category (110 eur) and there are cheaper seats in the red sector (even for 90 eur)

Looks like this special sale (which was some kind of after-sale instead of the usual pre-sale!) was not very useful for our members.
Better seats (in section A) were offered without the password! I have reported these problems to AEG, although the seats
were very probably chosen by the local seller and not AEG.

From AEG - they checked with Bratislava:
Sector B is the best sector as its elevated and very close to the stage. Sector A is on the floor, so there isn’t so good view as in the Sector B.
Hopefully all members have now purchased the tickets they wanted in either Sector A or B.

Thank for following up with AEG. The simple answer to their question is "NO"!!

Does anyone know the venue? If so can you comment on the response - is Sector B better??? Has anyone found any pictures of the venue? I am struggling to find any info on this venue at the moment.

So how come the seats on the floor row 9 back are more expensive than sector B? That doesn't seem right does it?

I attended the concert last August and had a seat in row 9 of block A. It was a great seat in terms of proximity to the stage. I personally would prefer a seat in A rather than B.

We just received our tickets for the Bratislava Concert. So this will be the third year in a row we are able to see, listen and experience Leonard Cohen. Does anyone have a good tip for a nice hotel not far from the Incheba Expo Arena.
Is the arene easiky reacheble by public transport.?
We hope to see some of our fellow forum members.

Hi ronald1956 and all,
last year I lived in Esprit Hotel, which is just 5 minutes away from the concert venue. It's cozy, very nice htoel. You go to a footbridge over a four-lane road and you are at the concert venue. Double room costs 56 Euro, breakfast and parking directly at the hotel is free. You can book a bed at http://www.booking.com / Bratislava
I was very happy there! ;-)

Hi SuzanneT,
Thanks for the info. I found the Esprit Hotel on a dutch booking site and all the comments where very possitive, similer to your experience. So we booked the hotel and are now counting the days till the concert. Hope to see you and other forum members.

Hi ronald1956,
I'm glad I could help! I really was happy there and it's really close to the venue of the concert. I also hope that we meet there and also that we meet with other people from the forum :idea: ;-)
