From what I can see on Montrealís Bell Centre seating chart, people at the both ends will end up paying less, since they donít really see the screen. I believe that was not the case in 2015.

 At least now we know what the stage looks like whereas back then, no one had any clue. It was a rectangle in the middle. I still have pictures of the exciting ticket buying

True. And I also think the band took into consideration complaints from fans who had paid big bucks, but could not see the screen.

Similar location than 2015, no?

Yep, similar location to 2015.  I was bummed when I showed up for RedZone then in Vancouver because rail wasn't an option, but it wound up being perfect because you could see the screen.  You can't see the screen if you're all the way up on the rail.  The screen was amazing!

O, I thought Red Zone was at the B-stage.

Couldn't see it ... I left the rail after three songs ... shittest spot in the building ... surrounded by mobile phones and knackered people who had been queuing for days. The party was in the gaps in crowd near E stage loads of dancing room and atmosphere.

What I was worried about. I want to do GA this tour (seats were horrible). So it's going to be E stage, then  :).

I moved around the arena ... at times I was in the middle ... others near the front ... and then near E stage ... it was quite an interactive gig. Just turn up when the doors open and move around the crowd.

Haha, OK. I'll look for the place with the most fun.

But first things first: tickets!

Nice ... definitely the least fun place is on the rail and right near the front. Those guys are so stressed and cliquey and boring. No atmosphere just people concentrating on getting that great photo for their instabook accounts.

I did about 6-7 rows back at GA in London 2015 and it was great, I could see the screen and then also see the band close up which has it's perks -eye contact with Larry!!  I was a bit closer in the arena than I was at TJT (and didn't queue for too long for either show).

Agreed. Moving around is the best thing to do for this stage setup. Here's a couple of pics I took in Montreal last time for I&E

Near the E stage:
