    I know this is a strange question for this board but I have tried everything else to get the answer so I thought what the heck!!!

    Cheetah Girls are at the Wachovia Spectrum in Philadelphia sunday. When I bought the tickets they said it was an ENDSTAGE setup but now I am hearing a rumor that the stage will be moved way up so that they only use half of the spectrum. That puts my seats in big trouble of being beside the stage instead of in front.

    Does anyone know anything about how the stage is being setup?? I know it is a long shot but I have no idea how else to find out. When I call the spectrum they just keep saying endstage is all they know.

    I can't give you any real info, as I have never been there, but it sounds like ticket sales weren't great if they are reducing the size of the theater. My guess is your seat will be moved as well. You'll probably end up being closer than you were before. For instance, if they move up the stage the people in the front row aren't going to be behind the stage suddenly.

    Don't worry - I'm sure you'll have a great time. I like the films, and have seen the girls perform on TV (again today on Martha), but they sure do lip-sync a lot, LOL. But I'm sure your daughter won't notice.

    Relax, and have a good time!

    Hi Tyboyz,

    I'll be at the concert at the Wachovia, too. I'm taking my two nieces. All I heard is that it was sold out. Didn't know it might only be set up for 1/2 full.

    In total, about 2 hours. There is a warm-up by Jordan Pruitt (never heard of her before the show). She sang @ 3 songs and promoted her "stuff" (cd, website). Then Ashley Tisdale performed @ 5 songs. There was a 15 min break after Ashley and then the Cheetahs arrived. Their performance combined alot of dance with the songs and I thought it was entertaining.

    I was talking with another mom and I wondered out loud, "What would Walt think about all this??" Disney entertainment has come along way from Mickey & Minnie. Disney is truly masterful when it comes to promotions and drawing in a broad audience.

    Do Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens rotate? I know I see Vanessa's name for a lot of shows.


    I wish they would put the High School musical tickets on sale for NJ. I keep checking daily.

    Just to clarify........I meant Vanessa Hudgens, not Ashley Tisdale as far as the other act :crazy:

    To answer your question, they did not rotate.

    There is going to be a concert tour of HSM (minus Zac - he's filming Hairspray). Everyone is waiting for the tickets to go on sale in their particular city. Be careful, there is also a stage version of the movie that is being sold (as opposed to a real "concert").

    Keep checking. I didnt realize the tickets went on sale (I was looking for Providence RI or Manchester NH), and missed them. I have been deciding how much I would pay for them on eBay, and low and behold last night ticketmaster released more tickets, so I got awesome seats for Manchester at face value (plus all their crazy fees!)..

    So keep checking ticketmaster if you thought it was sold out before...

    Good luck!

    We saw the Cheetah Girls in Charlotte NC on 10-14-06. Hannah Montana (Miley Cyrus) was their guest as well as another girl band that played first. About 2 days before the concert the venue (Cricket Arena) opened up more seats on the sides of the stage. It was a complete sell out. The only seats not sold were behind the stage - it was an end stage set up. There were people there from GA, TN and VA.

    It was a good show - IMO. My dd thinks it was great!!! She loves Miley Cyrus. The whole thing lasted about 2 hrs or so.

    luvthatdisney, do you think the stage was moved up any from a normal end stage setup?? The rumors I am hearing is that it has been an end stage setup put they really move the stage up so there is a much larger "backstage" area than normal.

    I was finally able to talk to someone in Event Production and he says the show in Phila will be a half house. It is an end stage setting but the stage is moved way up toward the center.
