    Default Lucas Oil Stadium Open House Tour

    Is anyone going to the Lucas Oil Stadium Tour this weekend?

    If so, can you post some pictures here afterward so us out-of-towners can gawk at them.

    A nice review would be appreciated too.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    I wish I was going. I'll be there next month for the Kenny Chesney concert though.

    Hey, it turns out I'll be in Indianapolis tomorrow. Does anyone have any extra tickets they won't be using?

    I don't have any extra tix, and posting pictures of Lucas Oil is a sore spot for our server host so I'll be happy to e-mail you some if you're not able to make it, but won't post any. I'm not sure of the gory details of the whole thing but I think able had a HUGE bandwidth charge when some pics got posted of The Luke during construction. Some folks shared the link and it snowballed.

    Just upload them to http://www.imageshack.us and post the link.

    I have a couple, but they're on my phone and no real way of getting them off. I do have a few that I will have digitally in a few days. Perfect time for my digital camera to break, three days before the tour. >.<

    I couldn't believe how crowded it was. I knew there were a lot of tix out there, but they should've opened up more parts of the stadium, so the concourse wouldn't have been so crazy

    OMFG THIS. The complete lack of ability to take two consecutive steps really ruined the whole thing for me. And the fact that most of the levels weren't open only fueled my rage.

    Looks like we had a pretty good set up for the construction workers party. It was packed, but not to the level that the public showings were. Hopefully soon, naptown_seth will have some photos. They were pretty lax with actually going onto the field and sprawling out. They also gave us admission into the Colts locker room where they had the Vince Lombardi trophy there inside. It was a good show indeed.

    As for what Travmil mentioned, yeah...there was an issue with the pictures that I had taken during the construction. The construction managment company that built the stadium was very tight with any media images of the stadium, so at the time...my pictures were the only somewhat public images that were available of the inside of the stadium. Word of mouth of the construction photos being on this site spread like wildfire. In the end, our gracious host had taken a beating financially due to the bandwidth that was used to see the "only public photos" of the stadium.

    Honestly, seeing video of people during the construction party kicking field goals and screwing around on the field just made me more pissed when I saw that they had the whole thing roped off.

    I kind of thought that might be the case. I had a few friends forward me emails of "New Stadium Pictures!!", which all ended up being your pictures. It was kind of funny.

    I've been on plenty of free tours in the past that were more organized, spacious, and those places didn't hold 63,000.

    It was still nice to see, but if I knew then what I knew now... I probably would've just waited until the season started b/c most of my time was spent on the concourse trying to figure out where to go, and I can do that during the game.

    Walking on the sidelines, in the endzone, and by the locker the last 30 minutes keep me from being extremely disappointed

    Well, keep in mind, I doubt the concourse is meant to have anywhere close to 63,000. Usually a vast majority will be in their seats or going/coming to them. On these things, you don't get that. It was crowded Monday, but it sounds like it was worse for you guys.

    Hopefully Seth will have some pictures soon.

    You must not be from around here. I pay for that tour every time I go out to eat or stay in a hotel, ride in a taxi, etc, etc, etc. So no, I didn't get my money's worth.

    And the people that paid 25 bucks a pop for these tickets on eBay, I bet they're

    The new stadium looks very nice. I just wish Irsay would have fit more of the bill. He pays 1 million for a superbowl, we never got (2011). I know Jerry Jones paid more money than him for his new stadium. I do not like the fact the Irsay's expect the taxpayers to float the bill when they (Irsays) will profit the most of this stadium.

    Taxpayers getting the hose is the price you pay to play in the Major Leagues. If you are not willing to pay as a community, another community will show just how willing they are to foot the bill. It's not right, it's not fair...but, that's the way it is! Just ask anyone from Seattle or Oklahoma City. There are a slew of politicians and fans that thought their city's team didn't deserve a new stadium....only to build one AFTER their team moves.


    IMHO!!!!
    Personally, I'm glad Indianapolis didn't play this game of Russian Rullet with 5 bullets in the chaimber and one empty.

    In the grand scheme of things, only having to ante up an extra penny on the dollar for pre-pared food or shelling out more for that occasional rental car as a resident is chump change for this stadium. It almost amounts to a "voluntary tax"....almost.

    The community benefits from having 8 home games a year, in addition to all the convention space we will have at the end of this. Plus having a professional football team is a huge part of trying to build a reputation for the city.
