Fans Complain About New Seats At TD Garden


ALL NEW AT 6:00. THE YELLOW SEATS HAVE BEEN SWAPPED OUT FOR BLACK SEATS BUT MANY ARE SEEING RED. COMPLAINTS POURING IN ON TWITTER. MANY PEOPLE POSTING PHOTOS SHOWING THEIR KNEES HITTING THE SEATS IN FRONT OF THEM AT THE TD GARDEN. THIS WAS PART OF A MASSIVE RENOVATION PROJECT. AS WE FIND OUT FANS ARE FED UP. THE NEW SEATS OF THE GARDEN ARE HORRIBLE. IF YOU’RE OVER 5’6 AND CLAUSTROPHOBIC DO NOT ATTEND AN EVENT THERE. Reporter: AND ANGRY TWEET FIRED OFF AT A FRIDAY NIGHT FIT OF CLAUSTROPHOBIA AS COSMO BROWN SAT AMONG 20,000 COMEDY FANS AT THE TD GARDEN. WHETHER THERE OR AT THE CELTICS GAME, SEVERAL FANS SAID THEY FELT SQUISHED LIKE SARDINES. I AM WAY TOO TIGHT. MY KNEES ARE TOUCHING THE FRONT OF THE SEAT, I WAS UNCOMFORTABLE, IT TOOK AWAY FROM THE EXPERIENCE. Reporter: THE GARDEN IS IN THE MIDDLE OF A $100 MILLION RENOVATION PROJECT THAT STARTED AT THE END OF THE SEASON. THAT INCLUDES REPLACING ALL OF THE SEATS AND ADDING 100 ON THE FLOOR. THE NEW SEATS ARE NICELY CUSHIONED BUT THEY LEAVE LITTLE ROOM TO RELAX. MY KNEES WERE DIGGING INTO THE SEAT IN FRONT OF ME. NOT THE BEST. Reporter: IT WAS NOT JUST A COUPLE OF FANS. MORE THAN TWO DOZEN TWEETS SHOWS FANS KNEES CRAMPED UP AGAINST THE SEATS IN FRONT OF THEM WITH COMMENTS LIKE THESE SEATS ARE TERRIBLE, IT WILL BE A ROUGH SEASON. AND THESE SEATS ARE PATHETIC. EVERYONE AROUND ME HAD THE SAME COMMENTS. THERE WERE BIGGER PEOPLE AROUND ME SAID THE SAME THING THIS IS CRAZY. WE CAN’T EVEN MOVE. IT SEEMED TO BE THE TOPIC OF THE GAME. Reporter: A GARDEN SPOKESPERSON SAID FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 25 YEARS WE UPDATED THE SEATING INSIDE. WE RECEIVED FEEDBACK FROM FANS AND CAN APPRECIATE THAT WITH CHANGE IT TAKES TIME TO GET USED TO MAJOR CHANGES. PEOPLE SHORT AND TALL TELL WBZ IT MAY CHANGE THE WAY THEY BUY TICKETS.

  1. Clearly the people managing the T manage the garden as well….first Bruins game of the season and I’m standing up every five minutes.
