IF I HAVE TICKETS, WHERE WILL MY NEW SEAT BE?
Your ticket and seat assignment should have been updated in your Flash Seats app by now. Now, you might be stressing that your seat won't be as good as your original seat at The Q, but don't think that! Your new seat will be comparable or even better than your previously assigned seat. Just look at this tweet (taken from the back of the house):

There really isn't a bad seat in the house… at all.
