boston GA 12/4

ok, i know this is kind of early to be asking this, seeing as there is another month and a half to the show, but, i have been obsessing over this latley..i'm hoping someone can help me out.

to stand in line for ga in dec in boston will be FREEZING. that being said, i still want to do it, because i know if i dont get lucky and get into the ellipse, i'm going to want to be front and center outside of the rail. therefore, in dec would one venture to guess that i still will have to wait starting like midnight the night before in order to be first in line? also i don't have fan tickets this time, just regular admission ones...anyone really familar with the fleetcenter? will the waiting still be outside like it was for the oct shows? i can't imagine waiting from 12am in freezing cold boston dec weather, but i guess it would be worth it in the end...any thoughts on this please? thanks...

First, at least you don't have to wait all day outside. Only before you get your wristband in the morning. Whats a couple of hours in the middle of the night in freezing weather.

Maybe it'll even snow and be a NorthEaster!

The big question for Boston in December actually is:
Does someone have (GA) tickets to sell to me?

tbh, the way the weather's been going, it's not going to snow by then. and i've heard that they just kick you off the premises if you're trying to camp out, but i would speak to brokengrrl (somethinglikethat). she was first in line before, methinks. i would say, if you get there at 5am, you're probs gonna get a spot on the rail anyway, but who knows? I was 110 or something last time and i was just second row from the outside of the rail. (i came at 7:45, i think.)

I have a question about this...

the thing that was sent out for October says you may begin lining up at 8am for your numbered wristbands... as it was the same in May I'm assuming it'll be the same in December. Here's a link, if you want it...
http://www.tdbanknorthgarden.com/U2.pdf

I find it hard to believe that nobody will show up until 8am. Do people line up elsewhere? What exactly happened in October and May? Do they kick you out if you get there before 8?

I'm weird about doing new things unless I know EXACTLY what's going on.

Well, at least w/ Boston it sounds like they give you the wrist band w/ a number early in the morning, and then you can leave for a sizable chunk of the day after that. At least it shouldn't involve hours upon hours of standing in the bitter cold!

Hi

In May we tried to line up next to the arena but there was a security guard who wasn't very nice and told us to leave...we ended up lining up at the federal building next to the arena instead, this continued for the rest of the may shows. In october, by the time I got there the line had already formed at the federal building....and security just comes over in the morning and moves the line when they are ready. It is actually a good spot because there is on overhead covering incase it is raining/snowing and it helps break the wind that can whip through there! Hope this helps.

excellent, that's exactly what I wanted to know

so about how early do you think I should get there, if I'm looking to be near the front?

mabel - I'm happy about that too, I wasn't looking forward to sitting out in the cold all day...

I'm going to the show on Monday in New York. I'm not really sure what I'm going to do/wear. I'd definitely prefer it if they handled it the way they do in Boston. I'd rather get there ridiculously early, all bundled up, get my wristband and then veg at home for a while before returning later w/ a lightened load of clothing. What can you do though? I'll just have to make due.

I'm in Atlanta right now... it's 39 degrees outside and I'm dying because I spent 15 minutes outside getting gas and something to eat.

How am I ever going to survive Boston?

39 degrees in Atlanta?! I have a feeling it won't be much colder in Boston (even in a week or so).

at least you won't have to stand out there in the cold ALL DAY... but yeah, 38 degrees can be a bitch when all you're doing is standing there
we can huddle

so where is this federal building in accordance to where they actually gave the wrist bands in boston for the oct shows? i'm going to the 12/4 and can't wait but i am really concerned about getting as good a spot as possible. sooo, i'm planning on lining up at like midnight. but i need to know where to stand!!

and i just walked back from a friend's to my dorm and it is sooo freking cold outside. i don't know how i'm going to survive 8 hrs of standing in boston coldness. it's already freezing here and it's just going to get worse in the next 2 weeks i'm afraid!!

The Federal building is directly to the left of the TDBanknorthFleetCenterBostonGardenbuildingwithtoomanynames.
Its on the west side, where they also distribute the wristbands.

I'm just nitpicking, but I don't think I've ever heard of a NorthEaster, though I have heard of a Nor'Easter
