Can anyone tell me how that works? Do I just show up and cross my fingers?

Pretty much.

I wouldn't recommend killing yourself trying to get to the venue early for a wristband. It's not going to matter if you're number 22 or number 222 - whatever they draw at 6pm is what they draw. The way it goes is, you show up between 2-5 pm, get your numbered wristband then told to return at 5 for the lineup and lottery draw. Then, once the number is drawn, from that number back up to 500 (at least in Detroit, not sure about other venues but I've heard it varies) are the lucky ones who get in the pit.

Cool. If you don't get into the pit, your best bet is to hang around and get as close to the front as possible, yeah?

I'm short. I need to be close to see.

Thanks!

Definitely. And, at least in St. Paul, after the 500 pit winners went in, everyone was lined up according to what number they had, lowest got the closest spots in regular GA. I'm not sure if that's how it worked at all the venues though.

I get where you're coming from on the short front...I'm 5"2', so yeah, I need to be near the front too, or at least somewhere where I can get a good angle at the stage.

Hewson and I were on the rail outside of the pit in Boston, and a guy with his girlfriend were right behind us. She wasn't very tall, either, but it worked out that she was able to see the stage right between us. Even though I'm not too tall myself, 5'10" can still get in the way.

You know what? I really want cori to get into the pit so maybe I should just go with her to the show. To make sure she's got the whole wristband and GA procedures down and all.

I like your logical conclusion...

So cool that people are getting out to see him for the first time, especially when we don't know how many more times we'll see the E Street Band in all its glory...

You should. I mean, Seattle's not that far away, right? It's probably okay that I only bought one ticket ... we'll beat up some sixth grader and take his on the way to Key Arena.

But yes. Clearly, I need guidance. Hold my hand, LMPA! Lead me!

Yeah, just noticed that. Kind of surprised that they are already being announced, being that it's so far away still.

Gillette Stadium shouldn't be far behind...
