He's Andy Dick. That's reason enough.

Corianderstem and ZuropaFit,
Yes, I was talking about leaving your spot inside the venue to take a restroom break or something. When I saw them in an arena before, people let me back to my place. But when it comes to stadiums, it must be more difficult because it means walking out of a bigger crowd. Imagine explaining to all of them on your way back "I was up there"... .

Well, what do you guys recommend then? I have a fast metabolism, gotta eat every 2 hours or so, etc. I'll do what I have done with other shows I guess. Eat something and take a snack with me that can satisfy a hunger like a fruit but I think those are not permitted inside the venues. Maybe chocolate bars or granolas. As for drinks, I won't take big gulps, maybe just few sips.

I would put a fanny pack on and just stuff your food in there.

The first time my wife and I saw U2 was during the Elevation tour, and we had GA tickets. I think we lined up about 2 hours before, were given a bracelet, and then were let in an hour before on the floor. We were probably 15 feet back, and it was fairly calm for an area that holds 18K people. Now, for a stadium...once they open the field, won't it be a free-for-all run to the stage?

man i would be pretty pissed off if that happened to me...
Someone should say "hey don't forget to get your number." When we were in Chicago a mother and daughter from Chile got in line behind us and asked about the number on our hand, so they went and got theirs. Generally though the numbering only lasts for the first 200-300 people, maybe not even that far. A majority are already familiar with the system and those that aren't catch on right away. If somehow, someone waited all day without a number, I would think that those in front of them and behind them could vouch for their presence in that spot.

Have your husband take a day off. If I was a couple of spots behind you, I'd be pretty annoyed.

If you get in line 3-4 hours before I can't see what the fuss is about but those of us who fight to get the best spots deserve the best chances.

My 2 cents.

That just the way of General Admission. People are always going to show up later and the line moves back a bit. It's been that way ever since I've been going to concerts since I was a teenager. It's nothing to stress about or let ruin your concert experience.

So I should forget going to GA early in Pittsburgh since my girlfriend can't get out of work earlier then 3 PM? She can get a number in the morning though.

Both of you go after 3pm and you won't be on rail, but one or two people back at worst...I only waited twice longer than getting there at 5 pm and I had great spots even showing up at 6:30pm

Yeah, we never sign people up on a list that aren't there! I mean... c'mon!
It would be TOTALLY UNFAIR to sign up your friend that you have been texting so he/she can have a better spot on the list, but can't show up til the next day.

No one would ever do THAT!

cough, cough, nudge, wink....
