Howdy folks!

Presale starts this Wednesday at 9am PST, and continues through Thursday. The General Sale is Tuesday, 1/17 at 10am PST.

For those coming from out of town. Getting to and from the Rose Bowl is well, an adventure. The stadium is lovely, but is set in an arroyo surrounded by rich people. As such, you park on a golf course and it can take hours to get out after the show. The good news is you can tailgate after the show, and there are plentiful bacon wrapped hot dogs to be found.

The alternative is hiking in from Pasadena, about 1.5-2 miles. You can park and ride in Pasadena, or take the Gold Line in. The caveat on the Gold line is it only runs every 10-20 minutes at night so getting back can be tricky.

Lastly, and very importantly, much like an NFL stadium, the Rose Bowl no longer allows bags unless they are clear bags. You can carry a clutch, but it needs to be tiny. I've seen people turned away because their bags were too big.

When you said hiking, and before I saw the 1.5-2 miles bit, I was picturing a 10km+ walk along a dirt road like at a secluded camping festival. Easy. I'm amazed anyone could (and would choose to) be stuck in a car for hours to travel a few kms.

It's not always out of laziness. Personally, I didn't mind parking down there for the 2009 show. I hung out with my friends all day and after the show, we continued to drink and hang out until everyone left. I wasn't in a hurry to get home and I didn't have to work the next day. Plus it's easier to set up and pack away if you're near your car. Can't really hang out in the same way on a busy street or residential block.

After a GA show, the last thing I want to do is walk that 2 miles, which is uphill for a ways.

After show tailgate however is fantastic.

Yeah, that's a good way of taking the traffic pain out of the equation. Wasn't trying to imply it was all due to laziness, just that with the time it takes to get home, I'm surprised more people who do have the option to avoid the traffic don't do so.

My legs tend to cramp up a bit during a long GA show, so getting to move again is a bit of a relief.
