Looks like the lines are starting much earlier this leg. On the last leg you could usually show up at 10:00am and easily make the heart. Being on a weekend, the line for Vegas will no doubt start VERY early, so be prepared. If you MUST be in the heart, better go early. Might be a good idea to send an early rising "scout" with a cell phone to check out the line and call if it looks like it's getting long.

Being in line all day isn't so bad. I was in the line for San Jose from 9:00am on. The line was almost as much fun as the concert. Just bring food and water and something to sit on. You have lots of pleasent company and you can take bathroom breaks. As for your beauty routine. Just freshen up mid afternoon. (One of the advantages of being "old" is that I don't worry so much how I look at a concert I just tie a scarf around my hair and forget about it.)

Most places will let you take stuff back to your car around 5:00 and then you have to stay in line until they let you in at 6:00 or 6:30.

I'll be at Vegas and Staying at the hard rock with 3 of my friends. Madame Tussauds sounds fun! and getting together at the Hard Rock does to!

I'm got tickets thru ETS in Vegas and crappy tickets to all 3 LA's. I sent away for Prop tickets but have received nothing as of today , but no email either. WEIRD!

*racking her brain* why are we paying for hotels if we are only going to be sleeping a couple of hours? shaking head in disbelief c'mon people I'm sure we can organize something to keep an eye on the locals and plan to all get there a certain time.

And the tattoo thing is a damn good idea. A Macphisto logo is in order.
murlio, we'll be at the Hard Rock also Friday thru Monday! Party at all of our rooms! We've got reserved seating so we'll be spending part of Sunday at brunch and by the pool!

Bright light city gonna set my soul
Gonna set my soul on fire
Got a whole lot of money that's ready to burn,
So get those stakes up higher
There's a thousand pretty women waitin' out there
And they're all livin' devil may care
And I'm just the devil with love to spare
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas

How I wish that there were more
Than the twenty-four hours in the day
'Cause even if there were forty more
I wouldn't sleep a minute away
Oh, there's black jack and poker and the roulette wheel
A fortune won and lost on ev'ry deal
All you need's a strong heart and a nerve of steel
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas with you neon flashin'
And your one armbandits crashin'
All those hopes down the drain
Viva Las Vegas turnin' day into nighttime
Turnin' night into daytime
If you see it once
You'll never be the same again

I'm gonna keep on the run
I'm gonna have me some fun
If it costs me my very last dime
If I wind up broke up well
I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time
I'm gonna give it ev'rything I've got
Lady luck please let the dice stay hot
Let me shout a seven with ev'ry shot
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas,
Viva, Viva Las Vegas

I was thinking about taking a weekend excursion to Vegas. I've never been there. I don't have tickets, but the last I checked, there were still some good seat tickets through Interference (their "package" deals). I'm not much of a gambler, so the itinerary on Sat. sounds like fun. Of course, I would probably get a GC ticket so I'd miss out on getting in the line at 4 a.m. Darn.

Hmmm... should I spend the $$ for this?

Yes, you should. Do not question the inevitable, Doctor Who. Please forgive my spelling of inevitable.

GC is cool. Then you can spend at least part of Sunday cruising some of the huge hotels. For instance, you can visit New York, Venice, Paris, Ceasar's Rome, The Road to Mandalay, and King Arthur's court and still have lots of time for the concert.

Plebau2, thanks for Viva Las Vegas!

Four weeks!!!
