Glad you liked it. More impressions on the show are needed though!
What time did you arrive/line up to get 3 people back on Adam's side? I have seen reports in a few forums that the GA capacity has been increased for the 2024 shows (I could not find an official source for this info). Can anyone confirm?

I am attending on 3/1 and was planning to skip wristbands and arrive at doors open - should I reconsider if the floor is more packed now?
We arrived at 6PM and stood in the GA line. We even went upstairs so I can show my wife the lobby. After that we stood on Edges side for about 10 minutes and were about 8-12 people back. I then told my wife lets go to Adams side and see. There were quite a bit of openings on the right side (facing stage). So about 7:15PM-30PM we were able to get a spot on the side about 2-3 people back. Awesome expereince. Adam & Bono move around quite a bit. Edge didn't really come on our side as he's focused quite a bit more, haha.

During the acoustic set we stepped back towards the back to get some space & enjoy the screen during the encore.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A man who scaled the exterior of the massive Sphere venue in Las Vegas on Wednesday morning was taken into custody, authorities said.

Las Vegas police said they began receiving calls about a person climbing the 366-foot-tall spherical structure near the Strip just after 10 a.m. The police department confirmed in an email about an hour later that the man had been detained.

The department identified the man as Maison Des Champs, 24. It wasn’t immediately clear what charges he faces.

Clark County Sheriff Kevin McMahill, head of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, characterized the incident as a publicity stunt “because of who they told me that they believe it is.'

Des Champs is a local rock climber who has pulled off similar stunts before in Las Vegas and beyond. He posted a short cellphone video Wednesday morning on his Instagram account from atop the Sphere.

The video shows him against a blue but cloudy sky with a GoPro camera strapped to his head.

“Hey guys, I’m here on top of the Sphere,” he says in the video, wind whipping in the background as he explains that he scaled the structure to help raise funds for a pregnant woman who is experiencing homelessness.

Des Champs was first arrested by Las Vegas police in August 2021 after scaling the Aria on the Strip. That time, he claimed that the stunt was to protest mask mandates during the COVID-19 pandemic. He was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and trespassing, but prosecutors later dismissed the case, court records show.

Des Champs, who bills himself as “The Official Pro-Life Spider-Man” on his social media accounts, was detained last February by Arizona authorities after scaling Phoenix’s tallest building to promote his anti-abortion cause. He says he climbs for a nonprofit called Let Them Live, which raises funds for women who seek an abortion because they cannot financially support a child
tbh, about the same build.

I do like the soup commercial where the brothers are arm wrestling and Jason calls Travis "pretty boy" and he grunts back "I'm a pretty MAN".
