My ticket just came in the mail today, so I'll run around in circles, but for a non-panic reason. :D

Yeah, there is already a thread for this over in the ticket section.

I wonder why they changed it again... :?:

I've had my tickets for awhile. I'll only run around and panic when I get to the gate and realize I left them at home :shock:

Probably has something to do with selling 30,000 tickets on the 1st day.

That reminds me... I need to go place this ticket in "The Place" before I misplace the damn thing and end up tearing the house apart looking for it a couple months from now. ;)

I think its a good thing.
There will be no point for people to sit out side and beg for 'spare change' to get a ticket.
Will keep the unprepared folks out!

And maybe even some of the raver/frat crowd that gets there for the end of the week.

It will probably come close. I'm sure there's a little bit of elastic in their calculations.

This'll be great, because then I can tell my friend not to bother (this time) if some gate-panhandler tries to rook him out of a dollar or two for a ticket.

I thought I was reading something newsworthy...must have clicked on the wrong thread.

They should have done this years ago.

You guys are so near sighted. Let's buy a bunch of tickets at the current price, and then sell them to those useless smelly drug-addicted hippies as they wander towards the front gate? I mean, nobody wants them there anyway, and if we can extort a few bucks out of this absolute waist of human protoplasm, who's the worse off? And if they can't pay and just wander off into the desert and die, well, it seems to me that is money well spent. Good bye hippiesor frat boyz. Either way, good riddance.

It will take a LOT more than lack of gate sales to keep the unprepared out. ;)

Yes, that could possibly work to that effect, but what's going to serve to keep the pompous elitists out? That is if you're not actually playing the devil's advocate by your unkind remarks.

It was done in 2008, but sales were sluggish in 09, so for the past couple of years they had them. I"m guessing that unless they have to stick with something for some reason (and I have no idea what that reason would be) they will have gate sales or not in order to best position themselves in regard to attendance and maximum dollars.

No gate sales or selling out means scalpers and more problems with early sales, which is why I quit going to concerts.

The last concert with teenagers, they stood on the chairs and I couldn't see over them.
All girl audience, could be worse.

The band gave me tickets.
It was John Melloncamp.
(Isn't bieber pre-teen world?)

A really good live show, as promised.
Great audio, good stagecraft.
I stayed for the whole show.

I was surprized by the audience.
I was up front and I couldn't see any other guys from where I was.
