Scene at Jones Beach from someone who knows

#20454 3 years, 3 months ago
Police are refusing to allow a Shakedown there and have refused for the past 2 years. PHUN going to beach and hanging out in water with 100's of other Deadheads...We BBQ in parking lot, listen to music and are very careful. GREAT venue...you can see water from seats...no really bad seats. If you get to the lot a few hours early you get to hear the rehearsal...COOL!
Buy the ticket, take the ride.

No beer inside the venue unless you have special seating (VIP?). Can hear rehearsal from outside but not the actual show? hee hee yes you canhear the show from the close lots and the water if you have a boat. Unsure about the shakedown scene as its been a while.... Also not sure about the "party in the lot pre and post"

I got to Roger Waters late a few years back (my friends fault) and we were in the far parking lot. I could still hear the show as soon as we pulled up...
