what happened last summer @ Mann?

#129229 2 years, 7 months ago
i remember reading on here about how some people missed the first set and the line to get in was ridiculous. can anyone clue me in on what happened? I just remembered a friend of mine was there last year and she never said anything about this. I was just reading on yelp reviews of the mann - the only negative ones were from people who went to the furthur show

so what gives? anyone have first hand experience?

also - has anyone sat in the balcony at the mann? i've heard its hot but what is the view like? I got a box seat, it looks like it could be pretty spacious up there.

The lines were horrible getting in last summer. Very backed up. I started walking in about 30 min before showtime and I "missed" the first song or two. (you can hear some of it outside, but I guess the gates were too noisy to hear it well).

The crowds started getting unruly and somehow the lines moved much quicker after that. It seemed like there were only about 4 gates open and they were frisking people big time. My guess is that when the crowd started to get rowdy, they decided not to give everyone a "strip search" in order to speed up the lines.

Definitely try to go in a little earlier if you can.

You wouldn't happen to be Tim, would you? You look very much like an old deadhead friend I know many years ago.

thanks for the info.

no, I'm not Tim. I'm a relative newcomer. This will be my 4th furthur show but i've been too a bunch of dead-related shows. too young to see the original.

Gosh, by the time I got up there an ez search. They didn't have you take off shoes or anything. But without going crazy I try to anticipate the worse.

Thx for the answer to my other question, "not Tim" and welcome to the forums!

I'm sure others can help with your security question.

Take off your shoes?? Geez! No wonder why there was a line!
I went walkin' out last summer
Tryin' to find a breath of air
I went walkin' on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there

Didnt have any problem with security however did have to dodge a deer running through shakedown. I swear he was laughing as he ran by.

No, no need to take off shoes, sry if I confused you. My point is it was an ordinary search, not too bad.

Stricken, was there really a deer? Could the laughing part be in your head????

im sure the newscaster mentioned how it was a long strange trip....
