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.
