No, I don't have tips on that because we didn't need to park, we were dropped off The guy next to me in line said that he found the nearest shopping center/mall/store parking lot, parked there, and walked... It took him a while, but it was worth it
The center is where Chris is, obviously, but the ramps are just REALLY exciting! And as you can see from my videos, I was definitely close enough to him Where I was, I was basically at the stage and the ramp, so it was perfect I wanted to be at Jonny's ramp, but Liz wanted to be near Guy so I followed her
Befriend the security guard too, though! the guard with us was SO NICE, his name was Glen (like Scrubs! haha), and he really helped us out. He gave us the butterflies that the boys had stepped on after they took their bows, so I have butterflies with their shoeprints on them thanks to Glen
OH, don't be afraid to be vocal- when they started letting in those Best Buy people before us, those of us in the front of the line started yelling and yelling until we got special treatment from the security guards! It was worth any weird looks that we got
Be vocal in the pit, too, especially with the roadies- it pays off!
Nah, it's okay, I'm annoying about this stuff too There was a substantial line (hundreds at least, I'd say) behind us by the time the gates opened, but most of those people weren't pit, but lawn. I'd say that there were pit people towards the middle/back of that line at 6:30 who still got front row, or at least very close to it. Once inside the pit people were super nice, my friend and I left for merch and it was no problem getting back to our spot at the front.
People starting lining up when the parking lots opened, so you should find out when that is. They were trickling in between 3:30 and 5:30, but it started to really pick up between 5:30 and 6:30. Hmmm, what else... When the gates open, RUN to the pit, even if you feel like collapsing. Befriend the people waiting in line with you if they're also in the pit, it's REALLY helpful. Befriend the security guards on the other side of the barricade at the stage, too, they'll help you out with setlists, etc. I was right where the stage met the IMP ramp, so I was about 2 feet from the ramp- Being next to a ramp was the best choice I ever made, you should DEFINITELY go for it!
Basically, the whole thing wasn't NEARLY as complicated as I thought it would be. I don't know if that was because I was first in line or what, but I really stressed out more than I needed to beforehand. Be friendly to everyone around you, start conversations, and it'll be even simpler! Okay, I'll let you know if I think of anything else GOOD LUCK, I'm sure it'll all work out amazingly!
And I'm uploading my videos and photos now, so check the Chris thread/concert thread now and later tonight/tomorrow... I have some enjoyable material for Chrissylovers
