Boston general admission policy

Recommended Posts

They wanna do like for the Springsteen concert in Florence. You arrive, they give you a cronological number (i.e. you arrive after 33 persons you will have number 34), then they extract a number, for example 176, so the person with 176 will be first, than 177, so on.. when you arrive at the end of the given numbers you start again from 1-2-3, in this case it means that every number can be VERY lucky or VERY unlucky. I don't like this method 'cause it's unfair. You arrive late, take number 155 and go first in line, you arrive early and will be at the back of the line.

Anyone living in US can call the TD to have the updated policy (sorry but I live in Italy)? Could you ask at what time they give you whristbands? :)

this is bullshit.

why does boston have to be the one city to screw this whole thing up?

random line. seriously? This isnt going to fly with the hundreds of fans planning on lining up.

 

i dont believe this anyways. Theyve done normal GA in the past. no reason they'd change policy suddenly.

Ok better for anyone ;) I was just explaining what happened in the past Boss gigs. I also twitted the Td Garden, no answer yet.

I just copied and pasted from a forum on another site, so it's not reliable.  I want to know the facts as well!     If anyone else hears anything definitive, please post!!

Random numbering does not sound fair at all; and given the fact that most venues have been doing the wrist banding (that Boston started the pattern for on the Vertigo tour), why would Boston all of a sudden switch to a random numbered system? I understand given the Garden's location that they really can't have people lining up for long periods or camping, but I thought the sequentially numbered wristbands of 2005 were the perfect solution.

 

GA's all about putting the time commitment in. I've only been able to get to GA lines in the past in early afternoon, and have still managed to get great spots five or so rows back from the rail--granted it's not always great for a person that's 5'2" like me, but still amazing. I'm able to put in the early time commitment this time around and really want to get a rail spot (given there's so much of it I didn't think it would be too hard this time), but why bother if I could really end up at ANY place in line come 5pm.

Go on Twitter and look what @U2 had written about GA in Boston:

-staff will not organize the line

-fans can do it @own risk, NOT BEFORE 6 AM

 

FYI: Per TD Garden Staff - For #U2ieTour Boston, NO staff will organize GA line until closer to doors open. All lineups are at your own risk

 

 

I asked them about wristbands/times/ecc and they said:

 

 

@xxx: It's up to the fan who decides to run the GA line. The CS agent was very specific to say Garden staff not responsible.

 

Hope it helps, I would have preferred staff line instead of self organized one..

Just saw this post thanks!

 

I sure hope we'll be able to get our spot, go chill somewhere, and get back in line at 4 or 5 ish. That's what most other cities have done, right?

How many previous cities have had the 'fan run' GA lines?

I just called the garden and was told they will be giving out wristbands. No mention as to whether this was a "fan run" thing...sounded pretty officially planned to me..

I have 2 little kids I'll be dragging in with me early to pick up the wristbands, so I hope I get the right info! Family adventure

@jwaldrop: that was my idea ;) i don't know about other cities, sorry..

@maryanne: this is confusing me.. i don't think wristbands are from fans, in that case the news should have popped up on zootopia. At what time will you be there? I think to go around 9 am.. is it too late?

Can't find any info. All the phone numbers I can find for the TD Garden result in a dial tone.

 

Does anyone know how the numbers have worked in the past? If there are four of us, and only three of us in line, can the remaining one person get in with us in our place in the numbered line later? U2 community take care of its own, or is it a goat rodeo?
