I am planning on being there for 8am, but my hubby won't be able to get there until after at say around 10am. Can i not get in line and then have him join me in the line as soon as he arrives? My kids are still in school so he has to take them to  school first and we live in Herndon va so traffic will be a nightmare. Can you please let me know if he can join me in line? i don't want to be at the concert and not be able to be with my hubby if he's only coming a couple hours after me

I asked venue security about your particular situations. They told me that you will NOT be able to enter the GA queue without your entire party being present when you are wristbanded/numbered. It stinks. I'm sorry.

I have just been informed that there ARE people queuing up for the D.C. show. However, this afternoon I spoke with the VP of Operations at FedEx Field, and he reiterated that fan-initiated numbering/queuing will not be honored by the venue. I'll look into this fan-initiated queue and update you with info as I get it.

Im going to be coming later around 5:30pm. Is it your understanding that most of the lots will have cash parking available? The only ticketmaster tickets I am seeing are for the Green-D lot plus with fees its $68. I'd rather do $60 cash.

@mogreenman i will be driving in and seen as though i can't join the line until my hubby gets there i'm not sure what time to drive in now, to get there for 8am or wait till the kids are dropped off. Last time in New York when we saw them you got in line with the fan group they numbered you and wrote down your name.

HI Evil,

Do you know how many people will get pre-screened? I guess what I am trying to understand is whether the queue for pre-screening will continue till 12PM or is there a limit as to the number of people who can be pre-screened? 

 

Thanks!

GA UPDATE

 

THE FANS:

There is indeed already a GA queue for the DC show, which fans started last night (6/18) at FedEx Field. They are set up in the Purple parking lot across from the stadium's Budlight Pavillion, roughly at marker G10. As of 12:00pm on Monday (6/19), there were roughly 80-90 names on the list.

 

Fans can show up and be numbered anytime. There is a check-in scheduled for 7pm-10pm this evening (6/19). After checking in, fans are being asked to return to the queue at 6:00am tomorrow (6/20). The fans plan to remain at that spot until 8:00am tomorrow, at which point they plan to be wristband-ed and numbered by venue personnel.

 

THE VENUE

(The stadium was not expecting fans to start a queue two days before the show, so security had not yet begun policing the lots or blocking off street access to the stadium at the time the queue began. Hence, the line has hitherto flourished unchecked.)

 

As of 12:00pm today (6/19), the gent in charge at FedEx Field (and he really is a gentleman) restated that their policy would be to not honor fan-initiated queues/numbering, and to eject fans whom security finds on stadium property before 8:00am tomorrow. Those in first in line at 8:00am at Gate G will be those who are first in the Pre-Screen Queue.

 

THE POSSIBILITIES

If fans must leave FedEx Field, the queue will regroup in the parking lot of a nearby Planet Fitness, located at 8509 Landover Rd, Hyattsville, MD 20785. Check-in times will remain the same, only the location of the line may change. The queue will remain there until the morning, when fans will walk in numbered order to Gate G of the stadium.

 

If the queue moves to the Planet Fitness parking lot, the GA Ticket Exchange/Sales Meet-up that was scheduled at 6:00am at Morgan Boulevard Metro Station, will be changed to meet at the same Planet Fitness parking lot as the GA queue.

 

It is entirely possible and probable that FedEx Field security will not honor the fan-initiated queue, and that it will be a free-for-all madhouse at Gate G at 8:00am. This information was provided so you can make an informed decision about where, when, and with whom you choose to line up.

There is a limit, but only because of the capacity of the Pavillion. If I'm remembering correctly, I think the first 2,000 will be admitted to the Pavillion. Pre-Screening can occur even after 2,000, but I assume those pre-screened after 2,000 will not be permitted into the Pavillion until the first group exits.
