Just to prevent confusion...............all GA audience will receive wristbands splitting the total GA quantity between the two sides of the catwalk (North and South side).
As previously mentioned, some venues (LA) hand out separate wristbands which will determine your place in line to enter the venue. Which by the way is a great way to manage that line. You can leave for the rest of the day but must be back before 5 (LA) to reclaim your spot. Even if you have number 1 and show up after 5, you will move to the end of the line.
Once the venue opens, have your credit card handy, swipe, take
