Down in Front!!! (Edited 03/18/11 10:32AM by ohwell_)
Read the Article: Down in Front!!!

Yes is my favorite band ever.   Superior musicianship, harmonies and lyrics you have to think about.
So we won tickets and backstage passes.  Sounds great right?    NOT
I actually went over the top of the seats to get someones attention to STFU!    SECURITY!!!!
Then we moved 10 rows back so we could hear the MUSIC.  The band thanked me laterDown in Front!!! <span style="font-size:12px;">(Edited 03/18/11 10:32AM by ohwell_)</span> Photo
So as I sulked and sipped my beer in my new further away seat, I knew i had to write a lil something.  Not all venues are the same.   This was not Lollapalooza type concert.  It was a small theater that only holds 1200

Anymore I just sneak in a booze filled flask to these concerts and sporting events and simply mix it with a soda i buy there. The cost of beer at these events these days is outrageous! ($9 for a 16 oz beer, are you f#%king kidding me?)

Just pee on the floor and miss none of the show... Now that is a real winner!

Backstage rules_ no kissing, hugging or shaking hands of the band members.
                                  No cell phones photos allowed.   No personal ?'s   Just meet and greet.
They have a photog at the ready    Benoit David put his head on my boobs for our photo.  Rob and I towered over them.  Good times.
Oh, and you should have seen the Yes Fan Club members.  Like a combo meal of Trekkiies, musicians and
really, really white people.

People are rude. 

Another thing I hate are those who have seats at the end of your row who make you let them through instead of going around to the other side. Is it really that hard to walk down and around to your correct seats? Also, those people who don't say "Excuse me"----they piss me off too.

I love hearing them words, what was the question?
#9 | 1126 days ago

Be real, treat them as you would want to be treated. F*ck em if they can't take a joke.

I've only been to Rock concerts and they tend to have a real raucous crowd anyways so I've never really experienced any of this stuff. But then again maybe I was too drunk to notice that I was being an a$$hole

My first concert Yes opened for Alice Cooper followed by the headliner Black Sabbath. The headliner sucked cause they were more loaded than anyone in the crowd. Back then it was general admission so the earlier you got there the better your seat. I did get to see Yes again as a headliner...great band!

1. by going to buy beer and use the restroom on the same trip, I won't drink as much and I will enjoy the concert more. Drinks after are better anyway.
2.  You are there to enjoy the concert not blab or take photos with your phone. Besides phone photos are not that great.
3. Give her a few tidbits about the band and after the concert let her tell you about what she thought. If it's good, then the night will be better. If it's bad, take her to her place,screw her and never call her again.
4. leave, a full bladder is a bad bladder.
5. buy your beer, find your seat and enjoy!

 The concerts I enjoy going to don't have seats usually, and pissing on the floor is a common occurrence. maybe one day I will graduate to sit down concerts- probably the time when i will have to sit down to pee, but thats a ways off

When I attend to concerts, generally I'm the only girl among a bunch of guys and If I have to go to the bathroon, I just go.Sometimes one of the guys walks with me and waits for me at the restrooms door, or if I see another girl around I tell her, I'm going to the bathroom, if you need to go we can go together (Now I see why men are always wondering why girls have to go to pee in pairs) Now I pay for a sit at the concerts, It's more comfortable to leave anytime or buy something to drink or eat, they just go to your seat. When I was younger I tried to be as near to the stage as I could, but of course there was always a lot of sick and freaky guys that obviusly don't know a thing about music and they just go to get drunk and/or high and try to touch your butt, fortunately that doesn't happen anymore, at least for me
