Getting on the rail -- How early?

lyons707lyons707 Posts: 2

Looking for suggestions on how early I would need to get to Seattle Venue to get on the rail.  I have general admission tix for August 8 and want to maximize my chances to be up front.  Coming in from PA for both Seattle shows -- super stoked!! 

Any help would be awesome.

Thanks

    Agreed. Definitely the day before. To be safe, I’d say early in the morning the day before especially because people are flying in from all over for these few shows.  Funny thing is, even if u get there in the morning the day before; u still won’t be first in line:)

    I wouldn't be surprised if people wait outside during night one in order to be rail for night two.

    In other words, two simultaneous lines.

    Really, a few days before the show? I am not being sarcastic, I am just curious. I was going to line up very early the morning of the show. I am arriving Tuesday from just outside Toronto and want to see the sights and scenery.

    Me personally id enjoy the sights and the food. Being crushed up against a rail isnt my idea of fun these days but i do remember the thrill.  Do what seems the most fun.

    In all honesty there will already be lots of people in line from the night before. Impossible to know how many will already be there and not sure how big the stage and rail is for this show, but u definitely won’t be first in line getting there early morning the day of. I’m usually about 3-4 people back from the rail on mikes side and I just walk in about 90 minutes before the show and enjoy the city all day. Good luck

    It seems like its well past time for the 10c to move to control the GA admission process.  The waiting in line arms race is out of control.

    The practice is banned by Ten Club, anyway.  The "list" does not exist.

    It was a real thing apparently by stalkerish types.  Crypt keepers.  Hopefully no one ever listened to those fools.

    op if the show is august 8 I would think you would have to get in line probably the night of aug 6th or very very early aug 7th to get rail.  Good luck!

    No, it wasn't about seniority or a prank. It was a real thing made up and enforced by psychotic fans ... but it was really, really ridiculous and unfair, which is why 10C finally said it wasn't allowed anymore a few years ago.

    Yes a goat.  I can't explain it.  

    Damn thing showed up and sat next to me and insisted to be put on the list.

    Demetrios went to go in front of the goat and the sumbitch headbutted Demetrios.

    This goat ain't no joke and I'm glad it's cool with me.  I let him eat my bag from lunch so we are good.

    It doesn't sound real haha. Made up by fans??? You mean people like you and me? So how did it work, if you weren't as big of a fan as somebody that person would pick you up and place you behind them? Was there a meter stick?
