    You don't want to know . . .
    The practice is banned by Ten Club, anyway.  The "list" does not exist.
    Ahh I understand now. A seniority prank.
    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.
    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? 
    Oh, it was a real!

    So can you explain this a bit further. Fans waited in line based on some list of who arrived first? Who or what determined who was on the list and who was not?

    That's where it gets dicey.  You'd have to read it as it was a big deal.

    I’m dropping off my 20 month old two days before to hold my spot.  She’ll have lots of diapers in a bucket next to her, with wipes and a bag of old bread crusts and some water. Anybody who fucks with her is gonna have to deal with me, when I get there two days later.  Thanks.
    I had a false belief I thought I came here to stay. We're all just visitors.

    Goat???
    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.
    If the goat is your plus 1 then it needs to show up when you do and stay in line, only to leave line to take quick piss breaks or eat grass, or I’m sure there’s gonna be some trouble...

    I'm Me first.  The Gimmie gimmies are my +1.

    I have no idea who this goat is.  It might be from the thread that lolobugg posted.

    All i know is it don't take no lip and don't take no shit.  Try jumpin the line and the goat is gonna regulate your ass.

    You've been warned...

    For Cincy 2014, my husband and I were in line at noon. We were on the rail- kind of further in on Stone's side.  (Click my avatar if you want to know where.) EV sang right in front of us and I enjoyed some of the wine. I was good with where we were at and we didn't overnight for it.

    You don't want to know . . .
    The practice is banned by Ten Club, anyway.  The "list" does not exist.
    Ahh I understand now. A seniority prank.
    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.
    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? 
    Oh, it was a real!
    http://community.pearljam.com/discussion/242017/the-line-and-the-list
    So can you explain this a bit further. Fans waited in line based on some list of who arrived first? Who or what determined who was on the list and who was not?
    I think basically someone starts to compile a list.... then certain people are allowed to leave and somehow maintain their 'spot'.  Also, mystery people would appear on the list who were never there at all.

    Had anyone tried to enforce this list bullshit since tenclub brought the hammer down?  I remember seeing a pretty instense altercation unfold in the seattle ‘13 line

    Europe 2014 was full of it. Some of US 2014 had it until the announcement. NA 2016 none of that happened as far as I know. EV Firenze 2017 they had the list out but I did not see people abuse it too much aside from leaving for awhile after camping out overnight. I heard on Facebook that the cancelled Lollapalooza show had this happening too. I am guessing that some shows in Europe will have this again though I hope not.

    Why would someone even listen to those people?  I dont understand.  
    I've gone to Chuck Sperry events and there is ALWAYS a guy/person with a list.  The owners of the gallery actually like getting a list and they call you in to purchase by that list.  It works great and I was not a fan upon hearing it at first but it was nice to know that I was aware of the 5 people in front of me and that they were there in queue with me and others.

    So I can see how it can work.
