    After scanning your Mobile tickets, did you get a printed paper/ticket with your seat info?
    No, but if you were on the floor you got this wristband. GA wristband was orange and looked alittle different.

    Thanks,

    But, i don't understand why they don't do that. Have to show your phone on your way to your seat. 

    I wonder if every Stadium will do this? I've only been to one show where i had a Mobile ticket and was given a printed paper/ticket. 
    Doing that would take more time and just seems like a waste of paper, doesn't it? Why would the value in printing tickets out when you're scanned be, from their perspective?
    I  didn't know  they gave you  a printed ticket  at the Venue when i had my Mobile ticket scanned, and before i walked through the turnstile the guy handed me a printed ticket with all of  my seat location. It printed in a snap.

    I showed up at 5:45. Got merch (45) minutes or so then went to go down on the field and was turned around to get a wristband. The table was easy to find. It was really not that bad. My wife and I had no problems. She did have a small purse that was apparently still too big. My advice with checking a bag is ho to the table to the right pay $10 and get a white band. The line was much shorter for the white wristband to reclaim belongings.

    Why spend all the: time, effort, money and not get to the stadium at least 2-3 hours early? You snooze you lose.

    Yeah, I've seen it done too. I just don't see the point. Why waste the paper when you don't have to?

    Entered through gate to left of Griffey statue, waited 5 mins in line at 6:20.  Had to go get wristband, but otherwise was a breeze.  The new ticketing system is actually pretty great.

    I keep all my stubs too, but not little bits of thermal paper. Just real hard tickets. I guess I'm a ticket snob. :lol:

    I had no choice but to keep thermal ticket paper. The OCD in me would not let me throw that out. Better then nothing, i guess.

    Because thermal paper loses print over time (no matter whether in light or not) you may want to make a back up copy on traditional paper.

    Not U2 Vancouver level... but really bad.



    what gate and what time was this??  I Breezed through the right field gate at about 5:45, literally no wait. Tickets scanned no problem, wristband no problem.  Just curious
    This was around 715 or so. And it was like this at every gate- I think this one was Center Field, but I could be mistaken.

    Things were dicey. Nobody was moving. We stumbled into the right 'clump' that got funnelled into the rails. There were a lot of people getting no anxious.
    This pic is good representation of what I saw at 7:30p. Walked around pretty much the whole stadium and it looked like a mess. We ended up going into the right field entrance (per tickets) and there was a shorter line seemingly just for GA. That took maybe 10 minutes and I scanned all three tickets right from Apple Wallet and they did not ask for ID and they gave us all wristbands right there. I've been to a ton of shows (though none at a ballpark) and this was the worst line situation I've seen. I was not at the U2 Vancouver show. As several others have said, most all of this can be avoided by arriving earlier. 
    Ha, maybe it's by design. Get people to show up 3 hours early so they can spend their evening leading up to show time buying their $8 beers and $25 concession meals. ;)

    I laughed at the 10c email how the show was STARTING AT 7:30 this time and blaming the delay on the crowds. It wouldnt have mattered if everybody was in the stadium at 7, the techs were still setting up the stage at 8:15 lol

    No, but if you were on the floor you got this wristband. GA wristband was orange and looked alittle different. 
    Night 2 ga wristband sucked, just blue, didnt say anything about PJ or home shows on it.
