I scored my first ever GA tickets for Wrigley Night 2.  How early should I get in line for front row?

    You will likely need to camp out 1-2 days prior to the show.

    In all seriousness, if you want rail, you are probably going to have to camp out starting Wednesday at the latest.

    I thought there was a no lining up rule until 8AM day of show?

    Where did the unofficial line start in 2016? Where the fan who was the first one and wanted to hear Release for his dad.
    Does anyone know what street that was on?
  • Waveland. Runs east to west behind the bleachers.
  • How do they work that for people waiting for Saturday?  Is there two lines?

    Usually there isn't someone that will wait 4 days before a show 
  • Come on guys. Can I get a consensus? I am gonna get there around 8AM day of show.  It's my son Stone's second show.  We we're in the 200s in 2016.  
  • I was three deep in front of Mike last night, got to the field about 5pm. I understand the commotion surrounding Wrigley, I’ve been there, rail twice. I would not spend all day long in que. but that’s just me.

    You'll see the line if you get there at 8a. For Foo Fighters, it was in the parking lot across the street from the Bleachers entrance at Sheffield and Waveland. I'd expect the same spot for PJ.

    How did you get 3 deep showing up at 5pm?  We got there around 4pm (and got in before 5pm) and it was about 10-12 deep from Mike's Mic to Stone's mic?

    In regards to the original post... I think you have to lineup a few days early to get rail.  It's mental.  Even Eddie said something about it at the show last night when he found out the people on the rail had been waiting for 2 days :)

    Wrigley is an unknown... I know people lined up unofficially but that was on a residential street and no idea if the neighbors complained to cause tighter rules.

    Getting the rail is tough, but you can be ridiculously close if you are in line the morning of - seems like there’s an extreme drop off of time waiting for rail to 3-5 people from the stage.

    I figure if I line up around 3 I should be within 10 rows hopefully

  • I have a N2 seat for Wrigley.  I'm looking into flying in early to catch N1.  If anyone has a spare GA for N1, please hit me up via DM.  I know it's not likely, but it's worth a shot.  Thanks.

    I know someone who camped our for two days and was front and center in front of Ed yesterday. 

    I know another person who went in about 5 and kept going outside til there was room... and was on rail about 8 people from end on Mike's side.  I'm GA and won't wait all day, will likely find a side view I'm OK with.
