    We’re gonna show up around noon I think. We’re both real short so we need to get up close or it sucks. Weather is supposed to be sunny and 96.

    FYI for day after, If you’re a people watcher, the OK state fair is going right now. It provides some of the best people watching I’ve ever experienced.

    Also driving in from Texas. Should be there around 1pm or so to see the merch and get a late lunch. 😊
    drivingrl: "Will I ever get to meet Gwen Stefani?"
    kevinbeetle: "Yes. When her career washes up and her and Gavin move to Galveston, you will meet her at Hot Topic shopping for a Japanese cheerleader outfit.

    Next!"

    In pit make friends with neighbors because when you gotta pee they will let you back to your spot

    dont let your friends sneak into line with you or you will start a riot. But again get to know your neighbors for pee, merch and food breaks

    watch out for this short latina chick who will worm her way into your spot and then harass you for the entire concert that she was there first even though you watched her arrive and worm hole in. She’s a repeat offender. 

    rock out!

    They could be diff.  These in OKC area are managed by a local restaurant group.  Just checked there websites = same.

    I used to live up the road from you when I was a little one.  Lived in Kokomo in the 70's.  I miss summers that aren't blazing hot, but don't miss snow up to my bum.

    thanks - sounds like the basic "dont be an ahole".  Also, suppose no way of really knowing, but if you don't get there until doors open, how close generally can you expect to get?  I have a height challenged spouse :)

    If she was in Nashville on Stone's side, then my wife was dealing with her part of the evening. She kept bumping into her as well, which didn't make the situation any better.

    Man I wish I knew her TC number cuz she would be on blast. Last time, She literally sat on my gf’s feet. After a few choice words my gf proceeded to put her knees into the chicks back for 30-45 min until she got up and moved behind us and tried to harass us the whole show. My normally very quiet and polite gf was not having it. Even my daughter told her to take a chill pill. She kept hitting my back and yelling in my ear about it’s her spot etc, I told her the more angry and unhappy she got, the more I enjoyed it…lol. Regulars all around us were telling me she does it all the time.  Self entitled psycho I guess

    Flew in from the STL show on Monday morning.  Checked into the Courtyard Marriott next to the arena and then immediately went searching for where to line up for GA.  This was my first Ten Club GA experience and I wanted to do it right.  Outside the arena I ran into a couple who also were at the STL show and later another couple who had been in town since Saturday.  Around 1pm the folks at the arena notified us where to line up, and the rest is history.  I got wristband #5 and was able to set up shop on the rail right in line with Ed's mic.  I do not know if I will ever be able to better that experience.
