Please address line restrictions, anyone...

Hiya. Just wigging out a tad. So we are oh 70 miles from Vegas all ready to sit and wait in line for the 1130 show, but last night I was told no lines.

I read they did this in SFO too. How did it work? What is the tactic to get up front? I'm willing and able to put in the time.

Private message if u don't want to tell the world. Secret's safe with me!


Thanks!

The second night in SF people formed a line slightly away from the club, despite all the warnings. The first night, people heeded the warnings. On wednesday we got there when the line was supposed to start at nine and were toward the back. We still snagged a great vantage point.

So this is what we did. got to the DNA at about 4:30pm to pick up tics for late show. Did some PI research while there and found a virtual line that was already forming up to number 20. so we were virtual numbers 21 and 22. so when we got to the line at about 8:30, there was 100 people in line so far, however, the girls who started the virtual line were kind enough to let us slip in at number 21 and 22. Prince fans are awesome. Just bring something to the party. It's all good.......and whatever you do, don't get stuck in a spot without any water. Cuz you'll be sweating it all out, I know I did... Hydrate my friend.....

It was actually pretty cool. Got tix at 6. At 6:30 they had a woman passing out raffle tickets (numbered stubs like at a carnival)
And you come back at 9:30 to the prince room (with a bar and seats, music- p and funk) and they call u to line up inside by 10s. So- 12300- 12309 and u take ur ticket, show your real ticket too and get in line.

No cuts, if u missed the call oh well.

So we left at 6:35 and did some more Vegas and came back at 9:30. They started calling numbers maybe 20 minutes later. We were 20th in line and once inside- 2nd row standing center stage.

Pretty awesome.

Also awesome- the tall guy I was behind who didnt complain that I bumped him often to get a peek to his left or right when P moved out of my sight.

Cool as well was a group of older gentlemen who let a couple have their front row spots so they could all stand together a few feet back.

I love P fams.

Who said so?

'security'? lol

Police? (WTF!?)

Or?

Of course they do want disorderly groups hanging around and not nice quiet, managable lines of people eager to enter.

So I would net yet understand why anybody would be against people lining up.
