Love the cheap seats. But this year I may have to re-think my strategy.

I should write a note on my forehead before I go to bed tonight so when I look in the mirror when I'm shaving tomorrow morning I'll remember tickets go on sale. If a non-BN friend hadn't called me about 10:45 yesterday morning to ask how I did in the ticket buying frenzy, I wouldn't have remembered to try for Great Woods tickets. I hadn't even logged on to my computer to check my email yet and I had totally forgotten tickets were going on sale.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

Great venue, the stage pretty much sit in the water and during the show you can smell the salt air. The tailgating is so-so, cops are really strict and the cars are mixed in with people who are just going to the beach. But tailgating is subjective so you may like it.

Actually, there is always alot of talk about strict cops, but the times i've been there, everyone seems to be able to drink and play as they wish. I've heard that the park cops like the Buffett fans because they dont fight or cause trouble, unlike those of many other rock groups.....

Our favorite venue by far with GW taking a close 2nd. Great tailgating, beautiful scenery, and the smell of salt in the air (among other things 8) )!

I don't know where you park but the cops are great -we put blow up sharks on their cars , leis around their necks & trust me if they could drink while on duty they would join us with that !!!!

I'm glad to see I'm not totally crazy - the one year I was there, only one lot had any action at all. There were scattered people here and there with grills set up etc but nothing like the set ups I've seen at other venues. But yes, having the water behind the stage is special. We were unlucky enough to run into some really rude asshats during the concert as well, they didn't stop talking once and my friend actually got pee'd on.
GW - 7/19

Jones Beach is my absolute favorite venue. Been going to shows there since I was a kid (when dinosaurs roamed the earth). Sitting in the seats with the salt air breeze wafting through the venue is wonderful!

I don't think it was sold out. But I had problems getting a pair of tickets. Ended up buying 2 separate times. And not seated together.
