The city owns the 140 acres of Lakewood including the amphitheater and parking lots. I'm guessing the city issues permits for the private parking lots so they get to control the game. What they don't own is you and me so we can start when and where we want (within the limits of the law, ehh-hem...) so people begin the party along Lakewood Avenue, along the side streets, and what-not. They finally get frustrated and open the gates. I was blessed out by a city of Atlanta police officer last year because I had parked with two wheels on the sidewalk so that I wasn't blocking traffic but he didn't want me in the pedestrian right-of-way so I pulled into the street and blocked it, he was fine with that.....

Just took a look at Googlearth maps of the amphitheater and parking lots. ScreenGems, the production studio that now occupies the old Lakewood fairgrounds, had a jet plane setup on the gravel lot in front of the grandstands. The low level photos, which appear to be newer considering the state of construction of a building on top of the grandstands, show the plane in pieces on flatbed trucks. Hopefully they won't have productions ongoing in June, I'd hate to have limited parking available.

I have to leave to go to work right as tickets go onsale. So, I went through a broker with a guaruntee. Bad spelling. I have my tickets for the show, my hotel room at the Travel lodge 2 miles from the venue, and cheap bus tickets from Mobile to Atlanta. I can't wait. My big birthday blow out and post divorce, reclaiming my life party. I need a tailgate party to join. Can't wait.

Lawn sold out quickly, but Live Nation is now selling Pavilion tickets at the lawn price ($36 plus fees).
