Nothing outrageous, no mass casualty call. All that I saw from the incident reports were a bunch of protective custody arrests for drunkeness, confiscation of alcohol, EMS having some issues with people they were trying to treat & an odd one, dirtbikes riding around in one of the lots
It's the drunken behavior and alcohol in the parking lots that are resulting in later parking lot opening times for many shows at GW. Most of the upcoming shows have parking lot times of 3pm or 4pm, this includes weekend shows as well as weeknight shows

It's also the cost to pay the police to show up early.

Keep checking the LiveNation Xfinity site. There's a venue details link that has all the info. So far, they only have up to Incubus on 08/08.

Not sure as the parking lot times for the Buffett show have not been announced yet, the live nation page for GW only has the shows from 8/1 to 8/8 posted. Only one of those has parking lots opening before 3 and that is the Slipnot show on 8/4 which has parking lot time of 2:30 due the show have four music acts in total

They released 3 additional rows of seats in sections 9 and 15, the far back left and right sections of the over air pavilion AKA the seats on the lawn. Unfortunately the price is still $159.25 per seat. My guess is this was to gauge interest hoping people would bite at the chance to get seats together. If these don't sell they will almost certainly make the remaining seats in these sections a lower price.

Just wondering if anyone would like to take over my hotel reservation at the Holiday Inn in Mansfield. It's down the street from the Red Roof Inn. I am going to cancel it if no one wants it.
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Life is short, live long!!

I'd rather be a wiseass than a dumbass.
