I was there in 2014 and I thought I showed up around noon or little after and it seemed like people had been there for hours. Is noon the absolutely earliest they will let us in?

We line up on the road and walk up and down the line of cars until someone opens the gates and lets us move in....but yes, noon is about when the open it up.
There are a few parking lots down the road that many have had a pre-parking gathering at. Keep an eye on the "Who is Going" threads.
And who says jello shots cannot be enjoyed at 9:00 AM???

Was on right at 10.....

Took about a minute to process and the only thing that was available was resale.

Now we need to play the wait it out game. :roll: :lol:

I'm not going to this show but after I got my Charleston ticket, I tried for one for West Palm just for laughs. I came up with sec. 1, row U and threw it back. Tried again and got sec. 1, row P. Tried a third time and got sec. 2, row T. Now it says "We are unable to process your request."
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

LIPH, that's like hitting the lottery. I was working off my phone, and computer. and my wife on another computer and her phone. and the best we got was in sec. 1. and that was the ONLY time any tickets came up in the front sections. I'm so sick of these third party sites and brokers and these robots, and the fees. Well least I got some, looking forward to Vegas, April 1st and now West Palm Beach! Fins Up!

Go over to Ticketmaster and see what they have. I have always waited a few days after the mad rush and gotten great seats once they let some of them go back.
Good luck and see you out there.

We have hotels booked for all three shows now. We might pass now since this one is a Tuesday. Thanks for the offer.

Hi all.

I live in New York. Will be visiting the Tampa area May 10 to 16. Booked this long before shows were announced..
Don't really want to do an indoor Orlando show on Saturday. My question is this ....
How is the West Palm Beach tailgate?? Is it all day ? Is it one where the gates open at 4pm ?
Is it worth the hassle of changing my plane tickets (scheduled for Tuesday morning) and adding another hotel night plus the 4 hour or so drive ???

Thanks John

Tailgating on Tuesday we will still push the gates open around noon time. Wide open parking for tailgating and a good venue all around.
It is not quite the same as Tampa, but is still a great time.
And if you don't want to go into Orlando for the show - swing by and park in the garage and wander about for the tailgating there as a warmup!

We did WPB a few year's back for a Saturday show. It was def a later arriving crowd. We got there around noon when the gates opened and the lot really didn't start filling up until about 5. Between noon-4-ish you could have walked the whole lot 20 times over and seen everything. This may sound weird but around 2-3pm we actually started to get bored with the limited tailgating. But once the lot filled up around 5 the few hours after that the tailgating was great and the venue itself is also good.
