I have tried sooo hard to win tickets, then it hit me more and more each day, with my recent back surgery, what am I thinking? I need seats!! So I am giving in and buying reserved seating. I found a good deal, up front, but for only two nights. Now I am even more excited, but more broke!!:(
I am not to concerned about Friday as GA tickets, cuz not my favorite perfomers, just TY so that night I will hang out with the GA crowd and experience that side again.;)

Oh, but I am still gonna try to win em! I am NOT a quitter!!, I haven't quit drinking beer!
Maybe I can make some money off of those to offset the ones I am looking to purchase.
Paying for a seat is soooo worth it. If you break it down and go VIP all three days, total cost of 638.30 which includes all fees and whatever charges and divide that by seeing at least 20 acts in 3 days...that comes out to 32.00 per performance. I know I can see more performances than that and now including PBR which would cost a minimum of $40.00 per ticket....It's really such a deal. Most concerts I go to now cost a minimum of $55.00 per ticket (and that's for artists on the way up or the way down). Parking at the Greek is $20.00 and a double drink at the same venue is $16.00. Parking at Nokia is now $25.00!!!

Yeah, I am looking to buy two awesome up close tickets for sat and sun, and then just buy a GA ticket for Friday for what it would cost to get 3 seats thru TM and way in the back.
I know I would be happy sitting, with my back and all, but it just hate the thought of the money side of it. Last year we had GA and I was pretty close. I am an ansy person, and want to dance, having to stand in front of one seat is gonna be tough on me...sorry for the person behind my butt (at least it isnt huge..hehehe)
I danced and sang in front of my seat all day and night long and nobody said anything. They better have not for the money I paid! Now that I think of it I danced and sang in front of all the stages I visted and no one said a word. They knew I was having fun and I hoped they were too. It's all one big party....just because you pay for a seat doesn't mean you have to sit in it. It just like all concerts you go today.

Oh I will be dancing all night, but I probably wont be in my seat during Big and Dumb or Rascal Fats, I will go and visit the other stages.
I remember last year, I was walking all over, the bands were awesome, with this years line up, looks like I will be at the mane stage for most of it. Good one way, and bad the other.
Until they post the line-up on each stage you just never know who will be on the mane stage. I mean come on WILLIE NELSON, KRIS KRISTOFFERSON not mane material. It just gives me more exercise walking all around.
