    I had floor tickets for the Cleveland show in October and showed up at 8:15 pm and felt like I could have gotten anywhere on the floor if I really tried. At one point I just casually walked to probably 10-15 feet away from the stage barricade.

    Boggles my mind when people line up for shows before doors open. People move around between sets, get drinks, go to the bathroom, go smoke. I almost always show up to shows 20-30 minutes before the headliner and never have a problem getting a very good spot on the floor and again, if I desired, could easily get extremely close to stage if not all the way up front.

    Boggles my mind too. I’ve been to sold out shows before where you can barely move but have been able to move up and get a good spot. You can always get a good spot if you show up around doors or even after doors. The more I think about it the more weirded out I am that someone would actually spend 4-5 days standing/sitting outside a venue (and sleeping, which is extremely dangerous no matter where you are). If I did that I would honestly feel like I am not only wasting a whole day but that I should be doing something more important or valuable with my day.

    I guess people need to decide what they value more...getting there at a normal time and potentially sacrificing being 10-15 feet away from the stage vs sacrificing hours/days worth of their time to be in the very first row.

    I don't get it personally, but to each their own.

    I'm also old and don't like people and like to stand where I'm not being swarmed and where I can easily get drinks/go to the bathroom if I have to.

    huge all time low fan

    Usually when I camp for twenty one pilots shows, We schedule bathroom breaks, times we should go to restaurants/fast food places and usually there's someone in line that would let us use a hotel shower. We brush our teeth in public restrooms and I actually sleep good in the tents most nights. I've not had one time that I camped out for a show and had a bad experience or even remotely felt uneasy or sick. It's all just been good times + you'll meet new friends! I do however agree that if the fanbase wasn't this crazy, I wouldn't be camping. I just want to be barricade for my favorite band.

    I'm going to Pittsburgh tonight and I'm on the floor. I'm showing up after the opener and I'm 100% sure I can be dead center with a great view. Maybe it's because I'm tall and can see over everyone but I've never ever found a reason worth camping out days before a show.

    The Pittsburgh show was incredible. Easily in my top 5 favorite concerts ever. I loved the setlist. Better than the Cleveland show last fall. Sad to see people not knowing Vessel songs but I understand. Glad they play a few from it.
