How difficult is it to accomplish such a task? Wouldn't security just pwn you if you come to close to ask for a pic?
any tips?

depends on the musician. some will be cool with it and do photo ops with the crowd, but usually if it's someone really famous, they tend not to...

edit: ^^he speaks the truth, though.

I have a picture of me with Godsmack. But it was a meet and greet before the show, so there was a few other people in the photo op. But I definitely grabbed Shannon's ass.

I'm going to see Eric Clapton on the 10th. If anyone has any ideas they should post them before then. I not only wanna test this for the TS but i really wanna meet Clapton and tell him how i can play "sunshine of your love".
PS, I'm 14 years old too so if anyone has any "help, wheres daddy" sort of ideas they're welcome too.

True. It's not the same thing as finding Joe over there on the street and getting your picture taken with him as it is with a famous musician though. Even though they're both just guys/girls.

Chances of meeting Clapton are virtually zero considering his age and the amount of fans who are already paying ridiculous amounts of money just for a seat.

i got pictures with Nick Hipa from As I Lay Dying and Oli from All That Remains. really nice dudes, they were stoked to take pictures. just treat them like NORMAL people, not famous people. act normal around them, dont be all like "omg omg omg!!!". thats annoying.

Well, that depends. Is Joe also a fantastic musician? If so, it's pretty much the same thing. I've had the opportunity to meet plenty of famous musicians in the past year, but the thing is I also know plenty of people around me everyday who are as good if not better. And when it comes down to it, I don't know these celebrities personally. I could admire their works, but what does that really require other than a spoken appreciation for the famous artists?

Who doesn't? But it becomes ridiculous and superficial when one goes out his way to get a photo or autograph for the sake of the touch of fame.

I agree with Xiaoxi.

For an autograph I don't care, for a jamsession i'd kill though, given it's an artist I like

Yeah, but I'd kill just the same for a session with the local STUDENT jazz pianist and jazz violinist that I saw perform on a modest stage for a standard recital. They blew me away.

Good point, really. I guess what matters isn't musical ability, it's more about the artist in question's fame. If Joe were an incredible musician and I'd get my picture taken with him, the 13 year old with a picture of her and the Jonas brothers would receive more appreciation for it. I guess that's not what matters either. It's more important how I feel about the picture myself.

Argh, now you got me thinking about everything .

Clapton? 0-none. No friggin way unless you break in back stage, knock out all of the security, get the 50 year old groupies out of his room and hold him at gunpoint. That is, if you catch him before he falls asleep. I mean, he IS getting old now.

Which is the issue I was addressing.

I guess, and I'd admit that the frequency of fantastic artists have definitely "desensitized" me in a way. But even before, it didn't matter that much. They're still just people. Amsterdam may not be known musically, but there's bound to be some great musicians in it.

Okay, what I said in that post did come across too self-centered. But the point I was trying to make is that it's still excessive to try to get a photo or an autograph just for the thought of having an interaction with a celebrity, because they're still just people. The only difference is that they have a bigger reputation than you and I.

After the show, go to the local airport. Follow the signs that say "General Aviation". Not a guarantee, but if he flew in he'll likely leave the same way. Google your local airport and look for FBOs (Fixed Base Operators), specifically the ones that sell JetA. You'll probably see names like Signature Flight Support, Piedmont, or Cessna (who also manufactures aircraft) They provide fuel and service for private and corporate aircraft. The security is nonexistent, other than a customer service girl asking if she can help you. Just sit in the lobby and pick up a magazine. I once worked for Atlantic Aero, loads of celebs all the time. Unfortunately, I was too busy loading their damn luggage while being screamed at by their manager to get much enjoyment out of it. In a big city, you may go to the wrong airport (Atlanta has over 20 within a twenty mile radius), and even if you get the airport right you may go to the wrong FBO, but it's decent odds, particularly if you don't look or act like a stalker who followed him there. Dress nice and leave the concert shirt in the car. Alcohol on your breath or loud swearing is bad, since most of the customers in there will be middle-aged wealthy white republicans. Anyone says anything, tell them you are thinking about taking flight training lessons and you just came to shop their books.

And take a four leaf clover and a horseshoe, because you are about to waste a lot of time if he rode a bus.

I think i'm in section 55. Its on the side. I got bronze tickets for 99.90. Platinum seats were 500 bucks i think. They warned my my view would be obstructed. So yeah, pretty much the worst seats in the whole arena. Better than yours though
