ok so I am going to a NIN concert in 2 weeks, and the tickets I have are freaking horrible. I plan on trying to get onto the floor standing area by sneaking in. It's an indoor hockey stadium, any tips, and don't give me the stay in your seat nonsense, I've done that my whole life, it's time to bend the rules.

You're going to have a very hard time accomplishing that. Security is a bitch when they ask for your tickets.

But what you could try to do is find a somewhat big crowd of people going to the floor, and walk right behind them, and hope that the security doesn't try to check your ticket figuring you are with all of them.

This.

Or..get better tickets next time?


..sorry
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

Just try it, if they catch you, just pretend you are confused and you were under the impression you had floor tickets. They'll just send you where you're supposed to be.

is it on the floor, and more importantly are they standing or seating, because if it's standing I have a chance, if it's seated I'm screwed

ive seen people try, the security straight up tackled him to the ground, punched him a few times, and dragged him outside
your best bet is walking to where you get into the floor, bring some cash, and pay one of the guards, theyll let you onto the floor if theyre having a good day, ive done this a couple times, once they didnt even take the money, they just let me though

At large concerts I usually get into the standing area by going to the entrance nearest the stage (where it will be most crowded inside) and make a dash past security and try and disappear into the crowd
I've never been caught so I can't say what the consequences will be though
ohai little sig.

it's super easy get the closest you can to the floor and jump over the ''fence'' dont know if you understand..... the best seats are on the board get there end jump over them thats it

i was thinking, if anyone has the ticketmaster online thing with floor seats, could you help me out. Send me the image of the ticket without your barcode and name of course so I can photoshop a ticket so I can use my real ticket to get in then a fake one to get on the floor.

put on very tight, black spandex, grow some stubble, and put on a helmet with three bright green lights shining on your forehead. Then very sneakily shoot the guards with tranquilizer darts, or shock them with a tazer gun, or just straight up shoot them, then sneak along the shadows until you make it inside. No one will ever notice. I promise.

Why is it the SC guards never notice those lights? Sure, they look really cool and all, but when you've gone to the trouble of blacking up, why would you spoil it by lighting up your forehead with three dots of green neon?

That's bull****. They may be guards but that's straight up assault.

Won't work. I've seen people jump the barrier and make a run for it, and they ended up on the floor... With a security guard on top of them.
#27
get to know the venues security. just talk to them before and after the gigs, if you get to know them you can try your luck,

that or get to know the band, but well. not just myspace. abnd join a street team. tho more then likely its backstage, which is better.

Yeah the best idea is to act disappointed

Just like walk in as in its just a floor ticket, when they ask to see it and say its seated just go like "Awww! The auction said it was floor tickets " And walk away looking kinda sad. If he's a nice guy he might let you in.
#30
Do it when the band comes on, and the lights go down. Just jump the barrier, but you gotta do it quick. Once you're in the crowd, you're basically safe.

EDIT: I like the suggestions of "getting to know the security guards" and trying to make them feel sorry. As if that would work. Not to mention it's a long and tedious job. Just jump the boards man.

Its easy when youre an attractive female. Bitches and their large boobs....

Security just lets hot chicks in usually, but if youre a dude you just gotta find an opening and go. If its an indoor stadium maybe thers some access halls or something leading to the front?

What I do is, in between songs I look around for gaps and go through them. It helps if you're used to large crowds. The furthest I've been away from a band is about 20 feet.
