So to day I just found out that Kreator and Exodus are coming to my city in April (HOLY SHIT), but their playing a venue that is almost always no minors.
Here in Alberta your considered a minor till your 18, and Im 16, I'll be 17 at the time though.
But do you have any suggestions on how I should try and get in?

Thanks

You're gonna be in some trouble unless you can secure a fake ID or someone who looks similar to you and is only slightly older...or if you sneak in? But that isn't usually a good idea- might get kicked out and not see anything if you do that..maybe sneak in only as a last resort if you can't get ID.

Create a machine that can speed up the aging process so you turn 18 faster. Just make sure you remember to turn it off, or reverse the effect or you may end up like 93 or something.
grok it.

How about you realise the concept of 'tough shit' and wish your parents conceived you a year earlier. I had to wait, and so should you.

what? **** that! if kreator and exodus came to my town and played an adult show, i wouldn't miss it for anything. plus, sulking around when you could do something about it isn't very metal. sneak in dude, unless you can find a fake id, which is useful in many more ways than this...

I am over 18, I can go wherever the hell I please. I missed out on many great shows when I was under and I think he should suck it up and wait till he is old enough, instead of having a cry that he can't go to shows, which isn't very metal either.

I went with a big group of people who were 21, and while they're IDs were being checked, I snuck behind them, out of the view of the ticket dude.

Be 18.

Thanks to everyone who said something positve

And to everyone who said to wait a year, these two bands are both from the early 80's so who knows if I'll ever get another chance to see them after this.

Borrow the ID of a friend who is 18 and has the same coloured skin as you.
Quote by BeefWellington

what's the point in being "philiosophical"?

Interesting question...
#18
Ok, Pay a group of people to sneak you in, preferabley you know them. Wear Black and longsleeve chothing. nothing that exposes much skin.
Music is an art form that celebrates potential. So long as you're looking for it, you'll always find it.

Just because you're a pussy doesn't mean he has to be.
What's the fun in being a kid if you're not gong to break the rules, now that I can do everything, yeah it's fun, but there it's nothing like sneaking into places/using a fake id, drinking/blazing in public etc, nothing is new anymore.
Why shouldn't he get to have fun?
#20
just borrow the ID of a friend who kinda looks like you and you should be fine. most of the time as long as you present them with a Id that says your 18 they normally dont care.
#21
Turn up early, before they're ticketing and checking ids, so they're asking cover charge from 8PM, turn up at 7, and avoid dealing with security. If you chat to the opening band, you can often get in when they're loading as well, and just stick close to them at sound check so you look as though you're meant to be there. When my brother was under 18 we used to do that, and even when when the cops raided the place, they left us alone because we looked like we were supposed to be there.

The 18+ rule on venues is really ****ing stupid, and if you want to be involved in the live scene (and this is Ultimateguitar after all so I assume you do) you're going to have to get good at getting around this crap. There's always one member of the band who's not quite 18 yet it seems.

So you think meeting them at the back when their loading in could get me in?

Since I'm still bitter that Kreator and Exodus aren't touring Britain together, I will offer you no such advice on how to get into the show, instead I wish you a painful and ironic death.

Umm whoever recommended sneaking in while they're checking a bunch of other people's ID's...definitely wouldn't do that. I tried that once to get into a bar before I was 21 and the bouncer grabbed me back by my purse then there was no chance in hell I was getting in. And if they'll do that to a girl they definitely aren't going to let a guy sneak in like that. If you look old enough you might not get ID'd...and come on I used my older sister's ID many times before I was of-age and we don't look that much alike. You must know at least one person or someone's older brother that you can pass off as you. I think every underage person has to have that experience of using someone else's ID. And love the McLovin response. Classic.

Pay for my ticket, and I'll come down to calgary and get you in.
