Cool story with this one as I never bought a ticket when I should have then the floor tickets went up last minute to $450-500 to be up close and person in the pits. I rode my motorcycle down there on a hot day just to check out the scene. This venue was at Century Link Field which is a massive venue with grand stand seating around the center area. I maneuvered my way into the front entrance area early before the show started. I didn’t have a ticket to get past any of the gate keepers so I scanned the area for the weakest link on their staff. I spotted a chubby young kid in the far corner who looked of somewhat authority. I talked my way into convincing him to give me a floor wristband to go my favorite rock/metal band of all time (which it’s not my favorite but it made it more dramatic to sell) He gives me a free wrist band and I ended up watching the coolest solo-attended show I have seen to date. The Guitar noises ripped through the arena sending head bangers ball heads into a frenzy! Mosh Pits everywhere and everyone running wild like it was the end of the world. Enter the Sandman came on and people sort of remained calm for a quick minute and just bobbed their head to the song we all know all…Then when you heard the drums slam hard everyone went wild again! Great show.
