Building  a mini-mothership?

Got it from a guy down there who was walking around and talking to some guys who worked at the venue…

The art is going to be part of a pretty elaborate secruity set up to prevent gate crashing..

Basically there is going to be a facade as seen in the pictures followed by a holding area

From what I was told

They will pat down say 100 people at a time…Have them enter a holding area after physically showing someone their ticket, once there you will give your ticket, get it scanned and enter the venue.

Once the “holding area” is cleared they will allow another group of people through to the holding area and repeat process.

This will allow a buffer I guess and avoid bum rushing and catapaults over the ticket…

The dude my buddy spoke with said that “a few hundred” private secruity people will be there are well…Probably the same company the band used at Festies…

Take it for what its worth…Instead of just having “pens” the band probably thought why not at least make the front entrance into a bit of a piece of art…

  4. I feel like a little kid right now. I will not even be there, but am super excited. In a funny twist of events, my wife and toddler will be out of town this weekend, so staying up until 4am to download and hear the shows after they drop is actually reasonable!

  5. I thank George Bush for making this whole Phish thing possible! Well, him and my alter-ego Fenton.

  6. Leaving from upstate NY in order to arrive a day early and feel out the surroundings. I’m totally psyched!

  7. I’m pretty sure I’m going to have a seizure when I see them in StL. I’m so damn excited, I just can’t hide it…just like Jessie Spano on caffeine pills. P.S. The Clifford Ball DVDs are freakin’ sweet!!…check ’em out.

  8. I hope you all get splashed really hard in the face by trey masturbatory guitar solos. These shows will suck. The band doesn;t give a shit about its fans anymore. And you shouldn’t give a shit about the band.

  9. They just released the clifford ball dvds becuzz these hampton shows are going to be that good!!! I’m in a hotel in hampton and i can’t sleep cuz its phishmas eve!!
