Has anyone here done a Meet and Greet for shows that were General Admission seating (i.e. Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ)? I am curious if you got let into the concert halls earlier where you could get to the rail (or the front) before the rest of the fans were let in. When I was at the Trenton show, the Meet and Greet ended and than VR came on like 10 minutes later. Since this was "seated" there was no issue with seeing the show. You pay for the seat and you can't lose your seat.

However, with the Borgata and some other shows, it's General Admission so I'm just wondering for those who did the Meet and Greet for GA shows, did you get screwed with your quote-unquote seats (aka spot where you stood and watched the show)?

One of the M&Gs I went to was GA.  Those of us at the M&G were allowed into the venue before the doors opened, and allowed to choose whereever we wanted to go.

I think it depends on what time the band gets there. At Scranton and Tampa we did not get out of the M&G until half way through AIC, so you had to work your way in. Are you thinking of doing the M&G at Nokia? I was thinking about it, but no one could answer my questions whe I called the box office. :?

Yea, I was thinking of that for the Nokia show next week. I feel like we'll be in the back. And also any of the STP shows I go to IF they do a Meet and Greet.
