So I wasn’t up front, but I also got there 5 hours later than the first people in line. There was a barricade between us and them once we got inside. But hey, I’ll take 20ish rows back in exchange for getting there at 6. And yes, it was, as one guy standing next to me said before it started – “The concert you compare all other concerts to for the rest of your life.”  22 songs and 2 and half hours later, I fully agreed.
