I thought this thread was going to be about having sex for the first time at a concert.

What I did when I seen MM back in July in London was,I arrived at 2pm outside the venue and waited with other fans and got front row,it's best to arrive early and chat to fans and make new friends,it makes queuing more enjoyable

-It seems the US dates have averaged $50-$60 yes (Some vary because of services charges, ect. but just dollar amounts)
-Getting to the venue early is definitely the way to go to get to the barricade, and hanging with Manson fans is always entertaining. Always.
-I've only seen a girl flash Manson once and it was at a large festival.
Unless you count Teena Byrd straddling the barricade and screaming "Daddy!" in my ear, chicks seem to be relatively calm for the God of Fuck these days in my opinion.

I'll be at Anaheim! Hope to see you there!

I go to shows all the time by myself! Not saying I'm not "lame" but... ;D
I will definitely be there, and I'm sure others from PM. You won't be by yourself for long.

It's not lame to see shows alone.
Prices vary from different venues.
Yes the women still flash their tits at Manson.
Mostly at outdoor shows though.
Now I miss Ozzfest all over again :(

Drugs and or alcohol is also not a bad thing to have before the show, just not enough to get you shitfaced. Just enough to lube the evening ;)

I went to my first 4 Manson shows by myself. Like, completely by myself not knowing a single other person who was going to be there, and it was fine. I've always been 100% sober (because I don't want anything to detract from or distort the show) and it was still fine. It's really easy to make friends in line because everyone is super friendly and excited, and you have at least some common ground. It's a really great experience, hanging out with some really interesting an generally cool people in line.

I probably shouldn't be giving advice on when to get to the venue to wait in line, because I'm that person who always wants to be one of the first five people to get there (omg that reminds me, Happy Birthday Tater!). So if doors are at 7pm, I personally would get there at 9 or 10am. Even that doesn't necessarily guarantee a spot on the barricade though because venue security can sometimes be weird about how they let people in, in that they let people in the front of the line in first but then everyone just sits inside another room in no particular reserved order and then then let everyone all at once into the actual venue/stage area. But typically it's whoever gets there first. There's really no need to get there in the AM though. I went to my second Manson show in Atlanta and got there at 4pm and was in the second row from the barricade. It also depends on how big the venue is. My actual non-rambling advice would be to get there at 1pm if you're dead set on being in the front row.

Chicks do still flash their tits at Manson, but I'm only thinking of my friends who do that and I don't think it's a common thing anymore. I just happen to be with those same friends at every show. <3

Well, I'll no longer be a 'concert virgin' as of January 30th. Assuming of course I get 1 ticket out of 2,193.

I do have one question. The venue in Hamilton (Ontario) is a theater so it's ALL numbered seating. So if I get one of the front row seats (which I'm aiming for), would it matter how early or late I arrive in line? I imagine people will be obliged to sit (stand) in their designated seat.

You've gotta be careful about that, though.

I've never personally been to the venue before so I wouldn't know about this specific case, but SOME venues have removable seating which is generally there but removed from the floor for certain events to make way for General Admission "mosh pit" floor space...yet they still sell the the tickets for "seats" so as to ensure they don't exceed the venue's maximum capacity.

If they're permanently bolted to the floor at the venue in question then obviously you're okay in this case, but it's still something to keep in mind as a general rule.

Just thought I'd mention it here to keep the thread a bit more broad-gauged in its usefulness.

Good luck and have fun!

Thank you for the input! It makes complete sense.

Toxica is also going to this concert and her sister called the Theater, and apparently there is no standing room.

Toxica: Ugh, so apparently there is NO standing room at this venue. My sister called the place and that's what she was told. What a crappy place to have a concert!

I just hope that the lady didn't know what she was talking about and they CAN remove some seating!

How the heck do you get presale passwords? Apparently the Hamilton show has a presale tomorrow.. it says facebook presale. I 'liked' it, but there is no info there.

Being from Australia, tickets are like $70-$80 here for a Manson show.
Some venues have only standing but some also cater for both, it varies depending on what venue you go to. Getting on barrier/front row is easy if you arrive early. I went to the venue at 8am once for a barrier spot and there were still a few people in front of me. The wait was actually quite fun, there's some really cool Manson fans to talk to!
Across the shows I've been to, there's been a few.

If you really want to brighten your day, check out her latest videos where she's impersonating Boy George and Elvis. I was LULZ so loudly I startled the cat, and that cat has pretty much seen and heard it all.

I guess i'll be seeing alot of people at the Anaheim show on February 20th. However, i live in San Diego and travel to LA/Anaheim/Pomona for concerts, has anyone been to the grove of anaheim (now its the city national grove of anaheim). I got the VIP PIT i wanted to know how that works out. i've seen pictures of the venue indoors and its kinda weird...
