I swore if I ever went back I would get VIP, because I got stuck in line a couple times. The one year I went, it was a pain in the ass to plan on seeing a headliner in the Key Arena. This year they are going to run Memorial Stadium and KeyArena, so that might thin out the crowds a little.
I'm expecting quite a few people to be selling them for cheap this year. It's amazing that there are still a few fucktards posting them for $400 on Craiglist. Shit, you might be able to get a wristband at the gate this year.
