First time I've seen at capacity.
I agree. Don't know how well it will do if that's the route, but it seems this all attempts at crowd-control.
From a crowd control aspect I think it could be ideal if it's free for AP holders until 7 and the free for FL residents after 8 or 9. That 8PM time period is when it gets real crazy.
Mardi Gras a hard-ticket event? Can't they just go back to getting some less relevant acts again? They don't need Taylor Swift and the Stones.
Mardi Gras as a hard ticket event I think will lose some appeal for having an AP pass. Prior to kids this was one of the way I got DH to agree to a Uni pass was all the free concerts we could go to. I think you start limiting stuff like this and it could hurt AP sales. Also, free parking should be free parking. Stopping it on certain nights after a certain period of time could get pretty confusing and cause it to slow things down. I mean you pull up, assume you get free parking, and then all the sudden you don't. Then you may not want to pay and how do you turn around? Just gets really confusing.
Totally, the FOB night also showed that the performance area they currently use is in no way suitable for acts of that clear popularity to use as a ticketed event.
Remember when you guys complained about the musical acts they got for Mardi Gras and thought the line-up was by and large "meh"; for what technically is a "free" concert (assuming most of you have AP's.)
Can't have your cake and eat it too, guys.
I never complained about the line up Free is free to me. I don't complain about the Sea World bands either. Again, free is free. I really enjoy the Mardi Gras atmosphere and parade. It would be a very sad day if this went to a paid event. I wouldn't pay for it since we don't stay for the whole concert. It would never be worth the money for us. We watch the parade, get food, listen to music, and leave.
There's two sides to it in my mind. Yeah, it would be a shame to lose a "free" event, but I'm intrigued by what they may add to it in the process of creating a hard ticket event.
I totally agree
