NFT: Anyone going to see the Misfits this weekend at Prudential?

Don in DC : 5/16/2018 12:19 pm
I'm going with a friend. However, I am pretty bummed by this whole phone situation, where anyone bringing a phone into the venue will have to submit to having it locked up in some sort of secure bag for the entire time in the venue, and will have to have venue employees unlock it when they are leaving.

I am picturing the lines of thousands of people waiting to have phones unlocked at the end of the show. In my imagination, it's a pretty fucking ugly scene. Anyone else ever dealt with this situation before. How bad was it?

Regardless, excited to see the original lineup (or as close to it as you can get, anyway). They broke up when I was 12 years old, and I never thought I would get a chance to see the real thing live.
Why not just leave your phone

in car or at home and skip the line?
That's the current plan.

I had intended to take the train to the show, but with the whole phone situation, we are now planning to drive and leave the phones in the car.
Id either not take my phone

should be an awesome show.

Suicidal tendencies should be good too.

I'd live without a phone to see that, hopefully you don't get caught up long lines getting in, some jackasses can't be without a phone for 5 seconds.
I agree with the concept in principal

but I've never actually experienced it as a patron. I'm also curious to hear what the logistic ramifications are.
Sounds like Glenn Danzig

Saw him do a show and he stopped mid sing when someone snapped a photo with their phone
I saw the Misfits in Vegas at the end of last December

It was the same deal. You had to have your phone locked up in a little bag - it is indeed a Danzig thing.

Wasn't a big deal there. There were a ton of employees to unlock phones. I will admit, though, that we stuck around for a while to hit up the t-shirt stand so it might have been pretty slow if you were trying to leave right away.

The show was fantastic, every bit as amazing as I had dreamed. They played just about everything and sounded great. Enjoy!
I mean, seriously, I've been a Misfits fan since middle school

I waited 30 years for that show and I was not disappointed, not one bit. I was worried that the anticipation meant that it couldn't help but be a letdown, but I was wrong.
Should be highly entertaining

Murphy's Law opens. One my favorites in the mid 80s. Suicidal the greatest of all! I must confess to never being a huge Misfits fan but looking forward to seeing them as well.
A lot of bands do this now

Although at a Misfits show, they should let you get one last caress
