Don’t wanna talk about it.
Terrible, awful things.
It was mainly the line situation. Security demolished the line and made it a crowd instead which makes no sense. Then they had us push up at 8am and we could hardly sit. Then at 3pm, they made us push up even more and we were body to body with no room to move for 4 hours and it was the most terrible experience ever.
Not to mention making it a crowd rather than a line completely screwed over people who camped out. Me being one of them. I got there at midnight, yet people who got there at 10am somehow ended up in front of me. Security didn’t care that people couldn’t breathe in this line, didn’t care that people were leaving because of it, didn’t care that it was the most uncomfortable situation, didn’t care about people crying because of it.
All of this just created the most negative energy. Everything was going perfectly fine, but then they just left us there is crushed crowd where we had to fend for ourselves. When they opened the doors, the entire crowd rushed forward and it was a disaster.
Somehow I managed to get front row, thanks to a few good people who let me take their spot up there. Which is good because I didn’t spend the night sleeping on the concrete for nothing. However, a mass amount of people had to be carried out so I spent most of the show having my view being blocked by security, hearing people scream, or getting kicked in the face by people being carried over the top of my head. I didn’t hear or see West Coast at all because the entire time three people right next to me were getting carried over and security was blocking my view and all I heard were them screaming. I know it’s beyond their control and I don’t blame people, but having 98765789087 people carried out really ruined the show.
Lana herself was great, it’s just a shame I didn’t really get to experience it. I had one good moment where she came right over to me and took my letter from me. She forgot to take it with her and left it on the stereo though haha.
Lana nor the crowd are to blame btw, it was really the venue and event management. The whole line situation set the tone for the night.
