We began chatting with the security guy..I'll call him Jeremy....we became good friends during the hour-long wait for them to let us in.
Around 6pm, they told us to line up. Patty and I, some guy who was on crutches, someone in a wheel chair, and one elderly person. Yes, we were grouped with those who needed "special help" getting into the arena.
Pattys' intense pain was our ticket to front and center!
Once they opened the gates, we were the first ones allowed in..we made our way (slowly) to the front of the arena, and parked ourselves on the floor, claiming the best spot in the place.
It was a very long day, and even though she was in pain the whole time, Patty never complained once and we got to see one of the most amazing shows ever!
