Let Me Start By Thanking Justin Boyd, I Asked Him For A Chance To Shoot The Show And He Let Me Do It & I Must Say, It Was A Blast. So Big Thanks To Him!
So I Think I'm Going To Do This In 3 Or 4 Parts, Maybe 5 Because It Was Really Broken Down Into 5 Parts, Ok Now, Onto The Story.
I arrived at Stage AE around 5:30 and there was already a line wrapped around the building, it was phenomenal. I walked past, trying not to pay attention to the hundreds of people to my left. Then when I arrived at the Will Call window I gave her my ID & the woman there said that the Photo list wasn't in yet so I had to wait to go in.
as i'm waiting more people show up & the sidewalk became a blend of some of Pittsburgh's top artist & the hundreds of fans waiting to get inside the concert.
We Waited And Waited And Didn't Get Inside Until 7, As Soon As I Got In, I Ran Into Flack & We Went Backstage. Now Keep In Mind. I Have Been Backstage Before At Other Venues But Nothing & I Mean Nothing Compared To This Place. It Was Pretty Cool Looking Out And Seeing That Many People. It Was Surreal, I Couldn't Believe I Was There.
Shortly After Getting Backstage I Saw A Few More Familiar Faces And Just Watched How Things Were Happening. I Wanted To Learn The Regular Things That Happen Back There. The Whole Time Without Knowing, I Only Had A Photo Band And I Wasn't Allowed Backstage, I Found This Out When I Tried To Get To The Photo Pit & Security Told Me I Couldn't Get In The Pit And I'm Not Allowed Back Up On Stage. Then I Saw A Photographer I Knew & I Asked Him To Go Get Flack. Soon After Flack Came & They Let Me Go.
