I ran into Jim Petersen tonight at the Fest who was wearing the Amoeba Hollywood store tshirt he received at Paul's Secret LA Gig and who stayed in line overnight Monday night to get an wristband Tuesday.
He said there were over 300 plus people who got in line Monday and stayed overnight. Once they got a number for the wristband they came back at 6AM tuesday morning. By 10AM tuesday, another 400 people had shown up to wait in line. Apparently only the first 50 to 75 of this second group got in. The store held something like 850 people, all standing in aisles in the store. He said it was a really great concert, McCartney was jumping around like a 20 year old.
So even if you had flown in Tuesday morning, you would have needed to get in line no later than 7AM to have been assured a wristband. apparently they only took something like 50 from this second group in line. So many others were turned away.
So don't beat yourself up if you thought you could have gotten one of those prized wristbands by flying in Tuesday morning, you would have needed to have flown in Monday night to get there by 7AM.
