That is because you are an ANIMAL!

This is just basic advice for teh pit n00bs. Don't want any of them to miss out on an amazing gig because they were unprepared.

Yup, sweaty feet = not good

If you are near Matt and he breaks into an awesome solo or riff, HOLD ON FOR DEAR LIFE! Everyone surges forward for a better view and to take a pic!

If they are light colour ones just be prepared to kiss them goodbye as they will be wrecked from people stepping on them.

I wear a pair of Dr Martens for gig - really sturdy and the most comfy shoes ever!

If you are in seats, DON'T EXPECT TO SIT!! It's a rock concert, not the symphony! Last night 2 Musers I know didn't feel like standing for hours on cement, and one is rather petite and knew she wouldn't see much from the floor. They got great spots in the 3rd row of seats, but everyone around them made their lives miserable because they stood during Muse!

If you have a physical disability and can't stand, for heaven's sake ask about accessible seating. You don't have to be in a wheelchair, they must provide seating for those who need reasonable accomodations (like the '04 Wiltern show; my son was on crutches with a knee injury). They will provide seating that guarantees a good view if you are seated.

I even went to a Gogol Bordello gig, was in front of Eugene on the barrier and still didn't break a sweat! That crowd was much crazier than Muse. I'm not the person who stands still, I'm always crazy during gigs.

YEAH she was having a seizure, she was being carried off in front of me, that was scary.

Percentage-wise, what are the chances that my glasses will get broken? I don't have contacts, and I kinda like to see. I've been wanting new ones, so I guess I don't care that much if they get pulverized.

Thanks for this thread. It's given me a lot to think (worry) about. I'm definitely someone who likes to do the research and be prepared.

i didn't care to check if this has been said before, so if it's repeat stuff...sorry.


Don't encourage pushing. Pushing hurts the people up front and some people who aren't ready for it could fall and falling in a crowd is not fun.
Pushing will happen, I know, but don't egg it on...
If someone falls help them up.
Do NOT crowd surf b/c you think it's trust me it is not it's annoying to everyone. Only do it if it's your only way to get out of the pit.
If you see a crowd surfer's shoe apporaching someone's head don't be afraid to protect and cushion that persons head or at least forewarn them in some way. It's okay to look out for one another. The person at first may be like but once they realize why you did they will be all and that you saved them from getting a shoe to their head.
Do not wear heels/pumps in GA. It would suck if you're jumping and the spike of your heel stabs someone's foot.
yeah and do not wear flip-flops either.


p.s.
get there at a decent time if you want a good spot in GA. don't expect to get there 30 minutes before the show starts and think it's okay to push your way to the front.

and last but not least...have fun! and look out for one another.

they'll stay on your head, I promise! unless you get involved in moshing then there will be a huge chance they'll fly off.

50/50. I wear glasses, never worn contacts ever. I almost broke my glasses as several gigs (Muse gigs are tame compared to most I attend), but as long as you're aware of the people around you (particularly crowd surfers), you'll survive. Duck and cover!

Center stage and to the left is ridiculous. If you're in the center and you expect to not be moved by a sea of people, forget about it, lol. If you're in the center and worried you won't have a good view of Matt, forget about that too, because most likely the crowd will pick you up a few inches off the ground the tide will push you to just a few feet away from him. Been there, done that, lol.

Its not so bad, you just have to get over the claustraphobia/loss of control. Its a mental trick. If you can lose yourself for a bit, you'll be fine.

If you're in seats, more importantly, don't tell the people who stand up for muse to "sit the fuck down." That happened to Mary, Lara, Liron and I at the SF show in 2007. Bastards.

ugh that is irritating. whenever you're at the side where the lead singer is people just freak the fuck out! I ended up in the center 2nd row at the mcr/muse gig. I regretted that very quickly forgetting that is exactly the spot where gerard performs on stage.
I was elbowed, kicked, kneed and pushed throughout most of the show.

Can't agree with this part, lol. For me alcohol is an absolute must if I'm going to have soaking wet strangers packed against me like that. That doesn't mean I overdrink and act like a dick or puke on anyone. Just means I'm more equiped to particpate in the fun pit stuff and tolerate the bad pit stuff.

And yes there's risk of dehydration - and I have an absolutely crazy personal story about dehydration I won't share right now - but I usually limit the full-contact pit stuff to about an hour or less. I try to get in and get out. I've never tried to endure 5 or 6 hours of it.

To me the worst part is just standing for too long. Sore feet, sore legs, sore back - do not like. But in my experience the rough stuff mostly only happens up close to the stage. The other 75% of the fans in GA have a reasonable amount of personal space and can escape for a break when necessary.

she said drunk. There is nothing wrong w/ people wanting a beer or two but when they are drunk that is a different story...some people can't handle their liquor.
