|Too funny. It was a sea of cell phones and cameras out there!|
WHERE: Yonge-Dundas Square
WHEN: May 20 - 4-5 pm
INSIDER TIPS: Concerts at Yonge-Dundas Square are not for the faint of heart but the couple that I have been to have been fantastic, so it's definitely worth the effort as long as you know what you're getting into. First of all, be ready for the crowd, which will be massive. Getting annoyed and frustrated will not do you any good, plus you don't have any more of a right to be there than anyone else. So go with the flow and you'll have a much better time at the show. If you want a good spot, you'll need to be there waaaaay early and make sure you meet up with all your friends before trying to infiltrate the mob of people because finding each other after the fact will be impossible. Keep in mind that the stage is recessed a little in between the giant speakers, so your view will be blocked from the sidelines. I find that the southeast corner is the easiest to navigate and gets you closer to the stage faster. If you don't much care about being able to see, there are a few patios in the area that will save you from the crush of the crowd and allow you to hear everything while enjoying a cold one. Or you can mosh it with everyone else as long as you wear sunscreen and comfortable (and for your own safety, closed toed) footwear. Think of the crush of people as part of the experience and enjoy the show!
|The mob of people around their cars. Kind of scary. I was just doubling back so I wouldn't have to wade through the crowd of people when I saw a whole swarm of camera-wielding fans surrounding the band's cars and blocking the road. Intense!|
