I need some help. I am a R&R Junkie. I live in Texas via the SF Bay Area where I grew up seeing bands like Journey, Eddie Money, Sammy Haggar....all kinds of great Bay Area Bands, Love the 80's hair bands as well and am really excited about flying up to see the Jam for the first time. I have been to about 100 concerts but went to my first Festival at Rocknamerica which was sparsely attended but a Blast! I am waitng to see what other bands will be added before I make final plans, because right now, Heart, Kid Rock and Hinder are not enough for me to drop alot of money on. I've seen Heart and they are great. I'm judging MDJ by their past line-ups which has been amazing so hoping this year's will be as well.
I realize they haven't posted much, but before I book flights/accomodations, was hoping some of you could give me some tips advice on the following questions?
1. What airport would I fly into (Minneapolis?) How close is that to MJD?
2. Is a VIP pass (currently for $400) worth it? I noticed the VIP section is kinda off to the side rather than right in front of the stage.
3. Suggestions on Lodging? I'm not a tent kind of camper and we would be flying, so any close by cabins you suggest?
4. Better to just take public transportation/shuttle?
My wife and I attend about 8 concerts a year (last year saw Aerosmith, Motley, Poison, Def Leppard, Cheap Trick, Styx, Journey, Foreigner, Night Ranger, Cinderella, Stevie Nicks. This year already have tickest for Survivor/Starship and Van Halen. If MJD books Boston we are all in.
Any help?....and I am website challenged
