    Hi guys. I just got two tickets to see Nothing More in Memphis in about a week and a half. I was wondering when I should get to the venue in order to get good seats/standing spots. It's general admission only and I've never been to a concert like that. Thanks for the help.

    In general, i attend to a concert 60-90 minutes before entry. But i guess its a difference between how big bands are. I guess a hour should work.

    I got barricade at multiple shows by arriving 3 hours early.

    1 hour before doors should still get you a good spot, however, if you don't mind not being right at front.

    I live in Houston where traffic was created by Satan so two-three hours should suffice.

    It all depends on the band and the venue. I remember seeing Airbourne in 2010, turned up 10 mins before doors and got front row. Same with Combichrist and Gary Numan, but I think the latter was more due to the venue. For Linkin Park I got front row by turning up at 1PM. Even then there were 10 people before me. These days I cba and often turn up around 8-8:30 cos I only want to see the headliner and their sets are usually at 9-9:30.

    I love Nothing More, I think they're bigger in the states than over here so I'd imagine 90-120 mins before doors for them.

    I'm going to a Bone Thugs show near my house next month. I plan to give myself about 90 minutes.
