Default What do you do in the intervening 4 hours?

So the EP website tells me that the doors open at 5pm, and Elton John comes on at 9pm....

{it also tells me to bring a ticket & photo ID, and not to bring any drugs or weapons - which is a shame because I would have liked to have gotten lit and killed a few people, but hey, at least that is straightened out}

But what does one do for 4 hours whilst waiting eagerly for the show to start?

Who will entertain me??

It strikes me that either they are anticipating big logistical problems in admitting people (especially if they're going to check photo id's and frisk you for drugs & weapons) - or there'll be fun stuff to do while u wait...

no idea...with JT it all went very smooth, and no checking as far as I saw. The frisking hardly deserves to be called that.
In my experience, people filter in during the hours before the concert...I am certainly not going to wait 4 hours in this freezing cold...
