I'm new to this forum and a huge fan of Garbage. I'm seeing them live at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, Georgia on July 22, 2016. I've been to over thirty concerts in my short lifetime (I'm 19) and this is only the second one that has general admission seating. I REALLY want to be on the front row and observe Shirley Manson singing in my face. What time, to you guys who have done this before, do you recommend arriving at the venue to ensure I'm right in front of the stage when the show begins? Also, do you recommend ear plugs? I've never worn any to any of the other concerts I attended, but I've never been on the front row either. I don't want to have to push and shove people out of my way to get to the front because that just seems impolite.

I'm not very familiar with the Atlanta market, nor have I been to the Tabernacle, so I'll answer generally. It really depends on the city, the market, how wide the stage is, how aggressive people are, and whether VIP packages are offered. In cities like LA, fans may wait in line all day to secure a front row spot. In cities where they have a smaller fan base, there may not be as much of a line.
With that said, on this tour, VIP packages are for sale. VIPs go in before the rest of the line. If you want to have a better chance at the front row and can afford it, then a VIP package will let you skip the general line and gives you a better chance at front row. The packages are available here:
Some venues may offer "skip the line" passes. If they do, those passes are different than VIP and would probably go in after all the VIPs, but before the general line. I don't have any specific knowledge about whether this is a thing in Atlanta.

I'm unsure as to whether or not Atlanta has a huge fan base for Garbage, either. Being that it's the Bible Belt, I'm going to assume the fan base is small-medium sized and not very colossal as it would be in more liberal cities like LA and Seattle. I just bought a ticket a couple of days ago (so the show isn't sold out). Regardless, my friend and I are probably going to get there around 11am and camp out all day, then when the doors open at 7pm, we're gonna go straight to the floor and park our asses. ;-)
Dance Away: reporting in, ...sahhh-lute!!! I love this board, and, I love the Garbage mystique. I'm viewing this board with black background and red text. It's so "Batman" and when I return to this board I feel like I'm returning to the batcave. Peace Love & Underst

Dance Away: And, Elvis Costello's wife is Diana Krall. Oh god, do I love the music of Diana Krall! And, I know it's an aspiration of Shirley to do the kind of music that Krall is doing. Shirley's mother was a 'big band' music singer (sample "Glenn Miller" big band)

thebestsalvia: Yes, Salvia like Mescaline but it is useful for meditation or tired less. But it's possible when you will be taken Salvia in right quantity.

orthodoxparadox36: I think that album actually saved, well, a few of the most important things in my life. I am eternally grateful for the way you all chose to dedicate your collective creative genius; something which makes it that much more special, not to mention, genuine!
