Great points, Abner. Another (SOMETIMES relatively easy)way to meet your favorite rock star is to hang out behind the arena by the tour buses after the show. My girlfriend and I met Beck this way. (VERY cool dude, I might add.) We also got our picture taken with him and autographs, both of which I need to scan into my computer. Anyway, my point is, even if you don't get to actually shake the star's hand or speak with them personally, if you hang out by the tour buses long enough, you'll most likely at least get to see them relatively close up board the bus, and you can get a couple good pictures out of it. As long as I've been going to concerts, I've never understood why more people don't do this. I do it after almost every show. (Didn't do it for Paul because the way the arena is set up, the back of the arena was probably in some alley, which is not a good thing in DC. LOL. Plus, I was with my mother.) Every time I go back by the tour buses after a show, there are only about 20 to 30 other fans TOPS, out of the 10,000 + who attended the show. Granted, sometimes you have to wait at least a good hour for your star to come out, but believe me, it's worth it. Also shows your dedication as a fan.
