Re: ***Official Mansfield 2022 Thread***

Hope everyone enjoys the show this year. This will be my 20th anniversary of seeing the band live, let alone nearly 20 years seeing them at Mansfield (7-23-2002 was the first show).

    Good for you! I was in the Pit there last year for the 1st time, which was great (Stone opener and Two Step closer).

    Beware the venue policy for Out of State alcohol purchases:

    https://www.livenation.com/venue/Kov...#venue-details

    Solo cups in the lots too.

    Enjoy the show!

    good lookin out! luckily i'm 36.

    "A valid Out-of-State Driver’s License, which has the patron’s photo and indicates that the patron is at least 25 years of age or older and subject to the conditions that (1) the patron must actually appear to be 25 years of age or older and (2) if the patron is between 25 and 30 years of age, the patron must also produce another form of identification (such as a credit card, with a signature to compare signatures), which substantiates the person's identity."

    wild. they won't sell to people who are from out of state and under 25. how is that possible..

    They have people that will take away beers from people who ask others to buy them beer.

    I was like 22 or 23 and i bought a beer for my buddy from college who was from Rhode Island because he couldn't buy one. I bought it and gave it to him and some staff came over and confiscated the beer.

    This was like 15 years ago.

    I believe that there have been some serious accidents or even fatalities from people leaving Mansfield's Tweeter/Xfinity Center/Great Woods over the past 30 plus years, so they've cracked down a lot.

    For you newbies, you will see people in blue on bikes going through lanes looking for underage drinkers or cops on golf carts and stuff looking for stuff. If you don't make too much of a scene, you'll be fine.

    And I'll say it again. If you plan on staying for the whole show and are parked in the free lots, unless you run like Usain Bolt, plan on staying a while. It's one of the worst bottleneck parking lots I've ever seen. But the good thing is that there are tons of people directing traffic. When I went to MetLife in NJ for Mania in 2019, it was a free-for-all and you had to find your own parking in the lot w/out anyone directing traffic.

    I'm definitely going to Hartford with seats but might also go solo to Mansfield, lawn, leave well before the encore. I've never done the Mansfield - Hartford combo before.

    Mansfield is notorious for dropping TM tickets the day of the show and fairly sick tickets too - i had 3rd row a few years back that I bought while standing in line waiting to take a piss.

    If you are going to go - i'd show up without a ticket and see what pops up, it won't be hard to go even if you are planning on getting a lawn seat

    Happen to be in town for work in Boston so going to get to this show. What is the uber situation like getting out of there? Just wondering if I should rent a car or if I will be okay getting an uber or taxi.

    Uber is gonna be tough. Taxi is nonexistent for that distance. I would plan on renting a car, unless you want to use Commuter Rail to get there and a car service like Boston Coach or similar for the ride back to the city.

    100% drive - i've heard of people waiting 3-4 hours after the show for the ones who relied on Uber. Mansfield isn't close to Boston so having that high of volume in a relatively remote area is going to be a struggle for the uber drivers (and taxis) in that area

    Who are you coming up with? Do you have premier/red lot parking? Mansfield is great - make sure to get to tailgating as soon as the lots open since traffic builds up pretty quickly come 3pm... or 4pm, can't remember when exactly they open.

    Hi All!

    My birthday falls on the Mansfield date so I'm considering making the trip up for a show, but backreading the posts in here I'm now terrified of the parking situation. Hanging out for a post-tailgate afterwards won't be an option for me, so what steps should I take to ensure I'm out of the lots in a reasonable amount of time (heading south)? Sounds like if I leave during the encore that's not good enough? What if I leave during the main set closer, will there still be a backlog of traffic by then?

    I walk out during the encore and on the the highway with plenty of time. You should be fine.

    Buy a parking pass if you want to stay for the encore. or pay for that lot before the entrance to the right as you drive in.

    Re: ***Official Mansfield 2022 Thread***

    Yea I was going to suggest... there are some independent lots along the main road that you could park at if you planned on going early, and could take off after the set closer. Just keep in mind, you might have up to a half mile walk back to your car so just make sure you account for the 15 or so minutes it might take to get there. Premier Parking (Red Lot) pops up every once in a while, I'd suggest keeping an eye out for that if you don't mind paying $60 for a fairly easy in/out.

    Also - i'm not sure what Mansfield police do as far as the flow of traffic. If you park on the same side as the venue, you might be limited to a right turn exit only which is going to put you going away from the highway. Just speculating here but if I were going to an independent lot, I would make sure its across the street from the venue that way I'm 100% positive the exit will dump me right into 495.

    Re: ***Official Mansfield 2022 Thread***

    Drove by the Xfinity Center in Mansfield a little while ago today as I was curious if the price tag was out for the first pay lot on the right off the highway and it wasn't. But I did notice that the lot right after it on the right that takes you to the back of the lots (not the main lot that most go in, but a side lot) has an UBER sign in front, so not sure if going forward if that is the spot for UBER drivers to drop people off. I don't remember that to be an UBER spot from previous years.

    Also noticed that there is a restaurant across from the main entrance called Alberto's and I don't remember that from before, but then again I don't usually go that way as I come from the main highway. Also, next to the gas station by the main entrance there is a cannabis place called CANA that has a sign saying "opening soon" so there you go.

    I obviously know leaving a concert with a ton of people is always a mess, but that being considered, is uber fairly easy to get or is it one of those areas where there's literally no drivers?

    I think this venue might be one of the worse venues in the country to try and get an uber. I've heard nightmares about people waiting hours. I'd avoid it at all costs.
