I was going to go picnic outside the fence tonight for WILCO as tickets are long sold out. I just noticed there is "netting" up over a tall fence, obstructing any views from outside the venue. I've never noticed this before for shows (though it's been a couple of years since I've done this).
Why do they do this and do they do it for all shows (was going to do the same next week for SIGUR ROS - also long sold out)? I think it's crap! as most shows are sold out so it's not like they're losing revenue from picnic-ers.
