Need some advice LB fans. We have attended several shows before but this will be our first farm tour which makes it even sweeter! Since there are no seats is it just a free for all basically? Having my 8 year old with just trying to prepare myself. Thanks for any thoughts!

@torrieantrim I think there is just a pilot and McDonald's right up the road. It's been awhile since I been that way.

If you like to eat and drink then there's plenty to do. That's pretty much it in effingham. We're loaded with restaurants, bars, and hotels. I mean we have your basics too like Walmart and kohls, but other than that not really. You could go downtown and shop the little stores I guess. I just know the city was letting everyone know the rules for traffic earlier this week. The biggest one was parking on the highway.

@torrieantrim that's a good question lol I'm coming from 3 hrs away and have no clue what I'm going to do with my car. Is there somewhere nearby to hangout or park to wait patiently until parking opens? I will probably get there around 11.

I'm also curious what y'all are doing with you're vehicles and such when you get there so early if they don't allow parking until 2. Just an FYI this venue is along a main highway in effingham on the outside of town and no other businesses around. I just wanted to give you a heads up so you werent caught off guard.

I live in effingham. I plan on being there as early as possible if they allow. My first farm tour show, but not my first Luke show!

I'm about hour and a half away. I'm planning on getting there early to get in line as well. Would love to meet up with LB app gals just to introduce ourselves if you want.

@HFE I'm hoping to get there early enough to get in line before it gets crazy. I'm going with 2 friends we live about 3 hours away. Are you close?

@amberncrowley we are going to Saturday as well. My MG ticket I'm giving to my daughter so I will have to take her over there. I know some fans off this site have worked together for each other. The last concert she didn't get to see Luke and the screens were off to the side so I wanted her to get to see him perform Saturday.

you normally get the mg from the merchant tent after you are inside. however it is only good for 1 person. so your son can't hold your spot even if you do run in for the pit. unless you have another adult staying with him while you go to mg. even then you aren't guaranteed to get your spot back no matter how nice you are to people. there is a separate area for seats ( that you carry in) also take a large bottle of water for each person going in. we normally arrive at 11am the night before to wait in line. parking doesn't open until 2pm, then the gates open at 5. you want to be in 1 of the 8 lines as early as possible. we always pack a lunch and make sure it's finished before we go in. the show starts at 6 and luke comes on around 9 or 930.

Well I have our tickets already but I won MG so I have to go to will call first to get that. I hoping by us having a MG it doesn't hurt our chances of getting a good spot! Thanks @Sandy Schooler
