Her Born This Way ball show was amazing. AMAZING. I don't want to go into great details because I have a number of friends that are going to see the show, and I don't want to spoil it for them. I will say that they will NOT be disappointed. After waiting months for this since the tickets went on sale, it was totally worth the wait.
However - Regarding The Monster Pit:
After spending 12+ hours waiting out the front of the Brisbane Entertainment Centre for the General Admission Monster Pit selection, I didn't get in. Yes, even though I was one of the first 100 there, waited all day, and dressed to ball - I didn't make it in. Why? Because I was in the BACK General Admission Area (Door 10). What they don't tell you in that press release, is that you have to be in the FRONT general admission area (Doors 4 and 11) --- and if you're not, then you don't even get a look in.
So be advised if you were hoping to get into the pit, but you don't hold front General admission tickets - my advice to you is to stay at home, and to go later in the day. It'll save you sitting on your butt in a skimpy costume in the cold, only to be told that you didn't stand a chance in the first place. This is not mentioned on the official pages - and I feel that all Little Monsters have a right to this information.
How would you feel if you were told by BEC Staff that you were pretty much guaranteed a monster pit wristband if you waited all day, to then be told otherwise as you are going into the arena? Tired, Pissed off, Livid? Yes. I was all of the above, and while I still enjoyed the show immensely - danced my ass off, screamed, sang, laughed and cried - I couldn't help but feel a sense of disappointment throughout the whole show - because really, monsters in the back general admission that waited all day had just as much a right as those that had front general admission.
