Question How to meet Dave at a concert

I've met a lot of band members of the years at small venues, but i was wondering how does one go about meeting DMB at a large venue like an ampitheatre?? I'm going to the San Diego show on friday and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions??
Thanks!

You pretty much just have to be in the right place at the right time... sometimes you'll catch their buses pulling in or maybe he'll be riding his bike around near the venue.

Or you could go the creepy route and figure out what hotel he's staying in and wait for him outside (lots of people do this, and it bothers me).

That is, to put it politely, the most fucking ridiculous thing ever. Is it really worth the trouble of being a stalker?

oncee upon a time many many years ago at Alpine Mr. Kapshaw was walking around the sidewalk between lawn and pavilion. He was throwing VIP necklace things out or maybe backstage passes I heard... that could lead you to Dave...

I've never had the privilege of VIP or backstage passes so someone that has, do you get to meet the whole band back there or what???

no

If you're going to Chula Friday - be in the parking lot early - the paved lot. The buses pull in and sometimes you can get lucky and they will stop and you can catch a glimpse of a band member or two or as we did a few years back got to shake the hands of Butch and Rashawn thru the window.... Carter was inside too - and invited a drummer who was playing in the parking lot inside to sign his drum head - so cool!! (and that isn't being stalkerish at all )

You just have to be in the right place at the right time.

Like everyone else said, right place, right time. I was standing in line to get the poster @ Citi Field N2 and Rashawn Ross was taking a stroll, listening to music on his CD player or iPod around the stadium.
