Re: General admission/lawn concert tickets
Your experience at a GA concert is directly related to several factors:
1. The type of band you're seeing / what kind of crowd they attract.
2. Your level of desire regarding being close to the stage.
3. The number of people the venue holds
4. How well you deal with large groups of people.
I've been to a lot of GA shows -- from small bar-type venues to down on the grass at Wrigley Field -- and I've generally had a very good time. The waiting for a good spot can be annoying (I think I waited close to 7 hours, combining admission line & field time for Dave Matthews at Vanderbilt Stadium), and it gets even more annoying trying to hold a good spot during the course of a show or get back to a good spot if you find the need to use the bathroom or get a drink.
I like GA overall, but it's not for everyone.
