I lined up at 1:00 pm and managed to get on the rail, I was #129. But it all depends on how big the venue is. If it is a big venue then you can show up at 12:00 to 1:00 and get on the rail. If it's a small venue then you want to show up as early as you can.

I was thinking at being at my show at 11am. So hopefully it'll be okay. Is it more of a race thing or do you just take what you can find?

You get a good spirited run in if that's what you want, but it's rare that anyone's aggressive about it. People you meet in line will be more likely to cut you some slack if you fall a little behind, but there really isn't a bad spot wherever you land. Have a brilliant show!

There's always variables for it (city-size and therefore the amount of fans, # of entrances, security holding people back, people running, etc.). But I think most, if not all, people that arrive before noon have a great chance for a rail spot at a typical arena show. When I'm on the rail, I usually ask people behind me what time they arrived and a lot of them said 4:30 or an hour or two before doors.

Also, you will want to make sure what time the venue allows you to start lining up. They will have security there for your safety and it never hurts to be on their good side!

A good barometer is how quickly the gig sells out. London will be an early one for us as the tickets flew out the door
