How can I go to a TODAY concert?

Fans and visitors are encouraged to join us on the plaza for the live performances. Viewing is on a first-come, first-served basis outside TODAY's window-on-the-world studio, located at 49th Street and Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. Fans should arrive by 6 a.m. for best viewing.
Sting is also touring with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra this summer and they play two nights at Metropolitan Opera on July 13th and 14th (plus NYC-area shows at Jones Beach Theater and elsewhere). Tickets are still on sale.

Why do people go to these? Stand around for over 4 hours to hear 3 songs? Aren't all these acts in town for a concert anyways that you could just plunk down a few buck and see a proper concert?

Is that all they do 3 songs? I figured maybe an hour...yikes!

This is tourist stuff - half the crowd will have fanny packs and hasn't been to a concert that wasn't at their State Fair in at least a decade. I don't know anyone who lives in/around NYC and values their time so little to go poke around The Today Show in any capacity, let alone for several hours just to see Justin Fucking Bieber "perform" for 20mins.

I saw David Bowie do one of these like 6 or 7 years ago and he played about 10 songs, but thats Bowie though

You know what would be awesome? Say yer like a 30/40 year old dude and you go down there for Justin Bieber and get in the middle of things. You'd see like 2000 15 year old girls and then just this one dude smack in the middle. It would make for great tv.

@2:25- it would also make a great case for the prosecution.

I'm going to every single one. There's a REALLY good panera bread nearby. Make a day of it!

No mention of the controversy over Uzbekistan (IIRC) that Sting got himself into?

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2010 4:09 PM

I'd go see Maxwell. That Lady Gaga one is going to be a full scale riot..

I could give a rat's ass about Uzbekistan. If you know an NBC employee, you can get super-close (almost on-stage) and arrive last minute.

I totally thought that Justin Bieber was Ellen Page the first time I saw him. I think it was the hair cut.

Maybe you all know of this darn page but its kinda amusing. Hopefully the kids will dig it.

I like Justin Bieber because he talks all hard and shit. That dude is STREET TOUGH! Do not fuck with him. Damn girl...

If I lived in New York City, I would soooooooo go see Maroon 5. Even though they only play like 3 or 4 songs, I would give anything to see them. They are the best band EVER!! But I will definitely get out of bed and watch them on TV haha.
