Fans will not be allowed to wait in line prior to that time for entry.  There are two entries to the concert viewing area: on Nicollet Mall between 8th and 9th, and on 8th Street between Nicollet and Marquette. All who enter the concert viewing area are subject to additional security screening, including hand-held metal detectors and bag checks. A list of prohibited items is available at Audio and screens will be available along Nicollet Mall for additional viewing.
