    I used to live on site at the polo grounds when Pearl Jam and Tool played in 1993. Not only did the grounds lose their music virginity, but people lost alot of shoes! For days after you could walk that dirt road and find a shoe here and a shoe there...everywhere a shoe!

    Can anyone give me verification about whether or not this is true? I mean, it's plausible, but it also definitely seems possible that someone else has been that far over. I know Fatboy Slim came pretty close if he didn't go past 1, but I was too busy having the time of my life to look at my watch and see for sure. Dani, you still lurking about? Can we get a thumbs up/thumbs down on whether Prince is the only one to ever go past one?

    It seems plausible to me, because I think I have some vague recollection of official curfew being changed from 12:00 to 12:30, or thereabouts.
