We are traveling from northern Virginia for the show. We have never been to the S&T venue, so have a couple of questions I'm hoping someone wouldn't mind answering.

- What time do the gates open for tailgating?
- Is there RV parking (is that what the venue means by "oversize vehicle")?
- Does the venue have any unique tailgating rules (e.g. no popup sunshades/cabanas)?
- Any other venue unique tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and Fins Up!

Lots vary from year to year. I'd say probably 3-330 for a weeknight show. There is a part of the lot set up for RVs, buses, etc. No unique tailgating rules. Popups allowed. Don't use glass and hide visible liquor bottles when cops walk around and you'll be fine.

You just never know with Pittsburgh. I remember in 2015 it was a Thursday show and we drove right in around 1:00 PM. It's a total crapshoot what they'll do there.
It was too much tequila . . . . or not quite enough.

After the Saturday debacle from 2018 I'd hope they're going to try to be as fan-friendly as possible for this show. They don't want to F this up again.

Star Lake is one of my favorite venues to see Buffett but it's usually a pain in the a$$ getting in and out of the parking lot.

Figure the gates will open between 1 and 3
HIDE or do not take glass. First off, it is best for everyone

I did receive an email a few weeks ago with redemption codes and a website(musicredemptions.com) to visit to fill out a form. However, I've ordered tickets to a bunch of shows this tour so I can't say for sure Star Lake was part of that email or if it was referring to a different venue I purchased for.

I got an email about preordering the new CD. When I clicked the link, the preorder page had this message:
Note: A copy of Life On The Flip Side is included with every concert ticket purchased online for the Slack Tide 2020 Tour. If you purchased tickets, you should receive an email soon with information on how to redeem your copy. This offer is not valid on tickets purchased through reselling sites or on the secondary market.

I bought a ticket online for the Slack Tide 2020 Tour and I haven't gotten an email telling me how to redeem my copy.

Looks like there is going to be a NO CONCERT Party Saturday, July 18.

I am waiting on confirmation! Still at the Double Tree in Green Tree... As soon as I have information I will pass it along!
