Anthony PIT Experience
Our reader Anthony has sent us his PIT rewiew and how he got 2 PIT tickets for Wembley Arena on August 19th.
My Dream came true….I was in the PIT!!! If anyone got some pics from last night (sunday, Wembley) of the people in
the pit…i would love to see them…
Let me share my experience with you guys though and to give you the inspiration to NEVER give up. If there
is something you want…go get it!!
I have been coming on this site for several months now and in that time i
have read some of the most awesome stories of people up-grading there seats, winning competitions or just having the balls to kick
enough ass and work there way into the pits somehow…well i just become one

I saw the show last thursday at Earls Court (was in Block 1), what an amazing
show. I wont go into the details as if your reading this, you must be as big a fan as me to know the
show inside out by now.
Anyway, from my seat i could see the people in the pit and just wanted to be in there so bad. I have read all your stories about being in the pit and they just bring me to tears with excitement and emotion, so i knew i had to do something about it… I was due to see the show next, on Wednesday (Block A4) and am excited enough
to have those tickets. So much so, that i was on my way to my mate Phil’s house in Harrow yesterday to borrow his digital camera for the
show. While on the way there, i called my friend Scott, who is going with me on wednesday. I was telling him that i had to pass straight though wembley to get to Phils house, and
how about we pop down and see
if there are any spare seats, or any chance of getting into the pit….
Arrived at Wembley at 4, asked at the box office about seats and they only had bad seats left, so just thought would wait til wednesday and be happy with what we got. Asked the
lady at the box office if she
knew how to get last minute pit tickets. She kinda had no idea, and said thats probably guest list and
they dont open for another couple of hours. So me and Scott wondered around…end up at a side entrance where a few fans were behind barriers, so we thought this must be where Madonna arrives, so hung around.
Within 15mins a security comes out, stops the traffic, and allows 2 cars with tinted windows to enter. As the 2nd car pulled into the entrance a bouncer jumped out…thats all we saw as they then closed the gates…apparently Madonna was in the 1st car!!
At that point i so wanted to be watching the show again, and couldnt wait til wednesday, so everytime i saw someone that looked important, i kept asking about how to get pit tickets, although most had no idea what i was on about!
Eventually, by the guest list office, i saw 2 girls waiting..i asked if they were in the pit..they said YES. They had won via MTV, and were told to wait for an Alison…i have heard this name so many times and thought i have to find that woman! I saw a big Madonna type security guard and asked if there was a chance
of some spare pit tickets..he again said Alison was the woman to ask…but its very unlikely, but if we want to wait around, once everyone is in, IF there are any spares they might give them out. So we stayed in line… Eventually Alison turns up. By this time though, there is a really long queue of pit winners and i felt so bad waiting in line, knowing we had no tickets. Had spoken to a few winners, and was so excited for them, but of course inside i knew it seemed more and more unlikely to happen.
Alison was telling everyone to only be in line if you had won, and that there were no spares for the pit.
Told everyone to had there ID’s ready, then started letting people in. Me and Scott then just stood to one side, and let the winners
pass…eventually they were all in, and we were at
the front of the line. By this time there were many fans waiting like us, on the off chance. I think at that point I gave up, as people started to push, and Alison then grabbed this girl and her friend, and gave them 2 tickets.
I kinda went blank from shock at that point as got so excited while waiting…to then have 2 people push in and claim those last spare tickets. I then saw the security guard, who i spoke to earlier, lean over to Alison and say something..Alison then held out her hand to me holding 2 tickets…the LAST 2 tickets for the pit…i just grabbed them in total shock..gave one to Scott, then turned to the security guard, and grabbed his hand and shook it,
thanking him so much! By the time i looked back
at Scott to see his little face light up, he was thanking Alison. Scott then looked at me, and i had tears rolling down my face! We were going to be in the pit!!
As for the experience itself….TOTALLY AMAZING.
I cannot explain what I
saw. I never in my life thought I would be so close to the lady herself. My fave moment…when Madonna was standing right above me, but with her back to us..lookin down, singing to her fans,
spotlight on her…but it was on us too….i was looking out to a sea of faces…i could see exactly what Madonna was seeing, and it was breathtaking!!
I also got a wink from Donna which was ace too, and shook one of the dancers and…didnt touch madonna but one guy next to me did.
I was MORE than happy with being in the pit, just knowing i had experienced something very special. Thanks you Alison….thank you Mr Security man….thank you Scott for
sharing with me…and THANK YOU MADONNA!!
Special Thanks to Anthony for share his experience and the pic to the Tribers!
