I don't like that idea. Usually I can be down front and off to the side, but this year's rains chased me into the tent. If seating was blocked off and had to be reserved, many of us would have been in the rain. The seats down front are somewhat bothersome. Friday nite is best without them. I think ticket prices were raised this year for day trippers and that the extra helped reduce that front stage seating. Getting rid of it altogether is my suggestion. I had a great time and this was my third year camping out at the Boogie and Blues. Look forward to next year.
