Ryan Replies to Comments, Questions and Rumors

Ok, so the housekeeping needs to be done. I want to respond to questions and comments posted, so everyone know the deal.

Lee asked:
Is Neil playing with a band or solo? I wonder if the soundcheck means S&G will be on the set list.
So – Lee, as far as Silver and Gold being apart of his performance – it is always likely, but Neil often likes to shake things up and changes the game plan. He knows what he is doing too. I found out that he arrived in the city on Thursday and is staying in a hotel in Manhattan …maybe I’ll tell you where later. He will be performing solo, but that always changes too. Don’t be surprised if he jumps on stage during other performances for an impromptu song.

And pnutsmama asked:
i'm really hoping that since we have a little one that we're bringing the security folks will let us bring her sippy cups w/ milk!? Are you allowed to exit and re-enter the venue to access stuff from your vehicle? Are you allowed to bring a small diaper bag do you think? i would think so. this is going to be great!thanks again!
So, it is going to be a really long day for you – bring a blanket,for when the little one gets tired. Sippy cups may get through – security has been thorough and understanding here on Randall’s Island. The diaper bag should be fine too. As for the re-entry, I have asked security and they are checking… my feeling is that even if there is re-entry, that you will be parking really far away and may not want to walk back and forth.

Also in the celebrity buzz and rumor mill.
Darryl Hannah is rumored to be a guest celebrity and to be introducing the Ditty Bops. Who, by the way, will be biking over to the concert. Look for them on the Triborough bridge!

    two questions: can you buy tickets at the gate? and, is there a schedule for the day (if not specific times, order of the acts)??


  2. Yes! There are still tickets at the gate-mostly lawn seating at this point but last I heard there were a few actual seats left.

    What is the exact schedule of performances?

  4. Hi! There are a lot of us who could not make it to NY. Will there be a simultaneous webcast of the concert?

    Thanks, in advance.


  5. that comment about it being a long day made me laugh- everyday is long with a toddler! this is going to be a really special treat for all of us and i think she's going to have a great time. right now we're packing accordingly while we're letting her nap and then heading up. i really can't thank you enough for all of your help and answers to my questions! have a great time today and thanks again!
