I got tickets for the taping on the 15th. They are standby and I will be visiting la with my mom before my junior year of college starts as I was just accepted in to UC Davis and this is our celebratory trip. Since we have never been to a taping and our tickets are standby can anyone give us tips or advice. I would appreciate it and thanks in advance.

Just turn up in the morning and camp out all day. you should have no problems getting in.

Oh thats a relief then.

Like I said, I don't believe that actually.

The tickets that were generated were part guaranteed (which can't be transferred to anyone else now) and partly standby, all in the process of scoring three guaranteed tickets.

You can't have put as many standby onto the site to actually account for all the "lost" tickets now. This is what I believe in.

They'll almost always have more standby people than there are seats for.  Or if you got guaranteed tickets that you're not going to use (or standby), you can always email AU and tell them so they can release more standbys or whatever they want.

Do you honestly think people bother to do that?

I mean I tended to do that so someone else can have them but really? That's just me and how decent I am ;)

Well, it would help if people DID bother to do that.  Just like with tickets to the symphony, if you have tickets and you're not going to use them, they always prefer if people call and let them know so they can re-sell the seats.

I'm sure they know that most people won't bother, but I think that it helps, especially if you know in advance that you're not going to be using them.

It won't go to waste.. Thats the point in standby. there are more allocated then seats available. Just because that certain ticket does not get used, doesn't mean the seat wont get filled.

Am I allowed to give away standby tickets?  I got one for 8/25.

You could always email AU just to be sure.  But like Kazzie says, someone will get that seat, just not anyone that you might be able to give it to.  If you have a person in mind to use it, you could always send them to the AU site to sign up for a ticket, if they're still available.  Or have them contact AU about that date or whatever.

So I was reading that you can't have your cell phone with you when you are attending the taping which makes sense. If you have it with you and they take it while the taping is happening do they keep it with your id? I'm just wondering how all this works as I am attending my first taping soon. Thanks for any advice!!
