I meant to take note of all the songs she sang, but wasn't able to due to the craziness in the pit. I do know she did NOT sing FMWUTTT. I'll admit, I don't know some of her older/unreleased material, so I can't confirm YCBTB. Not sure about UATW either, or if she went straignt from West Coast to Born To Die. There was a short pause before Born To Die, too. Also, she stopped West Coast about 30 seconds in due to sound balance problems, which is when she did an a cappella sound check (which was beautiful -- same one she did last year at Hollywood Forever, but I don't know what song it was; she didn't sing as much of it last night as she did at HF).
It was kind of cool that she sat down to sing Chelsea Hotel. I suppose it goes with the more subdued nature of the song. She did NOT sing National Anthem, or (thank goodness) Carmen. No Body Electric, either, which was surprising, so Cola was the only representative from Paradise.
Since some people asked, I'll post my personal account of the concert here:
I arrived on-site at 8:45 AM. Parking lots were closed, so I parked almost a mile away and walked down the hill with my chair, umbrella, and backpack. I was in line right behind a group of people who had arrived at 8 AM (surprising that no one had arrived between them and me). Everyone was in the same line to start, regardless of the ticket type. I estimated that I was about #50 in line. We did not do the number thing, but the line was very calm and everyone was respectful about maintaining their places. They had portable bathrooms for us, too, although no handwashing station, so I was glad I brought hand wipes and sanitizer.
Thanks to @buster for the tips on what to do, so I had plenty of food and water with me, and the chair was an excellent idea. We were told later that sometime around 2-3 PM, Natalie from VIP Nation (part of LiveNation) would come around to separate out the VIP people from the regular ticket holders. The group I was hanging out with had one Silver VIP ticket holder among them. I had also sold one of my extra VIP tickets to someone else, who arrived around noon or so.
Around 3 PM, Natalie came by to find the Silver VIP ticket holders. After confirming our IDs, she gave us all yellow numbered wristbands. She said we would be lining up at a separate location at 5 PM to go in at 5:30. At that point, we no longer needed to stand in the regular line and were basically free to leave or whatever we wanted to do, as long as we were back by 5. The girl who bought my extra ticket had also parked up the hill like me, so she and I walked back to our cars. She went to a store to buy some things, and I ran home (I live close by) to drop off my extra food and my chair/umbrella.
I got back to the theater around 4:15. By then, the parking lots were open. I parked and found where the VIP crowd was, and found my other two silver VIP friends and hung out with them. Another friend of mine had agreed to buy my other extra VIP ticket (last-minute extra since my wife opted not to go to the show), and arrived around 4:45 and got in line with us. We were ID-checked again and led inside the gates at about 5:30 or so. We then had to wait inside for security to tell us to proceed. Another 30 minutes, and then we were led to the entrance to the pit, where we waited again for another 30 minutes or so. At about 6:30, we were finally allowed into the pit, and we scrambled for good spots.
I managed front-row pit! I was just to the right of the stair platform. The original schedule had Courtney Love coming on at 7:30, and Lana at 8:45. That got pushed back about 45 minutes or so; Courtney was scheduled for 8:15 (she came on closer to 8:30), and Lana at 9:30 (she came out at about 9:45). Courtney was fun, though I don't know any of her music and it was hard to understand the words. She did a good cover of Stevie Nicks' "Gold Dust Woman."
In the pit, there was an annoying guy behind/next to me. He was basically behind me and the girl to my left, but he had a hand on the barricade. He kept trying to push his way up to the barricade, and at one point during Courtney's performance, had somehow managed to get up there and push ME back. After Courtney was done, though, I muscled my way back up to the front and held on for dear life. We held our positions waiting for Lana to come out, which she finally did.
Every time Lana even got *near* our side of the stage, I could feel the pit crowd surge forward. It was like being moved by current in the water; sometimes I felt like I was going to be picked up and moved. I had to hold onto the barricade and really hold my ground to avoid being pushed back. The annoying guy I mentioned also had smelly hair, which didn't help every time his head got in my face. My one friend that bought my 2nd extra ticket had to leave about 2/3 of the way through Lana's set, another annoying guy that was behind her got her spot. (He was annoying because he kept yelling "Lana, fuck me!" and "Lana, take me backstage!" He was yelling the same thing to Courtney, too.) But it was all good. The concert itself was fabulous.
As I mentioned, I was just to the right (stage left) of the stairs. Unfotunately, when Lana came down off the stage, she started going to the left (her right), and when she came back, she stopped 3 people down from me. When she went back up the stairs, she said she'd be back, but she didn't come back down again, so I didn't get my selfie. I also was unable to personally hand her the CD some friends of mine and I had made for her, so I gave it to one of the security guys at the end, who put it on the stage with some other stuff people had given them for her.
Other than that, the concert was really good. I liked the covers she performed, and the fact that she sang some previuosly unreleased songs. Courtney Love was fun, too.
I'm glad I got to experience the whole arriving early and getting into the pit thing, but would I do it again? No. Not even for Lana. Once was definitely enough. My lower back is not the best, and by the time it was over, it was *really* sore from standing so much. My feet were hurting, too, and my chest/abs were hurting from being pushed up against the barricade so much. It was worth the discomfort one, but I wouldn't do it again. Hopefully, I'll have an opportunity to meet Lana someday, but time will tell.
