Superbowl Village Friday Feb 3nd – Overcrowding

  • 2012-0203


8p – As I stand here on the Pepsi Stage waiting to shoot my 8:30p show, all I can see from the stage is wall to wall people. This is unreal!

I’m not all that sure that there will be a show. The talent can’t get to the stage. Our cameras can’t get here. Nobody can move!

9:43p – The last Pepsi show was finally cancelled. Larry did make it to the stage with 2 cameras. What should have been a 5 minute walk took him a half hour.

Of course, with the show cancelled we had to walk both cameras back. We took a round-about route. Two blocks north, 2 blocks east, and then down to the Pacer stadium.


We had to secure the tripods at the stage because there was no way we would make it back with 2 cameras and 2 tripods with one of them on a dolly.

I was exhausted!
I watched the final show at the Verizon stage from the control room.

This is how it looked Friday night at the Pepsi Stage.
They were packed in shoulder to shoulder with very little room to move.
