The weather might have been too blustery for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to come to town, but as of 9:30 a.m. a dozen people were braving the conditions and camped outside the Blue Cross Arena for the Green Day concert tonight.
A few were waiting for the will call ticket window to open, but most had tickets — they just wanted a front-row spot.
Lori Perrego and her 13-year-old daughter left their home in Pittston, Pa., about 2:30 p.m. Sunday and have been camped outside the arena since about 6 p.m. They stayed warm with lots of blankets and sleeping bags. The family has done this several times.
