Aside from the typical complaints about this, it's good to see they are making sure it's closed to the public.

Looks like:

JFLL teams get 12 tix (no extra)
FLL teams get 14 tix (no extra)
FTC teams get 15 tix (can ask for extra)
FRC teams get 30 tix (can ask for extra)

Re: Friday Night Entertainment - will.i.am with special guests

They've very carefully termed it will.i.am and his special guests, instead of simply saying Black Eyed Peas.

Wikipedia lists:
Associated acts The Black Eyed Peas, Juanes, Far East Movement, David Guetta, Justin Timberlake, Macy Gray, Planet Asia, Cheryl Cole, Usher (entertainer), Michael Jackson, Jason Derulo

As well, the article links a myriad of other performers he's been involved with over the years.

At the cost of two divisions in the pits, it appears.

Not so amazing.

Why are there only 3 blue FRC fields? 1 is Einstein. 2 are divisions. Where are the other 2 divisions? They're on the upper right side of the map, in the Curie and Newton pit areas.

It looks like they would fit if the entertainment stage (taking up the right half of the dome) wasn't there.

We still get a free concert....we can at least be thankful for what FIRST did for us? I am excited none the less.
