How long does the opening act for the Black Eyed Peas E.N.D. tour last? I have tickets to the show in Atlanta, which starts at 7:30. I am going to be late to the show, and would like to ask anyone who has seen this tour to tell me how long the opening act (PitBull) will last so we can at least shoot for the main event.

I don't know about this specific tour, but there also tends to be a long delay between the opener and the main act.

Acts in arena shows almost always go on at (Venue curfew time - set length.)

Most venues have an 11pm or maybe midnight curfew, so if the set is 90 minutes and the curfew is 11, the main band will start at 9:30. It's pretty amazing* to watch how all the "spontaneous" encores will happen to wrap up just around 10:56pm every time.

*by "amazing" I mean depressing how all the spontaneity has been utterly removed from big rock shows.

Try Asking Here, at the official Black Eyed Peas forum (under the 'community' heading if it takes you to the font page.) You'll have to sign in, but you can get a username and password on bugmenot.

You should be able to call the venue the day of the show and ask if they have the set schedule. We did this with Lady Gaga last week and got the exact times.
