It’s a strange sight. Twenty-thousand screaming fans — who’ve spent all day anticipating a show from their favorite artist — suddenly split like the stage is on fire when the encore begins. Despite arriving early to tailgate and waiting through set changes and a few boring songs from an opening act they haven’t heard of yet, beating traffic instantly becomes the most important thing in the world. Is this proper concert etiquette?

For today’s readers poll, we ask how you handle the final 15 minutes of a concert from your favorite artist. Do you leave early? Have you already left by then? Or are you likely to be the last person to leave, never walking out the door before the last note hits the speakers? Feel free to explain your personal policy in the comment section below.
