Dozens of members of the BTA Army, as fans call themselves, are camping out to hold their spots in line.

“We have been here since Tuesday,” said Sarah Smith, also of Manhattan. “We’re really dedicated and we really want to be there in the front, seeing them and loving them.”READ MORE: Senate Moves Forward With Stimulus Bill Marathon After Nearly 12 Hour Stalemate
