    "Hundreds of people were turned away from the first taping of NBC's hit unscripted variety show America's Got Talent on Tuesday afternoon at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, even though some held tickets printed out in advance weeks earlier.


    Organizers told some fans they stopped seating after about 1,200 people were let inside, leaving hundreds outside, including some who had seen their tickets marked by other attendants with assurances they would be seated.
    Fans who had arrived as early as 45 minutes before the noontime taping said they were turned away, though people in front of them were allowed to enter with dress code violations — attendees were forbidden to wear T-shirts and shorts or carry cell phones, among other restrictions.

    The tickets, which fans obtained by signing up for a specific showtime online, did not say that ticketholders had to arrive early to be assured a seat.
    Worst of all for some, attendants made little effort to inform the crowd when they stopped seating people about 1:15 p.m., leading some to wait in line even longer before realizing they had no chance to enter.
    "This was horrible ... just an outrage," said Jerry Cabot, who drove to the Mahaffey from his home in Boynton Beach, spending his 77th birthday waiting on the asphalt road behind the theater for more than an hour. "
