I'm getting the feeling that a lot of us from the Pittsburgh area will be doing both Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Easy trip to Cleveland. Can't wait for June 7. GA was very orderly for 360 at Heinz Field for 360 in 2011. No reason to expect anything else this time around.

Here are the stadium policies for Wednesday’s U2 Joshua Tree Tour 2017 show at Heinz Field.

Or if you're like me, you're in a state that U2 hasn't visited since 2011 and you're traveling 3-6 hours to see the band play in Pittsburgh and Cleveland.  ;)

Confused about the clear bag policy. Heinz Field website says a clear stadium bag under 12x12x6 is allowed under the clear bag policy. But the email says "The NFL’s Clear Bag Policy will be in effect for this show. Heinz Field encourages all fans NOT to bring a bag into events. If necessary, there are two options: a clear plastic bag the size of a 1 gallon Ziploc bag or a small hand held purse clutch. For more information on the bag policy, visit HenzField.com/bagpolicy."

So can I use my stadium bag, or can I only use a ziplock bag? Help!

We're traveling from out of state and staying at an airport hotel. Can any locals advise us what time we'll want to leave for the concert? Google maps says it's a 30 minute drive, but I'd appreciate input from anyone who actually knows how long it takes. We're taking Uber and we're regular seats, not GA. Thanks.
