How far are you from the stadium? Will you go hang out to see what you can see and hear?

I live in Vancouver. I imagine rehearsals will take place in the old Pacific Coliseum. This is where they rehearsed the I&E tour and also where I saw the best concert of my life (arena Zoo TV April 1992). BC Place is a stadium and the local soccer team plays and they will be using it till mid April. Also a lot more expensive to rent a stadium then a unused arena. My bet is the band rehearses at the Pacific Coliseum and then take over BC Place to build out the stage a 1-2 weeks before the first show.

If they're going to rehearse indoors why waste the money when they can just rehearse in a studio? They were certainly rehearsing when that set list leaked. I think theyll go straight to rehearsing on the actual stage now. They rehearsed outdoors on 360, after in studio rehearsals

I figured that it would be time to get into rehearsing time.
Great fun speculating.
Hope you get to hear and maybe see a bit.

They won't rehearse in an Arena for a stadium tour. It'll most likely be at BC Place for production rehearsals.

That's what I'm thinking

If that's the case then the equipment in the picture may as well stay in storage for another few weeks as BC Place won't be available till mid April. Even at that point I doubt they would rent the stadium for a month. Most likely they come to Vancouver beginning of May.

I could see them renting a stadium for a few weeks.

Yes that would be the most logical thing to do, renting stadium.
