Paris question
« on: July 05, 2017, 09:33:58 AM »
I'm going to Paris night 1 (and maybe night 2) in the GA. Any advice on whether it is worth getting there early (and if so how early) with regards getting to a decent spot? If you've been to the tour can you enjoy it from further back? It's always a bit of a debate whether to enjoy the day and chill/walk around or whether to get a spec near the front early on and hold it for the day. Is there a golden circle? Any advice much appreciated.

No golden circle, no barriers separating the crowd (except for RZ). Just a main stage/catwalk/b-stage combo.

Depends how tall you are as to whether you'll enjoy being in the middle of the crowd. Personally, I'm short, don't like being in a crowd, so get there early to get a rail spot. You can get 3-4 off the rail without waiting for too long, if that's good enough for you. The main stage is much higher than the b-stage. So being 3-4 people back from the main  stage should mean you can still see the band over the top of those in front of you (though it may be difficult to see over the crowd when you turn around to look at the b-stage). As the b-stage is lower, from 3-4 back from the b-stage rail, it may be a bit more difficult to see the band performing on the b-stage.

But the screen's big, so may be a bit harder to take in from closer to the main stage.

It's up to you how you want to spend your time. You can queue for hours even days and end up at the front, queue mid day and be maybe 4 rows back, or don't queue at all and show up at 5 and be 11 rows back. The b stage is typically spent for 4 songs and sometimes it closes with the last song there. Bono spends time at the b stage while band is on main stage for a few too. Main stage is crazy high and easy to see while b stage is essentially an outdoor "e stage" so you might have trouble seeing it further back.

I've heard the soundboard gives an excellent view.
