GA check in
« on: May 25, 2018, 09:32:33 PM »
So I have GA for the 6/9 show in Uniondale, NY. Iíve been checking the Facebook page and I have some questions ..

When are people generally lining up for GA?
where can we get the sign in/check in info?

Iíve only done GA for Joshua Tree St Louis and well.. we all know how that turned out...

Iím just worried cas I have a business trip and will be flying home from Ecuador 6/8 landing around 10am at JFK. I hope that wonít make me be too late for a decent number?

Any info would be appreciated

If one wants to be at the rail, he'd need a number. In Chicago were like 400 with numbers, and they filled up the first two rows (rail and second row).

I know.. but no need to see the screen live. I'd rather see the band up close. I was at the rail in Chicago, I almost could touch Bono, so close he was. I can watch the screen images later on YT  :)

I showed up without a number on Wednesday night and could have been 2nd row along the catwalk on Edge's side if I wanted to be. We hit the floor around 6:45.

I was at the rail of the catwalk. To be honest, not the best choice as sometimes you can't look to the main stage and B-stage when the screen is down. Once it's pulled up, you have full view at both stages. Next time I pick B-stage.
I think if you want to be at the rail of either B-stage or main stage, a number could be helpful.

Unless you're fairly short or have someone in front of you, you can see the screen... but just not with the view that people at the back of GA or the side seats have. You can't use the app either since the effects won't go with it so close to the screen.

Just get to Nassau as quickly as possible. Go to the front of the line with the person with clipboard. Get a number. Go rest at hotel, go back around 4.

Thanks for all of the replies... my goal is a stage rail so I am hopeful my flights go smoothly and I can get to Uniondale by noon. I live about 1/2 hour away from the venue..

Where will I find information about where to get the numbers?

Your answers and help are so appreciated..Iím so upset about this business trip because it is cutting way too close to the show!
