General U2 Discussion / Re: Default U2
« Last post by ian ryan on Today at 11:29:26 PM »
Beautiful Day is the purest, most direct example of what U2 is, in my opinion.
Two questions:

1) are people still lining up at midnight? Or has numbering shut down for now?

2) Does everybody who already has a number have to show up again at 6am?

Ok, a third question that I don't think anybody here can officially answer but I'll ask anyway: what constitutes "your party"? I paid for two tickets, but they were on separate transactions. Do both of us have to enter together, or can he use one copy of the card while I use another?

The people that run the lines need and deserve to have their a$$es kicked.  Unfortunately, that is not an option.  It's a very small group of overly privileged fans with money to burn that travel from city to city and set up shop because they think they're U2's "chosen ones" - when really they're middle-aged trolls on a power trip. It's pathetic. The men put women in charge of the "lists", because they are least likely to be physically attacked should a disagreement occur.  Meanwhile the men hang back in tents like trolls and intervene when necessary.  It's absolute bull$hit.  And if you dare confront them or don't comply, they throw a hissy fit to security and verbally/physically intimidate everyone in line.  I don't have an issue with six people starting a line, but holding fifty places for their d*****bag friends who aren't even there is not cool.  I wish someone would clock one of those ba$tards and teach them a lesson.  They're bullies, plain and simple.

3-The Joshua Tree
4-All That You Can't Leave behind
5-Songs of Innocence
6-No Line On The Horizon
9-Atomic Bomb
I felt like it was similar to the rattle and hum look and thought, damn Bono you look the same 30 years later!

I'd be pretty bummed if I travelled half way around the world for a U2 show, & the lotto put me around #1,000. I'm short & wouldn't see a thing. I'm prepared to put the time in, to ensure I can see. I think an early morning lottery would be a good compromise. There wouldn't be anywhere near 1,000 people there, so no matter what number gets pulled out you'll end up in a pretty good spot, & you can spend the day in line. I think a day in line is ok, sometimes it's actually fun. Would just get rid of the multi-day camping craziness, & the line runners putting their friends at the top of the list.
Beware the Sharpie scribing, Notepad carrying unofficial line forming Walking Dead!!! They will make you form an unnecessary line the night before the show. They will demand you have your entire party with you or you will not get a number. They will make you check In at 7pm and again at 4:45 am. They will tell you this is for the good of all things General Admission. But it's really so they can control the line and be the first to enter. Resist! Revolt! Or the madness will never stop! 2+2=4!!!!!!

I'm not sure who the other clowns are, but that's definitely Elton John on the left.

Do I win a prize?

It would be great if tour management took this over.  I was looking at Bruce Springsteen's GA procedure for last year's show at MetLife(see below).  I like it.  If anyone attended I would be interested to hear how that worked out.

 2:00 p.m. – Parking Lots and Box Office Open.
 2:30 p.m. – Approximately 1,000 sequentially numbered wristbands will be distributed. Guests must be present and have
a ticket to receive wristband. Guests cannot reserve/pick-up wristbands for other guests. Once you receive a wristband,
you do not need to stay in line at the MetLife Gate; however, you must return to the MetLife Gate for the random number
selection at 4:15 p.m. These wristbands will also serve as your floor access wristbands so they should not be removed until
after the show.
 4:30 p.m. – A starting number will be randomly picked by a fan, announced and displayed on a placard at the MetLife Gate.
All fans with GA tickets and numbered wristbands should begin lining-up in numerical order in the lane labeled with their
range of numbers (i.e. 1-99, 100-199, etc.). When beginning the screening process, the fan holding the wristband that
matches the starting number will be the first in line (i.e. if #’s 1-1000 were distributed and number 818 is drawn, the line
would start with 818, then 819, 820, 821 through 1000 then 1-817). When the starting number is announced the line
within that range will shift accordingly.
 If you arrive after the wristbands have been distributed or after 4:30 p.m., you will line-up in a secondary line that is firstcome,
first-served at the MetLife Gate. There is no place-holding (“saving spots”) in this line. One person = one spot. If you
want to enter the field with a group, you will need to be together when joining the line. The Secondary line will not receive
a numbered wristband and will be escorted to the field after the first 1,000 wristbanded guests.
I was at that Springsteen MetLife stadium show and that's exactly how it works. It's great because it keeps the sharpie carrying super fans from starting lines the night before because the lotto will determine when you enter no matter what time you arrive. Just show up when they start giving OFFICIAL numbered wrist bands and wait for the lotto pull. It's a few hours versus 24 hours. People have lives, they don't need to "queue" in line for 2 days. It makes the show miserable when you've had to wait in line that long. Better to be fresh and ready to be an energetic audience than tired from sitting in line all day. It's not necessary. Bruce has a great system in place. He needs to call Bono and let him know what's up.
