I'll likely be there before 5! Probably waiting around a while before I can get the tickets, so people should come say hi if you feel like it.
oh well then I might head over sooner too! I'm gonna be in the city all day so I'll honestly just show up the earliest that would be fun. If people want to hang I'm totally down!

Do you think they'll let us wait in line then get our Chegg tix Chillian?

I thought this kind of stuff only went on at one direction concerts. The mind boggles... a lot of effort to be 5 feet closer.

At the end of the day, you're right.  There's really not a bad spot to be had if you show up an hour before the gate opens.  Just kind of annoyed is all really.  Took two hours out of the work day.  My pet peeve is being sent on wild goose chases.   I live here, but I hate seeing those travelling the day of or out of town being jerked around by these people.  Not cool.

General U2 Discussion / Re: U2 vs Rush vs Iron Maiden
« Last post by acrobat62 on Today at 01:06:11 PM »
Though I'd kick start this thread again, especially as it relates to Rush and U2.  Rush is on, what may be their final tour, and as such is somewhat of  retrospective.  I have not seen it, but reviews are good and the set list starts recent, then goes backward in time, playing some real chestnuts not played for some time.  I saw Rush twice back in the 80's, never thought 3 people could produce so much sound.  I have followed them off an on over the years and find their most recent album pretty good

The I&E tour is somewhat the same, but presented in a different way, almost as theater as apposed to a concert.  I have seen this show and been an ardent U2 fan since '83 and seen them many times in those years. 

Not sure this is a valid comparison as their styles are much different, but they are among the few bands still together after 30+ years, still touring and making "relevant" music.

News and Rumors / Re: bono still has it with the ladies lol

I agree, I admire him for who he is what he stands for and the great music him and the band produce Bono is one in a million he is so humble honest and caring. He has great qualities. When you put them all together you get a very attractive individual.

Is it just me that thinks Bono says "the VAST of the rock stars" rather than "LAST" on (the outstanding) Kite. Heard somewhere along the way it was sung in one take so guess this could be the reason to leave it in.

When you are there, Vertigo is fun. That sequence of the first four songs just rocks the whole house and gets everyone in the mood to rock.

I got really frustrated by the phones held during the air at Chicago 3. I was around people who felt like they had to constantly have them up filming....

The only times I had my phone out at my shows was when I was Facebook messaging you during Pride. :D

LOL! That was fun!! I had my phone on airplane mode, though, cuz every night I was low on battery life so I was saving juice to take a few pictures. (I said a few! I didnt video a single thing and I only took a dozen or so pictures the whole show.)

Think it was Lorijane who said these line leaders were letting their pals in line, ahead of others on the list at one venue

Personally I find the whole thing laughable, how can you be in a queue without queuing just by putting your name down on a list....

It isn't my thing to queue but if I arrived at a venue at 3pm for example and decided to queue and somebody tried to stand in front of me arriving at 4pm just because they put their name on some list earlier they wouldn't be staying in front of me....


Not me!!!! I assume it happens, but I've never seen it.

I've only been to four shows total( one 360 and three I + E), so I know very little. :)

It was Belisama, apologies!

No worries!
