Welcome to Finland
« on: August 17, 2010, 01:46:59 AM »
U2's next destination: Finland!

I am so thrilled that my English skills aren't enough to describe the feeling I have!   ;D ;D :o ;D  8)

Last time I saw them in '97, now 13 years of waiting is almost over   :D :D :D
They should come here more often - don't want to wait another 13 years (-> 2023) to see them again...  ::)

Planning to drive past the stadium today on my way home, just to see a sneak peek. A concert poster, a truck - anything will do.

Drove past the Olympic Stadium on my way home and saw: THE CLAW!!!  :o :o

They had put fences around the stadium, so you couldn't get closer than 200 meters.

Välkommen linasd, hoppas at du trivs här i Helsingfors!
(Welcome linasd, hope you enjoy Helsinki)

It's been 30 years since I've been to Finland (and 13 since seeing U2 live).

I envy you guys for sure.

Hopefully, I'll get to visit Finland again someday and see U2 if they come to East Asia.

Does anyone know how where the line for GA is and how many lines there will be? Where is the best place to stand in line?

Lina!

The GA entrance should be at the eastern side of the stadium (opposite side to the tower). I'm sure you'll be able to spot the line if you're not the first one there.

I just got all crazy and bought myself a Red Zone ticket for Friday, I've also got a GA for Saturday. Good to see one show close and the other a bit further away to also be able to see the screen (as I'm going there on Saturday with person who doesn't want to go there really early to get places right in the front.


 ;D ;D ;D ;D
