Will there be a secret show in NYC?
« on: February 23, 2009, 09:33:58 AM »
With a week long residency on the Letterman Show, and the past practice of small secret shows (Irving Plaza in 2000; Fulton Park in 2004) is it conceivable that U2 will do something similar in NYC in the next week?

 I suspect they may! I am so close that it will really upset me if it happens and I can't get there!!! My friend was there for the Vertigo thing when they sang driving down the street. I missed her call and missed all the excitement!! I caught it on the evening news. That was so frustrating. I really do think they have something up their sleeves. I wonder where the GMA performance will be. I do not think it will be Bryant Park. GMA does all their concerts there and U2 are special!  I think they need a different location. I was thinking Battery Park by Ground Zero but I don't know if that is really possible. Maybe Central Park? We'll know soon enough.

rumors suggest they're playing a gig on a rooftop in London....somewhere that the Beatles played years a go.  Can't remember exactly.

If we told then the secret show wouldn't be a secret anymore, would it? ;)

Are they going to announce where the GMA gig will be?
And isn't there a strong possibility that they play in the studio?

The studio's certainly still a possibility.  I'm sure they'll announce beforehand where they're playing.

I missed Paul Mccartneys secret show two years ago in NY. I dont want to miss this one. Although its kinda cold to wait too long outside, this morning here its 14 degrees, well in upstate ny anyway.

most likely they will be in the studio because it is very cold here.

according to this:
-Free and Open to the public
-most concerts take place at their studio
-entrance is a first come first serve basis
-arrive no later than 7am (i.e. camp out)

But what I still dont know is whether THIS one will be inside or outside, where a 1st come 1st serve basis isnt needed

And the NLOTH album Wikipedia page says the concert will be "in" Times Square
 
The NYC forecast for March 6th is SUNNY AND 46 DEGREES, plenty warm for a concert

I was at both of these  (Irving Plaza 2000 and Fulton Park 2004).  ;D  I signed up for Letterman on the web site, but no call back for tickets.  :(   

Hopefully I will be able to get into the ABC thing next week, but since they gave so much notice (although have not said exactly where it will be), it might be tough to get in.

I wonder if I could talk my boyfriend into driving from Albany to NYC, i think its about a two hour drive, maybe a bit more. He's not a longtime fan though. But if he really loves me dont you think he should take me there? Just kidding...I havent been to the city myself in decades...well if i did go i would take the camera and shoot lots of pics for everyone.
