U2 Boston Meet Up!
« on: January 15, 2015, 08:20:14 AM »
As U2 and Boston collide on July 10th, U2 fans are invited to The Harp, one of Boston's best watering holes, directly across the street from the TD Garden.  Our meet up will begin at 4:00 PM.  Come on down to The Harp to meet other U2 fanatics and me, U2radio.com blogger Joe from a Cup of Joe series.  Look forward to seeing you there.

Nice, I'll be there the 14th and 15th, and I know some other fans going for the first round of shows.

I'm looking forward to the shows, and The Harp*
Perhaps they* will hire the local tribute  band Joshua Tree they do a good job.
More thank likely there will be a radio broadcast live (WZLX )from The Harp as well.
Remember radio ...

Th Harp is the place for those interested the place with the most space, typical pub food and cold beer at reasonable prices.Its located opposite the main entrance to the Garden.It's a very popular spot.On Backstreets (Springsteen fansite) I've organized pre show Parties for a Cause prior there with 7 bucks going to The Greater Boston Foodbank.I contact the GBFB and get a link to their website, and start a list on a thread called;Pre Show Party for a Cause.Bruce & ESB last area show we raised enough $$ to feed over 2,400 people a meal. I know the Harp Mngr would gladly dedicate space,and a cut in wait line for a Pre Show Party for a Cause, at no cost!! Remember donations go directly to Foodbank online. If interested I'm thinking perhaps Friday or Saturday show. I actually have tickets for Tues & Wens love the last night! Please post if interested and what night,also how many in your group.

It'll be a pint (at least) at the Harp before Boston 1, then!

See y'all there!

FYI - for those of you have never been to The Harp, I popped in there this past Tuesday for a drink before the Rush show at the Garden. Pretty nice place, comfortable, not wall to wall people like some places can be. Should be a nice meet up spot. Boston traffic is another story - I'll take rush hour Manhattan any day over Boston.

Too funny I did the exact same. Liked the Rush concert as well! while I was there the mngr told me he has booked our local U2 cover band Joshua Tree for all 4 nights prior and will play after on both weekend nights.They are talented and fun.

As mentioned above it is a big place ( 2 levels ) .. Without a designated meet up spot inside most likely a meet up will not occur...
That is why above I was indicating if people want to say hello it needs to be a bit organized
I can get permission to put up,a sign inside there, my suggestion meet at the end of the back bar / main level specifically close to the window.
If more than 10 ( include guests ) put their names down for any of the 4 nights here I will put a sign there / also they will not have to wait in line. as All area bars will have lines after 5 here's the good news they serve decent pub food and you will spend a lot less than at The GAHDen.

That sounds like a great idea - there will be 3 of us coming to the show on the 14th. Not sure if I can do any of the other Boston shows.
