Attention L.A. Concert Goers, Doors will open at 6:30pm.
« on: May 24, 2015, 05:51:10 PM »
My Wife just received an Email from The Forum in L.A. that Doors will not open until 6:30pm.  The average doors opening for the previous 6 shows has been around 6:00pm.   The Email does not say why other than informing us that doors open at 6:30pm, with a show start of 7:30pm (we all know U2 don't hit the stage till 8:15pm) or so.

Just wanted to pass on the information as it may be of interest to some.   With all the L.A. traffic that happens, I wonder if they will start a little later than the normal 8:15pm average start time?

Yikes! My daughter won tickets in the Chegg One contest and was told to arrive at 5:30 to check in and get her tickets and swag bag. Hmmmm

Thanks for the heads up. :)

That still may be the case for her, this was just general admission into the arena that the doors open at 6:30pm.  In the same email they mention a pavilion that will be open at 4:00pm to eat, drink etc.  They mention a few food companies that will be there selling food etc.

That sounds good. I want to check out the GA line and merchandise, maybe eats too, but will want to see the band arrive to the venue too.   8)

Anyone know how much parking will be?

Oooh yes and I'd appreciate details about the band arriving.  Don't they usually get in around 3 or 4pm?

Ok so I need help with GA etiquette. Did GA for 360 tour and had my friend with me and we had hard tickets.  I'm meeting someone who has the tix on their phone, 2 GA tickets.  If there are NO wristbands, can I queue early and he can find me in line and get in line with me?  Or is this considered bad behavior??  He can't get to the venue till 5, but I can be there all day, so this is why I'm asking.

If you're nice to the people around, most fans won't mind. U2 people for the most part are friendly and love to share stories. I'm also very worried about the whole wristband thing. I was told no wristbands but now fans are saying there is. I wrote to the forum a 3rd time and all they said is wait for the rules to be posted on Tuesday....

If there aren't wristbands, then yes, you can meet up with your buddy.

Yeah, fair enough.  I'm going night 3 so I guess it will be well established by then!  I promise I'll be friendly and nice :)

The only rules that apply will be the rules that the Los Angeles forum puts in place FANS
have no authority or jurisdiction while waiting in a GA line.
Most of the fans who make up their own lists ans wristbands have been to countless shows
already and think they are entitled to dictate to the rest of us what we should or shouldn't do.
