Kelly you got to be on the floor! That's where the party will be! LOL! Don't worry, any seat at a U2 show is a good seat!

Okay bear with me I'm a first time forum user!  For the Australia fan - I know you heard Chicago is CST - my sister lives in Sydney and I get so confused because we "sprung forward" into daylight savings time, but I don't think they "fell back" for fall yet.  Right now it's 7:04 pm on Tuesday, March 24th and it's 10:04 AM in Sydney NSW on March 25th if that helps. 

For the fan with seats in section 143 I think you said, that is directly to the side of the stage and should be really good seats you can see the floor plan on ticketmaster dot com.

I bought 2 general admission floor tickets today with the Horizon presale code but they gave me a row and seat number - does anyone know what that's about?

I'm saving the other two in the hopes that they add a second Chicago show.

Don't worry about the row and seat numbers. It's just a way to track tickets.
