How far are you traveling to the concert?
« on: April 10, 2009, 01:09:13 PM »
Just thought it would be interesting to see how far everyone is willing to travel to see U2.

We are driving 7 hours to see them. We are going to make it a 3 day anniversary trip, since we are coming up on 18 years of marriage. Yeah!!!!

I have to go about 140 miles round trip-twice in one weekend.

Good thread idea. Wonder who's travelling the furthest? And who lives across the street from a venue?

Train from Montreal to Toronto.  Could have flown in with my personal plane, but I didn'T want to risk bad weather by the show date, and have to pay ridiculous air fees or Train fees.

Flying across the Atlantic and then on to Wembley - that's a few thousand miles.  The show in Charlottesville, VA, is only a few hours away, and I'm attending that one as well.  You only go around once!   ;D  Congrats to Countrygirl on combining U2 w/ her anniversary.  I hope they play a special song for y'all!

From San Diego to LA.  It will be the farthest I've travelled to see them, since all of my previous shows have been in SD.   :P

1148 miles to Chicago and then 522 miles to Toronto... and back.

And dangerous.... it's about 5000 miles from the Easternmost point in North America to Vancouver... plus the distance from Sheffield to there.

I think brisco has us all beat though!
