How Early Will You Arrive at Soldier? For the first show, probably an hour or so...Second, not sure yet.  Maybe a few hours.

Ahem.  So I suppose you want me to save you a place in front of The Edge then, hey?   >:( >:(

Noon or bust, my man.

The Ritz or the Four Seasons, but my guess is the Ritz on North Michigan Avenue.

sh** guys, I just found out a couple days ago that my flight doesn't get in to Chicago until 11:30 on Saturday, which means, If I'm lucky, I'll be at Sodlier a little after noon. I have GA, it's my first concert... I'm worried I won't be close enough to the stage. Any comments/ advice. Thanks.

That seems kind of late, doesn't it.  Considering the 60,000 plus people that are going to be there.  Especially knowing Chicago and how traffic and such is (I am from Chicago)
