Btw, I got an official word from Solider that for the U2 concerts...The "Parking lot" (i.e. the outside queue) will open for fans to start lining up around 3pm. The doors will open at 5pm for getting into the stadium.
 

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)

Oh I know...see, my best friend works at solider field, that's how I know...and he says they're going to be super strict enforcing this. But I have a feeling I'm still gonna get there around noon.

The CPD doesn't set rules for cameras and beach balls.

However, no beach balls officially.  And only point-and-shoot cameras.

Oh yes...I was planning on breaking the rules anyway. I would wait for days to see U2...


And actually, I have been.  ;D

Officially, but how lenient are they going to be is the question...
