yeah, i'm so glad i didn't wait on getting a room....with the WS, we would have been screwed!

more info from misty at the toyota center...i wrote her back to see if there are any restrictions on lining up, and her response was "No restrictions. You can line up whenever you want."

i need some "expert opinions": does anyone think that if we got there right after or around lunchtime on friday that we'd be getting there too late? my husband could really care less about standing around all day, but i'm not sacrificing my chance to possibly get in the ellipse, either. since it's random selection, i don't know if i'm taking much of a chance or not.

I think you'll be in good shape if you get there not later than 8am, otherwise, it will be the differrence of having a bad view or a VERY bad view. BTW, we're thinking of getting together after the concert at Slainte Irish Pub, which is within a mile from the Toyota Center. Here's the address to their website:
http://www.slainteirishpub.com/index.html
We havent confirmed yet... but will keep you posted.
Anyone interested in going???
Robert

jgreen,
I understand. When me and my wife first met, she wasnt familiar with U2, but after six years of "programming" her toward U2ism, shes a huge fan. She couldnt make it to Elevation with me cuz she was finishing up college... so, basically, she has been waiting four years for this concert. This will be her first.
Robert

ps: she's looking forward to linning up very early at the TC, I told her its an experience in itself.

rich,
I'm not sure how early, but I'm thinking just past midnight. You could use that as a gauge. What time do you plan on linning up?
Robert.

Well I'm planning on going to the Market Square in downtown to watch the Houston Astros play. That is, if they go to a game 5 in the World Series. Right now it's not looking so good. They are blocking off a couple of blocks of downtown and showing the game on big screens. I heard through my parents that they are going to use the sides of buildings as a screen, don't know if that is true. Anyway downtown is filled with lots of good restaurants and clubs and if the World Series is still going on it should be a very busy and active place. Anywhere near Minute Maid Park is going to be crowded. They have a nice movie theater there that shows some independant movies, lots of restaurants there. I do believe The Hard Rock Cafe is still there. Which ever hotel you are staying at ask them what there is to do and see.

Hope this helps a little. I haven't been there in a few years so I'm sure a lot has changed since I lived there.

I'd love to come to the after-concert party, too! Are y'all going to gather at the Toyota Center and go over together or just meet there?

Also, since this is my first U2 concert, I'm unsure of how everything works. I have a reserved seat -- do people usually show up early for that line, too?

Do y'all have any speculation on when the lads might show up for their sound check?

Julie
