That might work - they keep changing closures etc.
Here's a good site:
Road Closures and Parking Restrictions for Sunday, January 18th Welcoming Ceremony - Traffic Advisories - District Department of Transportation

I was hoping for some new album previews.
When Pride kicked in at U23D, I think my heart literally skipped a beat.

And half a million people will stretch a looong way - past the monument probably.

Smithsonian or GW look like the best metro stops - they have a lot of the mall fenced off from Constitution Ave. around 19-23rd st.
So we shouldn't use the Foggy Bottom stop now?

It might be hard to meet up in the middle of 500,000 people

There had better be a meet up. Seeing U2 from 3.2 miles away over 500,000 heads I can take or leave, but seeing you guys is definitely worth the hassle.

I'd like to meet up too, but I have no idea where would be a good place where we could all find each other

What would the native D.C. area people suggest? Trying to meet at the same metro station, then walk to the Lincoln memorial together?

Well, since I'm arriving right as gates open, I'm headed straight to the front, so I can be as close as possible to the stage, so y'all can find me there. My friend(s?) and I are most likely staying for the whole thing, so whoever we miss in the morning we can catch after the show.

It's not clear. Sometimes "road closure" means closed only to cars, sometimes only to non-residents of the neighborhood, and sometimes to everyone (including pedestrians). There are "road closures" planned for between Foggy Bottom and the Mall - hopefully they will be more specific as to the type.
