does this sound like a good idea, I'm not too sure when I should be getting there by
My only concern is getting there that early and just stand there for 6 or so hours. Should I wait until after the concert or order new legs anyways?

Does anyone want to try and meet the band at the hotel? I'm up for it, but don't know if it will happen.

I did last tour. And I stood for 10 or so hours continuous. I slept for 10 days.

Do you have inside scoop to share?
My guess is that they are staying at a private residence. Bono has so many connections in that town.

Maybe he's staying at the cydewaze & Mrs. Edge residence.

I think so. That's what I was going to try to (except on the blue line) . I think the blue line gets there a little later (assuming I get on the first train, that's a big if) but if you see a blond woman in a red Florida State hoodie, that's me

eta: Looking at the map, I might take 1st St. back to 19th St. if that security checkpoint is the closest. So much strategic planning here

I must be getting VERY old because (and this statement would have been unthinkable from me about 10 years ago...) the thought of these crowds and the cold and the metro and the waiting and the lack of toilets for only ONE song (which will probably be Pride, a short song at that) that we won't even be able to see over the billions of tall people is starting to give me cold feet!

I have no problems at all waiting for hours under these conditions for a full concert, or even a mini set of 3 songs but one? I know Paul is in this mostly going for the meet up component with friends, so I really hope we can set something up.

I think I need a pep talk.
