btw, i think they are on to us U2 fans! here's why....first he asked me what date i wanted, and i said any between the 2nd and 6th. when i had signed up on letterman's site it asked you for 3 possible dates you would want to attend. i signed up for the first 3, and matt signed up for the last 3. then he asked when my flight was and why i was coming into town, i wanted to say to SEE U2!!! but i quickly thought better and said that matt is from ny and we are visiting family, but that i've always wanted to see dave...plus U2 is gonna be on so i thought it would be so cool!

and he TOTALLY could tell i wanted to see U2, because when i answered the question right he said...oh good, you ARE a letterman fan!!!!

anyway, i think they are onto us at letterman...so if you get a call...don't squeal UUUUUUUU2222222222222 into the phone!

Oh yeah.... I remmeber the scramble on line for finding out where they were going to play on NYC in '04, and where The Truck was !

I was VERY lucky because I didn't fit the demographic for the tix giveaway so I didn't even try, but after trying to chase down The Truck for 3 hours and being 5 Avenues westward away from them in The Village when they were going to go south on Hudson St before they turned East on Canal Street to go over the Manhattan Bridge --

>>>> how did I know this >>>

....because while I was still scanning, and listening for the the sound of approaching fans following the truck I suddenly heard, then saw 3 or 4 helicopters in THAT direction being not too high up, nor too fast-- moving in coordination southward ; and it was too early in the day for Traffic Helicopters in that area (The Holland Tunnel) !!

>>>that's when I headed for Brooklyn, and got on the (non-tix over-35, and those unable, or unwilling to get there earlier crowd) GA line!
After one "there's no room left " GA line bout people scattered, but we DID see them heading over the Bridge. And then people got back on line- just in case.

Inch by excruciating inch I got closer & close to the gate, and finally got in, about 30 mins before they got on stage.

So ***GOOD LUCK*** to all of us for Fri/or Letterman.

Hi Dazz. There are still a few days, but there is a tiny part of me who thinks I will get a call. I'm definitly going to be there Monday. Someone posted on Zootopia that she got into the Monday taping and has to be there by 2, so I am going to get there maybe 12:30

I'd have bothered if I lived in NYC....but it'd still have been a big hassle just to see them play a measly song. Seen David before and I've had good luck with the will call process, but it's just not a big thing for me. If a full concert ends up occurring for free in NYC (a la 04's Brooklyn gig), then I'll bus myself over.

I put my name in and asked my friend to do the same for me... of course he wins, but is going to take his wife instead. he lives in Boston, and both of them barely like U2... he knows I'm a die hard and live in NYC... and he only entered because I asked him too....

He is on my "to kill" list.
