Hawaii April 8th (& 9th?!) Aloha Stadium Part XII

Hopefully we'll be able to remove the question mark after the 9th very soon, but as the days go by, this seems less likely

Posted on U2Tours.com:

"KPOI FM 105.9 in Hawaii says today that the 2nd Hawaii show will be announced next month."



Second U2 show unconfirmed
Star-Bulletin staff
features@starbulletin.com

So is there going to be a second U2 concert at Aloha Stadium? The rumor mill has been abuzz that it is a go for Sunday, April 9, the day after the band's first concert. That Saturday event is a near sellout, with only $95 tickets still available in the stadium's J and JJ sections in the upper, fifth-level yellow area.

As of now there is no official word from stadium officials on the second show.

If tickets do go on sale for a second show, it will happen around Pro Bowl weekend, Feb. 11 and 12. The thing is, the sale does not want to conflict with talk that tickets for Jack Johnson's Kokua Festival on April 22 at the Waikiki Shell are going on sale that busy weekend as well. So they supposedly will be held on a separate Saturday and Sunday.

Johnson will once again headline the show, which will include guests Willie Nelson, Ben Harper, Henry Kapono, former "American Idol" contestant Paula Fuga and her One Love 'Ohana, and ALO (the Animal Liberation Orchestra).

Random information

» What is the time difference in Hawaii? Here you go: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ If you ask this question on the thread, be aware that you will be receiving this

» The band will be flying to Honolulu from Australia, and the concert here will also feature opening band Rocko & the Devils. Rocko, being none other than the U2 Crew's own Rocko Reedy

» 15,000 GA tickets, 20,000 seats.

» The stadium will be in the baseball configuration, with the stage in the center-field area, facing south.





» Something to consider for GA line purposes. Hawaii's Largest Swap Meet is held every Wed, Sat & Sun 6am-3pm at the stadium's parking lot. This is good for food, restrooms, etc. purposes, but probably a bit of a problem for a peaceful set up.



Looks like we should be ok so long as set up is done in the area immediately adjacent to the stadium.

Yes, there should be plenty of restrooms there. I was at a football game last month and they're everywhere.
I moved here from San Diego a little more than a year ago. Honestly, it was a tough adjustment. Life out here is pretty different than mainland. Some of the things I had to get used to was for the most part, everyone is extremely nice and considerate, even on the freeways! People actually let you in when you need to merge. You don't want to honk your horn or give anyone the finger. It's just not something that is done here and is frowned upon. Also, one thing I did not consider was having to get used to being an outsider. I guess it is sort of like going from being the big man on your highschool campus and going off to college where you don't know anyone or any of the customs of it. It was a really big adjustment for me, and unless you adapt easily to new situations, it's hard.
In retrospect, I dont think though thats particular to Hawaii. Be prepared to be...noticed, I guess is a good word if you're white and moving from the mainland. It was nearly a year before I felt absolutely comfortable here, and now I never want to leave.
As for the job situation, Hawaii has the lowest unemployment rate in the U.S. It hovers around 2 to 2.5%. Competition is fierce though for good paying, white collar jobs though.
That's the Aloha Spirit for you...calling on the bathroom situation! Little things like that make me happy to be where I am.

While there are a lot of restrooms at Aloha Stadium, women should be prepared to stand in a long line. I went to the UH/USC football game, which was sold out, and the women's lines were pretty long!

I wonder if they will add "porta potties" on the field for the GA people. I think that's what they did when the Stones last played Aloha Stadium.

The mix varies by stadium though...contemporary stadiums should have a good mix of mens and womens. I remember from Popmart though that the Ohio Stadium had no "built" ladies rooms believe it or not (at least on my level) - just men's...ladies had to go in a permanent port-o-potty setup within the stadium.

So you two are not actually from Hawaii. You both were born on the main land but live in Hawaii now? Very interesting.... I had a bad feeling about the ladies room that is why I wanted to ask.. I am really nervous about that but I think I will be ok as long as I do not have any cocktails during the show.

Excellent. This means now I have to beat everyone to the hotel, since half of Interference is staying at the same place.

I work at a Marriott property here. I haven't seen anyone mention this hotel yet in the threads.

If I was betting money, I would bet on Hilton Hawaiian Village, or else some hotel far away, but easy to get to like Turtle Bay Resort.
Note that though I do work in the industry I have no clues whatsoever where they'll be. If I hear something though, I'll let everyone know!

I lived in the College Area for awhile, but mostly in Hillcrest, Mission Valley, and North Park.
I LOVE OB! It's so funky and laid back there...and so close to the beach! We used to go party at Pac Shores, Froggys, and Sunshine Company back in the day.

I could see the band staying at a more private resort or private homes on other Islands and taking a short hop over for the show. Princeville on Kauai? Grand Wailea on Maui? (stayed here once during a decedant time in our lives) Four Seasons on the Big Island? SO many to choose from.


ETA: maybe the crew will stay at the Ohana Maile Sky Court and hang with all the Interferencers!

Ooooh yeah, that is a possibility too. It's only a 1/2 hour flight, I would imagine even less for a private plane.
