Hawaii December 9th?? - Aloha Stadium, Part XVI

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 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.

The Edge is in New Orleans right now, so hopefully this is a good sign (that things are getting better) .

Or maybe I'm reading too much into it, but I'll take anything postive I can get at this point .

U2 reschedules stadium concert

Advertiser Staff

A U2 concert postponed earlier this year tentatively has been rescheduled for Dec. 9 at Aloha Stadium, stadium manager Kenny Lum said yesterday at a stadium authority meeting.

The final shows in the band's Vertigo tour, including an Aloha Stadium date on April 8, were postponed when an immediate family member of someone in the band fell ill. Details of the illness and the identity of the band member have not been released.

Honolulu fans were advised to hold on to their tickets and wait for a new date.

The postponement also affected U2 shows in New Zealand, Australia and Japan.

Wow - a date in December! I still would love to go, but it's a bit too early for me to say whether or not that will be possible.

I haven't had any more discussions with my family about spending Christmas at my parents' timeshare in Honolulu, but I have a feeling that will most likely be happening.

Going to Hawaii twice in the same month would be impossible!

You can add me to that list! I'm so happy! Let's hope that day sticks because I just cashed in 35,000 miles from United. Now I just need a ticket and hotel. But those should be pretty easy . . .

Now I can buy Karen a fruity drink in person!

Well, there is a huge marathon the same weekend as the tentative date. It will be on Sunday Dec 10th. So those folks might add to the madness of the trip.


From last year's marathon:

The Honolulu Marathon, held on Dec. 11 [2005], had 28,048 entrants and
24,261 finishers.

There were 5,444 participants in the concurrent 10-kilometer Honolulu
Marathon Race Day Walk.

Some 78 percent of all marathoners and walkers were visitors.

The turnstile count for the four-day Honolulu Marathon Expo (Dec. 7-
10) showed it to be one of the two largest events of the year at the
Hawaii Convention Center.

The four-day count for the Honolulu Marathon Expo was 62,987.

Well, so far the prices for that time look comparable to the prices I had booked April for, so all looks good. Think I will (re-)book stuff this weekend, I can always change it again(!) if need be.

U2 Reschedule Appears Imminent

Thousands of Hawaii fans were disappointed when U2 canceled the band's April 8 concert at Aloha Stadium. But we have some encouraging news to report tonight.

Promoters for the Irish rockers have asked if Aloha Stadium is available on Saturday, December 9.

Stadium officials confirm the date is open, but no contract has been signed with the group yet.

U2 postponed its final 10 concerts, including the April concert here in Hawaii, when a family member of the band became ill. It was widely speculated that the reason the tour was postponed was because guitarist "The Edge" had a seriously ill daughter.

Fans are advised to hold onto their tickets and wait for the new date. We'll let you know when it's announced.

Methinks I'm about to book!
