Annoying Hollywood idiots inside the Honolulu ellipse

So, we finally get to Aloha Stadium at about 7am on Saturday morning, and there were already more than 1,000 fans in line who had camped out overnight, hoping to get inside the ellipse.

The day turned out OK, met a lot of really cool U2 fans, but it was long and tiring. We ended up getting inside the ellipse all right, but a load of fans who showed up just a couple of hours after us did not make it in... too bad, right?

Well, the reason those loyal fans didn't make it inside the ellipse was because many hundreds of special orange ellipse wristbands were reserved for so-called VIPs, most of whom were a bunch of TV actors who showed up right before U2 took the stage.

These D-List actors and other Hollywood types simply walked into the ellipse without having to wait all day in line like the rest of us plebes, then stood there for most of the show and talked.

Shall I name names?

- Alyssa Milano and her goober boyfriend

- Cindy Crawford and that husband of hers, whatever his face

- Gabby (appropriate name) Reese and Laird Hamiliton

- Tim McGraw, sans Faith

- Mira Sorvino

- A bunch of no-names from that TV show "Lost"

- A large collection of cocky Hollywood types with their shit attitudes

- Other Hollywood idiots


Edge was up there playing this beautifully soft version of "The First Time", strumming his guitar quietly while Bono sang the lyrics sotto voce. It was really a magical moment for me, except for the fact that everyone around me was chatting loudly to each other and ignoring the show.

What the fuck are these people doing there inside the ellipse?

Does U2 need to kiss these people's asses in order to get things done, is that the game they have to play now?

When all these semi-famous people started waltzing into the ellipse at 8:45pm, you should have seen the pissed off and disappointed looks on the faces of the fans hanging over the barrier who just missed getting inside the ellipse earlier in the day after standing in line for hours outside.

Does Pearl Jam do this sort of crap, too?

I understand letting longtime U2 fans like Winona Ryder and Lars Ulrich up front, but I don't understand why U2 needs to play favorites with all these other nobodies at the expense of their true fans, who would've made the atmosphere at the back of the ellipse far better had they been there instead of these arrogant Hollywood twats.

If U2 needs to curry favor with those people, they should reserve seats for them. Save the ellipse area for U2 fans who spent a lot of money flying out there to Hawaii, then waited outside in line for hours under the hot sun, only to end up stuck behind the barrier while Alyssa Milano and her goober boyfriend sauntered in five minutes before the show began, asking me the best way to cut through the crowd so they could get to the front of the stage.

Of course she said that as a typical bitch from Zagreb or should I say "sponzorusa".
I am sick of all that kind of people here and everywhere else.

BTW. I met so many great and interesting people on this Vertigo Tour.

Good luck next time!

That sucks all kinds! I HATE the treatment those bastards got when the real fans are the ones that have to wait in line in the rain, snow, heat, cold, whatever.

And Alyssa Milano is a moron.

Somethings you shouldn't get too good at...

Well unfortunately this kind of thing happens at all concerts, this is the world we live in, we created it, we gave them the currency.

I'm not sure it always happens at U2 shows at every venue. At a MSG show I attended, I read afterwards that Lenny Kravitz did not make it into the ellipse and hung out by the soundboard at the back.

how much ya wanna bet the guys to the side of the stage here didn't get 10 club tickets...




it might suck, but it's just a fact. sometimes it's the band themselves who let celebs they know in, sometimes it's the band's management, sometimes it's the venue.

i've walked right into the ellipse without waiting on line all day half an hour before show time, too.

"A large collection of cocky Hollywood types with their shit attitudes

Other Hollywood idiots"

What's the diff between these two types of people?
