Brisbane Australia - Pre Concert Party

Now that Australia has finally been given confirmation that the Vertigo Tour will come here next year,

Hands up all people who want to attend a pre concert party in Brisbane?


Chewie.

I'll try to be there. Brisbane may be the "take family and friends" show for me though, so I don't know if I'll necessarily have any time for any other meetups.

Well, if there's going to be a decent crowd, I may be in.

How would we plan this for those of us who go GA and want to queue all day?

Well, the show's going to be at the Queensland Sports And Athletics Centre, which I take is ANZ Stadium. I've never been there before myself. Is it near any railway stations? And near any good meeting points?

I got this info tonite from someone on one of my U2 message boards...passing along the good word...

If anyone's interested, there's some serious rumours on U2Australia at
the moment. Sydney date's have been locked in apparently for March 30
and/or 31. Melbourne's are March 25 and 26 (that's a huge weekend in
Melbourne - for those that don't know, that's the date's for the final
of the Decathlon, 100m men's and women's sprint and the closing ceremony
for the Commonwealth Games - the Ausies usually clean up at those games
as we only have to compete with the member nations of the Commonwealth)
It'd be a real shitter (sorry for the swearing) if you'd bought tickets
to the closing not knowing U2 where playing and that you where wanting
to see them now wouldn't it! If anyone's asking why that's the date -
there's a bit of a story behind it. As the venue (Telstra Dome) is
being used for some of the events of the Commonwealth Games, they
couldn't get in there any earlier. The following weekend is the start
of the AFL season and the ground's required for that. This apparently
is the only weekend they have that fits the schedule and is available.

Brisbane I heard a rumour is March 22 but is not definite. Only one
date for us too, yet they promised us two initially so I'm a little bit
stressed about getting tickets! Still unsure what sort of format
they're using up here as they're going with the European setup for
Sydney and Melbourne. There's only one venue in Brisbane they can use
if they go that way - ANZ Stadium (where they played for ZOO TV and
POPMART), and recently there's been some serious sound restrictions
placed on that venue due to residential increases in the area, so it's
going to be very interesting. In some ways it would be sensational if
they played at Suncorp Stadium (this is the newest stadium in Brisbane
and was the host of the Rugby World Cup Games in 2003). I also hope
they play the Entertainment Centre and give us Brisbanites the arena
format.

They come here straight from New Zealand (they play Auckland for St
Pat's day as Joe O'Hearli-what's-it (I can never spell his name)
mentioned recently. Apparently official dates are being released this
coming week and ticket sales are scheduled for December 5 - what a great
time of year to have to find an extra $150 for a ticket yes that's also
the quoted price for tickets. I'm not complaining, I'm just relieved
that we're finally seeing them. 8 years is a long time to be sober from
a U2 gig I can tell you!

you can catch a train to a station near the stadium. from there, a shuttle bus will take you to the stadium.

the easier option would be the special bus service that will run from the city centre (usually the bus station under the queen st mall) to the stadium. for the 1993 and 1998 shows, they had regular buses out to the venue and back again.

i hope this will help

im sure i will be in some irish pub in the city calming my nerves before the show!!

also after!
