If you're teenager has a U2 ticket, for the love of God, let them go. I know my parents were always good with letting me go to concerts at a young age, and I'm glad for it.

I was 15 when I went alone with a friend to see the ZooTv show. 17 is kinda old to still have to go places with a guardian, isn't it?

Yeah, I mean, other than R rated movies or bars, where can't they go?

There was a group of 15/16 year old boys in front of me in Boston without an adult. They behaved better than the drunk college guys next to me too.

People at the U2 shows I’ve been to are better than the typical concert crowd so they should be fine. But if it were up to me I’d drop them off AND pick them up. Can’t be too careful.

They should be fine. And they will you for it and remember it the rest of their lives (they better!). You don't want them to look back and say 'U2 were here and I missed them cuz my Mom & Dad wouldn't let me go.'

Carpe Diem!

I've never actually gone alone but I've sat alone quite a few times, and I'd be perfectly happy to do GA alone. I'm 17.

I saw the Stones with just my 17 year old brother when I was 14!! (that was '82)

My 15 year old will be with me on 11-18, but I know he wishes he was going with the beautiful friend he took to Coldplay.

(That was great, by the way, in Nashville at Starwood. Shaun and his date had lawn seats, and his Mom and I had pavillion seats. Teens generally get embarassed when parents like us start singing along, dancing, crying.)
