I'm not happy with it. I was really looking forward to spending all day in line (seeing as how this was going to be spring and not early fall) and enjoying the camraderie with other U2 fans. I think you're right in that the lottery system is going to make things even worse in terms of line-ups. People will get that much more competitive for those wristbands.

Don't get me wrong, I don't want to come across as one of those elitist, whiney U2 fans, but I will miss the fun of the GA line and the fairness of the "first come, first serve" system.

I have had no pop in the house for almost 2 days, and that oj was all I had.

I have to take bottles in tomorrow so I'll get some more then (along with bananas - I knew I was forgetting something!)

No I agree. I think the it will make things a lot worse in term of lineups....people may get really nasty about the wristbands whereas if you're on a first-come-first-served basis there's really no room to complain, you got there when you got there. And I was looking forward to hanging out all day with fans too.

*walks in slowly, with the weight of tiredness on her ankles*
hey all.
Happy Easter
Just wanted to pop in for a nightcap before I go to bed.
*kicks off her shoes at the door and walks behind the bar counter*
It just doesnt look the same without Tim the bartender behind it
*takes a small glass and pours a few shots of brandy in it*
*downs it in one slug and puts her shoes back on*
see you all tomorrow

Go to the tour forum. Apparently there are already 50 people in line at a Chili's across the street from the arena.



Hi Tara. I may need some of what you're having in a few.....

That's exactly what'll happen. People will still line up except it will be crazy early and that much unsafer to be standing around in my opinion. I think this will cause alot more problems than anything else.


I'm off to bed!

*opens up the front door and starts to step out*
It sounds like the stress leading up to the tour is beginning to grip people.
Try to relax.....
*flicks "everything will be alright" by the Killers on the jukebox and walks out the door*

I'm so glad I've got tomorrow off, otherwise me sitting here at 12:38 a.m. with a stomachache would be really not so much fun. (Not like having a stomachache is fun now, but yeah...)

*shakes bottle of pepto-bismol*

Down the hatch!

Good morning!

Not stressing, Tara! Just discussing. It really doesn't matter to me--I'm just excited to be going. Whatever happens besides that is secondary in a way.

I'm off to work! Have a great day all!
