How Many Hours did you spend in U2 GA lines?

70 Hours for me and I was only in GA for 3 of my 6 shows.

Again I would do it again.

Dream OUTLOUD. At HIGH VOLUME.
Peace to U2 and 2U

Too damn long!!!

Opening and second night - not a single minute (those were the days)

I got there 10 PM the night before for LA1, 9 AM for LA2, 8 AM for Vegas, and 11 AM for LA3. So who's good with math??? I haven't had a math class in a year, thank God.

Did I also mention I was directly in front of Bono for two of the shows. and at the inside tip of the heart for the third. Baltimore was the killer I was there for 24 hours. I left work picket my friend up and went straight to the arena and was still NO. 46 in line can you believe it. NJ I left the Thursday show got out at 11:00 and got in line for the Friday show they made us leave until four but I was about 30 or so didn't sleep went back to the hotel and took a shower. So that was 11 PM until 6PM. And so on

I don't think I can even figure it out! Somedays I waited 21 hours (got out of one show and got on line) other days I was so beat I just waited about 5 hours. So I'll average it at 12 hours a pop (which is probably right on)and I saw 26 shows GA so thats 312 hours!

312 fabulous hours. 13 days. I think I need to check into the looney bin! And I did see *Ally* (a fellow NYer) on quite a few of those lines!

Calgary#1: 4 hours
LA#1: 9 hours

13 hours total. Well worth it - even the drenching we got in the last half hour in line at LA.

Not too long in comparison to you guys.

Vancouver- 15minutes
London- 10 hours
Slane- 2 hours (but the all bloody day waiting for U2!!)
Las Vegas- 13 hours

25 hours and 15 minutes. As low as that is, that still frightens me. A whole day gone. But it was fun and I'd do it all again.

I only had GAs for 2 shows -- but even so, I spent a little over 25 hours in line:

Chicago 5/16: 6 hours, 15 minutes
Chicago 10/16: 19 hours

And hell yeah, I'd do it again! Anytime.

I had GA tickets for 3 shows.
For the 1st leg I didn't have to be too early in line to make it into the heart, so for San Diego was about 4 hrs. and Anaheim about 5.
But by the 3rd leg everyone knew about the heart so the wait for the LA line was about 9 hours.
My total=19 hours
All three times I was in the heart, in great spots.

2 minutes. One night I was conducting a trade with someone in line. The night I actually saw U2, I arrived at the FleetCenter as PJ Harvey was wrapping up and got a spot just outside the heart as everyone was heading to the restrooms/concession stands. (Maybe arriving late should count as spending -1 hour in line?)

Don't do this to me! First the money and now this! Having regrets? Please don't, it was worth it.
