August 14th at Wembley

Where is everybody staying on the above?

Managed to find a hotel 6 miles from wembley but at £20. Travel lodge heathrow, if anybody else is there then let me know and we can get a taxi to and from the hotel to save costs.

Also, is there any fan meet ups before this gig???

When are they shipping out the tickets for this? I'm in the US and trying to book travel arrangements, but thats a little hard to do without ticket in hand. Can't wait to see Elbow and U2 on the same bill.

I think these are being shipped mid July, but don't quote me on that!!!!

I've found a hotel for 22 pound per night but its 6 miles away from the gig. Tube or taxi is in order.

Message me if you want details. We could always share a taxi to cut costs, maybe even fly home after the high of the gig!!!!!!


Let me know

Was able to pick up some GA's on stubhub for the 15th so definitely wanna stay close.

Unfortunately the seats I got for 14th I bought through the normal sale and have to wait for them to get mailed to me. I can't believe they are delaying this so much- never seen that happen before.

Am getting the train on both the 14th and 15th

I've always found that in the UK they've sent the tickets really late. I won't start to get edgy for another week or so.

Is anybody going out for a few drinks after?

Be good to meet up with people, especially after the high of the show

Kensington is fairly central, just a mile beyond the West End where Leicester Square and Soho are, so you'll be fine for getting back to your hotel afterwards.

I think Soho may be the best place for post gig beers as it's central and accessible for people staying all over.

Would probably be up for drinks after the Aug 14 show but would be flying home the morning after Aug 15. I'm getting antsy here in the US without my tickets and still haven't booked anything!

I'm staying at the hilton hotel right next to wembley stadium for £88 p/night. It might be a bit high but atleast i dont have to worry about gettin tubes and taxi's there. Especially after the tube strike they had a month or so ago. I wouldnt wanna take the risk.

I'm also gettin annoyed about the tix. They said it could be as late as 7days before the gig and they say not to ring up before 3 days before the gig if they havent arrived. TM is w*nk!

Hilton sounds like a good idea, is there a Marriott near by as well. I have some vouchers that could be used.
Why do they hold onto the London tickets for so long?
When i went Twickenham last tour it was the same, but my friend bought tickets for Sheffield and got his within a few weeks of purchasing them.

Just hope there isn't a postal strike!!!!!

Hopefully everybody from overseas gets there tickets beforehand, stressful times ahead i see lol

im not sure about a marriott. and i have no idea why they hold onto the tix for so long. It stresses me out worrying about whether i will get them in time.

and i forgot about a postal strike. i bloody hope not. TM should sort something out if that happens because that isnt our fault.

we should get the tix within the nxt 3 weeks cos its only 4 and a bit weeks till the gig. woo, cant wait!

I`ve just changed my hotel booking. I`m now staying at the Wembley Plaza (Hilton) on fri and sat nights. Its closer and hopefully better that the crappy B & B I was booked in! We just have to hope the trains don`t go on strike that weekend though I know there are alot of engineering works on the tube that weekend - as usual! It will be chaos
