I think there is high probability that it will happen, I hope so!

For which concert? It depends on the location how many people there'll be.
But since the inner circle holds about 2,000 people, noon is often early enough (sometimes even later).

Hey I know theres heaps of threads around about this but i may as well just add to this one for now.

My question is I'm coming with 3 mates who are not full on fans or anything just coming as a get together bit of fun, so they are of course not willing to be there really early.

I was wondering if we got to the stadium (also etihad) at say 2.00pm would our position be very far off the catwalk because i know we wouldnt get the inner circle etc. What is an average stadium position up for grabs at a time like that?

Thanks!

I hear you ultraviolet92! I figure being towards the back or on the side with a less dense crowd may be better for my lower attention spanned friends , yet being my first u2 show the temptations just going to be there to go as close as i can and I don't know how hard that will be to counter against!

Ha all too familiar! I'm 17 as well (Just 18 by the big day ) and all my friends have come from nowhere wanting to go to it now, after laughing at my excitement all year! Funny how they changed after seeing pics of the claw! It will be a great night, I figure if I get my mates there then they'll be sold for life, they don't realise I'm doing them a favour, yet!

Sure, every show's different, & you never know how a crowd will react, but I think you'd have a pretty good chance of getting into the inner circle with a 2pm arrival time. I've seen shows were arriving after the gates have opened has still been early enough to gain access to the inner circle.

There's lots of GA punters (who haven't checked out info on fan sites) who think the inner circle is only for VIP or RZ. They don't know that they can go through the barriers by the front CLAW legs, down behind RZ, behind the stage, & into the inner circle. Instead they race for the outer circle.

Depends whether you want the energy of the inner circle, or the better view of the outer circle. I think a 2pm arrival time should get you a pretty good position in either. Hard to tell, but maybe 3-5 people off the rail at the centre of the outer circle, 2-3 off the sides. Maybe 10 off the front rail in the inner circle (less on Adam's side), & 2-3 off the back rail.

Obviously it's just a guess. You'll just have to play it by ear, & plan a few options. eg. I prefer outer circle, over back rail of the inner circle, as I'm short, & looking over the catwalk helps with the view. Also, for the sides, back rail of the pit is fine, but a side view for the front of the pit is not (the stage is too high & limits the view of those up close & side on).

Good luck
