Oct 23- What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas

Not sure if this is a confirmed date yet, but if it is, I"M THERE. I have never been to Vegas and my husband will have plenty to do while I'm in GA line and at the show. Airfare from Cleveland is quite reasonable ($180-ish round trip). Post here if you plan to be at the Las Vegas show on October 23!

Do you think there's any chance the date of the show will change? I also want to book a room as soon as possible. It would be nice if U2.com would hurry and announce the rest of the tour dates.

I already have a room at a timeshare which I can cancel if I find any good deals. Flying over with airline miles so this trip will almost be very inexpensive!

I have no idea where the good places to stay are. Where is the venue - anywhere near the strip? Is it a college stadium? Can I get there if we don't rent a car? Someone local will show up here sooner or later and post everything we need to know.

We took a cab to Sam Boyd Stadium from the Hard Rock for Popmart and then hung around with the rest of the stranded after the show until some buses showed up.
I have no idea how the parking is there, but I imagine sharing a cab might be a good idea to get there. Then, just see what happens after the show.

I'm going to try to get tickets for the Vegas show, but I'm not totally certain if I can make it or not. I've seen Popmart, Elevation and both Vertigo shows in Las Vegas, so it would be nice to keep the streak alive.

I wouldn't worry too much about making hotel reservations too soon. If you do, keep checking all summer and fall until the show, because it is easy to find that rooms get cheaper. Just don't lock yourself in with a prepaid/penalty-for-refund reservation site. Often with Vegas, your best price is directly from the hotel's web site. And, almost all hotels have a full refund policy on your deposit up until 1-3 days before you arrive.
But, grab cheap airfare as soon as you can. I hate to think how much I've overspent through the years because I didn't jump on a great airfare when I saw it.

I wouldn't necessarily trust locals on hotel info. You need hardcore Vegas visitors for that.
Traffic info though, hell yes. There was a total clusterf*** for traffic the first night of Vertigo Vegas. We got on the phone with our local friends, and they helped talk us out of the traffic jam around the Strip.
