September 12, 13 - Soldier Field - Chicago

Folks,

I could not find a thread for this date, so I am starting one.

I hope that we could keep Chicago-specific discussions here, esp. as these boards seem to get less traffic and may not get as clogged up as the other boards.

As of now, I am really hoping to see this show.

This is the destination for my very expensive presale code. Here's hoping my Horizon status can get me close to the stage. Chicago is the best place to see U2. I have seen them at the United Center 6 times, and they are always the best shows of the tour.

I am so pumped.

I've always had pretty good luck with Chicago and U2.

Here's hoping it continues...

I think this might be my favorite city to see U2 in. The band really puts on great shows here (and it's only a four hour drive for me)
Plus my all time favorite hotel and some serious shopping and eating

This time I actually plan to get out and see the city - everytime I've been I've only seen the sidewalk outside the UC and a few other city blocks surrounding it.

I'm quite certain I'll use my presale for Chicago. It seems likely there'll be 2 shows there. If so, I'd like to do seats one night and GA the other.

I've been to all of the museums by Soldier's Field, but I can't remember how easy it is to get there from downtown. Walkable?

go to hotels.com and select Solider Field as the landmark
the are hotels about 0.5 miles from the stadium and its about 2 miles from downtown

actually much more walkable than the United Center is

Agreed!

I'm starting to think I may only be able to do two shows. This is the definete one for sure. Wouldn't miss Chitown and the luck it's brought me.

It is walkable from downtown. I'll stay in the 'burbs, take the train down to the loop, and walk from there.

nurse chrissi, what's your favorite hotel?

Glad people gravitated to this thread. When you find out anything Chicago-specific about onsale dates, prices, or seating charts, please post here!!

I really like the Allerton - great location and not as expensive as the other ones in the area ( still wicked expensive though)

Im in the suburbs but am only little under an hour from Soldier Field so I will definitely be using my presale for Chicago tickets. Saw my first U2 shows at UC it was so awesome
