Dress rehearsal question

What are the chances of U2 doing a dress rehearsal concert on May 13th and inviting fans into the arena to watch? Didn't they do this on 360 and the Vertigo tour?

They did three nights of rehearsals in LA prior to the San Diego opening in 2005. The final night of LA Rehearsals (3/26/05) had a planned dress rehearsal concert for radio winners. They later came out for another 2 hours after that rehearsal from about 10pm-Midnight. I wouldn't necessarily count on it, but it certainly could happen.

I'd hang around the arena the day before if you can. They will possibly invite fans inside to see the dress rehearsal.

That's cause you declined Larry's invitation for his annual New Years Eve party this year. What a night you missed.

Two replies before this thread derailed...might be a new forum record, or not, I've only been here about a year or so.

To answer your question completely off my mostly drunken (and totally baked) memory, I believe that yes there was a rehearsal that fans were invited into on Vertigo. I have no idea about 360. Nobody knows about this time around, including the band, and if they're in a good mood and feel good about the quality of the songs, they may invite some people in but almost certainly won't plan it in advance. I wouldn't hang out outside the arena all day to find out, but it's possible.

TL;DR - nobody fucking knows and it's probably way too early to speculate about it

On 360 there was a dress rehearsal concert the night before Opening night. (6/29/09) But NO fans were allowed in! It was for friends, industry people, sponsors, charity organizations only. That was strictly enforced.

On Vertigo people waiting outside L.A. Sportsarena were let in. (I was at the dress rehearsals)

I deeply hope that the band rehearses at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. But that's not for sure. They could easily rehearse in a different city and then move to Vancouver and then just doing a soundcheck there on show day. On Elevation they didn't rehearse at the Opening night venue.

Would be sweet if they did a dress rehearsal in Vancouer and let fans in. I'll linger around Rogers Arena on the 13th

I'm curious as to what time fans will start liing up for GA on this tour.

There's a few dozen folks outside MSG already with Sharpie numbers on the backs of their hands.
