My evenings are open so I can repeat what I did in 2005 and 2015.
Very grateful Peter. We don't take your time and effort for granted.

If U2 can keep rehearsing near you before every tour I will be very happy.

I would go too to hear the rehearsals like I did when they rehearsed for the I&E tour in Vancouver but I am so damn incredibly busy with work and having to find a new place to live before the end of June and life in general that I don't think I'll be able to go any time I am super excited to see them on night one though!

I promise to try not to puke when they play Vertigo if Bono promises not to do the Spanish lessons line.

Ever. Again.

Nothing at BC Place last night. No u2 crew spotting RSD shopping like 2015.

I think we're in business sometime this week. The Van Sun Run is today and it's likely the last major crowd focus to the downtown core.

is that hole in the roof at BC Place just translucent material or is it an actual hole?

It's material. But retracts towards the centre to become a hole. Refurb'ed not long after 360.

I'm guessing the sound proofing isn't that great on a cloth roof as opposed to, say, a traditional retractable roof like at NRG. Might be why they're limiting the rehearsal time in Vancouver
