We have pitch 2 GA's and I planed to go there around 3 pm ...


I remember queuing up around that time for the 360 croke dates but who knows with croke. The residents seem to kick up a massive fuss when there's a gig on

There's really no need to get there that early, typically the locals don't turn up till much later, there is no gold circle and plenty of decent viewing points if you rock up at 6pm

On the previous 2 tours, Croke have allowed people to queue on the grounds, mostly to get people off the side streets, my guess is they'll do the same this time as well- just not very early!

I hope anyone who hadn't gotten tickets was able to snag some of the ones that Ticketmaster supposedly released at the last minute.

We rocked up at about 5.30pm in Pitch 2 and got a great position near the b stage for the start of the show then relocated behind the red zone for the rest of the night

Very fun show, and amazing atmosphere. Bummed there were no setlist shakeups, but the "home town" crowd was the best I've ever seen at a U2 show by a good amount. Was so fun to observe and be a part of.

Little Things is such a bad way to end the show. For a band that seems so sensitive to crowd reaction (ahem ASOH) I can't believe they are still ending with it. It's the most "...wtf, that's it?" Moment ever. Even MOS had a bit of a singalong going for people who didn't know the song. Just play one more song and end with IWF. That's what they did at LA1 and it was an awesome way to end. Meh, I digress.

Was there no setlist party here?? Lol

Amazing show again. I went to London 2 and I wouldn't actually say the croke show was any worse or any better then that. But the whole u2 Dublin experience is so good. Dublin goes u2 mad. Temple bar is probably the best place to drink on earth.

Was hoping for sort of homecoming and I thought they would play it but I really didn't want to see bad be thrown out for it so I was happy enough with bad.

Little things isn't a closing song but I really wanted to hear it so I wasn't to bothered it closed the show.

Proof again that beautiful day/elevation and vertigo go down as good as any other songs.
