Both times I have gone, I have been able to have the name changed. You can change it anyone.

He is on my "to kill" list.

I live near Boston. Tell me his name and I'll hunt him down and steal his tickets.

you don't get tickets, you're just added to the A-list. Which is where I'm at.

I was told it has to be done by phone. they were very, very strict on this. They wanted spelling of names exactly as it appears on the DL.

By the way, I have a question. I was told to get in line and eventually tell the line dude who's list I was on. Has anyone been told about a particular color? anyoen know what the color means?

Lists are the intern lists. Everyone gets in the studio. It's just pretty much first come first serve on where you sit. You have to change the name by phone.

Shawn, since you seem to have the most Letterman experience here, question:

Is it true that when they ask you to show up at a certain time (between 4:30 and 5:30 for the 7pm taping) that they will hand you tickets and ask you to return at 6:15? Can you wait in line if you want to and is there any advantage to being there early?

btw, it's probably like leno here in la, and they try to have a diverse audience from all over. with leno you can mail in and get tix months in advance, then stand in line the day of (if u get there early it ALWAYS works) or get tix at universal studios hollywood theme park. i imagine with dave they try to get people from all over the country, and i'm sure there are people from your area going, they just might not be u2 fans. but they have to be dave fans to get questions right!

just got tics to wednesday's taping. if you get karen, she asks you how often you watch letterman (i said 3x a week), and who biff henderson is (the stage manager who is featured in lots of skits). good luck!

My brother just snagged us tickets to Wednesday's show! The trivia question was about Letterman's segment on "Great Moments in Presidential Speeches."

Can't wait!

PS - As an aside, I don't think the band should play GOYB the first night. I expect that the first night will have the most buzz, so U2 should play something new (ideally Magnificent if that'll be the next single). With the album going on sale the next day, it'd be good to show off something else.

(I'm sure they play GOYB at some point during the week, though. What else? Breathe, No Line on the Horizon, and....Crazy Tonight, maybe?)
