The opening on that ego ramp is too big for anyone to enforce people going in and out. I’m guessing there’s no lottery, and the entire field GA,(including inside the circle) 1st come, 1st served.

Just because there is no ramp does not mean there are no barricades. I confirmed there will be a lottery.

U2 360° TOUR REVEALED
The band have today confirmed that their U2 U2 360° Tour will open at the Nou Camp Stadium in Barcelona on 30th June. Sponsored by BlackBerry, it is the band's first stadium outing since the Vertigo Tour 05/06 and follows the release of their acclaimed album, No Line On The Horizon.
Their 12th studio album, No Line On The Horizon, is already number 1 in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Belgium, Finland, Japan and the Czech Republic with further chart positions to be announced this week.
Produced by Live Nation Global Touring, U2 360° will visit 14 cities across Europe including dates in Milan, Gothenburg, Amsterdam, Paris, Nice, Dublin, Chorzow, Berlin, Gelsenkirchen, London, Sheffield and Glasgow before finishing at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on August 22.
The European tour will be followed by dates in North America beginning at Chicago's Soldier Field on September 12th, 2009.
Long-time U2 Show Director Willie Williams has worked again with architect Mark Fisher (ZooTV, PopMart, Elevation and Vertigo), to create an innovative 360° design which affords an unobstructed view for the audience. U2 360° also marks the first time a band has toured in stadiums with such a unique and original structure.
"U2 has always been at their best when surrounded by the audience, this staging takes a giant leap forward. With 85 percent of the tickets priced at less than 95 Euro, general admission floor tickets priced at 55 euro and at least 10,000 tickets at every venue priced at the 30 Euro price range, we have worked very hard to ensure that U2 fans can purchase a great priced ticket with a guaranteed great view" says U2's manager Paul McGuinness.
Arthur Fogel, CEO Global Touring/Chairman - Global Music Live Nation: "Following the overwhelming worldwide success of the Vertigo tour where every available ticket was sold, there is tremendous anticipation for this tour and to experience this revolutionary production. As usual fans will not be disappointed."
"This tour announcement marks the first stage of a relationship and shared vision between RIM and U2 that we expect will lead to new and innovative ways to enhance the mobile music experience on the BlackBerry platform for U2 fans," added Paul McGuinness. "We look forward to sharing more details as the relationship unfolds."
In keeping with their long-standing tradition, U2 will welcome a number of different support acts to the tour including Glasvegas, Elbow, Kaiser Chiefs, Snow Patrol and Black Eyed Peas with additional artists to be announced.
Tickets for U2 U2 360° performances in Milan and Gothenburg go on sale this Friday, March 13th. Tickets for the Amsterdam performance go on sale this Saturday, March 14th.
Full details of all dates and on-sale information as well as a virtual model of the unique production and seating positions can be found here.
U2 360° Tour is produced by Live Nation Global Touring.

If you had a GA ticket, they used a scanning gun to scan the barcode of your ticket. If it beeped and "Vertigo" flashed on the screen it was connected to, you and the person you were with got into the ellipse.

So what if you're with three or four people?

That way you are guaranteed if you put in the work of getting there at the buttcrack of dawn, right? On the flip side, you wouldn't have to get in there at the bc of dawn....or do you still need to get there early?

btw, thanks for your info, this is my first U2 concert

On the last tour, sometimes they let you bring more than one person with you into the Ellipse. I guess it was up to the whims of the ticket-scanning people.

Some people got to take in more than 1 person.

With it being a stadium and so much room i doubt there will be problems with taking 2 people in.

If I get scanned in, I may pick someone else to go in with me besides the person I'm with. I'm not too fond of her.

Oh, sounds like there's a story........

If I get scanned, I will be making someone's day next to me, since I am probably going solo, so I would pick some random person that was nice to me in line.........or is really cute
