I know this is probably annoying to the regulars, but what time does the band take the stage after Florence?

I tried FAQ and search, but couldn't find anything. Thanks!

They usually go on a few minutes after 9.

thanks for the reply about the concert start time...

now i haven't been to a concert in quite some time (probably 15 years or so), but it seems weird that the opening act would come on at 7pm (the apparent start time according to our tickets), and i'm assumming they'll play for an hour or so - wouldn't u2 take the stage closer to 8pm???

are there major gaps between the opening acts and u2 performing??? once again, pardon my ignorance but i haven't been to a concert in a long time

No, the opener has an hour, then the stage has to be setup for U2. Usually the stage setup is ready by 8.30-8.45.
Some openers, notably Snow Patrol, have had longer time for their act.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

in Seattle and Anaheim 2 (possibly more, those are just the 2 shows I've seen this leg), Lenny Kravitz didn't actually start until 7:30 or so. Which was nice, as there was less time to wait before U2 came out.

yeah, I don't think Florence came on until 7:15-ish in Baltimore. She didn't play too long either, though she was good. they reminded me a lot (in a good way, not necessarily musically but sort of ) of PJ Harvey.

yeah I liked this too. You can tell that Lenny is such a veteran performer, he knew what he needed to do as an opening band. He wasn't just performing for himself, he got the crowd riled up at the end of his set for U2. And it makes me wonder if he didn't time his set ahead of time to figure out the best time to take the stage and still leave enough time for the crew to set up. He gained so much respect from me on this tour (didn't he open for U2 in another tour as well?).

Florence's set seems shorter, so she could probably take the stage at 7.30 as well.

Need your help
Hi guys and gals. I'm a reporter at the newspaper in Moncton and I'm doing a story on folks coming here from "away" for Saturday's concert. So if you are traveling to Moncton for the big show, I'd love to talk to YOU, yes I said YOU, even if just briefly. There is nothing too complicated about this, I just need to know your name, where you are traveling from, how you are traveling here, if you've been to other U2 shows, what you expect of Saturday's grande finale, whether you will tour around Moncton and see the sights or just take in the show and go home, where are you staying, that sort of stuff.
Feel free to PM me your phone number and I'd be pleased to call you, or you can reach me via email at fosterj@timestranscript.com, or you can PM me your answers, or you can ring me up at 506 859 7133.
Quite simply, the story is about the people who are coming here from afar, their past U2 experiences and their expectations for Saturday's final show. All comments graciously appreciated, but please be aware I need your name and hometown or I cannot use them.
See you at the show!
Kindest regards,
Jim

Getting some responses already. Thank you so much those who have contributed. I can sure use more though!

As an afterthought, I might be able to help you folks out if you need any info on the area of the concert or the area in general.

Jim, I'm forwarding your message on to some friends I have who are going and asking that they pass the message around. I know several diehard, longtime fans are going who I'm sure would love to share their thoughts about this final show and experiences from the tour thus far.

Thanks, I Move!
The boss says I gotta finish this today so your help is MUCH appreciated.
It is pouring rain here now, with thunder and lightning. We're getting the bad weather over with now so our guests hopefully get nice weather on Saturday.
Cheers,
Jim
