Out of all honesty guys i got a question. This is my first u2 concert and first ga line up experience. Is there anything to expect and what times you guys are planning on showing up in the morning? (I'm going to day two so if that makes a difference?) I want to get like in the circle.... or pretty close to it.

If you plan to line up, be it for an hour or all day, yeah, bring food. I did GA in Europe this time around and we made sure to have a lot of water, some food, and some little candy (skittles, etc) and whatnot to possibly share with those around you.

I don't know where you're planning on staying, but since I'm doing GA, I'm planning to park at the Millenium/Grant Park garages around the downtown part of Chicago. I think it's like a mile walk from Soldier Field (less if you do taxi or bus, obviously). But the prices max out around $23-$28 for a whole day, which helps since I plan on leaving after both shows this weekend. But if time isn't an issue for you, you might want to look at that one sight and find an all-day parking spot for cheaper and take the train there.

Notice: I'm looking forward to seeing the rock and roll band called "U2" perform at a concert in Chicago this Saturday. It will be enjoyable.

I recommend you all attend.

I suppose we could head over and catch the end of the show if we've got nothing better to do.

Well, that's going to depend on what Soldier Field has to say about that. If they're going to let people camp out or line up pretty early (which might be unlikely), then I'd probably try to make my way over there fairly early. If they're not going to allow that until later on Saturday morning though, then I might try to get there around that time and see what's going on. It's cutting it close, but until they announce something official to some of us fans, it'll be kind of hard to plan something in advance, you know? Guess we'll see!

But yeah, compared to Soldier Field parking or the hassle of an out-of-towner trying to find the right train line at god-knows-what-time, those prices are pretty good for what it's worth. Plus I won't mind walking the extra mile after the show to get to my car and to the hotel for the night after the first concert. The seven-hour drive back to Minnesota, however, after the second one when I have to work on Monday, will be the most strenuous trip of all!

Interesting. I bet they'll have a U2 tribute band or something!
