If there's no people there, we will wait until about 7 or 8 p.m. for the line. But it's not really thaaat long. For San Diego on the last tour, people (me included) were that a full 48 hours early. For the Elevation tour closer in Miami, people also showed up in the evening two days before. For that one I arrived at 8 p.m. and was 13th in line.

Phew - okay, so I feel a little better. While I wasn't too worried, I all too often forget just how big a football field is and how many people cram into it for GA.

72 hours from now I'll be on the field - ah, its unreal!

Dang, romi, you're hardcore.

For the Sunday show, I'm planning on waltzing into line late afternoon and hoping for on the outer rail or very close to it, and if not, then further back by the soundboard will be fine.

I'm just.... different. You know how some people have to see the whites of their eyes to really enjoy a concert? I'm one of those.

I, Roman, am a rail skank.

Have you been to any shows this tour yet?

I ask because the stage set up is such that one might argue that the best place to watch is not right in front of the stage.

I have not been to a show yet. And yeah, I've heard the very front is not the best spot. But I have to try it, and it's easier to get to the front on a Night 1 than a Night 2 (if you're going to Night 1). The following show I will aim for the outer rail.

But for me, I need a rail. Second row ain't good enough.

I hear you. The outer rail, though, is better than the inner rail. But, if you're front and center, inner rail, it'll still be a great experience....just not as good a view as you're accustomed to. Regardless, kudos to your intrepid approach and I hope you have a great time at both shows. Like me!

I get emails from the U2tour group on yahoo and just got this. Someone talked to someone at Soldier Field.


According to the folks at Soldier Field, the GA lineup will begin at Gate 0 at the south end of the field. They said to access via the Waldron tunnel. GA lineup will begin at 6 a.m.-and they were insistent no one will be allowed to lineup earlier. Security will be out to prevent anyone from lining up earlier...

take that with a grain of salt if you are thinking about coming early. That's a blanket statement that all of the stadiums/arenas have for shows like these.. along with no cameras allowed, etc.
