They're only allowed if you attach them to your pet elephant and bring him/her into the stadium.

Ok, seriously, this has been a fun read, but I have real questions

I just found out -- Dh surprised me with tickets for the Saturday show!!!!!!

We are driving in from Pittsburgh Saturday morning, and will arrive about 2 or 3 at the stadium. He thinks we can "tailgate". Can we? Will other people be parked early partying and having fun? I've never got to a concert quite so early, and don't really know. Sorry, lol.

It's good to know about the oxygen thing. Cause I'll need some, too I about needed it when he told me, cause I almost hyperventilated!

Good question about tailgating. I would call Soldier Field to ask about parking on the 12th and tailgating restrictions.

Say whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa? No cameras. Heresy! I'd call Soldier Field about the parking. It may be true but it also may be easier NOT to park there and walk from the South Loop. Its hard parking there as there is essentially one way in and out as if you go EAST you'll get really wet.

apparently the stadium is being used for the circus next weekend, so they're moving the show to the north parking lot.

oh cool, lol!

no, i was wondering if she meant that the stage would be on a sideline instead of an endzone. but i don't think U2 would switch like that after they sold tickets.

I find this hard to believe. If your source is Bono, he lies anyway.

So, I gotta ask. Is anyone camping out this time around? I was planning to, but scanning through the threads, it doesn't look like anyone is, lol. Which is great - I was worried about parking and finding a place to keep my sleeping bags and such. And stupid me, just realized there's more room for GA folks at Soldier Field than at the United Center.

I have seats for the first show, GA for the second.

When is the Hard Rock meetup?
