Find a cheap all day parking away from downtown for like $5-$10. Find public transportation that takes you to Soldier Field. Save yourself $20-$60.

My plan. Park for free at a South Shore Line station in Indiana. $4 ticket to Soldier Field. $4 back to Indiana.

In total, I drive like 5 miles and get all day parking for $8. Trains rule.

Noone is going to know what the hell the weather is really like till the day of! I could honestly care less. All that matters to me is that there's no snow and freezing cold temperatures lol. Im just excited as hell to have U2 open the tour where I live!

Plan on getting to the GA line early on Saturday morning. Have other obligations that keep me from camping out on Friday night. Be interesting to see if anyone does in fact camp out the night before.

Kind of got lost earlier in the thread, but a U2 cover band is playing at The Abbey Friday night. Just something to think about in addition to the gathering at the Hard Rock Hotel.

Looks like the buses might not start running to SF until around 7 or 8am. Anyone walking from the loop earlier than that? Not crazy about going it alone at 3 or 4 in the morning, though I'm sure some at the hotel might be thinking the same.

I wouldn't recommend going to Solider Field before 7am because it can get pretty bad.

But that's just my paranoid self

I was thinking of popping down to the GA queue after the Interference bash. Are they gonna be at opposite ends of the city?

I'm guessing there'll be a couple of dozen campers. There was that many at all the big gigs in Europe.

It's a far walk. But not that far where you can't walk. Just a mile or two. You can just pay $2.25 and take a bus if you want.

I recommend a CTA transit card just in case nobody wants to fiddle around with cash each time he/she gets on a bus

Available at most (if not all) CTA train stops and at both airports (near their respective train stops)
