I know people will be lining up before noon for first night. I believe the stadium will be giving instructions for GA. I have seats so im gonna be arriving around 2ish. Its possible GA holders may camp out as well.

I have been to a few U2 concerts and usually people start lining up as early as 6 AM, for GA, and i have seen the line just grow from there. the stadium may or may not let you camp out. I am debating in how early i want to start lining up. I have a Tuesday night ticket, so we shall maybe see what happens on Monday. If anyone hears of any other details, I would LOVE to know.

I lined up for I think 2 concerts in 360 and the rest of the GA ones I went to (3) I just arrived before doors and found my fave spot which was almost always the same as when I stood for hours. I'm sure for these first shows people will line up, but as they go along, you might see people who frequent more than a few shows hold back. 

 

Honestly, the BEST part of waiting is talking to fans. Met some amazing people standing in line AND in GA.

I'm coming from SF, won't be off work until 5pm or so, no lining up for me. But I'm hoping that with this stage set up to still have a great view even if it means further back in GA.

Someone, if possible, should scope out the venue in advance, some venues won't allow fans to line up on their actual property until the day of the show, so unofficial lines begin generally across the street. There is usually a list made up by someone (meaning a fan) who is towards the front of that line and they will take your name and give you a number on your hand and everyone works together to make it all run as smoothly as possible with everyone respecting one another. One the day of the concert, everyone then lines up on the venue property in the proper designated area based on that number. Its unofficial so you may have someone jump in front, etc but the majority of U2 fans are cool towards one another.

 

Would not surprise me if fans are lined up now or will start in the morning. For Vancouver fans were in line four days before the show starting on Monday for the opening night Thursday show. On Thursday afternoon, people were lining up for Friday's show.

Yeah, someone can show up at 8am and sprint to the front of the line when it opens.  It's usually an orderly walk across the street, though.

Where this policy fails is the electronic ticketing. For example: If the person that purchased the tickets has wristband number 10. When they go in they are required to enter with his other guests. So wristband number 10 is required to enter with their other three guests that may not even have a wristband.

I'd wild-guess that everyone in the group would go back to where the last person in their group is.  Needing to enter together was in the FAQ's when tickets went on sale, so nobody should be caught off-guard.  Although, people will be anyway.

But the GA policy was not posted until yesterday. I've been through this goat rodeo on many occasions but this is the first time you are required to enter together. Oh well it is what it is. Does anyone know if Vancouver used wristbands and how did it go up there?

The info was on TM in December before tickets went on sale.  It was also talked about on the boards.  Not knowing until yesterday won't garner much sympathy from officials.
