  1. Hey Bigwave, The train to New London seems the best option from NYC. It's about a 15 minute ride from there by car so perhaps either a cab/uber/lyft. There also appears to be a bus running from New London to the casino. http://www.seatbus.com/bus-routes-schedules-1/corridor-routes/route-1-norwich-mohegan-sun-new-london-rte-32/ Good luck! - Andrew
  2. I believe every GA patron gets a wristband, as this is what indicates to security that you have a GA ticket. For instance, if you need to use the restroom, staff check your wristband to let you back on the floor. My hunch is the early wristbanding is to accommodate the existing lineup (i.e. get them done early while everyone is organized), while minimizing stress on the staff later in the day. I would expect folks arriving later in the day to be given a wristband upon entry.
  3. If similar to 2015, then folks only going to the second show will start a lineup during the first show. OR it will be started by someone racing out at the end of the first show. These are merely possibilities, not guarantees. That said, this is commonly how it unfolds with back to back shows.
  4. Check-ins are a way to maintain your spot in line. For example, I got a number this evening. In order to maintain that number i check in with the line leaders at the designated times. For now they have been posted as 7-9 AM and PM for Wednesday. Day of show check-in is TBD, but typically it's an early line up to get in order of number. Then the venue hands out wristbands so you can leave for the day and return in the afternoon to order back up by number.
  5. Location is 1 Nashua Street (under the overpass). Checked in about a half hour ago, #s in the 50s. Check-ins are Wednesday 7-9 AM and PM.
  6. I heard it was started this morning. I will be scoping it out this evening after work and can report back.
  7. From my understanding the TD Garden always does wristbands morning of the show, then you can leave for the day (back usually 430-5ish). As you mentioned, that was the case in 2015. This has also been the protocol for other shows I've seen at the Garden, such as Arcade Fire last year.
  8. Hi All, Just to test it out, I wanted to see if my code would work for MSG3 experience presale despite purchasing two tix with my code in November. During the November Verified Fan presale, my code was denied after I purchased my two tix. Today, the code was accepted and was able to pull up 1 GA. Based on the ticket cancellation rules, I did not purchase today's ticket. However, the mods and folks at u2.com may want to explore how to permanently block a code after the allotment has been used up. I can imagine there are some people willing to take the risk at the expense of other fans not getting tickets, which is a bummer. Anyway, good luck to everyone in their ticket buying process. - Andrew
  9. Hi All, I have an extra GA for 6/28 to sell for face value and fees. My friend and I already have lineup numbers, so we'd ask that you be willing to join us early in the morning on 6/28. If interested please send me a PM. Thank you, Andrew
  10. Hi Andy, I have an extra GA for 6/28. My buddy and I already have numbers in line. Would you be willing to show up as early as 8 am to meet us for the morning line up? PM me and hopefully we can coordinate. Thanks, Andrew
  11. The line for GA on 360 was started near the staircase in front of CBS Scene. After a larger crowd started to gather on the mornings of the shows, the group was brought down the staircase to the driveway area leading into the stadium (i.e. the lighthouse and bridge area that opens directly to the field). The nice thing about Gillette is that entry to the field is direct from that driveway, so there is no need to go through the actual stadium concourses.
  12. Hey folks, I would love to check out both NYC shows since I'll be traveling down there. Due to a minor Ticketmaster snafu during presale, I ended up with 2 extra GA tickets for NYC1. Does anybody have 1 extra GA for NYC2? I am trying to swap one of my extra GAs and sell the other for face value (price + fees). In full disclosure, I would plan on trying to line up early for NYC1, so with CC entry any interested parties would have to enter the venue with me. PM me if interested in a possible swap/sale. Thanks, Andrew
  13. Haha, I've seen a few fans brought up over my shows in Boston and NYC this tour. Some have been better than others. For instance, the teen from Boston 2 nailed 'Angel of Harlem.' On the flip side, the woman brought up for Boston 3 required Bono teaching the chords to 'All I want is you' (she apparently had practiced other songs). While one can argue the "quality" of each performance and a given player's skill, I feel that would overlook what is truly a special moment between the band and its fans. So to answer your question... yes, I'm sure these people play in some capacity, but I imagine their skill and experience are variable.
  14. I was in 221 on Thursday. Great show, but most people in my section and the next section were sitting. See my thread "reflections on 7/23." Having done GA for all the Boston shows I'd love to get one more in on the floor.
