  1. Would be great to organise a fan Meetup .. are there any tribute bands etc playing on the Thur night maybe?
  2. Going to Berlin gig on Friday .. wonder if there are any fan get togethers on the Thur night? Tribute bands etc?
  3. I'm passing messages on to the buyer who isn't a u2 member. They said thanks but that was a dearer ticket than they wanted. Thanks anyway - I'm sure your friend will find a buyer. Enjoy the gig.
  4. Looking for two tickets .. if seated need to be together .. can meet up anytime. PM me to organise. Thanks, Neil
  5. Just checked toilets on level 3 and there's a group hiding out for the Zoo.com 2022 Tour. The list is only on toilet paper but it's up to 148. Most of the cubicles are pretty full. They say drinking water, if you're not fussy, is ok but food may be a challenge.
  6. Absolutely agreed with what you've written. Controls have been put in place for good reason. Yet it is true and we all know that people have and always will queue. The residents, authority's and I imagine some fans don't want, at one end of the spectrum, a campsite and yet I expect the authority's accept that eventually some kind of queue will form. Personally - and having been there to see it - I'd take the view that a handful (I'm talking 3-5) people discretely making a list and then telling fans to leave are serving both the venue/residents, by preventing a messy queue forming early, and the fans by allowing some kind of pre-queuing to happen. I suppose it's a compromise but to me it looked reasonable to both sides.
  7. So took a drive to Croke park to see what was going on with the queue. (You can have a look at a croke park map to see the areas I'm talking about). The entrance to Pitch 1 and 2 will be from St. Jame's Avenue/Foster's Terrace streets. There's some security around that area and there's absolutely no queue developing (if there is it's hidden away in a pub or somewhere else). Outside the Croke Park hotel on Jones' Road there's a few people collecting names and handing out numbers for Pitch 2. They're not doing Pitch 1 only Pitch 2. The lady there who's managing that list is staying in the hotel and just on the wall outside. She's spoken to security and they're letting her take down a name and give out a number providing that people get the number then leave. She's telling people to come back at fixed times (so for everyone that has a number so far they come back at 8am to sign back in etc). I was talking to the security people and they agreed that she's doing a decent job taking names and stopping a queue forming. When I left she was at 178 but people were coming in 2s and 3s all the time so I suspect that will grow quickly. I walked around the back at the car park (back of Davin stand) and around the streets and it was dead. No sign of a queue for Pitch 2. Hope that helps someone. If anyone finds out where the queue for pitch 1 has started would appreciate a PM! Lots of security and they told me they'll be moving anyone who tries to gather - they'll be there all night at all the key spots. So they're taking that no queuing thing seriously fyi. Nice skies around Croke Park. Definitely the atmosphere is building!
  8. I think that stevieob is joking. I suspect that he wasn't hiding in the toilets for 3 days .. I suspect there aren't 650 people queuing in the Hairy Lemon pub. I suspect ... Perhaps the truth is that no-one knows where the queue is starting. Does anyone actually know anything real?
  9. I've pitch 1 tickets for Saturday but hard to know what to say when you hear there's 400 already in that queue. I don't know if I want to laugh or cry. Suppose it's at least good to know Even if people queue overnight Friday (If you fly in Friday or if you work) there's basically no chance of a rail. You're at best looking at a few rows out or behind red zone. As someone who's done it many times down the years I respect those who queue and earn their spot but I also Kind of feel a bit sorry if I'm honest for people flying in, starting to queue on Friday - typically that would earn you a rail in other venues. At least people reading this will know what to expect now. Wow. It's gonna be an amazing gig no matter where on the pitch you end up. It's a different show in different spots is all.
  10. Just back from Barcelona. I have to say that the U2 Valencia fan club did an amazing job with keeping the line. We were there from 6am (297-298) and we advanced in cordoned areas throughout the day. Each time you'd see several 500+ would have sneaked into the group (basically people who had jumped from an overnight-6am wait to coming at 2pm). Up until the final queue (literally beside GA door) there were perhaps 50+ people who didn't earn their place in the queue. U2 Valencia, with the support of the crowd, did a wristband by wristband re-queue lining up 1-50, 50-100 and so on until we all had our fair place. Awesome job guys. In Twickenham I was in the late 900s and enough people broke into the queue so that when we were allowed in early (3-3:30) the last 50-100 people weren't actually allowed in with the early list. Basically the 50-100 who broke the queue took our places and (I'm guessing) when the barrier computer said that 1000 had gone in early they just stopped everyone until the GA 4:30 time. I'm saying this to agree with the last poster. The queue is only as good as the people enforcing the list. Has anyone experience of the Dublin early queue?
  11. Anyone selling a pitch 1 ticket? In Kildare Ireland but can meet in Dublin before or day of gig. Thanks, Neil (real fan btw I'm writing this in Barcelona the day before the Tuesday show and would love to see the home show).
