GA entry proceedure

Recommended Posts

I know its early but do you think that there will be ANY consideration for Experience ticket holders? Sure would be nice after all these years of being a U2.com member. Thoughts?

No.

 

You've had the chance to get tickets which many will not and that's it, end of privileges. Once tickets are out. It's each to his own and that's fair.

As small as these venues are this tour and the way the stage is presented to us at this time, anywhere on the floor will be really really good. This isn't my first rodeo, I'm used to being in line hours before the show, (9 hours Seattle 360 and many other shows over the years) and enjoy the fellowship with all of the other fans. I only asked because there were a few places during the Vertigo tour that had a U2.com/fan club only entrance.

Hoping for organization again this year, but really do not want people lining up/checking in 3+ days before the show as it creates a lot of panic

For U2360 in Phoenix, I arrived with my party about 1 hour prior to the concert, walked in and was invited to the inner circle of that concert with no muss or fuss.

 

If you absolutely have to be on the barrier, then you will need to show up extremely early and with running shoes.

 

If you want to have a great time and have the energy for GA, your ticket alone and any reasonable arrival time will guarantee an amazing experience.

I was front row outer rail for 360 in Philadelphia and front row outer rail in massachusetts at gillette stadium and was in line at 1pm day of show for both shows  and it was amazing. best time of my life. It looks like from this setup that there will be a lot of great locations. I'm guessing that they will be using the whole runway for the show so you will be up close and personal for many songs. I have also found that indoor venues are much better for general ga because you are almost always very close to stage wherever you are unless you are under 5 foot 5 and can't see over people.

I have only been to the 360 tour. The Claw stage set up had a catwalk ringing the stage, creating the inner circle between the stage and the catwalk. This had a certain capacity (anyone know the actual figure?) and the first people in the queue would get their wrists stamped. Once they had stamped the amount of people that would fill the inner circle to capacity, no more stamps. If you had a stamp, you were free to come to and go to the inner circle to use the facilities (toilets, buying food and drink, smoking area). But within the circle it was each man for himself, and I'd bet that the people in the best spots in the inner circle, the ones ringing the stage and the inner edge of the catwalk, were those who had been the first to get stamped and probably didn't leave the inner circle at any point. You could not enter the inner circle at all if you weren't stamped.

I went to Dublin 2009 and Paris 2010 and I didn't arrive until about 3pm both times, and I still got stamped. I didn't get the best spots in the inner circle though - I was always floating somewhere in the middle distance between stage and catwalk.

 

However, this stage set up looks pretty different. I can't see any obvious way that will create the different levels of GA that the inner circle did. Unless they set up barriers a few rows back from the catwalk, and do stamps for the people who are going to be in front of those barriers. Otherwise, someone could go from the being at the very front to being at the very back, if they have to leave at any point (toilet etc) and can't get back to their spot. With the inner circle, once you got stamped, you were guaranteed to be near the band all night.
