GA was good...i was near the steps that came down for Cedarwood Road. either end would have been good but GA was good....except for Mr number 6 in the GA line...he was the worst U2 fan I have ever met in 31 years of going to U2 gigs. Pushing against people and threatening to punch people. Really unnecessary behaviour...he was wearing a green shirt with U2 Hewson on the back...if you know him tell he is a @^%#&(*&

thanks :) yeah been going to concerts for a few years now...first U2 gig was 31 years ago so someone pushing violently back against people especially females and being a complete rude &^%*($ is so not U2...I have met some great friends through U2 GA and this guy is not worthy of being a fan. If anyone knows him (as he had been in the GA line) let him know that pushing against people when you have the fence is so not on...and then threatening to punch people who are half your size does not make you a big man.But other than that GA was great-another lovely lady and her son let an 11 year old onto the fence and I was surrounded by other nice people - shame this guy was there with his 'i lined up and no one is getting near my 1.5 metre squae real estate' attitude. Mate I have been in GA before and queued for days...been on stage 3 times with One/Amnesty and you had plenty of room so leaning back into people is not a way to have fun (especially for the people trying to enjoy themsleves) and holding up a banner to obscure views of eople who have travelled from Australia Germeny etc...you have no more right to see or be there than the next person and hopefully next time you pick on someone in the crowd they will have a boyfriend or not be a 5 foot tall female and give you a bit of your own medicine (sorry everyone but I travelled across a few continents and almost 2 days to be there last night and nearly fainted before they started so to have someones ass pushed into my crotch and be threatened is not on)...update I did LA 3 seated (drunk VIPs surrounding made it not so great) but LA 4 GA with some brilliant new friends and was the best of the 4 concerts I have seen so far this tour

a guy nearby ended up pushing him back and not sure if he said anything to him but he was not happy with him and a securty guy stood in front of him towards the end and also got him and his friends to take down their banner but no i was so buggered and was crying just being there so couldnt have dealt with anything further - normally i wouldnt put up with this - and i did shout at him that after 31 years of U2 gigs he was the first a&^hole I had met...I was just standing there and he would take a few steps back and bend down and do the push his ass in my crotch manouvre and pushed back really hard when he already had heaps of space...like with his feet apart almost a metre back from the fence and then put his arms against the fence and push back and when I didnt move (as I hadnt moved - he had) he threatened to punch me and stood really heavy on my feet and was aggrsive to others ...he was like 6 feet tall and I am like 5 feet tall... just so unecessary when there was room for everyone and people right behind and beside me and then he would give a big heave and push me into people ....everyone else round were great though. No GA tonight for me though - fist time seated at a U2 gig. ANd I am a GA veteran so I know what acceptable behaviour is...taken my nieces when they were 11 and 12 to a gig in Melbourne Australia as well as when I had 2 broken legs went in my wheel chair but ended up using my crutches...anyway glad to be there - I didnt make the GA q as had travelled from Australia and arrived at like 1am after more than 30 hours travelling so slept for a few hours before heading down. Was Joe number 1? seen him at a few gigs over the years ... although my first U2 gig was 1984

The pictures do seem to show a fair amount of space.  Also interested to hear more reports as it looked like being right on a rail was perhaps not the best place to be.  Also looked like the stage was only a few feet off the floor though.  Nice for up front to not be so looking up but wonder how that was from back of floor.
