why Twickenham and not Wembley Stadium

Recommended Posts

why not Wembley in London - that weekend is free, but they're playing Twickers, which sucks to get back from after a concert - and surely these days it won't take more than 3 days to break down Adele's stage from the 1st July...

At a guess, with Tottenham playing all their games there next season they could have reached the limit of events Wembley can hold in a year.

Twickenham is the worst possible venue for them to play. It's a nightmare getting back into town from there. Plus the really rubbish thing is they have a curfew there because of residents.

Which will basically mean the concert starts earlier when it will probably be bright sunshine, the lighting show won't kick in until much later in the show, just like 2005.

As Bono said on Vertigo tour, we have a strict curfew in place and they don't give the rugby any shit.

 

Wembley, the London Stadium or even the Emirates would have been better. But still I'll be there both days ;)

Yes have to say would have preferred a different location in London (or even better one nearer me- shame they aren't doing Elland Road like on original tour as I'm in Leeds) as remember it being a nightmare getting back into town the last time they played there and indeed when I saw the Stones there.

 

I did try to get a cheap hotel nearer to the stadium but had no luck so had to go for a hotel in London so will have to battle through the crowds!

Those from the UK looking for hotels, and wanting to avoid central London, I've always found the Heathrow hotels quite well placed for gigs and rugby at Twickenham.....

They tend to be far cheaper than Richmond / anything back towards central London, and it's only about 5 miles (20 min taxi / Uber) to the stadium. Good for the following morning if you're staying over, straight onto the M4 or M25 to get home, and also on concert day, you'll be coming in from the opposite direction to central London, so crowds should be a little easier in theory.

See you all at Twickenham......

Glad we booked the Hilton up the road as soon as the second show was announced. No problem for us, but it booked solid right afterwards.

I booked the easy hotel out at heathrow. Far from fancy (the room I've booked doesn't even have a window) but I've always found easyhotels great for when you just need a bed, shower and somewhere to keep your stuff. It was much cheaper than anything near the stadium even factoring in getting a taxi/uber. I'm also arriving by coach into heathrow and have booked the bus which goes to/from the hotel so hopefully everything will be quite hassle free.

Also staying at a Heathrow Airport hotel, very cheap. I'm from Ireland and I'm getting married in July. All the European dates are while I'm on honeymoon, except London night 1,which is the day after the wedding. So we are getting married in Cork on the 7th July, flying to London on the 8th for the show, flying back to Cork the morning of the 9th,then flying to Sydney from Dublin later that night.

The things I'll do just to hear some rarities like Exit and Trip Through Your Wires... ☺️
