make sure you leave early whether its a bus or driving. took me over 3 hours to get out there on 360

Was that from Boston? Was it on a weekend? I'm trying to get to gillette at 5pm. Was thinking since it's a sunday the traffic might not be as bad?

I live in Cambridge near Davis Square.  The Burren, near the Joshua Tree, is a better spot.  I'm game to meet there any time or day.

I am also open to hosting up to three people at my condo who need places to sleep (more if the floor is okay for the late comers).

;-)

I have a GA ticket, so I'll be driving  some time in the morning for the show.  Four others can fit in my car too.

I can't figure out how to send a PM (private message) in here.  If someone can let me know, that would be fabtastic.

When you're on the message board, in a thread like this, the user names appear to the left of the posts.  Hover your cursor over the user name of the person you want to message, and a smaller pop-up should appear with some info about that user.  In the bottom left corner of that pop-up is a button labeled "message" - click that, and you're good to go.

I lived in Davis Square for a few years, back around the time of the Vertigo tour, nice to see some familiar locations :)

thanks

great

?

What do you do when on your mobile and you can't hover?

In that case, just click/tap on the user name - their profile will then come up.  Underneath the name will be some buttons - the middle one looks like an envelope, click that and you should be all set.

We went to both of the 360 shows at Foxboro in 2009 - one was on a Sunday, the other, a Monday. Yes, traffic was terrible, even for the Sunday show. I would say 3 hours from Boston is about accurate. 

In 2009, I lived in Wilmington, MA, which is about 40 miles north of Foxboro. The stress of feeling like I would never get to the stadium almost sent me into a panic attack. :P 

The thing about Boston is, most of the time, there's only one main road/highway you can take to get from point A to point B. If there's an alternate route, it's probably even worse than the highway.

It will also take you forever to get out of Foxboro after the show. It's worth it. ;)

When I went to the 360 show in 2009 it was a Sunday.  Driving there wasn't too bad (came from NH) coming home was not pleasant. I am thinking of sleeping in the parking lot until the traffic subsides.

Get there as early as possible. Normally parking lots open around 2 pm, so you can head out early, park and be in the stadium in plenty of time. Gillette is the worst at these events. Also, beer sales will cut off 2 songs into U2s setlist so plan accordingly in that department. Good luck all.
