GA Line for Dallas Show

Recommended Posts

We are just over a month out from the Dallas show!  I can't even begin to say how excited I am!  My friends and I will be coming in from out of town for the show (Arizona and Utah).  The Utah group met the Arizona group in the GA line during the IE tour in Phoenix.  I love that friends are made in the GA line!

 

We'll be doing GA again for the Dallas show and I was wondering if anyone has any info on the GA line process in Dallas.  Phoenix had a great set up - everyone was given a number the night before, you had to be back by a certain time to check in or you lost your place in line.  Then the stadium personnel came out and gave everyone wristbands with your number.  You had to be back by a certain time to line up in order.  It was a great set up.  Everyone was really great about making sure there weren't any line jumpers, etc.  Wondering if there will be a similar set up in Dallas?  

 

We're all so excited and would love to meet up with fellow fans while we're there!!

Hello romanorton,

 

The only time I have been to AT&T Stadium to see a concert was the last time U2 played there in 2009 shortly after the stadium had opened.  I got in line around 3 am and was in line all day.  There is a Walmart near by that we walked too to go to the bathroom and buy snacks.  There are also a few restaurants near by.  The fan running the line wrote a number on everyone's hand.  BTW I was able to get the exact spot I wanted on the outside rail at that show.

 

We'll probably have a better idea of what it will be like based on Houston's show a few days before.  It should be much more organized that that IE Phoenix 1 show (which I was at).

 

just one month to go until Dallas, yeah!

I did the line in 09 too and I've done the line at the AAC in Dallas as well as lines in Chicago, Charlotte, NYC and STL. 

 

Dallas is NEVER as organized as other cities about leaving the queue in my experience, nor are people generally as kind. In fact, I've found them to be kind of rude. But I wasn't at the front with the 3am people. But as long as you're with a few people you know so you can leave someone in line you shouldn't have a problem. Additionally Cowboys stadium is always "special" and has it's own processes (like no purses allowed) In 09 they were adamant that people could not show up the night before or "camp out" on the grounds of the stadium. However, I got there at about 10 am in '09 and got in line and got a spot on the outside rail exactly where I wanted because once you get in the walk is far down to the ground level and they're usually letting in 10+ people at a time so you can make up some ground on the way down (they do not let you run, but I saw people running last time). There are porta-potties that are large (handicapped accessible) on the cowboys lots and a walmart and a few food places (I think there's a Cici's across the street from where we queued last time, they were clever and brought pizzas over to the line that they were selling for $8 or something). If you don't have a pass for a close lot the walk back to your car can be FAAAAAAR. Last time I had my husband come by after work to pick up our chairs and cooler because it was almost a 2 miles to the car and back.

 

Hope y'all have a great time.

Thank you both for your responses!  GA line is always an interesting experience!  haha...  I'm excited to start seeing reviews of the shows, best locations to stand, etc.  I agree that we should (hopefully) know more about the GA line set up after the Houston show.    

 

Thanks for the heads up on the parking situation!

 

Would love to know if there is a fan meet up in Dallas as well!  I always love meeting fans and making new "line" friends.  :)

I like all of the above ideas.  In Boston for the last tour, a fan club member organized the line.  We got there around 8 am, got numbers and wristbands (with cooperation from the TD Center), and were allowed to leave and re-convene about 4 pm.  I would LOVE for ATT Stadium to do the same.  I plan on getting there early, but would like the opportunity to leave and come back.

BTW, in '09 we were told to line up by some stadium personnel at the wrong gate.  There were about 100 of us that had to march clear to the other side of the stadium to get in the correct line, which had already been going in.  No worries then, because we ended up in the inner circle.  

 

I plan on doing much better homework for this show. I'll be calling AT&T stadium in the near future to see what their plan is.  If anyone gets info, post it here!

I agree jwaldrop.  I loved being able to line up early in the morning, get a number and wristband, and then come back later in the day to line back up again.  That gave us time to go see the band as they came in to the arena!   :)

 

I would hate to line up in the wrong place!  I have a friend that has emailed AT&T stadium, but, she hasn't heard back yet.  Once I get any info, I'll for sure post here!  Would love to see what other people find out or if anyone has any plans to start the line.  We are flying in Thursday afternoon and heading straight to the stadium from the airport to check things out!

Got an email back from AT&T Stadium:

Q: What will the GA procedure be for the U2 concert?

A: "We will allow people to get a number in line starting at 6:00 am the morning of the concert at the end of our West Plaza.  People can come and line up at 2:00 pm and their number in line will be held until 4:30 pm.  The stadium opens at 5:00 pm"

Q: Where will the GA line begin?

A: "The end of our West Plaza along North Collins"

I am so pumped that we can leave and re-convene.  See y'all at 6 am!

Looking forward to meeting everyone!  See you in the line!
