Children in Red Zone/Lining up Time

For anyone who has been in Red Zone, what is your opinion on getting close to the rail with children?  Obviously the density in the Red Zone isn't nearly like it is in GA but just wondering how people are close to the rail and if they are pushy/rude.  Don't want my kids to experience any of that and if that's the case we will probably just stick towards the back of the crowd.  Also, what is the timing to get up against the rail?  How early would we have to line up?

RED zone has turned into the GA I'm afraid. To get rail, go early the day of the show. I've heard 9 or 10 am to get rail. That said, I showed up at the stadium at 4pm (I had to work) and stood right behind the people on the rail.

People can be rude. One couple with a kid tried to push their way into the rail. Nobody was having it. Most are nice. I had some nice conversation with people around me. Make friends with the people around you & you can watch out for each other,

Its a good view from anywhere inside. GA gets the better view. The band play to them. You still get a good view of the band & Adam & Edge walk around to all sides during the songs. The band spends a decent amount of time on the B stage & that's where you see them up close & the walkway too. Keep in mind I'm short & my view of Bono was minimal. I think he walked around but I only caught random glimpses. I was stuck sort of behind a tall guy who obstucted some of my view when they were on the B stage but still managed to see quite a bit. It's easier to see them all on the main stage. The stage is tall so the entire stadium can see them on the main stage.

The RED zone isn't like previous tours. You do get a nice view but the GA is better & not as much of a wait as the GA & the freedom to move into the GA if you want. I'd suggest viewing the opening act. If you're happy with your spot, stay. Move if you're not.

Thanks Shannon that was what I was afraid of.  No way we will be going in that early so we will just plan on hanging towards the back and enjoying the show without dealing with the rudeness.  I think hanging back a bit will be better anyway for viewing especially for them.

I would not take my kid to GA or even RZ. Yesterday I was in RZ in Seattle. I'm tall enough - 5.74. I was not far from the stage, probably in 6-7 row. For me it was ok if no one taller in front of me. And also some people were smoking and sometimes not just tobacco(( I went to RZ alone. Will take my kid to the SF show on Wed. We have lower seats.

I took my boy to IE tour GA Chicago Nights 3 & 4 and had the greatest experience. We paid our dues waiting in line and everyone was so kind and loving of me and my boy! I'm hoping being outside it's still the same. 

Yes, my son yelled at Bono to give a letter to Mr. Larry. Yes, we know he go the letter because mid show he stopped and gave my son the sticks he used on the E Stage. Also, Bono sketched on his RS magazine, and Larry waved, smiled at us the several times each night!

That happens at any concert.  Luckily so far they don't know what it smells like :) But if they asked I would tell them.

And I certainly wouldn't have them anywhere near someone who was doing that.

Again we will hang towards the back where they can see fine.  Thanks for the feedback!
