  1. The only paid meet & greet that we have done was for Stonesour, it was not expensive & they were all very cool guys especially Corey Taylor. Would I pay to meet U2? I suspect that if they did start offering it as part of VIP packages that the cost would be so prohibitive that I would probably not do it. I've been very lucky to have met Bono & The Edge, Bono was very rushed & a bit chaotic outside The Clarence a couple of days after a show at Croke Park on the Vertigo tour, he looked like he was still drunk from the night before & I had to help him into his car but
  2. I ordered the 7 disc vinyl set & had to return it to Amazon as there were issues with some of the discs. ISHFWILF with the gospel choir on the live set had feedback & what sounded like surface noise from the vinyl all the way through it, the rest of that disc was fine. The remix disc just sounded weird which I assumed was what the songs were supposed to sound like, it was only when I got the replacement from Amazon that I realised how the songs were meant to sound. One Tree Hill stuck & jumped at various point through the song. I'd heard that some people didn't
  3. Feel free to drop me a PM anytime, we live in Ascot (Not a million miles from Windsor) & will be taking the train both days. Would not consider any other option for getting to Twickenham.
  4. I opted for the 7 disc vinyl box set. It arrived on Friday, I had prepared myself to be disappointed but it's a thing of beauty, it really is. I've only listened to the live album so far, the remixes are on the menu for tonight. Did I need another version of an album that I already have on vinyl bought on it's original release date, normal CD & the CD box set from a few years ago? Of course I don't, none of us do but it's U2 & I'm a sucker for a box set. I ordered it from Amazon UK & everything that was supposed to be in the box was there, including the dow
  5. When I was queuing to pick up my wristband at Glasgow on the second night on the I & E tour, the guy before me in the queue won. As happy as I was for him & his wife, I was absolutely gutted that I'd missed out by one person.
  6. Springsteen played Wembley last year & all seating was reserved so that's not the reason. Possibly something to do with the sound at Wembley being absolutely appalling or possibly they couldn't get the stadium for the dates that they wanted. I prefer Twickenham, it's a much better venue for gigs IMHO, having seen U2, The Police & Iron Maiden there in the past.
  7. Yes, they checked the tickets but as they didn't hand out the wristbands until later in the day it wasn't an issue for people. As I said, there is absolutely no guarantee that they will do what they did for the Vertigo gigs, so please don't base your plans on this, my advice would be to keep an eye on the official Twickenham web site for info. As for there being a pit or not, unless someone can get into the stadium & take a photo the day before we will not know until the day of the gig.
  8. The last time they played at Twickenham (Vertigo) we turned up between 7:30 - 8:00 for the Saturday gig & joined a fairly small group of people (200 - 250). At 9am the security guards blocked us in & told everyone that nobody else would be allowed to join the queue that we were in & also that we were guaranteed entry to the pit / inner circle. Anyone else who showed up early was made to queue in another area separate to where we where. They posted security guards at the front & end of the queue & you checked in & out with them when going to the toilet &am
  9. No pit / inner circle at the gigs in the States so far. I seem to remember seeing a seat plan for Dublin which showed a pit but that was back when the tickets went onsale.
  10. Tell him not to even think about trying to drive to Twickenham, he won't get close to the stadium & all of the roads leading to it will be closed on both days. Tell him to get a taxi to Windsor & get the train from Windsor & Eton Riverside station, it will take about 20 - 30 minutes to get to Twickenham. Coming back he will also be able to bypass the huge queue of people getting trains into London because he'll be getting a train in the opposite direction. PM me if you have any specific questions.
  11. I would echo what an earlier person said, don't even think about using taxis or Uber, get the train from Waterloo out to Twickenham, the stadium is about a 10 minute walk away. On the way back if you are out with the first batch of people & get to the station quickly & there is no queue then get in line & wait, if not & the queue is enormous, head for the platform with trains going away from London, get the first train & then get off at the next station, cross over to the platform with trains heading back into London & grab the first train. I live to the West
  12. I feel your pain, the presale process has been very painful this time round particularly if you were trying to get Red Zone tickets. Last week was a shambles for Twickenham, I spent the best part of an hour & ended up going for seats in the end, my mate had more luck this morning & managed to get 3 RZ for the second Twickenham show but it looks like that was down to luck based on what people are reporting on here. This time last week I was ready to walk away, I'd had enough of the difficulties that we seem to go through each & every tour at presale time, I'm still not happy about
  13. My friend got 3 RZ for Twickenham on the Sunday, which makes up for last weeks shambles. Saying that I feel for the people who didn't get, it really should not be this difficult in a fan club presale, at some point people are going to say enough is enough. We have ended up with seats for Saturday & RZ for Sunday, happy days.
  14. I would be very surprised, other than a nice souvenir ticket you didn't get anything on the I & E tour.
  15. Completely agree with you. It's the same every tour when it comes to Pre Sale time, there is some kind of screw up, long term fans get shafted & nothing get's done to rectify the situation. Yesterday's Twickenham pre sale was a fiasco with regards to the RZ tickets, as of the day before people were pointing out that there was not a separate link for them like there was for Dublin & yet nothing was done about it. I spent the best part of an hour from 9am trying to figure out what was going on before I managed to get a link that worked & by that time they had gone, when I then tri
