  1. I will now not receive it until the 20th December and the customer service has been appalling. Could U2 really not handle a lot of this themselves, as in days of yore?
  2. Mine hasn't arrived and a customer service agent said I'd get it on the 20th December Not great...
  3. Got on the front row! But more importantly got to sing you’re the best thing with my new fiancée and have a massive dance with the biggest band in the world, in the greatest city in the world. Thanks so much U2 and the site! Really needed that “great washing thing” that is a U2 gig this week!
  4. This is actually pete, right? sorry Alec - getting my ‘the fly’s confused!
  5. Pete! Guess what? Me and heather got engaged!
  6. I got super fan tickets! Amaze! In shock, to be honest
  7. There's a small car park with 260 seats but the issue is that the whole ground gets closed off for event days by police etc. I think it's likely security will be very, very tight given the terror threat and attack last night. Shuttle buses run from Richmond station if that helps. The stadium site is actually pretty accurate on this. I live in Kew so am gonna walk it basically.
  8. As a millenial, I feel this is an affliction that curses us all. It's not just gigs. How can you be moved by something if you're constantly trying to record it? It gets ridiculous, especially with engagements and things that are supposed to be sacred live events. If my girlfriend proposed to me and brought a film crew, not only would I say no, but some expensive equipment would get damaged. Few things on this earth beat being in the moment when 'streets' opens. Why you'd want to experience that behind a screen is beyond me.
  9. Quite right, too. God save the Queen. LOL - I am now - only, in a U2 themed twist, instead of invading countries, it's about getting them to collectively sign up to an Amnesty petition. More seriously - I think 9/10's sensible. I love U2, but there's a trade-off between being at the front and being knackered
  10. I'm both a millenial, and mentally middle aged, and I much prefer the latter!
  11. I'm gonna head there for around that time, but I live three miles from Twickenham, it's my birthday and my mates will be there with beers (not too many, I'm not an idiot) and chairs and maybe disposable board games so I'm a bit weird. I heard from someone at Seattle they got there for 4pm and got a good spot just a couple of rows in front of Edge, but I'm a bit paranoid. My guess would be it's a popular gig, so I think around noon would be a safe bet - go early if you're uber keen. What I wouldn't do is panic based on the US shows - it always seems tense outside the stadium, but once you're in, there's always quite a lot more space towards the front then you think. I'll probably rock up around 9/10, but I'm a little weird. My mates will probably detest me by the end of the day. See you then maybe! And if you do go early - Fry up beforehand.
  12. This is so boring. I'm actually turning 29 on the day of the gig, and this is the sort of forum post you make in your late twenties versus your early twenties. My mate's coming down from up North, near Preston, and Virgin Trains has tickets listed for £90. NINETY. Searched for Preston - Crewe and Crewe - London and broke up the journey, and saved 40 quid, with a first class return journey. Absolute bargain. Crewe - London was NINE POUNDS. (£9) Again, news of songs of experience's release date it ain't, but for those flocking to the gig from the North, well worth considering. Be sure to use private browsing mode or google incognito so the train companies don't whack up the prices. Not long now! Mike
