I'm not trying to blame anyone, it says no where in my reply about blaming anyone, I am only stating the facts and the fact is that when you decide to attend a show you do so at your own risk, you are the one who decides to make that long trip, the band does not decide this for you. Touring is a business and U2 management made a business decission. They are not going to pay for your change of flight fee's or your hotel reservation it just doesn't work that way. I am sure that the band will do something at the September 23rd show for the fans. so please stop the "they made a mistake, now give me something" attitude.
Especially since technically it should just be folks in NY going.
Just folks in NY, huh? Odd considering the stadium is actually in New Jersey. People are not seeming to understand this little fact about Giants Stadium. If you are travelling to Giants Stadium... you are not going to be in NY... you are going to be in East Rutherford, NJ. Btw... I really hope those who have hotel accommodations didn't get them in NYC. It's only 12 miles from NYC.......
Yes, but 12 miles can possibly be about and hour an a half in traffic in this part of the world. I'm not sure where you are. Sometimes, there can be a half hour wait or more at the tunnels. We are about 90 miles from the stadium and it will probably take us 2/3 hrs to get there at least, with all the traffic up near the stadium.I'm sure taking public transportaiton from NYC, is a better option.
Just leave plenty of time where ever you are coming from, as traffic near the stadium and in this part of the world in general, is insane.
no i live 350 miles away, but will probably be stating on the island the night before and driving in wednesday afternoon. definitely a good point regarding the traffic. Public trnasportation is definitely the way to go if you are staying in a hotel. unfortunately the trains don't go there.....at least not that i'm aware.
I think down in the fan gathering section, some fans who are from the New York area, have posted some good travel info regarding trains that go to the stadiumor near it.
