This is a very accurate description of my experience. Very thorough! From inescapable sun in Phoenix to snow in Montreal (along with loads of line skippers) to meeting awesome fans all over the world in Dublin. In my opinion, it is ALWAYS worth it to line up for GA (especially if you follow this guide). I have converted people to becoming die hard U2 fans by experiencing the concert this way. I've been in and out of the pit (remember the exhilaration of the computer screen when it flashed "vertigo" 3 times?). I've been at the end of the catwalk (Pop Mart). Any place on the floor is incredible.
