  1. No card swipe this morning for wristbands. They stated that the full party is required, but no one asked "How many in your party?" before issuing wristbands. They will swipe CCs this afternoon prior to entry.
  2. TM parking does not allow in&out, correct? Just single use? So I'll need to find a place nearby to park for check in & hope it doesn't take too long so that my car gets towed, I guess? Anyone got better ideas?
  3. What is everyone planning to do about parking? I doubt local businesses will allow parking, even those that open their lots after typical business hours for events (like concerts & Rangers games). So -- carpooling? Shared Uber from a common drop location? Suggestions? After seeing them twice GA-style on the 360° Tour, I'm bringing my teenage son for this one. It will be his first big-time rock show, so we're both super excited & want to get close to the rail or the walkway. We were planing on showing up around noon, but sounds like earlier is better, at least to get line-position numbers? Also interested in a fan meetup, if that materializes. Will keep an eye on the message boards. Just over 1 week away --- can't wait!!!!
  4. I have an extra GA ticket that I'm looking to sell (or at least recoup some costs on) if u change your mind.
  5. Don't let the bastards grind you down. If you get anywhere near Texas in 2011 -- I will be there. Thanks for the joy you've brought to my life (& all of ours) &with your music. Take care of yourself we'll see you soon.
  6. I can't say whether this is the worst U2 tour ever, having missed PopMart & ATYCLB tours (plus anything pre-Joshua Tree), but I saw them on Achtung, ZooTV, Vertigo & now the 360° tours. Each stands alone on its own merits. Achtung was the first time I ever saw the band (missing the Joshua Tree tour stop in Fort Worth in 1987 is still one of my life's greatest regrets), so it would have had to been disasterous to be disappointing -- needless to say, it was quite the opposite. I saw the ZooTV tour in the Astrodome in Houston - completely over-the-top spectacle by the greatest band in the world - pure greatness. A long time & a couple of tours passed until Vertigo in 2005. That is my favorite to-date. The set list, energy, and crowd interaction was great! This year, however, I was inside "the circle" for the first time. Bono, Edge, & Adam crossed the bridge where I was standing quite a few times. Being just a few feet away from those guys -- I must say I was star-struck -- and that alone made it worth the price of admission (plus the 6 hours of driving and arriving home at 3 a.m. on a Monday then going to work 3 hours later. I was still jacked up!). And now it's just a matter of months until the Denver show -- I can't wait! I do hope they change up the set list a little bit -- maybe not quite so heavy on the NLOTH material. I like the new record, but they could swap 2 or 3 songs for some older stuff (Gloria, Bullet the Blue Sky, Bad, Desire, 40), or even some of the lesser-heard material (Lemon, Numb, Discotheque, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses). Either way, I'm there. And the next tour. And the one after that. And the one after that...
  7. Bono crossing the bridge on stage right during City of Blinding Lights. Norman, OK
