Souvenirs? @ 06:29 pm

onebadkite:
I'm currently feelin: curious curious

I have GA tix to the show in Tampa on 11/16. I've never been to a concert of this scale. Do the souvenir stands stay open AFTER the show? 'Cause I'd love to scoop up a bunch of memorabilia, but of course don't wanna lug it about the Ice Palace, especially if I land in the Elipse. Thanks for your help. :-D

Yes, they are open after the show.  Security started pushing us out of the arena about half an hour after all was said and done in Arizona, but there really wasn't anyone left buying things at that time.  There are also souvenir stands outside if you wanted to buy stuff before the show, take it back to your car, and then stand in line.

Brilliant. Thanks for the info! I'll make my friend stand in line while I make trips carrying gobs of U2ness back and forth to the vehicle. ;-)

Hello fellow U2Florida fan!

With as many people that are going to be there (especially GA) I don't blame you at all. I'll probably do the same. I'll only bring in my camera ;)

Silly question: St Pete Times Forum & Ice Palace. Same thing? I live in Orlando, we only have the TD Waterhouse so I have no clue..

Hey there! *waves across the state* I plan on bringing myself and the cell phone, of course. Maybe I'll shove an ID in my pocket in case I get trampled and someone needs to identify the body.

Yes, the St. Pete Times Forum and the Ice Palace are the same thing, lol. It used to be known as the Ice Palace. But then the St. Petersburg paper bought it. Weird because... big special secret here - it's in Tampa! Not St. Pete. It's kinda irksome to those of us in Hillsborough county, but eh, it's business.
I just went to a friend's graduation there, and thought it would be bigger, frankly. :-X

And pssst... can I steal your icon? Whom should I credit?

Feel free to steal! Make sure to credit elevationist & ebongray 'cause that's who I got it from :)

I thought they were one in the same. I wondered what the heck was going on with that?!? For some reason I was thinking this place would be somewhere on the other side of the CC Causeway or some shiz!? LOL That's kind of funny.. but silly.

The stands stay open after the show.

However...

If you're wanting to get a load of merch, some of the stuff you want or certain sizes may be sold out after the show. If you are driving or have a friend who has a car, you can buy your gear before the show (in CA, the stand opened around 3 or 4) and then leave it in the car while you're inside having fun.

We got kicked out literally right when the show ended in Boston last night. I'd go for it beforehand, because even when I went right when we got in, they were sold out of a lot of common sizes. =/
