Wooop!! @ 02:31 pm

I'm currently feelin: chipper chipper
I'm currently hearin: U2 - HTDAB

Okay - my parents landed me with the biggest of surprises yesterday - they got me a ticket to see U2 at Twickenham stadium on the 19th June!!

It's in the North Stand (me thinks - something like 199?!!) and it's a reserved seat :D

So what I am asking is...from a newbie not just to U2 concerts but to concerts in general - what are the do's and don'ts???

thanks :D

Hey! That's one HELL of a surprise - congrats!
I'll be going to my first U2 concert on 21st, so i'll leave someone more knowledgeable to tell you what's what!
As much as i've been to concerts, U2 ones seem to be a whole different world and i'm hoping to find out as much as i can about what to do etc beforehand too, eeek!
Congrats again :D Your parents rock, heehee - and oh yeah, you should let ME know how yours goes since it's before ;) lol

Do's & Don'ts

Don't take too much into the venue ....
They won't allow you to carry food or drink in and will "confiscate it at the gate so just take enough for the queue.
Bags will be searched.
usually small cameras will be allowed in but not video cameras or "slr" style digitals
Do get there early to take in the atmosphere of the queues and the support bands, you've had a lot of money spent on the ticket so make the most of it.
Do allow time to get out of the venue, onto trains or out of carparks. Once was sat in a car park for over 2 hours waiting for to get out of the gates!

And I will let you know how it went caz_smash, ofcourse thats if I don't get crushed before, during or after the concert *wimper*
