A few tour questions, hopefully someone can help.

Anyone either camping out or just getting to the stadium obscenely early for the Nov 10 Syd show?

Anyone have any idea where the stage is going to be in relation to the gates? For example is it at the G-H end or the O-P end? [Edit: after consulting ticketek, whereis and the telstra stadium site I am fairly confident the stage is at the south end, being the O-P end. Which is not so great for me, I have F gate tickets - the north end - *sigh*]

For previous dates - have they been barricading sections off in the GA area (splitting people into smaller sections with walkways between) or just letting everyone flow all over the GA area as they will?

All of that will determine what obscene time I show up to the stadium!!

(Im a bit antsy about this GA thing. My last U2 concert experience I was stuck in the nosebleeds and since Im about 5' tall it would be worse to be stuck at the back of the GA area. I wouldnt even get the "ant" view I had in 98!)

I'm showing up at an obscene time :D. I'm going to the 3rd Sydney show and getting there on the night of the 11th. I'm not taking any chances, I know what its like being stuck behind people when you're no taller than a fecking leprechaun. :)

You might need to ring the actual stadium, didn't they change the security and safety rules since that girl died at the Big Day Out a couple of years back? It's probably different with each place it goes.

Thanks for the links - I had actually read through all that but you did give me the idea to use the compass indicator on the seating map...so Ive got an answer, I think :D

Hmm you might be right. I havent had a GA ticket for anything since before that incident, I didnt even think about that.

Good luck! I'm actually in the stands for both 11th and 13th - the friend I am going with isn't very tall, I'm not much taller and we've been caught more times than we care to mention behind André the Giant. Honestly, there seems to be a huge number of gigantic men who are concertgoers - why is that? Frustrating as hell. We're not terribly far forward for either gig, but we wanted to be able to see. Plus, I don't handle heat very well (anyone remember Popmart in Sydney? That day was, what, high forties? That's about a million in Fareinheit) and the last thing I want to do is collapse in the November heat before the show even starts.

Anyway - the show's gonna be awesome no matter where any of us end up. Yay!

Ive only done the GA thing in much smaller venues - I think the Horden is the biggest!! eep. I probably shouldnt have picked U2 for my stadium ga debut...

Hopefully they dont clamp things down too much until there are a decent amount of people in the stadium - by which time I can crawl under the giants legs to get nearer the front ;D

Lots and lots of sunscreen. Olympic Park only has sticks buried in dirt pretending to be trees. And alot of water.
