Hello Hello!!

picassoed:
This may seem like a silly question, but I have to ask it:

My friend and I have GA tickets and we were supposed to meet up at the show but she (not a die-hard U2 fan) doesn't want to skip class so she's coming around 7. There's no way I'm standing all the way at the back because of her so I'm going earlier in the day to wait. Anyway, we won't be able to stand together during the actual show and I was just wondering if it's safe for me to be myself.

You're not the only fan going/ Just talk to the people around you and when you need to get something to eat or go to the loo, just ask if they want to look after your bags/stuff/coat/whatever and if they want to keep an eye on your place (tell them you're alone) You can't just stand there all day with an exploding bladder and a churning stomach

i've gone alone before and its never been an issue. you spend a lot of time just standing around so you get to know your neighbors pretty well. Also I'm sure different areas are different but for all the shows I've been to, I can say people are amazingly unpushy on the floor

I went to see them in Cleveland in the last tour, completely by myself. Made friends in the GA line and got scanned into the ellipse, so I pulled them in with me and had a blast. And even if I hadn't, I wouldn't have worried. These are U2 fans you're at the show with. They're there for the same reason you are. Don't sweat it. Have fun.

I know a couple of people (females) who went to several shows alone and it hasn't been a problem. If you're worried about leaving the venue and/or parking lot on your own, just arrange to meet your friend at a busy spot after the show (like by one of the merchandise booths or something like that) so that you can leave together.

Have fun!

The people who stood in line in front and behind me were both very friendly. We bonded almost instantly over our obvious mutual interest. : )

When we got inside the ring there was a girl who was there by herself who asked me to watch her spot while she left for a few minutes and I was able to keep an eye on it with no problem. Hopefully your experience will be similar. Have a great time!

I've been to more shows in my day than I can even remember, and I can tell you that the U2 crowds are some of the nicest, most relaxed (and occasionally goofy) people that I've ever been to a show with. I was in GA for an Elevation show and I think the most violent thing that happened was me stepping on someone's toe cause I was trying to pogo jump along with the Edge. :-)

I've seen small children and very pregnant women in GA. You'll be fine.

You'll be with U2 fans, not serial killers ;)

In all seriousness, I've been to a lot of concerts in my day, five of them U2 shows, and U2 fans have been among the nicest, friendliest people I've ever met - and not to mention that U2 concerts have the least-violent GA sections I've ever been in. You'll be fine.

you know, you're surrounded by thousands of U2 fans, you can't be safer than that. Seriously :-)
Just start talking to the ones around you once you're in the queue, and in GA as well. It's what makes U2 concerts precious, you meet a lot of amazing people. And U2 fans are very friendly people, believe me.

I flew to Barcelona for the opening night on my own - and it was one of the best experiences ever. All safe, all friendly. And I was in GA.
I went through Amsterdam II on my own, and I flew to Dublin on my own. You're never alone because there are U2 fans everywhere, and U2 fans care for each other. You'll see :-) no worries. Have funa dn enjoy the time :-)
