Hey, everyone! So like everyone else, I'm excited for the tour. But I'm wondering, how is the floor in terms of pushing & shoving? I've really only ever been to punk shows (though if all works out I'll be seeing Bright Eyes on Feb. 1st), so...

U2 fans generally do not push and shove, however I did deal with a total bitch on the ouside of the heart in Boston the night they went live.. she was horrible.

I've been to some show where floor means most pit..but U2 isnt like that at all. Some people push a little..and people jump up and down, but thats about it. not like you're going to get injured..just some shoves

During Elevation 2001 there was a little pushing and cramming when Bono or any other member of the band would walk by. But it was mostly calm. The line outside was managed by fans, complete with one guy writing numbers on our wrist and another taking down names. No real chaos.

That's good to know. Here's a dumb question maybe you can answer for me - I'm probably going to get a GA ticket for the Seattle show. I'm guessing I'm going to get there pretty early in the day. Can you go in and out of the line to go to the bathroom or to find food? Do you just kind of work it out with the people around you so they'll let you back in your place?

Do people bring food and things to occupy themselves? My guess is you can't bring in a backpack or anything, and I can't imagine having the opportunity to run something back to your car before the doors open.

I'm just trying to figure out if a day's worth of discomfort and annoyance is worth a GA seat. I may end up in a great spot, but if it's going to be a huge pain in the ass, I'll cough up more money for a reserved seat. *g*

I'm going to a Boston show, and I plan on staying overnight the night before so I can get in line early. It all depends on the arena, and the fans there. At my show in particular the Providence Civic Center handed out wrist bands with no particular number; however I heard at some shows that the arena assigned you random numbers in line.

There was a McDonalds about a block over that the fans would frequent for food and bathroom breaks. It basically depends on the people around you in line; I was standing next to a very friendly couple and a group of friends, and they weren't anal about it.

Some fans did bring a tent and chairs, and about an hour before we were let in they did run stuff to their cars.

Once again, it all depends on who is there and what the arena's policies are. But I can't imagine it being different from concert to concert. And that concert was one of the best experience's of my life, so it was worth the ticket cost, driving an hour to Providence, cutting school for the day and waiting six hours in the cold.
