Default Less than a week until Wrigley!

Who all is going? I'll be at the Indy show too, but have been looking forward to Wrigley for months.

Long time lurker here - have been a member for a while, but do not post a whole lot. My wife and I will be at the Sunday show and we have been wondering how early we should get there to get as close to the front as possible. We don't go to many stadium shows and normally have seats when we do, but this was on our bucket list.

This will be my first time at Wrigley (kids were too little last time), but I'm planning to be there pretty early. I read somewhere that noon is too late for rail there.

Cool. Thanks for the info. I think that is around when we had planned to get there - may need to re-evaluate our arrival time.

Your stamina is very impressive.

I'm sure to get on the rail you have to do it, but last time Wrigley GA was piece of cake, view was amazing no matter where you were.

Now our friends from Indy are coming for tonight's show

This weekend in Chicago was amazing. Made a lot of new Foo friends, spent 29 hrs waiting in line, and got on the rail both days. I had a blast. Tonight's show was awesome, and I ended up with a pick. They played La Dee Da too :-) I'm kind of sad to go back to the real world tomorrow. 73 days until the Kansas City show.

I hope everyone else had an awesome time in Chicago too.

9 shows in a year for you - you rock! And up front for most plus the killer show at the Metro. Got to meet Taylor... one day I want to grow up to be like you.

This has been an amazing year. I never dreamed I'd be able to see my favorite band that many times in a year. Metro was by far my favorite show ever.

I came home to a big mess. We'd been talking about making our basement a walk out, and my husband rented a backhoe and dug it out while I was gone this weekend. In exchange for not killing or divorcing him, he's gonna watch kids while I go to Detroit, Milwaukee and St. Paul shows :-) Hopefully, you and your son will be able to make it to St. Louis or Detroit too.

People 2 rows back from me ended up with them. A bunch of people fell on each other trying to get them. I think they were still in one piece by the time they landed lol

He got all the excavating done. Just posted pics on my insta. Definitely do pit. I was there early both days, but had a blast in the line. The day we went at 1 a.m., there were people on their way back from CVS offering us beer and Jameson all night. At 3 a.m., some wasted, Australian, cowboys entertained us.
