IT'S TODAY!

Are people queuing to get in to the stadium already? I was planning on heading over to the pop-up around 2pm and then the stadium at 4pm. Peak/worst times?

Are you going with standing tickets? Iím interested to know what view is like if you turn up later in the day. Please let me know what your experience is like, if you are standing tickets.

I do have standing tickets and I always aim to get as close to the front as I can (I'm short so trying to see the stage is always a challenge at any standing gig!). Will update on the status of the queue as it looks like it's going to be heaving by 4pm.

Thank you. Good luck, hope you get a good view! It felt like these gigs were a long time away but all of a sudden, they are here!

Thanks! Will check back here for queue updates if I'm running late.

Edit: just checked my ticket and it says to go in via Bridge 1, turnstile J. I think this will be the busiest bridge as it runs from Westfield :/

Any views on what time merch stands open, and where they are (i.e. inside or outside the gates)?

I admire those queuing already. My front row days are long gone (last being the holy shits show at Brighton).

Severe delays on the Central Line. This does not fill me with joy as I'm anxious enough about leaving work at 2pm

Where are you travelling from? It might sort itself out by then. You can always jump on the Jubilee or overground lines to Stratford (or the DLR if youíre in East London).

St Pauls... Its 13 mins from here on the Central Line. Much longer from anywhere else. I'm consious I'm leaving late and want a good spot down the front!

Leaving at 2. Well... Maybe 1.45. I'm meant to leave at 3 but its quiet and I'm not exactly productive anyway.

I missed meeting Dave yesterday, I can't cope with anymore disappointment of not getting in the front section!

You could walk to Bank and get the DLR from there. Probably more reliable if the Central line delays persist

Nah, I was already quite brown and I dont think people pay that much attention!

Have been told my my colleague that I should make sure I leave in enough time to get there. I shouldn't leave much before 2 really but I'll see.

Will calculate the best route at 1.30... I can also get to Liverpool Street and get an overground train. Not sure which is quicker, DLR, Jubilee line or overground. Neither the overground or the jubillee line are near here whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy today!!!!!!!!!!!!!
