Could Vancouver’s U2 fans be some of the most dedicated in the world?
It sure seems so.
Hundreds of fans with floor seat tickets have been braving the rain and lining up from as early as 5 am to make sure they secure their spots for tonight’s sold out show.
Patty Milliken, receptionist at BC Place, told Daily Hive doors for the concert will open at 5:30 pm, show openers Mumford & Sons will be on stage at 7:30 to 8:30 pm, and U2 is set to perform at 9 pm.
U2 has been in town for the last several days, putting on some pretty loud rehearsals at BC Place ahead of their show.
Guess they want to give their fans the very best.
@u2 fans sure like to start the queue early so we joined in yesterday. @mumfordandsons we’re ready in Vancouver and we brought the Wings. Smash it Lads! good thing our feet dressed for Glastonbury #queuingfortheopener #TheJoshuaTree2017 #flagsforthelads #MumfordMay #thenorthremembers #mumfordandsons
