It’s a nightmare scenario for any severe music fan. You plunked down your hard-earned cash on live performance tickets — and if it’s a much bigger act, most likely a fairly large chunk of cash — you’ve waited for weeks and months for the present to reach, after which, simply as you strategy the venue on the given evening, a visitors jam of monster proportions stops you in your tracks. You’ll be able to see the venue. It’s proper there! And but, you possibly can’t break via the road of vehicles to make it into the parking zone. The evening goes on, the band hits the stage and also you aren’t there.
Such was the case for a whole bunch of U2 followers caught of their vehicles outdoors of the LA Discussion board final evening, hoping to catch the Irish rocker’s triumphant return to the LA space after their much-heralded Joshua Tree, stadium tour final yr. Whereas there hasn’t been any phrase from metropolis officers why visitors seemed to be particularly unhealthy final evening — it’s by no means nice — for these caught within the morass, it was sheer torture watching the clock tick down, understanding they had been lacking out on seeing the band. As individuals do within the 21st century, many took to Twitter to vent their frustration.
Let’s hope issues run a bit of smoother for U2’s present on the Discussion board tonight.
