Priscilla Pope: July 2011 Archives


From Vice President Kathleen O'Brien:
"The University of Minnesota will welcome the U2 360 Tour to TCF Bank Stadium on Saturday, July 23. If you are among the more than 60,000 fans expected for the first major concert in TCF Bank Stadium, be sure to visit the U2 information webpage for complete details on parking, stadium policies and other event news.

The 60,000 fans expected will be the largest crowd ever for an event at TCF Bank Stadium. In addition, a sizable number of non-ticket holders are expected to come to campus and enjoy the concert atmosphere. The campus will be full of activity and road construction will make travel difficult. If you are coming to the concert, or if your work or class schedule require you to be on campus on Saturday, be sure to allow extra travel time. Employees and students with current parking contracts will be able to use their designated parking contract location, but reciprocity privileges will not be allowed.

Load-in and set-up for the concert is an enormous undertaking. More than 100 semi-trailers have begun delivery of the lights, sound system, field covering and staging needed to produce the show. The stadium area is already congested with trucks associated to the many construction projects on campus, so please use extra caution this week as you walk, bicycle or drive around campus especially when near the stadium."

The event starts at 7 p.m. but expect crowds to develop hours before.
