Bracing for the U2 Concert
Rumor has it that there is some sort of Irish music group coming to Scott Stadium next week.
Not sure how Riverdance will sell out a 60,000-seat stadium, but …
OK, OK, just kidding. U2 is headed for Charlottesville for a big show on Thursday. In fact, they’re already setting up a stage that apparently requires some 102 tractor-trailer loads of stuff be hauled in.
Such a large undertaking requires a lot of accommodations, particularly on a weekday. The U.Va. Department of Parking and Transportation has the lowdown on the parking situation, road closures and bus schedules.
(A word to the wise: I would avoid the area around JPA and West Main like the plague before and after the show.)
