North Carolina Fans Disappointed
Days after the show disappointed U2 fans were still horror-struck by traffic so snarled that dozens abandoned their cars on Wade Avenue(N.C), ducked behind trees to use the bathroom and wept openly as the music played without them.
The concert Saturday night at Carter-Finley Stadium is being ranked among the worst traffic jams in Raleigh history, and concert-goers trapped in cars for four hours coming and going have piled on blogs to complain about shoddy planning.
Brad King of Winston-Salem never even parked. He spent three-plus hours driving from his parents’ house in Durham, watching the bathroom-goers and the crying fans stuck outside, before he spotted the stadium several songs into U2’s set and decided to eat his pair of $50 tickets.
“We could clearly hear the music through the sunroof,” he said. “I thought, ‘Who’s to say we don’t spend five hours getting out of here?’ I don’t want to get home at 5 in the morning. So we turned around.”
