Meadowlands Clogged

Editor note from Dre: We saw this story had to laugh a bit. First main stream media once again looking for drama, any kind of drama, how can we create it, find it, make it happen. Give us a break if your going to a sold out concert you can expect to wait a bit for a train. Hell do you not remember he Madoma Concert, Prince Concert or the Police Concert at the square ( New Yorkers know the place) Its just common expectations. So why focus on it. So how was the show ? Did you get what you came for ? 

After U2 concert, Meadowlands train service clogged for hours, fans say

EAST RUTHERFORD — Forty minutes into his wait for a train to take him to the sold-out U2 concert at Giants Stadium on Wednesday night, Steve Brauntuch still hadn’t found what he was looking for.

The Manhattan resident and Tenafly native hoped to hop on a  train at NJ Transit’s Secaucus station at 7:30 p.m. to catch the Irish supergroup when it hit the stage at 9.

What he found next was chaos.

Hundreds of people were pressed together like cattle as they jostled for position to buy tickets or board trains.

“There was no instruction, there was no announcement, there was no security,” said Brauntuch, a veteran concert-goer of Giants Stadium shows. “It was a mess.”

He said he wasn’t able get the next train until 8:15.
