Security Tight For U2 Concert At FirstEnergy Stadium


(Cleveland) - Tens of thousands of fans of the band U2 started lining up outside FirstEnergy Stadium Friday morning for Saturday night's stop of U2's Joshua Tree Tour.  Fans of U2 are being warned that security at FirstEnergy Stadium will be very strict, and fans need extra time to pass through security.

Parking lots around the stadium open Saturday at noon.  Gates will open at 5:00 p.m. Saturday.  Large bags such as backpacks, oversize tote bags, and large purses will not be allowed.  Also not allowed in the stadium are balloons, Frisbees, ice chests, umbrellas, and firearms.  The prohibited items list is the same one used for Browns games.  Purses or totes must be small and clear.

Security procedures will be very similar to those used for Browns games.

Here's important information regarding tickets:

  • Floor Access: Access to the floor requires a ticket for the GA floor. FirstEnergy Stadium wristbands to reserve your spot in line will be distributed starting at 8:00am on Saturday, July 1. Each person issued a FirstEnergy Stadium wristband must return to the CREE Gate between 2pm and 4pm to begin lining up for entry in order of your wristband number. All ticket holders must be together in line before 4pm or the entire group will lose their place in line.
  • Paperless Tickets (Credit Card Entry): Guests with paperless tickets must have the credit card they used to purchase their tickets along with a form of ID matching the name on the credit card. All ticket holders must be together to enter as tickets cannot be transferred.
    • If the credit card has expired or if you no longer have the credit card used to purchase the tickets, please call Ticketmaster at 1-800-653-8000 prior to arrival at the venue.
    • All of your party attending the concert together must be present and enter at the same time
  • Re-Entry Policy: Fans will not be permitted to leave the stadium and return on the same ticket except in the case of a medical emergency. Fans needing to exit and return to the stadium must communicate with the Gate Supervisor at any of the main gates prior to exiting the stadium.
  • Will Call: Will Call is located at the Browns Ticket Office located on the south (city) side of FirstEnergy Stadium. Picture I.D. is required to claim tickets. Tickets will only be released to the person whose name appears on the envelope.
