EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Some people sat in gridlock for hours Wednesday night when a popular concert and a state fair where held in the same place at the same time.
CBS2’s Dave Carlin spoke with organizers in East Rutherford, New Jersey who said to avoid that happening again Thursday night, get there early.
Fans of U2, Michelle and Mike Hall said they’re glad they’re seeing the band’s second show at MetLife Stadium.
“We haven’t seen them in a couple of years, and I’m so excited because I can hear the sound check going on right now,” Michelle said. “We’re thrilled.”
Their friends who were at the show Wednesday night were able to warn the couple to get to MetLife early, so they did.
“We purposely left Seaside at 2-o-clock, so that we could be here in time,” Mike said.
They also saw warnings on social media.
One tweet read, “Trying to get into U2 concert at MetLife. What idiot schedules a concert the same day as the state fair. We are never getting there in time.”
