    Bono and the guys are having their first gig of the 360 Tour here at the Estadio Unico de La Plata.

    If so- have fun! I saw a Radiohead concert in B.A. and it was really really fantastic- great crowd and great ambience.

    Have a great time! If so inclined- you may want to checkout the bar at the Faena afterwards- it seems a lot of bands do their after-concert wrap ups there....

    Sounds like a nice plan... although its a non possibility for us. My wife is already freaking out that we are leaving our 20 month old girl and 3.5 year old boy "alone" with my mother and my aunt.... so we will zip back to town as soon as Bono finishes his last Encore.

    Yeah... these guys are tooo big to not have ever seen them live. I guess they will continue to tour for some time still, or...?

    Glad to hear it was amazing! Sounds like you had a great time!
    My son Michael and his friends were there. Guess you missed them. :)

    Their plans from an email sent to me:
    - I have rented a (probably too grand) apartment in Palermo, near Plaza Italia and lots of transportation connections.
    - planning on a day trip to Tigre
    - joining up with the hopefully off-beat free tour guy (who promises to teach us how to use the buses)
    - doing an in-city wine tasting (Anuva) -- I've re-directed him to Terroir :)
    - people seem to like the opera house tour
    - going to see U2 at the new stadium (way too much money, but one friend insisted)
    - planning on eating a lot of steak and drinking a lot of Malbec
    - going to Iguazu and staying at the Sheraton per your recommendation (and seemingly the entire FlyerTalk forum).

    I so wish I could have gone. SPG even had a Moments auction with a backstage tour. <cry>.
    Will have to wait for Miami in June.

    Yes... it would seem I didnt hear from them. Your son is not a pilot based out of Hong Kong, or....?
