    Help!: U2 concert in Milan

    Buenos tardes (or buenos dias to all you folks back in the States) from Valencia, Spain! I've been studying here for a month already, hence me disappearing from the boards. I need some international help...

    Long story short: I've been going out with a gorgeous Italian woman. She's going back home to Bologna for a U2 concert in Milan on the night of Tuesday, July 7. She has one extra ticket that she was going to sell but said I can have it. She is going back on Monday morning, but I can't do that. My only option is to leave Tuesday after class, which means I'm getting into town just a few hours before the concert. Italian transport is frequently delayed, so I might have even less time than that.

    My problem is how to actually get the ticket once I'm there, since it's physically at her house in Bologna. There is apparently no such thing as a will-call window over here, and she can't leave the stadium once she goes inside. Does anyone have a trustworthy friend in Milan (or a friend going to the concert) who could hold a ticket for me outside the stadium? I know this is a long shot, but I need to make this work- free U2 ticket and then a night out in a beautiful Italian city with a beautiful Italian woman? How can I possibly let this slip by? Help a poor guy out!

    If anybody has ANY suggestions for how to safely get the ticket to me(especially you Europeans on here), PLEASE let me know asap. I'm not buying tickets unless I know I can get into the concert, and ticket prices will be going up in the next 12-14 hours. Thanks a million!

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    But seriously, that is a really long shot, she doesn't have any friends in the area that might be able to help you out?

    Leave earlier and have her wait outside. I don't think you can expect someone you don't even know to wait outside when your girlfriend won't.

    This thread is worthless without pictures.

    He could always use the emergency thing to take the test earlier in the day, to get out earlier.

    Exactly, You will remember the night in 20 years; you won't even remeber what class it was let alone what the content was.

    That's what I was thinking. If you're studying abroad I would think class is hardly the point.
