Would they cancel?

Seems like the storms will be in the morning though...

Who cares. After Miana the last Charlie show, I will get soaked to see the Stones and I am sure I am not alone. The rain-soaked shows are some of the best shows.

I don't think they are afraid to get wet. However, I think their definition refers to women and not their live shows.

Depending On You ....

One of thee greats on Hack .....

I agree. One way to look at this in hope that Depending gets up …

… WHO is actually voting? Not the general, curious fan, the fan that’s going because “hey it’s The Stones, I best see them before it’s too late”. Would they KNOW about the vote?

The voters are likely to be the rabid ones, those on the IORR newsgroup, like us for example. And we’re likely , hopefully, in sufficient numbers to sway the vote to Depending… hopefully.

Then again, the vote could be stolen.

Or, is there really a valid vote anyway or is it all for show and irrelevant anyway?

Which train is the best one to take from downtown Manhattan?


For the Coach Bus...

to 42nd Street (Port Authority Bus Terminal)

Take the A train. I have no idea if it's the best one but imagine going to The Rolling Stones show by the A train while listening Take The A Train! Priceless!

Happy show day to all.

For those traveling on the train (New Jersey Transit) from Penn Station NY to Secaucus, then on to Meadowlands, here is the page with the schedule: https://www.njtransit.com/service-advisory/1751954.

This is the way I usually travel to Meadowlands/MetLife, but there was a major service disruption at 5:30 pm last night. NJT resumed westbound service to NJ at about 10:30 last night, but is announcing there may be residual delays today. See the website for alerts.

Anyway, the schedule (original one, not after disruption) notes that service from Secaucus to Meadowlands/MetLife does not begin until 5:34 pm, so you can't get there earlier than 6 if you use this train.

From the website I referenced above:
View Meadowlands Station Rail service schedule for Thursday, May 23, HERE.

Service TO Meadowlands Station FROM Secaucus Junction will begin at 5:34PM. MetLife Stadium doors open at 6PM.
The final Meadowlands Station-bound train will depart FROM Secaucus Junction at 9:10PM.


View Meadowlands Station Rail service schedule for Sunday, May 26, HERE.

Service TO Meadowlands Station FROM Secaucus Junction will begin at 5:31PM. MetLife Stadium doors open at 6PM.
The final Meadowlands Station-bound train will depart FROM Secaucus Junction at 9:23PM.
Note: The last train FROM MetLife Stadium will not depart Meadowlands Station any earlier than 1AM.

Good luck to all, those taking the bus may be smarter than me! At least the weather may pass us around lunchtime and leave us with a decent evening.

This is the link to the NJ part of the train schedule. Any NJT train from NY Penn Station that stops in Secaucus will get you to the transfer point. NJT Stones Schedule Secaucus Junction-Meadowlands

Yes. I saw 5 Voodoo lounge shows. The first four - DC and N J - were blah. The last one - in pouring rain in Philadelphia- was incendiary.

I saw a great show at Giants Stadium in the rain on a weeknight in East Rutherford in 1994 (or thereabout).

I recall I stopped at a home depot on the way to the show to purchase a clear plastic sheet that covered a few rows... Looks like we won't need that tonight.

I JUST FOUND OUT that the NY Penn Station Connector to MetLife does not start until 5:45 . . . thats a bit weird . . . but others have told me the same . . . I would double check that information . . . so if tailgating early ya need options . . I have a car service leaving from outside Walters 4 ish (Stones Dive bar - 1 block from Penn Station ) a couple of seats available

Forget the NJ Transit train.
Its not dependable and is a cluster-@#$%& after the show.
Like I said before earlier in this thread, best way to travel to Metlife Stadium from Manhattan is the Meadowlands Express bus from the Port Authority.
