Could be great, small stadium, wonderful city - not sold out though. I'm really looking forward to it after my last gigs inParis

I know it's not the place for it but I have 2 spare front of stage (pit) tickets and am happy to see them go either to someone who's not already going, or someone looking for an upgrade as these tickets unsurprisingly sold out some time ago. I would hate to see them going to waste.

Almost bedtime for me now, up at 4 to head for the airport

Arrived here yesterday, my first time here and a remarkable and beautiful city it is. Nothing about Springsteen anywhere tho - although its all over that Coldplay, Foo Fighters and the RHCPs will all be here in the next few months. The Uni student who drove us from the airport had never heard of Bruce (actually he said he thought he did, but sometimes you know the locals are just being friendly). There seem to be plenty of tickets left too.

All that said, its obviously a city of tourists and you'd expect plenty of those there tomorrow night. Oh...and it's really HOT here, so a sweaty one down front for many of us.

Can't wait................

Now then ... this is a place I'd love to visit ... but somebody told me that there wasn't much to see. I love all things historical and wouldn't go at the weekends .... is it a place that an old wifey, on her own, would find interesting?

It is beautiful. There is lots to see and just wandering around is fantastic. I haven't been there for years but when i visited I thought it was gorgeous and full of history.

Prague castle is apparently the largest castle in the world though it looks like a cathedral to me

Yep it's a small city, so you probably could "do it" on a long weekend. If you like history you would love this place. Went to the New Synagogue yesterday for the holocaust exhibition - not a skeleton-figure graphic anywhere, but the most moving thing I have ever witnessed. So beautifully done, seemed to get something in my eye there for a minute.

AMIW, that IS a cathedral - but its the cathedral attached to and part of the castle. (Trust me, I'm a tourist)

Now just gotta sort out how the trams work here, so I can get to Synot Tip.
