U2 fans have been left furious after they were forced to wait in a kilometer-long queue in the pouring rain on Friday evening to see the Irish music legends perform in Sydney.

Fans queued from 8am today for general admission at the Joshua Tree Tour event at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Speaker: First I look at what subjects they ’ve put down that seem to interest them the most. Keep in mind that sometimes they don’ t know exactly what I ’d like to do practice interviewing, but we simply don’ t have the time or resources for that, which is a shame because students would find it very useful.

The warm-up bands started at 6.30pm but an hour-and-a-half later fans were complaining the general admission line was still a kilometer in length.

'It's out of control - half a mile long queue at 8pm to get into GA,' one Twitter user wrote.

Another video taken of the line on Driver Avenue showed those with only floor access to the event queuing well past the now-demolished Allianz Stadium.

Some who may have otherwise missed the start were fortunate though a weather delay meant support act Noel Gallagher did not arrive on stage until 6.50pm.

Once inside the venue, concertgoers - some of whom paid $530 for their tickets - were also unimpressed with the set-up, complaining about the big screen not being turned on.

The SCG's official Twitter account attempted to appease angry fans by saying the screen would be turned on after the fourth song.

But one fan claimed that was not the case, saying 'we're way past song four and still no big screen.'

'I paid more than $250 for a ticket and I can't even see the band - worst organisation ever!' they added. 

'Shocking staging and no screen,' one person wrote on social media. 

'Show's started now and new seats are c---. Thanks for the stuff up,' one person added. 

One attendee said the event was a 'complete shambles', although it wasn't clear what aspect of the organisation of the event she was referring to.

Other complaints included the lack of a raised stage, meaning it was difficult for fans to see who was performing.

'Shocking seating arrangement and set up - money back,' one person wrote. 

As many as 50,000 are expected at the two Sydney performances of the tour on Friday and Saturday night, and the SCG had laid out a strict policy for general admission before the event.

Organisers said no queuing was allowed before 8am for general admission, and the first 500 ticketholders in line would be given a numbered wristband.

The wristbands meant they could leave at any time and retain their place in the queue. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted the SCG and event promoters Live Nation for comment.
