U2 tour 2015!!

Recommended Posts

Not a U2 fan but love the way they set up their tour. Indoor, couple of shows in a city, cool venues. Well done.

Interesting itinerary. Huge swaths of the US being skipped. Maybe some additional shows between NY and Turin?

Really like how they talk about a different feel between the two shows in a city......but based on their ticket prices in the past, I would hate to be a major U2 fan right now!! That is gonna get pricey.....

You can guarantee that Euro stadium dates for summer 2016 will go on sale around the time of these gigs next year.

Just in time for Christmas 2015.

It's all about money ain't a damn thing funny...

Looks like tickets for every show are all going onsale Monday? So should increase the chances for those like me who only want to go to one show and happy for seats. Complete contrast for bruce ticket buying.

Anyone got any links to websites less likely to crash? Like the lesser known gem of eventim UK for bruce shows when everyone else went in to the livenation site which crashed when diverting to ticketmaster.

It always bugs me when you can't see the full price information. Don't they realise people might want to confer with friends about which seats to go for? What's the point in hiding it?

Do not know about O2 as I have not looked, but with the set up for SSE Hydro in Glasgow

the seats look a better than usual option, the stage is situated right in front of the seated sections,

with a walkway from there to the back of the arena where the stage would normally be, and the

standing section is all around the stage and walkway.

How can a brand new arena have restricted view?

or will that be because of stage set config?

Imagine the uproar if bruce sold tickets for the pit for 220 quid! Suddenly the roll calls seem a lot more bearable

I can see your point, but I guess these will be actual pit tickets in the real sense of the world, not half a football pitch as some have been at Springsteen gigs in the past.

Indeed. But I wouldn't have paid 220 quid to be in the pit of 600 for leeds which was one of the best pit views in recent years. Ok I was ridiculously lucky, but I paid normal GA price and turned up at 2pm.

Thanks, Doc.

I can see the O2 configuration on the ticketbastard site now. Looks like a proper arena set-up with the stage in the centre. I'm slightly more inclined to go now, but still undecided.

It's disappointing that they are plaYing in so few cities. No Philadelphia?! I may have to wait until 2016 outdoors. Ugh.

Is GA available for the general public sale?

Yeah.....hence the reason I said this was gonna be pricey if you wanted to see the "Innocence" and the "Experience" version of the shows. You and a spouse / partner is gonna cost you over $800.

Just got off the phone with a buddy and the best he could get was $312 / ticket in a second level seat. Insane.
