A thought came to mind, what if the band did the entire Achtung Baby album like Springsteen has done recently.

Hey, a fan can dream can't I? But THAT would be the balls!!!

Me too, Kris! Ticket reservations start in 10 minutes, we would only have to pay for the flight... But I have to work on Friday! mad.gif

@ Beth: I do think there will be a live stream, but maybe it will available only in Europe :( I can check later, anyway.

And let's hope Bono will still have his voice... I wonder if they will bring the UV mic like on SNL laugh.gif

Hmmm, trying to get the tickets and its all locked up of course. Bad thing is the messages are all in German so had to go to Babel Fish and translate to figure out what was happening. Had even gotten to where i could pick two tickets and had a shopping cart come up and then....German messages that looked like wait but actually say to try again. Frustrating...but expected. Good Luck to anyone else trying though! I have to go back to bed soon cause I have work in a couple of hours ;-)

Exactly what I had. I could go for 2 tickets in the A section but there was no link to 'validate' and then got bounced to an error page.
