    All I know is that I can't wait for this show - from the sounds of it, not a ton of winners/fans will make it in (unless more contests come down the pipeline) so I feel super stoked to be able to go. My flight/hotel are booked so it's really real.

    The contest runs through June 8th. They play it twice. I've only gotten no ring and a hang up or the Cisco messaging thing. I got in my car this afternoon and it was playing. First half of the song, but missed the beginning. Didn't get through. One minute difference and I could have heard the beginning of the song. There is quite a bit of delay on the app and online vs the car. It varies but I think it's at least two minute a lot of the time. Sigh... I wish everyone posting in this thread could go.

    I received an email this evening asking me to accept or decline by 6 PM tomorrow so they could find another u2.com subscriber if I needed to decline. I hope it works out, and you are able to go too!!!!!!’

    Why does U2 play the same set list in back to back nights in the same city ? They only rotated Gloria for Red Flag Day at Chicago 2 and they have now settled into their comfy 24 song setlist. I'm sorry U2 but the current set list is weak. Why do you continue to play I Will Follow, Sunday Bloody Sunday (acoustic yuck !), Pride every show on every tour ? Also songs like One and Elevation and Vertigo have been overplayed also. Acoustic version of beast thing is weak also. You would be better of playing Bad seguing into All I Want Is You and segue into Streets. Why not play Song for Someone, Land Lady and Little Things (the only 2 good songs on the new album in my opinion). I was so glad to hear Acrobat and Wild Horses played on opening night but why have you dropped Wild Horses after only one show ? Why night bring back Kite and play some other songs that have never been played live like When I Look At The World and songs never played live in the US like Hawkmoon 269 or Heartland ? The bottom line here is that most of the fans will attend both shows in the same city so you need to change it up more at each show (and not just one or two songs). We know you rehearsed the Fly in Laval and that song would be a welcome addition to set list also. Maybe bring back Love Is Blindness to close the show instead of 13 ?. You guys have a week off before the Montreal shows. Hopefully you can get some rehearsal time in to change things up.

    I feel like a sucker. After seeing dozens of U2 concerts for the last 30 years, and being a member of this club for nearly a decade, I can't believe this band has let me down so much with its SOE concert pricing. I spent an hour in November trying to work through the Ticketmaster presale, after spending the annual $50 fan membership only to find very limited seats under $350 in the lower bowl of the Forum. So I shelled out $295 a ticket for the latter half of the upper bowl. Today (and, silly me for not noticing this until now), but I'm seeing that there are many seats SEVERAL rows closer to the stage than my seats at ONE-THIRD the price. What is maddening is that the Ticketmaster map indicates that some tickets in this better location are being re-sold (by fans like me) literally right next to these lower-priced seats. So, 10 rows closer to the stage from my $300 seats, there are seats going for $111. And these are adjacent to ones being re-sold by fans for $350. Am I living in an alternative universe???? With the price of 2 tickets, taxes, fees and fan club membership, I am paying nearly $750 to have "fan access" to ticket sales, yet I have WORSE seats than if I paid $250 for better seats today. Oh, I should mention that for this "Silver Fan" price I received a hard copy of the SOE CD. Which would be great if had a CD player. Or $500 more in my pocket. Seriously, U2???? REALLY REALLY BUMMED.

    So I did an online chat with Sirius to say the number goes through to a Cisco message. They tell me contest ended on 6/4. I tell them this is for a different contest a dial-in one for tickets and no transport. They act confused and are useless. I'm done listening for 8 -12 hours a day. Might even be done with subscription at this point

    Yes, I really like the idea of this magic mirror that reveals his true identity. It drives home the message that very evil things can appear normal and harmless if we don't watch out for them. Going back to ZooTV, the Helmut Kohl phone calls in Germany were MacPhisto at his most chilling, especially his final message in Berlin when the line was engaged. That's where you'll find the roots of the current scary incarnation.

    Lots of potential there for interesting "Night Two" tweaks. They are even playing 4 nights in Milan in October, and it would be a travesty to have four identical shows to what they've done thus far. I enjoy the first half of the show more than the second half. If I could wave a magic wand, I'd make some big changes to the second part, and some small tweaks to the first part. For the first part of the show.: While "I Will Follow" is always great live, they have played it a lot in recent tours (sometimes swapping ElectricCo or Out of Control, which they could do this time as well). To fit with the SoE theme, a mind-blowing choice out of left field would be "Another Time Another Place" instead. Or, to really get the crowd going, play "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" before "The Ocean", just like how they used to end their shows in 1981. I can live without "Beautiful Day" at this point. Instead, make sure to play "Red Flag Day" at every show. My selfish set list for first part of show: Love is All We Have Left The Blackout Lights of Home Red Flag Day Gloria Another Time Another Place / 11 O'Clock Tick Tock (alternate them each night) The Ocean Iris Cedarwood Road Raised By Wolves (can still have a Sunday Bloody Sunday intro, to tell the childhood story, but keep it short, and weave it into RBW) Until the End of the World For the second part: I respect the crowd-energizing power of Elevation, Vertigo, and Desire to open the second set, as well as "Pride" to fire up the crowd later, but I am tired of them all, and would make substitutions. Here is a chance to inject some variability into Night One vs. Night Two set lists, to keep things interesting. I also respect the band's desire to perform their new songs (YTBTAM, GOOYOW, American Soul), but I especially don't care for American Soul, and would lose it (including the political references), replacing it with a more unifying "Please" at that juncture in the show. To maintain SoE content, play "The Showman" (which IMO is better than either Summer of Love or Landlady for a live show, as opposed to on the recording). I would retain only one slot for the "classic hits", and there they can alternate New Year's Day (full version) and Streets. I would move "Acrobat" to a more powerful position, right before equally powerful "Love is Blindness" to close out the main set with awesomeness. Add a couple of surprises that will go over well (the first four slots allow for that), and here's my selfish second part of the show: Electrical Storm / Magnificent (alternate them each night) City of Blinding Lights / Vertigo (alternate them each night) (the crowd really seems to go nuts for Vertigo, so keep it for one night per city) Crumbs from Your Table / Miracle Drug (alternate them each night) Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses / Heartland (alternate them each night) ["Kite" is another possibility, but I think the other two would work better] You're the Best Thing About Me (electric version would be better, but if they keep acoustic version, then follow it with The Showman, also acoustic) The Showman Get Out of Your Own Way New Year's Day (full version) / Where the Streets Have No Name (alternate them each night) Please Acrobat Love is Blindness Closing with "Love is Blindness" (the live version that we know and love) would be huge. For the encore: I would include four songs, starting out with something to rouse the fans, then getting back to SoE, adding "Little Things". Two Hearts Beat as One / The Fly (alternate them each night) Love is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way The Little Things That Give You Away 13 (There is a Light)  [this covers the elements of "Song for Someone" already, so no need to do both] A total of 26 numbers (11 + 11 + 4), 7 of which alternate between Nights One and Two, and with 10 songs from SoE. The first half would be stable and mostly unchanged from the actual set list, whereas the second part would be totally overhauled, and would have four alternating slots. Fans would appreciate attending both shows of a two-night stand.

    Man.... and I refused to by a $300+ fan ticket because I was holding out for a GA... never knew this was the case. Ridiculous..... still holding out and refuse to pay scalper/ticket vendor prices. Old school U2 fan who just might miss her first tour.... in a very long time.

    This is what they do now, they price according to demand knowing that fans will pay silly money , then discount the unsold seats as the gig is approaching. It’s an utter rip off, but it’s supply and demand capitalism at its worst
