  1. I hadn't listened to SoE since January. Not that I didn't like it when it first was released. I just was more interested in other music. But, I listened to SoE late one night driving home this week, and I really connected with it. Can't really explain why, but it felt nice. and calming. There's still things that I can nitpick about the record, but those are just personal preferences.. Listening to it got me really excited that I'm able to go to the Los Angeles shows.
  2. Yes, thank you for posting the facts. The gun planted also only had the cop's fingerprints on it. He killed Lamar Smith 6 inches away from him, and shot him 5 times.
  3. It's the right decision, although I am sympathetic to the people who traveled from out of town to St. Louis. The protests and the reason people are protesting right now in St. Louis is far more important than a concert.
  4. How could Ticketmaster not issue you a refund for something their software caused? I'm sorry that happened to you. A similar thing happened to me buying GA tickets to one of the IE shows at the forum. I unknowingly bought 2 GA tickets twice. The Ticketmaster agent I spoke to at the time was extremely helpful and offered me a refund.
  5. Local and life-long Phoenix resident here. If you are driving from a far distance like myself, be mindful of the traffic on the freeways. Rush hour traffic tends to get very busy starting around 3 to 330pm. Current weather forecast for Tuesday is high between 90 to 93 degrees with a chance of afternoon thunderstorm. Like the original post said, University of Phoenix Stadium has a retractable roof. Hopefully weather will cooperate and the roof will be open once Beck takes the stage. My only concert experience at the stadium was the U2 360 show and I remember the roof was open. I'm sure the U2 sound crew will be able to get the sound right if the roof is closed, but my personal preference is roof open. I found stadium info for Tuesday in this link: http://www.universityofphoenixstadium.com/events/2017/u2-the-joshua-tree-tour-2017 quote from info page: Event Information Box Office Opens: 10:00am Parking Lots: 3:30pm Gates Open: 5:30pm Concert Begins: 7:30pm General Admission Policy The fan-run wristband line/list for U2’s Joshua Tree 2017 Tour stop at University of Phoenix Stadium will begin on Tuesday, September 19th at 7:00am.

Guests who are unable to sign-up in advance at North loop road/Pat Tillman statue are able to go to Gate 2 starting at 3:30pm to reserve your spot behind the pre-entry GA floor line. *Camping out overnight will not be permitted on stadium grounds. Not sure if there needs to be a separate thread for the stadium info link Jason

  7. It is very interesting how much a crowd can make or break our own experience even with a long running band like U2. I was lucky to see this tour multiple times, and every time was surrounded by people who enjoyed the whole experience: songs / staging / setlist. ----J
  8. 'Stiff', 'performing at 80%' and 'unnatural' are words I would not use at all to describe Bono and the band this tour. They are playing amazingly well and really seem to enjoy performing the new material. To me the new songs are vastly improved over the studio recordings. To be honest, I only liked half the new songs on 'Songs of Innocence' when it was first released. But after seeing the shows, I find myself listening to it as much as my favorite U2 albums. I close my eyes and can vividly remember different parts of the show. And that is because the band is really on this tour. Bono's voice is as strong as ever.....search out the performance for 'All I Want is You' from the LA #4 show (May 31st) for my proof. It was the 20th song of the night, on a back-to-back night, and he totally went for it, and absolutely nailed it. I was lucky to be there that night on the GA floor, and I'll remember it forever. I will agree with what was said above, the show is fairly choreographed, especially the first half. All their tours have been since Zoo TV. But it did not at all take away my enjoyment nor the arena's enjoyment. I do noticed that Bono doesn't reach into the crowds anymore because any overexcited fan could potentially really injure him, and he would be back at square one in his rehab. Though everyone else is very active. Adam still exudes the total rock star stage presence. The Edge moves all over the stage, and Larry is still the stoic Larry. I will add, in my opinion, most fan uploaded YouTube videos (even the best ones) aren't a good representative of a concert. It doesn't matter if it's U2 or not. They're just fun to look at it, and relive a memory. Hope you get to see them this tour 'derekmcallister2'.... I think you'll be in for a treat. Jason
  9. It's so much better this tour. I have not experienced myself nor seen any pushing to get closer when a band member is near you.
  10. The Forum GA policy FAQ sheet doesn't explicitly say no detachable lense, but says no professional cameras. However most arenas don't allow detachable lenses.
  11. All of my extras for this Sunday are now sold.
  12. That is frustrating... The Phoenix venue never did, but since it was my hometown venue, I knew which sections were the best to pick from.
  13. Definitely go the Prince route. At the club gig of his I went to 2 years ago,signs were clearly posted and an pre show announcement was made by the drummer, and still a few people tried to take pics. Security kicked them out, it was amazing to witness.
  14. Phoenix 1 had 25 songs played only because they brought up that guy to ad-lib 'In God's Country'. The printed list showed 24. 7 songs from night 1 weren't on the night 2 list. Phoenix 2 had 23 songs played, 5 of which weren't played on night 1.
  15. Won't TM / Live Nation point to the typical end stage setup diagram for The Forum and say this is why they won't do anything? I think saying buyer beware is a weak reason. I know that's no help if you don't live in LA or go to a lot of shows there. It still sucks for those sections because no really knew anything when making a purchase back in December. Jason
