  1. This is the kind of issue that I believed the fan forum that was proposed by Guy Oseary a couple of years ago could gave addressed. Unfortunately nothing ever seems to have come of it.
  2. I received my renewal notification email today. It only mentions the 2019 CD.
  3. The journey begins! Anyone aware of any special events planned for Seoul?
  4. Very disappointing to hear again but unfortunately not a bit surprising
  5. To me what's going on in Auckland with this list is the antithesis of what U2 espouse. It disappoints me to see the news reports from New Zealand which reflect badly on the fans and the band and the sight of people partrolling the line with a notebook is unedifying. Is this really the type of publicity U2 need or want or the with some shows not selling out maybe the old adage no publicity is bad publicity applies.
  6. While acknowledging that this is very much a first world problem, it's disappointing to see that all has not been good at the Auckland GA line. I've said it here before and I'll say it again, surely the band could get involved in this . It wouldn't take much to put some sort of random system in place that would be seen to be 'fair' to all. They have done so before. This was one of the issues that I believe the fan forum that Guy Oseary mooted a couple of years ago could have been used to address.
  7. Bono Speaking on Hoziers Cry Power podcast: 'We have this beautiful ecstatic album called Songs of Ascent. I don't know if we'll finish it soon or it'll take forever. It's about forever. That's its subject. And .... Songs of Ascent or the fifteen psalms and they're named after the fifteen steps from the womens chamber actually up to the temple in Jerusalem so it's an old idea ............ ' So it looks like Songs of Ascent might yet happen, though as was suggested by dmway previously it if it does see the light of day it will be as a stand alone project as opposed to being part of a trilogy.
  8. Jools Holland & His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra
  9. I see there are still over 1200 GA available. Not looking good for second show

    Happy New Year U2 Family What a great year U2 gave us in 2018. I was lucky enough to see them in Vegas, Madrid Manchester, Dublin and Berlin. To top it off I met Joe O Herlihy in the airport in Berlin after the 13th November show. A true gent who had time for a chat and a photo with everyone who approached him, so a seacial thank you and happy new year goes out to Joe.
  11. A great end to the tour in Berlin on Tuesday and I am so happy and thankful I was able to make the trip. I met Joe O Herlihy in the airport on Wednesday morning. He is a true gentleman and was happy to take photographs and chat with anyone the many people who approached him. Thanks Joe
  12. I will start this by saying I am genuinely gutted for those who were at Berlin 2 and cannot make the rescheduled show. My circumstances mean it would be possible for me to make the rescheduled show, I just need a ticket or tickets! My question relates to the possibility of tickets being put on sale again through the official channels and the Mods may be the most likely ones who could help with it. Is there any way at this stage that we can ascertain what kind of numbers of tickets are being returned for refund and if there is likely to be an on sale date announced? I know some fans have already sold or exchanged tickets but the numbers have seemed quite low so far.
  13. It will be interesting to see what kind of reaction there is in some of the English press if/when they fly the EU flag in England. They have gone to town on our Taoiseach (Prime Minister) for daring to represent Irelands interests.
  14. https://blog.ticketmaster.ie/latest-news/were-shutting-down-seatwave-8125 This looks like good news.
  15. Madrid up first for me, then Manchester and finally Dublin x 4. With a bit of look might squeeze in another.
  16. As its now August 1st in Berlin we can say that the European leg starts this month. Yippeeee!!!
  17. Just as you maintain that your rant was not specifically directed at me, my comment certainly wasn't an attack on you or your point and I apologise if I gave that impression. The problem with these forums is sometimes comments can be interpreted differently than intended and cause offence on all sides, so to engage now in a back and forth of I said you said would be futile.
  18. Excuse me and 'some people' for being so stupid. Actually no don't excuse me because it's not being stupid. This is a forum in which we interact about a band that I don't think it's too far fetched to say we all like. A big part of that interaction often involves speculation. I would class this topic as speculative and I expressed my opinion on it but I won't be losing sleep over it tonight because I have much more important things in my life to lose sleep over if I want to. You too of course are entitled to express your opinion, but I feel its was unnecessary for you to turn it into a 'rant'. Rant over !
  19. I must say having originally been in favour of the idea trilogy of albums I am now leaning towards preferring something new. Take a year or so off when the current tour ends, come back with some new fresh ideas if possible and put on a stripped back show.
  20. I agree doctornickriviera. What I would like to see is U2 ditching Live Nation/Ticketmaster/Seatwave/Guy O Seary at the end of the current contract and bring it all back home. To me it often feels like they have sold out us fans to some extent with this contract. Having said that I still can't tun my back on them.
  21. Yes I have to agree with you the Live Nation deal has not been good for fans.
  22. On a rational level it's hard top disagree with your points but with regards to U2 rationality probably goes out the door for most of us on here! Opportunities to see the band in this this kind of setting are few and far enough between so I am just expressing my, and probably some others, disappointment at not being able to enter the draw. While it is a Sirius XM event, I find it hard to believe that they would dictate to the band to this extent as to who they can give their own assignment of tickets to. In any event I am aware of at least one UK radio station competition that was giving away tickets to it. Hopefully they will put on something similar when thy come home. Dublin would be fine but The National Opera House in Wexford (Snow Patrol played there recently so its not totally beyond the realms of possibility .... is it?!) would be really good for me.
  23. It's a pity that the U2.COM draw for tickets is limited to US residents
  24. Yes 8.40 seems to have been the stage time for all shows so far
