  1. Really hoping for a scope during Acrobat for this last time.
  2. Mixlr on phone, Periscope surfing on iPad and this forum on laptop. And I'm sure I'm not the only one.
  3. u2gigs is back on as well. The two sound a bit different, so will need to see which one sounds better.
  4. On mine the shipping email shows my old address but the order page in the shop shows the correct address. I e-mailed them and will try calling tomorrow. I also updated my address months ago. I'm sure they will make it right one way or another.
  5. No doubt! I get a little sad at the end of every show, so the last one is going to be really tough!!! So glad that we are able to listen to and sometimes even watch all of these shows!
  6. Nice dose of Achtung Baby with UTEOTW, EBTTRT and Acrobat! Maybe if we wish hard enough and keep talking about it there will really be a AB 30th anniversary tour!!!
  7. Would love to see them come back and play the Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience albums, in their entireties. Nothing else. I know it will never happen, and lots of heads in the crowd would explode, but I think that would be awesome. That would be the real i&e/e&i tour!
  8. The ending is deliberate and makes sense with the overall theme and arc of the show. People always clamor for them to start playing 40 to close shows, but not a lot of "giddy up" in that one either. And no, 45 was not "voted by the American people." Don't forget he lost "the people" by 3 million.
  9. Still plenty of tickets left, but I wouldn't call it "empty." Highly unlikely that they would cancel at this point. It looks like there are about 1,600 tickets left, not including floor GA which must be mostly sold since there have been periods when only resale were available for floor. Capacity is reported to be 17,560, so this makes the show over 90% sold. Hardly a disaster. I'm just hoping for a good, lively crowd. I don't think some empty seats will discourage the band from putting on the best show they can.
  10. At the end of the day, I think the venues couldn't care less about what is fair. They just want to do whatever is easiest for them. When they see a line of several hundred people already formed prior to their "official" lineup time, the easiest thing for them to do is just go ahead and move that line to the official spot.
  11. The venues ALWAYS end up endorsing the fan-run line, so it comes down to join it or go to the end of it.
  12. Yeah, not all 45 supporters are KKK members, but all KKK members are certainly 45 supporters. That speaks volumes. Bono has really been pretty restrained with his comments on the current disgrace. I would love to hear him speak for an hour or so about how he really feels. And he would undoubtedly try to find some positive things to say, which is difficult.
  13. Disagree that a lottery system is better. While the fan-run system is less than perfect and multi-day lineups are unfair to many people, those who are willing to do some time in line should be rewarded. In your case, softball is optional.
  14. Yeah, the lack of sold out shows for pretty much the entire US leg is surprising. Could be that this will be the last tour with multiple dates in more than a couple cities. Hoping for another US leg next year, but considering that they have toured here 3 of the last 4 years maybe it won’t happen.
  15. 700 tickets left makes the show 96% sold. I doubt they’re too worried about the unsold tickets. Not saying that I agree with the pricing, but TM/LiveNation know exactly what they are doing.
  16. I sure hope they do another U.S. leg in 2019. Not counting on it, but hopeful. If not, it could be a long time before we see them in the U.S. again after this. One show down for me this tour and one to go, and I'm going to savor every minute of that second one.....
  17. Ah! But it would totally be worth it! ?
  18. You're only 2 hours from Omaha. Tickets are still available.
  19. What is the recorded song before One? Something about Women of the World Take Over, but I can’t find it.
  20. There is typically a separate line for Red Zone. If you just keep checking around the entrances and asking people I bet you'll find it.
  21. Being pro-choice does not mean that one supports abortion.
  22. If your name was put in a notebook and you had a number put on your hand, that was the fan-run lineup. The venues always end up endorsing the fan-run line. It’s been that way for some time now and it’s highly unlikely that it will change on this tour.
