  1. Rollover Shows???

    I hope after the LA date that the go north to Seattle and Vancouver. They owe Vancouver after the lackluster Joshua Tree show and all the issues fans had just getting inside the venue. The Vancouver Joshua Tree show was probably among their worst shows in the last 20 or more years.
  2. Tickets prices

    I think U2 has taken the eXPERIENCE and iNNOCENCE thing a little too far. Not sure losing your iNNOCENCE to the financial sodomy the ticket prices are is the eXPERIENCE fans really wanted. What does Guy O'Seary have on Bono that the band signed off on these ticket prices?
  3. Very few experience got GA for Vegas. I was in immediately and nothing. Tried for 30 minutes and never any GA. I am sure the casino hotels are well stocked.
  4. Ticketmaster Sucks

    It gave them the advantage of trying local and if no luck to go elsewhere. West coast if they couldn't find local had way fewer options to look elsewhere.
  5. Ticketmaster Sucks

    I had to use the app on my phone to get it to work for LA. IE and Edge did not work for me on laptop. Las Vegas was a joke. GA gone in under 30 seconds. At least LA offered tickets for sale. Overall not impressed at all with the ticket buying experience. And U2 should have had all venues go on sale at same time. The 10AM local time zone gave east coast people a huge advantage. If they couldn't get in on local shows they could try going west, that option not available to those on the west coast. Very poorly thought out.
  6. I had the same experience with Las Vegas. It was a joke. Makes me think most GA's went to the hotels as they were gone within 30 seconds.
  7. Start and end time Vancouver

    U2 took the stage at 9:23 and the show ended at 11:18.
  8. Expensive. $50 CDN for t-shirts ($40 US?), $90 CDN hoodie ($75 US).
  9. I enjoyed the concert but it was uninspiring. I am not sure I saw the band crack a smile all night. Larry and Edge were grim as can be. Bono's voice was good but not great, seemed to lack a little power and evidenced by him not doing the opera voice in Miss Sarajevo. First the highlights; Sunday Bloody Sunday/New Years Day was a great one, two punch to start the show. A Sort of Homecoming - unexpected and very well done. Trip Through Your Wires - One of the few songs that I thought added energy to the night. Miss Sarajevo - the video was very well done. The Little Things Give You Away - always nice to hear a new song. The lowlights; The sound - even twenty rows back on the floor it was a bit boom-y and echo-y as hell. Pacing - way too many down tempo songs and the string of One Tree Hill, Exit and Mothers sucked every bit of energy from the show and was the wrong time for the band to leave the stage. Lena Dunham as a woman worth honoring (what the f were they thinking, she's admitted to molesting her sister). The Bono lead "Power of the people...." sing-a-long just flopped. More pacing - Streets was way too early, the video for Miss Sarejevo was so serious it needed to be followed up by something upbeat and known. The lack of passion by the band by the end of the show - to me it looked like they left saying "well that didn't go as expected". beautiful Day - I appreciate they re-worked the song but it didn't work for me but kudos for trying. Pacing aging - ending the show with an unknown song. I think there will be lots of tinkering with the show. I am sure Vertigo will be added. A few more up tempo songs are required as well. re-think the women you display and honor; Rosa Parks, the Suffragettes, Lena Dunham - one of these does not belong. i am interested in following the setlists and see how they evolve as evolve they must.
  10. Very disappointed by the offering this year. They're a band, I'm a fan of their music. So please give me music of some sort. Four photos, I'd rather they just saved the postage and environment and offered me a $30 choice without the photos. I expect there will be a download of the Paris show when the dvd comes out but without them saying anything that's just a guess. Such a let down after the last few years.
  11. Who's going to Paris both nights?

    I'm in for both nights on the floor. I'm from Canada and have never been to Europe. Really looking forward to spending a week in France with two guaranteed great nights.
