    St Louis Live Thread #U2eiTour

    just a spectacular show. I really liked how it ended as the Songs of Innocence tour began, with Bono in the back of the hall with the lone light bulb. A fitting bookend to that equally spectacular tour.
  2. Does anyone know who is opening for U2 in St. Louis may 4, 2018????

      Hey Max, when I was looking at the Unforgettable Fire tour information from 1984, I noticed an omission. In between the the 12-9-1984 show in Ohio and the 12-15-1984 show in SanFransico, I attended the 12-11-1984 show in Chicago at the Aragon Ballroom. I belive the Waterboys were the opening act. Below is some info on that show from www.u2gigs.com

    Tulsa Live Thread #U2eiTour

    first of all - everyone have a great time tonight, those of us who cannot attend opening night are mega jealous! For those having angst about the GA line, the heavy metal band Iron Maiden does a cool thing for their fan club members. All of their shows are GA on the floor. They have a drawing about a month before each show for what they call "First To The Barrier" which allows fan club members (plus 1 guest) with GA floor tix entry to the venue 15 minutes early so they can get prime positions on the floor. I would think U2 could easily adopt this practice or do something like allow fan club GA ticket holders entry to the floor via a separate line and let that line in first before the general public. Or maybe I'm just rambling... anyway, everyone have fun tonight.

    First time in St. Louis

    it's worth noting that the Cardinals are in town playing a game that night vs their main rival the Chicago Cubs, so downtown should be hopping. A few blocks East of Scottrade Center on Clark St, across from the baseball stadium is Ballpark Village, which should be jammed with U2 and baseball fans. Around Scottrade Center there's not a whole lot near by but within walking distance (it's supposed to be a nice day with sunny skies and temps in the 70's) there is The Hard Rock, Maggie O'Brien's, Sybergs, Schlafly Tap Room, Maurizio's, Alumni. If you have a car I'd recommend a visit to Pappys Smokehouse on Olive near St. Louis Univ. or Bogart's Smokehouse on 9th St in the Soulard neighborhood. The Soulard area also has a lot of bars that may be running shuttles to and from the show
  5. agreed - very smooth and easy process
  6. show is cancelled http://www.u2.com/news/title/st-louis-show-cancelled
  7. of note, the last time U2 played this venue 20 years ago Macphisto made an appearance

    Heads UP

    a further head's up. There's a pending hot button murder trial involving a former police office charged with murdering an African American. The verdict is expected Friday and if it's a "not guilty" verdict the you now what might hit the fan in St. Louis - The Governor has activated the National Guard and police are preparing for massive protests http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/police-to-begin--hour-shifts-as-st-louis-awaits/article_8b978ee9-80d8-5beb-9401-3933653f9b3e.html

    St. Louis Info

    not sure where you're staying and/or if you'll have a car but go to Small Batch if you can. Not a 100% vegetarian place but lots of great vegetarian food and great whiskey http://smallbatchstl.com/

    St. Louis 2 x GA Wanted

    just keep checking on Ticketmaster - GA's will open up before the show, even on the day of the show, they always do

    St. Louis Info

    for those not familiar with the layout, the stadium in downtown directly across from the Lumiere Place casino/Four Seasons Hotel - it's withing walking distance from Busch Stadium where the Cardinals play. The Cardinals are not in town that weekend so there should be plenty of spots to meet up have dinner and drinks before the show. I'm sure Ballpark Village will have a pre show event of some kind as well

    St. Louis Info

    just keep trying, GA will be available for awhile, even if it says "not available" just keep trying
  13. hello from St. Louis - if anyone's planning to travel here for the show, it is on a Saturday night, let me know if I can be of any help with questions on where to stay, eat, visit, etc.. Good news is the Cardinals are not in town that weekend and, of course, no NFL football anymore.

    Unsuccessful going for Chicago GA's

    Bigwave, truly appreciate your help on this. The Ticketmaster folks are buffoons and do not care one bit. This is clearly some technical issue related to the Chicago show only. Every other show has worked fine. This is very frustrating.
