  1. Must get round to posting some pics. One of my favourites as wanted to capture Bono against back drop figure. Finally got it.
  2. Interesting comments about the sound on Saturday. Personally I think Wembley is worse for sound but Twickenham not good, no matter how much you spend on sound equipment. A few people I spoke to said they struggled to hear what Bono was saying. For first time at U2 gig I used a pair of ear plug filters which I have for loud indie guitar driven gigs I have to attend. For the first time ever at Twickenham I had a decent sound. They took out the distortion and gave me a loud, but not too loud sound where I could hear every word clearly. Will definitely be wearing for Red Zone Dublin. For info the pair I used were Senner Pro.
  3. Did wonder if U2/Live Nation would allow BBC news report using drone footage of Twickenham build. Especially as brother in country at the moment with his news drones.
  4. Really good video showing how the screen design is erected, and drone footage of the finished stage setting. Gives a good idea of Red Zone layout for those interested.
  5. Bring back Keane or Stereo MC's - best supports in more recent years I've seen in States and UK. Go back further and Waterboys and The Alarm were pretty good.
  6. Most of the surrounding area tends to be permit only or limited time pay to park. The easiest way to the ground is train to Twickenham station. Queuing afterwards can be fairly lengthy - allow up to 90 minutes if you don't make a sharp getaway. On the plus side it will get you into central London quickly. A possible option for those wanting to drive and park near by is to park on the line between Twickenham and Reading. You will probably get away much quicker from station and you can pay to park car at another station. Twickenham station car park likely to be used for queuing on the day. Another option is to get a bus (or lengthy walk) to Richmond Station and catch tube from there. I've planned a few major events at Twickenham stadium and there are no easy solutions. For pop concerts it is generally worse as they don't employ people like me to look after the customer side. Their focus is where to park the container lorries.
  7. I cancelled 2 tickets I originally had for Dublin but never got back the pre sale credit on the code. Not too bothered as not planning to do any further dates for this part of tour.
  8. Yes Dublin. No code was required.
  9. I had no problem going in via the U2.Com link straight into Redzone at 9am. In fact I was probably in it earlier and then refreshed the page at 9am when they made tickets live. Less painful than previous times. I suspect many of the successful Red Zone ticket holders did the same. I've mentioned this elsewhere on the forum but for some reason Red Zone seems to be more popular this time round. that means a lot of members chasing very few tickets and many used to getting Red Zone losing out.
  10. Several 2nd nights confirmed by Live Nation
  11. If you read your order it will probably have pre sale somewhere on it re red zone.
  12. I discussed this with Ticketmaster today and total limit is 4 presale tickets per person. Red zone count as pre sale if marked as such on order. Your best bet is to cancel 2 tickets else risk losing all of them.
  13. Ive just released back to Ticketmaster 2 seats in 305 so someone may get lucky.
  14. VIP Red Zone is normally a Cat 1 seat and not to be confused with standing red zone.
  15. Likewise I had the smoothest ever U2 pre sale this time. Did my homework night before checking the links and realising via U2 website was best approach. Made sure logged in by 9am and immediately refreshed Dublin red zone at 9am. Picked up 2 tickets and paid. Whilst at pay stage (get longer time) went into London and got 2 seats exactly where I had wanted. All done by about 9.25. Re red zone issue what people forget is only Red Hill code holders were initially looking for tickets. I doubt few ended up with general public. So may look bad but I expect there are lots of happy long term U2 fans out there. I doubt red zone pen holds more than 2-300 so always going to sell very fast. That said, surprised by how many on board wanting red zone. Last tour I struggled to give away a spare red zone for London. The bot pictures were tedious but they are there to stop touts buying up everything. Sadly with prices so high fans will buy extra and sell some to pay for their ticket. This is an ever increasing problem and with Live Nation now the effective owner of tours will not go away. The higher the ticket price the higher the number of 3rd party sales.
