  1. Downloaded the four tracks and I can play them on Quick Player. I saved them to iTunes and they're there but it won't allow me to play them. Anything I'm missing?
  2. I ordered two collector tickets for Berlin 1. I'm Irish and don't speak German. While booking, the page didn't automatically translate to English so I panicked and booked. My delivery method states "Austria." Is there a way I can change that so I can just pick up the tickets at the box office in Berlin? Thanks
  3. Got them for Berlin. They were available for Manchester too but you needed a UK address. Don't know if they were available for the Belfast or Dublin dates as I got paperless credit card entry standing tickets
  4. Hi folks, Is there a link to the prices of the European shows? Specifically the Berlin, Manchester and yet to be announced Irish shows. I can find a price range but I'd like to know what GA and seating tickets cost. Also, any rumours when Irish shows will be announced? They'll probably be end of October/start of November after London, right and in the Point and Odyssey? 4 Dublin shows and 2 Belfast shows like i&e or 2 and 1 as this tour doesn't seem to have that many dates. Thanks
  5. I'm going tomorrow, 5th time seeing them at Croker. I've seen them in New Jersey and London this tour and not interested in queuing the whole day. I am however wondering does anyone know what time the band get to the stadium and what entrance they go in? A friend of mine got photos when they played the Point in 2015 with all the band. Will they take photos and sign autographs beforehand?
  6. I went to the New York and London concerts. I have to admit New York was better as it was pitch black when they came on stage but London was still brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed London and I was with a mate who was seeing them for the first time this tour and he thought it was epic. He was at the Coldplay concert in Croke Park the night before and he said that was unreal too. Croke Park is a brilliant place to see any band when the place is full so don't worry. Dublin will be my 10th U2 concert and 5th in Croke Park. There is nothing like seeing U2 in Dublin. As has been said previously, the atmosphere is incredible both inside and outside the stadium. Look, if this is your first concert of the tour, you're gonna be in awe of the whole show. Sunset is gonna be about 9.30pm on Saturday so they'll have only been on stage about 45 minutes at that stage. Plus, Noel Gallagher is a savage support act too!
  7. I'm 26 and have been a fan since I was 7 when they released the Greatest Hits of the 80s. I've seen them 7 times and will be seeing them 3 times this summer. - June 24th 2005 Croke Park, Dublin Vertigo Tour - July 24th 2009 Croke Park, Dublin 360 Tour - July 25th 2009 Croke Park, Dublin 360 Tour - July 27th 2009 Croke Park, Dublin 360 Tour - October 29th 2015 Millenium Dome, London i&e Tour - November 18th 2015 Odyssey Arena, Belfast i&e Tour - November 27th 2015 The Point Depot, Dublin i&e Tour - June 28th 2017 The Meadowlands, New Jersey Joshua Tree Tour - July 9th 2017 Twickenham, London Joshua Tree Tour - July 22nd 2017 Croke Park, Dublin Joshua Tree Tour
  8. I think and hope they'll focus the majority of the setlist on the 80s. This is my ideal setlist which I created on Spotify and plays really well. Beautiful Day Out Of Control The Electric Co. Gloria I Will Follow Running To Stand Still Red Hill Mining Town The Unforgettable Fire Trip Through Your Wires Exit One Tree Hill In God's Country Angel Of Harlem Desire Bullet The Blue Sky New Years Day The Sweetest Thing All I Want Is You Where The Streets Have No Name Pride With Or Without You Mothers Of The Disappeared Sunday Bloody Sunday I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For Bad One 40
  9. GA for the Meadowlands, Twickenham 2 and Croker. Cannot wait!
  10. Thanks. I'll do without the collectors ticket. Got one for Dublin anyway!
  11. Trying to buy two tickets for Twickenham and only delivery method is standard mail and only for people in Britain and the North East of Ireland. I'm from Dublin. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks
  12. GA for NJ and Dublin and hopefully London 2!
  13. Hi all, any idea when they will add second shows? A friend is gonna use his presale code for Dublin 1 while I'd like to use mine for Dublin 2. Is there a presale for added gigs?
  14. Hi folks, I've been a member but very rarely ever comment on the forums although I do check in to them especially around the time of a new album and tour. I went to London last month to see U2. First time I saw them outside of Dublin and first time indoors too. I was then part of the crew whose presale codes weren't working when the Irish dates were announced. I managed to get Belfast when tickets went on sale to the public as Dublin was all gone. I had given up hope of seeing U2 this tour in our hometown until a friend of mine who lives in London bought tickets on stubhub the day of the concert for like £50. Unfortunately, the prices on stubhub never went below €400 for the Dublin gigs. I was jealous of loads of my friends who were going to at least one of the Dublin concerts when I heard about the ticket drop on ticketmaster. On Sunday night, I got a ticket for €191 for Monday's gig but unfortunately had a few bills to pay so couldn't buy it plus wouldn't go to a concert by myself. I'm working Saturday night so have been constantly trying ticketmaster for Friday night for the past few days. I've read all the stories of people here being successful the past few days in getting tickets for Dublin. I tried countless times this morning before I left for work but to no avail. I then had a bit of a break during work, went online and got tickets. No fuss. €70 standing so myself and my best friend are going. This was about 3.30pm today when I bought them. I just want to say thanks to everyone for their knowledge that I was able to use to my advantage! If you've been unsuccessful, keep trying. Wouldn't have ever known ticketmaster release tickets to a "sold-out" show a day or two before. It makes sense with the explanation now. So, beginning when I was 14, seeing U2 during the Vertigo Tour in Croke Park (the first night with the bad sound), going to all three Croke Park concerts during the 360 Tour, seeing them in London last month (the Patti Smith one) and the first Belfast show last week, I can't wait to see them tomorrow night. If anyone who is attending tomorrow night and wants to say hi, I'll be the tall (6ft 7in) guy standing between the e and i stage wearing a Croke Park 360 Tour U2 t-shirt and a white kangol hat with a tricolour wrapped around my waist. Thanks again to everyone. I love this band and its fans are amazing!
  15. All standing tickets for the six shows are sold out. Saturday in Dublin is fully sold out. Rang U2 and they gave me a new code but paying more to sit down for a less enjoyable experience is a pain. Thinking about not going to any. I am going to London but seeing them in Ireland is brilliant.
