    Being On The Skinny Rail Worth It?

    @bgans, so glad my suggestion helped. I'm 5'4" and know exactly how you feel. I'm a GA Floor guy all the way, but there have been shows where I spent good amount of time peering between taller people's heads, which was just about everybody. I don't always get GA floor tickets because of this, but the floor is where I want to be, The rail is the best if you want to be on the floor and you're short. I like you, couldn't see the screen either, but would rather focus on the band members. They do such a great job moving around to that everyone gets a chance to see them up close. This is a great shot of Edge!
  2. bonorocks, I am right there with you. I too experience the debacle that was Verified Fan access. I am a U2 Official Fan Club member and have been for over 15 years. I too did not get texted an Access Code on the day of the pre-sale and had to join the teeming horde. I spent the next two days on the and finally got through and spoke with rep who sold me two tickets for $943. At that point, I was determined to lock up a pair. Many Zooptopians in these forums say, wait, more tickets will become available closer to the show. I should have listened. There is so much wisdom here. But, I am an ignorant man. Ever since Live Nation/Tickemaster took over, it has gotten progressively harder and more expensive. Sure, our boys are the biggest band in the world and demand is very, very high. But it should still be easier. On the upside, I had great seats and the show kicked @$$. I am now trying to figure out how to score tickets to one of their shows in Dublin. It will be my first time seeing them outside the States. But, I'm not confident I will get tickets. Hope you still had a great time last the show.

    Being On The Skinny Rail Worth It?

    I agree with Rich T, and I thought I was in a great spot, but ended up wishing I was on the other side. I was on the right side (if facing the main stage), which is the same side as the camera dolly. Every time one of the band members got close to me, so did the camera.
  4. Thanks, lukylsp, I'll definitely keep that in mind. I've heard from a few other Zootopians that tickets drop like that. It's a little unnerving to head to Dublin without tickets in hand, but I'm trying to keep the faith. I don't endorse re-sellers, either.
  5. I Will Follow, New Year's Day, Pride, WOWY, Bullet, One (unless the perform it like the used to, ex. ZOO TV), Beautiful Day, Cedarwood Road I want to put Elevation in there, but that song really gets the crowd--and me--going. Same with Vertigo. Taking into consideration that their next tour will (probably) be less SOE & SOI heavy, I'd like to see some deeper cuts. I'm sure this is where many of us will diverge. I'd love to see: Angel of Harlem Love Rescue Me (my favorite on that album) So Cruel Wild Horses
  6. I second that emotion. It would be so awesome to see two shows and they are both so different. I caught both shows in San Jose, and while they were both pretty awesome, it would been spectacular if they really varied the setlists. One of things I read was that they also like to keep the sets similar for when they record a show for the DVD. On that night, they want to be at there most practiced. I'm not sure if that is the right word or not, but I can understand the logic behind that.
  7. Thank you, Heather. I've heard of it, but haven't visited the ticket-selling portion of the site. I will definitely check it now. You nailed my biggest concern--scalping. I'm a guy on a budget and sometimes those ticket prices (like n StubHub) are out of my reach.
  8. Good to know; much appreciated. I will do that. It would be great to lock up a pair of tickets before I land, but if it takes meeting up with the seller on the day of the show, no problem. Thanks again, Rich. I think we've communicated before. My name is Rich, too. Rich H.
  9. Thanks, Rich. How would I buy tickets for a sold out show, say Dublin?
  10. I too liked both shows in SJ. Funny, I was thinking about trying to catch a show in Europe this fall. I've never seen them outside the States and it is on my my bucket list. I just have no idea how to do it. I'll be traveling to Ireland, France and Italy. I'd love to get tickets, but think I'll have to buy them from resellers. Unless there is another way.

    Any Americans Going/Gone to Dublin Show?

    I'm getting too old for GAs, even though I was right on the rail for 2nd show at SAP Center, in San Jose. The crowd around us was super-cool. We all agreed to look out for each (i.e. saving each other's spots during bathroom/bar breaks). But I'm guessing the crowd in Dublin might be a bit more boisterous and feisty. I'd love to get me some Reserved Seats, but they are sold out. I'd love to know how to do it.

    Any Americans Going/Gone to Dublin Show?

    It's on my bucket list, but I have no idea how to do it. I noticed the Dublin shows sold our very, very quickly. I will be travelling to Europe in the fall and would love to go.

    T shirts

    There wasn't a very large selection at SAP Center in San Jose. I bought three shirts; one of them was specific to San Jose (the red, white and blue bullhorn). But I'm guessing that it will be offered at other venues with that venue's city. I think I counted about six shirts.
