    Lead the way, ladies!
  2. I plan on being at in Dublin at The Church on 11/26 and after the show on 11/27. I'll be wearing a hat, so look for me!
  3. A very emotional morning - 1 desktop on Internet Explorer, 1 laptop on Chrome and 1 mobile device. Unable to secure through TicketMaster. Purchased 2 tickets through their subsite, SeatWave. My first experience. They don't relay seat #s, just sections. I took a leap of faith and both 2. Texas resident - started process at 3am.
  4. When did the band move to the smaller stage?

    How was your VIP experience?
  6. Did the band show any video for Song for Someone? They had a promo a few weeks back asking for fan footage, with the incentive to show the video at the concert.
  7. Thanks, guys for mentioning the credit card entry at venue and the Ticket Master history.
  8. The intermission might be needed for fans to decompress from the first half. (The hint of social injustice displays for the first half reminds me of their days streaming Croatia during war time during their concerts) I'm surprised there was no mention of SalesForce's plans to enhance the concert experience.

    Tips for LA virgin!

    Here's a suggested itinerary for the day of your LA concert . Each stop is U2 related. Have fun! MORNING Grammy Museum (LA Live) 800 West Olympic Blvd @ Figueroa St. Between Flemmings and The Farm $13, 11:30am – 7:30pm Sunday 10 am – 7:30 pm LUNCH Yardhouse (LA Live) American food. Classic Rock. Beer Open 11 a.m. AFTERNOON Loews Hollywood Hotel (where U2 concert VIPs attendees are staying) 1755 N. Highland Ave, 90028 EARLY EVENING Eveleigh (Bono dines there) 8752 West Sunset Blvd, 90069 Brunch: Saturday and Sunday 10am-3pm Dinner: Sun-Wed 5pm-10pm; Thurs-Sat 5pm-11pm Late Night Menu: Sun-Wed 10pm-11:00pm; Thurs-Sat 11pm-12:30am
  10. What I find interesting is that, in interviews, the band refers to the tour and not tour legs. Most fans assume they're going to follow suit with legs but this might not be the case. My perception is, the 2015 dates are it. I found this recent Irish Times article interesting, which confirms my observation. It's speculates that the band is not saying anything about the future to "wait and see" about Bono's health.
  11. Great thread. I've been analyzing and predicting performance dates in Dublin since 360 ended. My hunch - 3 days within the last 2 weeks of December 3Arena BUT not an official IE concert. Perhaps a Music Generations concert featuring U2. Perhaps donors for the organization having first dibs to tickets, then tickets being available to the public.
  12. You, I'm a waiting for you.

  13. Happy anniversary U2! The world is a better place because of you!

  14. 9.09 St. John Divine on the line. I'm feeling lucky today!
