  1. Here's one I put on U2Start. As described above. Startingwith the JT album, to leave room for highlights off the recent albums & arena tours. Long set, as this part of the world has been ignored for a while. Never going to happen. The Joshua Tree + i+e+i1. Where the Streets Have No Name2. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For3. With or Without You4. Bullet the Blue Sky5. Running to Stand Still6. Red Hill Mining Town7. In God's Country8. Trip Through Your Wires9. One Tree Hill10. Exit11. Mothers of the Disappeared*** Intermission (Love Is All We Have Left) ***12. The Blackout13. Lights Of Home / Red Flag Day14. Zoo Station15. The Fly16. Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses17.

  2. Me too. Loved both arena tours & feel some of the new songs will translate well in a stadium. Especially Blackout on the mother of all screens! I was surprised how good Love is Bigger was live, & think it could be a great closer. I feel that the old school start to JT 2017 worked, but didn't enjoy the set after the JT album. So I'd definitely want changes to the later parts of the set, to incorporate SoI & SoE. Actually, although I enjoyed it, I hope they also scrap the old school opening & start with the JT, straight off the bat! Unlike Europe & the US in summer, all shows for this leg will start after sunset. So it will be possible to open with Streets, without the visuals being negatively effected. Yes, I know, most people think it would be crazy to open with Streets. It's best with a good build up, & a great segue. It also gets the crowd going, bringing that middle part of a show to life. True. But opening with the JT leaves a lot of room later in the show for the newer material & highlights from the arena tours, which this part of the world missed out on. After Mothers of the Disappeared, we could get a trippy intermission, along the lines of The Fly, HMTMKMKM & LIAWHL. Then straight into The Blackout. Boom, total change of tempo & atmosphere. Perfect to introduce U2's newer material (& some classics) to Oceania & Asia. Highly unlikely, probably not a popular view, but I think it could be great.
  3. Dynamic price reductions for Sydney 2 are at extreme levels now. Bay 30, was CAT 1 ($365), now CAT 5 ($62). Just the final few rows atm. As it's concourse (lower bowl), there's a chance of some obstruction from a sound booth, depending on where the booths are located, but should be ok as these are $365 seats for Sydney 1.
  4. As Max has said, nothing is known at this stage. Although it is common for GA in Japan to enter by ticket number, with no queues forming until the late afternoon, just before entry. Ticket numbers are expected to be allocated in the order they were purchased. So people who purchased tickets early in the Red Hill presale will likely be the first onto the arena floor. It's a ll guess work at this stage though. Japan looks like such an amazing place. If you haven't been there before, & have the time, I'd recommend arriving early & spending some extra time there. Getting your ticket from 7-eleven when you arrive, & checking up on the GA process. That's what I'll be doing. Although it's not in central Tokyo, transport to Saitama Super Arena looks quite easy & efficient. So it's possible to stay in areas of central Tokyo & be at the arena in under an hour.
  5. Lots of price reductions for Sydney 2 over the last week. Bay 10, now CAT 2 $265 (previously CAT 1 $370). Bay 12, now CAT 3 $193 (previously CAT 2 $265). Plus the big one, CAT 5 $62 reduced from CAT 2 $265! Initially these large reductions to CAT 5 were for the back few rows of the Churchill Stand (section 10) & the Brewongle Stand (section 6), which is the rear of Edge's side. Then it moved to the final few rows of the Trumper Stand (sections 310, 311, 312 & 313), which is the rear of Adam's side. But reductions ended up occurring as far forward as row J in the Trumper Stand, which is just in the front half of the rows (which are A-Z, AA, BB & CC). Managed to get 2 cheap seats for my sister in the Trumper Stand, section 313, row K. $62, bargain! These reductions to CAT 5 have currently moved back to row X of the Brewongle stand (section 6), one of the final few rows.
  6. More price reductions for Auckland 2. $60 East Stand uppers available.
  7. I only have a confirmation number (or whatever they called it). One number, for the purchase of two tickets to Japan 2. It's 13 digits long, starting with 242. I have friends who purchase tickets around the same time, with numbers starting with 243 & 246. Ending in all sorts of numbers, from the hundreds to 6 & 7 thousand. So there appears to be no order. I'd say we won't know our ticket numbers until we pick up our tickets at 7-eleven.
  8. Ticket drop or price reduction for Auckland 2 a couple of days ago. There are now $60NZD seats available, towards the back of the Upper South stand.
  9. I guess there's a lot of hopeful people. I agree it's wishful thinking, & very unlikely the will be another show, but you never know. The seats (which were very low capacity compared to other venues) sold out quickly. The GA's which is pretty large, like most venues has been a slow burn, even the front GA wasn't particularly quick. Yeah, given the Chinese government's stance an human rights, there's a good chance U2 wouldn't want to play there. In any casez it's almost a certainty that they wouldn't be allowed to perform in China. As they performed at the Tibetan Freedom festival.
  10. Nah, not odd I wouldn't think. Melbourne sold out quickly (though they've reconfigured it, & added a few more seats & GA), but won't get another show by the looks of it. Auckland 1 sold out extremely quickly, but Auckland 2 sales appear to be very disappointing. These are both far bigger venues though.
  11. It's very slow, so I don't like your chances. Especially as Live Nation are now saying Melbourne won't get a second show, & it sold out very quickly (though it's a much larger venue than Seoul). I'd say the only chance to sell a second show in Seoul would be if they put seats on the floor. The seats in the stands sold out quickly, but the GA standing tickets have been slow to sell.
  12. Ticket drop for Brisbane. GA's, go get them! Thanks to kings for the notification.
  13. Cheers kings, I'll put this in the ticket drop thread too.
  14. Back in the old days (ZooTV) I remember we had no chance to select seats in the mad rush of ticket sales. The first people got seats closer to the stage, those later, further away. My guess would be that, like GA, the seats will be ranked by ticket number. Those who purchased their tickets first (Red Hill Presale group) will have the lowest ticket numbers, & will get the best seats. Cool pic razspazz. You can only just make out the area dividing the different GA areas. Here's another one. I hope the area separating the GA sections is a little further back this time.
  15. Ticket drop for Adelaide. RZ, Cat 4 & 5. Only Cat 4 left now I think.
