  1. Mods - Massive thanks for your help and super quick responses! You guys are amazing!
  2. Wow! That was easy! Has TM stepped up their game or is it just because this is a stadium show rather than arena? 4 GA Toronto
  3. The U2.com/tour page ticket link takes Canadian customers to the .com rather than .ca TM site. When choosing a Canadian show.
  4. Noticed on TM that the Fan Club VIP Access is open at the same time as the Redhill group (January 11 @9am). Mods, any idea what this is? Cheers
  5. Love that they switched up Bullet the Blue Sky so it isn't after Every Breaking Wave! Nice changes tonight
  6. Attended both nights. Incredible! Toronto1 we were at the main stage and Toronto2 we were on the rail at the B stage. It feels like a completely different concert from each vantage point. The main stage is classic rock band U2 and the B stage is more of the intimate and emotional U2. I loved both experiences. We had our two teenage sons with us both nights. The older one is a rabid U2 fan and this was the first U2 concert experience for our younger son. They were both blown away! They couldn't believe how close the band is to the audience and how amazing the sound and screen are. They held up signs each night and Bono especially liked their "Young Not Dumb" signs during both shows and when he cruised up to the GA line and rolled his window down he mentioned to our son that he noticed the signs. Pretty cool! Toronto1 - Bad had me in tears, which I was not expecting. Brilliant performance and definitely a highlight for me. Toronto2 - All I Want is You pared down was perfect. They were supposed to do Crystal Ballroom after Angel of Harlem and before Every Breaking Wave at the B stage and then move to the main stage for AIWIY later on but there were technical difficulties so we got AIWIY with the female audience member accompanying at the B stage. She had actually said she'd prefer to play AIWIY when Bono asked her to do Angel of Harlem. Cheeky . I wanted to hear Crystal Ballroom and was really hoping for it in Toronto but I can't say I would have preferred it at the B stage over AIWIY. Crystal Ballroom needs to be glitzed up when they play it again. Drop those disco balls on the catwalk and drop the disco beat as Bono dances from one stage to the other... I'd love to see it that way! Montreal3 - I was on stage for the U2 "party" Toronto1 - Bad had me in tears and also the thrill of watching the awe on my younger son's face as he experienced U2 for the first time Toronto2 - AIWIY and then Shine Like Stars during WOWY were phenomenal Each concert was a different experience and filled my cup to overflowing. Wow!
  7. I believe the song you are looking for is - Same Love by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Mary Lambert
  8. Gate 2 Toronto2 GA line was started after the Toronto1 concert so the earlier you go in the morning the better. Check-in at 9am and then stay for the day. See you there!
  9. From the Ticketmaster site... Ticket Limits There is a 2 ticket limit for all password-protected presales and membership bundles, a 4 ticket limit for VIP Packages during the presale period after December 5th at 3PM, a 4 ticket limit during the first day of the onsale, and no limit thereafter.
  10. a GA drop for July 7 happening right now... if you are still awake!

  13. The GA line has already started. Might want to head down there to get your number. The venue will be issuing wristbands. Good luck! Thanks! Got numbered. Do you know if the venue checks the id and cc when the wristbands are issued or will it just be scanned cc right before entering. Seems smoother to do the check with the wristbands.
  14. Do you know if they are doing a check-in type line or a stay-in-your-spot-until-the-doors-open type of line?
  15. Are you serious? You saw U2 signs for the GA line?
  16. Thanks for this detailed post, Joe! Brilliant! Anybody have a heads up on the GA line for Toronto? Time? Rules? etc Cheers!
  17. Any plans in the works for the GA line in TO? If so, any idea when it will start for the 1st night?
  18. For Montreal3 they opened up the official RZ line up area (with velvet ropes, a sign and a table! ) at about 5 or 5:30 pm. My husband and I arrived at the Bell Centre (venue) at about 2:45pm from Toronto as traffic was a lot better than we had anticipated. Instead of hanging around downtown for a few hours we decided to check out the RZ entrance. There was already a fan in line so we stayed and became numbers 2 and 3. The security guard laughed at how early we were and the ietour lady (Emma? - in charge of RZ) commented at about 4pm that we were waay early for RZ! Several RZ-ers came by and checked it out but nobody else lined up until just after 4pm-ish. After that time the line steadily increased though by 5:15pm when they started the RZ check-in the line was still pretty short (about 40 people?). Once you check-in using your ID you are handed hard copy tickets as well as souvenir tickets, your wristbands (one for GA and one for RZ), and an entry to the backstage tour draw. At that point the line up was split into North side and South side. The lady in front of us was South (Edge) side so my husband and I became first and second for North (Adam). We were let into a holding area just outside the seats at about 5:50pm and held there until about 6. We had to descend a bunch of stairs and GA-ers stampeded across the length of the floor. It looked like were were let in around the same time. We had contemplated going into the GA section but the RZ-ers have to run/walk to the bottom of the RZ barricade and then back up the floor area to the main stage (if you want a spot on the rail there). A few tried to hop the rail and were swiftly stopped by the security. We opted to stay in the RZ and go right to the edge where the GA and RZ rails meet at the main stage. The GAers were fast and I'm pretty sure we would've been shut out of a rail at the main stage had we gambled with the GA area. Likely we would have had a rail spot at the B stage but we are saving that for Toronto. The concert was incredible and I loved my first RZ experience! Bono repeated the last couple of lyrics of Iris right in front of us and it was intensely beautiful. Adam spent a lot of time in front of us as well. I did end up on stage during Streets and I was beside Bono for Still Haven't Found. THAT was surreal and nothing will top it! Hope you have a great experience in RZ. I think it is very well organized and you will definitely enjoy your proximity to the action as well as your view of the screen.

  21. RZ Montreal says sold out on the regular ticket page and it said sold out in the Presale but that is because it isn't available for purchase on the regular ticket page. So crazy! On the first U2 concert page scroll past the yellow ticket tab to the RZ tab (below the VIP tabs) and click to buy from there. Weirdest set up I've ever seen. Good luck to all that can grab them before everyone figures this out. Cheers!
