  1. why not Wembley in London - that weekend is free, but they're playing Twickers, which sucks to get back from after a concert - and surely these days it won't take more than 3 days to break down Adele's stage from the 1st July...
  2. it's not down to the band, it's LiveNation and logistics....is the Bernebau busy those dates, or clearing up from an event, or preparing for an event the following days? I remember seeing them in Barcelona and San Sebastien in 2005 for The Vertigo tour...that was a strange combination in addition to Madrid...

  4. Wembley Arena 2nd June Wembley Stadium 11-12 June Dublin Croke Park 27 June 1987 (met Bono at his Martello Tower home in dun laoghaire in the morning, and failed to tell him it was my 19th birthday), some bloke climbed up on the stadium roof...
  5. so as I have paid £290 for a Gold Ticket at Twickenham, and this is close to the Red Zone cost, what have I paid for? Will I be greeted by the band? Is the ticket gold like Charlie and The Chocolate Factory? What?
  6. I was there, and I think that was the one that Bono climbed up the speaker stack - one of the last times he did it...
  7. it'll very likely be announced within a week or two, same as all the other tours since 1987 .... To my knowledge no major U2 tour has missed Scotland (whether Edinburgh Murrayfield or Glasgow Ibrox) since the early 1980's ... of course, forgetting the stunning LoveTown tour just as strange is how often Australia/NZ get left off major tours, but who cares about them kangaroos anyway
  8. very straightforward foreign exchange calculation used by LiveNation and TicketMaster ]start at €35.00 / £35.00 / $35.00 with general admission floor tickets at €70.00 / £70.00 / $70.00. so just take the price in one curency, and swap out the symbol....never mind all that divisio n and complicated multiplication and all that rubbish about forex markets and exchanges...
  9. Here's my JTT story: I went on a coach tour to Dun laoghaire and stayed in a hotel there before the Saturday night Croke Park concert... In the morning, went to Bono's house (that martello Tower), waled up to the door, and yes, he was in... So I had a little back and forth with one of his family members (you know the type of thing I was at Milton Keynes The Longest Day in June 1985, and Bono said Next time you're in Dublin, you can ask for me, and I'm in Dublin, AND I'M ASKING FOR BONO (I should mention that I was just turned 18, and shouldn't have been let out of the house yet) and yes, Bono came out and said hi, but I was so scared I couldn't tell him it was my birthday ....the gig was great tho the Joshua Tree Tour was chronicled on ITV's World In Action weekly news magazine here in the UK... it's on YouTube...
  10. as in previous tours, there is every chance that either Edinburgh or Glasgow will be added... It's been a rare tour in the last 30 years when they haven't travelled to Wales and Scotland along with England.... so wait a week or two while they argue with TM and Live nation about where they can pitch their tents (will it beEdinburgh Murryfield stadium this time or Glasgow Ibrox?) Additionally, if you don't want to risk waiting, and potentially missing out on the London pre-sale, last year they allowed Zoo members to swap tickets around on the site... but who knows, maybe this year Live Nation will send us all our tickets directly to our brain stems...
  11. on past experience (U2360) you can expect some cheap tickets up in the nose-bleed sections (as they are apparently called) for less than $50 USD, plus cheapish tickets for standing on the pitch (if you wanna queue the night before you can be at the front) plus some expensive tickets like Red Zone in the several hundred dollars range
  12. for me it's got to be Barcelona again (saw the Vertigo Tour there 2005) plus hopefully Brussels or Paris where I also saw them...I wouldn't bother with Twickenham again or Rome seeing as it's impossible to get back to the city center following a late noght gig at those stadiums... Unfortunately, cannot use the Pre-Sale code as won't get paid in time ... So will maybe have to buy my tickets off ebay like everyone else that TM screws on Wednesday
  13. I saw London 3 and 4, and loved them so much I bought a ticket for Monday (didn't hiurt that it was Row J in Block 111 for face value on the AXS website) ... I agree about Zoo TV being the best tour ever by an band, but this is way better than the 360 Tour in my view...for me this is the best they've been since the Zoo TV Tour. BTW, Zoo TV Tour was very heavily scripted, because of the technology, they hardly changed the songs in each leg of the tour...whereas on this tour it does make sense to see 2 shows back to back to see more songs...
  14. this evening I will probably put it up on Viagogo for the face value plus their fees, so £74...
  15. I also have a spare one for London 5, 2nd Nov, please PM me
