I just spoke to Ticketmaster. they are handling the Perth and Melbourne shows. They tell me that Perth 2nd concert tickets are moving slowly and still quite a few left. a 3rd perth concert is highly unlikely coz Sunday is not selling as fast as the first show.

 

They also told me that Melbourne is totally sold out, but perhaps the reason for the other cities not getting a 2nd show might have something to do with the amount of time it takes to deconstruct+move+reconstruct the stage from venue to venue. there just isn't enough time to add extra shows in between a schedule that is already tight, but perth on the other hand is the last show of the leg so thats why they were able to add another show at the end without having to pack up and be someplace else by a certain time. Dunno if that is all true, but it sorta makes sense. Please don't flame me!! That is just what ticketmaster told me.

Ticketmaster website is still allowing me to buy a ticket so i dont think it is sold yet. I strongly doubt that they will NOT put on at least another show for Melbourne and Sydney. They have 2 stages which they revolve around them so they can handle the amount of dates they do. Vertigo tour there was 2 shows in Melbourne and 3 shows in Sydney. If they dont put on more shows here then that will be very unusal and there will be alot of unhappy people. Seriously though cmon its the biggest band in the world how can they not put on more shows?!

eek.gifIts True, I just got tickets for the Auckland Concert (which i understand is now sold out) and i would say there are fans who missed out on tickets who will be hanging out to see it they are going to anounce a second concert but with the Melbourne gig being a week after the Auckland gig there is hope.

The Gig is so huge that it takes a long time to pull down and put up, i did hear that there are two lots of gear so while the band are doing one show there is another team setting up for the next show. 

 

Enjoy the concert all who get to go

 

Regards The Anvil

When 1st concerts are early in the week I think a lot of people don't buy waiting for extra concerts to be announced on later days.

I'm seeing Pretenders / Blondie on Dec 1 so I'm eagerley awaiting a 2nd Melb U2 show. Please announce today. I'm away from computers all weekend.

I wish I had just waited till this sale to get tix as was very easy and very smooth (and I ended up with better seats than the presale).
Yeah a number of times when I have tried today P2 seats came up in 107-1 which is 3 blocks closer than the 110-1 seats I gor in rhe pre-sale.

 

The majority of the time they weren't as good as mine, but there was a peiod about 1 1/2 hours ino the sale when it consistently came up with seats somewhere in block 107-1 I casn only imagine that they were marked for promotional use or something and then got released or possibly were P1 seats that got rezoned because they were having a hard time selling P1 ??

 

Ah well.

 

Interesting to see that the cheaps seats behind the stage did not sell out quickly like everyone was predicting.
