iT'S OFFICIAL U2 + DOWN UNDER (UPDATED 8/30/2010 6 pm PST)

Jedi77']I've just managed to reserve seats in Aisle 23, level 2 at Etihad stadium for my pregnant wife and I through the Medallion club (i'm a member). Looking at the seating plan it seems we will be quite far away since the claw is not centered, but I'm hoping this allows us to take in the whole show as well
:)
Has anyone here done the stadium seating at a 360 concert before?? and what did they think of it?? My mate and I have already decided that if there is a 2nd show in Melb (hopefully there will be), we will be doing GA like we did at Popmart and Vertigo. The wives will just have to stay at home
:)

I saw the Rose Bowl show last year.. My seats were face on to the stage but up the back.. Pretty much similar to your seats... It was great.. The show its self is awesome and you get to see the whole light show and how the stage works etc... 

 

And to the people whinging about $$$.. Be lucky that U2 give you the option of seeing them for under $100... Most bands of their popularity do not! Unless you are like me and others and need to be down the front, you will see a friggin awesome show regardless of what you pay and where you sit!

Ding Ding!!!!

 

You win the prize for awesomeness.......

 

Seriously peeps, don't be whinging dickheads.

 

This show wasn't even coming here, now it is, and there is some very affordable tickets on offer.

Buy the ones that you can afford.  Turn up. Have a few beers. Dance, sing and a have the time of your life.

 

Pretty. Feckin. Simple.

Geez, you dont even have ANY info and you all are already complaining

tsk tsk

 

The sales are staggered, with windows of 2-4 hrs per level with a total of 5 levels. If you miss your window, you can buy at ANYTIME during the presale, but you cannot buy before your level starts.

Hope this helps

 

It does help, thank you.

Sorry to throw a spanner in the works but it looks like there ISN'T a staggered sale this time around. From the updated official FAQ:

All subscribers with a valid subscription and presale code before
[/font]
 Sun. 22 Aug. 7AM NZ / 5AM AU
[/font]
 
[/font]
have access on Day 1 of the presale,
[/font]
Thursday August 26th. All those with subscriptions taken out from after this time ('Cedars' Subscribers) will have access to the presale from 1pm on Monday 30th August

 

 

Yes but the next question has the following note:

 

"Please note: 'Horizon', 'Breathe', 'Boots' and 'Magnificent' subscribers retain their place in different presale priority groups for any future relevant presales. We do not change your subscription category. No exceptions will be made. The exact times for access will be emailed to you and made available on the tour page of U2.com when you sign in.Please note: 'Horizon', 'Breathe', 'Boots' and 'Magnificent' subscribers retain their place in different presale priority groups for any future relevant presales.

Which seems to imply there will be different times for each groupClear as mud...

All tickets are only available through them so it does not mean much.

 sorry but i dont quite get what you mean. could you clarify please?

Your pre-sale code will direct you to the ticketmaster site who are the only people selling the tickets (I'm excluding radio stations and the likes). So that's what I mean that all tickets are only available through them (GA, seats and Red Zone) so at this time it's impossible to know if the Red Zone tickets will be available or not during the pre-sale.

 

Hope that's clear (?)

can't see the seating layout in nz yet either but did notice that the red zones are on either side of the stage on the outside of the walkway. So who are the people in the very inner circle and how do you get there?

GA tickets, first come first served.

Thanks for that. I am hoping to bring my 11 year old, so the GA is a no no really for her sake. Don't know whether to go for best/most expensive seats or the red zone. I grew up with U2 but this will be my first time seeing them live. Any advice?
