basher1

If u2 had an ounce of decency.

please guys, how can you get this angry and agressive towards someone you never met, so you have absolutely no idea what kind of person they really are? maybe you got off from a bad start cause one or both of you was having a bad day? but insulting eachother online like this wont solve anything, it wont gain you anything either.
i don understand how it got to this, simply cause a fan expressed his feeling bout wanting the tour to end in ireland/uk, like lots of us in here? no crime in that, is there??
very easily Barbara when someone comes onto a thread and mouths off about Bono said this or that it pisses me off these folk are the ones i despise out of the u2 mob because they think they know everything and know the band and all that shite.....and it really annoys me because they actually turn out to be non-entities of the highest order.

24 shows in Europe, 8 for all of GB and Ireland. I see bashers frustration. In a 1000 mile radius of travel, 12 shows could of been obtained by fans given their financial status which was not good for most common folk. Once again I see the frustration of all Europeans in not getting another leg. I'd like to thow in Bono's back injury in the mix as something to consider why there wasn't another leg scheduled, Perhaps it was considered before the injury? Food for thought.

Boston Lady1, it was not the bands fault for not playing in the second US leg. You can put forth all the blame on Robert Craft, owner of Gillette stadium as well as the Patriots. The deal was on his table and he chose NO! Why? Because the two shows before were NOT sellouts even though it was stated. If you took a look at the upper levels you would of seen what I say is true. He ate the tickets! Ticketbastard and LN sell the ticks for the venue, not u2. If you were in Krafts shoes, given what happened previously, you have to consider it was not a good choice from a business point of view.
Also, fans complaining about the exit being in one right direction for 70,000 fans while the band were the only ones to take a left was not right at all and this well deserved negativity was thrown in the mix for Kraft to decide. The ppl who live around the stadium have voiced their opinions and pressured the town to do something of late night concert goers going through their town. I have a friend who works in Gillette and has told me all of the above facts.But when it comes to Pats football, all of this is put forth to the wayside.

Now, if you take a 1000 mile radius of Mass, you would of been able to go to more shows than just Denvers opening night. I could of also, but only went to 2 this past leg, 4 overall this tour  But in these times and economy, priorities have to come into place and I'm good with those. The people that take a hiatus from real life and live the dream from show to show, fair play for them. Wish I could.

24 shows in Europe, 8 for all of GB and Ireland. I see bashers frustration. In a 1000 mile radius of travel, 16 shows could of been obtained by fans given their financial status which was not good for most common folk. Once again I see the frustration of all Europeans in not getting another leg. I'd like to thow in Bono's back injury is something to consider why there wasn't another leg.

Yeah...I know, I figured it was something with the owner of Gillette....I got over it, k...I was one of those that got that email asking if you would go back if U2 were to go back there and I saw alot of complaints on the set up of things. I wasn't one that was in that traffic jam/nightmare...I walked back to a shuttle bus area to go back to the Hotel I stayed at and I saw how they were making the traffic go...don't know why they did that though. But it did seem like Europe got some more shows on this last leg so I don't know why he's complaining...but like I said before...I'm sure when U2 are ready to call it quits and retire for good...they'll go out in a bang in Dublin. They're not quitting just yet,so...and they did say they are going back to Arenas the next tour and no Bono is not the only one who told me...

The next tour is going to be madness on getting tix. Less supply = more demand = insane prices. I know bono told a lot of fans the next tour is indoors as well as the stage crew telling fans. I'm already starting to save for it..NOW! lol
