I wish that would be the case this tour for tickets

To be able to split our ticket allocation for different venues would be heaven

 

When I think back to the hassle of the 360 tour and trying to arrange tickets for other venues it was murder

 

If anyone reading this has any influence in the manner which the ticket allocation is determined please allow Multi Venue Ordering

 

Please

 

PS Belfast, Wouldn't hold my breath

But if they do I'll be there

Thanks again Asterix, I really don't understand why there was one rule for some countries and another rule for others, hopefully they let us order for multiple venues, seems ridiculous to do otherwise to me. 

I'm in the Midlands, so I'm within easy reach of most places in the UK, I'm taking a guess that there will not be many in the UK but that it's likely that Wembley and Manchester will be up there (in my dreams they come play a very cosy gig at the Civic in Wolves, as if!!), so I'm really hoping that I can get Manchester simply because it's a bit easier to travel.

 

In theory I will do a date with my mum and swap the other 2 tickets for another date/venue which I will attend with my sister...that's the theory, so anyone who has is thinking they would like to do a Manchester gig and will have 2 surplus tix they would like to swap please keep me in mind, I'm happy with same venue different date (2 consecutive days with an overnight stop would be just awesome, a proper U2 holiday!), just getting my intentions out there  B)

 

Haha I had the same problem on 360, only I was the one carrying the baby, fortunately no more babies for me lol. I won't be going abroad, considered it, I'd love to, but it's just not really viable right now.

But hey, you never know, I may win the lottery in the meantime and I certainly hope so, due to a rather unfortunate accident of being born 20 years to late (87 sadly, auspicious only in that I happened to be born the day JT was unleashed on the world!) I missed ZooTV which I'd give my right arm to see and my parents could not afford to take me on Elevation) I have missed a lot and am determined that my addiction shall not go unsatisfied as recompense! :P

Wembley Rhi, see you there ;) . They did a live broadcast from Sheffield last time if memory serves, just a few days after Wembley. It was Willie's birthday! Anyone remember that?

 

How about the Ricoh stadium?! Did they do NIA last time, can't remember, don't think they did tho, maybe too small!!!

It depends how extensive this aspect of the tour will be they may just stay to key cities and tour more areas when they take it back outdoor.

 

Sorry for another Coldplay comparison but with their recent album they played it indoors and literally played London, Paris, New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo. (Rumour has it their about to release another album quickly and go back outdoors and tour again)

 

I don't think U2 would cut it that short but I'm not sure they'll play a lot of town and cities in each country initially, they'll save that for when they inevitably go outdoors.

Patience is the word. Until any official announcement of any new shows / tour, then all we have is speculation... and until we hear any different, we can't start organising thinks like ticket swaps,, it would end up being too confusing and only end up with a lot of disappointed people.

 

But the moment anything is announced on the main page of U2.com, and we know full details, then the facility to swap tickets (for face value) and make firm plans via a dedicated forum somewhere in the Zoo, will be put in place.

Is it just me but.........

 

If I was U2 this would now be the time to sell tickets.

 

They are doing a massive job of promoting the album and getting interview and radio plays.

 

Almost everyone got the album whether they wanted it or not

Actual album sales are really good

 

In other words they are popular

 

Christmas around the corner, holiday season, feel good factor..........

 

Announce tour

 

That would be my business plan

 

Disagree. We should have at least a month's notice of the official dates before they go on sale since it will alter some people's lives for a year or more, maybe. It's also the right thing to do.

Hi Sigma957, my quote button is broken but here is my take and reply to your post

I don't see what there is to disagree with

 

 

In Europe and UK, U2 are very much getting a lot of airplay and media attention. In most interviews the forthcoming tour is mentioned but U2 band members are playing their cards close to their chest

My view, from a business perspective, would be to sell while the interest is there

Most, if not all bands announce a new tour to coincide with the release of their new album

The album is now out so the tour will be announced shortly

I see the tour being announced in November

******* ( MY PREDICTION)********

 

When U2 announced the 360 tour, the tickets went on sale shortly after. I believe the same happened on the Vertigo tour.

If I remember right, there were a few posts of people complaining of having to subscribe and pay out £40 the week before they could buy their 4 tickets for the 360 tour.

 

I agree its nice to know in advance when the tickets are going on sale, and to be able to put by a few £'s or $'s to budget for buying tickets, but, my observations and comments were based on the usual practice.

Ticket promoters love to advertise and sell tickets early for tours

The money, as you know, sits in a large bank account, gaining interest for months, which neither the band nor the venues gets access to.

Sell tickets early and maximise  your profits

 

Again these are my observations

Tickets always go on sale within days of the announcements to catch people in the excitement and panic.

 

If they announced the dates and then put the tickets on sale a month later it gives people too much time to think about it and the cost. Its common practice these days with bands.

 

Noel Gallagher recently announced a tour here in the UK and tickets went on pre sale 2 days later I bought two tickets for £77.00 each in a panic, If I had chance to think about it for a few weeks I probably wouldn't have paid that much and given it a miss as its close to christmas and in hindsight I think thats expensive.

 

U2 had 7,000,000 tickets sold on the 360 tour, out of that number a tiny ammount will actually be the "hardcore" fans from this website etc. Their big market is getting those going for the first time or tempting your normal fans who own the Joshua Tree and thats about it to go again.
