Red Zone/VIP

Recommended Posts

They'll probably drop that info at the last minute. If it doesn't show up on Ticketmaster, check the u2.com tour page. I'm on the lookout for RED zone info myself.

What's driving me nuts is that some of the shows have the VIP packages detailed with prices, etc.  Some even have the RED Zone tickets up as a separate item - but these are all at places I won't be able to see them.  The two places I have a shot at seeing them, details are sparse.

 

I'm ready to get a RZ ticket (or even a VIP that includes a RZ ticket), but nothing's up for the show I want.  I don't know if I should grab a GA ticket just to know I have one, then spring for a RZ if it happens to pop up a day or two later?

That's what I'll do if I don't see any RED zone info or buying options. Get a GA & then a RED zone when it's available. It's pretty easy to get rid of a GA if you don't end up needing it.

This is a tour/show I think would be easy to get rid of the GA if it came to that.  We got burnt during the i+E tour in Chicago because of the stage flip problem (details came out late, stage was misrepresented on the Ticketmaster site - ended up paying a ton of money for a ticket behind the stage) - so we wound up buying two sets of tickets, with one we couldn't get rid of (we didn't want to be behind the stage in "limited view" at my son's first concert - and, apparently, no one else did either - couldn't get rid of them).

 

Anyway - that was a special situation.  Most other times, tickets to a U2 show haven't been a problem.  I just wish my plans were taking me to Ireland instead of London so I would know for sure that a RZ ticket is available now (not to mention how cool it would be to see them in Ireland)  :)

Hey guys, new to the forum. Any word about the RZ tickets and the presale?

I don't see them listed on TM for Vancouver, but they're on the map. Would be great to know if I need to look for them at 9am or not bother and just go for GA.

zuma022, you will likely see RZ ticket option once the sale goes live on Wednesday.  The great thing about RZ is you are guaranteed stage side standing, without a whole lot of pushing and shoving, and you can show up just before the show begins.  But they'll likely be priced at >$400 Cdn.  f you can line up at 6 am, you can do just as well with GA and save a fortune.  If not, RZ gets you the position without waiting all day.

For those thinking of buying GA and then reselling it if you later decide to go "VIP" or RZ, keep in mind that is far more difficult this time around as many of the venues (at least in the U.S.) will be using CREDIT CARD ENTRY for GA tickets and will NOT be issuing hard tickets.  That's a big change this time around.....

Thanks Bill. I'll be returning from a trip that day, so earliest I can be at the stadium will be about 6pm. That's why I'm considering RZ. But with the tall stadium stage, I may be alright further back in GA. Decisions! Sure would be easier to have the pricing now

Oh, I forgot about that... dang. Guess I'm holding out for RED zone then.
