Vancouver presale - Should've lowered my expectations

Recommended Posts

Disappointed here too - in the Red Hill Group shut out of GA.  Tried from start for 2 hours & neither apps nor website worked. Cleared caches, tried different browsers too - It'd accept my code but not allow GA purchase.  Will try again tomorrow. :(

After solving the stupid TM locked out issue, I found plenty of choices so persevere when your turn comes tomorrow.

 

Yes, the I+E DVD is pretty cool but nothing beats the emotion of being there and this time we will (may?) hear JT in full. I've never travelled to see the band before but I'm coming all the way from Sydney just to see this, my 10th show. After the number of music icons we lost in 2016, you never know if this could be their last tour or (being a similar age to the guys) my last chance to see them.

Meh. Like I said I'll lower my expectations for my turn tomorrow.

 

I guess I really shouldn't complain. I'm fortunate to have seen them live on every tour, beginning with the Joshua Tree '87 Tour, right up to The I + e Tour. Most times were in my town! (Vancouver).

 

Gotta say the best was still ZOO TV April '92. The last night of first leg of the NA Tour. The show was simply revolutionary, and the sounds of the Joshua Tree being chopped down resounded in every "clang" of Larry's drums during "Zoo Station". They returned later that year with the larger more bombastic 'Outside Broadcast', but the intimacy of the first leg was never matched by them again...well, except maybe during the Elevation Tour at the Saddledome in Calgary (2001).  

 

Fingers crossed and dreaming out loud...

There's still seats in $70 range

I'm in the newbie 'Wires' group so I'm not allowed to access them until tomorrow.

 

I let my membership lapse for 2 months until I renewed so I'm a n00b.

HI Vancouver fans, I'm Wires so will get a chance tomorrow.

 

Can anyone tell me the price breakdown so I can plan ahead?

 

Lower bowl would be nice, but uppers would be fine too. 

 

Def going for a seat.  At 35 I'm too old now for the GA lines and crush.

 

Is the Vancouver show credit card ticketing only?  Is there a choice?

 

Thanks!

You can actually go onto Ticketmaster and see the prices for yourself.

 

They are $280, $155, $100, $70 and $35 CAD

any idea what the Vancouver red zone prices are? 

 

$280 I think. But they appear to be sold out.

 

Got my turn this morning.

 

2 seats in Section 254 for $70 each...which are actually $91.25 seats after 2 x $17.75 Service Fee, 2 x $3.50 Facility Charge and then a $5.50 Order Processing Fee. 

 

Found What I was Looking For...I guess.

 

When Edge fell off the stage on opening night of the I+e Tour here in Vancouver it cemented the feeling that U2 were veering closely to The Rolling Stones territory...almost sad to watch in how old they've become, thereby reminding me how old I've become. Thankfully, thanks to their showmanship that feeling went away the second night despite being seated behind the stage in fan club presale-bought seats. 

 

They've got one shot this time around. One night to bring me back to 1987. Please don't fek it up, Boys.

I don't think Edge falling off the stage was about his age. It seemed to me to be one of those first night screw ups.

Agreed.

 

Still made ME feel old AF, though
