My experience with the pre-sale was smooth too.

 

This show in the 'Burgh, in addition to being very enjoyable, will be poignant and bittersweet as well. Back in 2005, due to a strange combination of circumstances, I ended going to the Vertigo show at Mellon Arena with my Mom(!). (I had an unexpected extra ticket, and she was back visiting in PA at the time - and she was always a major-league fan of Bono. :) So, we went to the show, and she talked about it glowingly for the rest of her days (we were fortunate enough to get inside the ellipse in front of the stage as well - the only time on the tour I got inside the ellipse (I had attended 5 other shows in the GA area)).

 

Sadly, she passed away from leukemia this past October, just days before the 11th anniversary of the Mellon Arena show...had she survived, we certainly would have gone together again - she was always a big fan of JT. Believe it or not, I talked about this show in detail when I eulogized her. When I heard this tour was happening, I wasn't going to miss it. There are shows closer to home for me, but I will make the longer trip to attend this one as a tribute to her. Requiescat in pace mea cara mater.

Sorry for your loss... this will be a special one !

 

Thank you very much for your kind words.

 

This show - just as the show in 2005 was - will indeed be a special one! :)

 

 

Surely there must be others who are going to this show too who used the pre-sales - did everything go well for everyone?

I got two RZ tix on first minute of Pre-Sale with no issues.  I've been checking TM since and there still seems to be plenty of tix for Pgh Heinz Field while Cleveland not much.  Most likely because of the day (Pgh -Weds and Cleve-Sat) and Cleveland is the last date on the US Leg.  I am holding that Cleveland will get a second night (e.g. Sunday July 2) before they head to Europe a week later.  Can't see Pgh getting a second date for multiple reasons: 1) Will one Pgh concert even sell out? 2) Date follows Chicago too closely 3) Bonnaroo follows right after Pgh

Got 2 GA in the general sale in 2 min on Tuesday morning. (used my Presale code for other shows) This show is by far the worst selling of all shows, not just in North America. GA's still available. 

 

Yes, I've heard that from others too. I think the fact that the show is on a Wednesday is the most likely culprit for the slow sales. I bet the sales will pick up when the show is closer to happening.

 

I just hope that the Pirates don't have a home game on the same night - that would create a disaster for finding parking...
