Considering GA for first time - would love some input (:

Recommended Posts

I have been to several U2 concerts but never in general admission.  I have a couple questions I would love help with...

Price - usually what is price for GA - my venue lists prices from like $40 to $325 - any idea where GA would fall in there?

Availability - Does GA usually sell out?  Wondering if there is any benefit to doing presale if I am getting GA.

I think the stage set up lends itself to a great GA experience without having to get there hours and hours early to wait in line.

Thanks for any help and advice!!

I believe GA tickets are about $90. GA is the first to go most of the times. It's hard to say if doing the presale or not would increase your chances - I'd like to believe so. I agree about this tour - there is a lot of space around the stage/catwalk that increases the front row view :) chances without camping all day!

GA is typically under $100

I've purchased GA both during pre-sales and after the public on-sale with no problem.

It depends what you want out of the GA experience.  If you want to be close or on the "rail" you will need to be in line all day.  If you're okay hanging back but still having a good view then show up when the gates open.

GA's for arena shows go quick. The $40 tickets are upper corner nosebleeds. Years ago, the GA's were the cheapest. Now they run $80-$100. GA is definitely worth it. With this stage layout, you can do well without lining up all day, because they move between stages. Just work your way closer to the stage they have just left and you will get pretty close. You can have the RED zone experience with more crowding and no bar on the floor.

In my opinion, GA is the only way to go. They are affordable at $80 and the best way to experience U2... especially with this stage setup. Unless you want to spend $325 get the same show, with the privilege of sitting.  :) And with an arena size venue, if you're on the floor, you're not far from stage wherever you are!

And yes, for GA I would highly recommend the pre-sale. Most of us real fans want the GA experience!

Hope this helps.

Take a look at Joe's Guide, it might help you decide, it was a huge help for us and he updates it for each tour:

We did GA the first time on the 360 tour and we loved it, we cant think of seeing U2 any other way now! 

If you've never done it, go for it!! 

I always buy GA tix during the presale, personally I wouldn't take my chances with the public sale.  GA tix sell out quickly.

Thank you so much to everyone for all the input!!   I think I'm gonna go for it. I think it will be way different than the reserved seating route and I'm looking forward to experiencing it.  (Experiencing... Lol)

I started trying to buy two GA tickets today about 15 minutes after the Innocence Presale started. I've been trying all day but haven't had any luck. The site says there are no GA tickets available. Some people say to keep trying because they hold back some GA tickets for each wave of the presales and the public sale. I am hoping to get some! Tomorrow the Citi Presale starts at 9:00am. I will start trying again in the morning before that. Good luck!
