just did some math for those of you interested... these are the contest tickets by the numbers so far:

1 pair = Grand Prize

25 pairs = U2.com song request 

16 pairs = AOH 10th caller promo (they played it at 6:45am EST yesterday and again in the afternoon, so they are playing 2 times/day) (ends June 8th)

25 pairs = Facebook/Twitter photo contest, ends 5pm today (not sure if eastern or pacific time zone)

These equal 134 tickets, which is less than 10% of the total tickets available (1500). Maybe there will be another 25 pair contest tomorrow (eternal optimist). Maybe they'll get up to 500 for actual fans (super eternal optimist). 

Congrats to all who have won! Best of Luck to the rest of us!

I will say, this channel makes me want to go back and listen to NLOTH again - at the time I was not a huge fan of that album and only spun it a handful of times then sort of walked. I've always been a big fan of Magnificent but that was mostly it - going to give it another shot.

There are a lot of us here who feel that NLOTH was grossly underrated when it was new and during the intervening years as well. Personally, I love it and have always loved it, and am a bit disappointed that the band seems to have stepped back from it as well. I loved the NLOTH songs live on the U2360 tour. However, if the channel has inspired you to revisit it, well done SiriusXM! ?

 

OK-  back to normal Apollo-oriented business... ?

NLOTH and Innocence are the only tours I've missed since seeing them starting back with WAR tour.

Skipped NLOTH because I thought the cd was meh, Innocence because we were busy with kids/having kids.

The NLOTH aged well, I like them better now

All I know is that I can't wait for this show - from the sounds of it, not a ton of winners/fans will make it in (unless more contests come down the pipeline) so I feel super stoked to be able to go. My flight/hotel are booked so it's really real.

5:56pm ETS, the first call goes through to a message about Cisco system can't take messages
Next attempts just saying calling.....

Little effort being made on Sirius's end.

We got the final confirmation email as well - I re-read it 10 times! :) At least a few of us here are getting in!

So I did an online chat with Sirius to say the number goes through to a Cisco message.  They tell me contest ended on 6/4. I tell them this is for a different contest a dial-in one for tickets and no transport. They act confused and are useless.  I'm done listening for 8 -12 hours a day.  Might even be done with subscription at this point

Same issue here.  I wish it at least gave a busy signal.  

I’m losing hope of getting into this show.
