Looking at this configuration in Berlin, it seems like people can't walk between the "north side" and "south side" via the back of the e-stage. Yes? No? I liked the freedom to walk around the back at the shows this past spring/summer.

So glad that Cologne will happen.

As I am taking my daughter to her first U2 concert: where is the best place to stand (we stand inside, left side) to give her the "full experience" and a good view on the band "in person"?

Reminds me dark hours of the LoveTown tour, when Bono lost his voice in Dortmund and then shows in Holland were postponed. Hoping the best for Bono and the band. We love you.

In fact he lost his voice during the first Amsterdam gig on that tour Joker. They played a short gig while Bono was coughing and was in real pain, luckily the audience took over most of the singing parts. The next two gigs in Amsterdam where cancelled and we were told to keep our tickets and after a few days they arranged four extra nights in Rotterdam in January 1990. We were really lucky that they arranged this, because BB King and band were supposed to play some gigs in the US, but they managed to squeeze these extra nights in. 

We had to send the tickets back by mail and fill in some form telling the concert promoter if we wanted a new ticket or a refund. All that wanted a new ticket had to wait for a lottery because the four nights in Rotterdam had less available tickets, so some of us got a ticket and some got a refund. I was really lucky, had tickets for all Amsterdam nights and got three tickets for Rotterdam. In fact the last night in Rotterdam turned out to be quite an special night with lots of surprises and a huge party on stage and off stage. 

So the famous New Years' Day concert in Dublin wasn't the latest of the tour, that turned out to be Rotterdam January 10th, if you can listen to it.

During I+E in 2015 we were about halfway down the catwalk on the second row from the rail. Wonderful view of both main and e-stage. Bono stoppen right in front of us a couple of times. 

Have a great time durig the show. We took our boys to their very first concert last year in Paris and it was amazing. They were 9 and 11 at that time and they had never before been to any other concert ... what better as first concert experience than U2! ?

Another option is to stand right in front of the Red Zone, so no one is pushing in your back and if you're lucky the people inside the Red Zone can provide you with drinks ? The view at the stage and the screen is much better then being on the rail somewhere between both stages.

Thank you all for your tipps - as I really like the visuals, I think the view on the e-stage is very important for me, too. Could you please explain, where exactly the Red Zone is then (maybe with the help of the photo from sped, eight postings above)???
