U2 Tour 2019 Annoucement Live Thread

If there are two shows in a city, we always opt to do both. Years ago when U2 played in my hometown, we went to the first show but weren’t able to do the second night. The first night was so incredible we were kicking ourselves that we weren’t able to go the next night. Ever since, we try to hit both nights if time and finances allow. U2 always leaves me wanting more. 

In the past, most of the concerts are generally the same set list but sometimes they’ll rotate a song or two that’s different. But expect the same graphics, set list, etc for the most part.  Personally I treasure every show, from the people I meet to the actual performance. If you can swing two nights, you probably wouldn’t regret it. We’re crossing our fingers for a second concert in Seoul!

Absolutely do both! I'm planning doing both nights in both Akl and Syd, and did both nights in 2017 in LA. Especially if you are travelling all that way. You can always mix it up, one night GA, next RZ or seated. I very much doubt youll regret it!

Great! Thank you both very much! I`m sure, you are absolutely right! :)One more question: I wonder if I should do both nights in GA. I have the feeling, that the best place on this tour is right at the "Tree-stage". In all other places (including the seats), you don`t have such a free and centre sight to the screen like you have at the "Tree-stage". Am I right? I hope, that it is early enough, if I am at the stadium at 12:00 :)

Were you able to enter general  GA area as well with RZ as on 360 Tour?

Yes but I’m not sure why you would....The entrance to the red zone is within the GA-you basically just go into the GA instead of going through the barrier into the red zone. But.......with a jam packed GA you aren’t going to be able to ‘wander’ round the front of the tree or anything.  It’s not like the arenas.  People behind the barrier of the RZ have been there all day and it’s like sardines.  in my opinion it would be a real struggle to go anywhere else apart from to the bar! My experience of red zone has been just as thrilling as GA in terms of atmosphere.  It’s true, that some people are just chilling out around the back of the red zone etc but most definitely I have experienced that it is quite riotous around the barriers next to the tree.

Could anyone give me an advice? :) Is it worthwile to visit two concerts of this tour on two consecutive days? Or does it feel like a dejavu? I`ve seen the JT Tour 2017 in Berlin and now I want to fulfill my lifelong dream to see U2 in Auckland. I`ve got a GA-ticket for the concert on November, 8th and I will come the long way from Germany, to see U2 and travel New Zealand for two weeks. Now I wonder, if I should buy a ticket for November, 9th, too. So I`m faced with the choice to leave Auckland for my trip on November, 9th or to stay one night longer and to attend the second concert, too...

Well if you’ve already seen it then you know its pretty much the same show but i would have to go back for more on night 2 for sure.  Who knows how long they’ll carry on touring for.

4 tix per presale

Thanks @bigwave.  I’ve noted @mich40 has answered a similar question in the opposite so I’m still uncertain 🤷🏻‍♀️ My code doesn’t have a line but I definitely used it 4 times, and don’t want to risk having tix cancelled.

Maybe I’m old, but doing GA two nights in a row can be a lot. We like to stand in line for GA for a fair bit on the day of the concert in order to get closer to the front, not necessarily rail but closer to the stage. Plus we enjoy just hanging out in line getting to know other fans from all over the world so we like the waiting in line thing. We often do both nights GA just because we usually are traveling from farther away and GA is more affordable and RZ are often hard to get. Seems that may be different for this tour.  Back to back standing in line for GA can be exhausting, so maybe you stand in line longer for one concert to be closer to the front and one night you arrive closer to show time and take in things further back. If you’ve never done RZ, maybe this is when you want to go for it.

I did both shows in 2017 at rose bowl, both GA as couldn’t get RZ (would have preferred doing one RZ one GA). I lined up first day from 9am and was on the rail. Second day i was a bit slower and got there mid morning and was about 6 rows back. Have to admit first night was better and was definitely worth the extra hours in line to be rail. I’m short and there were lots of cheeky people trying to push in front, so view quite impeded.

i was left front of tree stage and perfect spot I thought. Lots of close up with the Band and still great view to main stage. RZ is more to the left and would still be good but you’d get slightly more side angle most of the time rather than front on. Hence I’m doing a mix of both GA and RZ this time.

Seats always an option but personally I prefer being amongst it. Very large venues and you’d be reliant on the screen, as band would be like ants!

Same x 1 million. It’s the hanging about all day with people of a similar mindset (U2 fans after all, are the best 😊) then enjoying the show together that make it awesome

Sorry? I told someone they could use their credit card to get addition tickets in the public sale and told another person that if they had already purchased 4 tickets during the presale, they had reached their allotment, that no new codes would be issued. Not sure why your code doesn’t have a line through it if you have purchased 4 tickets for the upcoming shows; but 4 tickets is the limit. 

From the FAQs:

Q - How Many Tickets can I buy? What is the ticket limit?

A - As a paid-up U2.com Subscriber you are eligible to purchase up to FOUR (4) tickets for any show or combination of shows (for example you can purchase 2 tickets for a show in Brisbane and 2 tickets for a show in Adelaide, or 1 ticket for Brisbane, 1 ticket for Adelaide, 1 ticket for Melbourne and 1 ticket for Sydney.) All ticketing presale code use is audited, and anyone found to be abusing presale privileges risks cancellation of ticket purchases and U2.com subscription.
