Hi,

I'm also wondering why second level seats are more expensive than the first level ones. Are they really better ?

Thank you.

Normally I'd say no, second level seats are not better than first level seats. First level seats are closer, & importantly should have less obstructions from the delay (speaker) towers. As you can see in the below image, the lower level seats may have some obstruction from the trusses (steel frames) of the delay towers. While the higher level seats may be obstructed by the actual speaker stacks, which are wider than the trusses, & totally opaque.

However, DY Patil, & the other cricket ground used this tour, are a bit different. The lower level (concourse) has very low sloping tiers, with the front row often right at ground level. So the second level is likely to still have views below the speaker stacks. Though of course it'll still be further away than the lower level.

The low angle of the sloping tiers of the lower level concourse may create a couple of problems for people sitting in the lower level too. The front row could be down at ground level, so may have trouble seeing over the GA crowd. So I wouldn't sit in the first couple of rows of the lower level. Also that low angle slope may make it tough to see, if you have a particularly tall person seated in front of you?

The other possible obstruction for the lower level is the sound/video booth(s). As you can see in the top image, in 2017 there was a single, centrally located sound/video booth, which was two storeys high. This could obstruct centrally located seats on the lower level.

However, I believe the layout will be different this time around. Looking at the Ticketmaster seat map for Optus stadium, Perth, it looks like there will be TWO sound/video booths this time! They won't be centrally located, & I'm presuming these will only be single storey.

So for the lower level I'd recommend being very central (bit this is expensive VIP for Mumbai), or reasonably far around the sides. So you're not obstructed by the sound/video booths. Although these cricket ground are very wide, much wider than the football fields of Europe & the USA.

If I could pick anywhere, it's be front GA. But if I was picking seats I think I'd be picking the lower level (level 1), in Block M. As this Edge's side,& the side the b-stage is on. Hoping I'd bit be obstructed by one of the wider delay towers. Next choice would the opposite block, Block D , on Adam's side. Followed by blocks N or C, which may have a bit of an instruction from a delay tower. I'd be wary of getting seats in the lower level in blocks A, B, P or I, as these may be obstructed by the sound/video booths, or delay towers.

Note: this is all a bit of guess work, as nobody knows the exact layout. Plus I've never been to this venue.

Help. Everything went smoothly until I read my pickup instructions: I'm supposed to pick up the ticket at the stadium between September 24 and November 15. I won't be in the country until the day before the show, Suggestions on what I should do? Thanks

Please check the revised procedure on https://www.u2.com/help

As for the price difference, can't help you on that... no idea if it's better - but the chart may be of help for you to make an informed decision on which seat works for you...

Thank you very much.

Now I have a ticket but there is no option for delivery outside India. Just home delivery..

I'm in panic so maybe I can't see something evident...

Omg !
