  1. really surprised there was no Sunday Bloody Sunday, I never get tired of listening to this at the concerts and this is the first time I've not heard it
  2. they came on at 8.30 and finished around 10.40
  3. is there a support act, or is it U2 only also seems early for a U2 concert, how long are the show ? I'd have thought max 2 hours, therefore concert finishing around 10
  4. I got £38 tickets last time and this time. We had a fantastic view of the stage B, where the vast majority of the concert was being played BTW for the OP, the only downside of Dublin to Belfast, is that in Dublin there is a better atmosphere all around the venues for larger parts of the day, in Belfast, most people tend to turn up direct to the concerts, unless a much younger teen crowd (usualy drunk teens, which doesnt tend to be at a U2 concert) However in saying this, U2 playing Belfast is fantastic, they dont play here as often as Dublin, but you'll still have a great night. BTW have a look online for the earplugs that you can have your child wear during the concert, they dont cut out the sound, but make it easier on the childs ears. https://www.everydayhearing.com/hearing-loss/articles/should-i-wear-earplugs-to-concerts/
  5. got a reply back, no collectors tickets for Belfast
  6. I'm the same love to keep my tickets for all concerts was hoping for a collectors ticket for the Belfast show, but apparently they're not available Ah well, mine are seats, therefore, I've the same ticket I leave with as I entered
  7. Think I'll contact Ticketmaster to see hopefully they are available. look better than the crapy ticketmaster tickets that look like any other concert apart from the writting
  8. Hi I got my two tickets today for Belfast, but didnt see anything about the Collectors Tickets. Are they available for any of the U2 shows and has anyone been able to get them for the Belfast Show ?
  9. I loved the show, there were a few surprises 1. The Irish Airforce doing a flyover witht he Tricolour in the fumes 2. The banner being passed around the stadium. I personally went to see U2 , to watch and listen to them, not usually a fan of the video screens in the past, loved what they did this time, putting video's assocated with the songs. I still prefer the band to just get up and play their songs, this time I think it worked well
  10. no, dont be concerned When I booked my tickets, I thought I had selected Collectors and only after my paper tickets arrived, I checked with TM and my order and found I hadn't so I then contacted TM and they were able to book me two collectors at the additional cost.... I suspect that my paper tickets are now useless, as i suspect they scan the barcodes
  11. Now that is a long shot, however nothing ventured, nothing gained
  12. Got both my collectors tickets today appear to be roughly credit card size, nice, but tbh not worth the price
  13. Belfast 1987 Joshua Tree, I should dig out some of the others, I should have Unforgettable, Rattle & Hum etc
  14. Thought I'd add a slight move away from the current tickets issue, and post some items from 30 years ago during the original Joshua Tree in Ireland, hopefully others will appreciate and add to it also 1st, my ticket to see U2 in the Kings Hall in Belfast (not ticket price includes handling fee and was only £10 back in the day), also tickets where different per concerts, unlike todays which all look the same (I've a Croke Park one somewhere also, as i seen them a few days later then) 2nd U2's autographs on the day of release of The Joshua Tree (this was shortly after Sunday Midnight in Making Tracks in Belfast ( I also have a cassette autographed at the same time, as they had run out of vinyl and CD's weren't as popular back in those days)
  15. Croke I believe is our biggest venue in Ireland They wouldn't have enough time to move the stage setup to another venue Mind it would be great if they did a Norn Iron show..... but doubt that... I don't see anywhere show Ed Sheeran for Croke this year, other than the irish mirror and cant see any reason for the GAA not to have either a Fri or Sun concert, as doubt they'd have a match on the Sunday after the concert, but only time will tell. Lets hope for the Fans, they do a second night, even if it's the end of the tour
  16. I know it's say finalise, but I would take that as for each of these Cities....... generally U2 play TWO in Ireland and I suspect they will still play a second at Croke, there's still space, as far as Croke are concerned, 3 concerts per year, and with 1 for Coldplay and 1 for U2, there's still ONE free..... I suspect this will be announced later today/tomorrow.... Hopefully , are there's going to be a lot more annoyed Irish fans, and ticket touts making a bigger killings (I've got my ticket, so I'm good)
  17. the idea is good, but I doubt they'd move to another venue Croke allows 3 concerts, currently Coldplay are doing one, so the other 2 would be U2
  18. Not with the I & E (last) tour. There, presales happened with added shows as well. Now, in previous U2 tours, usually what you said is what happened--but not with I & E. What happens now? Who knows, but I & E, being most recent, is perhaps the best guide/guess. good to hear, though I didn't know there were any additional show to the I&E tour and we were all limited to 2 tickets , which I used for my Belfast show. So I might be able to get 2 more (only used 2 for this Croke show) when they're up next
  19. There were a lot of these for sale on Fri, shame that "fans" (I know not real fans) ordered these to sell on at heavily inflated prices. I'd hope these ppl would end up with unsold tickets, unfortunately even if they do with a handful, they'll have made a killing with the ones they did sell. I've been to almost all Tours since the original Joshua Tree, except for When Love Comes Town, thanks to being a fan club member, I've been able to get in most cases 4 tickets, for my two bro's and sister-in-law, who are all big U2 fans. As much as I want to go to the concerts, I wouldn't pay a ticket tout over the odds for a ticket, especially 5 or 6 times the price (or even more in cases).
  20. Any idea when U2 will announce the second date ? I've a friend who's looking to get tickets, they missed out this morning and made their mind up too late to take advantage of my spare 2 pre-sale (which I only used to get mine and my bro's tickets with)
  21. doubt you'd be able to use the pre-sale code usually the extra dates are announced when the first day is sold out and then they are available to everyone And I've suspected they'd do a second show from the first was announced..... can't remember when U2 only did one concert in Croke
  22. Hi Mike, From another post in these forums, I found BBC2 is showing it on 27th Dec, Sounds better to wait until then, then there'd be no ads during the show, and can also catch it on HD on Sky thanks for the update anyway
  23. Hi I've been looking around for this and can only see the HBO broadcast on 7th Dec ( http://zootopia.u2.com/forum-175/announcement-20-postponed-paris-shows-new-dates-announced-67-dec-2015/), but no note of when its going to be broadcast on RTE or the BBC as originally planned. Any ideas if this is still going ahead or is it just HBO ?
