  1. They erect two small stages for use on just one song. These are erected in the back of the respective Red Zones and are used by Adam and Edge on just one song - Pride - right after they conclude on the smaller e-stage. Adam and Edge "swap sides" from their normal positions on the main stage, such that (as you face the main stage) Adam stands on the small platform to the left and Edge is on the small stage to the right. These two stages are literally simply not there until a small crew of three or four guys magically appears in the respective Red Zones and erects them while the band is o
  2. They've also significantly dropped prices in many seating areas.
  3. Max, will that be set up soon? I believe all the presales are now over, correct? Or are there a few still going on?
  4. I can't argue with the statements made in the original post other than the comment about the setlist. I'm sure the band has retained full artistic control over their shows, such that they're the ones deciding what songs they're playing. Other than that, I'd say your general discussion about pricing is pretty spot on. Biggest mistake they're making in the whole scenario, though, is that they continue to price GA tickets well BELOW what the market is willing to pay. I'm pretty sure that this is a band decision, not a Live Nation decision. That forces some of the tickets for seats into th
  5. Perhaps because it's pretty much impossible to GET a flippin' ticket that $80 section? ;-)
  6. There are different perks associated with different price levels of VIP tickets. Here's the language for the "party" package.... Enjoy your U2 Experience with access to an exclusive pre-show party with features including a Premium reserved price level 1 ticket- Preshow buffet dinner and bar (beer & wine) *food offerings may vary- U2 Tour VIP gift- not available to general public- Access to the VIP merchandise stand- One parking space per order (where available)- Entry into a drawing for a pre show backstage tour- and an On-site VIP concierge. That's the highest level, with the G
  7. Totally agree with you. But those are the transgressions of the past. At least this time around we know what we're getting when we buy RZ tickets - IF one chooses to stay in the Red Zone where the ticket is "assigned."
  8. Although the RedZone positions are indeed pretty much crap, I don't believe there's any requirement that a RZ ticket holder has to STAY in the RedZone. Like so many other tours, I'm pretty sure a RZ ticketholder can just mingle in with the rest of the GA crowd. Overpriced? Yeah. But a totally sucky position? Only if you stay there.....
  9. Still looking to trade for Nashville GA tickets. I now also have a single NYC (Madison Square Garden) show #1 seat in Section 2 (right at the end of the floor, in the risers just off the floor) ticket to trade for a Nashville GA if anyone would prefer that ticket.
  10. I'm pretty sure that was me. I couldn't find any specific "section" to post the trade I was offering, so I just started my own topic.
  11. Not sure if "hanging back and wandering" is a feasible option. The GA areas on the arena floors lean toward the crowded side and many will try that approach, so you probably won't be able to simply "move" from one end to the other and actually get anywhere near the band members. Admittedly I only caught one show on the '15 tour (at Madison Square Garden), but we found it best to pick a spot and stick with it. We also got there pretty early (such that we were on line for about an hour before the doors opened). I'm just guessing these shows will be very similar and that moving from one area
  12. True. But this concept of "verified resale" on Ticketmaster itself makes no sense whatsoever. With the quantity of tickets on there, particularly for shows that were NOT sold out yesterday, I am extremely doubtful that these are truly "verified fans" who are reselling tickets. Something extremely fishy is going on here. And to make us all jump through all the "get verified and get your code" hoops to get tickets, yet permit resales THROUGH THE SAME SITE (Ticketmaster) ---- well, this all stinks far worse than a dead, rotting fish!
  13. Nashville & Tulsa (and LI and Newark before that) only seem to have resale. What a flippin' farce!
  14. Live Nation was a promotion company. It never set out to compete with Ticketmaster. Here's an article back when the acquisition (or "merger," as it was labeled by those involved) was announced. But the bottom line was that Live Nation acquired Ticketmaster (as Ticketmaster shareholders were the one's compensated when they gave up their stock). But all the fears expressed by those opposed to the merger have proven quite valid, that's for sure. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-ticketmaster-livenation/live-nation-to-buy-ticketmaster-idUSTRE5194DL20090210
