    Landing into Sydney on Sunday 17th, four of us flying out from the UK....

    We’ll definitely be up for pre show beers on both Friday and Saturday...

    On another note, I’ve emailed Elevation Australia (Sydney based U2 tribute) to see if they have anything planned on the lead up to the gigs, that would be quite cool.

    I read elsewhere that there was a Sydney Harbour Cruise with a U2 theme, but that it had sold out ? I can’t find any more information than that - it was mentioned on U2Songs.

    Anyway, I’ll post into the thread if I get anymore information.

    Not long now ! 

    Yeah the cruise sold out fast, there is supposed to be a meet up at some hotel for those that didnt get cruise tickets.

    That would be great if there was a tribute band playing, please keep us informed.

    Im planning on Porterhouse unless somebody finds something better.

    @blueandgoldfan are you flying out from Texas? I'm doing Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney and I'm flying out from LHR via IAH but my friend in Katy can't find a reasonable flight to join me.... It sucks as my flight from London is $850 or so return and she can't get on the same plane but start / end in Houston for under $3k!

    There are some reasonable flights out there, just keep searching Orbitz, Priceline, etc. By accident I discovered that Qantas has like a payment plan option where you get charged per month. I had never seen this before, so I dont know how common a practice this is. I went ahead and did the payment plan. Itll cost me about $150 more in the long run, but just for me it was better than dropping $1500-$1700 right now. Good luck.

  5. I know there are loads of pubs around the arena, was hoping for something more U2 or Irish themed, but I dont think anybody has organized anything. If so I'm not aware of it. Legends Corner is always a good place, and its right across the street from the arena, but I'm sure it is going to be slammed. Might try something a little further down Broadway, crowds might not be as bad. Friday night we were planning on doing something in East Nashville. 

    If any locals know of any good Irish pubs, please let the rest of us know.

  6. I am thankful to get tickets to Dublin, but what a complete disaster. From my codes not working, to reasons I still dont understand my card not being accepted twice, but working the third time (yes I notified my bank in the states ahead of time I was going to be making an overseas purchase.) I have never had an experience as horrible and frustrating as this. There has got to be a better way because this hardly seems worth it. I'll be happy tomorrow, but today I feel like U2 kicked me in the groin and Ticketmaster kneed me in the privates :/

    Thank you to the mods for all their help.

  7. I fully realize there are greater problems in the world right now, but I wonder how much of this is Live Nation, and how much of this is U2? I went in thinking if I didnt get seats under $125 I was willing to pass. After hotel/air/meals/pints/concert shirts, $300 tix is just too out of hand. I got lucky and got some GA but I feel for those that werent as fortunate. It really leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth that this band, while maybe not the cause of the insane ticket prices, at least isnt doing more to get our backs. 

  8. I sat behind the stage and nosebleeds for one of the shows in NY for i&e, the good news is you'll be able to see the stage just fine, there arent any obstructions in the way. Bad news is youll miss the big giant tv screen. If I remember correctly they did have a smaller tv up so you could at least see their faces. I sat next to some fun people, so it was a good time. You'll be grand!
