  1. It's on my bucket list, but I have no idea how to do it. I noticed the Dublin shows sold our very, very quickly. I will be travelling to Europe in the fall and would love to go.
  2. There wasn't a very large selection at SAP Center in San Jose. I bought three shirts; one of them was specific to San Jose (the red, white and blue bullhorn). But I'm guessing that it will be offered at other venues with that venue's city. I think I counted about six shirts.
  3. At SAP Center in San Jose, they gave out wristbands. I always thought that was the best way for the GA line. Everyone gets a wristband, they can stay at the venue or leave, and the come back a couple of hours before the doors opened. There wasn't any argument about who got there first or situations where one guy was holding spots for 10 other people who showed up at 5:00 pm. I've seen that before and it got a little ugly. In San Jose, everyone was cool--no attitudes or animosity. Event staff was professional, courteous and did a nice job marshalling people along. We arrived at SAP a
  4. He was moving around pretty spryly at SJ2. I had a hard time keeping him in focus. I think it might take a bit to get back onto your fighting legs, especially in your late 50s.
  5. Night 1: arrived at 8:00 pm, no wait. This was for San Jose.
  6. Does anyone know when the check-in time will be for tomorrow's show? Thank you!
  7. Spoken like someone who has faced life's most greatest challenge and overcame it. That is truly admirable and a blessing. I've read many of your posts and always thought your responses were well-considered and erudite. I also thought some where quite optimistic and spiritual. While I am thankful to have my health, I have also experienced my share of challenges--combat, twice--and I will live with stuff for the rest my life. I also want to spend the rest of my day thinking of only the good things. What you've shared brought additional light to your posts, thank you.
  8. I'm right there with you. It's such a sad song.
  9. Manohlive, I believe that determination is defined by the individual and collectively as fans. But as fans, each of us will feel that certain albums were their best and others less than their best. I measure them by their music, too. The sheer totality of their creations are simply staggering and deserving of the highest praise. And I agree that "they're gonna do whatever they are gonna do as they seem fit". I--as well as the rest on this thread--were commenting on that the OP wrote. I think discussion was started given the recent news about Bono's health scare (and I still don't know wha
  10. IMHO, I don’t believe this thread is ageist. I think what the OP was saying was that the band has reached the highest peak and if they decided to hang them up, they would be going out on top. They have achieved what very few bands have and they have brought us tremendous excitement along the way. I’ve been a fan for a very long time and never have considered the end of the line, until recently. Bono’s health and the band’s age are factors in considering how much longer can they go. If the passion, imagination and discipline are still there, then I say, “hell yes.” But, writing
  11. bettydalton, I totally agree. I usually have to listen to their album many, many times to understand what is going on. Some take longer than others. SOE has taken a bit longer, but I'm liking to more and more. Can't wait to see them perform!
  12. Yes, I did check out their website. But their camera policy wasn't that helpful. I supposed I will need to call. My concern is the I'll be talking with someone who might not be trained well enough to answer my questions.
  13. Does anyone know what types of cameras are allowed at E+I 2018 at SAP Center? I saw lots of people with cameras (at I+E 2015), some had DSLRs. But I don't want to bring something that will be prohibited. Thanks!
  14. I agree. Most of these types of issues could be fixed with a better staff, or at the very least better training. The question is: who is responsible for that, TM or the venue? From what I've heard, TM is notoriously cheap in regards to staffing at the lower levels. I always thought that all of those fees paid for stuff like that. But my guess is, they are probably finding areas where that can cut costs and that is one of them. Some of the staff is okay, but I got the feeling many of them were new at it. I will also venture a guess and say that they probably have a lot of turnover, which again
  15. Hi rhondamohler, here is a shot of the stage for i+e 2015 (taken at SAP Center, San Jose, Ca.). I believe they will be using the same stage for e+i 2018. I'm basing this assumption the floor plan according to Ticketmaster. As you can see, there is no obstruction behind the stage, but if you are directly behind you will probably not see the giant screen.
  16. Yes, he will get hard tickets. Best way to go, if you want a cool keepsake of the show. I screwed up an got e-tickets and all I got what this receipt-looking thing that was printed by the staff at the gate. It wasn't anywhere near as cool.
  17. I like this idea, too. What I noticed at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Ca. was that the devices the staff were using took several seconds for each CC holder. They worked as quickly as they could, but swiping the card and waiting to the tickets to print, took time. This caused a bottleneck that got much worse as time went on. We were near the front of the line (about 50 ahead of us) at around 3:00 pm. By 5:00 pm there were several hundred people behind us and this was just one line. We watched the lines from the Club Level and it was bad. There were ticket holders who didn't get in until
  18. What I was thinking was, say the tour begins on June 1st. Pre-sale tickets go on sale December 1st six months prior. From December 1st to January 31st, only U2 Subscribers will be allowed to buy tickets. The idea being letting Subscribers more than just a few days to try and get tickets. They would still get codes and pay with a credit card. Then on February 1st, tickets go on sale to the general public. I believe that the people that are not Subscribers, will wait two months for the General Sale. The last U2 show that I attended, that wasn’t sold out, was PopMart ’97. I think the
  19. Thanks, Malaboo! :) It was great; I actually was surprised to see them and had already made plans to scoop up Reserved Seats.
