  1. Red Zone was brutal on this tour for me, and I've been doing RZ since 360. They jammed in way more people in on this tour, compared to the IE version. It was longer, skinnier, and further removed from the stage. The RZ bar service at previous shows on 360, IE and JT ran until last call as it would anywhere else in the arena, and on this tour it shut down before the show even started (like 8:05pm)! I can appreciate the contribution that the RZ ticket makes to a worthy cause, but strictly from an enjoyment perspective, the RZ experience for EI completely sucked compared to the 360, IE a

  3. I heard from a reliable source that there are venue holds on the Air Canada Centre that prevented U2 from working Toronto into this leg of the tour. Most likely the reason for no arena show, as there is no other suitable venue in the proximity other than Copps Coliseum in Hamilton. They should have played Ottawa though, while they were that close to MTL. Ottawa is a strong market for them and would be a guaranteed sell out for multiple nights at CTC.

Full arena lights on, Living on a Thin Line (The Kinks) as intro music, waiting for the band to come on, at end of song kill the lights) love is all we have left (lights go out, arena is completely dark, band is on stage but we can't see them, Bono is singing) you're the best thing about me the blackout until the end of the world gloria red flag day new year's day lights of home city of blinding lights get out of your own way american soul the fly (lady with the spinning head snippet) then back into the fly acrobat
  5. Ordered The Blackout on vinyl. The closest vinyl shop to me is 1.5 hrs away. I called that shop today and just asked a simple question: Hello! Would you be able to confirm if you are offering U2: The Blackout as part of your Black Friday Record Store Day selection? I didn't ask them to hold a copy. I didn't ask for multiple copies. I didn't even ask for the price. The answer, in a rather rude and condescending tone: We DO not discuss what the in-store offerings will be. That's the point of Record Store Day offerings. That's the policy, you HAVE TO come to the store, no
  6. Love The Blackout....YTBTAM really grew on me after a few listens, American Soul sounds pretty cool, and Get Out Of Your Own Way is a bit too syrupy and some of the lyrics make me cringe. Overall, I feel optimistic about this album and I am really looking forward to it.
  7. Apologies if this topic is opened already, but I see a second Montreal show listed now for Wednesday, June 6th.
  8. It doesn't cost anything to think, and I was pondering this last night: Something that U2 could consider for future tours, when playing during the spring/summer/fall months. Based on fan feedback from the experience, innocence and Citi presales, a significant portion of U2's devoted fan base simply wants access to great rock 'n roll with GA admission. This concept runs counter to an arena style tour, simply due to the fact that you can't fit 15,000-20,000 people on a hockey arena floor. What about a companion event? Example: the band books the arena tour. We all know that corporat
  9. I'll actually be quite happy when this whole I&E / E&I staging setup is retired for good. I find it to be obtrusive and divisive to a great concert experience. Some of the best shows I have ever seen were from the opposite end of the arena from the stage (Vertigo, Toronto 2005) where you get to really take in the entire perspective, Streets alone from that vantage point is amazing. On this tour, those seats have been reduced to limited view and wasted. The sound on this tour will be excellent, through their recent advances, but I really hope they take a step back and exercise a sob
  10. The Toronto Maple Leafs won't go that deep into the playoffs, so plenty of opportunity exists for E&I shows at the Air Canada Centre ;-) Having said that, I snagged Montreal with my experience code, and I'll wait to see what shows/cities are added later.
  11. 2 Redzones for the missus and I. I didn't have any issues during the experience presale. Was in & out in 4 minutes. I also think we are lucky to have been through Evenko, sounds like TM was a disaster.
  12. The Blackout would be a killer opener for sure, followed up by The Electric Co!
  13. That Nassau plan really doesn't appear correct. The staging is a rehash of the I&E stage, according to every other link. It won't be revised for a single show. The mix control section is where the B-stage goes, and there are no red zones indicated.
