  1. HI there I'm looking to buy 1 x ticket for any of the Amsterdam shows. Ideally a GA ticket. If you know of someone who is selling or if you have a spare ticket then please get in touch. Thank you
  2. I know outdoor gigs always start earlier on Sunday. Not sure about indoor? But i imagine it will start slight earlier. I'm planning on having a few beers before the gig!!!
  3. i think the 7pm stage time is early. Anyone else agree?
  4. Catching the train soon from Manchester to London. This will be my 12th U2 show and the 1st of this tour. Going to be rocking tonight!!!
  5. London shows i think Noel Gallagher would be a good shout. He lives in London and is a massive fan who usually attends U2 concerts when he is not touring himself.
  6. I'm opened minded with all bands, and i'm always interested to hear new music. This year i watched Tama Impala support the Arctic Monkeys and they blew me away. Great to see new themes, that connect with the mood of the crowd and U2. Basically i don't want to see luke warm, piss poor acts with half a tune. Anyone remember Fatima Mansions from 1992 Zoo Tv Tour? Christ!!
  7. Always up for the Charlatans Hoping they do Glastonbury next year as well Respect to you dude!!
  8. Good choice. Royal Blood are supporting Foo Fighters on next years UK stadium tour. I watched Royal Blood last year support Arctic Monkeys.
  9. I suggest sending an email to venue requesting to speak to their Events Manager. Start communications and maybe someone on the inside can make a decision. I understand U2 moderators on here are working hard behind the scenes on this. Hang in there mate.
  10. I've just emailed the Glasgow Hydro requesting to speak with the Events Manager. Hopefully talking to a human who has authority could be beneficial. I will report back of my findings. In the meantime 'a massive thank you' for the U2 moderators on here who are sorting this issue out behind the scenes. Not just for me, but for all other U2 fans struggling with this crap from Ticketmaster. We are all in it together, and we will win. Cheers Mod's
  11. Same corporate crap i receive. Like i said in my original post, my wife bought my tickets as a Christmas present for me. My wife will not be attending. Yes i know there were plenty of T&C's i could of read prior to purchase. But i chose not to. I didn't expect to of come across such awful conditions. I mean if i was booking a holiday to the Lebanon then i would read the T&C's before i booked a flight. If i choose to go back packing in Iraq i would of course do research before i made my purchase to travel. I subscribed and paid my $50 My wife booked a U2 ticket. Didn't read the conditions. All we want to do is watch U2.
  12. Noel Gallagher would work well in the USA. Here in the UK Noel sell's out arena's, but only theatres in the USA. Both Noel and U2 are good friends. Oasis once supported U2 in San Francisco on the PopMart Tour 1997. In the UK i think The Charlatans would work. They have a new album coming soon. So would Primal Scream. Primal Scream in Glasgow would be mega cool.
  13. If U2 wish release a live dvd in time for next Christmas, then i doubt it will be London, or any other European show. Most probably a North American date. New York seems likely as they will have plenty of nights to pick and choose which filming was best.
  14. Looks like there is a gap for 2 x dates after the final London show. Got to be Manchester Arena or Birmingham NEC
  15. Which city do you think deserves to be chosen for filming the next live dvd? North America always get's a shout. Personally i would live to see a UK venue for a change. London O2 is an impressive arena and would look great on the big screen. Although, should U2 want to release a dvd for next Christmas, then it will probably come from one of the North American shows. The European leg is in the fall/autumn and probably doesn't allow enough time to master a live release.
  16. Didn't the Rolling Stones play a free concert to 1/2 million people on the beach at Rio de Janerio? I have it on dvd, and i'm sure it was a free gig. London Hyde Park would be another good venue. Heaton Park Manchester and Knebworth, with it's capacity of 125'000
  17. Oasis did a few 'free' shows prior to an album released. Fans were selected at random via an email competition. The winners had to bring a copy of the email and photo I.D to the show. Wristbands only. The Stone Roses did something similar two years ago in Warrington. In 2006 Noel Gallagher played a series of 'free' acoustic concerts around the world. The winners were selected at random from the official Oasis site, during a competition. The problem U2 will experience is they have too many fans in every country in the world. I suppose they could look at this forum and see which current live members have been here the longest? But it will probably cause more trouble than it's worth, as there will be fans from the late 1970's early 80's who would argue they deserve first rights to a free concert.
  18. I think it would be 2 x shows at Manchester Arena. Manchester Arena can hold 18'000 and is the biggest outside of London.
  19. Here in the UK i think these would be a good choice for next year..... Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - (they supported in 2005) The Courteeners Primal Scream - (would work in Glasgow, definitely) The Charlatans - (new album out in March) In the USA i think Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds would be a very good choice.
  20. Obviously i can only guess, but i think part of the stage will be at a lower level. Similar to the Heart shaped stage on the Elevation tour. The Heart went lower down the further Bono walked out into the crowd. I have a feeling something similar will happen next year. Maybe the RZ area will be the most advantageous place? Bound to be. Although you look at any seating plans and i can't see any benefit from the RZ compared to the GA area. I think the stage will be higher or lower in the RZ area.
  21. In the North West there is only Man City and Old Trafford cricket stadium that offer concerts.
