  1. I'm in the RED hill group an i was able to buy the ticket within few minutes. Bought my GA ticket and it will be delivered to my office address in India. Didn't know that the RED zone tickets would have to be collected on the day of the show. I was considering RED zone ticket but in a way glad that i don't have to worry about collecting it on the day of the show as there can be huge crowds in queue.
  2. Thank you for the information. Our last trip to Amsterdam was a bit hurried and we couldn't do many things. Would love to try cycling, Heineken Experience or maybe even Giethoorn day trip if it is worth the effort. Let us hope that we choose the right things.
  3. Hi Gogme United This will be my second time to Ziggo Dome with 1st visit during the 2015 concert. Could you advise where do the U2 fans generally go for Pre show and aftershow get together at a pub. Are there any particular pubs that are famous for U2 fans ? Also, is there any place in Amsterdam that sell U2 related souvenirs. Also, could you confirm that U2's hotel is Amstel in Amsterdam and usually what time and which place would be great for the possibility of catching them in person. I'm a die hard fan from India and would love to meet them in person if there is a possibility of
  4. With Adam confirming in a recent interview that they will not be touring next year, and (rumor) unconfirmed news of them signing another 10 year contract with Live Nation. I also feel the same that they will do a Achtung Baby 30 Anniversary tour considering how successful the TJT tour was. Also, as AB was their Best album till date, the AB anniversary tour should be even more popular amongst the fans leading to more $$$. I think we are now in the Final Decade of their Career and the band will make sure to make it count until the end with such tours and i'm sure with at least 1-2 more alb
  5. 3 Tours in 3 years and 2 albums... i consider myself lucky to have seen them live 1st time in 2015 and then again in Dublin last year and now looking forward to completing the circle of I&E in Amsterdam this year. Songs of Experience album completed the idea of I&E song albums beautifully with '13'. I really believe that there is another album in the back of their minds which in all likely hood should be titled Songs of Ascent. I remember reading their manager's interview recently where he even admitted to being open to the idea of a 30 Year Anniversary tour (their Best Album ever
  6. Is it worth waiting for the 2nd/3rd shows declaration like they did during SOI. With 3 to 4 shows in major cities i think it is better to hold in case one is flexible in terms of the city they can go to.
  7. i have pre ordered the Deluxe version of the album CD on the official U2 store and have received 4 songs download link for Blackout, GOYOW, YTBTAM & AMERICAN SOUL. Considering the CD will be dispatched in December & it will take few weeks before we receive it in hand, i was wondering whether i will get the rest of the album songs Download links in my account page once the album is released on 01 Dec. Can somebody who pre-ordered the previous albums of U2 online or anyone else having info please confirm whether we will get the remaining songs for download on 01 Dec having pre-rde
  8. I've been to Paris & Rome so i'm looking forward to exploring a new city like maybe London, Brussels or even Vienna if they decide to tour there for SOE. But my mind keeps going back to Dublin & Amsterdam as well considering how good they were. More for Dublin because of the way the whole city was decked up in the days leading up to the concert day & the festive mood in the air in Pubs with fans from all over the world on the day of the Concert. But i have been dragging my wife along on this U2 concert adventure twice already even after she is not as big a fan as me so convincing
  9. The Little Museum of Dublin has the best collection so far of U2 memorablia including a Trabant car model. Highlight of the visit is the nice tour given by their staff for the history of Dublin. A Very nice & must visit museum which was not boring at all unlike other famous museums around the world.

  11. When I look at the world from ATYCLB.
  12. This song is beginning to sound much better after listening so many times since release in the past few days.
  13. Probably one of the very few die hard fans from India. Love for U2 is taking me around the world and already looking forward to my next concert in a new city.

  14. Having seen them live only twice, once in Amsterdam for SOI and in Dublin for TJT tour, I'm already thinking for the SOE tour and wondering which other city will be the best place to see them live. Can the other fans please advise which other city is a must visit for live U2 concert. I really liked the energy at The Temple Bar area in Dublin on the day of the concert with fans from all over the world enjoying together before heading to the Croke Park. Is there another place in Europe which has almost similar atmosphere as in Dublin on the day of the concert.
  15. This song sounds soooo much better when heard on a good sound system with all bass/ woofer effects. You can feel each band member playing their instrument to their best. Adam's bass, Larry's drums, Edge's riffs & Bono's wonderful voice... all of them are on fire. This song has the tempo of Acrobat, Vertigo & Volcano but in a way it feels better than all of them & i look forward to being part of the GA when they perform this live. It will sound way better in live. Overall i have huge expectations from SOE after the amazing SOI album & the I&E tour in 2015. Going by thi
  16. Any idea what time one should leave and reach the for Hogan Stand seats. For the seats i hope there is not going to be much delay in getting inside. Also any idea which places are having live tribute bands playing right now.
  17. Thank you Heather & Carl... for sharing your experience. I'm looking forward to the Dublin experience and after seeing the recent pictures of the Coldplay concert at Croke Park i'm really excited. It looks amazing...
  18. Faraway... so close. ? This song is my favorite as well but highly unlikely they will change the set list now.
  19. @paulobrennan Thanks for sharing your experience. I just needed that.?
  20. Oh c'mon... I was just a little disappointed with so much light taking away the nice effect of the 8K background screen and also the beautiful effect of people's phone light during the song 'Bad'. This will be only my 2nd U2 Concert and I was looking forward to it especially as it is my 1st concert In Dublin. I'm sure you've been to plenty of U2 concerts. Sorry if I didn't meet your standards of living an ideal U2 fan life.
  21. I got mine couriered through DHL for which I happily agreed to pay extra. Got them in 2 days from Dublin to New Delhi. Thanks to their support team who checked with me about it. Had the option to home Print tickets or collect from their office in Dublin but thought it would be better to get them sent by Express courier before I reach there.
  22. I just noticed in London concert pics that it wasn't dark by the time they started playing TJT album Songs. I was really looking forward to see them at Croke Park with Sun completely set but it seems it will be even more day light during Dublin Concert as the sunset time for Dublin is 09:51 pm which is even more than London at the moment. Please someone tell me that it will be even better than what I'm seeing in London pics with the GA looking half empty and daylight... it just doesn't seem the same like it did during US shows as seen in all the pics. Nevertheless this being my
  23. Coming to Dublin first time all the way from India along with my wife. This will be my 2nd U2 concert after Amsterdam I&E tour.
  24. I'm from India and its the same story with me. They have dispatched another set of Tickets which should have reached by now but i have been told that i can ask them to send the home printable tickets by e-mail in case i don't receive them soon. You should check with Ticketmaster e-mail support... they will help you out with this.
