  2. So gigs for Ireland will have paperless GA tickets. Great news for the fans, not so good for secondary sellers...

  4. The band are bringing the iNNOCENCE & eXPERIENCE Tour home to Ireland. U2’s iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE European Tour 2015 will finish with six home shows in Ireland - two shows in Belfast on 18th & 19th November and four shows in Dublin on 23rd + 24th, 27th + 28th November. It’s a year since the band released Songs Of Innocence, an album exploring their earliest experiences of growing up in Dublin influenced by 70’s rock and punk and early 80’s electronica - and now they’ll be performing those songs to a home crowd for the first time. Tickets for the Irish shows go on sale at 9am on Monday 14th September, will be limited to 2 per purchaser and are priced from £30 to £165 for Belfast and from €30 to €185 in Dublin, plus charges. Tickets can be bought at the venue box offices and online. Paid subscribers to U2.com will be emailed details of presales. €2 million raised from these concerts will go to Music Generation, Ireland’s National Music Education Programme which currently provides high quality subsidised music tuition to some 26,000 children and young people. Music Generation was originally set up with €5m funding from U2’s 2009 shows at Croke Park, along with a further €2m raised by The Ireland Funds. 'In the 18 years that I have worked with U2, the home shows are always very special.’ said Arthur Fogel, CEO Global Touring Live Nation Ent. ‘These shows promise to be brilliant.’ 'Finding venues to take this show is actually quite tricky,’ added The Edge. ‘We’re grateful to our overworked crew who finally cracked the reconfiguring to fit these venues.' The Dublin and Belfast dates are: Wed, 18th and Thurs, 19th November - Belfast – SSE Arena Mon 23rd, Tues 24th, Fri 27th & Sat 28th November - Dublin – 3Arena View the full article
  5. Tonight, Sunday November 22nd at 7pm in Fitzroy Church In Belfast (77 University Street BT7 1HL) there will be an unpacking of the #U2ieTour Belfast concerts that took place earlier this week - the first time the band has played in the city for 18 years. Fitzroy players and singers (Christopher Wilson, Dave Thompson, Jonny Fitch, Chris Fry, Shannon Clements/Peter Greer and Andy Patterson) will perform songs from the current tour set and Steve Stockman (Walk On - The Spiritual Journey of U2) will unpack the songs, visuals and the emotional, political and spiritual soul of the setlist. Steve told us : "Fitzroy is renowned, across the world, for its evenings on Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springteen, Bob Dylan, Christy Moore etc. They recently built their entire morning service around the hymns and songs of Van Morrison, the day before his Cyprus Avenue concerts. They have done U2 before but this evening will be a very specific look at these Belfast shows. New voices and new thoughts will be added to the mix. We are thrilled to have Angela Pancella (atu2.com) with us to compare and contrast the North American and Belfast shows!" "Local context was all over the Belfast shows. The political murals, the naming of the most bloody events and, of course, Raised By Wolves and Sunday Bloody Sunday. Even the debris pages that fall from the roof every night during Until The End Of The World was a pointed political comment right on the cutting edge of this week’s news". If you cannot be there they hope to broadcast the event live on Periscope - http://periscope.tv/fitzroypc Steve and Janice Stockman meet Bono just before the first U2 Belfast Show in 18 years

  8. I have one GA for sale, for Wednesday 18/11/15. edit: just remembered today that it's SEATED tickets we have for tonight. but yeah anyway, is nobody looking tickets? :/
  9. Ahead of the #U2ieTour arrival in Belfast tomorrow the Zoo got news of a really great initiative that fans have put together for these special shows.. We spoke to two of the organisers, Connie & Gina to tell us all about it, and a bit about themselves.. First, here is the announcement from the #WhiteOutBelfast Facebook Event page 'This Wednesday, U2 are performing in Belfast for the first time in 18 years. It will also be their first show since the attacks in Paris. Belfast has its own history of terror and violence, so it seems like the right time and place to make a statement in the name of peace, love and music and pay our respect to the victims of terror and violence all around the world. Thus we plan to #whiteoutbelfast Wear something white if you can and most importantly wave something white, like a napkin, tissue, piece of cloth or paper, when U2: 1) Enter the stage 2 Play Raised by Wolves 3) Play Sunday Bloody Sunday 4) Play One (they don't always play One) Remember, big flags and banners will not be permitted inside the arena, so keep it small (no bigger than A4) and simple. People behind you also needs to see. Share this on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtags #whiteoutbelfast and #u2ietour' If you need a short link for the event, you can share this: http://on.fb.me/1Ny2QSr Connie Maria Westergaard, Creator and Chairperson of White Out Belfast "I'm from Copenhagen, Denmark, and I'm 38. I work with communications and social media. I fell in love with Belfast and U2 when I went there as an exchange student in 2003, and a guy lent me his U2 collection. I didn't leave my dorm room for days! so it's always been a dream of mine to see U2 live in that city, because both are very dear to me, and for me it's where it started. I love Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry. Their music are such a big part of my life and as a band and individuals they are a huge inspiration to me, and I am sure they will understand why we are doing #whiteoutbelfast - they taught us that it's always impossible until it's done. We are One!" Gina Cloe, Designer and Co-Chair of White Out Belfast "I’m from Indiana, USA originally but presently residing in the beautiful state of North Carolina, and I’m gearing up to celebrate my 32nd birthday on the 23rd of this month. I am a freelance designer and artist and my favorite projects have been U2 designs: posters, images, you name it I’ve done it. Anytime U2 is involved it is a passion project. I have been a fan since I can remember. I stole my Dad’s Achtung Baby album the second he got it, fell in love, and never did return it. Sorry, Dad! I guess you could say that Achtung Baby was my birth into the U2 fandom but I am deeply in love with Songs of Innocence. I have connected with this album, the lyrics, and even the experiences behind them on a very personal and emotional level. That album kept me afloat during the roughest part of my life. And, if you delve into the fan community you will find that the U2 lifeboat has been rescuing fans for a long time. I was able to catch the guys at Boston 4 and it was a phenomenal and moving show! The U2ers are the best people, not even just fans, on the planet! This is a tight-knit family and an army when it needs to be. That’s why I’m so proud of White Out Belfast. We are #strongerthanfear."

  10. Hey all - Can't wait till 2AM this morning when tickets go on sale! For those travelling to Belfast and Dublin, just wondering where people are staying - I'm finding it a bit difficult to wade through all the vast jumps in prices for a decent hotel or hostel in both cities - and I used to live near Dublin and visited both places frequently so I am somewhat familiar with the areas! Also wondering if anyone is planning a U2 fan get-together around the shows? or plans to explore the neighbourhoods? Do we have any tour guides here? Maybe someone can lead us in a tour of u2 sites in the city! I need more crazy U2 fans in my life! It would be great to meet new people! Cheers!
  11. Hi everyone, I have a hard copy ticket (seat) for the second Belfast show on 19th November. The seat is in section North middle and is a pretty good seat. I have gotten GA tickets since buying this seat, so have no use for it any longer, but I will be at the concert myself and can give you the ticket in person. Face value is 170 pounds. I will sell it at half price though - or will be happy to swap it for any kind of ticket for the the second or fourth show in Dublin (24th or 28th November). I just don't want it to go to waste. Best regards, Connie

  15. Belfast local looking forward to see U2 in Belfast for the first time in 18 years. Anyone know of any pre or post concert events post them here. Also if anyone is looking for information regarding Belfast (where to stay, eat, drink) please ask here. I'm sure the locals will be more than happy to assist.
  16. After 30 years of being a U2 member and never having a single problem or complaint,i think i am entitled to a little rant.I have just been notified that i am not eligible to join the pre sale for tickets tomorrow for my home town as i have already used my allocation of two for another show.this would usually be ok but when i used my code these dates were not announced.so now i am going to the expense of travelling to another country to see the band i love and have to face the strong possibility that i will miss out to people who 'HATE BONO' or 'WOULDNT GO TO SEE U2 IF THEY WERE PLAYING IN MY GARDEN".surely in a case like this exceptions could be made. In any case,i love the band rain,hail,or shine so....rant over
  17. Lets start a thread for any contests out there (Europe and/or internationally) to see U2 in Ireland. Please post details and a link below!
  18. So the agony of no Dublin dates has been replaced by the joy of the confirmation of dates only to be replaced by the agony of no pre sale codes being available then being replaced by joy with the newly reinstated codes now being replaced with the agony of sitting in an automated Ticket master Queue hopefully to be replaced with joy upon success of obtaining a ticket. Oh the joys and agonies of following U2, now someone wake me early in the morning, Thanks.
