I'm actually going to be seeing U2 in Chicago on 7/2. It's their 5th Chicago show, and it was so easy to get GA floor seats. I just got on TM, clicked 4 floor seats, and bought them. No presales, no paying 10x face value from brokers. It should be noted that in Chicago their first 3 shows are sold out, the 4th show is 90% full, just some nosebleeds. The 5th show on July 2nd, though... it's gonna have a lot of empty seas. A few things have happened with U2;

1. The free album /Apple scandal really hurt their public image
2. Their prices are very high compared to previous tours.
3. The 360 tour in 2009-2011 was so highly attended that a lot of casual fans probably came, saw, and crossed U2 off their concert bucket list.
4. They are an "aging band" who are not going to have hit singles anymore. Their last true hit was "Vertigo" in 2005. It happens. I happen to like Songs of Innocence, but I think it'd be weird to have a band in their mid 50s competing in the charts with Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

Well said. I'm a big U2 fan, and going to the first two Chicago shows. I really think they're doing EXTREMELY well, all things considered. How many bands could sell the vast majority of five arena shows in Chicago at their prices? I think the answer is zero, and that includes the Stones(no offense).

Their latest album has got very little airplay or promotion, and they had to cancel the week on the Tonight Show because of Bono's mishap. I have friends who bought extra tickets from me because they had no idea U2 was even touring.

Let's not forget that they still make profit at 80% capacity. The real question they have to ask is 1. Is this the total amount of current concert going fans or 2. Did we shut out our blue collar fans because we charged too much?

We. Are you part of the Stones? Oh, no

Gorgeous...
I have admired her since I saw her in the movie "They all laughed"
Keith is indeed a lucky man... and I think he knows it.

I love the Stones for so many reasons!
IM READY FOR THE ZIP CODE TOUR!!!!



Where will you see them?
I guess it all depends on your ZIP CODE.

For those who missed out in the general sale, one good way to get an idea of how easy it will be to get reasonably priced tickets as the show date approaches is to monitor how well tickets are selling on Stubhub. Usually, most of the tickets that will be put up for sale are listed by the end of the day following the start of the General Sale. So, as of 12 midnight Pacific time last night, the numbers for a few select cities were:

San Diego: 3756
Minneapolis: 2750
Dallas: 7095
Milwaukee: 3303
Kansas City: 3940
Buffalo: 4200

To be honest, except for Dallas, those totals are a bit lower than I would have expected. Check the totals from time to time to see how well a show is selling on the secondary market - if the number is not decreasing at all, then you might be able to snag good seats as a better price later on. Not foolproof, but a good guide.

Two weeks after the General On Sale,these are the revised totals of available tickets on Stubhub. Remember that this nets out new listings and sold tickets (or removed listings). The total available tickets have actually increased in Minneapolis and Buffalo, and decreased only slightly in Kansas City.

San Diego: 2609 (-1147)
Minneapolis: 3065 (+315)
Dallas: 6931 (-164)
Milwaukee: w 3030 (-273)
Kansas City: 3772 (-168)
Buffalo: 4211 (+11)

I agree that U2 may not be doing as well as they have in the past, or perhaps as well as they had hoped, but any band that can play eight nights at MSG is still in very good shape.

Madonna on the other hand, has had a hard time selling out one show in Brooklyn. She announced a second MSG night, but the first has not sold out. He popularity seems to have just evaporated - interestingly, one thing that people are pointing to as the reason for her problems: she emphasizes her new material, which people are not that interested in, and ignores her older albums.

They did all across Europe and down under last fall, EVERY CITY had its own,
I am hoping hoping hoping they do it for all cities in the U.S too. PLEASE!!!

They hired (I think) local artist to submit art and sold
posters $75,000000 so they made good money on them, so lets
hope it was worth their time and they do it all again and again.

Surely the point of excluding wives from a tour would be so girlfriends could come on tour.

So my "plan" for this tour is- I have regular tix that I got in one of the presales, ok seats, but not great. I also was fortunate enough to get Lucky dip tix for the same gig...so 2 of our friends are coming to the show, they take the presales and my wife and I go in with the Lucky dips. My wife and I will sit in whichever are the best seats. Any comments on this strategy will be appreciated!

Wishing you the best on what looks like a decent strategy. I tried a similar strategy for a Licks theatre show and it backfired, hope it works out for you.
