More impressive, the average NA ticket was ~$92 for 360 and its $120 now, so a 30% jump!!

What that means is with 46 shows at about 55k per show(Europe and SA are going to bring the average attendance up from the current 50k) means 2.5 million tickets!!!

Going for $120 a pop...this tour is going to gross about $300 million!

That's before they add a few shows to SA after the sellouts and if they add Australia and more European dates like they did for the US....this tour could hit $400 million +

Also a factor I suppose, they're not selling behind-stage seating, which probably would have mostly been cheaper seats on the 360 tour, since they were, you know, behind the stage. So fewer cheap seats would also bring the average up for JT30.
Remember, there was a tour called the Innocence And Experience Tour that saw increased ticket prices over 360. I think JT's tour prices are actually pretty similar to the Innocence And Experience Tour.

But wouldn't supply typically dictate higher prices for an arena show? Having 50,000 unique seats available vs 17,000?

Not necessarily. They are different tours, with different levels of demand to see the band. The size venue can impact ticket price, but far more important is simply the desire of the public to see the band in concert. Plus remember, a lot of those shows on Innocence and Experience struggled to sell their tickets. When you underplay the market, like say play theaters when you can play stadiums, you can jack the price up very high. But as we now know, much to my surprise and others, U2's popularity to a big dip and they were not underplaying at all in the markets they played. They wanted to do 8 shows in LA but had to stop at just 5. The two Denver shows failed to sellout. Combined attendance there was less than the one POPMART show in 1997.

You are talking about the US I guess? As you know, the world is bigger than that. They definately underplayed markets they played during the I&E tour!!

I think it's fair to expect a much lower average ticket price for Leg 3.

We shall see. I don't think it will dip below 100 bucks. That said, it's infuriating to see idiots on FB and Instagram saying they "couldn't go" to a U2 show, or WON'T go to U2 show because their ticket prices are so astronomical.

100 bucks. You pay that to go see a local cirque du soleil show, or a half way decent stand up comic. so stupid.

Looks like the Joshua Tree tour 2017 could finish with around $310 million in gross which might be enough for placement in the top 10 tours of all time. Top 15 once you adjust for inflation. That's really good for 50 shows. One wonders what they could do if they took the tour to every city around the world that could support a show of this size.

This was the first time they did a stadium show in 2 PNW cities on a single trip.

Vancouver never really had a drop and I know experienced last minute ticket buyers who did not get into the show - without or without all the GA headaches. Both Canadian shows had a couple thousand tickets that could have been sold if the sight lines were there.

Dallas was 10k short of what other 270 sight line shows had done there.

George Strait did nearly 105,000 for his 2014 "in the round" show, 35 more than U2 did on 360.

May 26, 2017 - Arlington, TX - AT&T Stadium
GROSS: $6,044,330
ATTENDANCE: 49,807
SHOWS: 1
SELLOUTS: 1
AVERAGE TICKET PRICE: $121.36

Did Dallas have a greater percentage of "potentially unsold seats" than Pitts?
