So, if Billboard's pre-determined total of $736,137,344 and attendance of 7,268,430 are correct, by subtracting Billboard's totals with the current total, Moncton's final attendance and gross should be around this:

Quote:
July 30, 2011
Magnetic Hill Concert Site
Moncton, NB
$5,843,713
63,207 /
63,207
Average Ticket Price: $92.45
If the above results end up being the total after all, that would be very surprising, somewhat dissapointing. The Rolling Stones will still hold the record for the largest concert in Atlantic Canada.

September 3, 2005
Moncton, NB, Canada
Magnetic Hill
GROSS: $7,223,197
ATTENDANCE: 89,260
SHOWS: 1
SELLOUTS: 1
Average Ticket Price: $80.92

Billboard came out with that number while Moncton was still onsale. They probably took something close to the tour's average attendance of 66,000. U2.com said there was 75,000 at the show and usually those number are very close to what the boxscore will be.

U2 blew that away.

A great example of how the term "sold out" is based on tickets made available. Not to mention that there is no "U2/Live Nation" conspiracy like some around here suggest. Bon Jovi "sold out" this show with 33k but U2 played to an average of 62 k per night. Now I know the 360 configuration increases capacity but not by 100% lol

"The tour’s biggest single audience was 108, 800 at Stadium Azteca in Mexico City on May 14th, 2011"

They also mentioned that one fan went to 53 shows, yet someone on this board went to 88.

Assuming Live Nation and Willie Williams' Mexico numbers are correct:

Mexico City II - May 14, 2011 - 108,800 (Live Nation / Willie Williams' "official" figures)
Mexico City III - May 15, 2011 - 106,658 (Willie Williams' "official" figure)
Pasadena - October 25, 2009 - 97,014
Paris III - September 18, 2010 - 96,540

I think in a 180-degree configuration, that stadium can hold concerts with a capacity of 55,000 at most - with GA. And in some videos, the stadium was quite empty, and Bon Jovi's stage was placed a little more "inwards" towards the field and not at the end of the stadium.

I was at both Montreal and Moncton. Moncton looked like there was much more people there than Montreal. From my eye, they pushed 80,000 easily. I would be really excited if they made it to 90,000.

If confirmed that Mexico #2 figure is actually the North American record. Then Dead at 107k , then Mex #3, then maybe U2 Rosebowl at 97k. A mexican group is rumoured to have done 104,000 at Azteca in the round for a cheap charity show about a decade ago.

But because u2/LN/billboard won't honor the Mexico number the noffically those show each had attendance lower than Rosebowl.

I think that's a record for all of Canada, with U2's Montreal single night figure being #2/3. Sarstock 2003 was Stones headlined festival with 400k people.

I think Bono didn't sound as good in 2009 because his back stuff prevented him from being in full tour shape/stamina and his general all-around pain. not sure about back issues in 2005/2001.

Great numbers, but for people like me who thought they would bring 75,000+ in the concert site, that's odd.

Great numbers? For me, alongside Turkey, it´s the most disappointing result of the whole tour.

They initially stated that the event capacity would be maxed at 100k, so while a very solid number, it did not meet expectations at all.

This is very disappointing for the last show of the tour....

66,823 is not a 'low attendance' for a rock and roll show, but it did not meet the expectations....
