Seems so anti-climactic after 360....

Still good to see!

I think the average ticket prices for LA and NYC will hover around $130.

I will be interested to see if they classify Denver's shows as sellouts they obviously were not since portions of the nosebleed seats were curtained off at both shows.

Is it not the case that this is maybe standard arena policy now, to curtain off the seats at the ends of the screen where view is severely restricted? And maybe deem these not to be "on sale" anyway? Be interesting to see if this continues on the rest of this leg.

Funny thing is that in 2009 U2 grossed pretty much the same amount of money at the Rose Bowl, and played to 13,000 more people, in one's nights work instead of 5.

I understand there are many reasons they aren't doing stadiums this time, but that's quite a statistic!

I have followed U2's boxscore results very closely since the Popmart tour and absolutely love getting results.

I know that it was by design that they went to arena's, to scale things back and go with a more intimate setting. From what I have seen of clips (going to my 1st show on 7/18), they spared no expense and really have done an awesome job!

With that said, its all about the mighty dollar when it comes to touring "pose" and how much you can make in a market (not necessarily how many people you can play to). With that said:

U2 360 (LA):

97,014 people (thats insane btw)
9.96 million gross
$102.66 avg ticket

As amazing as those numbers are, they only played 1 show in all of California on this leg, so the San Diego, San Fran and Oakland markets all had to go to the Rose Bowl to see U2.

Vertigo (LA)

34,527 people (2 shows)
3.67 million gross
$106.41 avg ticket

Now, they played 2 shows in San Diego, San Jose and Anaheim. So there total California gross was actually:

133,342 people (8 shows)
13.394 million gross
$100.45 avg ticket


U2 ie California total

118,903 people (7 shows)
14.72 million gross
$120.03 avg ticket

So yes its a lot more nights but they have been more successful and made a lot more money (not just 14.7 million vs 9.9 million but the reduced cost of transporting the stage).

With that said, do you want to know the most insane stat of them all? Im a big backer for U2 being the biggest touring act in the world, bigger than the Stones! Now, if the Stones went out on a full blown world stadium tour, would they top U2's 360? I think they would be able to top the gross but not the attendance and here is why:

Rolling Stones (San Diego 2015)

40,944 people
8.465 million gross
$206 avg ticket!!!!!

U2, Denver, Pepsi Center, 2005- 36,714- $3,509,741
U2, Denver, Pepsi Center, 2015- 28,141- $3,114,935

A difference of 8,000 tickets sold? AND they were on a Saturday/Sunday this year, vs weeknights in 2005. That's... bizarre....
Also, both Elevation shows sold over 18,000 tickets for both shows.
On 360 in Denver, they sold 77,918 tickets and grossed $6,663,410!

Why didn't Denver show up this time? I hope this doesn't affect their touring plans next year, aka not playing secondary markets for fear that they won't sell out.

There were 28,540 people at popmart, 54,000 at ZOO TV, 36,000 on the Joshua Tree two arena shows. So an attendance of 28,141 is the lowest attendance for a U2 tour stop in Colorado since the Unforgettable Fire tour in 1985 when there was 17,000+ at one show.
Clearly in the United States, the band has lost all the popularity that was built up during the 00s. Shocking that it would only take 4 years to see results like this, but songs from the new album have not dented the charts or other types of media. Many U2 fans don't even know the band is on tour, perhaps a result of playing so few cities.
Still, I think there are few active bands out there that could compete with U2 even at this lower level in the U.S.A. Metallica, AC/DC, Coldplay, and One Direction are the only ones that come to mind. Only One Direction would be ahead in the U.S.A. and its difficult to argue that they are a "band".
