Auckland 16 & 17 March

Melbourne 24 & 25 March

Anyone know of any others ?

I wouldn't call the Melbourne dates a rumour, considering the context in which they appeared. Those look pretty solid.

Auckland's second show seems up in the air, either the 16th or the 18th.

Haven't heard anything about anywhere else ...

Oh okay thanks a lot!

But now I'm scared for some reason - I just read that article in the Age about it being at the end of the Commonwealth games. And that videotape about Melbourne is on the terrorist hit list. I'm sorry to mention it, but being 15 and a huge worrier, that popped into my head. Someone tell me I am an idiot and it won't happen.

But otherwise, LET'S GET EXCITED!

NOW I can be really excited.

When do we suppose the tickets will go on sale?

And for dummies like me, where do we think the best place to get them will be? (phone internet or person I mean)

While I can't eliviate all your concerns I will point out that all major terrorist attacks (September 11, Madrid, London, Bali, Bali) have all happened at incredibly random times and not at major gatherings are.

Sydney surivived the Olympics, I think Melbourne will be safe with the games.

A worker at ticketek said leave has been cancelled from the week starting 3rd (???) December. That week I would guess.

In person. In person. In person. In person. In person. In person. In person. In person. In person. In person. In person. In person.

Try for presales, but the internet is always overloaded and will crash. I say line up early and you should get the tickets your after.

Make sure you are signed up to ticketek & ticketmaster for any possible presales though.

The Melbourne dates are from the article that was published in the age newspaper in melbourne on tuesday 8th november.

All the others are from spending TOO MUCH time on the internet.
Mostly from threads on interference, read that many I forget the thread titles but some will be in Pre announcement parties for capital cities like Brisbane or the one tree hill pre announcement party.

U2.com should just put us out of our misery and post a list of dates and cities on their web site.

But if we spent most of the past twelve months waiting for news I guess a few more weeks or days wont really hurt that much.

Hmmm. Secretly deep down I don't know if I want a Perth gig. If they don't come here it gives me an excuse to see more than one show over east and get my money's worth. Whereas if they play Perth I'm not gonna see them here and then also gonna go over and see them in Sydney, Melbourne etc..

That makes sense, with Packer recently buying Burswood (and also owning Ticketek.... and the SuperDome in Sydney... and your firstborn child).

Doesn't take five seconds to load U2NewZooland.com and see "Auckland on 17 March 2006".

So what you're saying if you dare venture away from the Murdoch press for your news you are spending too much time on the internet.

Thanks timothius, that was helpful and calming.

Okay, now it's my first show so I need all the information I can get - where to get tickets, how much, where to sit (a place where i can jump up and down and scream), what to take, etc, etc.

Tickets will be either Ticketmaster or Ticketek

We really dont know prices yet ($120+ one would think)

Where to sit?...either go for the GA or very good first level seats

What to take? Yourself (and some Friends if they are into U2) and forget about everything else for 2 and a bit hours
