Hawaii, April 8th (and 9th?) - Aloha Stadium! - Part XIV

Second U2 show unconfirmed
Star-Bulletin staff
features@starbulletin.com

So is there going to be a second U2 concert at Aloha Stadium? The rumor mill has been abuzz that it is a go for Sunday, April 9, the day after the band's first concert. That Saturday event is a near sellout, with only $95 tickets still available in the stadium's J and JJ sections in the upper, fifth-level yellow area.

As of now there is no official word from stadium officials on the second show.

If tickets do go on sale for a second show, it will happen around Pro Bowl weekend, Feb. 11 and 12. The thing is, the sale does not want to conflict with talk that tickets for Jack Johnson's Kokua Festival on April 22 at the Waikiki Shell are going on sale that busy weekend as well. So they supposedly will be held on a separate Saturday and Sunday.

Johnson will once again headline the show, which will include guests Willie Nelson, Ben Harper, Henry Kapono, former "American Idol" contestant Paula Fuga and her One Love 'Ohana, and ALO (the Animal Liberation Orchestra).

Random information

» What is the time difference in Hawaii? Here you go: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ If you ask this question on the thread, be aware that you will be receiving this

» The band will be flying to Honolulu from Australia, and the concert here will also feature opening band Rocko & the Devils. Rocko, being none other than the U2 Crew's own Rocko Reedy

» 15,000 GA tickets, 20,000 seats.

» The stadium will be in the baseball configuration, with the stage in the center-field area, facing south.





» Something to consider for GA line purposes. Hawaii's Largest Swap Meet is held every Wed, Sat & Sun 6am-3pm at the stadium's parking lot. This is good for food, restrooms, etc. purposes, but probably a bit of a problem for a peaceful set up.



Looks like we should be ok so long as set up is done in the area immediately adjacent to the stadium.

Thora, I had GA for Van 1, I don't remember what section for Van 2, I lost my ticket after I entered the stadium ( it was the first time in 4 trips to GM place that I saw the inside of the place besides the floor, all U2 shows) but about 1 foot to the left of Edge's piano, now quite directly looking at the side of the stage.

Actually, L is even with what would have been the tip of the ellipse, which were the most coveted and expensive reserved seats of this tour.
I had behind the stage seats for a number of shows this tour, and I LOVED them!! I was so close, completely unobstructed by GA standing, and I could see everything that went on!

That said, the stadium stage setup is completely different from the arena stage. There are no light curtains to see through, and they don't go up and down, the wall stays down. I wouldn't be too keen on these seats for a stadium show.

^the cool thing about side or behind stage is looking out at all the people cheering for you, I mean, U2. At first, I was almost self-conscious standing up in my seat because it just feels so weird looking out there.

ETA but it gives you an idea of what life for the band is like and why Bono gets such a rush from it

What about the people that lined up at the Aloha Stadium the day before the general ticket sale started and all ended up without GA tickets then and now (more than a month later) they have the possibility to buy them online.

perhaps there are more tickets (GAs) popping up because, after Monterrey, their estimate of how many people the field could hold changed? I dunno - just putting my in

NO! Don't pack the field even tighter with sweltering hot bodies like sardines so we cannot move or breathe and we dare not leave our spots for any reason.

I'm one of those people. I'm assuming I can't order GA tickets now because I already got 4 reserved on that first day?

Hi Miringeltje,

Can you please update the information about the Lokahi-ONE initiative in the first post of this thread? Please replace the first two phrases:
Quote:
We're now at 15,000 Lokahi-ONE signs for the Hawaii shows....still 30000 signs to go!

We have 16 GA volunteers and 1 reserved seat volunteer to hand out the signs the day of the show.
with the following phrases:
Quote:
We're now at 25,000 Lokahi-ONE signs for the Hawaii shows....still 13,000 signs to go!

We have 37 volunteers to hand out the signs the day of the show.
Thank you for letting people know about this on this board :-)

Hans

PS: We still need more volunteers, especially people with reserved seat. Please consider helping out:

Thanks!

I don't think there's anything stopping you from going to a ticketmaster outlet tomorrow morning and buying all the tickets you want.
