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

Hopefully we'll be able to remove the question mark after the 9th very soon, but as the days go by, this seems less likely


Beautiful Day
Most U2 fans find what they're looking for: tickets to the band's April concert
By Diana Leone
dleone@starbulletin.com

IF YOU ARE READING this now and haven't bought tickets for U2's April 8 Aloha Stadium show, they're probably all gone.

Though several hundred $95 tickets remained when the stadium box office closed at 5 p.m. yesterday, sales via Ticketmaster phone lines and the Internet continue after hours, said Aloha Stadium spokesman Patrick Leonard.

Leonard didn't know yesterday if a second show on April 9 will be added. Show presenters did ask whether the stadium is available that day, he said, and it is. But no contract has been signed or announcement made by presenters The Next Adventure, RZO Productions, Live Nation and Shep Gordon, Leonard said.

The "cheap" seats (15,000 at $49.50 to stand on the field) and the pricey seats ($165) were gone within 20 minutes of sales opening at 9 a.m. yesterday, with about 150 people in line at Aloha Stadium.

Because of sales by Internet, phone and at other locations, some people who camped out at the stadium since 1 a.m. Saturday didn't get the tickets they wanted.

Maleko, a STAR 101.9 disc jockey who goes by one name, said he was shocked that he couldn't get $49.50 field tickets -- despite being in line all night. "You figured they'd have reserved something for the people at the stadium," he said, but he wasn't too bummed about upgrading to a $95 seat.

David Lucus of Salt Lake and Alvin Okubo of Mililani started their box-office camp-out at 4 p.m. Friday. The "die-hard U2 fans," got the seats they wanted for themselves and a group of friends with whom they work as volunteers for the Salvation Army.

Rema Wong, 35, said seeing U2 live was on her "life to-do list," but she thought she'd have to fly to the mainland to accomplish it. "I didn't think I'd get to see them here," said the Pauoa Valley resident.

The whole camping-in-line at the box office isn't what it used to be even a few years ago when the Rolling Stones or Michael Jackson appeared at Aloha Stadium, said usher captain Siaki Mane.

Michael Jackson took four hours to sell out two Aloha Stadium shows on his 1997 "History" tour, Leonard said. Those concerts were set up to seat 35,000.

By contrast, the U2 show puts 15,000 people standing on the field and 20,000 into stadium seats.

"I'm excited. I thought I'd never see them," said Lara Gerber, 44, who called herself a fan "from the beginning."

Gerber said she got the general admission ticket to stand, "so I can get right up to the stage." Her sister Kim Kalani and brother-in-law Ralph Palmiera, both 48, elected to pay $95 for seats.

The trio agreed that waiting in line since about midnight was not a hardship, since they played cards and even slept, then had a hot breakfast from the stadium concession stand.

"It was mellow," said Kalani. "There were a lot of people our age."

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.

This was buried in the the thread from last night but I picked up a GA at TM last night... if you have a chance (don't me on this! ), you should put me down as having both GA and a seat and Undecided as to which one at the moment...

It's really Out of Control, isn't it?

If things go on like this, thread 8 x 3 (aka 24) could be easily reached before April 8th.

geeez... this is speculation overload

no offense... but ETS is probably not monitoring the moment by moment developments of U2 or the possible schedule. So I doubt they are updating their website every few minutes, hours, etc. Until the final announcement was made for 4/8, they had no information/packages available. Again, I'm sure 4/9 is/was an option, and maybe is not likely at this time (sorry - just reality it seems). When final word comes from the band or their management, I'm sure all related websites will be updated (ETS, rocko & his boys, maybe even u2.com {j/k}).

Then again, when do we believe anything bfloxng says

It was just an observation, Miroslava.
As far as I'm concerned you can postwhore all you want.
I don't mind.

When it comes to tickets, believe you me, I pay attention to what Kevin has to say. He is a ticket machine

But like I said, until TM has a listing, all we can continue to do is speculate, pout, and moan

Still, interesting news.


ETA: Oh an miri, I was just playing as evidenced by the fact that I already have the most posts here.
