U2 maybe coming to CALGARY!!!

There are rumours going around that U2 might come to Calgary Sept. 29th and 30th!!!! The Calgary SUN posted an article about this and it is also on u2tours.com with other possible dates. Maybe the online petition payed off? or maybe u2 is doing this on purpose as a conitingency plan if the 3rd leg sells fast.

All Alberta fans: our prayers might be answered!!!!

Any date conflicts with the Calgary Flames?

Does this mean that the Edmonton GA ban is still in effect? I think there was a problem at a HOLE concert in the mid-90's.

Who cares about hockey, I hope U2 does come to Alberta. It would be great if they played in Calgary and Edmonton!!!!

Well i had a petition going i really hope that somehow it will pay off and U2 will be coming to Calgary for sure.

I don't think there should be a problem with hockey at all... i have been in touch with people at the Saddledome and they had told me that it was in their best interest to have as many events possible since there won't be any hockey due to the NHL issues... so i am really excited and positive that it will happen..

Fingers, arms, legs and everything crossed people!!!!!!!

Fuck that would rule. I'd get a nice send off before heading to New York in October to see them. I was pretty shcoked when I first found out they were passing over Alberta considering how well the last two tours sold in Edmonton and calgary. This would be great news.

GA ban? Odd I don't recall anything of a GA ban. Unless you are speaking of large-scale shows (more than 2,000 people) but I am positive GA still goes through at Rexall Place. Green Day is coming in May and the floor is GA. I'm sure there may be others at Rexall Place which will be GA (Crue perhaps? Or others before...) As for Hole playing I thought they only hit Edmonton the EDGEfest tour at Commonwealth Stadium. If that was their only time in Edmonton (which I attended) I don't recall any GA problems...since the whole idea of EDGEfest was for it to be GA.

Although I may be ignorant and not be aware of anything like that in Edmonton. Not trying to get in an argument or anything, I would just be surprised if there was a GA-ban in Edmonton since I haven't heard of anything like that. There may have been one in the past for larger venues that I could have missed since I usually tend to go for the smaller shows.

Regardless - I have been quite excited since those 3rd leg rumors came out a few days back. Since then I have checked U2.com and Ticketmaster several times a day with hopes of seeing an update on there. More dates the better and if there are some in Calgary then I will be one happy camper.

...five weeks minus a day until their first show in Vancouver

There is no GA ban in Edmonton. Motley Crue, Green Day and Velvet Revolver are all GA on the floor and if those shows can do it no doubt U2 can do it. I mean I have GA tickets for both Motley Crue and Velvet Revolver next week so....

Alright, so it was just a regular Internet misunderstanding...

And now for something completely off-topic, that Velvet Revolver show is going to be amazing on Tuesday. It is starting my five concerts in eight week extraveganza (even though there are a LOT more coming into Edmonton they don't jive with my schedule). Looking forward to seeing Three Days Grace live as well - their album is quite entertaining.

EDIT: Although I will be at Velvet Revolver my mind will be wondering how those in San Diego are holding up with their Vertigo Tour kick off...

Sep29 and 30 are the NHL preseason. Actual season doesn't start until mid-october.

I have a good feeling about this.
