Ellipse vs Inner Zone vs testicles...?

Could someone please explain the Ellipse vs inner zone intricacies

Is it all about venue size? Which will we have at which shows this leg?

Ellipse doesn't exist.

Arrive really early and get in the inner zone.

Don't make the think about testicles.

The ellipse was used at the indoor arena shows on the first and third leg.

The inner zone is used at the outdoor stadium shows. That's what we have.

Thanks guys I get the feeling the whole Ellipse thing is driving you a bit nuts, but more burning questions...

So is the inner zone still sectioned off by a catwalk? How does the B-Stage work?

I need diagrams!

There are two b-stages, with a gap in the middle. It tooks like two arms coming out from the stage.

There's a barrier further back in the GA section to divide up the crowd, essentially for crowd management reasons.

Here's a diagram for Brisbane:

WAIT!! I'm so confused!!! I have a GA ticket but the person who gave us that diagram suggested that the GA area is further back than the front section?? Please tell me this is not true!!! I want to be right at the stage (that's why I'm camping out). Can I do this with GA tik???

So... The million dollar question...

Which songs do they play on which part of the stage? (Assuming the setlist will be largely identical to the last leg)

I am pretty sure its all GA...and that 4000 or so can fit in the inner circle but only 1000 tickets have been sold guaranteeing people entry. So 3000 people with GA tickets should be able to make it in. I think the main reason perhaps is for crowd control. Although no such inner circle fence is present on the Adelaide stadium diagram and it is a much larger field as it is designed for Aussie Rules football. I wonder why Brisbane had these special inner circle tickets? You are saying you are camping out then you will make it in no worries.
