considering u2 hasn't been in australia/nz in 8 years, i wonder why nobody did just a little to welcome them and show their appreciation.

Because showing up in record numbers isn't appreciative enough?

And yet Sydney had the second-highest attendance out of any city in the world on the Vertigo Tour. It was only beaten by Dublin.

So your point is redundant.

so many people and not a single one of them bothered to do something extra, other than just being there. that must have been a little disappointing to the band.

What exactly does that mean? The ratio of people in the crowd: Sydney residents, or it was just the second largest crowd in general?

Yeah, I'm not sure, because US cities all got indoor shows, which means the capacity is less. Dublin was played, what, four times? So was Philly in the two US legs, but in the 20-something thousand seat Wachovia Center. Dublin had Croke Park.

You have to factor that in too. So, being sold out is actually something to be noted about when there are three shows.

I agree.

I also don't see why people feel that an audience should do anything special for the band. People paid to be there, and the band performed. That's all you need. Yeah, it's cool if fans coordinate some sort of gesture, but if they don't...so?
