What a ridiculous post from Bonosgirl84.

MTEdge is correct... the MGM and the other casinos regularly hold back THOUSANDS of tickets to popular events, in order to dole them out to favored patrons (ie. those that lose the most money at their gaming tables).

This is nothing new, everyone who knows anything about Vegas knows this, except Bonosgirl84.

As far as Vegas crowd stereotypes, once again, Bonosgirl84 pops off about something she obviously knows nothing about... 4U2play said he lived in Vegas and went to a bunch of different shows, so one can probably assume that he might know a bit more about the typical Vegas crowd than Bonosgirl84.

Whether New York or LA crowds exhibit similar stereotypes is immaterial, try to stick to the subject.

Finally, comparing a Dublin U2 show to a Las Vegas U2 show is absurd, at best. Hopefully, that does not need further explanation.

Hahahaha!!

Nice!

Good job, Bonosgirl84, you represent your city well.

Hopefully, angry passionate U2 fans like you will fill up the MGM in November, instead of the normally crappy Vegas crowds that attend these big shows.

Someone give her a ticket, for goodness sakes.

Oh, look what I found -- another person describing how terrible Las Vegas concert crowds are:

"... I am concerned that there will be a lot of people there who have received free tix from the casinos/ hotels, and think to themselves "U2? I've heard of them. We have nothing better to do - why not sit through at least part of their show?" (I've been to a couple of shows in Vegas where that was the case, and being surrounded by people who really didn't give a crap about what they were seeing definitely put a damper on things). "

So it's settled... I'm seeing them in Atlanta. Thanks for letting me know how much Miami and Vegas suck!

Ha Ha.

I hear you all. I went to the last Boston show, and I had the best time I've ever had at a U2 show. I mean they all get 10 out of 10, but this one got 20 out of 10 because they played Horses. Wild Horses. Again, holy shit.

Anyway... I was in a section that was very close to the stage. My friend who works at the Fleetcenter hooked me up (I still paid for them, he just got me access to tickets for a sold out show). So I was surrounded by other people who seem to have recieved tickets for "free". And it was the most lifeless section I've ever been apart of. The crowd was great, but the people around me, sucked.

But me and my friend, still had a blast, because I was dancing and singing with the other 17,000 happy real fans.

I guess I'm saying, every show has at least 10% of the crowd that is there for a reason that has nothing to do with loving U2.

Right now I"m leaning toward Miami since my girlfriend doesn't want to go to Vegas.

But knowing me, I'll do something stupid like go to both shows so I can see for myself, which city is the best to see U2 in. Research you understand.

thanks for the posts. My favorite being "fuck you." I love it when women swear.

The only time I was in Miami I was on a bus from the airport to the sea port so I can’t tell you much about it, but Vegas is a blast. So much to do in and around the city. Go for a couple of extra days, throw in a couple of U2 shows and you have a perfect weekend.

I think I'd go to Vegas if I had to choose. I like Miami, I think it's beautiful to stay on the bay there, but there's so much more to do in Vegas, great food, the MGM Grand is fun. I like going to concerts in Vegas because when you stay at the hotel you don't have to drive, you walk in and out, or now they have the monorail, stay at another hotel you can ride it to the MGM. Or if you stay at NY NY or Tropicana there's just an easy walkway to the MGM. Just being in the hotel before the concerts will be fun, maybe U2 will gamble or walk around.

And as far as the Vegas crowds being different, LOL, hardly. I think there's lots of people from this board that went last time at the TM, and before that to Pop, like I have. There was no difference, the only thing was there were an awful lot of rowdy drunk guys, and at Pop they trashed all the seats and all of us in the first 5 rows or so were bruised from them like we were beat up. But at the TM, the crowd was like any U2 show. Vegas has lots of drunk college guys on weekends, and they'll undoubtedly be there.

Oops...

Sorry for trashing your seat at PopMart Vegas. Actually, we did that during Rage Against The Machine's opening set, not during U2.

And, no, we weren't drunk, we were just having a good time destroying the first 30 rows of plastic chairs that some idiot decided was needed on the pitch instead of general admission at the biggest concert of the year.

Zack asked to see a little motion up front, so we obliged by dancing a lot... problem was, those chairs got in the way, so some of them were eliminated to make room for us.

Unfortunately, during the break between bands, all those pretty little chairs were set up again... naturally, then, the first 30 rows of "fans" ended up sitting for most of the concert... very lame.

Watch that DVD bootleg of the concert and see how passive the crowd is. I actually felt sorry for U2, especially after they screwed up a couple of songs and then had to play in front of a bunch of statues, many of whom were probably hypnotized by that gigantic TV screen and that lemon.

Just curious, have you gone to a U2 concert in Vegas or are you just defending the upstanding citizens of your city?

Miami will probably be cheaper, surprisingly...Florida is also very underplayed on this tour (only a few shows) and a gigantic gateway for central and south america (among other places) via air travel.
