perhaps some people who 'leave' are trying to move down to a lower section or better seating?

yea i'm guessing they're either moving to better seats or they got the tickets for free from some sort of business thing and don't really like the band and just decided that it was time to go.

I doubt these jokers were moving to better seats. They wouldn't even stand up to see around everyone else who was standing up.

i'm gonna go with the "they don't really like u2 but got the tickets for free and figured what the hell" excuse then.

happens all the time at sporting events... so why not concerts, too

What pisses me off about these situations is the fact that other cool, die-hard U2 fans may not have been able to get tickets...

it's just a fact of the ticketing industry. the tickets that are given to businesses and indursty types, etc. etc. were never on sale to the public in the first place.

when they end up not being claimed or used, then they'll go back into the pool... normaly ending up in ticket drops online or day of show at the box office.

happens at just about every single event at a major venue... be it a sporting event or a concert.

I hate seeing yuppies who don't know ANY of the songs sitting down because their poor feet are tired or something.

Although I shouldn't complain, one of my shows was a result of "giveaways" to businesses and my friends' parents didn't want to go. They were damn good tickets, too.

Perhaps they had another commitment (like kids) and had to leave at a certain time. I've had to leave things because I needed to be home at a certain time before.

Or maybe they just didn't like 'em.

I have to leave early if I have to catch the train home and the last train out leaves before the concert is over. Maybe that's it

Some people also always have to beat traffic, they don't like to get stuck in it.

Has to be they were really sick, either physically or mentally..

Otherwise it's the "thought they were seeing someone else" syndrome..

Which makes them stupid.. and sick...
that's lethal..

Really? At all the concerts I went to they specifically held the local trains/transportation. I'd think the money they lost doing that would be a lot less pain than the inconvenience of thousands of people stranded on the streets...
