So the Aug. 2 date at Gillette is up on Ticketmaster now, and there is a presale going on before the official sale date of this Saturday.

I tried the presale, but the seats were just ok. I found one way back on the field, and another in the lower section on the other side of the stage. So much for that.

I'll obviously see what comes up on Saturday, but methinks this will be like it was back in '03 when the drops were plentiful a few days before at both Gillette and Fenway.

The main poster at Badlands got his boxers all in a bundle about Cincinnati. I I cannot endorse this opinion about an epic show.

More soon
I hope,

I'd say I rank Magic as this:
1. Gypsy Biker
2. Long Walk Home
3. Last to Die
4. Devil's Arcade
5. Girls in Their Summer Clothes
6. Radio Nowhere
7. Livin' in the Future
8. Your Own Worst Enemy
9. Magic
10. I'll Work for Your Love
11. You'll Be Comin' Down

Songs 1-7 are incredibly close, though, and I also really like 8 and 9. Only the last two would I be willing to skip.

I'll Work For Your Love is the weakest point of the album, I think. After that, I'd put Your Own Worst Enemy next (even though it's decent) because it ends way too quickly. Another solo of some sort at the end and you've got a real winner there.

Livin' In The Future, You'll Be Comin' Down, Radio Nowhere, and Gypsy Biker would be in the middle.

Long Walk Home, Last To Die, Devil's Arcade, Magic, Girls In Their Summer Clothes, and Terry's Song are all perfect.

Most likely.

I'm hoping Key Arena puts up some info about how the GA stuff works. I'm pretty sure they had it online prior to the U2 concerts in '04.

... I did find the rules for the Bradley Center for last week's Milwaukee show. I'm assuming they're likely the same for each show.

So, some questions:

Are there are only 100 wristbands? Do wristbands guarantee entry into the pit? Ergo, if I get a wristband, I'm in the pit but the lottery will depend on how close I am?

Wow, if that's true, I'll take any spot I get - I figured I'd be one of 600 or so hoping for a close spot.

(Give me good news, people. The short person wants a good shot at being able to see! )

Second question: let's say I get my wristband and come back later, before the doors open. Even if there are people already in line and the drawing has already occurred, I can find my numerical place in line and take it, no matter if someone else was there longer, right? If I'm number 15 and the line starts with number 15, if I waltz up 5 minutes before the doors open, I'm right in front?

Nope that won't work. From previous concert experience, ,you will have to salsa up just before doors open.

I'll have you know it took me a full three reads to get your joke.

I'm a little slow tonight.

Usually the lamer they are, they harder they are to get.

Wristbands do not guarantee pit admittance. Your number is put into the lottery to get into the pit.

The general procedure has been the same for all the shows.

Here's the breakdown:

-Wristbands are given out between 2pm and 5pm, there is no limit on how many wristbands can be handed out. (My opinion, either be right at the front for wristband handout or way in the back, it seems to be higher numbers that are picked, so if you're in the front, you're in, if you're in the back, you're in.)

-Number drawing is at the specified location at 5:15pm

-Approximately 500 people get into the pit, but it does fluctuate depending on the venue and fire codes

-Pit numbering works like this: say 1000 wristbands are given out and number 900 is drawn. You are then lined up from 900-1000, and then it starts over at 1-400 as the pit winners.

-If you aren't a pit winner, it does pay to stick around because you will get to go in before the GA people who didn't get wristbands.

Thank you!

I'm a worrier about stuff like this - I like to know everything I can rather than showing up and winging it.

I'll keep checking for Key Arena specific info, but it gives me an idea.

You'll Be Comin' Down is a world premiere. It was the last song from Magic that hadn't been played, so this is the first time ever for it.

About time.

At least he makes an effort to get all the songs off the album played live.

Yes I'm looking at you U2!
