Hi tim

how are you mate?

i'm not panicing much about tickets, pretty confident of getting ga tickets for Glasgow Scotland. However I am seriously considering a trip across the pond to go see them at Philadelphia....if anyone can help me on that matter.

The only potential dates that I know are definate potentials are three extra Croke park dates.

They sold out two shows at RFK in 1992, they played RFK in 1997 and then they played MCI twice in 2001 and another show in Baltimore later.
They'll definitely make plans for a show or two.

I don't know if they're holding back on annoucing multiple dates in these cities because they are uncertain about the concert market or if it's related to health issues with the families of the band
If it's a marketing move, then expect an announcement next Monday for more shows added to the cities already on the schedule.

** Flips through the internet looking for more clues about concerts **

I feel gutted for Tania who like myself has been following the band for 20+ years. People forget how vast in size Australia actually is and I just hope that there is a west coast show for her. to put into context travelling to her nearest show is probably the equivalent of her having to travel from LA to Houston.

Hey Ewen! I'm doing good Thanks for being a gentleman when Tara decided to strip in the bar I appreciated that.

It wouldn't be too late to get one more u2.com account and thus securing two seats to Philly during the presale. I think it's worth the $40 investment. I don't know how purchasing will be handled internationally, so maybe you need to get an advocate here in the states. Don't know... you'll have to find someone willing to help you out over here. Maybe you can partner with someone who is low on cash, but lives here...
I'm going to have my hands full tomorrow, I have 4 memberships so that I don't have to put up with the masses at ticketmaster...

** Pours another cup of coffee... **

Good luck!

Hi Digsy,

that would be cool getting a group of us to meetup for Dublin. still no idea if we are still only allowed to buy tickets for one show. i might subscribe for another u2.com membership.

It's hard decision to be sure, which is why I have a credit card with a high limit

Let me know how the fanfire conversation goes, I'd be interested to know if they have any insight on these matters.

So we might have another one of us in Philly; Ewen?!! I hope so!!

I might, MIGHT have an extra ticket if my friend cannot go, but I won't know until probably the last minute.....so that doesn't help you much...

yeah tim, i only paid for one subscription because i thought it would be like the Propaganda days where we could buy tickets for two shows - but i don't want to bring all that up again, think people have already discussed all that in other threads. the thing that gets me wondering though is in the faqa at u2.com they say you can buy up to 8 tickets which gives me the sneeking suspicion that we'll will actually be able to buy tickets for more than one show with a single u2.com membership - i mean it makes better business sense for U2.com to do that because really how many people are going to want 8 tickets for one show - that's just asking for u2 fans to buy tickets in order to scalp/tout.
