Live Nation U2 Survey

Has anyone else gotten this?

Help shape the concert experience!

Take our U2 survey for a chance to win tickets to a future Live Nation concert!

We want to hear your thoughts and experiences about U2. Your feedback helps us to create unforgettable live music experiences for you, the fan.

Please click on the link below and answer the brief questions to be automatically entered into the drawing!


The survey asked me about my U2 concert buying habits, including how much I'd be willing to pay for tickets in certain sections, how many people I'd take with me and if I'd be interested in watching broadcasts of live shows at clubs.

Sort of interesting. I wonder if U2 is in the very, very, very early stages of planning a world tour and is trying to feel the kids out. I was also thinking that maybe U2 might be following Madonna's rumored path and leaving the big labels for a deal with Live Nation/Clear Channel.

I just got this in my email, and completed the survey. It made me at the same time, just thinking that this has to mean U2 is at least in the planning stage of the next tour. And that my friends, is a very good thing.

Got it as well, very interested to read all the concert footage/video questions. I hope that more than production they focus on the whole concert experience for us. Travelling, downloading concerts, queuing, whatever.

I was really excited about the idea of watching live concerts via remote at small clubs with other fans.

Got it, filled it out. I'm afraid I went cheap on the prices I'd be willing to pay for stadium seats.

Maybe they'll pay attention and will have cheaper tickets next time.

I went on the cheap for the tickets too, because come on now, we're not millionares and SOMEONE has to fill a whole stadium hahah. And no way would I pay the same price for the front of the floor section and the back...are they nuts?

But I was intriegued by the survey as well and immediately thought it must have something to do with a future u2 tour. bring back the days of zoo and popmart i say!

Personally I hate the livenation monopoly and I would probably not like an exclusive arrangement between them and u2, but...what do I know?

I got it too and filled it out. Was surprised at the range they gave for what seemed to be GA.

Just getting it was very exciting though.

Having not seen the questions, and not going to see them due to not being in the US - does it actually seem like something that might be related to U2, or do you think it might be more generic questions about a large scale tour with "insert mega-act here" as an example, and that happens to be U2. Or perhaps you have all signed up for info about U2 and they're just using that database. Perhaps if you'd signed up for the Rolling Stones you'd get the exact same questions, just with the Rolling Stones in place of U2. Would be interesting to find out whether other people are getting this for other artists, or if any of you receive multiples. If it's just U2 fans getting U2 questions, and no-one else is getting this be it for U2 or anyone - then perhaps it is something directly U2 tour related.

a lot of the questions were related to U2, i.e. what albums and named all of the albums so you could tick which ones, what other U2 stuff do you own, do you own a u2 lithograph etc. Seemed pretty u2 related to me anyway. Although there were also general concert going questions also.

I went with the cheapest ticket prices for each category. If I were honest, I’d pay more than I said. But it someone is asking, what’s the harm in going low?

I agree with opaltranquility. I'd love to see the boys in a
PopMart/ZooTv type production. At US$150+ to see them,
I do not think I could afford it though.

The Vertigo tour floor tickets were $51 and up. The show was
lovely. It wasn't huge and awe-inspiring like the ones I
mentioned above, but it was well priced/affordable
- for both fans and the band (in regards to production
costs).

The band, especially Larry, have regularly expressed
that they do not like to increase ticket prices and
hate it when their fans a forced to go to ticket brokers to
get tickets. I cannot imagine how much money the brokers
will get; those in my area were getting $350+ for floor tickets
to Vertigo. Wow!

I hope that if they are partnering with Live Nation this will not
negatively impact their prices or change their philosophy on
how they treat their fans or sell their tickets. However, it is my
experience that when a big name act signs on with them
things get crappy - usually at the expensive of the fans.
I would definitely not be happy about that. So unhappy,
in fact, that I might start writing letters to Principal
to let them know.

If they want to put on a large-scale production, they should
ask Apple to co-sponsor. They partnered with them before,
and it would allow the band to offset the production costs
that are incurred with a production the size of PopMart. This
would allow the band to put on the show they wanted
while reducing the per ticket cost.

Sorry for the long post, but this has really gotten me fired up.

And this just in: Even Madonna is close to inking a
deal with the [S]devil[/S] Live Nation.

"This would allow the band to put on the show they wanted while reducing the per ticket cost." What if U2 had actually wanted the past two tours to be significantly less prop-dependent than ZooTV or Popmart? Seems like I heard that the band wanted people to focus more on the music and not on the big screens and props. That's just my .02 .

That would be great. I hope that's what they decide to do. If so,
they would a) want to do it in a venue type that would not
take away from the music (i.e. broad spaces like stadiums
that cause sound to "float" instead of being concentrated and
b) make the setup be more intimate to draw more attention
to what matters - the music. That would also mean
putting on a production that would cost less. I
think arenas would accommodate that better.

Sorry, adrobw. I'm not trying to piss on your statement. I'm
just making another comment. Please don't take offense to
my pissing & moaning.
