3 August - Veltins-Arena, Gelsenkirchen

Good news for Gelsenkirchen!

just saw the new update for the tour on U2.com's website that they will play Gelsenkirchen at Veltins-Arena on 3 August but as yet, no date for the public sale nor the pre-sales. I imagine, logically at least, its on next Friday 27th March or can anyone confirm this?

hmm... makes me think there will be a couple more dates coming along in the next week or so including 2nd dates in Barcelona, possibly Zagreb, Wembley....

Let the good times roll!

YES! I'll be there. Even though it's hard to get there from Vienna by plane and train

This is correct.

But I can`t tell you something about the prices, maybe 5-10€ more expensive as the same category in Amsterdam.

thanks, that's something to start with.
Do you know if it's customary for the stage there to be on the rightside? or could that still change?

The stage at the Veltins Arena is always standing in the right corner of the field, it will be the same place like Vertigo 2005.
I remember, that just one German Band called Pur had a stage in the middle of the field, all the others which played there had their stages in the right corner.

The seats behind the stage should be the best ones, but also the most expensive ones. I don't know where the stage will be located.

How are you people planning on going to Gelsenkirchen? Via plane, train? I've been there before, but I went with someone else, and this time I have to go by myself. Any ideas how to get there best? I might take a plane to Duesseldorf and then go via train. I hope there is a chance to stay directly in Gelsenkirchen, it's not a big town or something.

I *think* that the stage is in the middle, like in Milan. There was a plan on u2.com the day they announced the tour. Anyone else remembering that? ...cause I could be wrong...

I can`t imagine, that will be a place for the stage like Milan there. The VeltinsArena is an Indoor Arena for concerts, with an closed roof. The big difficulty for a stage in the centre of the field is the enormous huge stage for the first and an big videocube, which is installed under the roof. And I think, this was the problem for the late announcement of the date, not the soccer schedule. One thing is also, that you can find a standing tribune in the left corner and a lot of the cheap tickets will selling in this area.
BTW: The capacity for soccergames is around 62.000, for U2`s 360° Show plus space for around 10.000 GA visitors.
