July 15 - Parc des Sports Charles Ehrmann - Nice

I'm a Boots member & am hoping to get seats for Nice during the pre-sale. I was wondering if anyone has seen a seating chart for the Nice venue, Stade Charles Erhmann?

As shown below (from http://360.u2.com/images/largevenues/lg_nice.jpg), the layout for this venue is quite different from most other venues so far, centre of the field. So the side seats are further away, the front seats a little closer, & there's really no rear seating.

Also this venue is totally unique & is often used in conjunction with the ajoining Palais Nikaia (the building at the bottom of this image) for large events, like previous U2 shows & Madonna. If this happens there will be plenty of rear seating. Not sure whether this would work with the 360 stage though.

at u2.com & livenation.fr the venue is described as "Stade Charles Erhmann", for www.ticketnet.fr it's "Nikaia Stade Ch. Ehrmann", which would hint to the use of Palais Nikaia.

These 2 scenerios would totally change the price structure at this venue. This is all hurting my head any help would be much appreciated.

Looks similar like Milano. Actually Nice and San Siro only with the stage in the middle.... Wonder why they didnt do elsewhere as well to get the real 360 degrees experience...

?

Glasgow was "sideways" in 2005 but they're using the endzone setup in 2009. Figure THAT out.

I'm going to this gig got my tickets today. i cant seem to attached the image with the layout of this arena, but if you send me your email address i would be happy to send.

The 3 Category prices are.

166.50 Eur
87.50 Eur
34.50 Eur

I got the cat2 GA seating ones for 87.50, I thought they where standing but when confirmation came through it said stated unresvered seating. They must be no standing for this gig.
Must be a outdoor all seating arena gig.
DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THE CAPACTIY WILL BE?

It's a very large field, soccer pitch, surrounded by an athlectics track, with long jump pits etc. Much bigger than say, the San Siro.The seating capacity is very small though. From Stade Charles-Ehrmann - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, "the seated capacity of the stands is only 8,000. This capacity can be boasted to 50,000 when using the field & in conjunction with the Palais Nikaia" (see the images at Le Palais Nikaia. If there was rear seating they are using the Palais, & the capacity would be around 50,000. But I'm not sure if they can use this setup with the 360 stage, as it's massive, & may not be seen from inside the hall. This would reduce the capacity to 40,000 I guess.

Here's some links to the Vertigo tour at Nice. That's a very big GA crowd!

Very weird that it said unreserved seating! Maybe it was a mistake, I'd really expect it to be GA standing, like everywhere else.

U2 played here on Vertigo tour, here are the statistics for that show:

56. Nice, France : August 5, 2005 : Parc des Sports Charles-Ehrmann : GROSS $3,548,702 : ATTENDANCE 51,900 : SHOWS 1 : SELLOUTS 1


So, there will be at least 51,900 people at the show, if not more, depending on whether the new stage set up free's up more seats in this particular venue.
