No Bay Area Dates?

Apparrantly it looks like there will be no Bay Area dates at least in the 2009 portion of the tour.Maybe they will revisit Ca in 2010 but I want to see U2 this fall.I wonder if this is due to the Bay Area truly not having a venue to house this kind of production stage with the audience all the way around.I notice they are playing alot of NFL only staduims vs Oakland Staduim where they house the A's and the Raiders.SF has AT T park where the Giants play but U2's manager Paul has said they wont be playing baseball staduims.Though there is Candlestick Park where the 49ers play.Is that big enough?

That doesn't sound right. Maybe they are still trying to figure out the venue? There are college stadiums that would work, Memorial Stadium or Stanford Stadium. You just have to work around the college's schedules.

Otherwise, roadtrip! Pasadena is nice in October

Your absolutely right.I usually go to LA once a year and it's usually in the spring or the fall.I can imagine Breathe under the nice fall night.

Honestly there must be Bay Area dates. They either haven't figured them out yet, or they will be on the next leg.

If I remember correctly, Vegas stadium is much smaller than the Rose Bowl. Which could be a good thing

from wiki:

Quote:
The stadium was completed in 1971 at a cost of $3.5 million. It was originally known as Las Vegas Stadium. The name wacases changed to the Las Vegas Silver Bowl in 1978 and then Sam Boyd Silver Bowl in 1984 and finally in April 1994 to Sam Boyd Stadium. The seating capacity was 15,000 from 1971 until 1977. The capacity was raised to 32,000 in 1978 and then to 36,800 in 1999.
The Rose Bowl is like 100k - I was there 2 yrs ago for the Rose Bowl - HUGE.

Me. I live in Sacramento.

I was planning to drive down to LA anyway, but I was really hoping for SF/Oakland too. They can't just skip all of northern CA, can they? There must be at least one show here on the next leg.

I'm also hoping they'll add a second LA show. If I'm going to be driving seven hours, I at least want to see more than one show.
