Yay!! thank you for posting that

If they come to Raleigh I may end up selling my Charlottesville tickets once I have the Raleigh tickets, because I'd have to call in sick to see them in Charlottesville(we can't take vacation in October)

We're kind of in the same boat. Taking our 16 year old and 13 year old, but really don't want to take them out of school for this, not to mention incur additional time/cost of travelling.

Anyhow, we've just got to get them to get this announcement out and get the presale going - I have a feeling it's closer than "next few weeks".

I am hoping for the Raleigh show so badly, I live about 10 minutes from the stadium. If it comes I will be going to 3 u2 shows in less than a week. Charlottesville, Raleigh, Atlanta!

I'm also really hoping this show happens. I'm flying out to go to the Charlottesville show with my dad, and we're hoping to go to Raleigh too. My travel plans are on hold until they make an announcement about this show.

can't believe they would appear in such a small venue.

but I live in Greensboro, 50 min drive from Raliegh, so I'll be there.

?? Carter-Finley's capacity, I believe, is 60,000 not including lawn. That puts the venue right in line (more or less) with average venue sizes for this tour. It's certainly not the smallest stadium announced for the tour so far.

Just got an email from UNC-Chapel Hill's atheltic department...Came with same picture posted in this article On the Beat: David Menconi on music - More "unofficial" confirmation of U2's Raleigh date | newsobserver.com blogs. I just want this to be officially announced...

Here is email:

Musictoday is the official pre-registration site for the Raleigh U2 concert. It is a secure site and any information gathered will be used for presale purposes only.
Presale pre-registration ends on April 9th. Within a few days after the sign up period ends, emails will be sent explaining the pre-sale, including the date and time. No specific information about the pre-sale is available at this time.

Visit U2.com for the virtual concert experience and complete tour information.

Odd. So, Wolfpack Club people are getting this e-mail, but so are people from UNC athletic dept? Very strange. Putting that aside, in general I wonder if, associated with the holdup, there's a change in date/venue (e.g. maybe Kenan?). Looking at Carolina's home game schedule, though, doesn't look like it fits.

Interesting, presale ending 4/9, seems like it should be announced on u2.com pretty soon then and a presale for u2.com members around easter?

Oh man, I am just hoping hoping HOPING for this show to be real. I'm about two hours away from Raleigh so it would be very convenient! I've been there several times to see U23D in the IMAX, and it'll be great to see the real thing there!!!

I'm saving my presale code for this show so it better happen! I'm probably gonna try and grab some Charlottesville tix from the general sale tomorrow too.

Do we know which stadium this is at exactly?

I think the note said "presale pre-registration" ends 4/9, and indicates that instructions would come out shortly after that. I have a feeling this presale (for Wolfpack Club and/or whomever else) will be concurrent with the U2.com one; if pre-registration for this mysterious additional presale ends 4/9, I'd expect the presale to be the week of 4/13 (maybe u2.com one on 4/14 - 16?). Though I'd like it if we could get in before the football fans (sorry!) next week like you're thinking.
