Philly Fans - What Are You Going to Do?

Are you going to New York? Going to DC? Or are you like me and only could have gone to a show in Philly?

Seriously, I'm furious with U2. Not that it means shit, but this is fucking bullshit. Philly's the fifth biggest market in America! What the fuck?

I really dont think they are done adding dates yet.

If they are, they will have many MANY angry fans.

I think they'll add dates to cities already named when shows sell out, but I think any cities that aren't already mentioned aren't getting shows.

That cant be because there is no way they would completely skip Northern California.

New York City doesnt have a stadium fo U2's new stage setup. They have to pop it up in Jersey. NYC is too cramped to have a Stadium

the Philly show could still be added... u2 plays Giants Stadium on Thurs Sept 24th and then in DC on Tues Sept 29th, so a Sat 9/26 or Sun 9/27 date is still possible...
we shall see

East Rutherford is southern New York City in the same way that Camden is east Philadelphia. It's only legal stuff that prevents it from being the same thing (silly state lines and whatnot).

If they were playing Camden I'd be joyous right now. It's the same thing.

the more i think about it, the more i think that it's probably not up to u2 for skipping philly. either conflict with the linc, stupid venue management or contract restrictions, maybe? i haven't heard of livenation doing concerts at the linc or wachovia center, have you? whenever livenation held a concert, it was always at camden tweeter center (or whatever it's called nowadays...)

the linc has been used for concerts... the first event there was a springsteen concert and kenny chesney sells it out every summer...
has to be some sort of hold up with the nfl and the eagles

I can't believe this.....

Honestly, how can you name dates at Boston, Giants Stadium (NY/NJ), and D.C. and not have Philly along the way? It just does not make sense. I think it very possible that the Eagles schedule for 2009 is playing into the non annoucement of a philadelphia date if the tour is to stick to football stadiums. I hope they do add a date as was suggested on the 26th or 27th or that they return in the spring/summer/fall or 2010. This band will not forget this city.
