Pittsburgh Please!

So I got excited when I saw a Pittsburgh show on the leaked list... then the legit list comes out and it's nowhere to be found. Arrgghhh... Heinz field would be a GREAT place for this show with the city as a backdrop. Let's hope a date that hasn't been announced weasels it's way in there somehow.

I think it's going to be extremely tough for this to go down one reason is because the Pitt Panthers play on the field and so do the Steelers. I also think that since that field is real grass they can't risk having U2 play there and damage the field from the stage, which is why it's probably a gurantee they will be here in June or July of 2010.

If they add a show in PA, I have a hard time believing it's going to be Pittsburgh over Philly. Maybe next summer.

As long as they play here at some point in the tour, I will be happy.

They'll get there eventually. One of their crew is from Pittsburgh(BP Fallon?).

It could be the NFL schedule or it could be uncertainty over folks from a very blue collar city buying 8,000 $250 tickets and 25,000 $100 tickets for a concert in 2009.

Yeah, ever since they originally came to Pittsburgh, I believe they've never failed to come back on subsequent tours, so I see no reason that won't continue. We just might get them later than other cities.

If you google U2 heinz field and click the first link, it gives a date of July 6th 2010. I disregarded the time but the date is interesting since they are coming back to North America in June-July 2010.

I wonder what US city gets the July 4th show? They could also play Toronto/Canada on July 1st.
