U2 at Lambeau Field?

hi, just wanted to throw this out there because i've been hearing some chatter about this, and now i just came across this site that confirms the same info i've been hearing.

this is obviously still a rumor and probably still a longshot, but it's weird that it's showing up on sites now:

They've left the final decision on whether to play at Lambeau up to Brett Favre...he has yet to make up his mind.

eventful is a crappy website that keeps sending me e-mails claiming that bruce springsteen will be playing in my crappy suburb, which has about as much of a chance of happening as i have selling out madison square garden.

u2 at lambeau field would contradict this post...

I spoke with a Live Nation rep today. he told me the following:
(1) As it stands, there are not going to be extra stadium shows in the US. He said that this MAY be the internal memo going around just to make sure they sell out the first dates. When I reminded him of the 4 day window per venue, he said he agreed but was told there wouldn't be additional shows.
(2) There are 10,000 GA tickets AT $45 each per show. Apparently there are two GA prices, at least for Boston, $45 and $55. He doesn't know any more than that.
(3) U2 is doing arena shows in the US after the stadiums.

I assume Live Nation and U2 are really only talking about 2009 right now, and even that is mixed up.

Lambeau Field could be credible for 2010, as well as some of the other dates the site has listed. Obviously, this is all speculation, but everything so far points to U2 playing the U.S. in the summer of 2010, and early leaks are not unheard of.

If they ever play at Lambeau, I'm totally starting the GA line across the street at Kroll's.

U2 has already planned it's southern hemiphere tour 20 months from now. They don't know if that includes Oz.

Stuff like Fenway have to be booked 2 years in advance if there is limit to number of concerts per year.
If they pick the dates early enough they don't have to worry when football games are played.

Oh, I know. I was just referring to the person who said they talked to a Live Nation representative. I meant as far as the public is concerned, LN and U2 are only talking 2009.

We all know of the famous foreshadowing of Popmart's Sydney date during ZooTV.

what's really cool is that this would be the first concert ever played at Lambeau Field. for the most part, this has only housed football games.
