Only "true" fans are entitled to rail!

I am almost sick to my stomach reading the air of entitlement so many "fans" have posted, whining about the "possibility" (not necessarily the likelihood) that they won't get a spot on the rail. If Bono read some of this whining he'd probably retch on himself as well.

First of all, even if the RZ takes the entire catwalk rail, that doesn't mean GA won't get good spots (or even rail for that matter, as RZ may end short of the front of the stage. Second of all, for a $75 ticket, rail or no rail, you'll be maybe 10-15 feet from the band at some point in the arena.

I've read so many posts of people complaining and threatening to cancel their tour plans? That is so fucking rich.

Newsflash: Most people who bought Red Zone are also die hard fans. Anyone notice RZ sold out almost instantaneously for every show?

Get a grip people. I met so many good, kind, caring people while seeing this band all over the country. It is disheartening to see the whiny, complaining, air of entitlement that reared its ugly head today.

Yep. I have GA for multiple shows, and if the RZ is indeed the whole length of the catwalk on both sides....I don't really care.

The only thing that doesn't add up from that red line on the floor (and I know all this is conjecture) is the amount of RZ tickets that would have had to been sold to fill that space. No way the band wouldn't want that packed, and that would be a ton more RZ tickets than the 100/venue that I've seen speculated.

I've done RZ a few times, and part of the experience is that it was never anything remotely close to full. You could show up at show time and still be right behind someone on the RZ rail.

I agree, by the way. It's not great that the floor plan wasn't accurate when tickets went on sale, but as Headache said yesterday, there are no guarantees with GA - maybe they'll do a lottery again. Who knows?

Agreed. The SJ layout showed RZ at 50 per side, but I would venture a guess that they will either release more RZ (maybe as many as 100) and will also allow "guest-listers" into RZ.

The Rail? Who Gives a FF about the rail? Im just mad (soooo mad) that i won't be able to use Boners private bathroom this time around. Ive grown quite accustomed to pranking him with an upper decker just before intermission. Yes, i know people who know people.

I agree. I only have RZ because I could not pull a GA in the general sale for the second night. RZ finally came up. I paid less for RZ than the price of most resale GA tickets. Im not rich by any means just been waiting for my favorite band to tour again.

I couldn't have said it better my self! Quit your whining and crying wah wah.. Go and enjoy the show! You are getting those tickets much cheaper then seating. So don't complain if you don't get rail! Life is too short to worry about such silly things!

And of course, the GA/RZ tickets are closer to the stage than any seat is, so...

Hey am I the only one who sees the RZ as being special sure but not exactly "front row" special? Look at where the drum kit is located. That's the stage proper. The rest is just catwalk, no?

Yeah, on my GA show I'll be heading for the "South" side, near-ish the front, cos that'll be in front of Edge

GA looks tiny. Where ever you end up on the floor will be good. Whether that's behind RZ or not.

Perhaps someone miscalculated how much room there would be left around the b-stage and they had to move RZ a bit (fire code restrictions amd all)?

Of course, they are going to release more RZ. Why do you think these pics were leaked? Those greedy bastards Kidding

Maybe there will be no RZ per side. Just one RZ on one side (for RZ and guestlisters). Full GA, no RZ on the other side?

Once the fences and barriers are up, we'll be able to tell better.
