Red Zone

Moderators, feel free to edit or delete this thread, if this info turns out to be wrong.

But right now, it appears Red Zone tickets are available in the pre-sale, so I thought it would be good to start a thread for it.

Package contents: The (RED) Zone gives you access to an exclusive VIP area directly adjacent to the Stage with special amenities and dedicated staff, all while raising money in support of (RED) and the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa. Special features include:

Barricaded area adjacent to the Stage
Extremely limited capacity
VIP Entrance to the venue
Collectors souvenir ticket
An opportunity to be selected for a pre-show backstage tour
Access to the (RED) Zone refreshment stand
A portion of the proceeds from your purchase supports the (RED) campaign

ChargedVT in the main thread said it was 219 pounds plus fees for the London show. Which appears to translate to $343 US at current exchange rate?

Which is waaay more than RZ ended up for many of the venues on 360. Pretty sure I got several RZ on 360 for the initial bid price of $150?

So at the end of the day, is it safe to say Red Zone is a better option than GA(factoring out price)

Well, good question. It APPEARS, but I haven't seen any official confirmation, that the Red Zone is around the B stage. Assuming that is true, when members of the group are on the B stage or the catwalk near the B stage you will be the closest to the band. But when they are on the main stage (again, assuming the layout is being interpreted accurately) you will essentially be at the very back of the GA section. Kind of odd this time around, but I suppose the best they could do given the layouts.

Do you get a seat in the Red Zone, or is it essentially just a blocked off GA section?

hmmm...

U2 Ticket Sales 101 - 12/4/14 and onward

if it is the B stage, why would section 110 and 106 be at the highest category?

so confusing. i personally might re-think RZ tix if this is the case but not like we will know before we have to buy...FUCK

I agree, just one of the many aspects of this rushed pre-sale I find to be very annoying.

To answer the question above yours re seats - I believe there were some fold down seats at the back of the RZ area that could be used BEFORE the concert started, but couldn't be used during the concert - not sure if that was enforced. Not sure that is the same here, but my assumption is that it is intended to be a roped off standing room only GA.

I never sat in Red Zone, but I've done GA. There isn't a bad seat in GA in my eyes. I much prefer just to be there and hear the band. Sure I'd like to sit on Bono's lap, but it's pretty amazing no matter what you choose.

We won't know until we see the first show on how the stage works. It is confusing. I assume the band will spent 85% of their time near the Red Zone and then move around the stage at certain points... instead of a circle we get a line.

Very annoying to say the least.

yes. they did have fold down seats in the RZ but as i recall, the RZ's were not full and you could pretty much fold down the seat, which was on the back side of the RZ's if you wanted during the show. at least in YYZ.

i hope you are right but then again, RZ was pretty far away from main stage for 360 on the claws edges...

That could just be based on sight lines/angles where 110 and 106 can be sold without being listed as "rear stage" whereas at the other end the main stage is larger/wider and therefore 4 sections get tagged as rear.

Just got RZ for Boston first night. Yes, you can get RZ direct - for $350. Tried for seats first - got 2 in front row, but Ticketbastard - yes it's still that - "failed" in my first 4 attempts for tickets. My friend is still trying for 2nd night.
