Columbus, Cleveland, Cincy, Louisville and Indianapolis are all within a 3 hour drive of my house, and have sizeable arenas. It'd be nice to be able to drive home after a show, even if that means getting in at 4am.

If Chicago can get 5 shows, surely one of those cities can get 1. They seem somewhat rigid on the multiple nights in one city, and I get it, that makes them more money. But surely they realize they'd be leaving money on the table by not doing single night stands.
If they were to continue in arenas next year I think they'd still try for markets where they could guarantee at least 2 night stands...not so much because of the varied shows thing they led us on about, but I think logistics and cost of humping that screen around would make them less inclined to do one night stands.

One - Bono´s inability to play guitar forced them to reinvent it a bit wth stripped down version that builds up at the end. If they will figure it out fully, it can be really great. One needed some fresh air for a long time.

Now that the two night concept was scraped I think there's a much better chance of one off dates in 2016

that said, they'll probably allude to one off dates, then when we start expecting a tour of rar(ely played c)ities, they'll switch it to zero dates.

2015 U2 Tour - General Discussion Thread VI :)

I'm trying to think of all the cities U2 could do multiple nights in that they aren't this year.

Philly, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Detroit, Toronto, NYC (in a non MSG venue), Las Vegas, San Diego, Los Angeles?, Seattle, Edmonton or Calgary, Minneapolis.

By not doing single nights, they'd be leaving out Portland, Salt Lake City, Kansas City, Omaha, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Oklahoma, Nashville, Tampa, Raleigh/Charlotte, Charlottesville, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Albany, Hartford, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Winnipeg, Ottawa, among others. Obviously they won't do all of those cities, but they could sell out 1 arena show in those cities. Most bands DO play those places when they tour, and U2 used to as well.

Hartford could probably do two nights, assuming they don't do 50 in Boston and NYC again.

The employee handing out GA line wristbands this morning said there is GA capacity for 2700 and only 2000 GA tickets sold.

2700? I think Vancouver was only 1600 or so. Really hoping the 2700 number isn't what it will be for most shows.

1,500 - 2,000 is the GA capacity for most concerts.

That can't be right at all. GA has been sold out since day 1 for both shows, and 2700 is way too many for a floor in an arena.

I agree it sounds like nonsens but he was adamant in those figures. Confident enough to tell the person in front of me that there were plenty of GA tickets left and it won't be very crowded tonight.

Just to inform: Edge confirmed that U2 is going do Brasil (which means SA, which means at least another year for the tour, which means all sort of incredible things )
