I think US Airways Center is the only North American arena on this tour that is sized primarily for basketball.

Question for the locals - is the downtown area congested for Diamondbacks games?

There are games scheduled around the same time as the concerts, so it'll be 50k or so people down there. The arena and stadium are only a couple of blocks apart. I'm thinking of attending the Phoenix shows.

Short answer, not likely overly congested due to the D-Backs games - their attendance is generally pretty weak. I did have a co-worker of mine tell me that getting in and out of the downtown area when there is a big arena show going on is pretty hectic - not the best traffic flows/only a couple exits that are really practical for I10.

I'm going to the show on the 23rd and am tempted to swing around and come in from the south on I17 - not sure if it will help, but it's a thought.

I do remember when the Arctic Monkeys were in town last year traffic was pretty backed up.

Anyway - just my 2 cents

Thanks - so it may be twice as bad for the U2 shows. The baseball games (against the Cubs) are at 6:40 and 7:10 on Friday and Saturday. If I go, I guess I'll try to stay downtown.

I was thinking about this last night and checked the Dback schedule. Normally the crowds are not that big. It just happens that the night of the concerts the DBacks are playing the Cubs. That means MUCH bigger crowds for the game. Quite possibly a sell out. Parking might be a tough depending on what time you get down there.

I know a couple old-school interferencers are going to be at this show, but none of us really post here any more. Anyone else?

And thanks for the parking info! Never would have occurred to me to check the sports schedule.

pppssst: AchtungBaby23, I just posted to your fb
