A napkin with Edge's drawings. I'm thinking maybe it's brainstorming an album or tour DVD release?

It's the JT special edition. The circles up the top are vinyl records, and the letters describe what is on each one. The circles at the bottom are the cds

You'd think the slob could at least use a clean napkin.
Wonder if the Super Deluxe vinyl comes with coffee stains too.

At least he isn't designing the tour's stage set on a napkin, a la Spinal Tap.

We'll see.

But I have serious doubts about a sellout for both Tampa and Houston.

For Pitt and KY, there's just no way.

Unless they get a huge bump in interest after the release of RHMT.

I don't think U2 have ever really soldout a stadium show in Pittsburgh so this show not selling out is not unusual at all. The Louisville Kentucky show will be the highest attended concert in the history of that city, maybe even the entire state.

Tampa I think will sellout for sure because there are not many tickets left. Houston probably not but they will be close to the 360 attendance level which was U2's highest attendance ever in Houston.

These shows are selling just fine. There is nothing shocking or remotely similar to the low attendance numbers seen at many POPMART shows. All the stadiums back on the Joshua Tree Tour in 1987 and ZOO TV tour in 1992 were not 100% soldout, so there should not be any expectation that would be the case with this.

are you sure about this one or are you just making it up?

concert capacity for papa john's is 45k. kenny chesney did 42k there last year. stones did 40k at churchill downs a decade ago.

current unsold tickets for U2 i at 3,766 - 41,234 sold - this is not including GA tickets, of which there are oodles still available but you can only reserve 50 at a time (which you can, if you and 50 of your closest friends so desire). sure, it's all GA whereas chesney was only partially GA, so there's room for more butts on the floor, but there are also a shit ton of seats available.

so yea... do you have any proof of this one or are you just making the assumption that louisville is a podunk shit town that has never seen any major shows before?

You could say I'm assuming this more than it being fact. The state of Kentucky let alone louisville has not seen that many large stadium shows over the past 50 years. Louisville also was not until recently a place where artist would play. I did not know that Kenny Chesney played there last year. Kenny Chesney usually depends on 3 or 4 opening acts to bring his attendance numbers up. Plus with it being Kentucky, Kenny Chesney is a natural for the region, while U2 is bit off the norm for taste in Kentucky.

Here is the Stones Boxscore from 2006:

September 29, 2006
Louisville Kentucky
Churchill Downs
GROSS: $5,060,297
ATTENDANCE: 40,912
SHOWS: 1
SELLOUTS: 1
Average Ticket Price: $123.69
SUPPORT: Alice Cooper

I'd say it's even, but southerners tend to be more passive aggressive where those from the north east are more direct.

Anything else?

You can't just blatantly make something up, present it as fact, and not expect a reaction.

I bet there's plenty of assholes in both cities. Which one do you reside in?

I made a prediction, I didn't make something up. Plus there is evidence to support that prediction.

Should I interject here, being that I AM a Kentuckian?

I don't think U2 will have any trouble selling those last few thousand tickets. They still have almost three months to do so, and a lot of people within a decent distance of Louisville might make a last minute decision to attend the show if tickets are still available. I myself would have gotten tickets to the Louisville show if I hadn't already gotten Chicago 2 tickets. I even considered going to both shows, but I really can't afford it, and June is already going to be a nightmare of scheduling for me, without having to go on far away trips EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND (between Chicago and other duties, I'm already doing a lot of travelling during the month).

Granted, I don't really live close to Louisville because I'm on the far western side of the state (Chicago is a 6 hour drive, Louisville is a 4 hour drive, into another time zone, so it feels like 5), but to say that Kentucky are Kenny Chesney people, and not U2 people seems to be making an assumption that we're all country music fans? I'd say that's really not the case. Classic rock 70s-80s is huge here. The other factor is that we don't get a lot of great events coming to our state, so when someone decent DOES come, people will go just so they can have something to do.

When you live in a location where literally everyone tours, you might decide to only see the bands you really like, and skip the shows of people you only listen to in passing. In Kentucky it's more like "wait, something to do that doesn't involve horses or college basketball?! FINALLY, and then you buy a ticket."
