Will U2 sell the remaining tickets to make this tour a complete sell out?

I was there on the floor and while there were sections that were tarped off in the upper sides, the crowd was very energetic for a weeknight. Bono really seemed to love the energy.

Pittsburgh's a good city, I promise. The 360 show here was a 99% sellout. I think it just has to do with ticket prices and the many other concert tours that are touring this summer (the market is very crowded right now). We are also in the Stanley Cup Finals, so the city is really putting most of its attention there.

The PopMart show here was at the old stadium (Three Rivers). From what I've heard, that crowd was even smaller.

27,785 was the Popmart attendance in Pittsburgh, in sure they're well above that.

39,586 was Zoo TV, so they probably have that beat too.

55,000 ish for 360. I was there, and it was certainly not sold out by any means. Still probably my 2nd favorite u2 concert.

Just watching the video of Pittsburgh again and the floor doesn't look that full at all. Is that normal at the jt shows?

https://youtu.be/AruYzvLp6Oo

Another video that's filmed from the opposite side to the other video. Am I right in thinking the whole of that top tier is blocked off. Can't see any camera phone flashes anyway floor doesn't look the fullest does it

Still, lower bowl all full. Upper tier facing the stage full and the floor. It's not a bad attendance at all

People already queuing in Kansas. When do they go on sale?

I remember when I attended the East Lansing show in 2011, there was a startling amount of empty space on the floor... it really looked weird from the seats. I read that the venue had them reduce the floor capacity. Possibly for safety codes, who knows. It may vary from venue to venue.

Upper deck sides were significantly tarped off, although there was something like an L shape spanning a few sections that was open on each side.

Here's a video of the other side of the stadium. Looks to have gotten similar treatment. I'll be very interested to see how many people were actually there.

I haven't looked for awhile, but it appears Louisville now has a bunch of tickets opened up. They seem to be trying to sell every other row in the upper rows. Then people will just naturally spread out up there, making it appear fuller. L'ville is also going to be an interesting one, sales wise. One has to wonder if it would've benefitted more from being part of the original sales push, rather than being added on. I've also wondered that about I&E Denver.

U2 just added New Orleans for September 14. I think this show might be the lowest seller although its been 20 years since U2 played there. There were a little less than 22,000 people in attendance in 1997.

Its hard to say this time around. Tampa had 22,000 for Popmart. But they have a 99.5% sellout this time around. Probably around 55k. So you never know. Pittsburgh was around 40 or so, and KY will probably be low 40's. I am thinking thats about the low threshold we will see this time around.

And Beck is opening this time around. This will boost interest as well. Not to toot my own horn, but he was one of the artists i said U2 should choose instead of Lumineers and Mumford. toot toot

I think a complete sell-out for any of the new dates is unlikely.

But as long as the crowds aren't POPMART small it'll be ok.

At the moment there are only 94 tickets left for Tampa, So it will be a sellout.
Louisville have about 3000 reserved left, and they may have just opened up a few GA's this morning.

I think that San Diego may be a sellout by showtime. But they are charging crazy amounts for those tickets. 165 for uppers!!! yikes
I think Detroit, and MN will sell pretty well, the others we are probably looking at 40k ish...
