Two more sections opened up.

That's the thing with monitoring sales via TM -- you just never know for certain what's been sold in the grayed out areas.

Minneapolis is clearly the top seller of the Leg 3 US dates, with only one price level left. Unfortunately, that price level is the ludicrously overpriced $165 upper level seats, but at least they've sold all the $290, $100, etc seats.

San Diego, St Louis, Detroit, and KC seem to be in the next tier, with hopefully 2 or 3 of them being close to sold out by showtime in September. Or at least mostly sold out save for 2 or 3 sections here or there. (KC has a bigger stadium than the other three, so even though they still have a fair number of seats remaining, it wouldn't surprise me if they've still sold more seats than some of these other places.)

Buffalo and Indianapolis seem to have lots and lots of seats available. Live Nation may want to spend some advertising money in those cities to try to help move those tickets.

It will be interesting looking at the Pittsburgh Boxscore for this tour and comparing it to the 360 boxscore. One would think that a nostalgia tour for the Joshua Tree album would easily beat a tour for the No Line On The Horizon album, but that won't be the case.

Yeah, the 360 tour was more or less "in-the-round" and they were able to sell most if not all seats in the stadium while this tour is a traditional end stage setup that blocks off a good 1/4th+ seats that go behind the stage. Also, the 360 tour simply had a *lot* more dates, even in a one year period.

Pretty shocked Buffalo isn't pulling more folks from Toronto area. Not too far away and a huge U2 city. But yet again, they are playing a show just 3 hours from another one they just played (Pittsburgh) which had its own issues. So they probably already got a lot of people from Buffalo go to Pittsburgh. I just don't understand the logic of these locations.

Yeah, it actually looks like they just opened up 4 new obstructed view areas. My guess is that these won't count as "unsold" tickets in the final count because of the view status. So I think Tampa will be labeled a sellout.

That said, I would guess that would give tampa at least a 55-60k attendance. Well over double Popmart attendance and about 15,000 less than 360 where they set an attendance record of almost 73,000

Interesting looking at ZOOTV numbers. I forgot that the attendance of these shows were not spectacular.

Detroit - 37k
Kansas City - 38k
St. Louis - 48k
SanDiego - 34k
Tampa - 42k

I would say JT tour has these numbers beat already and they just went on sale yesterday.

I was at that Tampa 360 show on the floor, up front center stage. And I remember after the band finishing MOS, Bono turning to walk off and saw him look up to take in the upper level sections at the "side/back" of the stage.

The place was absolutely packed.

Had to be a good feeling for him and the rest of the band, after that horrid showing for POPMART their last visit in Tampa.

I'll be there tomorrow night too, hoping for a packed house as was the case in Miami.

They listed Pittsburgh as a sell out, so yes... every show will "sell out"

Many shows, however, will have lots of empty seats.

Remember, some of these shows were weakened by the fact that U2 had already played an arena show there earlier in the year.

Looks like New Orleans is definitely going to be the toughest to fill up.

If they can fill the lower bowl up then they will do well. New Orleans and St. Louis look the worst sellers by far

There is no logic to this tour.
1 concert for Dublin ,1 for Germany ,1 for Spain .
3 of their biggest markets
Only 12 concerts for the whole of Europe ,absolutely pathetic planning.

They could sell out 4 nights in Dublin,heck they could have sold out 4 nights in Dublin,and 2 in Cork ,yet they choose to play smaller capacity venues in the US that haven't a hope of selling out .

Given the nature of the tour I think the message dictates the US dates and focus.

Hoping for fans around the world to get to see this tour of course. But I think I understand what U2 is about with this outing.
