This settles it, I'm selling all 5 shows I have now and going to both DC shows just because it sounds impossible to get there! Can't wait!

See you there. Arena is on F Street and 6th. It's up to you to figure out which one.

I will never knock a band for playing their new material, but unless you’re a huge fan of SoE, one show might be enough. There were some good bits (Acrobat), and some new tracks that gained a ton live (The Blackout), but overall this tour is lazy. It’s the same show as it was a couple years ago, down to the exact same graphics/speeches/choreography. And they made some seriously suspect decisions - like closing with a dud and walking off without a bow to a completely silent arena. Everyone shuffled out like zombies. Not a single woo to be heard anywhere.

Then again, they will most likely dump some of the garbage by the end of the first leg.

Frankly, at the current rate, if you go to just one show you're going to somehow hear more individual songs than if you go to two.

As long as it's a venue's night 1 show.

Have tickets for two, considering up to 4. After the setlist settling into what it is right now, I am going to 1. The set is just way too many songs that I don't care at all about seeing.

Sure it will still be a good show, but not worth the time, effort, and money for the set they are currently playing. After seeing ever tour since zootv at least 4x, it seems weird to not go to more.

Barstool seats at MSG? How are they for concerts? Can you stand up if you want since no one is behind you? I recall being at a comedy show and i think MSG staff yelled at me for standing... even better is when I realized I was in wrong row because they just put them in, more yelling. I've had a few fights with MSG staff at U2 shows over really dumb things. Those guys love to give you shit. Not as bad as the state police during my U2 show in foxboro who yelled at us to get back in the car... concerts are a great way to get stressed out of you fucking mind too!

Why do I want to go to 5 of these POS? Oh yeah, I love U2.

I'm going to Nashville and Atlanta. I think they'll both be pretty solid shows as they haven't played either city in some time. Plus one night only in each means they hopefully bring the goods. GA both shows, really excited despite my grumblings about the encore lol.

If they shake things up a good amount for the European dates I might try to make a little trip out of it later this year. Doubtful but we'll see.

Based on how things are settling, it doesn't make much sense to go to consecutive shows. I can't speak for seeing two shows several weeks apart.

I wish I had a show planned for the end of the leg, but not to be this time.

Normally I'd say go to the 2nd night of a multi-night stand but apparently not good advice for this tour.
