I think it's fair to expect a much lower average ticket price for Leg 3.

We shall see. I don't think it will dip below 100 bucks. That said, it's infuriating to see idiots on FB and Instagram saying they "couldn't go" to a U2 show, or WON'T go to U2 show because their ticket prices are so astronomical.

100 bucks. You pay that to go see a local cirque du soleil show, or a half way decent stand up comic. so stupid.

Looks like the Joshua Tree tour 2017 could finish with around $310 million in gross which might be enough for placement in the top 10 tours of all time. Top 15 once you adjust for inflation. That's really good for 50 shows. One wonders what they could do if they took the tour to every city around the world that could support a show of this size.

This was the first time they did a stadium show in 2 PNW cities on a single trip.

Vancouver never really had a drop and I know experienced last minute ticket buyers who did not get into the show - without or without all the GA headaches. Both Canadian shows had a couple thousand tickets that could have been sold if the sight lines were there.

Dallas was 10k short of what other 270 sight line shows had done there.

George Strait did nearly 105,000 for his 2014 "in the round" show, 35 more than U2 did on 360.

AVERAGE TICKET PRICE: $121.36

Did Dallas have a greater percentage of "potentially unsold seats" than Pitts?

Trying to wrap my head around their 1.1 million tickets sold globally headlines earlier this year, when just the North American numbers are 57,306 short of that number.

That was the initial 24 hours that tickets went on sale. That number now stands at 2.4 million according to articles I have recently read.

So the 1.1 number was the initial 25 shows being about 50k each, minus the US shows that were slow out of the gate. 25 shows before the 2nd nights, added US cities and the fall dates.

I know we've already seen these numbers, but here is the new boxscore from Billboard. Sorta interesting to see some of the other acts.

Dublin result is amazing and the London Gross is impressive too. I'm a little surprised by the low cost per ticket in Germany, Italy and Spain. I was thinking Europe would have an average ticket price around $122 given North America was at $118.

80.1k at Dublin, wow. It was packed to the gills in there.

Just curious, what does Coldplay do when they play these huge stadiums? Them and maybe Muse (in Europe) are the only current acts I imagine are comparable.

By saying they could have sold more tickets, do you mean they could've added more shows? Because they sold all available tickets for both cities, on the same day they went on sale. I'm surprised Barcelona didn't have a 2nd show, honestly. Also Dublin.

No, I meant to say that they could've had more people inside those venues. They sold 67,000 tickets in Rome for Vertigo, and Coldplay sold 63,000 tickets at the same Barcelona stadium in 2009. My guess is that they're not selling so many floor tickets this time around.
