Can I get close to the stage in reserved seating?

U2 are performing an outdoor stadium gig in Sydney and tickets are on sale in a week.

I'm not sure whether to go General Admission or Reserved Seating. I want to be as close to the stage as possible. Can anyone say (based on experience) where the general admission section is likely to end and where the reserved seats will start?

The stadium is a massive 80,000 seater so presumable the permanent seats will be crap viewing. So will the grass pitch be full GA or will there be temporary seats on the ground are from how far back?

Any clues would be appreciated!

In Europe there were no seats on the pitch for stadium shows. Best served IMO getting GA and then getting there early enough to get in the front section (it held about 4,000 in Europe). Makes for a long day queueing but how often do they tour.....

1993 - London 12/8, 21/8
1997 - London 22/8
2001 - London 17/8, 18/8, 20/8, 21/8
2005 - Brussels 10/6, Manchester 15/6, London 18/6, 19/6, Glasgow 21/6, Dublin 24/6, 25/6, Cardiff 29/6, Boston 3/10, 4/10, New York 7/10, 8/10, 10/10, 11/10
2009 - Barcelona 30/6, Dublin 24/7, 25/7, 27/7, London 14/8, 15/8, Sheffield 20/8, Cardiff 22/8
2010 - Paris, Brussels x2, Rome
2015 - Amsterdam 3 & 4, Stockholm 1 & 2, Barcelona 1, 2 & 4, London 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6, Paris 3, Dublin 3 & 4

^I wholeheartedly agree. GA MUST be experienced at least ONCE in every U2 fan's tour is an extremely personal, intimate and very different look and feel than seeing the show in seats. You will be spoiled.
