    Tickets for the second Boston show are moving very slow.
    You can get row 2 in the Loge right now.
    Those prices are crazy.
    So i'm confused - did the 2nd show not sell out?  When I go online I see a bunch of tickets and assume they are part of the re-seller market?  If that is the case does a show ever sell out anymore?
    Under the ticket type just check off standard ticket.
    Make sure the resale option is not checked off.
    Right now you can get pretty much any ticket for the 2nd Boston show other than GA.
    It's just the standard ticket prices are absolutely insane.

    If they come near me I'll be going. This is a band I don't think it's wise to pass on.
    Del, what major market is nearest to your town?
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    Ahh - thanks!

    So standard tix are available for both shows but many more for the 2nd.  Center ice balcony tickets (standard) are $325 each for the first 6 rows!  After row 6 it looks like the price changes to $171 which is what I saw for pricing in the presale.  What pisses me off about U2 is they even hold back decent balcony seats from their paying fans.  Always thought this but if these shows had sold out I wouldn't have been able to confirm it.

    I did grabbed two GAs for the 2nd show during the presale.  They were reasonable at $76 but with fees I was up to $200 for the pair.  Add in the $40 membership that I had to pay again even though I was already a member and GA are $120 each.

    Yeah, you'd think they've got enough money by now and could lower those fucking prices to something close to reasonable. It just seems like greed at this point.
    Yeah, the prices are RIDICULOUS!!!>When i tried for tickets for Philly i could get in the Lower section, and about 2 to 3 sections from the stage,and the price for 2 tickets was OVER $700.00!!!!!.I like U2 a lot, but i wasn't(didn't), paying that price.

    They've turned into the Rolling Stones: Charge BIG money and play the SAME set list on the Tour. After a few shows they can almost play in Auto-pilot like(in their sleep), the concert and just count the money that's rolling in.

    Just won U2 tickets for Los Angeles from a local NPR station......they do give-aways via email, so you don't have to listen all day and furiously dial!

    That’s been my beef with this band ever since Joshua tree their tickets went thru the roof I refused to pay that kind of dime for any band , I saw them here on Long Island Stonybrook university back early 80s , I scalped for the MSG show they did after 9/11 paid $ 175 per ticket that’s the most I’ve paid to see them ...
    jesus greets me looks just like me ....

    Now, if we could only get an official "Zooropa" reissue, I could complete my U2 vinyl collection.

    I'm pretty stoked about Pop getting a reissue.  Just when vinyl was starting to get interesting again I started filling holes in my collection.  I think I scored a copy of Zooropa for $40 but copies of pop were going about 90 and I didn't buy one, only to watch them keep going up.

    I always thought Zooropa and Pop were pretty underrated.  My favourite U2 song (Stay) is on Zooropa.

    anybody in the fan club and not using their code/haven't used it and it's going to waste this tour and want to hook me up with mohegan tickets?
  • PoncierPoncier Posts: 8,666

    Already used mine for Boston.
    Mohegan is a tiny arena for them to play in, tickets will be tough to get, especially when you factor in casino comps.
    It looks like they have a fan club bundle presale starting Wednesday, so you might be able to pay $50 for a membership then and get tix if anything good is there (GA).

    That's a great get on Zooropa! I bought Pop probably 15 years ago for under $20. Gonna grab the reissue too, really interested to hear the remaster. It's my favorite U2 album and I can't have enough copies of it in my collection as far as I'm concerned.

    Didn't they already reissue achtung baby? Or was that ONLY the anniversary deluxe boxset thing? If so, that's kinda weird to only release that and not a regular version at the same time.... I actually did buy that boxset, and it's pretty pointless. All the bonus shit is basically garbage.

    Yeah I am pretty sure it was just the anniversary deluxe boxset thingy.  I preordered pop and all that you can't leave behind on amazon and am still on the fence about wide awake in america.

    got my yearly fan club package about a month ago. 4 vinyl set of joshua tree singles. one side live other side remastered.
    great old shots of the band on the 8 surfaces. top shelf stuff even though the outer corner edge of one of the vinyls came sightly crushed!
    with or without you, i still haven't found, where the streets, in god's country. solid

    really really loving the new cd as the live shows are coming up fast. best new album since before ATYCLB and on this new album every song is great+ really really happy about it, as a long time fan. great lyrics from bono on this new album

    Out of all the great shows I attended in 2017 U2's gig in Berlin was simply the best despite the heavy cold rain, the gig was breathtakingly super!!! (Noel Gallagher's support was a brilliant bonus)
    I won't see Bono & co.this year (PJ is first) but I envy everyone who will !

    That's absolutely true! I also was there and I have to say that is was a brilliant gig. Both, U2 and NGHFB.

    I'll be seeing U2 this year in Cologne. It's the 5th time for me, but the last time was 8 years ago (360° tour) so I'm really looking forward to the show!!

    Had forgotten about the song “The ground beneath her feet”.   A gem.
  • Tim SimmonsTim Simmons Posts: 3,038
    They should have pushed that sound more for their 21st century work.

    Last night the e+i Tour opened in Tulsa. Here's the setlist: https://tours.atu2.com/concert/bok-center-tulsa-may-02-2018
    Quite heavy on new material (which is OK to me, an artist should always promote its latest work). Plus certainly one song that many have been wanting to hear live for years and years. Looking forward to my shows!
  • helplessdancerhelplessdancer Posts: 4,305
    . Plus certainly one song that many have been wanting to hear live for years and years.

    Acrobat was never played before last night.
  • Tim SimmonsTim Simmons Posts: 3,038
    Yeah, that’s a string setlist. I have tickets to Chicago. Need to see if I can make it work.

    I'm in tomorrow's presale.  When did you get code?  Did you have a chance to find good seats?  Did the presale sell out?  Very curious...

    Last night was the first time since the Joshua tree album came out that new songs were played from it!
