    GA is the way to go if you can, still get the full effect of the screens while feeling like you're seeing U2 in a small club playing one of the greatest albums ever created.

    Yah, during that main set that was all achtung baby, except for a few songs in the middle, that were a bside from the 90s, some joshua tree, and a crowded house cover.    To my brain it felt like I finally got to see the ZooTV (Achtung Baby) tour.   I didn't' get to start going to U2 shows until Popmart so I missed them touring my favourite U2 Album.   It took me right back to that place and felt like I was on that tour.

    It was really the first time I'd gone a concert where a band played a classic album.   Not sure if it works with other bands, but Achtung Baby is one of my alltime favourites, so it was amazing.  I have no regrets that I spend several thousand dollars to travel to vegas, stay in vegas, and see a show.   Worth every penny :)

    I decided to use air miles and book literally a 20 hour trip from Vancouver to Vegas this Friday to see the show. I haven't seen setlists or anything other then of course I know Achtung Baby is played in full.
    When this was announced I swore I would go and now I am pretty excited. Just a little annoyed I bought on StubHub on Monday and today I saw some GA tickets released on Ticketmaster. So I lost about $100, but grand scheme that's not the end of the world.
    Glad to read a couple reviews above stating it is well worth the travel!

    I think it's because Vegas is flooded with people going to the superbowl.  Seems those people aren't buying the u2 tickets (and scared away all the U2 fans).   It was crazy seeing all the facebook posts about the prices dropping so much.

    Yeah when the 2024 dates were announced I was surprised they were even playing this weekend, and immediately ruled it out in my options for buying tix through the fan club as other costs (flights, hotels) would have been prohibitive.
    Just surprised with what you'd assume is a very large influx of visitors to Vegas this weekend, there's not a lot of folks who would want to see the show as part of their weekend entertainment.

    I was in vegas for a total of 17 hours, but I am so glad I did it and saw the show. Well worth it. Would like to go again....
