U2 en Argentina

Rolling Stone Argentia is reporting the following

As part of the controversy by the power of the stages of the City of Buenos Aires to carry out rock shows, confirming the arrival of U2 to Argentina for the March 31, 2011. The visit of the Irish led by Bono and The Edge, which involves a scenic display that would affect the state of the pitch of the seat in question, opens again the debate about where the show should be: the Estadio Ciudad de La Plata is presented as a the possibilities before the dreaded suspicion that River does not meet the necessary conditions.

Although their official website the dates were not yet published, U2 would come under the 360 ° Tour, with a setting that lifts the grass and put a stage on center court and whose assembly and disassembly disqualify the stadium to be used host football for almost a month.

Will be the third time the band stepped on the show floor opens argento and the list of international hits (hopefully) arrive during 2011.

Are you going to see U2? What do you think it is in La Plata? 

U2 Vienna Fans Ripped Off

U2 arrives into Ernst-Happel Stadium on their world 360 tour. For some fans there will be no show for them. U2 Vienna fans that have tickets from an English Internet ticket provider have yet to ship the tickets. The credit card transaction company has closed up shop and now of course the course is sold out.

Salzburg fan who has purchased the tickets last October now will have to listen from outside the stadium and know that they did everything that could to get their tickets of course now the credit card company will refund her the money but that’s not going to solve the lost tickets.

Peter Niedermayr is responsible for consumer protection in the Chamber of Labour. He confirmed that ticket sales for the consumer is often not transparent. “There is no office in the sense that we would have to inquire directly with the organizers, who may sell official tickets,” he explains. When it comes to coveted concert tickets, the time for a comprehensive search is often not available.

How will the police acted in Internet fraud, said Hermann Rechberger of the Security Directorate Salzburg. From a certain amount of damage a data exchange with Europol. Depending on the situation in that country would then pried open account and IP addresses. But the efforts often ran in the sand as well, sometimes wrong server identities were created. “The fraudsters are clever forever,” says Rechberger. Even if the perpetrators can be pried, a compensation for the damage is often not possible. The money is often already landed on other accounts. Nevertheless advises Reichenberger not entirely off from shopping on the Internet. Passwords can be protected by his credit card on the Internet well. 

We here at U2TOURFANS can suggest the Ticketmaster company TicketsNow as a real option for ticket purchases. Yes in full disclosure we earn a commission from all the tickets sold. However beyond that the money we earn we have comfirmed that all purchases have been completed with tickets arriving to the purchaser home on time.

U2 360° To End Year Down Under

In the middle of the night, as the U2 slept in their beds dreaming of the bands arrrival to another city. A update was placed for all to dream about. Yes we have an offical tour annoucement.

Tour Dates announced for Australia and New Zealand: U2360° will visit Auckland, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, and include  U2’s first Perth date since Popmart in 1998. 

‘U2 has always been at their best when surrounded by their audience, and this extraordinary production makes that happen in stadiums,’ says U2’s manager Paul McGuinness. ‘It was important to the band that we were able to bring the whole 360°  production to Australia and New Zealand so fans could experience the latest of U2’s legendary productions.’

The U2360° Tour kicked off again in Turin, Italy this month and will visit 17 cities, including Moscow and Istanbul, before finishing at the Olympic Stadium in Rome on 8th October. By the time it reaches New Zealand and Australia, U2360° will have been seen by over 4 million fans.

With a cylindrical video system of interlocking LED panels, and a steel structure rising 150 feet from the floor over a massive stage with rotating bridges, the band has truly created an intimate  experience for concert goers. Long-time U2 Show Director Willie Williams has worked again with architect Mark Fisher (ZooTV, PopMart, Elevation and Vertigo), to create an innovative 360 design, which affords an unobstructed view for the audience.

‘To have an in-the-round transportable stadium production is something that the touring industry has been trying to figure out for some time. The extra capacity U2 360° gives us means that there are a large number, several thousand in fact, of low priced tickets at every show’, said U2 tour producer/promoter Arthur Fogel, CEO of Live Nation Global Touring.

 In keeping with the concept that this tour is more about a unique staging configuration with excellent sight-lines tickets in all 5 cities will be available starting at $39.90 with general admission floor tickets available at $99.90. Additional reserved seat tickets also available starting at $99.90.

 Tickets for the U2 performances in Australia and New Zealand will go on sale Friday, September 3rd at all usual outlets. subscribers will be able to buy tickets ahead of the public on-sale.
