1000 New Tickets Released Today

It turned into a “beautiful day” for dozens of star struck U2 fans in Winnipeg Friday. Crowds of fans and onlookers gathered outside the Burton Cummings Theatre for a chance to meet the famous rockers, who said they’re happy to be back in Manitoba for the first time in 15 years.

“You know Winnipeg, we need to spend more time to get to know the place,” said legendary U2 rock star Bono. “We get to know the people, but we don’t get to know the place, it’s funny.”

“I got to hug him and take a picture with bono and he shook my hand,” said Jadeen Sinclair, who was shaking with excitement. “All I had was my beginner’s license,” said Liam Gillen. “So I had him sign it.”

The band showed up to shoot part of a documentary inside the legendary venue. But they took several minutes to mingle with fans and sign autographs.

“What a sweet man to stop,” said Tara Gouzecky. “He could have gone right in there but he stopped and I’m glad he did.”

Meanwhile, the tour released 1,000 more tickets for todays show at the Canad Inns Stadium Saturday afternoon and offered the media a sneak peak of their set. A huge 360-degree stage is set up close to the centre of the Canad Inns Stadium, and a four-legged steel structure holds a massive speaker system and cylindrical video screen that hovers above the performance area.

U2 Goes Downunder !

Ticketmaster Australia 2010

RISH supergroup U2 are returning to Australia for a national tour. The band have announced their tour dates, including a stadium show in Sydney on December 13. The concert, to be held at ANZ Stadium, will mark the return of the band to Sydney after four years.

The band will begin their 360° Tour in New Zealand on November25, before travelling to Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Perth.

Tickets go on sale on September 3 - with promoters Michael Coppel and Live Nation Touring expecting enormous demand.

Although only one show has been announced for Sydney, it is highly likely tour dates will be extended.

Rumours about U2’s return to Australia have been swirling for months. The tour announcement is an early Christmas present for many of the band’s loyal Australian fans, who feared frontman Bono’s back injury earlier in the year might have affected plans for a trip Down Under.

The lead singer had emergency spinal surgery in May, which forced the band to postpone the US leg of their world tour, plus major performances including headlining the Glastonbury Festival in England.

U2 returned to touring this month, with concerts in Europe.

Bono said he was ”fighting fit” and thanked fans, and his bandmates, for their patience.

The U2 show, which features an innovative in-the-round experience for fans, also has a range of cheap tickets for Australian concert-goers.

The ”sight-lines” seats start from $39.90 a ticket, with general standing and stadium seats priced at $99.90.

U2’s manager Paul McGuinness said the band were keen for Australian fans to see the production.

”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,” he said.

More than 4 million fans will have seen U2’s 360° Tour worldwide by the time they arrive in Australia.

A source close to the tour has revealed U2 are also considering leaving their enormous set - a three-pronged alien-like tower - in Australia as a tourist attraction, at the end of the tour.

”They thought it was a great idea,” said the source. ”Rather than shipping it all back on a plane, it could become a local attraction.”

U2 Social Awareness Awakens

 

Two-time Grammy winning group Soweto Gospel Choir has collaborated with international group U2 on a world cup project. The artists have created music for a series of inserts about South Africa that will be featured on sports channel ESPN during the big tournament. From June 11, ESPN will use music that has been specially recorded by Soweto Gospel Choir and U2.  “This is something very exciting for the choir considering U2 is such a big rock band,” said the choir’s Lucas Bok.The collaboration will appear in every program throughout ESPN’s presentation of the 2010 Fifa World Cup. The choir first sang with U2 on stage at the inaugural 46664 concert.

Scams

We had to spend a few minutes this morning to alert you of this latest scam. If your on Facebook and Twitter your aware of the thousands of Fan sites that have appeared over night. The new scam is simply to be able to get your agree to some kind of application game from facebook, which is not endorsed by them to be loaded on your page. Warning this is the first step of gaining your personal information. Next item we noticed is tickets. You can either purchase from Ticketmaster or choose purchase from a reseller. We have checked into TicketsNow they are an official company of TicketMaster so the scalping ticket prices you have seen are not available from them. In full disclosure yes they do have a adveristment on the main U2TOURFANS site. We comfirmed their practices and we believe that they are a good secondary choice for ticket purchases. As we get closer to the tour start you will see all types of U2 stuff appear just check carefully and if your still concerned pass on it and save your money.

 

 

U2 Fans Ticket Alert

U2 fans who weren’t quick on the draw — or, more to the point, quick on the mouse — initially missed out on getting tickets to the legendary Irish rock band’s June 16 concert at Oakland Coliseum. The show was dubbed a sellout not long after ducats first went on sale in early November.

Now, however, promoter Live Nation is singing a different tune about the concert and it goes a little something like this: You, too, can see U2.

Live Nation has recently released more tickets to the show — and, according to the news release, they’re “good seats.” (A quick check online confirmed that.)

Tickets run $30-$250 and are available through both Ticketmaster (800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com) and Live Nation (877-598-6659, www.livenation.com).

TYPE OF STAGE

Informally dubbed “The Claw,” the stage is so big that only sports stadiums can contain it—well, some of them can. Cowboys Stadium near Dallas will raise its enormous scoreboard next month to accommodate the 164-foot-tall rig. The Claws—there are three of them that leapfrog from venue to venue—weigh about 180 tons each and take about a week to assemble. ( Look for the bright red trucks and the line of tour buses as they come into your town)

U2 PAYDAY

Recession ? Really U2 would never know that. 65, 000 fans have purchased tickets which already has set a single day attendance. It was pretty easy to add a second show at that point. All 24 EURO shows sold out and grossed  $188 million. The tour is expected to cross into 2010 and could surpass the Rolling Stones “A Bigger Bang Tour’ at $588 million. Making U2 the highest grossing concert in history.

 The Boys

 Buys guys with a musical score for Spider Man about completed, The Edge will be featured in a documentary  “It Might Get Loud,” along with fellow guitar icons Jimmy Page and Jack White.
What wll they play

Your guess is just as good as ours.  If we look over he set list from the EURO tours we have some what an idea. However all bets are off until the first song. Lots of fans sites have databases of set lists we have posted a links to a couple of them. We know the standards if we can call them standards will be.

“I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” “Mysterious Ways,” “One” and “Where the Streets Have No Name.” Each night’s encore in Europe was the same: “Ultraviolet,” “With or Without You” and “Moment of Surrender.”

It going to Snow

 Remember Izzy from “Grey Anatomy” ? Yea well she made Snow Patrol as household name. They have been opening up for the boys on the EURO tour leg and have signed on for a couple of US dates. MOst fans sites have agreeed that Snow Patrol put on a great show, which take that for what its worth.

 

America not sold out ! Come on America !

If you have been following us on tweeter, or youtube you know that we have fans reporting in from around the globe and most of if not all of them have said this is the show to see. "A event to remember". Now the media has not been so nice, well wait a minute. Only in UK have the shows had such bad reviews it starts to make you wonder what really is the issue. Come on now, who cares about Bono's height or is it his views. Ether way the UK media has slammed the boys and really caused some noise on twitter.

We still want to hear directly from you the fan. Sure we know that sometimes a song may go off key, or a note missed. Yet we want to hear what you think about the whole show. The concept, the vibe, and "the event".

Now we have been looking around Ticketmaster for a couple of weeks and we see that lots if not most of the cities have tickets. Couple of reasons for that. Lets not blame the US Dollar or the lack of a job to miss " The Event" chances are that you can find a couple of dollars to get to see the show. Most of the larger cities are sold out. However tour logistics has selected some pretty weird cities for the show.

Do you want to see the show ? If so Tampa has two tickets, click on the tickets link and check out the prices. -
