U2 is about to embark on what will be deemed as the the residency tour of 2015. Looking at this up coming tour from the prospective of the band and crew this will turn out to be the best dam tour of them all.
Think about this the band rolls into a city and sets up the show for three to seven nights and boom they are locked in. The crew really does not have much to do but run the show nightly and of course maybe some promotional work during the day and that's about it. For the most part this is a dream tour for the crew. The band well the older the band gets and lets remember Bono is not as young as he once was.
This is the best of both worlds, they get to stay put for a few days, play the best of sets mix in some new stuff and basically have some fun with their audience. Its perfect until you look at the fans. Yup those punters that expect that the management and touring company would offer pre-sales codes for every show. Those dedicated fans that as we speak having been saving their money to be able to afford one show. Of course we know that some fans will try to attend every single night in a city however we ask, why ? Yes, why blend the experience of every night into that one single experience.
Fans blame the new management for lots of things. In the end fans need to take a step back and consider the fact that U2 might be at the end of their touring days. That Bono's number one wish has always go out with a BANG and not a whimper. Sure its easy to blame management, because its hard to blame our super hero's for wanting to make a enjoyable experience for everyone.
We invite you to start the conversation share your thoughts on the whole ticket process. God knows we have heard a hell of a lot about it. Most of you are pretty upset that the band has not extended more pre-sales codes and the fact is that you can still sign up for membership to the fan club and get a new pre-sale code. Heck we don't know if you will be able to use it on the next round of dates announced. What are your thoughts ?
