As the topic says - we just got tickets to see U2. It will be my DS's first ever concert - what a way to start your concert days.

He will be a week off 13 when he goes, and he is stoked! So is DD who's second concert it is! (her first was PINK! can't top that ever!).

My DH is beside himself, he is a HUGE U2 fan - me - I don't mind them, so I will tag along and enjoy the spectacle and seeing their faces biggrin.gif

We only got the cheap tickets, but when we purchased them and saw where they were FRACKING AWESOME SPOT!!!!!!! biggrin.gif

Anyone else going?

Mel if you're not that huge a fan I'm sure I could always take good care of that ticket for you!

I would love to go but at the cost of 1 ticket for general admission I don't think I could justify it.

How much were your tickets? I saw general admission at $260 a pop.

I saw the Zooropa tour in Brisvegas in the 90's and it was awesome!

Try $39.90 each!!!!!!!!!!!! Yep yep! We were not expecting anything other than blood nose seats - but NO our seats are actually really good (considering what we paid for them!) Suffice to say DS will also get a program to keep and a tshirt if he wants one!

The $260 ones were for the red area - really close to the stage - we are over looking the red area - thats how awesome our seats are.

There are plenty of others at $109 and other prices as well - go check it out.

Well, tonight is the night! DH and DS are so excited!

I am hoping it is going to be great - I have not heard any reviews on last nights concert yet. Has any one else?

haha everyone in here is going to kick me.
DH got free tickets and we didn't want to go, so we gave them away (to his sis and BIL) turns out they were in a corporate box and all. This was for brisbane at suncorp stadium. Probably would of been a good experience but we aren't into U2 or Jayz. Meh no loss to me though.

All I can say is 'WOW'! biggrin.gif

Best ever concert I have ever been to - Bono just oooozes cool, in every sense of the word.

I was not a huge U2 fan before last night - i am now converted! Thanks DH for making me get the tickets!

Glad to hear some reviews. We have tickets for Sunday in Perth and there have been so many mixed reviews and people whinging and complaining. I was starting to really think it was going to be crap.

Did those of you that have been have seated tickets or standing?? We have reserved seating and are a little way from the stage. Still hoping it will be decent sound.

We had seating up in the stands and the sound was amazing. This is a pic that I took from our seats

I went with a friend Monday night and it was awesome!!!!! Even though we were only 12 rows from the roof seats. lol. Definately better than Vertigo in 06! Sara, you should still have a great time in the reserved seating section.

Did anyone pay the $300-ish dollars for the standing area between the stage and the 360 walkway???

Excellent - thanks guys. Our seats are ground level - prob 4 or 5 rows back from the fence. But we are up the other end of the ground to where the stage is. I can't wait though.

We sat in second section back from the ground floor (so in the dark blue seats as shown in ~Camilla~'s picture!) and our seats were awesome! We could see everything.

My only teeny gripe would be that the sound quality for when Bono spoke, was not fantastic - but when he sang - oh my - it was perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You will have a great time scasey77
