I really enjoy stadium shows. I saw U2 at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City during the 360 tour. Wonderful show. Can't wait to see them at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles.

That roundhay park gig was immense, truly immense

My sis and I were also there and it was an incredible experience, one the best U2 gigs we've ever been to.

We're only going to see U2 in Rome and Dublin this time.It's cost us both a fortune, we're glad we're going but we simply can't afford multiple shows anymore.

I might dine in Dublin City
Dance all night in Rome
I go any freakin' place I want to
And my Lear jet brings me home.

I reckon you're still doing ok, Ali. ;)

Cast supported and it bucketed down with rain.. regardless of those 2 negative aspects I have to agree! I got there 1 hour before  gates opened, ran over to the stage and walked up to the mosh area and they tagged me and my mates and that was that! Lucky, really lucky. Before the days of the red zone.

I would love to go to more than one but as most have said, the expense is just too much considering the cost of the tickets and the travel.  I managed to do that for 360 but that was over a three year period. 

I am thrilled that while I will only be seeing the one show (Vancouver), it will be from the Red Zone!!!

Stadiums are for sporting events, not musical concerts, so I won't be going to see them this time out.

Having said that, I regret not going to see PopMart at Leeds, but this JT 2.0 tour is not going to be anything like as special as PopMart was.

Roundhay was amazing, so were Cast great band from your neck of the woods 😊

Cast supported and it bucketed down with rain..

My sis and I looked at the weather forecast for the Rounday gig and bought new waterproof coats just in case---and did we need them! I remember looking over my shoulder and the sky was just pitch black.It looked like the end of the world....and then it rained cats & dogs.We just stood listening to Cast with our heads down while everyone got wet.I think John Power said something along the lines of the "F#*$ing sun will come out when U2 do" and it did! Bono swept the rainwater from the stage and then they sang "Who'll stop the rain".What a night  :D

Thanks for the poem, John  :)

I'm definitely attending one, Pittsburgh, as it's in my city. Depending on how varied the night-to-night setlist turns out to be, coupled with the scalper prices, I may also go to Cleveland, since it's only 2 hours away.

At least 2, but I'd love to somehow work a 3rd show in there somewhere.

3. I like to invite people, not do gigs by myself.

My hometown show of Miami I had to sort out tickets to: my parents, my sister and her husband, my wife and my two cousins .  (5x $70 seats and 3x GA)

Tampa: my two cousins and I (3 x GA)

New Jersey: ny business partner (2x $280 seats)
