Yeah Brigitte her name is. She was on stage in Paris at I&E the first night I went. Serial stage girl.

I'm happy for her...but how fair is that to the other fans that would like to be up there?

I hope that was a one time thing. It's been great not having to see people competing to get his attention so they can be up on stage.

BTW, Brigitte is planning on attending all US and Europe shows. That's what she told people in Chicago.

How is it possible to buy so many tickets? I was trying to buy for 2 cities in Europe, but even in presale I wasn't able to buy for both cities. The first city went well. 15 minutes to complete. But the second city was a disaster. I tried a couple of times during presale and during the regular sale. But no luck... long waiting queues and a lot of technical problems.

Multiple computers, servers, IP address blockers. I'm sure she has multiple cards and probably family/friends focus on different dates when they go on sale. It's not just her traveling to every single date, it's a whole group- the groups who control the GA line.

Wish I had the money and free time. Getting GA tickets to one concert is hard enough.

Apparently she's quite wealthy and probably bought some tickets on the secondary market too.

I love U2 but I don't think I'd want to see every show unless I was an employee of the band.  I have other stuff in life I want to do.

I have the same opinion.

"The groups who control the ga lines" that sounds really freaky. I didn't even know that it was an actual group. Always thought it was a spontaneous thing. But that explains why the same people are in the front rows and pulled on stage. They probably don't wait in line. But have friends in the group who hold their spot.

Some of the crowd interaction bits from the last tour were rather cringe-worthy.  Having "PantiBliss" on stage just seemed awkward to me.

My goodness, some fans go to every single night of a tour?!! Isn't that a little obsessive, regardless of whether they can afford it or not?! Surely they must get bored of the show after a while, even if they're your favourite band? I'd hate to make myself sick or blasé over something I love! Too much of a good thing, and all that! Not to mention having my favourite band think I'm some kind of loon, turning up at every gig and always being at the front!!!

It was a transgender person who appeared on stage, apparently to make a point.

In Dublin, to celebrate Ireland finally recognizing LGBTQ

I suspect the band are also sick of seeing the same fans in the front row every show.
