Sucks. Good thing I did't travel 20 hours by bus to get there.

I hope it gets rescheduled.

I won't bet on a reschedule, as they leave for South America soon. Poor non-local concert-goers already in STL, who bought flights and hotels.

Huge news.

Wow. So scalpers who bought hundreds of tickets legitimately and sold them for a huge profit will be reimbursed for a second profit, while the thousands who bought from third parties are just SOL?

Yikes.

There is no reason why a fan should have bought a ticket from a third party for a stadium show in STL. Unless of course one has some sort of persecution problem.

Yikes.

Was demand so great in STL that people bought from resellers? 2nd US leg ain't South America.

Not a typical thing for U2 to do. Doesn't sound like a reschedule to me, since they're talking about refunds.

For everyone who would be at the show tonight: I really hope you'll get another chance, or they'll be here again soon in their next tour. :(

In U2 fashion it will be bigger and better than the last.

I have no idea, never been to STL. I guess I'm just used to U2 shows being sold out and having to get creative to get tix.

STL isn't a major market. There has been GA available for weeks.

Wouldn't major sites like stubhub just refund you?

I think they would if it is understood to be in the media etc. Probably no one in 2017 would risk the hit to their business reputation.

Oh, this is so sad...I feel terrible for the fans who were supposed to be there. Terrible. What a disappointment.
