My plan of action is to thank God that Bono won't be permanently paralyzed, that there will still be a U2 and that I will get to see them next year.

I got an email from TicketMaster saying that my tickets would still be good for whenever they reschedule the show so I'll just rebook a hotel when they figure out when that will be.

^^^. This. +++

of course, the first sentence was, has been, and will be my first plan of action...

What if you bought your ticket from StubHub and are not sure if you will be able to see the rescheduled show...how do you get your money back from StubHub?

I'm wondering the same thing. I'm in college and flying up to Denver from here in Louisiana works in the summer but I doubt my friends and I can go if its rescheduled for during the semester  :-\

and we all got our tickets from stub hub  ???

I'm worried about that too.  I go to school in NY, but I have tickets for Miami and Anaheim.  If it's during the semester I could be screwed.  I think you're fine with Denver because of the temperature, but I could see Miami and Anaheim being scheduled early in the year before baseball season starts (late March, first week of April).


Pretty much every concert site other than Miami/Anahiem is in a city where weather can easily be awful through April and into May, as has been shown in Colorado this year (snow earlier this month ppd'd a couple Rockies games). You've got Denver, Salt Lake, Chicago, Minneapolis, Edmonton, Philadelphia, New York, etc.. So I don't think it will start in March or April, unless the band wants to sit around for a few weeks after playing Miami/Anaheim, waiting for the weather to be palatable enough in all the cooler climates. Just my 2 cents.

I am very happy to hear that Bono is out of hosptial and is expecting a full recovery and the the North American dates will be postponed till next year. That is music to my ears, thank God he is doing well and is already up and about.The European tour will go on schedule with a few dates postponed, but in the long run our man will be fine . Thank you God! I presume the new scheduled dates will be announced within the next few days . I am so pleased that he is alright . I cried when I heard the initial news, now I am relieved . I will see U2 again , same place one year later . It's alright , it's alright ......he moves in mysterious ways ..... 2011 will be the best year for U2 .

My sister and I were traveling to Montreal to see them July 16th.  Luckily we are within driving distance so it's not too expensive for us to go twice, which is what we are planning to do.  We already booked the hotel and to get a great deal we had to pay in advance without any option to cancel.  So we've decided to come up to Montreal for the weekend in July and then come back when U2 returns.  I'm sad that we won't see U2 this year, but I am so excited to take the trip anyway!  Good luck to all of you who were traveling to see U2, I know there were a lot of us out there.  I hope you all are able to work things out and are able to see them in 2011.

Thanks for the wishes and ditto to all! 

Just canceled my flight, car and just have to get a hold of the hotel now.  5 of us are going to rebook for next year and I have to use up my flight beforehand b/c I bought it last November & it was too late to get a full refund.  Its a disappointment but no biggie in the scheme of things... I'll just plan another getaway... maybe visit some friends & forum buds in the US.   I'm starting to think NYC area will be the ticket... ;D

And they make money twice on the same tickets.

That's true, those sneaky jerks.  How very cagey.

No one says I have to sell them on StubHub, if I choose to sell them, which I won't, 'cause I'm going to that concert no matter when it is.... 8)

Same here. And I might be buying back the NY GA ticket I sold. It's starting to look like this delay will work to my advantage.

I was sent an email today from Stubhub which states I can ask for my money back but they strongly suggest I hold onto my tix because of the possibility the price might go up!
