There's only one problem with those dates....U2 never play three nights in a row. Bono's voice isn't up to it. If you look at the last tour (u2tours.com) two consecutive gigs is the most they played. On the Vertigo tour, the Dublin shows were Friday, Saturday, Monday.

I flew to Ireland 4 years ago to go to that 1st Croke Park gig (Friday night) and it was a blast.  If these 2009 dates are correct, the final date is my birthday.  looks like I'll have to do it all over again.  :)

i flew in from uk and met my wife to be who's had flown in from chicago with a friend and we went to the friday and saturday night shows.thae whole weekend there was a buzz around the city and lots of u2 fans meeting up.i was in the hogan stand for the friday night(miserable damp night) and was on the floor just in front of the soundboard for the saturday night .it was an amazing experience which probably won't happen this time for us as with the little one we will just make one of the uk gigs for the day

Same here, julsport!  I'd love to see them in Ireland and July's a great time.  Hopefully, they'll have a ticket company (like ETS was for the last tour) that will make it easier for those in other countries to get tickets.

Well, Ive bought my tickets through ticketmaster the last few occasions - queued up all night for them though - found queuing up that they'll stop the queue at a certain spot saying that there wont be tickets available after that spot.

Hmmm... Last time I queued up for U2 tickets, it was for Slane 1 and as I'm sure you've heard, it was an absolute shambles. I even managed to get myself into trouble with the Gardaí on that occasion. I've done it online ever since.

You have as much chance of those of us in Ireland(like me), it's almost certain, they will go onsale on You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
so you can book them there when they go onsale, and the Irish website will deliver them to you in the US or in other countries, unlike ticketmaster.com, who do not deliver tickets to countries outside of the US and Canada. The Irish website only charges 3 Euro, about 4 bucks for delivery to the US,
but lets wait for the official announcement that they are playing the weekend of July 24th (only a rumour, ahem !
