Wow, this is big. I'm really surprised actually. But it's great that they're finally playing Almost Acoustic Xmas.

Interesting that they're not billed near the top. Probably to detract the haters.

I wonder how long their set will be. Are we going to get a few more songs from the album, besides the three they've already performed? Or are they going to throw in some classics?

Probably at least 45 minutes if I had to guess, maybe longer

When the Cure played KROQ's acoustic xmas they played a full 2 hour set. I'm going to try and get tickets for night two. These tickets to this event are usually pretty hard to come by. But since it's at the Forum instead of its usual venue?? Universal?? better chance at tickets as the Forum is much bigger. I just wish Rise Against was on night 2 if I do score some. That would be a killer line up!!! Definitely U2 will close come on. Doesn't matter where they are listed on the flyer.

Night 2 is the better line up and is going to sell out fast. Do you know when tickets are going on sale ?

This is quite intriguing, but you're right that it's killer to get tickets. I believe there's also the restriction that you must be a California resident. I'll see if I can swing this, but I won't hold my breath.  ;)

Night 1 is pretty darn good too!

And, if the artist listing is meant to be alphabetical, and I think it is, then someone needs to remind me when V started coming before U! ;)

I hope the rumours about U2's concert tickets going on sale in Dec are not true cause this show is gonna set me back.

The Forum's got a pretty well-oiled machine going on since their remodel and reopening. Although it's expensive to park on site, they organize and staff the facility so well that you're in and out in a flash. I've never actually had "good" seats though as they sell 'em WAY up to the sides of the stage (where I was last week). I'd love to end up in the lower part of the bowl or even on the floor for the right band! I don't think too many of the GA floor folks at the KROQ show will be lining up early for U2, though!
