If at all possible you want General Admission. Closer to the action. And cheaper than anythng else. Sitting at any conerct is a waste.

Ticket Tiering is a term used to describe different prices for different areas of the stadium or arena.

As distinct from: all tickets at the same price.
Generally speaking, the closer you are to the stage, the more expensive the tickets. However for U2, the standing tickets have traditionally been the cheapest, but they have been a very small percentage of the overall ticket numbers for indoor shows.

For example:

Standing Area directly around the stage 100 $
Standing Area around the area above 75 $ (so further away from stage)
Best Seats 250 $ (closest seats to stage)
Midrange Seats 150 $
Worst seats 100 $ (furthest seats from the stage)

etc. etc.

"GA" stands for General Admission and usually refers to a standing ticket, but it's possible there maybe a few different standing tickets, for example many acts have a "GA Golden Circle" in front of the stage,(at a premium price) and Standard GA then is usually the standing area further away from the stage.

In another context, it can also refer to both seating and standing- but the seating in this case would be unreserved, as in, no seat number, you just sit where you can get a seat.
