Yeah, but if you look really carefully, the days that have not added second shows is because they never had 4 days in between them in the first place - or they haven't sold out the first show yet, as tickets have not gone on public sale yet.

I'm freakin because I'm almost positive I'm right, but like you say, it's a hell of a risk. I'll prob have to take the hit and buy 2 tickets tomorrow and 2 more when the next show comes.

Does anyone know how much the tickets in TO will be - esp the GA

Also, what is your opinion as to the best tickets after GA? I have to prep for the possibility of not scoring floors.

Update- I saw the Soldier Field Chicago page and Bears ticket holders get access at the same time as horizon members. Thats kind of frustrating to me, but I can see why they'd do it from a business perspective. As long as I get my tickets without any drama, I won't hold it against them. But there are a LOT of season ticket holders in Chicago. Not saying that all or even most will want U2 tix, but it could happen.

I can't find this anywhere.  And if at all, I'm finding discussion on the official Bears message board that says that any events that have special presales are ONLY for the Club Season Tickets, not ALL season tickets (Club are the ones right on the sidelines in the second tier, the best football view, and they pay like $100-$200-ticket regular, it's not the entire stadium).

I just checked again and the Bears Club note was taken down. Like I said, I don't blame them for rewarding customers who buy the big time seats like that...but put them with the boots group. U2 is using them for an event, so why can't they be loyal to U2 first. They skipped a lot of other venues to go to Boston and Chicago, both cities with nearby options as far as competing venues.

Definitely put them with the Boots group.  I have season tickets to our CFL team and when the Rolling Stones came here I had presale tickets for them, but I also could have bought season tickets to the team beforehand knowing this as well.  However, the presale was available the day AFTER the Rolling Stones fan club was, and in my mind that was totally fair.  Season Ticket holders for pro-sports often pay surcharges on every ticket for stadium upkeep so they deserve something before the general public, but not before the fan clubs IMO.

Yeah, all stadiums, especially football is mostly kept up and run by tax payers and season ticket holders. I almost feel they should get something. But I'm gonna stop beating a dead horse.

i'm having a similar dilemma.

the current giants stadium date is on a thursday night.  i'd much prefer to go to a friday or saturday show.  but, do i want to risk it?

1.  they may not add more giants stadium shows (although that would be shocking). 
2.  if they do add more, there may not be a presale.

i want to use my 4 presale ticket allotment carefully.  if i buy 2 for the thursday show and later buy 2 for a yet to be announced friday show, i'll have no more presale opportunities - and i'm not sure if i will get an allotment of 4 more tickets for any possible 2010 dates or if this is all i get for this touring period.

Got my tix to NY with ease, although I did encounter an error during the waiting in line process, but I just hit continue and the tix finally came up.  I got 2 GA seats.

I got 2 for Gillette, $97 ones in section 114...just where I wanted to be. I had 3 TM error messages that knocked me out of the system and then I rejected several tickets as too far away before I got these.
