Title: RUMOR -- U2 PLAYING NASHVILLE JULY 2, 2011
Post by: u2buckeye on October 06, 2010, 05:45:12 PM
Just saw via U2 gigs that there is a strong rumor that u2 will play Nashville July 2. There is a gap between the Chicago and Miami show and Nashville is along the way. Also, another tweeter saying the show is all but confirmed and will be held at  Vanderbilt University.

Vandy is way too small. They should take it on down I-65, turn right on to I-20 in Birmingham and play at Bryant-Denny here in Tuscaloosa. It's way bigger and right in my back yard!

Wow, how awesome it would be for U2 to come to Nashvillle. I wrote the Nashville mayor and LP Field management to get U2 here when they announced the 2009 U.S. leg.

I have my 2011 Chicago tickets and was thinking about hitting another city to go to another show.  Now maybe I won't have to. I sure hope this rumor proves true!

Vandi Stadium over LP Field... interesting...  It does seat 41,000. There are no seats at the north end of the stadium. I wonder why Vandi Stadium and not LP field which seats 69,143?

Vandi Stadium seems like a good venue. For Nashville, it might be hard to sell out a stadium concert, so they don't have to deal with as many seats.

Yes, thank you Miami66-- they should play Ghana-- that would be too awesome!  Black Star Square (or Stadium) and U2!!  What a lovely sight that would be!  ;D

Too cool about the Nashville announcement!  (sorry a bit slow on the uptake... just heard yesterday.)

Log in to U2.com
Click on tours
Click on tour presales
Your code will appear on the left hand side of the page


My code is 13 characters long.  It starts with U2 and it has upper case letters and numbers in it
Hope this helps


Tip - When you find your code, type it and then copy it.  Then when you are getting your tickets, all you have to do is paste your code so you won't have to fool with typing it.
Also, make sure you create an account for ticketmaster so you won't have to do any unneccessary typing when you are checking out.  Also, your credit card will be on file and you won't have to type all the numbers, ect.
Good luck and see you at the show!!!

So did y'all get tickets?  I got 2 GA's, hoping it'll work out for my teen-age daughter and me to make a trip to Nashville to visit my parents, and oh yeah, see U2.  :)  Then, to be really greedy, I'd like to drive home by way of Chicago, and see that show, too!  It'd only be about 10 hours out of the way!  But what a great bonding experience.

Hope everyone got/gets the tickets they want.  U2ken, hope your dad came through.  ML, looking forward to seeing you there!

Wooot! (to those of you who've already got your tix!)  Looks like from ticketmaster you can get a u2. com subscription right now and then just buy the tix you want all in one go.... Anyone know anything about that?

How does one go about getting good seats if one has to be seated??  Are there any tricks of the trade??  (so far, no matter what price range I type in, all I get is row 7 and back)


And Ken... I think if we go forward on this one MY mother is going to be the one buying online!  (yep, just try and calculate her age!  :D)

(love the Mother's Curse Mon-- have to remember that one!  ;D)

Post by: birdlover on October 27, 2010, 08:01:25 PM
Farisfan,
I got exactly the seat I wanted by going to a Ticketmaster outlet in a store and asking what was available. It really helps to have a copy of the venue design with you (with Claw installed) as if it's not in your town, your local TM isn't likely to have one you can see well.
The seats available online are not the only ones out there, but if you refresh again and again, you get the same selection. I wanted a mid-level seat behind the stage for $95. Online there weren't any $95 seats except at the far end of the stadium. In the store, they showed me the whole section behind the stage was available! I mean the whole thing, end to end, second tier was practically empty! When I got home I tried once again to get a seat behind the stage. Nothing.
Even if you have to travel a bit, it's well worth it if you can get to a TM outlet.

Post by: ultravioletgavemesunburn on October 29, 2010, 12:19:31 PM
So I joined the forum just to talk to fellow Nashvillian concert-goers.

I saw the guys for the first time (I'm a relative youngster compared to most of you I imagine) in Atlanta on the 360 Tour and it was completely epic and everything I would've hoped my first (and I thought only) U2 show would be. However, I'm actually more excited about this one honestly.

I think having the show at Vandy is going to give it a more "intimate" feel (as much as a show can be intimate with "The Claw" and all the other stuff going on), and as we'll all be packed in there. Also it's a much smaller venue than a number of the stadiums they've been going to, that was my one gripe about the Atlanta show was that the Georgia Dome is just massive, so even with good seats it felt far away. I don't think there will be a bad seat in the house.

July 2 cannot get here soon enough!

Also, if they do not do "Mercy" on the leg next year I'm going to be devasted, was thrilled to see them doing it live.

Ha! That "long word" is a tongue-in-cheek reference to one of my favorite U2 songs (especially live), as well as UV rays with the sun...ultravioletgavemesunburn is the screen name. Nashville is my hometown so I'm sure you understand the thrill of having U2 play in your backyard, I have been hyperactive ever since hearing the news and getting tickets.

I'm actually consistently surprised at the amount of young U2 fans I know, I'm a twentysomething and I know a number of college friends and younger who got tickets to this show. I suppose it's a generational thing too cause at the Atlanta show there was a family with young kids right behind me.

It was very nailbiting, to say the least... the week of waiting is a living hell, not knowing how much you're going to pay in the end and if you made the wrong choice and should just have got tix.  What worked in my favour was that Winnipeg Red Zones went for so cheap that I could justfiy these ones going for so much...

Plus, my Canadian ar*e really can't handle that humidity y'all have down there in the summer, so it will most definitely be the right decision come about 2pm on July 2nd!

See you in Music City, y'all!

I would also make a point to see Opryland Hotel if you can spare a couple of hours.  It's amazing - 17 acres atrium full of waterfalls and tropical plants.  The hotel has been closed since the flood back in May - and is reopening on the 15th of this month.  I can't wait.

See y'all there!
