    Same model as the last 5 tours.

    GA tickets (close to the stage) will be around $40, seats will range in the $75-$150... nothing new other than the in the round part.

    the problem will be trying to get those $40 tickets.

    Well, I'm not traveling to see them so they'll have to come to Salt Lake and if they do I should have no problem securing $40 tickets. This isn't LA.

    the u2 subscription is $50 bucks. gives you a pre-sale code for tickets. seems fair if you want to a good chance at getting tickets.

    Yeah it's a good thing to have... esp if you plan on multiple shows.

    Also they divide GA tickets into fanclub and non fanclub ones. Tickets bought with fanclub memberships are let into the GA floor areas, before everyone else.

    right - still early but initial impressions are very good.

    Cedars of Lebanon – sounds like the Joshua Tree outtakes, a-la Walk to the Water or Luminous Times. To me a good thing.
    Unknown Caller - Very Daniel Lanois. A good thing indeed, love the shouting military-esque chorus.
    Fez - I love how they revisit an earlier tune’s hook, make it super subtle, such a Eno touch makes me smile.
    Breathe – a good heavier song without trying to hard the way Vertigo did..

    Other than the fact they will be selling like 60k instead of 20k tickets since this will be in Stadiums while the last US tours have only been in Arenas

    Agreed..

    I have been a huge fan for 27 years (that is a crazy thought in itself).
    Achtung Baby & the Zoo TV tour was the pinnacle...but they will do just fine in 09.

    No, it didn't. MOST of Popmart was in huge Stadiums - not arenas.

    I saw that tour 3 times in 3 different cities it was all the same in those markets.

    Shall I scan my ticket stubs?

    what a great performance they put on last night on letterman
    Lick an orange, it tastes like an orange. Lick a pineapple, it tastes like a pineapple. Go ahead, try it. Try some more. The strawberries taste like strawberries. The snozzberries taste like snozzberries! We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams. Come along, come along.

    agreed.

    curious to see if they in fact do all 5 nights of new material?

    did everyone catch this?
