u2 hype!

Probably not a super popular topic around here, but I'm excited for the U2 concert announced yesterday!

http://www.u2.com/tour

BC Place on May 12 in Vancouver, May 14 in Seattle so little chance of a second Vancouver show being added. Tickets next week.

"I still haven't found what I'm looking for"

But seriously; how many seconds before the concert sells out after ticket release only to pop up on other sites for an over inflated value?

As I was attending BCIT I went to the Vancouver show in the fall of 87 at BC Place. We had to go get "wristbands" first so you could buy 8 tickets later. What a gong show. So many scalpers bought tix and then couldn't sell them at the door. When the concert was over, there were unsold tickets strewn everywhere outside BC Place. Ridiculous.

I would like to see Unforgettable Fire in its entirety. Think I will just play the cassette on my Walkman instead.

Unforgettable fire is by far my fave album by them, Brian Eno magic. The Albums after Joshua Tree didn't do it for me. Maybe if they were playing the Commodore or something I would go, but the big shows are not my thing.

In other news. Have you seen the sweet new Stubhub arena in LA that they just moved the San Diego Chargers to? Now everyone in North America can hate that arena. Especially the ones in San Diego. Now you can now go on Stubhub to pay inflated prices to see your favourite event like U2 in an arena thats named after a scalper. That arena is going to be hated.
