I think it's also a problem with stadiums in general. If you're playing to an arena which seats 20,000 people, you can fill it with Capital-F Fans. To fill a stadium, you're banking on the Real Fans, but also to people who will go, as you say, as something to cross off the bucket-list.

That said, I was so impressed by the crowd in Raleigh (from what I could see, which was behind the stage and to the sides of the stage). Even during the new numbers they seemed so willing to get into it- acting out Bono's hand signals, clapping, cheering, dancing.

It sucks that OP got stuck between some unfortunate people. :(

I will say that the guys didn't play to the catwalk as much, which was a little weird, and may have affected how the energy felt.

I think the worst stadium crowd that I saw was Toronto 1, where they'd comped 20 000 tickets to RIM and not only did a lot of them not show up, but the ones who did came late and left early. The GA was awesome, but it sucked seeing so many empty seats.
