Only U2 show I ever did in seats was one in Anaheim towards the beginning of the Vertigo tour. First and last time I ever made that mistake. Same with Springsteen...even if you have to get bullshit scalped GA's on ebay, it's still about the same price as a legitimate, Ticketbastard-purchased seat, so there's really no reason not to do GA, especially in these stadiums.

I agree the stadium thing is definitely drawing more casual fans to the seats than on previous tours. Say what they want about "staying relevant," the band really spent this decade positioning themselves to be legends who could fill stadiums on their reputation, and they succeeded fairly spectacularly...downside is that the diehards like us end up being more of a minority than at the arena shows we've gotten used to, methinks.

Yeah, I felt the same way after a crap experience in seats on Vertigo. But the 360 show is actually brilliant from the stands; it's a whole other experience than from GA. It's just a shame that not everyone attending gets that.
