More Questions... @ 07:14 pm

maro_chik:
So here's the deal. I've never been to a U2 concert, let alone a high-in-demand big name concert either. I'm assuming (and hoping) that they'll be coming to Winnipeg, so I wanna be prepared. I don't intend on getting a u2.com membership, so I won't be getting in on the pre-sales. So I have a few questions:

When do regular ol' tickets generally go on sale? Like, how many months/weeks in advance?

I read in previous posts that GA is the way to go; is it likely that there will be GA left for us regular folk? (I'd really be willing to pay almost anything for any seats though)

If I do get GA tickets, when do people start arriving at the venue? I don't reckon I'll have to camp out, but I want to be early enough to get a good place.

I hear shows like U2 sell out in minutes... I'm hoping to get my tickets from a Ticketmaster outlet nearby; is there a strategy for getting tickets, like going to a lesser-known outlet, or getting there hours ahead of time and whatnot?

So yeah... I'm a lil bit ignorant and sheltered in my concert-going life. Any help would be appreciated. :)

you're going to have to camp out if you want to be close. for elevation, i think we got there 6 or 7 hours before, and there was a big line of people in front of us who had already gotten there.

be ready for it. ;-)

Unfortunately... no Winnepeg, I have never heard of U2 going to Winnepeg. Sheesh, Winnepeg doesn't even have a hockey team anymore (as a Colorado Avalanche fan I have already apologized to my friends in Quebec). Anyways, don't feel bad; U2 is not even going to Stockholm, Sweden. Instead, they are going to Göteborg. Which, I tell ya, really sucks. Poor Sthlmers.

As for getting tickets, I think they go on sale for Vancouver the 29th, and as for getting to a concert early for GA... I'd get there 8 hrs before the doors open at the least. If you wanna be right up there, that is.

They were here for the PopMart Tour. Plus we have a brand new arena, so I'm still hoping that when they announce more dates, they'll include Winnipeg.

That's totally possible for a new arena, but for some reason I can't see it happening. PopMart? wow. That's so cool. I have a few friends in Edmonton, Winnepeg, and Calgary... the ones in Edmonton are coming down here...

Where in Canada did they go for Elevation?
