Tour now announced, more dates to be added:
https://www.u2.com/news/title/the-jo...ree-tour-2019-

Scooe for Extra nights to be added if first night sell out.


Singapore will get at least one gig, but not announced yet, as Perth sales, will determine if they play 2 nights there, and if they do, that impacts the first night in Singapore.

I’d say its been called JT, as that will make sure of strong sales, should sell very well.

Ticket sales for the Australian and New Zealand gigs are pretty terrible.
The second night in Auckland will be a ghost town ,they've sold less than 30% of the seats .
In Adelaide they have moved the stage up the pitch to shorten the standing area and closed sections of seats .
The initial ticket prices were outrageous ,they have slashed prices in alot of venues to shift seats ,some seats that were 362 AUD are now 66 AUD.
The band obviously havent learnt their lesson from the previous US leg of the tour .

The locals are not happy with the self appointed lunatics giving out line numbers ,they started their bull**** queue on Sunday ,5 days before the concerts.

Saw the Adelaide stage move:

On the other hand, 5 of the 15 gigs on the tour, are all sold out, so its not all bad news. Auckland night 2 seems to be the worst sales.

When bands play “large scale“ over that side of the world, its not that relevant that gigs sell out, but they pay the overheads. Many of the Stadiums are quite large capacities as they are cricket grounds. The distances between gigs are also logistically challenging, which places restrictions that don’t happen in Europe or the U.S.
Sydney to Perth for example is 4,000 kms distance, a little shorter than New York to San Francisco.

Just signed into U2.com to renew my sub, which is due to end 31 Jan, to notice that they have extended it to 29 Feb - anyone else get a "free" month? If I wait to renew for a new month, I presume my membership will remain at its current status

They were due to make an announcement about the new subscriber gift this week so it looks like they have extended memberships to allow more time for it.
