how far should I go?

OK, so I am back in the west coast of USA April 27-29. And so is U2. So, is it worth me arriving early, and flying up to Seattle (April 24-25), to say “Hi”?

Or do I wait, and hope they come to Melbourne, Austalia (still a 3.5 hour flight from Christchurch, New Zealand).

Update: I booked. I am not chasing U2. I fly into LA on Sunday 24th April and leave Friday 29th April.

  3. Absolutely! I’d come down for a visit. It’s only a 2 1/2 hour drive.

  4. See them in Seattle. My flight to Detroit to see the Dave Matthews Band and then the overnight Greyhound bus trip back changed my life.

  6. I think ticket reality might be your decider. I don’t think there is (or has been for a very long time) any tickets available for the Seattle show. vancouver was sold out in 8 minutes, second show sold out in 4 more minutes. When Seattle was added (same day), I think it sold out lickety split. Check on

  8. I would agree with Aaron. I live in the Seattle area and the tickets sold out in 1/2 of an hour. U2 added a second show and the same thing happened.

  9. There are stacks of tickets on the internet – I suspect that the tickets “sold out” to promoters.
