Though more than half of the tickets were selling for $85 and up--and that was before taxes, ticketing fees and other charges--fans were quick on Saturday (1/13) to claim their seats for U2's upcoming North American tour. Immediate sellouts led promoter SFX Entertainment to add additional shows in four of the six markets where tickets hit the market over the weekend, but nearly all of those tickets were gone quickly as well.
Promoters added two shows to U2's upcoming stands at FleetCenter in Boston and United Center in Chicago. One additional night was added to the band's Philadelphia and Toronto stops. Though tickets for the band's stops in Auburn Hills, Mich., and Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., also sold out, no additional shows were immediately added in those markets.
Though a small number of single reserved seats at the tour's top price level ($130) were still available for purchase at some venues on Monday (1/15), promoters were terming all shows in all six markets sellouts.
According to SFX, tickets for U2's tour stops in Charlotte, N.C.; Atlanta, Dallas, Denver; Calgary, Tacoma, Vancouver, Portland, Ore.; San Diego, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Cleveland, Montreal and Washington, D.C. go on sale next Saturday (1/20). Tickets for shows in San Jose and Anaheim, Calif., go on sale on Sunday (1/21).
On Monday (1/22), tickets for the band's stops in East Rutherford, N.J., and New York will hit the market. A Jan. 27 on-sale date is planned in Columbus, Ohio.
At press time, promoters hadn't announced ticket on-sale dates in the remaining markets on U2's itinerary. U2 will offer a limited number of pre-sale tickets to fans who register with the band's official website.
A little less than half of the tickets will be priced at $45, including general admission tickets for the arena floor, according to promoters.
U2 announced earlier this month that it would launch its world tour on March 24 with a 33-city North American tour. The Irish group is supporting its recent release "All That You Can't Leave Behind" (Interscope).
