Wouldn't be a big U2 fan but seen them at Slane and they were great. Definitely worth seeing once.

Yeah I'm going to try for U2 tickets as well, stadium gis can be shit but I reckon they'd be pretty good somewhere the size of the point. Not going to be too disappointed if I dont get them though going to be one of those ones that sell out immediately so just going to try for standing tickets on the tuesday as I assume there'll be least demand and see what happens.

I know people will give out no matter what they do but cool gesture giving the proceeds of the gig to charity. Did the same after their last set of gigs in Croke Park too

i would pay £60 actually. but it's the flights and all the rest which will rule me out of making it over.

i would see them for sure. i go through little periods of listening to their earlier stuff and there's a bunch of songs of theirs that i love. don't know if they play them live mind you,

That wouldn't be too bad. Looking online tickets for the 3arena go up as far as €185. Boke.

Yeah but they start at only €33.50, I'm sure that's up at the very back but still pretty cheap for a band of U2s size in a venue of that size. €70.45 does seem a bit steep for standing tickets though

I'd go if they played Mofo, Discotheque and Hold me Thrill me Kiss me Kill me. All the mad 90s stuff before they decided to retire their imaginations.

Can't imagine there will be very many at the lowest price either.

Electrical storm is a good song as well. Possibly the last one I liked.

so a cinema in edinburgh called me back about potentially hiring it for a stag.

£25 a head for 2 and a half hours. nearly £600 in total they wanted. all you get is to watch the DVD in the room and a drink on arrival.

i couldn't work out if he was taking the piss or not. it's only a wee private screening room too, not even a proper cinema screen.

That's ridiculous.

Is that the pub that has a cinema in it?

Brass Monkey?

lol. i was saying 'and so what food does that involve, and how many drinks are included'. and he was like 'err one drink, that's it. oh but there are bowls of skittles and nachos!'.

the drink is a glass of bubbly too. it's a stag!

nah it was the dominion cinema.

the room does look cool and it would be a nice gathering point when everybody arrives on the friday but those prices aren't realistic.

must look at that brass monkey place.
