Now Available: @U2 Podcast Episode 7

Episode 7 of the @U2 podcast is now available, and we have a very international theme this week as we talk about the upcoming European leg of the Innocence + Experience tour. Special guests include Navid Sigari Majd, who's part of the U2tour.de team, and our very own Aaron Govern -- one of @U2's staffers based in Europe. We share some guesses on how the tour will change for the European audience, songs that might be dropped or added, and the general experience of seeing U2 concerts in Europe.

As usual, we also answer listener questions that were sent to us via the #askatu2 hashtag, and host Chris E. creates a new "feature" where listeners ask me to clarify things I've said before -- including a question about what Songs Of Innocence tracks I said were "awful." Ugh. Go ahead and prep your hate mail and tweets now. :-)

This week's episode runs 57 minutes. If you've subscribed to the podcast via iTunes or your favorite RSS reader, you'll get the download automatically. Or you can listen on the web:

@U2 Podcast #7: Previewing Europe & Following Up with Matt

A couple reminders:

  • If you enjoy the podcasts, please rate us on iTunes -- this will tell Apple that we're doing a good job and they'll be more likely to give the podcast extra visibility. In other words, your positive rating will help other U2 fans find us. (You actually have to go into the iTunes software to leave a rating, can't do it via that web page.)
  • If you have a response to something you hear on the podcast, or just want to ask a question or suggest future topics, use the #askatu2 hashtag on Twitter.

Thanks again for listening!

 

Looking to Buy/Sell/Trade U2 Concert Tickets? Try Our Forum

We've had a few questions come in about legitimate places to buy, sell or trade U2 concert tickets with other fans, so consider this a Public Service Announcement aimed at answering a question that may be on a lot of fans' minds.

Officially, there are still some tickets for certain shows available via official ticket outlets (i.e., Ticketmaster in North America). The tour page on U2.com appears to be pretty up-to-date about which shows still have tickets available.

Beyond that, we also have a dedicated board in our forum for fans to buy, sell and trade tickets directly with other fans and only at face value. All of the existing shows are listed individually, so just find the show(s) you're interested in and add your post or see what others have already posted. Selling or trading GA tickets may be difficult due to the paperless ticket requirements, so keep that in mind as you offer those tickets or search for them.

And be sure, if you do use this section of our forum, to read the post at the top of the board -- "Rules for Ticket Buying/Selling/Trading." We don't hesitate to boot people that try to make a profit from selling tickets in our forum.
