Could U2.inc do this ?

Not sure this is true but sounds interesting. Thoughts ?
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

Billy Joel has the right definition of a RealFan. He got tired of his SuperFans.  ;)

Would U2 do exactly what BJ did? Not in a million years. B has said it on the satellite radio. They know many of the SF by their first name, have been meeting them outside gigs for years, have seen them grow from young adults to parents., etc...

The only time they tried anything remotely like that was Elevation Boston and the SuperFans went on strike.  ;D

So what's the definition of "success" in this case? Avoiding butthurt from the world's most entitled trust fund babies?

Those princesses won't be creating a hole in the heart (hihsbdjen) because most of them won't be there. They'll be glumly in the front row behind GA, crying, far enough away that Bono can ignore the snot running down their faces.

I'm sure the staff would be instructed to pick a few each night. They can behave and be happy or never get picked again.

OTOH... what if we're all so fucking fat, old, and decrepit that when staff rolls up and says "hey guys, come on down front!" we say "uh, nah bro, Imma sit right here."

(NOT ME!!!)

I have a feeling there will be a lot of 38-28-38s on the front row at a Billy Joel show if that's his system of allocation.

Yeah No Bono spitting water anymore post covid.  Well donít they sort of do this?  The GA tickets are always way more reasonable then the seats.  If they could just deter the line Natzies

Cheap GA tickets are totally different than no GA tickets and filling that space based on luck/staff selection. There would be no Line Nazis. The same people would soecifically not be chosen over and over. Being a trust fund baby will not grant you any advantages. So, no, they don't already do this.

If they just got rid of the line bullshit they would see different fans

Well itís not the line itís the people who run it they take it upon themselves to make this stupid number thing up and then people save places for their friends

Even if you have staff monitoring Line Nazis, only trust fund babies can soend days in line. Getting rid of Line Nazis just makes their wait less cushy. Tbey'll still be at the front of the line.

Lottery system would make sense. Surely the band could afford a few staffers to handle that. No more lines. Show up 2 hours before the show and numbers are drawn. If youíre a couple, you can get a number as a pair. Itís not rocket science FFS.

Then the trust fund babies buy up all the tickets.
