Kanye West and U2!!

OK I realise I've probably posted a little too much latey about U2, but last night I heard rumours, just confirmed by a quick google search, that Kanye West will be supporting U2 next year! I'm full stoked as-thats gonna be so awesome! The only problem now is gonna be how long I'll have 2 line up to get a good spot-as we decided 2 get general admin tickets! Gonna be a quality night!

actually, while i knew that he'd previously supported u2 i'm a tad dissapointed that he's the support.

of all the people in the world and in australia kanye is the best that they could do?

i'd have chosen a local band, or at least a little known group, they've pulled snow patrol, keane, the killers, kings of leon, Dashboard Confessional, Arcade Fire, Patti Smith and Damian Marley...

why kanye?

i would've been much happier with the killers.

but then, i'm not going to U2...so it doesn't really matter to me :)

AJ said...

yeh, 'flynt' had to knock U2 back cos our guitarist has a broken finger. i gues kanye was a last resort

Been watching their concert DVD's and in this tour they have a loop thing in front of the stage with general admin ticket holders inside- that'd be the best spot, better than A tickets!! Prob have to sleep out again for that position though.

nahhh

no need to sleep over, it sounds like the tickets are randomly selected as people enter the stadium, those who are selected get an armband and also get to drag a friend into the centre of teh ring.

Yeah look to be honest the decision does mystify me too-but I'm not fussed.

Although I must admit I do like the idea of pulling up a less known group, giving them a bit of publicity etc, not a well-established star like Kanye.

Man I so hope I get them little armbands! That'd be awesome!

Yeah I'm shattered too that flynt couldn't play AJ-really unlucly that he broke his finger. I've heard flynt play big stadium rock really well!
