Originally posted by popmarter:15 shows is very short tour by U2 standards they'll be only hitting their stride by the time it finishes, it's a pity they don't do the festival circuit during the summer you see a lot of big bands like The Cure,Foo Fighters and The Killers doing festival shows and what better way to play to an unconverted audience.

But still twice as successful as this upcoming tour will be. Not exactly surprising, though.

2017- Pittsburgh... lots of tarped off areas in the upper level. Still over 40,000.
New Orleans only had 34,000 people, but they somehow managed to make it look pretty full.

Could he be supporting U2 there for a final show?

I might add that it wasn't just Pittsburgh or NOLA in 2017.
I met a fan who went to every show except Buffalo in September 2017. She said that there were loads of empty seats in Kansas City. There were also pockets of empty seats in Indianapolis. In Phoenix, the stage was moved up to the 50-yard line in order to make it look like a full house. Finally, I believe that the St. Louis show would've suffered the same fate had that show went on as planned.
