    Ahh... and Koreans DO GA and they can freak out... at least when its PSY:

    Don't know what the rules are with Hong Kong being a special adminstrative region of China, but maybe U2 can't, or don't want to perform in Hong Kong. They certainly couldn't (& probably wouldn't want to) perform in mainland China. Looking like a good decision to skip Hong Kong at the moment.

    As for performing elsewhere in Asia, other than Japan, Singapore & Hong Kong, South Korea has a much higher standard of living that the rest of Asia. Their average annual income is 7 times that of the Philippines! Money talks.

    Haha, they certainly love some Gangnam Style
  2. At this point we are still being told that Melbourne should get a second show, and that the promoters are working out a logistical issue for the first show there, which should be sorted this week. The tickets that were initially placed on sale for the first show in Melbourne have sold well, and there is only a very small amount still available at any price range. Expect to see a second show announced soon if it going to be announced. It is likely that the sales for the second shows in Sydney will be taken into consideration when making the final decision on a second show for Melbourne as well.

  3. Any update on a second show for Melbourne?
