Originally posted by deanallison:It will be interesting to see what kind of figures they bring in for the show. It’s a big stadium, Adele managed 70k for it, Ed Sheeran sold 62k tickets for it, the Rolling Stones have managed 54k in the past whilst Phil Collins managed around 30k. It would be disappointing if u2 couldn’t get near the Rolling Stones figure at least. The Rolling Stones did manage to bring in $3.8million dollars more than Ed Sheeran right enough with a lower attendance.

Adele played in the round.
The Rolling Stones ticket prices are astronomical compared to, basically everyone. They are the most expensive band touring to go and see.

So the 62k Ed Sheeran achieved probably is around maximum for normal set ups. If they’ve went to the extent of changing the layout perhaps it’s not realistic to expect anywhere near 50k even then. Time will tell although I’d be willing to bet they bring in more money than Ed Sheeran with a much lower attendance, a u2 show does cost a lot more to put on right enough.
