I know, but the Amsterdam Arena is quite steep/high. The JT screen came up to first ring or something.
I think the main reason is that De Kuip was the venue of choice for concerts at that time. and they played it in '93 as well. Arena was open for less than a year and was only starting hosting its first concerts. And I don't know when U2 started booking the venues..
But I'm just guessing here..

it was actually the other way around.. the Arena hosted all the big (international) acts in the 2nd half of '96 and on while De Kuip only had U2 between '96 and '03. No, they might not book the venues themselves but they have something to say..
