In The Future...U2 @ Canad Inns Stadium; The Watchmen @ The Pyramid

>> Monday, 18 October 2010

On Friday, MTS General Manager Kevin Donnelly tweeted, "Massive concert announcement this Monday! Literally, will be biggest show ever hosted in Winnipeg's history!"

This one tweet officially ignited a healthy tending topic dedicated to speculating who it would be: Lady Gaga? The Boss? The Ghost of John Lennon? Radiohead? U2? were just a few names tossed around.

Logically, though, it had to be U2. Bono's healthy; they're touring all over the world; it's in late May.

It is, in fact, U2.

The larger-than-life Irish rock stars are playing Canad Inns Stadium on May 29th with ticket sales going down Monday, October 5th. Prices range from surprisingly reasonable ($30) to just under my monthly car payment ($250).

So, I ask you...excited? Disinterested? Sitting on the fence?


Also, Winnipeg's prodigal sons The Watchmen have booked a two-night sojourn at the Pyramid from December 3rd to 4th.

Fun fact: one of their drummers use to live in my building.

I believe the last time U2 were in Winnipeg was during their Pop Tour, where their stage consisted of a giant LED screen (which was awesome) and boasted of technology way before its time. Like 'em or not, it will most certainly be an entertaining show. Just hope all the snow has melted by then!

Sitting on the fence, but leaning in the direction of seeing U2.

saw the POP tour here and was underwhelmed...saw them in T.O. on the Vertigo tour was it was a much better show.

No one does arena better than U2 these days.. the only bad part about this show is our horrid stadium! Still may go..
