Getting On Our Boots

U2’s latest record, No Line on the Horizon, is the band’s best since Achtung Baby—and on Wednesday, September 16 (and assuming Ticketmaster doesn’t jettison its entire ticket stock to scalpers beforehand), we’ll get to hear it live at Rogers Centre. Say what you will about the band, its lead singer or its/his tendency for nauseating self-aggrandizement: U2 knows how to deliver the goods in a live arena, and the design for the forthcoming tour looks jaw-dropping. And it may not even cost you all that much to attend: according to a Billboard report, ten thousand tickets per concert will be available at thirty dollars apiece. U2’s most recent Toronto appearances—a four-show run at the Air Canada Centre in September 2005—caused Ticketmaster to crash within seconds of tickets becoming available. Be prepared for a similar occurrence on Monday, March 30, when this year’s gig reportedly goes on sale.
