At the moment we don't have any information about the stage design for the U2 concert, nor do we know if the stage construction will in any way affect the GA or seating areas.

    The last time U2 played at the Ullevi arena was during the PopMart tour. You will find setlist, photos and a description (in Swedish) at this concert page.

    More tickets released
    The Swedish concert promotor EMA Telstar have announced that there will be two more chances for U2 fans to purchase tickets for this concert.

    On Monday February 14 at 9 AM tickets that haven't been collected will be released. They will not be sold online but can be purchased by phone on Ticnet: 077-170 70 70 (from outside Sweden: 0046 77 170 70 70). There will also be a smaller amount of tickets with a limited view released when U2:s stage design is officially confirmed and it is known how it affects the Ullevi Arena.

    Update 2005-03-18:
    EMA Telstar now confirms that another 1800 tickets for the Ullevi concert will be released on March 22, at 9:00 AM. All of those are seated tickets and most of them are located in an area with a limited view. The prizes will vary between 550 and 800 Swedish kronor/ticket and there will be a limitation of 4 tickets per person. As before, tickets are sold by GotEvent and Ticnet, see information below. Please note that it won't be possible to buy tickets online, only by phone or at the ticket sales agents. EMA Telstar also says that the view from those seats probably will be fine, but since they're still not 100% sure about that, they sell them as "limited view tickets".

    2005-05-05: EMA Telstar's Ticket Manager Tina Widengren confirms in an e-mail to one of our forum members that more tickets will be released, as EMA for the moment are withdrawing overprized tickets that have been for sale on the internet. This/these ticket release/s will be announced with short notice on www.ema.se.

    2005-05-10: Tomorrow, on May 11, at 9 A.M., a small amount of tickets will be released. These can not be purchased online, only by visiting the Ticnet representatives or calling Ticnet or GotEvent (see phone numbers above).
