U2’s second Sao Paulo show sold out in less than 8 hours. Sales were by telephone only, which caused a lot of stress to Brazilians fans because the telephone lines became jammed when sales began. The ticket service declared its call center received more than 600,000 phone calls in 7 hours.
Local TV Channel Globo has announced it will broadcast live from Morumbi Stadium, and the cable channel Multishow will also broadcast the same show.
Tickets for U2’s concert at São Paulo’s Morumbi Stadium on February 20th will go on sale next Monday. Ticket prices are:
- Campo/GA Field: R$ 200,00 (US$ 88)
- Tribuna/Stands: R$ 230,00 (US$ 101)
- Pão de Açúcar Emotion Kit (this is a combo that includes: Stands ticket + lunch + t-shirt + Cd HTDAAB): R$ 380,00 (US$ 167)
Tickets may be purchased online via Ticketronics.net and at Pão de Açúcar supermarket, which is the main sponsor, only in some branches of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The other sponsors are Siemens, CLARO, and Telefônica Speedy.
The local promotor has announced that as soon as the 73,000 tickets are sold, a second show will be added for Feb 21. He also confirmed that Franz Ferdinand will be the support act and that, in spite of rumours, a show in Rio de Janeiro will not be added.
