How to see U2 in Japan

Ticket PIA, Japan’s version of Ticketmaster, has arranged a ticket purchasing service for fans who are NOT residents of Japan. Beginning today, fans may sign up for a lottery to purchase up to four tickets to the U2 concert in Yokohama on April 4. The lottery application period ends on February 8. On February 14, those who have applied to the lottery will be informed if their ticket order will be processed.

Because of safety laws in Japan, the general admission area at Nissan Stadium will be divided into sections (see map above). Fans may only specify a request of general admission, lower-level stands, and upper-level stands in their ticket order, not a section number. Seating and section assignments will be specified with the confirmed order. U2japan.com reports that U2.com members ordering general admission tickets in the pre-sale last week were given section “SS” in front of the stage.

Fans who find a lottery system too complicated or risky should consider one of the ticket packages for the Yokohoma concert being offered by ETS, the official tour and travel operator.
