blue hammer is right there will be plenty of peeps with extra tickets to sell / swap - there is a folder in the sub side for just that and it will no doubt be up and running soon for anyone to post what they need have

we were all new at one stage - just chill it will all work out - one thing you will find is that U2 fans are brilliant and very helpful and i am sure with tickets trades / swaps selling you will get what you want.

one_bad_lemon']FAQS states -

 

code to be used ONCE only, ONE code per transaction, up to 4 tix limit

 

what if you bought only 2 tix say first up, can you go back and use this same code and buy 2 more to make up the 4 limit per code

 

it wouldnt let me choose the mix neither, hence went for RZ only x2

 

very confusing!

 

but I'd rather be safe than sorry so won't try don't think and instead go via public sale

exactly what i did.....missed out on rz2 though....jeez they must have gone quick!!!!

I found the limit of 2 redzone tickets by ticketmaster frustrating. actually wanted 4. ended up getting 2 redzone and 2 seated. would really like to get redzone tickets. also annoyed that i'm hit with 2 x handling charges bcos ticketmaster didn't allow the mix of tickets for one transaction.

thats a good point Sasikala maybe THAT's why Ticketmaster didnt allow the mix of tix so we would be forced to go in and try for more - did you reuse your code then to get the 2 seats? I considered it but the confusion has stopped me from doing anything as I don't want to risk my RZ tix

 

*sigh* page 60 and we are still none the wiser.. LOL

bestia']I think alot of the confusion is due to the fact that Ticketek and Ticketmaster are different with respect to their ticket numbers:

 

Ticketmaster: Perth & Melbourne:

Please note: There is a limit of 4 tickets per transaction

 

Ticketek: Sydney & Brisbane

 

TICKET LIMIT: 4 ticket per city per member
-so you can buy 4 for Brisbane and 4 for Sydney - confirmed by Ticketek.

Hmmm yes. very clear.

Although does 4 tickets per transaction mean you can buy 8 tickets in 2 transactions...hahaha!!!

I decided to experiment with my presale access code. I've bought 4 tickets for the Melbourne show. Ticketmaster correctly did not allow me to proceed with purchase as I've used my code. However, ticketek let me use the same code to select tickets in Sydney and I could proceed to the checkout stage. Obviously they've not found a way to close of this loophole. And seriously if they haven't and allow fans to purchase multiple tickets, I don't think fans should be penalised.

Build a time machine. And book last week roll.gif

$140 for the Novotel Olympic Park. 

I'd try to find somewhere that won't force you to pay up front. there's a few still out there. Just find somewhere in town, train ticket is free with your ticket. Pretty easy.

well I bit the bullet and bought the xtra 2 seats for Perth to go with the 2 RZ I bought earlier today as I rang TICKETMASTER and they INSISTED it would be okay as the limit is 4 per code

As I was unable to buy the same type of tix initially (RZ or GA option only) but wanted seats too, thus he said I would need to buy them in 2 separate transactions, thus reusing same code, as clearly it was for SAME city and only 4 tix all up

 

SO, I will be expecting that to be okay else I will be not happy to say the least if my tix get cancelled when its been authorised by Ticketmaster itself !

 

goodness, I won't sleep now .. worrying :( even though I was told and told and told by Ticketmaster that IT IS the only way I could do it... arghhhhhhhhhh :((((

 

I hope to wake up less stressed.......... LOL

 

Since when do customer service reps make the decisions? - Baja

I know from past show AC/DC for example they had the second show on sale straight away with no warning.

Good luck. This threat of cancellation is hanging heavy over some heads at the moment and it needs to be clarified quickly. Legally I doubt there's a leg to stand on as the terms and conditions are determined by the ticket vendors, in this case Ticketek/ticketmaster. It would be quite a shitfight...

Yep. This isn't what happened last time with Vertigo however, so it's anyone's guess.

well yes, I would think only those trying to exceed the 4 tix limit per code should be cancelled, not those who had no choice but to reuse the code to get the type of tix they wanted;  if anything, TM gets another handling fee out of my 2nd transaction so doubt they will be complaining!! As I said, all up I still stayed within the 4 tix limit per code, which is what the FAQs says anyway

Ticketmaster !! better be right then!!

just curious, but would anyone happen to know how many tickets in total are available per red-zone?

That would be two/code from what we've been hearing.


NO, its 4 per code, but if you want 4, due to the 2 ticket transaction limit you must CALL for the Melbourne and Perth shows. For all other shows you can buy all 4 in one transaction - Baja

Baja - for Brisbane you were unable to get all tickets in one transaction if you wanted a mixture.  My sister (with a medical condition) & I wanted seating and a friend wanted GA to join another group of friends who had used their entire pre-sale allocation.  Ticketek would not accept a mixture of seating types and I had to do two transactions (and yes I used the same code frown.gif) .

RED ZONE questions.....

Desperately waiting for Cedar presales 1pm Monday. Does anyone know if RZ tickets are still available for Auckland?

Please can someone who bought RZ Auckland tickets answer how you choose between the two RZs? Do you choose West or East sides of Mt Smart when buying tickets? Which is RZ1 and which is RZ2?

Thanks heaps :)

So what is the correct procedure if I want to buy a mixture of floor and seating tickets that may include 1 red zone. ??
