I guess some fanclub money isn't as good as other people's. We don't get an allocation of all ticket options (ie no RZ) in Cedar. U2 would be the last group I'd ever think would be guilty of discrimination but there it is.

Got mine with no problems. 4 GA for me and 4 for wifey.

Got a big group of friends and family going up.

 

wish I had shares in U2.com with the amount of new members signed up this week!

 

Looking forward to seeing if there's a second Perth show...

Yeah lots of money made this week by U2.com and ticket agents(ridiculous handling charges). And so many problems and no one to help. Rang Ticketmaster but they knew nothing and could do nothing other than tell me I could only buy tickets online so I said well I can't thank you for your help and wasted my time calling you, bye. Don't like being rude but boy its frustrating,

Maybe U2.com could just issue everyone with another code that works? Really $50 US and the handling charge and all this isn't making it any less stresful than having a bash Friday or waiting for second concert

I agree.  Kind of sucks that there are no RZ tickets but paid $300 for best seated option instead.  Thing that really gets me is Ticketek charging $20 to put the ticket in an envelope to send to me.... :/

what about the 20 dollars they are charging to have us walk up ot the box office and collect it ourselves!

 

Bitterly disappointed about no redzone in CEDAR group

 

they couldve at least looked like they cared about giving allocations

I'm pretty bummed to not get RZ tix!! I will be nearly 6 months pregnant then and wanted the extra room for my belly lol and I was super happy that my ticket fee would go to charity. Oh well could have got GA but we were right on the barrier in 06 in GA and don't think that's safe for bubs.

Happy with p1 tix nice and safe in the stand, though will be tempted to try for RZ tix in the public sale. Its all about the music so that's what matters can't wait to see the boys :)

I'm gutted there were no Auckland RZ tickets left for Group 2. Still, glad the RZ tickets went to die hard U2 fans in Group 1 rather than just rich members of the general public. Got my GA tickets and will be lining up early to get near the front. Hopefully won't be too far away from you lucky RZ people. See you there!!!

No RZ left for melb but i got 3 good seats in aisle 10 level 1 so very happy!!! For those still trying - don't enter your pre sale code too often or it will not work - try just re setting your selection instead of going back.

Good luck all!

As with previous opinions, I am gutted that the cedar group did not even get the chance to buy RZ tickets for the Perth show. I thought there would have been at least allocations for both ticket groups.

Yeah that was a full on bummer. I'll be pretty miffed if there is an RZ allocation for the public sale because that will mean that Cedar was almost singled out not to get them.  I think the only chance for RZ's now is additional dates.

I wonder if any of the Group 1's whose codes stopped working and were unable to buy have managed to pick up tix in the Cedar sale. Gotta feel for those guys.

You can't gripe too much about not getting Red Zone tickets in the presale. To be fair they didn't have to presale any particular tickets and the majority of people that have already bought them were subscribing to this website since before there was even an Aus/NZ tour announced! Fair play to them.

 

That being said, anyone scapling tickets (RZ or otherwise) should themselves be scalped.

 

Although RZ would be cool, I was in pretty cheap seated tix at ANZ Stadium in Brisbane last tour and guess what?

 

IT WAS STILL AWESOME!

 

IT WILL BE AWESOME AGAIN!

Replying to "Xtoss83" = still seething about the same thing! I'm another CEDAR member that missed out on Red Zone (RZ) tickets for the Sydney Concert.

I logged on at 3PM, and in under 30 seconds discovered that RZ was gone.

So I can only assume that all those presale groups that came before CEDAR, got access to as many RZ tickets as they could afford.

I was kinda hoping that each presale group, would be allocated a set amount of tickets. This would let every group have a fair chance of securing RZ, or other tickets they wanted. At the very least, give some poor soul the chance to get a RZ ticket within the first minute of ticket sales.

God Help the rest of the Public on September 3.

Not a Happy Cat!

Well I hope there are none available to the public, sorry to be bitter. But after forking out the $300 for a seat I will be miffed to find out that they keep some for the public instead of leeting them go at the presale.

I'm pretty okay with the fact that the earlier group got the Red Zone tickets, they deserve it out of loyalty to the fan club, paying the fee every year even though U2.com is never really efficient.

 

I'd be bummed though if there was none allocated for public sale. Think the general public should have an allocation of RZ too.

Sorry you didn't get what you wanted but for people like myself who have been loyal paying customers of this site since it began, even through all the quiet times, it is a just reward for hanging in there to get first pick of the ticket bunch.

Ring them up. In some cases they've been refunding duplicate transaction fees when the system prevents you from buying in a single transaction (eg Redzone)

Good luck.

GA is better than Redzone. You've saved $500 and got a better spot.
