iT'S OFFICIAL U2 + DOWN UNDER (UPDATED 8/30/2010 6 pm PST)

Recommended Posts

I got 2 x P1 seats for ANZ Stadium, Sydney in 104-1, I was very happy until I looked at the Interactive Seating Plan at http://www.anzstadium.com...eractiveSeatingPlan.aspx

If that is accuarate the seats Ticketek sold us don't exist. :-o

They do exist.. Most of your section is above one of 4 tunnels at ANZ..  So you are  probably are a bit higher. The whole section doesn't start at the ground level. If you click your section on the map you get an image of the section.. good seats, I think.. happy.gif

Out of curiosity - all the new Cedar people.... can you access any of the other "Community" sections (photos, blogs etc)??

 

The message board is the only thing under the Community tab that works for me, not even My Home - it flashes for a second then says this website cannot be found. I seem to remember someone mentioning this many many pages ago and wondered if it was with all the new people.

Nope. It's RS for everyome ATM. Believe me there not picking on the newbies.

Yeah GA can get you into the inner circle I believe (if you get there early enough) either that or just push through and tell everyone your mates are in there and you're on your way back from the toilet.

 

Or dress in a suit and look official.

 

I take it you are joking here. If you try this stunt you could be subjected to a quick slap to the head tongue.gif

sorry but no need to  do  that in Oz.....take it from me  ..Vertigo Sydney..I was at rail Edges side.....was so bursting to go to loo..had to go ..on way back ..people so nice at letting me back through!...to my exact same  spot!.....thumbsup.gifthumbsup.gifthumbsup.gif

U2 fans in Oz ROCK!!!!!!thumbsup.gifthumbsup.gifthumbsup.gifthumbsup.gifthumbsup.gifthumbsup.gif

In general I have no problem with people who sell their tickets on auction sites - as long as they start at price that covers their cost of ticket, booking fees and auction success fees and let it run, and the market dictating price. However this is an insult to the fan who will miss out in public sale -EDITED EDITED EDITED  mad.gif

 

I really hope no one buys these tickets off him, and a lot of people give him a serve about ethics.

 

HOLA, we dont allow those links, even if it is for "look at what this jerk is doing" examples - Baja

I agree.  I thought it was wierd changing the site layout when alot of people would be joining to get pre-sale codes.  Maybe I thought changes could wait till after presales completed etc

On the interactive seating map it says rows 2-29 in section 104-1 have seat numbers between 32 and 43. Our seat numbers are high forties in one of the first ten rows in that section, hence the concern. It's an amazing location, I can't do GA anymore because of spinal problems, so was thrilled to be near as that but when trying to pinpoint exactly where we would be it's coming up as not existing according to that seating chart. I have emailed ANZ Stadium to check its accuracy or to see if the seating for the concert is slightly different. Ticketek have sold me seats before that didn't exist to a Cirque du Soleil show, Cirque gave us folding chairs and were wonderful, not so sure a stadium with tens of thousands of fans would be quite as accomadating if there is a problem on the night.

You are right those spots are the 2 I got last year in US and they were great. Got to Houston at 9am and Las Vegas about 3pm...so many people push in as well but I got back fence inner circle Houston and 2 back middle outer fence LV and here are a couple of my photos

Hey sounds like you were right near me in Vegas - I was 1 back from the outer rail in the middle, near the bride and groom. 

There's mine smile.gif

On back rail of the circle for the RoseBowl. Both brilliant spots and better IMO than the Redzone unless you are 5'1" or have a weak bladder. 

 

Awesome pics Bluehammer. Im a bit of a photographer myself and ures r just awesome. We would have been very close together at the Sydney Vertigo shows.

Uz r exaclty right about the positions for this tour, thats where i wanna be.

Heres a shot i took from vertigo

i think anywhere in the house for this concert is great i myself got 4 GA tix and 4 t3 seating for etihad it is a much bigger and better set up than vertigo and well every other concert theyve done.... i was recently sitting in Frankfurt right up the top with a 60 000 capacity and it was still a great view, i also had GA tix to horsens and we started the line up at 4 30 in the afternoon and still got just outside the inner circle there is definately a good place for all with this 360 show...... and last yr at wembley was sitting on lev 3 and was a great view, but that is my opinion. at vertigo we lined up at 10 30 in the morn and still got outside the inner circle so it really does just depend i just think with this set up it can be viewed by everyone, but again thats just my opinion.

Brilliant shots from vertigo! Great effort

And re going to the toilet in the GA area... well, from the GA area...

Don't try it after the support act, getting a bit late then, but make sure you come back in the same way you go out. Let people know you're coming back. Pretty easy... 

Don't get stuck into beers before the show though, go nuts afterwards.

Yes thats definately the best tip-to come back the way you went out as people are reluctant to let you through if they haven't seen you before. The number of times I have stopped the people who are feigning looking for friends and told them where to go -anywhere but in front of me matey.devil.gif

These are my nieces at Vertigo.http://www.flickr.com/photos/52881697@N06/4941101683/   Anyone who tried to enroach on our area got ripped a new one by my sister and I and all the females round us.

HOLA, we dont allow those links, even if it is for "look at what this jerk is doing" examples - Baja

Sorry Baja was not aware of that rule, no harm intended

 

Not a problem, basically no ebay, third party ticket sellers, download, file sharing or pictures of the bands families, allowed, & keep it clean (No nudity) - Baja

I don't have a problem with it either ... in general. I do have a problem with 'fans' selling presale tickets on auction sites. It makes a mockery of what fan club membership is all about.

Okay, I'm just going to put this out there ... this isn't a criticism of U2 themselves, just an observation.

 

A few months ago another major band announced a tour of Australia, Metallica. Sure, not comparing apples and apples, but they are a band with a huge fan base. There was opportunity to join the fan club ahead of the ticket sales and that got you a code and invite to the presale. The Metallica presale was simple, if you were in the club you got a code. You were only allowed 4 tix per concert (I think) and there was a clear understanding that people buying more than their entitlement would have their tickets cancelled. Presale day for my city came around and it was simply a matter of logging into Ticketek with the code. You could go in and out as many times as you liked, select and cancel and select tickets to your heart's content until you got what you wanted. No groups getting all the good tickets, no codes not working, no forums getting filled with people complaining. Basically you were in fan club, you got good tickets. When extra dates were set, the fan club all got emails and invited to a presale of the new date, and were able to get good tickets using the same (still working) code. The whole thing was smooth and easy.
