ticket allotment

Recommended Posts

Larry, Bono, Edge, & Larry,

Here lies One HUGE problem.   Even after the fan presales, the Citibank presales, general public presales-I still cannot purchase 3 seats together without purchasing through a re-saler at double, triple the original ticket price...

I really am struggling as to why the people that love U2 the most (the fans that have remained loyal to them and have continued to renew their fan club membership year after year-were only allotted 2 tickets????  I'm still scratching my head on this one.  I have been a fan club member since the Propaganda time period... 

Case in point: Both myself and my roommate (we have been roommates as well as fan club members for well over 15 years-WE HAVE THE SAME ADDRESS), we each pay for our own individual fan club subscription. We have purchased tickets for at least one of every tour show since Zoo TV.  We have purchased multiple tickets each so that we could share the extraordinary vibe of seeing U2 live by taking our friends.  We attended 3 different shows for the Joshua Tree Tour last year. Each and every time, we have purchased tickets through TM without any problems (with the exception of TM always getting bogged down and freezing up or going down), but I've always been able to purchase tickets.  So when the time came to get verified through TM, we didn't think it as a big deal, but I have since had my eyes opened...  We both got verified and we both were sent Presale Codes. I was able to purchase 2 tickets (for myself & my daughter), my roommate was able to get a seat right next to us but when she went to go and pay for her ticket she recv'ed a msg that she exceeded the maximum amount.  By talking with TM, We can only purchase a max of 4 tickets per address....  Had I known this-I would have not purchased 2 tickets during the presale and waited to take my chance on purchasing 3 tickets through the Citibank presale and the general fan presale-both of which I had recv'ed presale codes too, but because 2 tickets are already purchased at my address, I can not purchase 3 tickets together.  I'm disappointed because there are many many seats left at the venue but in the $171-325 price range-which even if I could afford to purchase these tickets, I can't because of the address situation.  TM told me to use a different address but then my cc would decline for possible fraud due to incorrect billing address.  All I need is to be able to purchase 3 tickets together.  I'd gladly give my tickets back to be able to purchase 3 together.

save yourself some anxiety next time. embrace the scalper from here on out. at least they have the product you want to buy. you paid fan club membership for 25 years and get 2 tickets if you are lucky. some other guy got his Citi Visa for the first time last week and gets to buy 4.  that alone sums up the state of the band's promoter. pitiful.

Honestly, I think after this tour I'm done with the fanclub.  Even if the fanclub presale had been flawless, the fact that Citi card holders were allocated more tickets than paid fanclub members, is absolutely ridiculous.  Why should I pay for a membership when I can just sign up for a credit card and get allocated more tickets?!
