U2 European Album Preorder for Tickets Presale faulty

Recommended Posts

For U2's – European Pre-Order Album & Ticket Access offer you are meant to get a presale code if you preorder the album.

http://www.u2.com/soe_eu

There is also a No Purchase Necessary Option

https://store.universalmusic.com/U2/

For this offer no purchase is necessary to get presale access however the no purchase necessary link is faulty.

It only links to the front page of the U2.com website where there is nowhere to register for the free presale code.

On the other countries in this offer the link is missing completely.

Condition 4 of the terms and conditions states
"No purchase necessary. By signing up to this ticket pre-sale link http://npn.u2.com you will also receive a Code and updates from U2, Island as well as Promoter. You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time"
https://assets.umusic.co.uk/island/U2/TicketingTCsUniversalUK.pdf

Can this link please be fixed on both the UK and Ireland offer page and also the other countries across Europe as it seems to be a deliberate breach of the law.

To be honest if you don't pay for the album why should you get a code.

Because its the law !

Last year Robbie Williams did the same ordering his album but one totally legit site gave codes without purchase

When that happens the presale is pretty much the same as a general sale.

So I've bought the album for nothing. Great.

Its EU Law that you must have a no purchase necessary option for any of these album preorder promotions that provide presale access.

Its the same for any band .

I was trying to pre-order the album and get in with a chance of this pre-sale, but the current link (http://www.u2.com/soe_eu) takes you to the US Universal Music Store not anything in the UK!  There is not even an option to enter an EU or UK address when checking out, as a US state must be selected.  Can the correct link please be put back!!!

Now appears to be fixed :)

I know it's less of a chance than the subscriber pre-order, but money is much tighter and I'm not sure I can swing for the membership again, but I was always going to buy the album.
