You are welcome, @mich40 ! Right now I'm researching pick-up details for 7-11s and once I better understand, will post.

In an earlier post I mentioned viewing videos to learn how to pick up, but have yet to find an online resource/video specifically about 7-11 pick up. Hope not to have misled folks looking for help. 

Put out word to Ticket Pia, and possibly fans who purchased have contacted them, too.

Congrats to everyone heading to Saitama!

Codes are for your personal use only and cannot be transferred/used by anyone else. All ticketing code use is audited and anyone found to be abusing presale privileges risks cancellation of ticket purchases and U2.com subscription.

Thanks Mich, appreciate the quick response and clarification. It has been a while since I've used their pre-sale codes.

Cheers.

keep checking periodically... it's possible that some (RED) Zone tickets become available during the presale duration up until the end...

I'm surprised so many GA's left though....

Also, remember that the (RED) Zone tickets are highly coveted.. it's not unusual that they go in seconds. And since it's a small zone, the ratio offer/demand adds to the difficulty to get them...

if you have found GA tickets left, consider them instead...

Yep I got one GA just in case! If I get RZ later then some lucky punter will get my GA on way in!

Got tickets for 12/4 and 12/5 !!! HELLO TOKYO :)

 

I also got SS tickets for Tokyo, but my email/confirmation gives me no idea in which section I am in or what row, seats, etc.  How to get this info, is there a different site we are supposed to go to and enter our Ticket Number or Order Number? I'd sure love to know where I will be sitting after buying these expensive tickets!

It seems that this will be how it will work... we are waiting for an update which hopefully makes the information about the procedure more clear. Please keep checking the site and the FAQ section...

Thanks @Max Tsukino! Fingers crossed the pre registration site is open for a couple of days. - and not just for two hours before it shuts down.  Although normally based in China, I am doing this from Germany.... so some sleep would be great 😉

Ok, feeling pretty stupid here. Can anyone tell me how to see the different seat categories on the Adelaide venue map so that I can actually see where the seats are? The Ticketek site wants me to choose a seat category but doesn’t tell me where the seats are. I can’t even make the map bigger without it going blurry. Any ideas please? 

 

Nevermind! Just gave up trying to buy seats and got RZ instead. More expensive but at least I can see where it is!

it was the same for me with the Ticketmaster Map for Perth. I couldn't see where the seat numbers were. I had to choose from what blocks they had allocated to the pre-sale. 

this is why pre-sale is probably better value for those seeking GA & RED ZONE cause you know exactly what you are getting and they are sought after. at first I was a bit miffed that I couldn't choose from any block but I'm ok with it now cause, I got my seats and I don't have to go up against everyone in the public sale. there will be tens of thousands of people trying for the public sale and I don't want to get an ERROR message or whatever Ticketmaster put up when there are too many people online.

I received the same. They should avoid the words <ERROR> or deeply sorry, in their communication emails, especially when you ordered tickets from overseas. It had the same effect on me than the 'bomb' word in a plane. Pretty scary !

The process was fairly easy yesterday for Melbourne and Adelaide, only a couple of hiccups. If you haven't gotten tickets yet and plan to, keep another CC on hand during the purchase process in case your bank declines the purchase. Mine did because I had first purchased tickets from Ticketmaster for Melbourne and then tried through Ticketek to purchase for Adelaide. Apparently on the 2nd purchase the bank was afraid it was fraud seeing as how it was two international purchases so I had to enter another credit card number for the 2nd purchase and then dealt with my bank after I had the Adelaide purchase squared away.

Also, when dealing with Ticketmaster, if you are purchasing from another country, you must click on the "other Country" box to complete the e-tickets purchase. It's in the upper left corner of the purchase page. And also know your international phone code because you will have to enter the complete number where they are to send your e-ticket. If coming from the US, it's +1 and then your 10 digit cell number.

 

On another note, does anyone know the price of RZ for Melbourne and Sydney?

Has anyone had experience with trying for Red Zone in general on sale (re Sydney)? Wonder what the odds are?! I was able to get two in my basket in the first seconds of first pre sale but the payment froze and wouldn't process. I think my fault now in hindsight as put my mastercard cvc in instead of my amex, and forgot I swapped them over as payment method duh!!!!!!! Very stupid!

And still GA showing available for Sydney - makes we wonder how well it's selling? I didn't think GA usually hung around this long... Maybe because us diehard fans are aging with a bit more disposable income, and hence the demand for RZ over GA now, lol!!!!

I don’t know about this tour stop (obvi) but I managed to get two RZ for the opening night in Vancouver of the JT 2017 during the public sale.
