    OK - So today i got to go for my first ever pre-sale for the Singapore show. Due to location and circumstance, I had never been in a position to go through this process before, so having been a member of U2.com for years, the Singapore announcement was a dream come true. Having watched from the sidelines for a number of years, i had always thought the moderators did a fanstastic job, and felt a strong sense of community within Zootopia. Today, when things went a bit awry in the presales, I experienced first hand what I have watched for years and I am very grateful. The image below pretty much sums up the roller coaster from this morning and for me two things are very clear: 1. buying tickets for these concerts is in no way a neutral experience, and 2. The moderators annd community are just fantastc. What is also missing from the picture is "thankfullness" to the mods, and to the community who actively participate in helping others. This is literally off the chart.

    Now that the pre-sales are (mostly) over, I thought it was high time to give a place to show our appreciation to our moderators. They volunteer their time to help us out, often at crazy times of the night. So to @Max Tsukino, @mich40& @bigwave a huge thanks for all your work helping us during the presales (when we were stressed !) We all owe you a drink when we see you 😊 See you on the road or here in zootopia during the tour soon

    no it is really ridiculous that U2.com does not give a statement because of the delay. I think it is really time that expresses u2. if you say you send the CD in the spring and we have summer now and still nothing, then something should happen now 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 sommer of waiting

    I saw U2 for the first time in October 1989 in Sydney on the love town tour. I was still at school, had just started to drive, and lining up for 3 hours at the Jolimont Centre in Canberra to get tickets also saw me get my first ever parking ticket. In those days (before mobile phones) my sister had no way of telling if I would be successful to get tickets for us, so she went for telephone sales and we ended up with four tickets, two of which we passed onto a friend and her brother. All four of us had a road trip to Sydney and stayed in a hotel near Ultimo (where the Entertainment centre is). It was my first night out in Sydney - the atmosphere was electric – U2 cover bands in pubs (which I couldn't enter because I was underage) – just incredible. Next time I saw U2 was when I was living in the UK with my wife in 2001, and managed to get tickets for Paris, and soon after in Birmingham. For Paris, we made a holiday out of it. Arrived on Bastille day, got absolutely drenched in a downpour, Salvador Dali museum, and so many other great memories. At the concert, we asked some fellow Aussies in front of us to take a pic (35 mm film!). They kept hesitating because another Aussie behind us was photobombing us. They asked him to stop because they didn't want to waste our film and he just said “Nope!”. So our pic at that concert has some bloke behind us with a huge grin on his face (see below). For Birmingham, we drove from Southampton in our “new” second hand car – which decided to stop suddenly on the way. We were just stuck. Again – no mobile phone, no one would stop to help us….we were just stuck (along with an Italian colleague from work – who was not very happy about the situation). Eventually the car started again and we made it to the show while the opening act was still playing. We never figured out what went wrong with the car. In 2005, I was living in NZ and managed to get tickets for the March 17, 2006 show in Auckland for the Vertigo tour. The show sold out so quickly – there was a news story showing people crying because they missed out – so, I considered myself very lucky. My wife and I had been living apart for 15 months while I started a new job and she was due to join me on March 1 2006 - so the concert was going to be our first trip away from Wellington. That was the leg that was postponed due to The Edge’s daughter being sick. We hung onto our tickets ready for the rescheduled shows, and when they were announced we were unable to attend as it was a little more than a week out from the expected arrival of our first child. So, we were able to get a refund on the ticket and of course our disappointment didn’t last long at such an exciting time of our lives. Since then we have never been at a situation that would have allowed us to easily seen the band. So when the Singapore announcements came there was no question that my wife and I would want tickets, and my daughter, whose arrival nearly 13 years ago prevented us seeing the rescheduled show in NZ, will also come along (and of course her younger brother). I used up all my four presale allotments for Nov 30th show, and I will happily be competing for the Dec 1st show in the public sales as I have every other time I have seen the band. If luck is with me, my wife and I will get an extra show. If not, we move on with yet more happy memories and another story to tell. This time my kids’ wide eyed faces will be in the mix and I just can’t wait.

    if you even don't care to share an update on the delay to me this shows great disrespect to your client/fans from U2.com. For the future don't mention dates just say next year.......

    https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/james-henke-rolling-stone-writer-and-rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame-chief-curator-dead-at-65-856396/?fbclid=IwAR3bHxgTDv0qYEHM9IgClTzdLVMWd-2Q8Efn5Wq_PQp8TUNDupavU2d8hA8 RIP to Jim Henke, a major player in the music industry, who had roles at Elektra Records, the Rock & Roll HOF, Rolling Stone magazine, etc. A native Clevelander, he eventually rose to be chief curator at the Rock Hall. He was hugely influential on U2 and Bono’s turn towards social justice. I only had 1 real interaction with him, but I think it shows what kind of guy he was: In February 2003, Cleveland’s Rock & Roll HOF opened a U2 exhibit (“In the Name of Love: Two Decades of U2”) showcasing a ton of previously unseen memorabilia from throughout their history -- much of it donated by the band’s internal historian, drummer Larry Mullen Jr. With me being a U2 nerd, I took my fiance with me to check it out. We arrived early in order to explore the other parts of the Rock Hall, and I discovered some U2 photos (not part of the aforementioned new exhibit) which had been mis-labeled (they mixed up 1997’s Popmart and 2001’s Elevation tours). I happened to run into Henke in the hall as he was scurrying about, prepping for the U2 exhibit opening, and informed him of the mistake. JH: Oh, man. We gotta fix that before the exhibit starts. Me: Yeah. JH: (Calls someone on a walkie to correct the labels.) Thanks for the catch. Me: No problem. Good luck with the opening. (We both start walking away.) JH: Hey. (I turn around.) You seem like a real fan. I assume you’re here for the U2 exhibit? Me: Yes. JH: Do you want a private tour, before we open it to the public? Me: Uhh...yeah! So that’s what he did. He didn’t have to; I was a total stranger and as a Rock Hall bigwig, Henke obviously had far more pressing matters to attend to. But he did, based solely on the love of music and being nice to a fellow fan. There are worse legacies to leave behind.

    I've created this thread so that people looking for tickets have the best chance if obtaining then, without resorting to scalped tickets. Please use this thread to notify other fans of ticket drops. NOT to discuss other issues, such as scalping, how tickets are selling etc. They can be discussed elsewhere. People will then be able to use the FOLLOW option (at the bottom of the page), to be notified when ticket drops occur. Without being bombarded by messages, which will happen if excessive replies are posted here. What is a TICKET DROP? A TICKET DROP is when the official seller releases more tickets, long after the general sale has begun. Why & when do TICKET DROPS occur? TICKET DROPS occur for a couple of reasons. Firstly, they occur in the days leading up to the show, to increase supply, minimising the demand for scalped tickets. Secondly, once the stage is setup, & sightlines are confirmed, additional tickets may be released (some of which may have restricted views).

    ...and what a Men’s Final today! Djokovic holds on to beat Federer 7-6, 1-6, 7-6, 4-6, 13-12 (and winning the first-ever 5th-set tiebreak in a Grand Slam Major tournament ever, 7-3). Just a phenomenal match which confirmed that these two are two of the very best in the world in tennis, and the best two on grass courts specifically. AMAZING Final! 🎾

    As much as I wanted Rafa to win today, I have to take my hat off to Roger Federer. 37 and no signs of slowing down. Most players have retired at his age and he's into another Wimbledon final. I feel privileged to be able to watch such great players making history. Maybe he's secretly an elf?

    A 2019 gift should be completed and ready to ship the first week of January 2019. Now it is closer to the start of 2020 than the start of 2019 and still nothing. Very poor. Also as this is included as part of a paid subscription is is not a gift but rather an item that we bought and paid for in advance.

    My mom has cancer and got her recent blood test results. The counts are way down. The chemo pills were not working but now they are. She's still not sick from them, nor is she losing her hair. She's eighty years old and can do more than I can. I don't think this is going to kill her. I'm not God so I'm still praying. I've been very worried. Many thanks to the powers that be. Great news.

    It might not sound good, but I had a big argument with my older sisters - which led to some honest discussions which I hope have ultimately helped us understand each other better.

    I'm from America and have only bought tickets within America.. Many times, I've been able to get a great seat for a show if I buy a single seat. I usually get up front doing it. My friends do as well. Some times we are a few rows behind the other but we have great seats. I like going to one U2 show alone when there are multiple nights.. It's a completely different experience when I watch the show alone. IE Chicago first night I was alone. EI Chicago second night I was alone. Both were awesome with a unique perspective. FYI

    Respect. I'm an asia from Sri Lanka, and this is my first ever U2 show. Was waiting for them to come to ASIA for 10 years and like you said I'm dreaming to get to the front in rail so you know. I don't know whether il be able to see U2 ever again, im guessing other asian fans feels the same too. But having said that I know, we will have to queue, but doubt asians will queue for days, I myself having spine disabilities, could queue for a maximum of 6 hours I would say, which I doube will be enought to get a railing spot.. lets see how luck turns out but if there are multiple entrances for GA that means it would be easier for people like us isnt it?

    Got my tickets - kids coming too! I have been a member of this community for years never once thinking I would be in a position to access presales. Therefore I always told myself I would be more calm. After ignoring advice from my wife and using my phone over her laptop, I am now getting the world's biggest "I told you so" as well as a few glares for shouting at my phone and a few moments of panic. This is probably old news to many of the experienced campaigners here but will share my learnings here anyway: 1.Much better booking through computer for anyone in the same position. 2. Always listen to your wife! Thanks to the mods and others for your helpful advice.
