    Yeah, my heart almost stopped when I saw this e-mail subject line from Ticketmaster: IMPORTANT: Your U2 Ticket Order Thought for sure it was going to say “sorry, but you didn’t really get tickets” 🤓.

    We will most likely never know for sure, but my bet would be that the success rate was WAY more than 50%. There were probably many people who did get tickets for every one that didn’t. Most of those who had no problems won’t be on here talking about it.

    While this presale was obviously a disaster for many, it probably worked perfectly for thousands. I still don’t believe that it was a lottery for paid U2.com members. Something obviously went wrong, but I doubt that TM or the band would consider it to be the unmitigated disaster that it is being portrayed as here. Maybe I’m wrong, but the vast majority of people who got the tickets they wanted won’t bother to comment here so we have no way of knowing if the people who got shut out are in the minority.

    This was just one presale folks. Don’t give up all hope! There is still the general sale and there will undoubtedly be many more shows added.

    You need to keep trying when that happens. Other people might get them in their cart but then there are problems and they end up being available again. I’ve gotten GA even more than 30 minutes after the on sale time when at first it said there were none available. Try it in the public on sale.

    Yes, there will be GA available in the public on sale. Presales never include all tickets. Don’t give up on GA in the public on sale. Keep trying even if it says none are available and you still might get them.

    Yep, GA for life. At this point any seat would feel like being on the outside looking in 🎸.

    You won’t be able to buy 4 in this presale. You’ll have to get the other 2 through the Citi Presale or the general sale.

    Indeed, the mods deserve free GA tickets to every show for life 🎸🎸🎸.

    Terms such as “overpriced”, “beyond pathetic”, “f’d Me up again” and “worthless GA” come accross as bitching and moaning when you then go on to point out that you got 6 tickets.
  11. U2.com 2018 Subscription FAQ Thread

    So you bitch and moan about 4 coveted GA and 2 RZ tickets when others are getting nothing. You better hope the fact that you bought 6 tickets doesn't get all of them cancelled.

    Man, that’s a lot of dough for not-so-great tickets! You could buy regular GA and get there when doors open and probably get a better spot.

    AWESOME!!! Good luck and go get em!

    Fiends are much more fun than friends :). This is interesting. Seems to me that the CC entry method would be much more effective in preventing scalping than the verified subscriber/fan method. These GA tickets are now highly scalpable.

    Surprised to see that GA tickets for Tulsa are not CC entry. First time I have ever been able to say I'm looking forward to going to Tulsa :). One great thing about it will be that the setlist will be unknown since it is opening night :).
