  1. Just received a very odd voicemail from TM, on the voicemail it says to call 855-867-5297 if I'm still interested in tickets, I call and it goes to U2.com and of course nobody there can figure out why TM would be giving out and directing people to call there?

    The message wont voice to text but I can send it to you via text or email.

      I got a similar call!!  Not sure how they got my number!  It came through as an unknown number on my phone - I typically don't answer those numbers, but I decided to answer this one.  Bigwave - I'm happy to email you what the conversation was, for some reason my ability to email you through here has been turned off though.

      My message is a voicemail from an unknown number and it wont voice to text so I cant print/email it. I can forward it to another phone via message however.

       

  2. I give up!

    This is just too much, the stress of all the presale issues is just not worth it anymore. I have been doing this a very long time, (including the 2005 mess) and every tour it seems to get worse! Codes at the last minute, invalid codes, no GAs and when we did decide to bite the bullet and pay up for seats in LV the AXS site wont let you complete your purchase. So those of yo who somehow managed to get tickets I applaud you and will miss the many friends I have made over the years that I look forward to seeing at the live shows.
  3. I got a green light without re upping? All i had to do was authorize my phone to accept SMS messages. Am I not going to get that text from TM now? Super frustrating as I have not yet forgotten what it took to get JT30 tickets last year.
  4. Absolute Disgrace! (MERGED)

    I think that someone needs to look into the legality of TM "flipping" tickets on their sister site as the sale is going on and at hugely inflated prices. They have figured out a way to really screw fans who are desperate and will out of frustration pay the money to ensure they will get to see the band that we all love so much. This is the last one for me, I too have been doing this for a long time but this is that last straw for me. No more subscriptions, no more of the presale game, no more TM bullshit!
  5. Presale Disappointment / But Still My Fave Band (MERGED)

    ^^^ well said, I have a hard time expressing myself but what about the "resale" tickets that are on there too? This whole experience has left me very disappointed and it really looks like TM is just fucking everyone over on this.
  6. If you have tried that, different browsers, the app, etc, you may want to try calling Ticketmaster and ordering over the phone. Yea I tried calling them at the first sign of a problem and they told me that it was an internet only presale and there is nothing they can do.
  7. I started getting it at 2:30 yesterday, others were still buying well past that time.
  8. Yes, you can. Thanks very much I cant, I get a message, "Were sorry, there are no more tickets available for this promotion" I was able to get two GAs for Seattle then wanted to get two seats (I broke a vertebrae in my lower back this summer and not sure if I will be able to stand that long) but cannot get back in. Tried cleaning out and rebooting but nothing changes and it doesn't care about what venue I'm looking at either.
  9. "We're sorry, there are no more tickets available for this promotion." Pretty hard to "keep trying" as others have said on here when you get a message like that from the TM website. Anyone else? Is there a cut off time for the presale?
  10. Yea me too! Trying both the phone app and desktop. No one at ticketmaster until 9AM west coast time so I cant even call them! I have been doing this for years with lots of other bands too and nobody has the troubles that U2 has?
  11. Came in late because we have GAs for Van2 and last night was just supposed to be a recon mission. Wound up South side right where Edge fell off the stage, you can actually see us in the footage that they were running on the network news that we saw this morning on Good Morning America. Point is the people on the rail right in front of us were there all day in the GA line and they got a spot on the rail, good job on their part. We instead toured Vancouver, met a .com friend from Los Angeles and another friend that just landed earlier from England, drank some pints, ate tons of wings and we were all right there too only we had a awesome day in Vancouver, not in the GA line. Tonight we decided we will probably do the same but hang back further but more to the middle as you cannot see the band in the screen if you are too close. A quick note about the screen. If you are on or near the rail and are looking up you cant see the band. It took quite a while before we realized that Larry was right in front of us during Invisible. Step away from the screen folks. I have been doing this a while and have sent plenty of days in the GA line, I have paid my dues, and have had some really great experiences but it really not that necessary for this tour. Relax, have a beer, use the bathroom you are going to be really close no matter where your at on the floor!
  12. Honestly I was disappointed, first night it was way off for at least the first three songs but that was understandable as they had never had it with a full house before. Bonos vocals came through clear as a bell and he had two very good nights in Vancouver. You cannot feel Adams bass at all, even outdoors at a 360 show you could feel it. Over all after it was sorted out it sounded ok but not very loud, I know that was kind of the idea but on the floor for both nights and it wasn't loud enough and not enough bass. Interested to see how people higher up I the seats feel about the new sound system.
  13. GA Vancouver...how was it ?

  14. So, looks like there is beginning to be a bit of talk about how to make it a little more fair for everyone to have a shot being up front for a U2 show. Not everyone has the time or the means to camp out three days in advance of a show. This doesn't make them any less of a fan, does it make those same people who are always in the front of the line any more of a fan?
  15. From the "official map" that was emailed to RZ ticket holders it appears as thought there is a N side and a S side and as of right now my strategy will be to enter from the N side and go around the E stage as fas as I can.
