  1. It's not that pre-sale tickets aren't transferrable. It's that tickets in specific locations, i.e. general admission, we're not transferrable. This isn't about TM trying to screw you or running a scam. Try reading the fine print next time Try not panicking and buying the first thing that pops up. Try being patient. These are stadium shows and there are always lots of seats to he had at face value. And I bet at below face value by the day or week of the show.
  2. U2 doesn't do rock concerts anymore. They do shows. They should set up in Las Vegas since they are all about the flash and the sizzle and with little or no variation in setlists. I'd much prefer a straight ahead rock concert without all bells and whistles. The music stands up by itself and doesnt need all the Vegas style flash.
  3. I've been saying this for years. That's why if you see 2 consecutive shows you've basically seen the same shows everyone else has without needing to see anymore on a tour. They just aren't the type of band that wants to be spontaneous or fly by the seat of their pants. Or leave anything to chance. Not going to lie I'm spoiled from seeing multiple Springsteen and Pearl Jam shows with no 2 shows being the same. Example....saw PJ in Toronto for 2 shows in 2011. They played 56 different songs over the 2 nights. Plus Neil Young joined in one night.
  4. Simmer down They don't have the actual tickets yet. They are free to list and charge whatever they want. No one is forced to pay whatever is being asked. Take a deep breath and count to 10.
  5. I have read all the posts on here including the horrible stories from the last 2 shows. You all should know that this is how MSG operates the day of major events. It's been this way for decades and nothing changes or will change. The box office personnel, building staff, and the security are corrupt and have been for decades. I applaud your attempts to affect change but it won't happen. Keep posting and twittering and maybe U2s management might change how tickets are released day of show. Thanks again for your efforts.
  6. Is it too late to do a charge back on my card because I've never received what I paid for?
  7. I would I was one of those fans outside Hershey Stadium when they rehearsed it. Closest I've gotten to hearing it live and it's the only unplayed song I want to hear.
  8. The press release included this quote from Bono, "We are going to try to have a completely different feeling fron night one to night two." Sorry Bono, but I think it's "not nice" of you to make your fans spend more money just for two shows to experience the "theme" of the tour. There are a lot of people who cannot afford two shows. Bono did not and does not force anyone to ever by 1 ticket to 1 show or a dozen shows. We all do it with free will. If you can only afford 1 show then thats great too. You will still basically see the same show everyone else sees at different venues in different cities.
  9. Based on where you said you wanted to be "red zone rail on the side kinda near the middle" you don't need to go in any earlier than 8. Go out. Have a nice relaxing dinner. Walk in at 8. You'll be able to walk right up to where you want to be. NO need to be in line all day or to even show up at 4.
  10. Good luck with this. On any given night the "diehards" are maybe 5-10% of the crowd. The remainder are seeing U2 for the first time or maybe the first time in a long time or maybe even the 20th time over 30 years. In any case they will NEVER stop playing the warhorses. Its like asking Springsteen to stop playing Born To Run. Or Pearl Jam to stop playing Alive. Or the Rolling Stones to stop playing Satisfaction. Or the Who to stop play Won't Get Fooled Again. None of these bands play for the pleasure of their "diehard" fans. They play for the pleasure of ALL their fans.
  11. Shows have been ending 10:30ish but each show ending time is dependent on the start time which has been 8:15ish.
  12. I walked in at just after 8 last night.Went right to the outer corner of the South side red zone barrier. From there I could easily see the whole show. Plus an easy view of the big screen and all of catwalk action. When they moved to the second stage it was easy to walk over and enjoy that from just a few feet away. Then when they were done an easy walk back to my original spot near the red zone. NO reason to go in any earlier and definitely NO reason to wait in line for hours. Hi Axlsdaddy-- Thanks for the very helpful GA tips. What did you think of the show?? Did they play well? I've heard bootlegs of both Vancouver shows and thought they didn't sound very good, although I think they always improve markedly as tours go on and they get into better practice. I've been to at least 1 show on every U2 tour since 1981. Rule of thumb is never go to the first couple of shows. Especially the big Vegas style show tours (360, PoP, etc). Takes them awhile to work out all the technical kinks. I thought the sound was was awesome. The new sound system is great. I thought the band sounded great. I don't niggle over the little stuff. And YES they always improve as the tours progress.

  14. time to solve this puzzling question: what's the name of the song that plays before U2 hits the stage... =P Beat on the Brat. Ramones Both nights in Phoenix it was Patti Smith...People Got The Power. The volume of the pre show music changed as People Got The Power started.
