  1. Wondering if they're continuing the E & I tour in 2019 (i.e., maybe another US leg, South American or Asian leg, etc.)? I vaguely recall some comments from the band that they might not do so--perhaps because they've been pretty busy with the I & E, JT, and now E & I tours--?? I sure hope there's more legs--the E & I tour is excellent (saw both 2018 Chicago shows). Whoops, sorry--just realized there's a thread on this topic a page or two down this list. I'd delete this topic if I could to cut down on duplication, but I don't see a way to do that.
  2. I agree--I'd love to hear it.
  3. Hi other folks intending to see the Chicago shows (hopefully!). My wife and I will be coming from out of town, so we're thinking about staying in a hotel (maybe in the Loop area--??)--but then also wondering how to get to the show and back. Any tips/ideas??

    Even more Dublin shows?

    Pure speculation, but I'm wondering if there might be even more Dublin shows (beyond the current 4). The 3rd & 4th shows sold out super-fast, and there's no other dates after Dublin--? I hope so!
  5. Will accept presale code, but then any ticket search gets a "Sorry, there was an error with the search. Try again later." message. ??
  6. As I just said in the other thread, mich40's suggestion to try another browser worked!! Thanks!! My Dad (and I) are happy people, and appreciate the help!

    NYC #3 Presale nonfunctional

    Using a different browser worked!! Thanks for the help--my Dad (and I) appreciate it!
  8. Accepts code, but then gives error message "Sorry, there was an error with the search. Try again later.". ??
  9. Aaargh. Yes, his code starts with that. Did any additional instructions go out last night? He's logged on to his TM account, and inputting his (completely previously unused, including for the US leg dates already announced and the JT tour) presale code--which is then accepted as valid. Only when then searching for tix does the error message occur repeatedly.
  10. I could tell him to do that, Max, but this looks like a TM issue. The code is accepted--it's only the search that gives the error message. Also, JCF (above) reports the same issue.
  11. It's my father who's trying to get the tix, not me! His presale code wasn't used before.
  12. That's not it, Max. This is definitely a valid code (not used before), which the TM site accepts.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I do agree that "The Little Things" is OK. Regarding SOI, do you mean "Cedarwood Road"? (Cedars of Lebanon is from NLOTH). I also agree that Iris, RBW, and CR are OK songs--but to me, they're just not particularly interesting musically (OK, I'll give Iris a little slack here). And geez, SOI had awful tunes like California and Volcano. Bottom line (for me)--SOI had a few terrible songs, a bunch of OK ones (which, however, lack distinction, so they don't do anything for me over time), and a few genuinely excellent ones.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I'm sorry, you're absolutely right--I quoted you misleadingly. To clarify, I agree with you for all PRE-SOI albums (i.e., grow on me with repeated listens), but definitely NOT with SOI (unlike you), and I'm very concerned I'll also "not grow on" SOE. The issue for me is that most of the stuff on SOI (and the pre-release stuff on SOE) sounds very undistinguished/unoriginal and even trite (with the exceptions I mentioned above). It's weird--it's like anybody could have made these records/songs.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    While I haven't heard the whole SOE album yet (just the 4 songs released beforehand), I'm quite concerned that I'll agree with you. With SOI, for example, I gave it many listens, but ultimately concluded (excepting EBW--the live version, not so much the album version, Lucifer's Hands, and maybe The Troubles) that it's a mediocre album (which mostly doesn't even sound like them)--by far my least favorite U2 album. What I've heard so far from SOE isn't encouraging, which is really disappointing.
  16. Unused presale codes have always been good for added shows on the same tour--and should be now. If they're not, that would be hugely unfair, and there will be even more of a fan revolt.

    Rollover Shows???

    There's no reason for any unused presale codes not to work for added shows--it's always worked that way in prior tours. That said, given the awesome level of screwup in this initial wave, I'm concerned that there might be complications of some sort--let's pray not.

    Anyone Receive the Email Today?

    Wow! Horrible! What's going on???

    Anyone Receive the Email Today?

    Thanks, Max! (re the mysterious "link"). Any ideas why my wife hasn't gotten her email?

    Are GAs "credit card entry"?

    No one knows yet (a major oversight by TM or LiveNation, seriously inconveniencing everyone). But, given the last 2 tours, very likely.

    Anyone Receive the Email Today?

    Two things: 1) I got my u2.com presale email c. 1 hour ago. But my wife (also experienced group) hasn't--?? 2) In the email, it refers to a "link" involved. What's this for?? Can't one just go to the TM site and put in the presale code? Or does the "link" take you to some crucial intermediate location first??

    I understand your concern re the prices generally, but am puzzled at your apparent surprise (?). The current tour pricing is not much more than the last 2 (or even 3) tours. OK, somewhat more, but not a lot (especially re GA).
  23. Did you renew your membership (even if it's current now?). If not, that could be it. Mine originally showed complete as well, even though I hadn't renewed yet (which is required for 2018 u2.com presale access)--UNLESS you used none of your presale allotment for the JT tour (then you're OK without renewing, as long as you're current now).

    Red Zone vs GA

    Well, RZ will likely sell out super-fast.

    Tickets transferable?

    Frustratingly, no one knows right now--which is truly disrespectful to would-be buyers (i.e., us), who need to know vital things like this in advance. The safest thing (pending further info) is to assume that at least GA and RZ (and other VIP tix) will (again) be CCE, with NO transfers, reselling (even on TM), etc. for these tix. Even seated hard (non-CCE) tix may not be transferrable/sellable, especially if bought through presales.
