  1. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Jumping in with "best since" HTDAAB. Why? Simple... I very much LIKED the past two albums but this one, unlike those, is constantly leaving songs behind in my head... And not just the singles/possible singles. Atomic Bomb was the last to do that. Love Is All We Have Left, Little Things, and especially 13 = Absolute brilliance. I'll happily rock out to The Blackout any day.... And The Showman is entirely unlike anything they've ever done before. Weak spot? I'm not a big fan of the dance remix of Best Thing that made it to the deluxe album. That's it. Sure time will tell if this take holds up... But for now the only albums I put ahead of the one are (In MY preferred order) AB, JT, HTDAAB, and ATYCLB. I like it THAT much.
  2. Funny thing is, the NEW stadium almost looks like the 360 stage... If it were a football stadium.
  3. This morning is the public onsale of U2's first concert in Atlanta in 9 years. That concert was held at the Georgia Dome. The Georgia Dome was just imploded this morning. Just a fun little factoid that just dawned on me. Hope to see everyone in May!
  4. Best presale ever

    Glad to hear it went well for you. I am also one of the fortunate ones. That said, I don't see how anyone can call this the "best presale" given the size and scope of well documented issues people encountered.

    Text goes to phone but you can use a different device to enter the code and get your tickets. You should be fine!

    Repeating my comment from a few moments ago...don't think you're going to get anywhere with phone support, because, frankly, I don't know the phone reps really know what's going on. Best bet is to reach out to the site mods as described in the thread. Really looks like they ARE helping everyone...but are also overwhelmed so its slow going.

    That is pretty much the opposite of what everyone else has posted. Innocence emails should be tonight. Unfortunately, I think the phone reps are getting very limited information. If you don't get the email as expected tonight, your best bet is to reach out to the mods as detailed in this thread. They're clearly a bit overwhelmed ATM but are indeed getting back to everyone!

    The mods are the real rock stars here. At the end of the day MOST subs will likely end up with the tickets they wanted...and it is entirely due to the mods working their asses off and going above and beyond the call of duty b/c the system that was supposed to be in place is failing left and right.

    In part you pay for not having to line up and not having as crowded of a spot. I did Redzone the very first time they offered them (360)...and LOVED it. That said...they've been quite a bit more expensive the past several tours so I've gone back to GA and had every bit as much fun! You just have to decide if it's worth it to you to spend the extra $ and avoid lining up.

    Awesome news. It sounds like the Mods really are coming through for people who got stuck in the confusion!

    I would gather it is this: http://insider.ticketmaster.com/spec-ticketing/
  12. U2.com 2018 Subscription FAQ Thread

    Okay...I THINK the way it worked was that I could access the event page...and even the waiting room...but then ONCE you go to the actual event purchase page you need to enter your code before you can select tickets. FYI: at 7:43 I received ONE text from '73767' with an 8 letter code. This is the code that I used without any problem. I never received a confirmation email beforehand nor did I receive another text with a link or additional context, so it's a little strange - but as long as you get this text with a code a bit before 8, you ought to be in good shape.

    Think it depends on venue. Atlanta isn't purely CC like my experience was in DC for the JT show, but it did give me the option to print out my tickets or pull it up on my mobile app. If nothing has changed in NY since 2015, EVERYTHING there is paper as required by law.

    Again...more than happy to help! I know I'd be on here looking for input if the shoe were on the other foot!
