  1. Does anyone know if this has any meaning or is it like the US where the number is really meaningless ? Based on the seat map I could have had a much better 'Seat' but a higher number, just assuming there aren't really seats and the number doesn't mean much?
  2. I'd say I agree with Max but really depends on bank, card etc.. Mine showed up a couple of hours after charging it but I also called my credit card company in advance to say I'd have some foreign transactions from Australia. Just to be safe, I'd call your CC company they may have it on a hold waiting for you to confirm.
  3. Good info.. Thx. Hoping to make it to this one
  4. Just hoping by tomorrow morning to score a ticket then it's worth the drive but for those definite enjoy!
  5. I will be there for Dublin 3 & 4
  6. Those people are stupid.. However I like the dedication and since I am not a fan of the fan run GA number thing I hope those people all get right to the front or where ever they want to be
  7. I know we all wish they played different songs at times or left out a few of the staples.. Since they are supposedly doing a special set at the Apollo I was thinking tonight in Uniondale we could get a couple of rehearsal treats.. Whatcha think?
  8. I will be there I am doubtful on the Sirius thing since I believe the show is a WBAB show but who knows
  9. I totally hear ya!! Not truly upset but disappointed that it's on my B'day and tried every avenue. At the same time I saw opening night will see Nassau Saturday and the end of tour in Dublin but missing the special show right near home is a bummer... Such is life I guess
  10. And yes if anyone needs a +1 it would be a great b'day gift
  11. Anyone know when the U2.com winners are being announced?
  12. For those interested you can get GA tix right now
  13. Me too.. it's on my B'day. Already reached out to someone I know at Sirius who said no way he can get me in
  14. Only need a single but still holding out hope on a GA someone (a fan) offered me one for double but not paying that
  15. apparently the other day and I missed it.. damn work!!!
  16. didnt see those.. juat boarding my flight still hopeful for a GA.. See ya at one of these shows maybe
  17. I hope so.. I missed the release and hit up everyone here saying they had 1 but all gone
  18. Agreed no bad place.. just hoping to score a GA as I am flying in ticketless.. The gamble is real hahaha
  19. I totally agree but U2 along with some of my other favorites and most acts is they feel the HAVE TO play those "Hits" for the fans that are coming to see those songs. Now as a big music fan this annoys me because like yourself and many commenting here, we think the majority of tickets purchasers are like us and want to hear the variety but they, and most bands, are playing for the masses and the people who will pay $700+ for a pair of tickets to hear with or without you and sunday bloody sunday. The music business is a business and they want to make sure those people are happy because people like you and I are going to go see them anyway, those people would stop if next time they went they didn't play all these massive hits they have come to expect.
  20. I can think of a bunch but Mysterious Ways and One would top my list for sure.. I could live without most of the ones named above but do enjoy the stadium crowds during Elevation and a couple others; they can skip most of what they did last tour and I'd be happy
  21. I found some of the responses in the thread interesting. Personally I don't believe in anything 'Fan Run' if it's not sanctioned by the venue then if a fellow fan(s) is going take it upon themselves to create a system I am going to take it upon myself to ignore it. Manohlive hit on this above and I have seen this type of thing more often then not. I don't mean that to sound like I'm being an A**hole if there is no 'system' created by the band/venue then a GA ticket is a GA ticket and I will get on a line, enter like anyone else and that's it. I gave up getting there super early because there was a lot of this fan BS people marking their hands with numbers and coming back hours later and sh*t it's ridiculous. We all purchased a GA ticket and that's it but due to this and not lining up early any more I typically stand toward the back or out of the way in GA because I don't want to deal with the BS or the pushing and shoving of the crowd but, in all honesty, there was one show I pushed my way up a bit and don't feel bad about it at all, it's GA there is no rule.
  22. There is a hilton or doubletree not far.. I am going to look into doing this show, hoping to find a GA ticket somehow and probably stay there but have in the past, definitely walk-able
  23. Well there are bands that go out and play shows for much less. Yes I understand U2 is huge, I understand it is all about business and not music, regardless of what most want to believe.. SO!!! Knowing the types of fans this band has had for decades and thinking about how many shows the average fan goes to and the fact that you are charging them 50 for membership in a 'fan club' that is really just early access to ticket allotments. WHY NOT just change the rules, we get it, you want more $$ so why not just say you can buy 2 tickets to, up to 3 shows (probably the average person here goes to 3), can choose GA or any price level you want and there is an additional $25 a ticket added. LiveNation/Ticketmaster will still make even more money and we get a little more even if it isn't perfect, you could do it CC entry or mail order, etc etc. Bottom line is it would give real fans the opportunity to see a few shows, if they wanted to and there are safe guards, to some degree, that keeps them from just buying and reselling them which OBVIOUSLY Ticketmaster/Live Nation DO NOT care about as long as they get a piece of this secondary market as well. So, if the only resale for those tickets was on TM I am sure they would see the light they get $25 more upfront and then IF someone actually sold the tickets they would make a % of that money as well.. it's WIN WIN WIN WIN for Ticketbastard with a chance for fans to see a few shows. Of course I don't love the idea as a whole but I am willing to pay the 25 a ticket more (as I have in the past) to know I can get to to a few shows without being completely raped.
  24. Nick, New York does not allow for CC entry so if you are getting physical (or E) tickets you should be good but of course like any ticket at any show there is some risk although Stubhub does provide some protection.
