    U2.com 2018 Subscription FAQ Thread

    The two ticket maximum is not a reasonable number for Experience members. The minimum should be four and the opportunity to use codes for multiple legs. Especially now that the band, live nation and tickemaster are doing their best to eliminate the bots and scalpers.
  3. It's too bad there's no chance to open up for the members to buy again. I understand that rules are rules but when additional dates are added, why not give the opportunity to the fans and not the touts/scalpers? We all know how the chips are stacked against the true fans when it comes to online-general sales.
  4. Looking for floors please. Need two.

    FANS?

    To add to this thread, you also have to consider the season ticket holders for the Blue Jays. They all get first right of refusal for their seats...so many of those tickets may be sold off for a quick buck to recoup the cost of season's tickets. I'm sure many ticket holder's supplement their annual fees by scalping tickets to events at the Rogers Centre.
  6. If anyone was left with an extra in the flurry of it all this week please let me know. Need as many as three but will take a single for the Toronto show.

    Secondary / Ebay / Resale Sites!?! (MERGED)

    Very annoying! Over 1400 resale tickets on Stubhub for Toronto and that's as the general sale was starting. I bet that number quadruples by the afternoon

    Additional North American Dates?

    I was able to get tickets through Red Hill presale and two additional in general for Toronto. Many friends were shut out as the venue sold out quickly. Any news on additional dates?

    Red Zone - is it worth it? (MERGED)

    I have done RZ twice for stadium shows....agree with the other postings about the arena shows...the vicinity marked off for RZ wasn't much of an advantage. I would say the fixed pricing of $350 vs $87 for the GA's is my determining factor. The last two RZ's I purchased cost me $180 and $220. so jumping up that much when I like to see multiple shows isn't in the cards. I will say if you want a more relaxed environment then the RZ is a good option.

    Red Zone/VIP

    Keep trying. Was able to quickly secure red zone for Toronto with Red Hill presale code - definitely needed the code ! Very smooth - under two minutes from start to finish. $350 / ticket with the surcharges. Good luck ! I ended up playing it safe with GA's....I've done RZ twice at Rogers Centre....a nice spot to watch but triple the price of GA's is steep!!!

    Wasn't able to access redzone with presale codes this AM in Canada for the Toronto show...

    Empty Seats

    Attended Toronto 1&2 this week and was quite dismayed by the empty seats on night 2 and the relatively small GA crowds for both nights. Especially frustrating being stuck with 300 level seats the second show due to the pre-sale purchase policy (covered at length in many other threads). Anyway, my wife and I had amazing seats for show 1 and had to settle for the 300 level with our daughters the second night (purchasing 4 tickets in general sale was a nightmare). Before the show started on night two I couldn't help but notice the 300 level seating was filled well before 8pm but large sections of the lower bowls (gold and platnum seating for those familiar with the ACC seating) were empty. Even as the show kicked in there were seats that never filled. The GA's were noticeably thin for both shows. I've been going to shows since 1992 and the GA's appeared half full in comparison to other arena tours. U2 put on back to back stellar performances but I am left wondering days later if any other venues are experiencing the same??

    Floor versus Red Zone

    You can manuever to the edge of the crowd for GA's ....planning on getting GA's for the second show with my kids but they are a little older and both taller for girls (6'0 and 5'8)

    Floor versus Red Zone

    Red Zone was great for stadium (did it three time) not sure of the benefit for arenas though? At three times GA price and right around the same price for lower bowl tickets I don't see the benefit beyond a little preferential treatment before the show...and of course the donation to the RED campaign
