  1. Finally got a DHL update. In the last 6 days, my CD has now traveled all the way from Austin, TX to Houston, TX...amazing! Even better, to travel a few states over to the southeast (where I am), it's only supposed to take 6 more days. Yes, I realize that's only 4 business days, but still... I tried to contact both DHL and OneLiveMedia earlier today to find out what was going on, and not sure if that had any impact or not. I'm guessing not. Both deferred to the other, and the OneLiveMedia reply was particularly laughable: "If you have not received your order within the next few weeks, please let us know and we will do what we can to locate your shipment." So, at least from my experience, DHL CD shipment could easily mean weeks, not days, and at this point, I'm only expecting to have the CD in hand at some point before the band release their next album...
  2. Yeah, I know what you mean. Mine was coming from Austin too (on the 29th), and based on no tracking updates (USPS still awaiting package), it appears it may still be there! (which is kind of a problem for me since I don't live in Austin) DHL is clearly addressing the situation today, though, no longer does it say December 2nd as the expected delivery day, now there is no expected delivery day indicated...
  3. My delivery did not happen today, as the email / initial estimate (DHL) indicated. I was kind of expecting this, though, since the shipment status had not been updating when I first posted, nor since. So don't necessarily trust shipping notification emails as a sign of definite progress either...
  4. For those not aware, there's a somewhat similar "experience" (sorry...hard to find a better word!) now on Amazon Music that includes commentary on some of the new songs (as well as old): Side by Side with U2.
  5. I got a shipping notification email for my CD two days ago...was wondering if others got the same. It's not been updating (location etc) and still showing Saturday, not tomorrow, as the delivery day. My tickets were through AXS not Tickemaster.
  6. Yeah, with all those prime expensive seats left all around the tour (except Montreal), we're probably all more inclined to expect something like that to actually happen!
  7. I saw GA (searching for 2) in Atlanta for Citi when there none the day prior for my Innocence search. The Innocence search was the very second the sale opened, the Citi search was a few minutes late. It was easy to form conclusions, and certainly the fact is that additional GA were released. However, luck/timing clearly still are a factor. Someone else here posted being able to get GA for Atlanta during Innocence (when I was unable). Also, immediately after I saw Citi GA, they disappeared again. Finally, I saw GA again during the first seconds of the verified "public" sale. They too disappeared immediately.
  8. GA in Atlanta is paper / barcode scan with E-ticket (PDF email upon purchase to print your own) option to avoid a $5 mailed ticket charge.
  9. See my post right above See my post directly above. Hmm...I wonder if the "U2" email I received was only because my venue wasn't Ticketmaster, or if all ticket buyers will eventually get that email and option (which includes digital).
  10. Well that was fast... Just got an email from "U2" (some onelivemedia.com email address) with download link and codes for each ticket - CD or digital (beginning only Dec 1). According to the email, you can forward the additional ticket codes (beyond your own) to applicable friends, family, etc (just one code per ticket obviously). Have only followed the link, not actually ordered, but certainly appears official, and assuming it will work...
  11. No email here yet, but ticketing was through AXS so probably why the delay as mentioned above. Isn't there supposed to be choice between digital download or CD?
  12. Based on the seating availability right now (still Citi presale), all non-$329 sections are apparently sold out (one other section does show up for single ticket, but not for pair). That's assuming no additional tickets are released for the public sale, though. 13 of the 14 $329 sections do still have seats. Can't really tell how many with the AXS ticketing system, but with seats around 15 rows from the floor sitting there unsold, probably still a fair amount left. But surely many more customers yet to participate too. I would have thought the Citi presale group might have been enough to sell this smaller venue out, but maybe that was limited too (lottery)? Of course, this would all seem to indicate some fan unwillingness to pay that much...especially when it's more like $375 per ticket (with the escalating charges per ticket group). It sounds like other bigger venues were much worse off, though, paying that much for upper level in some cases, so think Atlanta got lucky (aside from traffic problems!).
  13. Thanks amenaqut. I did see GA available today also through the Citi presale. For the Innocence presale, in my case at least, I was doing everything the same way as you, just no GA showed up for me then. Not that that's completely unexpected, I guess, but finding "new" GA's this morning for Citi was certainly a surprise.
  14. Excellent point. Not that this helps much, but just curious: does anyone know how many paid/eligible presale fans there are...is there a total membership count posted?
  15. Price (eventually) does matter. As an example, as of yesterday evening, there seemed to be a pretty good mix (all pricing levels) of tickets available in Atlanta...not the best seat in each price location, but not to the rafters yet either, even in the "moderate" ($175) sections. It's a tiny (relatively speaking) arena too, not sure there really is that bad a seat there (at least on the sides) given the size of the stage/screen/etc. Unfortunately there was no GA at any point during the day yesterday for me personally, but maybe a few got lucky. Then, when the Citi presale hit this morning, GA briefly was available. Everything left from the day prior in the non-$329 sections seemed to start disappearing, though (not sure if any new non-GA tickets were available briefly or not). But right now, nothing but $329 sections (which are only at the lower level - full length between stages) available. But there are still many very good (like 5 rows from the floor a few minutes ago) $329 seats of those available...almost can't believe I'm not trying to buy any more myself! So it would seem price eventually does get too high, no matter how the good the seats are, no matter how good the band is...
  16. I got 2 Innocence presale and 2 Citi presale (same venue) no problem. It appears I am also able to buy another 2 Citi at same venue ...which was my understanding previously (2 for Innocence, then 4 more for Citi) based on U2 website FAQs I think it was. I can't 100% confirm but I do get to credit card entry for the second 2 of Citi at least. (I don't want $329 tickets and that's all that's showing as left now, so that's why can't confirm 100%...)
  17. GA were briefly available for Atlanta at the start (I was 5 minutes late even) of Citi today...none showed up as available for the Innocence sale yesterday when I tried (first thing, through first hour, and sporadically later). So it would seem at least some tickets were held back from the two U2 membership groups. Seems crazy that a free presale (assuming you have that credit card) would have better options on day #3 than the paid membership presale one day prior (if not both days prior, based on much of the feedback here). But I guess that's the way it goes unfortunately... Tickets seem to have quickly disappeared with the Citi presale, though, hardly anything available (expensive and/or 3rd level) already compared to earlier this morning prior.
  18. I'm curious if anyone else here was able to get GA tickets to Atlanta? I did find the drop down way of searching by price or section , but GA still was not listed anywhere (today - first half hour of Innocence presale) that I saw? Thanks.
