  1. this family is prepared to spend the money! Like I said it is our favorite band!! When you LOVE the band like we 4 do. Then you go to see them at any cost. We were not suggesting four tickets for the same show. But rather four tickets over four shows!!
  2. Ing Don't tell people what they can see or do...that is a lack of respect and manners... Who needs someone who owns "the truth"! When you love a group...you want more...that is human nature...with 4 shows in arenas, stadiums, etc. everyone has a shot. I don't see anyone" Demanding" tickets. It is merely a suggestion. If there were only two shows in Montreal then I would take my tickets and be happy. But there are now two more shows. I have four fans. As for "new" fans. They are getting an opportunity to buy tickets. They just have to join U2.com. You make it sound like we are these greedy,inconsiderate children having a tantrum. We are not. We are fans like you who would like to see their favorite band.
  3. I'm with you Manon. Like I said. I have 4 members of my family. I introduced my two sons to U2. They are now fans and musicians. We all went to Boston. Of course,then we were allowed 4 tickets. I get it.two tickets for two shows. But c'mon two more shows and no new codes. I am rethinking my U2.com membership. There is no way I will have 4 people from the same house to all become U2.com members. It's not right
  4. I agree. 2 more shows added in Montreal. I have 4 members in my family. Do we all have to join U2.com to get tickets? I guess we'll flip a coin to see who gets to go. Or. Maybe U2 management will come to their senses and allow U2.com members to buy more than just two tickets.
  5. You're right!! My Bad. I apologize. But it doesn't change the fact that a family,of four U2 fans do not get to to go to the concert together
  6. I am so frustrated with U2 and management. First. Long time subscribers only allowed two tickets. I can accept that when there was only two shows announced. But now that two more shows were added to Montreal. I feel U2 subscribers or at least long term U2 .com subscribers should be given an opportunity to buy two more tickets. Please change the policy and open up pre-sales to the newly announced shows for U2.com subscribers!
  7. Foxboro Mass. September 20,2009. I've been a fan of the band since the day in the early 80's when my little brother(16) came home with an album from some "punk" band from Ireland(home of my ancestors) called U2. The album was "Boy". Didn't pay much attention to it until I heard "Into the Heart". Since that time I've been hooked. I have loved and followed and listened to U2 music for over 3 decades. Since that time I married the love of my life and I am the proud father of two college age boys(18)&(21) yrs old respectively. U2 music was always playing in our house. Both my sons were interested in music at a young age. They both played in the orchestra and bands at their school. From Elementary right through to H.S.Graduation. One a violinist. The other a French Horn player. It was brutal at first. But they are now both really good. They both became fans of U2 by proxy. They would sing along with me and my wife(not very well I might add). We'd dance around playing air guitars and drums. The youngest one with his Bono sunglasses. The first "pop" music they tried to play on their instruments was From a U2 music book. it sounded bad at first. But with practice,became to sound pretty good. The oldest son is now proficient in guitar. The youngest still in love with violin. They play music because of U2. Fast forward to Sept 20,2009. I'm sitting there watching the band. My two boys are up dancing,singing every song word for word. I'm like wow. The band has transcended a generation. Their hooked! I could have never imagined myself attending an Al Jolsen concert with my Dad. But here I am with my two sons. What an awesome feeling.
