    Nashville GA information

    Am curious if this means you check in once between Thursday (!) and Saturday and then show up at 4:30 pm the day of the show (Saturday).

    New code for Irish shows?

    I received an email earlier today with information on the presales but interestingly it included an old code for the Joshua Tree tour (U2JT...) and said it had been used already (which makes sense because I used it for the JT30 tour). If memory serves the code used for the E&I U2.com presales for North America via Verified Fan used a code sent by text message not the U2EI version tied to me now. It is a bit confusing as to why my account should have a code but not say your code has been used if I already purchased tickets.
  3. Each type of sale in this cycle needed a separate verification? Experience/Innocence groups, Citi Presale, and general? Once I was verified for the Experience and Citi presales I thought that meant I was verified for the general on sale as well. I'm curious to know whether I missed a step or simply wasn't chosen for the general on sale.

    Ticketmaster.com forbidden

    Your IP address (the one for your internet connection not the one for your computer) may be flagged by Ticketmaster. I get a similar error where I work (403 instead of 401) and we can't access Ticketmaster at all, no matter the device.
  5. U2 most likely will announce more dates in some of the cities already on the tour itinerary if past tours are any indicator. New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles especially should have more shows added. It is much harder to say that additional cities will be added (again, if past tours are an indicator) and I think the odds are not in our favor for that happening.

    Smoothest presale ever

    Same here - everything went quite smoothly. Purchased 2 GA's for Nashville using on the "Best Available" option. Only wrinkle, if you want to call it that, is that even though I was purchasing on my phone, the link on U2.com sent me to the desktop version of the Ticketmaster site instead of the mobile one. That said, it is pretty crazy that some long time subscribers did not get a code this time out. Makes no sense.

    Are GAs "credit card entry"?

    I purchased GA for Nashville and was given the option of electronic or paper (for an extra fee).
  8. @britbandfan1964 From the look of the map it looks like 113 may be OK re: obstructions, especially if you are seated towards the right side of the section. @mchoosier A friend of mine has seats in that section too so thanks for the heads up about the Chicago situation.

    Long Island Show (edited)

    Good move, LeslieC, switching over to your phone. Buying via mobile phone worked way better for the JT30 tour earlier this year. I tried on my PC at first but it was a mess. I did get the tickets I wanted when all was said and done but lesson learned.

    GA line system

    Seconded!
  11. The bag needs to be clear and there are restrictions as far as size go. http://hardrockstadium.com/stadium-policies/

    GA Line Hard Rock Stadium

    @larryslemongirl Sorry for the delay in responding. There is a Facebook group called U2 Joshua Tree 2017 Miami where I saw that info.

    GA Line Hard Rock Stadium

    I'm getting there late but I saw on Facebook that a line has been forming. It is by the Gate 6 parking gate on the west side of the stadium. Check in is at 8 pm tonight and 8 am tomorrow. I will not be going there today or tomorrow morning. Please note that everyone in your group needs to go together even to get the number. Good luck!

    GA Line Hard Rock Stadium

    @Victor Noe It has been raining a lot the last few days and the bad weather is supposed to continue through next week including Sunday. I wouldn't recommend anyone stay out all night as some of the storms have been quite severe with lightning and hail. Better to show up the morning of the show. I'm hoping someone chimes in with more details about the GA line so that we are all clear.

    getting back to south Beach after gig

    +1 this advice. Uber/Lyft will probably implement surge pricing after the show so pre-booking a ride may prove less expensive.
