  1. I only have a confirmation number (or whatever they called it). One number, for the purchase of two tickets to Japan 2. It's 13 digits long, starting with 242. I have friends who purchase tickets around the same time, with numbers starting with 243 & 246. Ending in all sorts of numbers, from the hundreds to 6 & 7 thousand. So there appears to be no order. I'd say we won't know our ticket numbers until we pick up our tickets at 7-eleven.
  2. Ticket drop or price reduction for Auckland 2 a couple of days ago. There are now $60NZD seats available, towards the back of the Upper South stand.
  3. I guess there's a lot of hopeful people. I agree it's wishful thinking, & very unlikely the will be another show, but you never know. The seats (which were very low capacity compared to other venues) sold out quickly. The GA's which is pretty large, like most venues has been a slow burn, even the front GA wasn't particularly quick. Yeah, given the Chinese government's stance an human rights, there's a good chance U2 wouldn't want to play there. In any casez it's almost a certainty that they wouldn't be allowed to perform in China. As they performed at the Tibetan Freedom festival.
  4. Nah, not odd I wouldn't think. Melbourne sold out quickly (though they've reconfigured it, & added a few more seats & GA), but won't get another show by the looks of it. Auckland 1 sold out extremely quickly, but Auckland 2 sales appear to be very disappointing. These are both far bigger venues though.
  5. It's very slow, so I don't like your chances. Especially as Live Nation are now saying Melbourne won't get a second show, & it sold out very quickly (though it's a much larger venue than Seoul). I'd say the only chance to sell a second show in Seoul would be if they put seats on the floor. The seats in the stands sold out quickly, but the GA standing tickets have been slow to sell.
  6. Ticket drop for Brisbane. GA's, go get them! Thanks to kings for the notification.
  7. Cheers kings, I'll put this in the ticket drop thread too.
  8. Back in the old days (ZooTV) I remember we had no chance to select seats in the mad rush of ticket sales. The first people got seats closer to the stage, those later, further away. My guess would be that, like GA, the seats will be ranked by ticket number. Those who purchased their tickets first (Red Hill Presale group) will have the lowest ticket numbers, & will get the best seats. Cool pic razspazz. You can only just make out the area dividing the different GA areas. Here's another one. I hope the area separating the GA sections is a little further back this time.
  9. Ticket drop for Adelaide. RZ, Cat 4 & 5. Only Cat 4 left now I think.
  10. Yep. From what I've read this seems pretty common in Asia. I'm expecting the same in Japan. So I chose to sign up to u2.com before the tour was announced. As a ticket from the Red Hill presale should have a low ticket number. Hopefully meaning an early entry into GA, with very little waiting.
  11. Not exactly a ticket drop, but for anyone looking for Tokyo tickets, the second round of vendor presales has begun. Unlike the first round, this presale is open to EVERYONE, not just Japanese residents. Likemany Japanese sales, this presale is a lottery. The lottery is open until July 13 (23:59), with results announced on July 17 (estimated 13:00). To enter the lottery visit https://www.u2japan2019.com/ The English presale is linked towards the bottom of the page. I've outlined the whole process in the #U2Japan2019 thread here,
  12. Sorry ballardmama, this post slipped my mind & I forgot to answer. I didn't really know who would be able to participate in the vendor presale anyway. But we have answers now, as the vendor presale is up & running! The TICKET VENDOR PRESALE-2 is open to everyone. No need to enter a Japanese phone number, no need to enter an address. The process is quite simple. NOTE: this is a LOTTERY. Entries are open until July 13 (23:59). You are not guaranteed tickets. So DON'T make any travel plans until you have confirmation that you were successful in the lottery (on July 17). Visit https://www.u2japan2019.com/ For the English presale hit the 'Apply' button for the TICKET PIA * ENGLISH PAGE, towards the bottom of the page. Choose either Red Zone or seats & GA, & 'Proceed'. You'll be bombarded with information on the next page, once you've read it, choose 'Next'. Another page with lots of (fee) information. One you've read it, check the term & conditions box, so the 'Agree' button appears. The registration page, a couple of things here. For the phone number, each field can only contain 4 digits. So the first field will probably need to include you country code & your area code. But it MUST only be numerals, NO plus sign, NO spaces. So join the country code & the area code together. Eg. Sun Valley (208), USA (1) becomes 1208. The password must be alphanumeric characters, NOT special characters like $ or @. Choose 'Desired Performance(s)', & select the appropriate date. Click the 'Type of Seat Select' button. As I said, this is a lottery. You can choose up to 5 options. Each option can be a different ticket type, on a different date. These options are prioritised. So start with the ticket type you want the most, & the date you'd prefer as Priority 1. Select the ticket type & click the 'the amount of tickets' button. Select the quantity & click 'Confirmation' button. If you would like to try for a different date or a different ticket type in the lottery click 'Adding desired' button, & repeat the process. Note, you will only be charged for the highest priority tickets that were successful in the lottery. So if you're happy to go for either date, try them both. The same goes for ticket type, GA front, GA rear, expensive seats, cheap seats. Try whatever you'll be happy to receive. You can have between 1 & 5 priorities. Once you've completed your priorities, click "Settlement Method" button. Enter your credit card details & click the 'Ticket Issuance of Tickets' button. Note: collection of tickets are at 7-eleven stores. This is common for Japanese concerts. Best of luck!
  13. Another Melbourne drop, including cheap $60 seats.
  14. I'm always pretty tight with my money, would'nt dream of paying this sort of money, & don't think the VIP party packages offer good value. They're always very expensive, & are extremely expensive at Singapore (Singapore VIP Party is $950 USD vs $580 USD for Sydney). However, for anyone who is happy to spend this type of money, the seats at the Singapore VIP party are in an extremely good location. Located in a front-on section, quite close to the stage. Front-on seats this close are available at this venue because of the unusual stage orientation, & don't occur at any other show. Front-on seats are further away at all other venues. In comparison, the Sydney VIP Party Experience seats are quite far from the stage (located between the CAT 2 sections). However this is where the party occurs, inside the stadium, in the Steve Waugh function room. No idea where the actual Singapore VIP party occurs. The only time I popped into a VIP party was for Vegas 360. The party was located outside the stadium for that show.
  15. There was a drop of CAT 3 ($190) seats for Sydney 2 yesterday. Previously CAT 3 was down to only singles tickets. But now you can get up to 8 x CAT 3 tickets. It looks like it might be a small drop though, at the rear of the Victor Trumper stand (Bay 312-1, rows Y & Z are what's appearing so far. It may continue to the back row, row CC).
