    Thoughts and Prayers with Mexico

    Thank you for sharing @monica martino. Very moving indeed. We continue to think and pray for everyone in Mexico who continue to deal with the effects of the disasters.
  2. Hi U2 friends, My thoughts and prayers for the citizens of Mexico after the terrible catastrophe of two earthquakes in a short time. We wish you in Mexico the best as you mourn lost loved ones and recover from the many obstacles created in recent days. May you overcome and find renewed strength. If you are a Zootopia member from Mexico, or are connected with family and friends there, or are just concerned, please share your thoughts or updates here. Un abrazo a ti en Mexico! (Sorry for any bad translation!)

    Nice! Was just about to post this myself. Enjoy the show! I can't wait.

    GA tips/advice (especially given no inner circle/pit)?

    Thanks @ddarroch. I appreciate it. I did a google search and found a useful doc for the show I'm headed to, Toronto: http://mlb.mlb.com/tor/downloads/y2017/u2_event_information.pdf I'll try and cross-post that on the Toronto event forum thread, if it isn't there already. Cheers!

    GA tips/advice (especially given no inner circle/pit)?

    Can people share what time the GA lines started to enter the stadium? I'm sure it varies from show to show, but any sense of that would be helpful. Sorry if I've missed such info mentioned elsewhere!
  6. Hi folks, I'm hoping to see the boys in Mexico City and could use some advice on landing tickets! I already used my presale code so either need one of my friends who is coming with me to buy a U2.com membership, or try to land tickets on the regular sale. It may be the latter approach, so need some help... The Ticketmaster Mexico site shows two links/listings for the U2 show - one is "Pista" and one is "Seccion Grada": http://www.ticketmaster.com.mx/search?tm_link=tm_header_search&user_input=U2&q=U2 I assume "Pista" is the floor. So I'd need to choose that link to buy floor tickets I assume? Anyone here who speaks Spanish and is familiar with buying Tickets in Mexico? I don't want to buy the wrong tickets! Interesting that the TM Mexico page lists the presale happening on Monday June 12th through Preventa Citibanamex - while the U2.com site has a presale happening this Thursday. Nice that we U2.com members get the first crack at things. All of this to say - If anyone has tips on getting Mexico City tickets please reply!

    Presale questions for new dates Sept / Oct 2017 (merged)

    I agree! Mexico City GA/Pista ticket prices are more than double what I paid for my Toronto GA tickets. That being said, I still gladly bought Mexico City GA tickets. "The price the market will bear" is Ticketmaster's approach, I'm sure. I wonder though if South American GA ticket prices are more comparable to US and Canada GA prices?
  8. I got floors/Pista for Mexico City!!! I am beyond thrilled! A dream for my friends and I to do this trip! This will be just amazing!! Thank you U2 and U2.com mods!! This forum helps so much in making fans happy!!
  9. I need to update my last post - Firefox works for Mexico City presale, but you must get to the presale from this link (as mods have been saying elsewhere - sorry for my earlier post!): http://www.u2.com/presale

    Presale questions for new dates Sept / Oct 2017 (merged)

    Thanks. I just tried from the presale page on Firefox, and it is indeed as you say - less than one hour. Sorry for my previous post folks! Here is that official presale link - open Mexico City presale from here: http://www.u2.com/presale
  11. I just noticed that on Chrome it says the Mexico City presale starts in less than an hour. On Firefox only mentions the presale next week for Citibanamex card holders. So you may want to go to a Chrome browser if trying for Mexico City! Yes, Serenity Now!!

    Time zone Mexico resale

    If you see the below link it says 10 AM Red Hill Group and 12 noon for Wires Group (all in local time, as already stated by Max): http://www.u2.com/presale So be sure to check what time it is now in Mexico City. Here is a handy link for that: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/mexico/mexico-city Just looking out for you! I am a bit buggy myself right now about landing Mexico City Tickets! Good luck!
  15. There is currently no mention of any U2 fan club presale on the Ticketmaster Mexico webpages, only the Citibanamex presale that happens next week: Seated ticket link: http://www.ticketmaster.com.mx/u2-the-joshua-tree-tour-2017-mexico-distrito-federal-03-10-2017/event/140052BFBE7A5F0A?artistid=736365&majorcatid=10001&minorcatid=826 Floors ticket link: http://www.ticketmaster.com.mx/u2-the-joshua-tree-tour-2017-mexico-distrito-federal-03-10-2017/event/140052C17D040C3D?artistid=736365&majorcatid=10001&minorcatid=826 Will everything still go live at 10 AM Mexico City time for us fan club folks? Getting anxious!
  16. Thanks for the advice Max. I recall how hard it was trying to get Dublin tickets back in 2005. We were happy to get stands for that show. I'm sure getting tickets to this will be even harder now compared to back then, with smart phones in everyone's hands! I'll try multiple methods and say a few prayers! Cheers!

    How many of you were at the original Joshua Tree tour?

    Awesome! I was at that show as well! You've reminded me how damn cold it was. I'll never forget the how the show opened - that long instrumental bit, the curtain dropping revealing the Joshua Tree, lights flashing and Edge's guitar kicking in. Chills just thinking about it! Unforgettable! Can't wait to see them in Toronto next month.
  19. Hi there, My brother (a longtime fan like me) lives near the show venue and I believe is looking for tickets. I will check with him, and explain your request/situation, and will get back to you. I have similar questions re my show in Toronto and the line-up process, as I have tickets for a big group but all will definitely not be able to line up with me for the day. Cheers! Henry

    Multiple Access codes at same address/credit card #

    My wife and I had an order cancelled last tour as well. No matter how valiant my efforts were in talking with Ticketmaster (multiple escalated calls to higher ups at TM), and the efforts of the great mods here, we never got our order back. Still stings. Was no way to treat fans of almost 35 years. Anyhow - best wishes to all here in getting your full memberships' worth! I do hope there's been some learning at TM on how to treat good U2 fans.

    I would love them to OPEN with 'Streets' ! (MERGED)

    Love this discussion - if not only for the chance to relive what it was like seeing The Joshua Tree back in the day! I'll never forget seeing them in Toronto's Exhibition Stadium (long since torn down) and that long instrumental build-up to Streets. Thrills and goosebumps still thinking about it! Then Edge's guitar strumming, lights kicking in and the drop of the banner behind the stage. Wow. Amazing! Not sure how they will do it this time, but I'm so glad for the musical journey through all these years and that I'll be there again to experience it now, 30 years later. Stellar times ahead! Cheers folks!

    GA Tickets numbered Section GA4

    It is common for Ticketmaster to have numbers when they list GA on the tickets and the ticket order. My Toronto GAs that I bought this morning, for example, say GA3. Past tours my GA tickets had a different number after the "GA". It doesn't make any difference. You have the same access to the floor area - the sooner you arrive, the better the likelihood you get close to the stage and all of that. Congrats and have a blast at the show!

    Got Tix! Smoothest Presale Ever!

    Got 4 GAs for Toronto without any difficulty. Very happy! TM experience was better than previous years. Hopefully the same for others here too!

    Toronto - Presale crap

    Sorry to hear about the troubles some have had. Buying Toronto GAs was a good experience for me this morning. Cheers folks!
