  1. More than a month now since my 'case' was sent through to Live Nation for review (thank you, bigwave, for all your efforts!) and still no response. Now U2.com is sending me notification to renew my subscription... You've got to be kidding me! As a long-time subscriber to U2.com and a former member of Propaganda (U2's original fan club and print fanzine) this recent ticket fiasco has left me saying, fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I won't be fooled again!

  3. This is VERY good news, Big D. I have seen others report that TM stuck to their policy in their case. Did TM give you any idea why they might restore your tickets but not restore others?
  4. Good luck, Lori! My wife, daughters, and I are having the same conversation in my house concerning the same show. BigWave (one of the Mods) has sent our case to TM, but that was almost a week ago and I've still not heard anything back from them! I've made the exact same case as you made here (https://darryljmurphy.wordpress.com/2014/12/08/even-fans-who-got-tickets-got-screwed-2/)...Hope springs eternal...!
  5. Hi bigwave, I see you reaching out to distraught members and I appreciate that. That said, and with all due respect, I'm wondering what it takes to get some attention here!? My wife (AnnetteMurphy1975) made what was perhaps too timid a plea for help and it seems to have been overlooked. Ours is the same story as soooo many others on this forum: long time devoted fans with naive expectations that, having followed all the stated rules, we might share the U2 experience with our families. So, as a member of the eXPERIENCE group I bought 2 tickets for the the July 7 show in Toronto on Thursday. As a member of the sUCKERS wHO gOT dUPED group we bought two more tickets for the same show on Friday. Monday, December 8th at 11:52 AM, 74 hours (more than three days) after the second purchase and looong after anything could be done about it, TM informs us that they've cancelled our second order. I've been suppressing a brain aneurysm ever since! Not only are these rules inconsistent with the U2.com presale rules, they were, for all intents and purposes, imposed retroactively! At the very least, if TM notified consumers at the time (or shortly after) the second purchase, we could have cued up with the rest of public for a shot at tickets. That's not what happened! My guess: TM didn't want any more strain on their pathetically under supported systems... So I called TM, of course, and they want to read the fine print to me. I wasn't having that until I decided it was time for an object lesson. With only 3 minutes to push through their system before timing out (and considering 2 1/2 of those minutes are taken up by the delay in their response time) there's no way you can read through all that garbage that any reasonable person would assume they've already read over on the U2.com site! And guess what, the lady on the other end couldn't manage to read through it in 3 minutes either!!!! You know, I've already put way too much energy into this fiasco and God knows I've put too much money into it (at least $50 recently and tens of thousands over the three decades I've been a U2 fan)! I do hope this message manages sees some sort of address, but my optimism is failing...
