I'm a huge fan and i've seen U2 every European tour since 1987 but unless they get the ticket situation sorted i won't be back.
As an 'innocence' subscriber I was given a chance of presale tickets this morning so i took a day off work and guess what? - absolutely no chance of standing tickets anywhere in Europe - UNLESS I GO ONTO VIAGOGO OR SIMILAR WEBSITES - AT DOUBLE THE PRICE OF COURSE.
After last year's fiasco i thought this was meant to have been fixed. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE BAND THAT CARES ABOUT THEIR FANS...
Ticketmaster Spain had the right idea last year when anyone buying tickets had to supply their name, this went on the tickets and if the name on the ticket did not match one of the concert-goers the tickets were then deemed invalid. this prevented third-party sites selling them on at over-inflated prices.
NOT GOOD ENOUGH U2!!!!
