    Have to Count - the new and improved one :P

    41862 - wtf? Why are we counting? I've seen this thread here for a while now so I'm just jumping on the bandwagon, but I don't know why :-)
  2. There are fans still waiting for pre-orders of the new album. Can't anyone help get us an advance download of our music? This should have been handled by now.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Sometimes itunes will put a song under collaborations if the artist name contains a featured artist. I've recently seen this with Taylor Swift's new album (and I've seen it in the past). Try searching for the song name if you haven't tried that.

    Thank you for this. I was dumb enough to pre-order the album and now can't enjoy it for a week. I'm tempted to check out the leak but feel it would ruin the "experience" for me.
  5. I'm pissed. I can't listen to the album now for a week unless I buy it again? I already own three copies that I can't get yet... WTF?

    "Limited View"

    I think it may be due to the walkway screen that drops down during the show, which is best viewed from the sides only. It may also block some of the view at the front end sections. The stage setup looks like the same as the Innocence Tour but I don't know if that is for sure. I'm curious too, can anyone who sat in the front lower sections where seats have "limited view" share how the view was for you? I bought limited view seats yesterday.
  7. While I can't justify paying for a membership every year, I can say I have spent thousands of dollars on U2 tickets, merchandise, music, etc. through the years. I am a die hard fan, but I have always felt that I should not have to pay for a fan club membership every year to show my appreciation for their music, nor to reap the rewards of being a real fan. Some of us have a hard enough time just paying the bills. That being said, those who do join every year should get some perks. I just don't know if it's justifiable to say poor people who can't pay for an ongoing membership should not have the same chance for great seats at a low price. The whole fan club system to me is just not the best way to reward your real fans.
  8. Until they figure out how to strip it down and give true fans access to a great experience without such hassle and expense, I feel the same way about whoever is in control of ticket buying process. I appreciate the mods / middle-men who only try to help.

    Whats the point!

    So true! Fans should have access to low price seats up close, other than these ridiculous VIP packages. General Admission isn't for everyone, and not easy to get anyway, but $325.00 - $ 651.00 for an ok seat for real fans, is just too much. What about your poor fans U2? I'm so sick of this system. The only way I could get seats remotely close for sort of cheap were to choose behind the stage or with "limited view." I would rather go to a U2 show with no special effects or gimmicks for cheap than to pay those prices all the time. I wonder if the band ever consider this.
  10. So which pre-sale seats are available to us is also limited to seats which do not cause one seat to be left un-purchsed by itself! What a joke. I understand the point, but why make those available to view then? Basically, anywhere you see a group of three, you can't buy there because the purchase limit is two and one seat would be left open. This is on the map view in Ticketmaster. There are many, many areas I see still that have a group of three left.

    I got one of these also... What does it mean?

    pa system never loud enough

    I've never had my ears ringing more after a U2 show than last years at San Jose arena. I think our seats were in the wrong spot. I hope that wasn't the case for most of the tour. I usually like it loud, but it was very harsh at that show, and most I talked to agreed.

    Presale SEATS not resellable?

    The thing is that we really want to get great seats, so much so that the anxiety clouds the facts and our judgment at times. But really, I will jump through hoops if necessary to obtain great seats to U2 concerts. It's just a shame that the fans are the ones made to do so. I am fortunate that I was able to afford and acquire Red Zone tickets this time around, but not until I had already anxiously bought others that were ok, in fear of not being able to get any, or having to buy them for way over face value. I'll find a use for my extra tickets, but it would be nice if I had a "legitimate" re-sale option (if you want to call Ticketmaster that), other than friends and family.
  15. There seem to be a lot of tickets available for the second show in Pasadena. If anyone hasn't used all their pre-sale 4 ticket purchases up. FYI. Including general admission.
