So not many really, and it goes without saying they should ALL go to LOYAL fan club members who have been with the site before the Aust tour was announced and not just joined as Johhny-Come-Lateleys.

I really can't believe the ingratitude some people have about the pre-sale system, how much better is it than the old days when you would have to spend a cold night out on the pavement to line up, and even then you weren't guaranteed a good seat. I remember Lovetown in 1989, I joined the ticket queue 12 hours before the box office opened and still only got seats about 100 rows back. Now you just do it from the comfort of work and home and the whole thing takes 5-10 minutes max.

For those with GA tickets, there is the opportunity to have even a better spot than in the Red Zone by getting to the stadium nice and early and you are paying $250 less for the privilage.

I don't think anyone is suggesting that loyal fans should not have first choice. Just as long as Not-Come-At-Alls don't get offered better tix than the Johhny-Come-Lateleys. If that were the case, the whinging would be perfectly justified don't you think?

 

 

Agreed, but I am 99% sure there are no RZ tickets left, they all went in the initial allocation. I would bet London to a brick they will not be available for the general public allocation.Okay, but permission to get vexed if that turns out not to be the case.

Did you have to pay $50 a year for the camping-on-concrete privilege?

Ingratitude? Most people would be perfectly grateful if the system worked. 

I would bet there will be RedZone tickets on sale on Friday to the public. 

Users who pay their money have every right to demand that the pre-sale code system is clear and effective. If tickets sell out, well so be it. But if you can't nab a ticket because your pre-sale code doesn't work, that is a disgrace. 

"It's better than how it used to be" isn't a fair defence. Technology has advanced, communication is easier via so many channels that never existed (email/twitter/bookface/forums/websites), yet the messages are still inconsistent, wrong, and riddled with basic technical problems, ie codes showing up as used when they are not. 

So... gratitude doesn't seem to be too warranted by the entire community. I got the tickets I'm after so this is not sour grapes. I just think there's nothing wrong at all with demand a quality of service for an expensive membership. 

 

The system worked fine if you read the information on this site and followed instructions exactly and didn't panic.

The membership isn't that expensive if you factor in the CD you get, which you could probably sell on eBay for at least $30.

I would bet with confidence there will be NO RedZone tickets on sale on Friday to the public.

I don't think the people who didn't get theirs panicked(and there was no info in the email sent to subscribers or on this page http://www.u2.com/tour/presale or http://community.u2.com/topic/18451. Shouldn't need to read convuluted rules to buy the tix-like others who bought footy final tix today you should be able to enter code, view available tix and then try again if the tickets are shit without being frozen out. There were problems over the weekend in the first presale and now seems worse today). I had trouble as couldn't get RZ and they sold out when I was on the phone to TM-we aren't stupid as I told TM guy, its their system. And sell the CD on ebay-simple supply and demand will tell you there will be a few people trying to do that so don't think $30 will be what you will make(if it ever arrives). And $50 isn't cheap for all those who did not get tickets. Appreciate it is your opinion but don't think your comments are helpful to those angry people out there.

Guys, are GA tickets being posted out? The FAQs say they should be but I would just like a confirmation from those who already bought tickets.
You have to pick up the GA tickets. For ticketek purchases at least. Not sure on ticketmaster. You can do so at the venue or city box office after  September 3rd....  check the site for locations and  opening hrs...

I got GA tickets for Auckland and they are being couriered to me. When purchasing tickets there was a choice of delivery options. I chose courier rather than post because it was only a few dollars more and I didn't want to take any chance that the tickets could go missing! Combined cost for courier and Ticketek service fee was NZD23 on top of ticket price. Hope that helps.

Thanks, but I'll be going to the Perth show so the tickets are handled by TicketMaster. I'm a bit worried as I will be using someone's credit card (with permission, of course) and if TicketMaster asks me to pick up the tickets instead, I wouldn't be able to present the card I used to purchase them. ohwell.gif

Hi

 

I tried getting tickets to the Auckland show through Ticketek. I successfully got into the section of the website where you can select tickets using my Cedar Presale code starting with 3U2. However I was not able to select the tickets i wanted, instead Ticketek selected the most expensive tickets for me. I didn't complete the transaction, and tried again by going back. However when I put in the code it doesn't work. Ticketek says the code is invalid. Please Help.

 

cheers

Yes! short asian girl here only 5 feet
:(
be niceee!
:D
Shoud your user name be Lowcarmen then ? I think my son who turned 11 today is 2 inches taller than you.

 

laugh.gif

Well I am 4 feet 11 and a half inches - always thought they should measure and weigh people for concerts(measure-then up the front for me) and air flights(weigh-then I can take extra baggage)

 

Agree about the air flights thing especially when compared to some not so small person who should be paying for two seats.

 

 

lol! "not so small" i suppose that was polite roll.gif  

there should be a system to accomodate the little ones to be on a standing platform i.e under 5'5 should be in the first 2 row with platform
