Personally I think if you weren't a subscriber by the time of the official announcement, you shouldnt be able to get a pre sale code..........that's my opinion of course :)

 

 

 

I agree. I've had it happen in other fanclubs. At least here you have priority system.

When I joined up back in June when rumours of an Oz tour first started I did not receive a pre-sales code.

 

When I enquired via email I was told they would not be created until a concert in Sydney was announced and due to Bono's back injury that would not happen until 2011 after their rescheduled tours.

 

Well now they've announced it for December 2010 and tickets go on sale via ticketek in less than 12 days so should I start hounding support now or just wait patiently ?

 

I'm especially concerned that someone earlier in this thread claims to have signed up and received their pre-sales code already yet 2 months down the track I'm still waiting ?

 

Furthermore the Pre-Sales help page says that I should be able to see my pre-sales code on the Tours page, but I can't. In fact the Australian concerts don't even appear yet.

 

This means a lot to me as I took my then 7 1/2 year old 4 years ago but had to refuse my 2 1/2 year old as he was just too young. Now he's almost 7 and is raring to go. I had to camp out overnight last time and only just managed to get tickets and was 9th in the queue but at 43 I'm getting too old for that.

OMFG I just saw a post a few above mine that said somehting about checking for a valid email address in ACCOUNT INFO.

 

When I joined in June I couldn't get the account info page to work either at work or home in IE or Firefox or any other browser.

 

I just went there now and not only did I have my correct email address but on the left hand side was my GROUP and my PRE-SALESCODE.

 

I'm so excited I have tears in my eyes - I'm not a religious person - but someone is watching over me today.

Great news U2 360 tour down under :) awesome..... pitty about being mid week whats the go with that!!!!! not easy for those fans who live 3+ hours away from a venue closest to them... getting time off work if possible.... I have to have a reconsider if I can make it this time.... I went to Dublin for shows 1+2 but looks like I wont be able to make it to Melbourne and thats 3.5 hours away from home. If the shows where on a weekends I would be able to go to all shows and take my who family along to each show also but week day shows means its impossible to... leave my family home while Im off swanning about at a U2 gig I dont think that is fair on my family so its going to be a tough call if I make it or not. For those who havent seen any of the 360 tour and can make it you wont regret it, the show is the best an awesome experience I loved the 2 gigs I went to in Dublin (oh btw I was single in Dublin, not the case any longer :)....) go people and enjoy......... also my new partner wants me to go.... But I dont think its right to do so when she cant come along with me

Maybe weekend dates are already booked out ?

 

December is not that far away.

 

As I mendtioned before my 6 7/12 year old had been hanging for this for the last 4 years when, back then, he was devastingly told he was not going to the UUUUUU2222 CONCEEEEERRRRRRT as he put it.

 

We were just watching some video footage of him singing that the other night he said "You should have let me go" when I told him yesterday (Sunday) that they were coming out his eyes lit up like you would not believe.

 

I know the Sydney concert is a Monday night but this will be the first one all of the family will get to go to so we won't miss it for the world.

 

P.S RedCloud - yes you should subscribe now. Last time I missed out on tickets for the first concert and when I camped out overnight for the second I was 9th in the queue and people about 5 or so behind me missed out.

Thanks Nnixx. I'll subscribe I think. I can't miss them this time, who knows, they're getting old, this may be my last chance.

 

Nobody I know wants to go with me though :( I'll have to try some persuading or just go on my own.
