This whole thing has been a complete scam and a disappointment. I unfortunately have not had the time to sit and phone USA all day and night, and have not had any luck with getting a new presales code.

 

I agree with you_two. Why is no map given showing the seat locations before one has to choose a category and tickets? Surely the people involved in this whole thing have done this before; I mean it is one of the biggest bloody bands in the world for $#@%sake. Why do they hire imbeciles to arrange their ticket sales?

 

Justin Bieber's crew could probably do a better job, and they are %#&*ing 10 years old.

 

If something had indeed been done to apologise and try and rectify the problem, more than just having poor old Baja dealing with ranting fans on a forum, then perhaps it would calm things down, but Ticketek does not have a clue, everyone is blaming someone else, and someone is sitting with our $50 having a quiet chuckle.

 

It is because of this lack of any proper assistance that I too do want my money back.

 

Please advise how a refund can get processed, and then I will give you a special secret access code so you can pay the money into my account, and if that code does not work within the allotted 20 seconds, please spend 10 hours trying to call me on the 15 different "busy" international phone numbers I give you while I actually just switch my phone off and chill out on the beach.

Brilliant post Cuan!

 

Also baja - for additional Sydney shows, will current codes be valid for those presales? THERE ARE USUALLY NO PRESALES FOR SECOND SHOWS, BUT I HAVE ASKED.

 

 Will the system change by then to allow you to decline any amount of time rather than just once? DO NOT KNOW, BUT I ASKED FOR IT

 

Will the same thing happen again for those shows? I assume on Friday 9am Sydney time people will actually be able to choose by section rather than just price on the internet? DONT KNOW& MAYBE

 

 I'm not angry at you baja and thank you for your help, but I am stunned that you are the only person actually trying to help, with all the $50 subscriptions, say 2000 people for example x $50 = $100,000 but I'm sure its much more than that...I would have thought they could afford more help at u2.com?  NO COMMENT

 

It would make things alot easier and less stressful for you. AGREE

 

Also not sure if anyone knows but I saw on a forum someone say U2 may resume on Jan 1 with more shows here, does that sound likely or not? Would be great to see u2 on New Years Day! NO CLUE

While trawling through the ANZ Stadium site trying to figure out my seat problem I found this information, which may still be of use to some people:

thanks baja for your help, time and info - for those that want refunds we will await what to do

 

if refunds are an option, it would be good to know how long people will be given to actually take up the offer of a refund, and how they go about getting the refund

 

as it is possible, as you have asked, that these current unused codes may be able to be used for possible additional shows presales, when many more good seats will be available than now, then people may want to wait and decide wether they want a refund or try their luck for additional shows presales if that actually is possible when its announced

 

so the option of either a refund or a chance to use code(multiple attempts, but max only a purchase of 4 tickets total) for other presales would be fair

Micaelita thanks for your post, but its still not an exact description of each bay and each bays price category for Sydney

 

Also your info refers to level 6 alot...where is that?

 

When you say level 1 and 2, do you mean for example 141-1 is level 1 and 141-2 is level 2? If so why would 141-1 be only $39 if it is a better view than 141-2 where the higher up you are at the back of stage the more of the top of the video screen gets blocked?

 

the day before presale a ticketek person told me they "thought but didn't know for sure" that the $109 seated tickets were all behind in the lower bays, and that $39 was for the seats behind the stage in the upper bays, but someone on another forum said they got behind the stage in the lower bays for $39...another person said they were offered a $109 ticket in section 609 which is way back and high up on the east side, when they thought they could only be offered a ticket behind the stage in the lower bays for that price category, not realising that category was also for the nose bleed seats high up to the back of the stage on the west and east side...so its really misleading...if you can only use code once but one price category covers 2 totally different parts of the ground, ie for $109 its for behind stage AND for nosebleed seats in far back corners then that is a big difference with no guarentee you will be offered behind stage if you want there instead of nosebleed far back corners miles away.

 

no proper price category map + the ultimatum of take first tickets offered or you miss out(even though presale period is 3 days long) + not being able to choose by section rather than price + paying $50 for the priviledge = unfair and not right

With the sections numbered 141-1 and 141-2 are the same section and would be same price category. The 1 and 2 after the large number just means you are in the front seats or rear seats of that section. So you may have for eg: rows A to P are section 141-1 and then Q-T is 141-2..  You will find this on most sections through out the stadium.. At all price levels.

Usually front on stage tickets are more expensive even if they are in the upper sections such as 609.

So are you saying 141-1 and 141-2 are both $39...then where are the $109 tickets higher up behind the stage?

 

Shouldn't the highest seats behind stage be $39 and not $109 as alot of the top of the screen will be blocked?...with the lower levels behind being $109 where you can see all the screen?

 

This is the problem, to make it this confusing - there is nothing anywhere which will give a clear indication of what you can expect exactly for every price category for every bay...also for example the non alcohol seats with 3 different price categories for those

It can vary as they can split sections in half  and threes when it comes to pricing..  especially when the seats are further away or behind the stage... this is the issue and risk you take with buying blind.. Fanclub presales often have this issue. As they are done soon after announcement and before the facilities have done the final seat plan.  Bon jovi was the same we bought blind as most states hadnt put their seat plan up... very frustrating!! I understand. Especially if youve never been to the venue..
