Who knows.

 

Even the Livenation pre-sale seemed 1000 times easier than the U2.COM fan sale.

 

When the public sale started I was back and forth adding and removing tickets of different categories to see what would come up.

 

I couldnlt believe how easy it was to get in and find tickets in the public sale as back in 2006 I couldn't even get in to the website and then camped out for the second show

Agreed on the public sales - I purchased some tickets for a friend on the public sale thinking it would be way hard. but does make you wonder.  I'm glad for the presales, because it reduced the stress sort of.  But for some people its been a nightmare.  I have a mate who gets a preferential ticket purchase because they live 5mins from suncorp - turn up at 3pm day before public sales (first show) with about 20 others - thats perfect!

 

Still it all be worth it when we get to the shows!

Sure will be.

 

Foxtel had the 360 concert and every U2 video ever released on the weekend recorded both and it was about 6 hours of U2 on Father's day.

 

My boys (11 and 6) are looking forward to it.

 

Will have to pull out the Zoo TV, Popmart, Elevation and Vertigo DVDs over the coming months.

 

Only 97 days to go until Sydney concert 1
