Has anyone been in the Red Zone before? I have 2 tickets for Red Zone for Melb 1 - had a look at photos from the 360 concerts I went to in Europe last year and now realise we won't be immediately next to the stage but rather next to the circular walkway. Reckon those with GA who que up super early and make it to the front will have a much closer view of the band.

I did a little research on this and it seems (based on previous shows anyway) that if you are Redzone you also have the option of going into the 'Pit' (inner circle) if you want to. Most people are saying that the view is really good from the Redzone area as you are the same height as the catwalk, whereas in the inner circle you are quite a bit lower than the stage and have to look up. Apparently the band make regular trips around the catwalk to the Rezone areas, so you will definitely get to see them up close. In saying that, in the inner circle you are closer to the band and I'd guess would get that really intimate experience. I have Redzone tics for both nights so thought I might try the pit one night and stay in Redzone the next...!

Cheers Coleena. Didn't know about the pit option. I'm hoping to have a great night!

I totally agree with you about the support acts. Jay Z holds no interest for me and I won't even bother with him, where as I'd have liked to see some of those other support acts.

 

I watched that Snow Patrol farewell clip from Instanbul not long ago too and yeah, shame we can't have them or some of the other great bands supporting U2 when they come down under.

 

Seems we get stuck with the duds when they tour here. Appologies to fans of Jay Z.

A Split Enz reunion as support act would have been good.

For anyone who selected 'post' as a delivery method, can you post when you get your tickets. I got my tickets over a week ago and considering you pay $18 as a transaction fee, I hope ticketek get thier act together and send out the tickets quickly.
The single ticket I purchased for my brother using my wife's Ticketek account and Credit Card arrived yesterday, 13th Sep so 10 days from the date of public sale. She commented that she was surprised it was in just a plain white envelope and not what she would have expected for the $19.30 fee.

 

Still waiting on the 4 tickets purchased using my account and CC.

I purchased mine to the first Brisbane Concert during the first presale on Aug 26 through Ticketek.  There was only 2 options....Box Office pickup or regular mail, which surprised me as in the past there has been a registered mail option which is much more secure.  Ticketek still mentions it when you click on links attached to the confirmation email, however it just wasn't there as an option for these concerts.  With difficulty getting to the Box Office to collect I chose the $18 regular mail option.

I also noted it said that presale tickets would not be sent out until the public sale started on Sept 3, which was 11 days ago yesterday (Sept 14).  I was getting a bit concerned so sent them an email last night.  I got a reply today stating the tickets had been mailed out during the day yesterday (Sept 14),  and if they have not turned up by Sept 30 then to contact them again.  I have since read that it can take up to 10 WORKING DAYS for them to arrive.....so from Sept 3 that would be this Friday Sept 17.....so I was probably worrying unnecessarily.  I was just counting 10 normal days which was wrong.

Nniixx, I'm not surprised they arrived in just plain white envelope being only regular mail.  Registered mail is usually different, and at least you have to go and sign for them.  The plainer the envelope the better I think for just regular mail.  I'd actually prefer it wasn't too obvious what was in them.....less attractive for stealing fingers that way!  Good luck all....I'm sure all our tickets will arrive soon.  I for one will be very happy once they appear in my mailbox. Fingers crossed for tomorrow's mail.

Cheers, Karen
