Nniixx']"The prices are all in line with the Vertigo Tour" - bollocks they are I paid $99 for reserved seats at ANZ Stadium. Even the A-Reserver seats were only $129 but they'd sold out.

 

Pop Mart on the other had was a big rip off I paid $275 and got god awful seats in the heavens at the side of the SFS.

 

Also these are the same seats that I paid $60 bucks for to watch State of Origin or about $25-$40 bucks to watch the footy.

 

It's not like they're suddenly moved closer to the stage or something.

 

And with a 6/12 year old GAand queing all day is really not an option.

 

Lucky I get paid well although I still don't think I can justify $299 a pop.

Bollocks? Oh Really??

 

The cheapest tickets at Vertigo were more expensive than the cheapest tickets this time.  The B and C reserve style tickets are almost the same price and GA tickets are the exact same price that they were 5 years ago.

So they've jacked up the price of the A reserve section to subsidize the cheap seats. (and they were $199 in 2006 not $129)  Seems pretty fair to me.

 

At the end of the day, the people who find themselves front row will have only paid $100 for a ticket.

 

You didn't pay $275 for a ticket to Sydney Popmart (unless you got ripped off, or are stupid).  There were 2 catagories for that gig - $100 and $120.  They released $40 limited view tickets  on the day of the show.

 

Tickets to Zoo TV Sydney were $70 for every seat, and that was 1993.

 

 

And comparing the State Of Origin to the U2 tour is like comparing VB to Veuve Clicquot.

 

 

I saw both shows in New Jersey last year from behind the stage, and had an amazing time at both.

 

 

Anyways, it times like this that highlight the different types of fans there are.

 

There's those that will think "Wow, U2s actually bringing that insane production all the way to Oz, and I get to go and see them. How feckin sweet!!!!!"

 

And there's those who will bitch and moan about tickets in catagories that they won't be buying anyway, and crapping on for the next 4 months about how Powderfinger should be supporting and Jay Z is rap crap........

 

That's fine. Each to their own.

 

But if you want to hang out with Mick in his home town folks, you'll find me with the "how feckin sweet" gang that are just out for a wicked night.

 

And chances are you'll find me happily flipping off the bitchers and moaners.

Well all i can say is I'm glad your obviously such a confident b@$t@rd because you're an arrogant prat whose full of  himself.

 

I bought tickets to Popmart through visa preferred because at the time I had a gold visa (boast boast) and they offered me A-Reserve tickets, I remember initially they offere me some for about $225 and then suddenly they had an option to upgarde to $275 tickets which I jumped at. Possibly Visa Preferred were whacking a big fee on top. Maybe my memory of 17 years ago is fading but I guess it's your word against mine unless one of us proves the other wrong.

 

As for your bragging about seeing both New Jersey shows and being able to get to the front of the crowd - woop de doo, what a big man, I'm so jealous. I've been there at the first two shows in 1989 front row both shows. I queued all weekend second in the queue for those tickets and queued overnight for the last tour.

 

Where I'm coming from is that i have 2 boys 11 and 6 1/2 and a pregnant wife so my priorities are a bit more about seats than hanging with Mick the tosser and his bunch of deadbeat mates in GA (possibly because your too scabby to actually pay for a decent seat or the redzone), but also the prices for stadium seats are not in line with the Vertigo tour as they are in the majority 50% more and dropping $1200 is a lot more than you and your mates only having to drop $99.90 plus whatever it costs you in beer.

 

All good mate.

No wukkas, I'm a deadbeat tosser.

 

But what I'm not, is a person who is complaining about irrelevant bullshit, and expecting some sort of prize for taking kids.

 

Anyways, I'll still be the guy whose having a ball with whatever seats I have, and who is enjoying the company of other cool Zootopians.

 

You'll be the grumpy fucker whose complaining about the hot dogs being six bucks and how they haven't played Pride yet.

Geez, you dont even have ANY info and you all are already complaining

tsk tsk

 

The sales are staggered, with windows of 2-4 hrs per level with a total of 5 levels. If you miss your window, you can buy at ANYTIME during the presale, but you cannot buy before your level starts.

Hope this helps

 

It does help, thank you.

Sorry to throw a spanner in the works but it looks like there ISN'T a staggered sale this time around. From the updated official FAQ:

All subscribers with a valid subscription and presale code before
[/font]
 Sun. 22 Aug. 7AM NZ / 5AM AU
[/font]
 
[/font]
have access on Day 1 of the presale,
[/font]
Thursday August 26th. All those with subscriptions taken out from after this time ('Cedars' Subscribers) will have access to the presale from 1pm on Monday 30th August

 

 

Yes but the next question has the following note:

 

"Please note: 'Horizon', 'Breathe', 'Boots' and 'Magnificent' subscribers retain their place in different presale priority groups for any future relevant presales. We do not change your subscription category. No exceptions will be made. The exact times for access will be emailed to you and made available on the tour page of U2.com when you sign in.Please note: 'Horizon', 'Breathe', 'Boots' and 'Magnificent' subscribers retain their place in different presale priority groups for any future relevant presales.

Which seems to imply there will be different times for each group

I took that as future relevant sales after the Aus/NZ one I think long time subscribers are going to be fuming when that email is received because there was also a mention of a different process being used to North America and Europe.

there always be those few pissed dickheads with their shirts off, or that dude who sparks up a huge doob when the show starts.

 

That would be you I gather ?

Again mate,

 

At least I'll have a nice buzz going, while you're complaining to an usher that one of the stage legs is obscuring your veiw.

 

Seriously, cheer the feck up.

Do you need a hug or something?

A the end of the day I will probably but the $300 tickets because I can and I always stay away from the food at ANZ because it tastes like shit and the beer is watered down piss.

 

And no I won't be missing Pride - I've never liked that song despite it's appeal to the mass populous of "cool Zootopians"
