iT'S OFFICIAL U2 + DOWN UNDER (UPDATED 8/30/2010 6 pm PST)

Recommended Posts


I assume that it is 11AM Sydney time...so 9AM Perth time??
All the pre-sales start at 11am local time, so 11am in Sydney, 11am in Perth, 11am in New Zealand etc.

You have first chance...presale for next group won't start at same time as presale for horizon..how it's always been done.I understand your concern but the way I read it and the fact that the page that shows the TBC for pre-sales only shows 2 groups makes me think there will only be two groups.

 

It clearly states in the FAQ that sale will be done differently to North US and Europe so don't be counting on "how it's always been done".

 

Maybe they can't get Ticketek to do staggered sales ??

I recently subscribeD upon hearing about the upcoming U2 Australian tour.

 

I received my official welcome e-mail at 5:56 P.M on Monday August 23rd, I'm 100% sure that in my'Account info' I was listed as belonging to the 'Magnificent' group.

 

Now upon going back into my account info, my group says I'm N/A?

 

I'm not sure what group subscriber group I'm in.

 

Help?

 

Cheers!

But if you want to buy tickets to the Sydney show and live in Perth then at 9.00am Perth time you would need to login in to Sydney ticketek or 7.00am Perth time to NZ Ticketmaster for the NZ show.

The FAQ (http://www.u2.com/help/index/#2) says:

All subscribers with a valid subscription and presale code before Sun. 22 Aug. 7AM NZ / 5AM AU have access on Day 1 of the presale, 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. 

 

Which would put you in the Cedar group.

I did notice at one stage that the FAQ talked about a cut off of 8.00pm on August 23nd for Australia but later noticed it was changed to 8.00pm on August 22nd so maybe they cut off to the night of Sunday as it was release in the newspapers on Sunday ?

I now have to work the night of December 1 (Etihad).mad.gif I'm hoping there will be another presale for a second concert in melbourne.  I reckon there will be, although I always think the first concert on sale is often the best with the real die-hard keen fans. But.... there are tech hiccups sometimes with an opening night and a second concert gives the band a chance to loosen up on the first night.  At least that's my spin on it!ohwell.gif If anyone hears of a second gig, please post.

 

I mean if ACDC can sell out three shows at Etihad, there's got to be a chance for U2.

That sounds right (I haven't checked the time differences).

Lumped in Cedar even though I subscribed before the FAQ was even up.

 

I have no problem having a few different levels of priority to reward people that have been here long term but to lump people who buy in good faith without even knowing what the deal is with people that wait for the FAQ or who will be subscribing on the morning of the sale seems like a massive scam.

Thanks for the reply!

 

Aah. Okay. This makes sense then.

 

As I was listed as Magnificent, I'd planned to keep my Macbook close by for tomorrows presale. But if I'm actually in the Cedar group then I won't have to worry about it until Monday.

 

Cheers.
