People that only joined this week are part of the 2nd pre-release on MONDAY! (called Cedar)
If you try and buy tickets now and are part of the 2nd pre-release group then you see this message
The password entered is not yet active. Please check your information regarding the time frame when you are elligible for this offer.

 

It's a bit of a shame cause I joined on Sunday and I'm still part of the 2nd pre-release group, oh well

Well the concerts were in the news by Sunday morning so you should have joined before Sunday.

 

Not wanting to boast but I joined back in June when there were rumours in the press that they were coming out in December. It was a risk that paid off because I ended up grouped with all the prervious levels in the first group. Apologies to all the members who have been subscribing for years. I would have happily waited my turn if it had been a staggered presale, maybe the australian ticket sellers couldn't rig it up that way.

Yea all good!

I don't really follow U2 so I didn't know they were coming here until I saw it in the paper and I thought I would surprise the misses with two tickets (for her and her bestie) pimp.gif

I don't believe for 1 second that she is the only 1 doing this. It goes alot deeper, I believe that Ticketek are also involved in this ticket scam, it has been happening for a long time now that everytime a major event goes up for sale, at least a quarter of the tickets end up on eBay for at least double the price. How else do these people get so many of these tickets?As for being a big U2 fan, this ticketek crap is the reason why I joined U2.com, so I could avoid this crap, it's just ridiculous and something needs to be done about it. But I doubt anything will get done, Ticketek will just keep makin loads of extra $$$$$, in the end that's what it's all about for these losers!

it said on the faq you could only use your code ONCE!!!! i just had to fork out for four brisbane tickets now looking to trade!! WHAT THE HELL!?!?!


Chill, we will be auditing the system and canceling tickets and memberships of those cheats - Baja

Baja Girl - I was buying 2 tickets at Brisbane and had an error from ticketek so went through process again and this time got confirmation.  Since have had 2no. confirmations for Brisbane (2 tickets each confirmation) emailed to me.  Checked bank and 2 lots of cash taken out!  I am not a cheat and would be devistated if my tickets are taken off me.  If there is some way to get the 2nd lot refunded would appreciate it.

Hopefully it will mean people who bought 10, 20, 30 tickets who are clearly rorting the system, whereas if you bought 2 x 2 which is 4 anyway then that should be fine or if you bought 6 and were entitled to 8 via two codes.

 

I saw someone who posted here that they kept alternately trying their two codes because they were having issues and I know that I had 1 window open with a text file containing my codes, 1 window contianing my credit card numbers and another with Ticketek and was swapping around to use one code for 4 P2 tix and 1 code and a different ticketek account and CC to buy 1 P3 ticket for my brother.

 

I was so worried out about using the same code twice, although I presumed it wouldn't let me, or the same credit card twice or the same ticketek account twice, but I'm pretty sure I got it all right. For something that should be enjoybale in the end,  it was very stressful over the last day or two and especially this morning.

I did same as you Nnixx - don't want to risk losing my RZ tix that's for sure :)

 

I will try the ticketmaster public sale for the 4 seats I need to get for other friends in the group as they're not as 'fanatical' as moi :D

friend of mine subscribed today and was already able to purchase tickets, so the system is flawed. wont work for me of course, seeing as I missed  the first group by only 24hours when I subscribed.

 

on another note, do you think any red zone tickets will be available when the 2nd tier of subscribers can access on Monday for Aussie shows?

Perth RZ 1 (Edge's side) was gone when I attempted again, so I selected RZ 2 (Adam's side) :)

 

likely they will release some more for next group on Monday

 

(those are just guesses as to which side is which btw )

So I wanted three tix for Brisbane (2 seated & 1GA) and the Ticketek site wouldn't let me have a mixture of tickets. So I completed the seated ticket order & then did a separate one for the 1x GA ticket. In my haste I just pasted the same code previously used. I do have a second unused code that I'm more than willing to have applied for the GA order. I've got awesome seated tickets and I don't want them cancelled. Please help.
