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

Recommended Posts

Well I just had a very interesting conversation with TICKETEK...the girl I spoke to assured me 100% that the fan club members were entitled to 4 tickets per city per member ie: 4 for sydney, 4 for Melb, etc. she checked with her supervisor who confirmed also

 

Per the purchase website:

 

 

U2 FAN CLUB

Pre-sale starts : Thu 26 Aug, 11am

Pre-sale ends* : Mon 30 Aug, noon

General public on sale : Fri 3 Sep, 9am

 

A pre-sale is an opportunity to secure tickets prior to the General Public, not a preferential seating service.

A selection of seating throughout the venue is made available for pre-sales.

*Or until pre-sale allocation is sold out.

On sale times are quoted in local time.

 

TICKET LIMIT: 4 ticket per city per member.

 

 

This was posted on the purchase page!!!

 

 

Pretty clear to me that I was entitled to buy 2 for Sydney and 1 for Brisbane

 

And people wondering why this is confusing!!!

dfunk257']Well I have to say that this is very dissapointing. Why on earth would U2 wanna make their fans only buy tickets to 1 show? Sounds ridiculous to me.I have a major problem here cause I live in Sydney, But I am unable to go to the show on the 13th, so I'm hoping they announce more shows and then I will be able to use my code, or will I? I've paid and joined up U2.com to get access to the pre sale, but due to my situation what am I supposed to do now? I can't believe this.

If I understand correctly you've already bought 3 tickets for shows in other cities and you want to use the code again for a 4th ticket in a second show (if there is one) in Sydney? You can't, and it has never been said that this would be possible. In the USA this would be possible but in Europe it isn't (the two cases that would have appeared in the FAQ before the NZ/AUS rules appeared). 

If you've assumed you would without reading the FAQ (which has been updated for a few days now) and/or reading the forum (which admittedly is way to long to be useful unless you spend some time going through it) then that's unfortunate, but the rules were there. 

 

I haven't bought any tickets yet because I can't go to the Sydney show on the 13th that's why I don't know what to do, whether I should buy tickets fof Melbourne or wait and see if any more shows are announced. I read everything before I signed up but the rule on tickets wasbnever clear enough for me, I assumed u could buy 4 tickets maximum for each subscription, and that there would not bd a rule saying you can only buy 4 tickets fof just 1 show. Im sorry but alot of people have been confused about this not just me, they way it has been written is not clear. Anyway, I need to know 1 more very important thing. IF MORE SHOWS ARE ANNOUNCED, WILL THERE BE ANOTHER U2.COM PRE SALE?

That's what we thought - and the email from U2.com contradicted that and implied that it was per code - not per member. 

I'll go crazy if I don't go crazy over tickets! haha 

Oh well. Fingers crossed. Hopefully we will know before next Friday. 

But awesome to hear the happy stories - especially the people who could manage the [RED] zone. You guys are gonna have a wicked night! :)

I ve been a member ages and had 2 codes. 4 of us wanted Red zone, 4 wanted seating. 8 in total and 4 per code. ticketmaster wouldnt allow this as different seating types cant be mixed on a transaction, and they only allowed 2 red per transaction. that meant i could either only buy 4 red zone, or 2 red and 4 seats, or 8 seats. what do you do? all of this became apparent an hour before the release, there was a note on the presale board that it was trying to get sorted.

pretty disheartened to think now that the conflict between rules and poor management might take tickets off me.

 

heres hoping

Well, in the defence of web geeks everywhere large batch emails like that can take hours to process, especially on a database as large as the U2.com one. 

We used to have a database of 100,000 people and when we did a targeted mail out it could take around 2 hours. So many people could have received their email a few hours or even the night before. 

Batch email and SMS are tricky things - and often have to be 'approved' by ISP spam filters and the like.
