Tickets Suggestion Next Tour - I Like What The Stones Are Doing

I know it's a long time until the next tour, but I hope that U2 pays attention to what other bands are doing for their fans.  I love being close and not paying a huge sum for a ticket, but the General Admission last time got to be awful - wait in line all day just to be squashed by overcrowding in the pit.  Here's what the Rolling Stones are doing.

 

 

As a part of the general on sale, there is something for everyone, including over a 1,000 tickets per show at $85 (including service charges). Some will be among the best seats in the house in the Tongue Pit, with others spread around the arena. Tickets will be sold as a pair. You will find out your seat location when you pick them up the night of the show. Other tickets range from $150- $600 (plus service charges).

We will be using strict anti-scalper measures to ensure that these $85 tickets go to Stones fans and don’t end up on the resale market with wildly inflated prices. We appreciate your attention to the following, so that you have the best experience possible:

  • You must pick up your tickets in person, along with your guest. Once you have the tickets in hand, you will be escorted into the arena. There will not be an opportunity to leave with your tickets before going into the show.
  • Picture ID, your confirmation number, and the credit card used to make the purchase are required for pick-up. Without these things, you will not be able to pick up your tickets.

If we suspect any reselling or transfer of these tickets they will be immediately voided and you will not be entitled to any refund.

 
 
Just as I liked the lottery for the Vertigo Tour, I'd be willing to take my chances with a system like this - especially for an arena tour.

Interesting idea, I love the anti-touting measures. What happens if you pay more for your ticket? Do you get to know in advance? Shame if that's the case because it seems a little discriminatory for those who can't afford expensive tickets.

Hmmmm

 

so could be anywhere!, i'd prefer to know exactly where i'd be when i buy. Showing I.D, confirmation number and credit card used should have be done years ago, nice to see its starting to happen now.

Except that it kind of works against people who don't necessarily have ID or credit card - e.g. people my age who have their parents get the tickets and then pay them back afterwards. If my tickets had been bought in one of my parents' names then I'd be in rather a spot of bother...

I know that ticketmaster have said stuff about needing the card it was booked on and id etc... but the venues don't carry out these things - well never any of the ones which I have been too. 

Am sure there must be some way of getting around if someone else has bought the tickets for you - like steal their card :)

17. So in November I should be old enough to get one. But obviously you have to be careful with those things...
