Hi all,

 

Had the same problems as everyone else at 10AM EST....lost multiple tickets when I hit the purchase button - internal service error.  I got frustrated and quit.

 

THE GOOD NEWS is that I JUST (4 hrs after window opened) purchaed 2 red zone to the last night at MSG.  EXACTLY what I wanted the big splurge for Christmas!

 

Keep trying!!!  Good luck to all!!!

There is a strange irony in knowing that had Ticketmaster worked as it should have, I'd've likely not gotten the seats I wanted...

It took me 28 minutes of hell to get two Boston tickets.  I had great seats twice and Ticketbastard crashed during the payment step and I lost them.  I finally got decent seats after 5 tries and 4 crashes and multiple times of my presale code being denied.   Pure misery and completely unnecessary.  If Ticketbastard's IT infrastructure can't handle that kind of traffic, then they shouldn't have multiple high-profile shows going on sale at the same time on the same day!!!   But I guess when you're a monopoly, you don't have to be any good.   Damn sad state of affairs if you ask me.  When I read about all the people who weren't able to get tickets, I feel very lucky that I somehow managed to succeed.

Tried to get tickets to MSG for July 18th for 1 hour, tried 5 times in cart and then almost to end of purchase and Internal Failure.  I then tried July 19th for GA and same thing for another 1/2 hour.  Finally 1 1/2 hours later, I was able to secure two GA tickets, but I wanted seats, but too expensive they kept offering 312.00 per ticket.  Way too much for me.  Ticketmaster is the worst, it was so much better with Live Nation.

What a joke.   Used the app for iOS and get to the checkout process three times.  Each time bombs out.  FInally get through......Oh, sorry there aren't anymore tickets available.   

 

Well, I guess I stand corrected.  I got an e-mail a half hour later congratulating me on my Travel Insurance purchase.  I was like HUH, my order went through?  So I dug a little and sure enough, there was a TM charge on my credit card after all.   Called up TM just to make sure that my order indeed went through and since it did......San Jose here we come!!!

It's always like this. every U2 tour. Ticketmaster has huge marketshare. It really is a joke because TM has been selling tickets for decades and STILL can't get it right. Amazing that the Propaganda snail ways was less stressful & more effective. And..... we all pay the INFLATED fees. I feel for all of you having problems today.

Finally got in for two NY shows.  This was ridiculous.  An hour of pure stress and anger at Ticketbastard.

 

I do not look forward to trying for a few others on December 8th.

I'm in the same boat.  I need two more tickets for the rest of the family or somebody is going to be drawing straws.  The idea of going through this again Monday morning makes my head hurt.

Got my Chicago GA tix for June 24!  But not without sweating it out during a one hour ordeal.  Got repeated 401 error messages, had to re-enter presale code multiple times, also "experienced" the infamous spinning wheel of death, then on a whim I went to another computer at work and after about an hour (11am Central) I got right on through the process.  Click, click, click, bang bang and purchased.  What a relief to see that receipt in my inbox!  Bottom line, DON'T GIVE UP!  Remember the general public can't get a hold of any tickets till Monday.  Keep trying and KEEP COOL!
