Hi folks, I have my presale code but can't figure out how to get to the point of actually purchasing the tickets, where exactly do I click on to get to that place?

Also, what are perceived as the best blocks at both Dublin and Belfast arenas? I thought the Dublin area was all standing downstairs with seating overhead but when I search for a plan of the arena, it comes up as it being all seated, is that correct or not? Is the Dublin arena the one that used to be The Point? I'm guessing it is.

Any advice appreciated.

Tickets for both cities can be purchased through ticketmaster.ie. Search for U2 and a list of concerts will come up.

 

See the 3 Arena floor plan here http://www.ticketmaster.ie/u2-innocence-experience-tour-2015-dublin-11-23-2015/event/18004F2990C82417?artistid=736365&majorcatid=10001&minorcatid=1

 

The blue area is standing with tiered seating above. I got a seat in Block E, excellent seats overall. Blocks CDE are the ones right in the middle and straight across from the stage. B and F are good too. I have sat in A and G before, wouldn't be too gone on these blocks but you're still close to the stage as the arena isn't hat big (capacity is approx 14,000).

Many thanks for that info but I have just realised that I can't make a purchase anyway until tomorrow lunchtime as I'm in the UK. Hope there will be some decent tix still up for grabs.

Out of interest, did it let you choose specific blocks/seats or did it select them automatically?

Also, which venue is perceived to be better, Dublin one or Belfast?

You can go for Best available or select your tickets at a specific price category. If I remember correctly, you could also select a specific block. My initial search was Best available, got offered pretty crappy and expensive seats, rejected those and specified my price and got much better seats.

Thanks folks, interestingly when I booked my ticket for London, I got offered what I considered was a poor ticket in the presale and rejected it. I held my nerve and waited for the general sale and snagged a much better seat via that route so it will be interesting to see what the presale offers me tomorrow. I find the secret with these things is not to panic and not to necessarily dive in for the first seats offered to you and often presales don't have all the best seats/tickets. It was though a lot less stressful back in the day when I just rolled up at the Liverpool Royal Court box office in 1983 and just queued for a short while to get my ticket. I long for those simpler times rather than today's corrupt ticketing systems with all those rip off secondary ticketing sites and all the confusing presales requiring this particular credit card or a specific mobile phone network to qualify. Guess I'm just a grumpy old man now :)
