Certainty of ticket

Hello guys,

 

I'm new on here (like you guessed!), long time fan but only had a paid up membership once.

 

Now I've got a pre-sale code, would you say I'm fairly certain to get a ticket, albeit may not be best of my choice if I'm in the wires group.

 

As with no doubt many others, bucket-list of seeing the lads in Dublin, having seen them several times in UK. So, does the pre-sale just have a set number of tickets, or does it allow all members to be satisfied by close on Friday ?

 

Cheers

From FAQs/Help Page:

Q - Does a Subscription to U2.com guarentee I can purchase tickets?
A - No. U2.com presales provide early access but cannot guarentee tickets. Tickets are sold on a first come, first served basis.

Thanks for the info. What I wondered was whether there are only a limited amount of tickets for the pre-sale. For instance are there just say 5000 tickets held for presale and the rest go general (or to the agencies for re-sale!)?

We are not privy to that info here shack, which show were you thinking of going to?

Hi Bigwave,

Dublin Saturday. Probably the most in-demand show of the lot. :)

 

I'd just be happy to land any ticket to be there, not bothered about being in the zone etc, being there for the atmosphere is the main thing.

 

I'm just curious as to how these things work from members past experience. Obviously last tour had a limited number of tickets being arenas, I'd have hoped that if you are a member you'd have a shot at a ticket, even if it's the back row in the house, before the general sale happens.

Knock on wood, but my experience has been stadium tours are a little easier to get tickets than arenas. Word of advice though, if you are trying to get tickets from the states to anyplace in Europe, make sure your credit card company knows this beforehand. I learned that the hard way :/

Cheers, best of luck to us all!

Interesting to know how many paid subscribers are there on u2.com, and how many will be in for croke park ? !

a lot, I tell you. ....presales for I+E were crazy due to limited capacity. Luckily, Croke Park has large capacity, but nevertheless you'll come across people from all over the world. Always cool.

Yeah no doubt it will be fantastic. I took the chance of booking a central hotel today. There's very little left that's decent for <€350, I got a 3* guesthouse for €220 a ten minute walk from the stadium / city centre.
