American buying ticket to London show


Recommended Posts

  • Subscriber

I've never bought a ticket to an international show - but I'm in a situation where I have a chance to see them at the London show.

 

I've already noticed that when I looked for the London show through www.ticketmaster.com, it was not there - I had to go to the UK site.  My regular ticketmaster.com sign-in wouldn't work there, so I had to create a new profile for the UK site.  

 

So - all that seems to be set up and ready for me to hit the pre-sale (at 4am - ugh, but worth it. :)).

 

My question is this:  Has anyone ever bought tickets to a show through one of ticketmaster's international sites before (in this case, the UK) - are there any other surprises in store for me, or is it pretty straightforward?

 

 I know that during a pre-sale, things get slowed down quite a bit, tickets are flying everywhere, etc. - and I don't want to waste any time and end up missing getting a ticket (shooting for Red Zone, assuming I don't have to get a second mortgage to afford it) if there's something I can do now to make it easier.

 

I've already got my payment method entered, and the pre-sale code ready to go.  Any other tips/advice?

I think you're all set. Please be aware that things will be slow when the presale starts as a lot of people try to get their hands on tickets. You can always use different browsers, but normally there's plenty of tickets and you'll get there.

 

If not, keep an eye on this forum as a second night can be added and you'll get another shot. They won't add this immediately, I can't imagine that the 80.000 tickets will sell out in the first wave of the presale.

Is It one ticket on pre sale per member or can you buy more ?

 

From the FAQ on the help page (http://www.u2.com/help):

 

 

Q - How Many Tickets can I buy? What is the ticket limit?

A - As a paid-up U2.com Subscriber you are eligible to purchase up to FOUR (4) tickets for any show or combination of shows (for example you can purchase 2 tickets for a show in New York and 2 tickets for a show in San Francisco, or 1 ticket for New York, 1 ticket for San Francisco, 1 ticket for London and 1 ticket for Rome.)

I Live in Mexico City. For the U2360° Tour I bought tickets for the London shows... not an issue or a problem. At all...

do you foresee any issues with having 2 ticketmaster accounts - one for US and one for Ireland - that have the same email and billing address, but different cards?  I'd be buying 2 tix per show, 4 total, so not going over the limit.  I'm slightly afraid of getting one or both of my orders cancelled... :o

Should not have any problems, but if you do, let us know.
