I have a direct link to share. How do I PM the mod? -- NM figured it out.

Move your mouse over the username on this post (that would be Max Tsukino - but you can also PM the rest of the mod team: Bigwave and Mich40)... a window will appear.

 

Click the SEND MESSAGE button... Another window will appear where you can write the PM.

For those who are confused about people selling tickets, as a few of the moderators have posted out like Max, those sellers do not have the tickets. What they are doing are a few things, namely using the power of the U2 name to market their own ticket site. It's much easier for them to "appear" to have tickets thinking (or hoping) they would get them when they are released and then say to someone inquiring "Oh we sold out" if they end up not getting them. These reselling sites also hope people come back for other tickets, etc. Remember the old saying if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is and that certainly is the case when it comes to these sites claiming to have tickets before anyone else. Craigslist sites are pretty much flooded with these types of sellers.

NO IMAGES OF TICKETING SITES, PLEASE.  IF YOU HAVE LINKS, PM THEM TO A MODERATOR.

And they take people's payments?

Just checked Stubhub for Vancouver show, and more than half the (several hundred!) available seats are instant delivery - despite all venue seats stating "credit card delivery". And damn sure they're not sending you their credit card too.

How convenient - TM owns SH, which suddenly has transferable tickets - at twice the price - for a show that apparently has a foolproof system to prevent transfer. TM = bloody scammers.

Not that I'm defending StubHub, but they're actually owned by eBay, not Ticketmaster. So who knows how sellers on there are able to instantly transfer credit card entry tickets, but it's not because of the company that owns them. Sucks for fans no matter what though.
