Toronto - Presale crap

Recommended Posts

 

Anyone else INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATED trying get GA for Vancouver? I started trying immediately when the presale started and the only options TM is giving me are nosebleeds. NOTHING ELSE. I know U2 has thousands of fans, but there is no way that all GAs are sold out. 

 

I am trying the TM website linked through U2.com/tour, the TM app, the TM website through my phone, the TM website on my computer. Have cleared the cache each time I get "unable to process your request". Getting no love.

 

Anyone else sick of selecting storefronts and street signs and numbers? AHH!

 

We were having the same issue for the Toronto show but after about 2.5 hours, GA tickets magically appeared.  I'm assuming the pre-sale started at 9am local time for you guys so you might need to give it some time.

 

i guess they were having the same issues in local Pacific time when that show went on sale.  Bet they get some 2:30 minutes into the presale.  My assumption is that they sell the seats first that are available on the presale...once those are gone...They release the GA...ha, funny system if that's the case.

I managed to get 4 GA nearly 3 hours after presale started today. I gave up after two but decided to check and BAM. Smooth. I use the iPhone app. Works much better than computer. All tickets are CC entry too. First time for me. I usually get e-ticket.

Presale I was right in at 9 am no ga tickets for floor only GA section 500 . It was so confusing because the fucking ticketmaster website gave misleading info. And no explanation of what a GA was and after I picked the tickets the GA dropped from the order. Now it is nose bleed reserved . So misleading and dishonest . Fake media. Disgusted with the corporate bullshit. I had 2 choices the tickets below or GA standing room only section 500 . So cunfusing. On 360 it said GA floor. And it was quite apparent what you were buying.

U2.com Wires Group Presale

Section 515R Row 2 Seat 9-12

Now I am even more angry.  Ticketmaster dropping GA tickets four hours after the presale opens is terrible.  Given past tour experiences, I figured that I needed to act fast and get what I could.  So, when I couldn't get Toronto, I grabbed GA for Cleveland instead.  Why would we assume that waiting four hours would yield tickets after getting shut out for several hours of trying.  The end result is that now I have used my presale codes and can't get the tickets that I originally wanted that are now mysteriously available hours upon hours after the presale began.  This is beyond frustrating as a fan!

Speculation on my part but I wouldn't be surprised if Live Nation actually "holds" the better tickets back initially figuring that fans in a panic will pay the premium for the $280 seats or a VIP package. I know sometimes it takes a bit for their system to refresh itself as the unsold seats in people's carts get released but it was crazy how suddenly all the GA started popping up after nothing for hours.

There are a good number $280 seats still available. The 200s look all gone. Lots of 500s.

 

And now Blue Jays season seat holder have a window.

Did anyone have luck getting Red Zone VIP yesterday? I didn't but I was thinking they would add more since they only allot a small amount per presale.

I got Red Zone tickets Wednesday at 9:02 with no issue. Everything went smoothly.

No issues getting tickets in Wires pre-sale.  As of now, 9:30 PM thursday, there are still seats coming up +GA.

hopefully if they add a 2nd show they will let those who got shut out first chance at tickets.

 

There are still seats available (01:13 AM and I just pulled up 4.). Nobody is shut-out.
