People are under the assumption that all the great tickets come out first. That isn't the case. They are released in waves, just because something isn't available right now doesn't mean it won't pop up in 15 minutes, or 30 minutes, etc. Just keep trying.

 

...

 

I accept that as the reality; however, it should be so damn hard to buy tickets on a FanClub presale. The best seats allocated for the pre-sales should be available from the beginning - why the hell are paying fan-club members having to play that game?.

 

I see your point and tend to agree. I have said it before and will say it again, a lot of these problems would have been alleviated if they simply went back to THREE or possibly FOUR pre-sale groups for fan club members. The longer a person is a member the earlier the group they are in. It's always worked very smoothly for previous tours as far back as I can remember when they had three groups devoted to fan club members, I personally feel if they were to go back to that or even better add a fourth group for people who basically just signed up or been a member for under four years much if not all of the issues would be non-existent. This tour they basically considered anyone who had signed up a month ago and someone who had been a member for 30 years as a long term subscriber and in the Red Hill group. I'd almost guarantee if they go to three or four pre-sale groups for fan club members (and these four groups would be before any other presale offered in my opinion) you would find a massive decrease in complaints and issues.

This is total CRAP.  The only thing good that has happened in the US since the election has been the announcement of this tour.  My family is so excited and my boys are trying to learn U2 songs with their music teachers.  We do not spend much but we go out for U2.  This is a slap in the face to all of us that there is one show in Southern California and none in San Diego (AGAIN).  I used to get so offended when people would complain about getting the new Album for FREE and stick up for these guys because they were different.  It does not feel like that today.  This is total crap!  No floor, errors, stupid street sign and storefront verifications for nothing!!!  Thanks U2.  Thanks for making us all feel worse when you could have made it better.

 

Keith yesterday during the Red Hill presale it was very difficult to get tickets as well. Ticketmaster enables just the feature for the TM site to search for tickets for you when they are overloaded. Once traffic on the site dies down, the second option appears that is you can search for them on the map yourself. That is what happened yesterday for Seattle and i suspect all other venues, once traffic died down, and you could see the actual map and choose based on section, there literally were a TON of tickets available. I checked again last night before I went to bed and there were still several hundred pairs of tickets left for sale. Now GA or RZ were not showing up but reserved were and in all the price levels too. So my advice to you is when the TM site isn't as busy, check again for the show you want, and select the option to "Buy on Map" and then search that way and chances are you will find a healthy amount of tickets that you can choose from.

This is fraudulent, there was no "wires" pre-sale.  Anybody can buy with the pre-sale by paying $50 extra for a U2.com membership.  They lied, sold us a pre-sale that never happened, and it wasn't even possible to buy GA within seconds of the on-sale time.  They owe us our money back.

 

As a follow-up, I finally got GA tickets 2 1/2 hours into the presale, so all's well that ends well...but really, there's no reason I should have to be a bad employee for an entire morning to complete a transaction that should take a minute.  Further, this was not a pre-sale at all - anybody could buy tickets by paying an extra $50 at the same time as the ticket purchase - which means that non-fan-club members had an advantage: they only had to pay $50 if they found acceptable tickets.  The Wires group had ALREADY paid the $50 on a hope and a prayer, and got zero advance access for it.  Ultimately I have the tickets I wanted - but this process was not fair and needs to be corrected going forward.

 

Yup, I agree with you totally. I was really choked to log in for the Wires presale this morning, only to find that anyone can log on right now and pay an extra $50 to purchase early. Absolute BS.

Can some please explain to me how one seller on Stubhub has 30 GA tickets for sale for Chicago ?!?!?!  I can't even get 1 GA ticket for Chicago and this person has 30.  I thought there was a 4 ticket limit per code.  There is some fishy stuff going on and as always the fans get screwed.  

Stubhub often sells tickets on speculation which means they don't actually have tickets yet. Common practice
