Presale Disappointment / But Still My Fave Band (MERGED)

Recommended Posts

Congrats to those that got the tix they wanted with today's North American presale!  Like many I suppose, I rejoined U2.com with the expectation of being able to participate in pre-sale tickets for Los Angeles Rosebowl show and have some options.  Unfortunately, when I entered the ticket presale at exactly 9am, there were no $35 or $70 tickets available...only $100 (back of venue). With a family of 4, plus fees + $40 parking, a $500+ experience had me scratching my head and 2017 Budget resolutions, so I sadly bailed. I wanted this to be my kids first Rock show but can't responsibly pull it off. I'm going to try and get a refund of my $50 Club Membership which I purchased yesterday...they may need the $ so not holding my breath :)

 

UPDATE JANUARY 19:

 

Good things come to those that wait!  I started this thread a few days ago very disappointed with value of my "pre-sale" in getting decent tix for the Rosebowl show...

 

However, the addition of the second RoseBowl Show MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE!  My 9am pre-sale effort got my family 4 GA Tix!  Super excited to take my 2 kids to see my fave band since 1986.  It'll be their first rock show. Can't think of a better way to get their concert career going.

 

I felt the need to remedy by salty post of a few days ago now that my presale investment has payed off.

 

Enjoy the shows World!

Boston for me nothing.  All they had was seats near the opposite end-zone.  Now they only have nosebleeds which are very scary at Gillette for $122! No thank you. First time in over 20 years I have been let down by fan club presale.

 

No GA or Red Zone when I was trying incessantly at 9:00 AM this morning.

It seems to be completely random.  For NJ my code won't even work.  One hour there are GA for Boston, then there isn't a few minutes later.  Then there is again.  For London, all day at different times, I have only gotten message saying there are no tickets of any kind to be had.

Same here. Logged-in with my code at 9:00 AM sharp, and there was already nothing left on the floor. I was/am at work, so I can't spend all day trying—though I tried for a good 45 minutes. Just tried again, for the heck of it... nothing.

 

Never registering for another pre-sale again. Pay a fee to be disappointed!? I could have accomplished that free of charge.  <_<
