Absolute Disgrace! (MERGED)

Recommended Posts

I think that someone needs to look into the legality of TM "flipping" tickets on their sister site as the sale is going on and at hugely inflated prices. They have figured out a way to really screw fans who are desperate and will out of frustration pay the money to ensure they will get to see the band that we all love so much.

 

This is the last one for me, I too have been doing this for a long time but this is that last straw for me. No more subscriptions, no more of the presale game, no more TM bullshit!

complete and utter f@*cking disgrace... 9:00 on the button, no redzone available... TICKETMASTER AND U2, you are a complete disgrace. membership WONT be renewed after 35 years going back to Propoganda days, have seen the band across Europe and USA for decades but this is the finish. this is NOT a case of being unlucky and supply exceeding demand which I would happily accept, this is simply a case of legalised ticket- touting.. thats the presale for both London dates and Dublin with genuine fans being totally shafted and swathes of tickets being creamed off at source by ToutMaster and resold for vast profits on their sister sites... someone want to try and explain why U2 (the band of the people) are simply allowing this to happen to their loyal and genuine fans??? answer is simple... MONEY!  U2 and their management team are completely complicit in this scam and couldnt give a SH1T about us... SIMPLE AS THAT. 

OK one thing I have to say is that people who are super angry they can't get Red Zone... you are not the only fan trying for Red Zone!  The tix are extremely limited, how many people to you fit in there?

 

I count myself SUPER lucky that I got for Pasadena, but I certainly could have got GAs or any other ticket I wanted in Red Hill presale.  I know some crazy stuff happened with the first London presale, but I don't believe that Red Hill presale entitled anyone to Red Zone tickets - there are a lot of Red Hill fans that want them this time around...

 

I do agree with all the other shit for the resale secondary market stuff though, but everyone in Red Hill should have been able to get SOME tickets, maybe not Red Zone though.

People dont even need to subscribe to try in tomorrows presale as you can search for tickets and then add a fan club bundle to your order on Ticketmaster if you get tickets.

Its basically a general sale with a $50 surcharge per order.

That is a farce.

The band really only care about money.

Its unlikely that anyone from the U2 management team looks at these pages but it would be nice if someone could report back and let them know what a mess the pre sales were. And how fed up and pig sick we are getting with constantly being robbed

 

But then again I remember this was all said the lasttour, and the tour before that, and the one before that as well

 

We're being taken to the cleaners and U2 are taking it to the bank

with you 100%...  membership up in March and WONT be getting renewed. I have spent £000's and £000's over the years on tours across USA, Europe and no end of Limited Edition merchandise, have an entire cupboard full of the stuff but this is the end of the road for me...  lost touch a long time ago and not to mention the recent lame excuse for yet another delay in the album release... I personally couldnt give a shit how 'relevant' it is in these Brexit/Trump times.... it should be about the music, not a political statement...

I have NO ISSUE with supply exceeding demand, what I DO HAVE AN ISSUE WITH is Ticketmaster making a complete arse of the European presale of RZ tickets last week and releasing the tickets on Wednesday in the presale WITHOUT the need for a code - ie open to ANYONE??? have we had an explanation or apology - NO! then surprise surprise, RZ tickets appear as if by magic on resale sites for £4K a ticket whilst genuine fans are being exploited!...  and for the record I'm not taking a lecture on the rights or wrongs from a U2 Fan who's first gig was 2009! I've been going to see them live since 1983 and have religiously paid my subscriptions LONG before the days of internet and U2.COM when the fanclub consisted of a quarterly magazine called Propoganda and havent missed a single year for 35 years!  - that was back in the day when the the music was the most important aspect, not 2017 when they trot out another BS lame excuse about Trump/Brexit having to delay the new album until the can see if its 'still relevant' - never heard so much garbage in my entire life! smokescreen after smokescreen

I don't have any inside info at all, just purely a guess but don't you think it's possible / probable that SOE is tied to the next major Apple iPhone release in Sept, which will be a totally new version, and as such, they are simply touring Joshua Tree to help fulfill obligations to the Live Nation contract?

I'm all for the Joshua Tree tour, believe me, but I think the whole nostalgia looking back thing, and the SOE delay are more likely tied to two major contracts and not cause some jackass was elected President.

So just because you attended concerts before someone else, you think that's a valid reason to show complete discontent to their personal opinion?

 

If as you say the music is the most important aspect, shouldn't you just be happy that you get an opportunity to attend the concert be it redzone or not? Given your length of membership I'm sure that you are well aware that you were never going to be able to cherry pick what exact tickets you wanted, especially given the limited run? I don't get this level of self entitlement, where one fan is more deserving then the next.

 

I tried for redzone tickets for Coke Park. But did I get them, no. But thanks to the presale I got pretty decent seats. Something I wouldn't have had a chance with during the regular sale.
