I been a huge fan for 20 years, ive only been able to see them once on the 360 tour, I had tickets to Joshua tree but they canceled cause of the riots we were having here in st louis. Now I just purchased tickets today for the show may 4th, I bought the red zone tickets, what is your opinion on them? I've never purchased them before. would be nice to hear from someone who has more knowledge than me about the tickets. thank you guys! god bless.

I did RedZone for TJT and it was well worth it.  There is a special spot to pick up your RedZone stuff.  However, it goes to Will Call if you don't pick it up by a certain time.  I did GA this time for the LA show in May  I think the stage set up is the same for I&E and I think somewhere in the middle was better place to be when i had GA for those shows at the Forum in 2015.  They spend a lot of time on the b-stage and on the catwalk and in the cage/video screen thing.  So glad Lakers/Clippers/Kings have them at the Forum.  It's smaller and a great arena.

ok just caught up with this good thread.  I want to say thanks to the mods.  I know there are some horror stories, and I think the A code folks had an issue, but this seems like less issues and there are more B codes.  I got my text, and so did my wife.  She got STL GA.  I got Uniondale.  We had GA for NY on her birthday in 2010, the last show of leg in Meadowlands, lol 7-19.  Anyway, Bono's back so the leg was canned I think is what happened.

Anyway, brother and sister didn't get tickets with their code.  I told them to assume they can try again when other shows are released.  I hope that is the case.  I assume it will. So if you have a code, some big cities will be available and there is still hope.  I had the renew too early issue up in the top of thread, but that worked out.  I think the Innocence group seemed to go ok.  There is not a lot of shows and I think that explains why the GA are ALL gone.  My brother in law as an A code he didn't use yet, holding out for a Detroit show, and he was saying more cities were out of GA before B codes, us, started.

Anyway, thanks to the mods and u2.  I know it's not smooth but today seemed "normal" with one offs. I think the A folks got crushed with the lotto algo used but this seemed ok.

Can a mod let the folks who didn't use codes yet know if there is hope with future shows. I am hoping the presales continue this week and then Monday during the public sale they announce more shows and the presale "A" folks start up again Tuesday.  Will there be a presale for the added shows?

Thanks again u2.com.  I miss propaganda and opening that envelope to see what you got (2 shows 2 tix each i recall), but this was ok for me and mrs today.  We missed Chicago, add Chicago2 PLEASE like the guy said up thread!.

People have to realize that the E&I tour, so far, is a small tour.  15 shows announced so far.  Tickets are in HIGH demand.  On the I&E tour, between London and NYC there were more shows than the E&I tour (so far).

Last time in NYC there were 8 shows, so you have an 8 times better chance of the tickets you wanted.

Let's all sit back and hope for more shows being announcec.

I think this was a tes tof teh VF system, did not go so well.  They will ahve to tweak TM's VF algorithm and maybe there are some reasons that people did not get codes.

This was just one presale folks. Don’t give up all hope!  There is still the general sale and there will undoubtedly be many more shows added. 

Agreed. MANY more shows will be added.

Just looking at the second half of the tour from Montreal to Newark, they play a show, then the next show is four days later. It follows this pattern all the way until the end. There is no way they are only playing 7 shows in 25 days (counting inclusively) in this relatively small part of North America (i.e., Southern Quebec/Ontario to Washington, D.C.). Every concert announced so far during this part of the tour will very likely have a second date at/near the ones currently announced - MSG will very likely have two more. If I were a betting person, June 23 or 30 would be a very likely 'Saturday Night Live' appearance.

Just keep your eyes open...

Saturday Night Live wraps up the season in May, so more likely Jimmy Fallon if he is working that week.

I understand what you’re getting at, but the reality is that tickets are still available in the presales for the limited shows announced so far.  The initial shows of each city should always favor the Experienced group.  The sad fact is that there are Innoncence members out there who became a member in the last few minutes before registration closed that have presale tickets while Propaganda-era Experienced members did not even get a code.  Damn, not even a code.  Think about that.  Forget about getting the tickets with the code.  They didn’t even get a code.  Wow.  Just wow.

I have never had a presale ticket purchase issue ever....I have always been able to buy a ticket using my code during presale...until now, I was in experience group, which ifelt lucky to have....tried for GA's for 1 show (DC) and at 10am there were no tickets....never ever, all day...that is some kind of bullshit!! so, I do not have a ticket even with the experience code

did they make you go to will call to pick up your ticket? 

The day of the show they had a small tent table set up outside the stadium, not sure how they do it for arena shows.

I don't blame the band. 

I blame the scalpers who caused the band to go in this direction. I blame Live Nation and TM for being greedy. I have been a life long fan and a long time member. I did not get tickets today. While I know I can probably get tickets during the general sale, and that I can use my codes for any possible added dates (Chicago), I'm honestly done. I will no longer renew my membership. 

This band is my church. Right now I feel like my church has abandoned me. 

And that breaks my heart.
