The only way to truly get rid of scalpers would be if everyone refused to buy from them. That's what I do: I never pay more than face value for tickets. Of course if I have extra I never ask for more than face value either, and try to find the legit fans if it's an in-demand show. But so long as some people are willing to pay extra money, there will be a market.

Well spoken and thank you.  One can even scalp tickets on Ticketmaster these days; under the guise that your scalped ticket is, 'verified'.  It's like letting a thief go because he or she has a valid ID.

To begin: those who are still trying to get tickets, the very best of luck!

For those who were fortunate enough not to experience snafus during this whole ordeal, two bits of news to pass on.

I got two different messages from Ticketmaster today - one to redeem the offer to receive a copy of the new SoE CD, and a second to say that my ticket for one of the shows was already printed and is being mailed imminently.

So, if you ordered without difficulty, check your email - if you were curious, the arena that told me about my ticket status was for the Newark show on June 29th.

...and more news!

The ticket I referred to above arrived in my mailbox today! :o

I would have to guess that this is the fastest pre-sale ticket I have ever received. In any case, if you were fortunate enough not to experience the snafus of the last week, check your mail today or soon.

Again, good luck to those still waiting to obtain tickets...

Sadly, for everyone of us who do not wish to give a nickel to the scalpers, there is at least one who will.  Ever since Elevation '01, I have not been to a show where it wasn't sold out.  I've wondered if the band could still pack the house, and they always did.  I always looked around the arena/stadium just to see if there were open rows--even in the nosebleeds--and there weren't.  By the time the band took the stage, it was filled.

U2 may be one of the last big bands and that have such a huge and loyal following.  Even with the price of tickets soaring with each tour, the demand is still there.  Scalpers will thrive, which sucks, and many of us will left out due to cost, TM ineptitude or plain old unavailability.  I love them band and always give it the college try, but this time around I was let down.  No code means no tickets.  :(

Don't lose hope and give up on checking for tickets.  I've never seen tickets not become available after the show supposedly sells out and I've never seen great tickets, including GA, not become available the day of shows.

I won't, trying to stay positive, but TM & StubHub aren't helping.

I don't get it. I got my innocence code without use (I couldn't get GA as many of you guys), but the new registration (for the 2nds shows that are about to announce) for u2.com subscribers seems that you have to renew. So, the code I didn't use, is no longer useful for the new dates? I'm so frustrated at this point!
