I understand that people who are in the "Experience" category get first access to presales.  Just to be clear site mods, what is the criteria for being in the "experience group"? Thanks v much.

How do I know what priority Presale group I’m in?
There are two Subscriber Presale groups participating in these Presales. Please refer to your U2.com Subscriber profile for more details on your designated Presale group and time.

The eXPERIENCE Group of longtime Subscribers are members who were current, paid Subscribers on December 24, 2016 and have maintained their paid status without lapsing. These Subscribers will have access on the first day of the Verified Subscriber Presale and will use a Presale access code to unlock ticket inventory. The codes will use the prefix: U18A followed by a unique (x) digit access code.

The iNNOCENCE Group are Subscribers who joined or upgraded an expired account after December 25, 2016. These Subscribers will have access on the second day of the Verified Subscriber Presale and will use a Presale access code to unlock ticket inventory. The codes will use the prefix: U18B followed by a unique (x) digit access code.

I miss the days when there was a separate group for Propaganda subscribers.

Absolutely. A real shame the long term propaganda fans are not given some recognition. I guess these days it may be hard to prove you were a propaganda subscriber.  Perhaps that is why.

There were 3 priority levels for 360.  No reason they couldn't have kept the same - tier 1 for longest term subscribers [whatever the 1st group was called for that tour], tier 2 dating back to the previous tour's renewals, tier 3 for newest sign-ons.  Tier 2 would gain people each tour if they kept up with subscriptions and Tier 1 would continue to be rewarded.

They actually had it this way when they switched to online presales.  When U2.com went live for the Vertigo tour presales in 2004, people who had been Propaganda members (which wasn't actually a yearly subscription, but a fee for four issues - which could come at random, it wasn't just four a year, so that membership could actually last a few years) received a special code to use when registering for U2.com.  This carried over your Propaganda history, and the presale order went Propaganda subscribers first, then new U2.com subscribers second.

In my opinion, they should have kept that grouping going forward.  Now, I'm treated exactly the same as everyone else who happened to sign up one day before the ticket sale announcement.  So my 20+ years of being registered with the fanclub means exactly as much as someone who just signed up a few weeks ago cause they heard a rumor there would be a tour.  Like scalpers.

My first reaction is: pretentious and somewhat obnoxious. Why should the same people, just because they are part of some elusive ‘club’ always have the same front row and have been to numerous gigs while other cognoscenti (also for years), but no member of what ever society, every time get the door slammed in their face and not be able to get any tickets. Live and live I would say and grant other the same fun with no restrictions. At the same time apprehending and knowing that this is a chimera, I’ve contemplated about it and ‘if you can’t beat them? I might as well join them. So, here I am, some what closer to the ‘unforgettable’ fire and hoping (it seems it’s going to be tougher ever time) to get a couple of tickets just to see those guys together with my wife  this time. And I even don’t want field ticks, just some seated will do fine. So fingers crossed.... and please don’t be offended.
