Same thing here... Propaganda member for over 25 years, have seen every tour since ZooTV,

Was just shafted out of attending the St Louis show due to riots, and now U2 leaves us out in the cold in the name of hitting the scalpers where it hurts.  Really guys?  Already had to have credit card verified swipe to get in JT... how much more "secure" do these shows have to be?

Looks like U2 is erring on the side of blocking their longest and most loyal fans  -- BUT NOT BEFORE THEY HIT ME UP FOR A SUBSCRIPTION RENEWAL THAT HADN'T EXPIRED!!  :-(

I have no proof to back this up, but my thought is that this is NOT a lottery system.  I believe Ticketmaster Verified Fan program is hyper-sensitive and automatically shut-out some accounts that looked suspicious.  I bought tickets to U2i&e and JT30 for several cities and I believe the Verified Fan algorithm looked at my purchase history and red-flagged me as suspicious.  Pretty bogus as most of my tickets were credit card entry GA.  How could I scalp a ticket when I need my own credit card at multiple venues?  The cold reality is I expect my Ticketmaster account to be shut-out of the general onsale as well.  The whole tour is Fan Verified, and I'm on the blacklist now.  Hopefully U2 can respond quickly to the negative feedback.  I just urge all fans in the same boat to light up the boards so they hear us.  Someone once told me the power of the people is greater than the people in power.

In an effort to keep out scalpers, they kept out fans and let scalpers in. Fantastic! 

VERY TRUE!!!

I doubt that U2 as a group is even aware about this screwup! F**K IT!

OK, but I was able to purchase Verified tickets to Harry Styles previously?

They need to be. It's embarrassing for them. I'm just so frustrated with all of this. I won't even get into the multiple calls to U2.com in the weeks leading up to this just to get set up properly. Now this. Just shaking my head in disbelief here

they tell actual fans they can't buy tickets because they didn't meet ticketmaster's ridiculous requirements, all in the name of stopping scalping..  yet are charging over $325 for half-decent seats and putting most of the good stuff in expensive VIP packages.  who is scalping who again?  and btw, congrats..  you didn't get tickets and now ticketmaster has your contact information for spamming you.
