Innocence presale group is a joke - NO GA or Red Zone

As far as I can tell, they did not release a single extra ticket for the 2nd presale group. I've been a fan club member for years, and only ended up in the Innocence group because I forgot to renew in time. I was lucky enough to get "verified" - though who cares when there is not a single GA or Red Zone ticket available for our presale group. So absurd. Seriously - did anyone in the Innocence group get GA or Red Zone? Such a farce! After demanding an extra $40 for a membership that is still active just to have the chance to participate in this presale. The whole way they're doing the sales this time around is bound to alienate tons of long term fans. Nicely done, U2. Thanks for nothing.

 

 

 

This is horsesh*t and a betrayal. Sad day for all U2 fans.  Some are gonna start calling the band ME2, as in me the band - it's all about $ for the band, for Guy Oseary, and their corporate partners.   millionaire club.   Fans are getting screwed so far. How has this new system limited scalpers and bots?   The real scalpers are Ticketmaster themselves and LiveNation. Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry - are you going to issue your own statement that us true fans get to hear, and not through your mouthpiece Guy?

Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry, you owe the fans a lengthy explanation.  Fans have given you EVERYTHING.   Yes, you gave us your awesome music, but without us, things would have been completely different.   It pains me to say all of this, so I hope you will explain and attempt to make genuine efforts to make ammends.......

Also, I'd love to 'like' more comments here in the forum, but I can't - the site says I've reached my limit of 3 likes for today.  Hmmm.... doesn't feel like freedom

I was able to get Red Zone for philly in the 2nd presale.  I couldn't believe it, so I snagged 4 of them.  If I can't find any local friends to buy them, I will offer them up for sale (but have to meet someone at the venue and walk in with them) because of the CC entry program.

we all had the same problem in the Experience group yesterday. 5 seconds into the sale and no GA or Red Zone were available...But! you could purchase some super expensive ones instead!.....Ticket Master held those GA tickets back to sell to scalpers.....It was in the bigger cities, like New York, DC and Vegas.

yes - does seem to be a ticketmaster scam so that they can resell all the GA tixs.  Plenty of them avail on stubhub and other sites

They will never admit this.  We probably agreed to it in the fine print too.

Did any get MSG 1 in Innocence presale?  

 

ALso, y my code was “invalid” on app.  I don’t want to go through this again for Philly 2 - my next GA goal.  Is there any way to determine if my code will work?  It’s unused. Thx!

I was part of the innocence group and tried for GA floor tickets for Las Vegas, the additional show in las vegas, then the additional shows in San Jose and LA that went on sale this morning.  I was logged in right at 10am, each time refreshing my browser and pasting in my code quickly.    No GA floor tickets ever came up!    I have pretty much made up my mind, after being on the floor inner circle at the U2 360 tour at the Rose Bowl, that the only way to see U2 shows is with GA floor tickets.    If I can't get these, then sadly, I see no point in spending $330 or more for reserved seats away from the stage.  I guess Love is all we have left.  No floor tickets.

I was able to get 2 GA floor tickets for San Jose in the Innocence group. I had two tabs open - the TM link from u2.com/tours and a TM link from a previous text. Both showed a different display of the TM site with different ways of finding tickets. One of them found GA floor seats and the other did not. .The first San Jose show had GA available at least a few days into the General sale (I didn't know I was going to be in SF around this time then), so I guess I'm a little surprised the second show wasn't easier for people.

I scored 2 GAs for San Jose (2nd show) and feel totally lucky. I clicked on the link from the email I got from U2.com.  This took me to TM's website where I entered my Innocence Group access code and unlocked the venue. I immediately selected 2 GAs and after a painfully long process of entering my payment info/shipping address/insurance/etc. I waited for grueling 20 - 30 seconds for the confirmation. It doesn't seem that long now, but I kept thinking that it was going to time out.

 I'd say it was easier for me, because I didn't get anything (no code/email/text) for the first show, even though I was a Verified Subscriber and Verified Fan.
