Am I The Only Person that benefited from the Verified Fan rules??

Recommended Posts

It worked for me, but definitely gave me a heart attack along the way.  The promised email the night before came late, and while the code and link arrived via text before the tickets went onsale, they did arrive later than the time previously promised.  I realize given how many people had it much, much worse that these are petty issues to raise by comparison, but it was definitely a little more nerve wracking than in previous years.  I think my biggest fear was just that if something went wrong with the code, there'd be no time to actually get it looked at before the tickets were gone.  In years past, the info was posted to your profile in the days before the sale so if something didn't seem right, there was ample time to deal with it.

When it came time to actually using the code, my experience was very similar to the 2015 sale - when I first searched GA at 10:00am, it showed that there were no tickets available matching the selection I made, but after about ten minutes of searching again and again, it finally pulled them up - that's pretty much exactly what happened with me in 2015 as well.  I wonder if it just takes a few minutes for all of the sections to get "turned on" when the onsale happens.

I honestly feel bad that it was relatively easy for me in the end, while others who have been a member just as long had issues.  In the past it seems like we all had a much more similar experience, whether good or bad.

Yeah, worked great for me and a friend from work.

I was in experience group and everything worked as advertised.  Wanted RZ, got RZ.    Friend was in innocence.   She wanted a seat, got a seat. 

Texts/Emails arrived as advertised.  Good news for us but wow, reading all the issues.  

This is the 4th or 5th show purchased with FC Presale.. more hoops to jump through but worked for us..

I was fortunate enough to score lottery tickets for SoB (phenomenal show!).

Congratulations!!! I'm still getting my daily rejection email. Been entering every day since it started. Glad to hear someone is actually winning it!

And yes, I got lucky for U2 presales, too. Got my Experience group code, and 4 of the 5 cities I registered for Citi presale. Fortunately, I used my fan club code for the one I didn't get. Really hoping we won't have to go through this all over again for added shows and Europe.

You're not the only one, I think for a lot of people it worked out fine, they're just not posting as much that it worked out.  I too just got my tickets are printed email from TM.

I got one GA for LA in the Experience presale (I'm saving the second code for an added show, so hopefully it will work) and 2 Red Zone for Vegas in the Citi presale.  That said, I was very lucky and it was a nightmare.  I had issues with the Ticketmaster site and app for the LA show, and with AXS for Vegas.  I lost tickets out of the cart, had loading issues, etc.  Again, I;m very lucky.  That said, I only know one other fan who was able to get tickets, most were not.  Hopefully more shows will get added and long time fans who were locked out will get in.

It worked more or less fine for me, too. I got 1 GA for Boston with no issues at all, and while it took about 20 minutes of trying and re-trying, since only seats were coming up at first, I got 1 GA for NYC! :)

Did you guys have problems getting tickets as experience, red hill, legacy, etc (1st presale window) subscribers in the past?  I never once had a problem getting good seats or GAs for the show I want, being in the first group.  Of course, up until this presale, when I received my bullshit retraction email, and then received my Experience code after all the Innocence presales had begun.  I also believe it was probably easier for you guys getting tickets this year with so many Experience members being wrongly denied their presale access (less competition).

I have never let my membership laps so I've always been in the first pre-sale group, and this was the first time I ever scored a GA to Boston Garden in a pre-sale.  I never was able to in every other past pre-sale.  Again, I feel for all of you who had things go wrong. This was an unusual experience for me.
