I have a Propaganda issue directly mailed to me from U2's Principle Management office, That says it all about how long I have been devoted to the greatest band ever and to my musical fathers. My favorite tour of all time is Zoo TV and its Zooropa edition. Seeing it in Verona, Italy in 1993, with Pearl Jam opening, has completely blown me away. U2 was my spiritual and emotional home ever since.

Sadly, last week has brought an extreme disappointment and heart break. SoE Tour 2018 presale has left me with feeling of being used by mercenaries. How else would you explain renewing U2.com subscription, getting an Innocence code (why not Experience?) and being offered 2 tickets at $730 as the only option?

My life has been crocheted with U2's music, its message, the way it touched me, the way it moved me, healed me, got me through some tough times, made me win my beautiful wife, opened my horizons and my heart. .I will always cherish it but I cannot nurture this relationship when feeling cheated and mistrusted. 

Please prove me wrong. Until then, I will #Boycott2018SoETour and all other U2 live and studio events.

So the mere fact that you didn't get the exact tickets you wanted is enough to make you turn your back on the band that you claim is so important to your life?  I guess you weren't really that big of a fan.  

Yeah... I can never turn my back on them.  "Die-hard" as they say.  I have nothing negative to say about U2 but they ticket process, yes....:wacko: The situation is not life or death, but disappointing for so many people. I have no answers on making this process better or easier.

I think the idea is like if you were married for 30 years and that person was important in your life - and they hurt you...then well you would probably consider "boycotting" them.  You would still be a big fan...but willing to boycott.

Of course .... I wouldn't necessarily put U2 at the same level as my wife (in case she reads post ;))...

yeah got to watch out for having even a day or two lapse in paying the shake down money or a 20 year subscriber could get relegated back to the status of a guy who joined for the first time last week. that hasn't happened to me but i watch out for expiration date. 

 i wish it was like college football. the more money you have given over time to the athletic association, the more and better tickets you get. that is what i like about and admire about scalpers. they have product and they get you what you want and need. a thousand years of U2.com dues and it always the same. anxiety on pre-sale day.

A lot of long-time fans joined U2.com in 2009...what did you do in 2005?

No , the website started in 2005 but many memberships are marked as starting in 2009 even though they didn't lapse. 

This is certainly the case for me. 

I think they gave a lot of us 3 extra months membership and the start date on the accounts links to around renewal date at time

Yes, I’ve subscribed since mail in propaganda ticket days and have my metal U2 fan club ID card on a chain from 2005 (which was also a mess for presales) and my account here says 2009.  I never lapsed, it’s something to do with the website.
