There was also a targeted email to Sirius subscribers ‘in the area’. ( the fine print was 3.2 million) You had to respond and enter. No transport, just 25 pairs of tickets given away. This one is in addition to the ones above. It ended 5/30. 

The was the fine print on the bottom of my SiriusXM subscriber email to enter. They said 10.5 million. :( From the sound of it there seemed to have been several email broadcasts to millions of subscribers. It says "in the new york area" here but I am in Colorado. Clearly not anywhere near new york, but I would be if I had a ticket ;)

" *ODDS: This exclusive opportunity for this block of tickets is being promoted by only one email broadcast to approximately 10,545,000 subscribers in the New York area. Odds of winning depend upon the number of entries received in response to this email by the end of the Entry Period. If you are a winner, your RSVP will be confirmed and you will be sent a follow-up email with exact event details. "

That’s encouraging to hear there was a winner via the app - I’ve been so frustrated by the lag, as it would seem impossible to win if not listening in the car. I literally had a baby monitor on my car radio this morning, I’m nuts. ?‍♀️

 

The baby monitor move is so smart that U2.com should give you a pair of tkts

That's actually genius! LOL! I love it. If I had one I would totally do the same!

From what I understand the person who won via the app did so on the first day of the broadcast and was either the 1st or 2nd winner in this promotion. I didn't even know there was a contest until Sunday. I hadn't heard the ad up until that point. I think many people were unaware and therefore the mass of people were not calling in at that moment, which is why the 2 min 38 second lag in the app probably wasn't that much of an issue. I absolutely think it's an issue now. Within 3 seconds of the first note of AOH coming on the app earlier today my phone was ringing and the contest was over. I was told by Sirius that if I wanted to win I should have bought a satellite radio receiver for my home. Oh...okay...let me get on that.

Oh dang, that makes sense then. Unfortunately the monitor solution is not sustainable since if I drain my battery I’ll have bigger problems! Will hope for some luck but even when I’ve caught it live I can’t get through.

just did some math for those of you interested... these are the contest tickets by the numbers so far:

1 pair = Grand Prize

25 pairs = U2.com song request 

16 pairs = AOH 10th caller promo (they played it at 6:45am EST yesterday and again in the afternoon, so they are playing 2 times/day) (ends June 8th)

25 pairs = Facebook/Twitter photo contest, ends 5pm today (not sure if eastern or pacific time zone)

These equal 134 tickets, which is less than 10% of the total tickets available (1500). Maybe there will be another 25 pair contest tomorrow (eternal optimist). Maybe they'll get up to 500 for actual fans (super eternal optimist). 

Congrats to all who have won! Best of Luck to the rest of us! 

And, apparently, SiriusXM had an employee lottery. Don't know how many tickets that was. 

At this point, I'm just so disheartened, but happy to see some reports of true fans winning tickets.

I’m still curious if the lucky winners are spread across the country or on the east coast. I’ve been listening on all devices but a home receiver since the broadcast started. I’ve barely slept since Friday. I’ve only heard the song in the morning (7-9am CST) and in the afternoon (4-7pm CST). I have never heard it during the overnight hours. I’m happy for all those that have won so far. But I’m like the rest of the fans here still hanging onto hope of a ticket! Congratulations to you all! And good luck to the rest!
