    I saw U2 for the first time in October 1989 in Sydney on the love town tour. I was still at school, had just started to drive, and lining up for 3 hours at the Jolimont Centre in Canberra to get tickets also saw me get my first ever parking ticket. In those days (before mobile phones) my sister had no way of telling if I would be successful to get tickets for us, so she went for telephone sales and we ended up with four tickets, two of which we passed onto a friend and her brother. All four of us had a road trip to Sydney and stayed in a hotel near Ultimo (where the Entertainment centre is). It was my first night out in Sydney - the atmosphere was electric – U2 cover bands in pubs (which I couldn't enter because I was underage) – just incredible. Next time I saw U2 was when I was living in the UK with my wife in 2001, and managed to get tickets for Paris, and soon after in Birmingham. For Paris, we made a holiday out of it. Arrived on Bastille day, got absolutely drenched in a downpour, Salvador Dali museum, and so many other great memories. At the concert, we asked some fellow Aussies in front of us to take a pic (35 mm film!). They kept hesitating because another Aussie behind us was photobombing us. They asked him to stop because they didn't want to waste our film and he just said “Nope!”. So our pic at that concert has some bloke behind us with a huge grin on his face (see below). For Birmingham, we drove from Southampton in our “new” second hand car – which decided to stop suddenly on the way. We were just stuck. Again – no mobile phone, no one would stop to help us….we were just stuck (along with an Italian colleague from work – who was not very happy about the situation). Eventually the car started again and we made it to the show while the opening act was still playing. We never figured out what went wrong with the car. In 2005, I was living in NZ and managed to get tickets for the March 17, 2006 show in Auckland for the Vertigo tour. The show sold out so quickly – there was a news story showing people crying because they missed out – so, I considered myself very lucky. My wife and I had been living apart for 15 months while I started a new job and she was due to join me on March 1 2006 - so the concert was going to be our first trip away from Wellington. That was the leg that was postponed due to The Edge’s daughter being sick. We hung onto our tickets ready for the rescheduled shows, and when they were announced we were unable to attend as it was a little more than a week out from the expected arrival of our first child. So, we were able to get a refund on the ticket and of course our disappointment didn’t last long at such an exciting time of our lives. Since then we have never been at a situation that would have allowed us to easily seen the band. So when the Singapore announcements came there was no question that my wife and I would want tickets, and my daughter, whose arrival nearly 13 years ago prevented us seeing the rescheduled show in NZ, will also come along (and of course her younger brother). I used up all my four presale allotments for Nov 30th show, and I will happily be competing for the Dec 1st show in the public sales as I have every other time I have seen the band. If luck is with me, my wife and I will get an extra show. If not, we move on with yet more happy memories and another story to tell. This time my kids’ wide eyed faces will be in the mix and I just can’t wait.

    Brendo 1704.. great story. Maybe the Aussie guy will recognise himself! That would be brilliant. Or should post it on the Australia page for the show.....’find the photobomb aussie’ 18 years later.....

    We try to do as much as we can when we can when situations arise; unfortunately this situation was very much out of our hands.

    The update is already on the FAQ in the HELP page: Singapore For Singapore: Up to four tickets at one single show for one-transaction due to differences in ticketing systems.

    I got a red zone ticket today. Just me - Mr Brunodog can go to raffles bar instead and have a Singapore sling and I’ll go on my own. Happy for it to be just us and the band too! Imagine that....

    Unknown at the moment... it's possible that it's similar as in North America/Europa/Latin America/etc and the number it's merely a form of # control for the ticketing agencies; but it's possible that it's similar to K-POP Shows in Korea and shows in Japan, in which - if you are going standing - the spot you select will determine your order of entry into the venue... We will need to wait for more information about this...
