  1. Important note about Twitter - as far as I understand, everyone can get the "verified" checkbox. You have to be extra careful there.
  2. And Beautiful Day, WOWY. Some are overplayed (One, Pride, WOWY), some just aren't played very well any more (Elevation, Beautiful Day) so they all lose the effect they used to have. I wouldn't mind they were interchanged with other songs during shows. So they're more rarer now....
  3. Doesn't mean anything. Every artist says that every time.
  4. What have done all the fans from the countries where U2 have never been to? Why do I have to travel abroad every single time I want to see U2 live? Sometimes they come to Scotland, sometime they don't.
  5. U2 and their management should prohibit resale of tickets.
  6. I have a subscription - Experience. And my girlfriend bought one for herself too - Innocence. We used both pre-sale codes under my TicketMaster NL account and under my credit card.
  7. Yeah, depends on airlines - 6-9 months seems to be the norm. Also, look into sites like Google Flights or ITA Matrix. While you can't buy tickets from them directly, they are great search services to find cheaper tickets without having to go thru each airline site.
  8. Keep trying. From experience, even in general sale tickets can pop-up again. I scored 4 GAs in general sale for I+E tour an hour after a show had "sold out". Don't lose hope.
  9. I'll have to disagree. As someone who hasn't let their subscription lapse for 10+ years without missing a day, who was a subscriber on the previous site version from Vertigo tour days, I think that the moment you let is lapse, you lose your seniority. There really isn't a change for this tour compared to I+E and TJT tours. Anyone who was a paid member at a certain cut-off date was put in the first presale group; anyone who joined after - 2nd group. It was really similar to the current model even during 360 tour. Anyone who was a paid member at a certain cut-off date was in firs
  10. I don't know how to play any instrument except air-guitar. And I'm not a girl. And I don't dance. It's not fair to people like me who have definite and absolute 0 chance of getting onto stage with the band. Unless I jump the rail and barge onto stage uninvited. NOT FAIR! It's unaccountable from U2 to ignore fans like me.
  11. I work at an IT service-desk and get the same computer-illiterate people calling every day about the same problems. They don't remember their password from 15 minutes ago, they don't know where Start is, they don't know how to made text bold in Word, they don't know how to do IT stuff that's mandatory for their work, they don't know how to read. While most are nice people, it's very frustrating and boring to explain the same trivial thing over and over again, while I could be more useful helping people with actual IT problems. But none of that comes remotely close to the frustration I g
  12. For Amsterdam I had the options to have e-ticket PDF and various shipping options. Shipping to Latvia was something like 15E, which was less then I paid for Helsinki and Frankfurt for 360.
  13. To be fair, if they COULD do a I+E setup in stadiums, it would be 360* levels of awesome. Imagine, a humongous screen stretching across stadium, with a stage in dead centre. And with sections of the screen moving up and down as needed.
  14. Looks like a mockup. I can't make out Amsterdam, Oct 7th. It seems to be taken by.... Barcelona? But an ingenious approach!
  15. I liked how it was done for 360 tour. There were 3 or 4 tiers. Old timers, so to speak, who were paid members at a certain cut off date. Then it was people who had subbed after the cut off date and before tour announcement, and then noobs who had subscribed after tour announcement. Allowed to spread all fans around a bit better. Personally, as someone who subscribes every year, tour or no tour, I would love a separate presale for people like me. But as anything, that would piss off a lot of people. No matter what U2 do, they'll piss of lots of people.
  16. I had similar experience during IE tour for Berlin general sale. Tickets were sold out within a few minutes. But checking back over and over again I managed to get what I needed 1 hour later.
  17. Same applies for a bunch of other countries within Europe. Countries which have fans just as devoted as Scots. Countries which have never been visited by U2.
  18. Yeah, just by looking at dates all cities have 2nd show scheduled. Some, like Paris, even 4. They seem to go for the same schedule as last time around: 2 concerts, then 2 days off, then again 2 concerts, 2 days off. Unless any of the shows underperform in the first sale (highly doubt, considering the small amount of concerts), every city will get a 2nd show.
