  1. I don’t want the 2016 prints - message me if you can’t get them and we can sort something out. I’m in uk Still no 2017 here as yet...
  2. One of my ongoing criticisms when I see U2 live is how highly they regard their 'hit' material from ATYCLB and unfortunately this album appears to be influenced by that. I wish they'd go more rock or more blues rather than stick to the big 'pop' sound. Live I think this album could provide some cracking moments. Long term not sure It will rate high in their catalogue as a whole.
  3. With regards to Taylor Swift, she currently has tickets going on sale for Wembley stadium in London. There have been about half a dozen pre sales over the last few days with general sale tomorrow. Like with the u2 gigs they have tried pushing high priced tickets all the way to nose bleed. Also have tried selling premium packages for the impatient / wealthy fan. In some presales it has been obvious to see certain blocks available and that they have been releasing blocks from the back first. This is of course counter intuitive for fans although beneficial for the ticketing companies. The ticketmaster website is incredibly glitchy and the interface appears to change from one hour to the next and one presale to another. Really not a fan of the fluid price and the fluid ticket availability.
  4. Vinyl getting sent in December according to an automated response some have got recently from u2.com
  5. 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
  6. Big thanks to the those who wrote the letter on the fans behalf. It does sound like we're stuck with this system whether we like it or not - tragic
  7. I would check the setlists before you go and try to go nearest the stage where they play your favourite songs. The screens are also worth seeing for at least a few of the songs so may be worth changing position at some point
  8. Yes, If your account says 'verified subscriber' then the ticketmaster scalper check should have given you the all clear and you should be guaranteed a working presale code in a timely manner before any presale for your membership group is opened until you have used up your allocation (2 tickets) If 'verified subscriber' means something else we should know.
  9. Yes, they kick off with Heavenward in the regular shows. They've also done lots of instores and promotional gigs where they mixed things up a bit.
  10. I like your thinking. I've seen Wolf Alice 5 times in the last few months for less than £20 a show..
  11. The equipment is paid for already from the IE tour - if anything 3rd tour on 3 years should be cheaper. Many caausl fans will already have seen them in the last 2.
  12. No, it looks like fan club members had to reverify in order to be in another lottery. Like many fans posted in the unsuccessful in presale thread. No progress made.
  13. Was wondering why if ticketmaster know who the regular scalpers are why their u2 accounts get marked as verified , and their ticketmaster and u2 account remains active?
  14. Yes, and if you look at the setlist from mtv Trafalgar Square they appear to be going through the motions - it may be comforting for the band to play beautiful day, elevation ... but they have a ridiculous back catalogue they should be exploiting instead.
  15. Yes. It appears Greed prevails. The reality is there are still lots of performers well worth seeing and they don't charge ridiculous anounts to see them. Unfortunately if a band like U2 increasingly cash grab, whilst their bank balances improve other bands and performance artists may have a harder time selling tickets as music fans finances are squeezed.
  16. Yes, the mods are definitely top notch. Must have been incredibly stressful for them
  17. The band often plays multiple dates in the more popular cities - you will find it far easier to get GA for additional dates than the initial ones especially if they are sold first via pre sale. Also - if you try for a weekday show and it's not the first night at a venue queuing is likely to be easier in terms of getting a good spot. If all else fails worth remember they often release some more tickets about a week before a show.
  18. The 'verified fan' appears to nothing to do with preventing scalpers - it's all about making more money - TM grabbed phone numbers on top of data they already hold and can mine data for their benefit not ours. As has always been the case not all tickets are on sale at once. What a wonderful business model...
  19. The right to fair treatment / innocent until proven guilty seems to be a thing of the past. Being 'verified' is meaningless if you are later out of the cut due to an unsubstantiated / random reason. I got a code in the experience lottery yesterday but nevertheless find this whole thing paints a vulgar picture of what this band represent. Trully trumped off.
  20. This lottery system is very confusing - if several dates go on presale how do they know how many codes to give out for a nationwide tour ? Some dates/venues will be more popular than others ??
  21. I got an email saying we tried to send your access code to the mobile number provided during Verified Fan registration, and we ran into a text delivery issue ... About an hour later the text came through to my mobile
  22. To be fair to u2 , the stage setups they have come up with over the years have been very innovative and the arena setup for GA is particularly good. In terms of setlists I do have a bit of a worry after mtv Trafalgar Square - the new songs fit well with some of the songs many hardcore fans have been hoping would be retired from the set long ago. If the songs from Trafalgar Square plus the new album made up the lion share of the new sets It may be a tour I would sit out.
