  1. Thanks a lot so mine should come in approximately 5 days if my email was dated 4th 🤞
  2. What was the date of your despatch email?
  3. Same but mine was ‘posted’ fourth of November! So perhaps the more important question is - has anyone on here in the UK got the CD and if so when was the email notification of posting sent? That will give us an idea of rough delivery time hopefully ....
  4. WHERE are we supposed to be checking this please?
  5. Rip the CD then....jeez just wish i had mine.....or the despatch email even....
  6. Are you in Cork ie is this the first EU email
  7. Presumably you have multiple ways of playing MP3?
  8. Astonished that people would rather have plastic ‘bird scarers’ than quality vinyl plus download...really hoping U2 also produce a limited vinyl version to buy through u2.com shop rather than just cheapo CDs...
  9. Hi All fellow U2 fans, Call it misguided, middle aged crisis (I'm 48), or call it positive, healthy and community spirited…but I am running the Brighton marathon – my first marathon – on Sunday 15th April 2018, you can read more here: https://www.oxfordpreservation.org.uk/news/support-mark-taylor-he-runs-brighton-marathon-opt If you are ever in Oxford, here are some of the beautiful natural places that you can visit, and which I help to conserve by volunteering at the weekends: https://www.oxfordpreservation.org.uk/content/land Thank you. All the best, Mark Taylor.
  10. It’s all Ticketmaster and their own resale sites. Coupled with touts being allowed to buy instant memberships. Not real fans at all.
  11. Got this re GA today: You should receive your order in the next 2 working days! ?
  12. I agree with all of this except the fan club members selling into resale - I think that part is minimal if not non existent. I think the ‘primary agents’ have sold inventory directly into (their own) secondary, which makes them even worse!...
  13. Maybe they're (meanIng the senders) putting the items on discogs - secondary sales - like they do with tickets LOL....
  14. 100% correct. Ticketmaster and Livenation (and U2) should be taking a LONG HARD LOOK at process and correcting it for next time. NOT blaming their 'greedy' fans!....Totally agree making the process complex and/or weakly protected is THEIR responsiblility not the fans, and should not be used as an excuse (or deliberate means) to make more tickets available for resale, platinum or verified - cons of their own design.
  15. That’s what I was thinking. I’m sure on previous tours the codes got ‘struck through’ or deleted from user profiles/tour pages once they had been used, and that you couldn’t physically re enter them (technically impossible) in subsequent presales. Has anyone who has used their code notice any of the above measures this time?
  16. Mine came from: no-reply@livenationmerchandise.com don’t know if that is consistent across all retail sales but the email does say plural: ie‘with participating retailers’
  17. Thanks a lot Max. That’s weird as the original email from my album preorder says that it expired at the end of the first presale. But, as others are saying, the original preorder presale email now links through to the Ticketmaster links for Dublin ‘retail presales’ - I was worried there may be some local Irish Shop retail presale that I wasn’t aware of. Fingers crossed you are right.
  18. Max, is the ‘retail code’ the one originally sent via u2.com album preorders as I haven’t used mine yet? Should I get a new email about that or use the original code I was sent for buying the album?
  19. Just remember though at O2 they usually take your tickets from you! I didn’t get a ticket souvenir at Depeche Mode as a result! We learned the following week for The Killers to ask at which door they return tickets after the show and got lucky! They only return tickets on one exit, so ask as you go in which!
  20. Who knows if it is deliberate, or accidental. Crap either way. I'm getting two for London (GA I hope), would swap one for Manc (GA).
  21. You're right they moved the goalposts and changed FAQs earlier....
