  1. I'm going to have to pass this year, sadly. I will miss seeing all your amazing cards in my mail each day. Family health crisis is taking my attention this year. I want to wish everyone a wonderful holidays this year. Remember to take a ton of pictures with your loved ones and cherish your memories.
  2. I don't know what the heck they're doing over there at Ticketmaster / Live Nation but they're definitely being very shady.
  3. I am thinking that the more casual fans not necessarily following the news about the verified fan process were unaware of the deadline for registering by Saturday for the public on sale today. Therefore they were unable to buy tickets and that's why there are so many unpurchased tickets right now. But now those people have been on the Ticketmaster site and have seen that there is a requirement to register for the next round of public on sale dates, they will do that and more people will purchase tickets. That's my theory.
  4. I think it would be really weird if they didn't add more shows. During Vertigo tour I think they didn't announce the additional dates until a week after the first public on sale was completed. I think that's how it happened. It was several tours ago but that's how I remember it.
  5. I don't think Guy wants to know what I truly think of him.
  6. I can't imagine they would mark someone inelligible for perpetuity making them unable to buy any tickets for any shows ever again in the future. That would be literally the stupidest thing ever because Ticketmaster would lose millions of dollars! I can totally see your point but the thought of them doing that is literally the worst thing that could happen to people who go to a lot of concerts!
  7. Regardless of whether you're Experience or Innocence presale group, due to the newly instituted Verified Fan lottery, you're not guaranteed to get a pre-sale code. I didn't realize this was the case. I was under the impression that all subscribers who followed the steps to renew their subs and link their TM account would get presale access. That is not true. The fact is that if you're not picked by Ticketmaster to get a code, you will not get a code. Period. That goes for both the Citi presale and the Public onsale too. Every ticket for every show across the board for this tour will be sold using this verified fan lottery. That is what I have been told by the customer service people for U2.com. Their number is (855) 867-5297.
  8. I would've rather not gotten any emails from them than to have them send me one saying I was picked only to get another one soon after saying they made a mistake and that I wasn't going to get a code after all. That's the part that hurts the most in my opinion.
  9. Please let us know what they tell you on the phone. Because the guy I talked to said, as a result of adding the verified fan to the presale access, that means not everyone is getting a presale code. And if you either didn't get the email or if you got the one saying they made a mistake that you're shut out, then you're not getting a code. This supposed lottery has caused a large number of actual fans to get shut out from getting a presale code.
  10. Not everyone in the Innocence group will be getting codes either. Only the people picked by whatever nonsense system that Ticketmaster has made up are getting presale access. Everyone else is not getting anything.
  11. I just got off the phone with the U2.com customer service. I can't believe this is actually true but apparently they did in fact use the BS verified fan lottery for presale tickets for fan club members. Those of us who first got the email saying you were getting a presale code and then later got the email saying they made a mistake and you're not getting a code - we are in fact shut out of the presale and will not be getting a code. The verified fan thing means that there's some arbitrary method by which you're picked - or not - to get presale access this time for this tour. So, we're not getting presale access at all. It's over.
  12. I don't think that's accurate. I'm pretty sure all fan club members who completed the verified fan process on u2.com will get presale codes on the day of their group. It's the Citi presale and the Public onsale where the lottery part comes in. I think the wording you posted up there refers to the fact that, just because you get a presale code doesn't guarantee you'll get tickets. Because that's something that people always assume who don't know the drill. They think presale access guarantees they'll get tickets. Maybe for a crappy band with few fans. But U2 is the biggest band on the planet with more fans worldwide than any other band in the world. So you're up against a lot of people in both presale and public sale. Which makes it harder to get tickets overall.
  13. Those aren't real tickets. They're fake and people who buy from any of those sites are going to find themselves with no tickets and no refunds. It's all BS. I wouldn't spend too much time worrying about them.
  14. That is my understanding as well. It's the public on sale that will be very different this time. And from what I've been reading, the Citi card presale will be like the public on sale with the lottery draw thingy. If we're misunderstanding then I'm sure a mod will correct what we're saying.
  15. Based on what I've read here, I'm sure the random draw only applies to the Citi presale and the General on sale. But those of us who are subscribers to the fan club will all get presale codes. If the random lottery thing applies to the fan club member presale too, I hope the mods can clarify, but as for now I'm pretty sure it only applies to the public sale and the Citi presale. The difference in the public on sale of tickets this time is that anyone who wants to participate in the general on sale has to do the verified fan registration and register for the specific show(s) that they want to try for. And then on the day tickets go on sale, IF they are lucky and get picked by Ticketmaster, then they will get a code to buy tickets. But there's no guarantee during the public on sale that someone will get picked to get a code.
  16. You're better off calling them for a response. They don't seem to respond well to emails. That being said, I was told when I called yesterday about all of my missing merch that I purchased over a month ago that pretty much all of the Joshua Tree items available for sale sold out as fast as a U2 concert on presale day. So everything JT related is on back order for who knows how long because they haven't been able to keep up with the demand.
  17. I called them a couple of days ago because I have multiple items on backorder. They told me that pretty much ALL JT2017 merchandise is on backorder and no date yet for when my sub gift will be mailed. Note also that they will ship (and therefore charge) items as they become available so don't expect to get multiple items in a single shipment. And don't be surprised to have multiple charges on your credit card. Believe me I've been through this last tour when they shipped and charged one to two items at a time of my 8 item order. I also found out that if you call the main Live Nation merchandise customer service, they also can look up your orders by order number. So, in case you can't get a hold of the U2.com service, the main Live Nation people have access to the same order numbers. Make sure you have your order numbers before you call though. Their number is 1-800-767-7160 from 6am to 9pm Pacific Time.
  18. I saw on FB that all purses/bags must be smaller than 12x12x12, but don't have to be clear. Furthermore, Soldier Field is encouraging people to bring the smallest possible purse if it's not a clear type.
  19. Thanks to the mods for keeping up with the streams! I hope someone creates the pre-show playlist this time like they did for the IE Tour because I heard a lot of great songs in the pre-show mix this time. I think I heard The Pogues!
  20. Unfortunately, ASCO is the largest oncology conference in North America and people come from all over the world to attend, which is why so many of the hotels in the city are sold out. I found the map of hotels that are being used by ASCO attendees and I'm attaching it to my post so people can see which hotels will not be available. 2017-ASCO-Annual-Meeting-Chicago-Hotel-Map.pdf
  21. I got my tickets, close to the stage. However, if Ticketmaster flips the stage configuration again like they have for the last 2 tours and I find out that I'm on the opposite side of the field from the stage due to another bait and switch by them.....
