  1. This is how it went for 360 tour. That's how it likely will be again. People who keep their membership active and don't let it expire will be fine. People who forget or ignore the expiration date are the ones who are running into problems this time around and who should write themselves notes to keep an eye on it so they renew in time next time.
  2. I sent mine yesterday! Hoping the cards for those outside the USA will arrive in time.
  3. The presale offer can't possibly account for every possible family scenario. It would be impossible to cover all the possible family combinations that exist among the world of people who want to attend U2 concerts. Additionally, they were likely hoping to pull in a lot of new fans because they just offered their newest album for free, which ultimately led to allowing only 2 tickets for presale instead of 4 to allow a larger number of subscribers (both old and new) to have a shot at tickets. They have to be welcoming to new fans, because it's not all about us dinosours who have been listening
  4. Set a note on your calendar or on your phone or something to check back the week that you're supposed to renew on a yearly basis and you'll never forget again. What good is modern technology if you're not using it?
  5. Thia isnt 2003 any more and online sales ain't new... A company the size of Ticketmaster should be prepared for huge sales loke this. If their IT infrastucture is from this century, they should be able yo easy scale their operations to accomadate the extra load. 100% agreed!! But, Ticketmaster won't pay for the upgrade. I think that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt how messed up their priorities are, business wise.
  6. I agree that something needs to change but I'm totally at a loss for what can be done. In talking about the politicians, they have other priorities that have larger groups of lobbyists in their ear on a daily basis, so something like the price of concert tickets and/or the criminality of Ticketmaster and their shady as hell business practices doesn't rate high on their radar. And it likely never will. Even if big name musicians went in to testify in front of congress, I don't think politicos see it as an important issue, given how so many other issues take priority. Like it or not, concerts ar
  7. I don't know where people are getting the idea of acoustic one night and electric the next. It must be a rumor started by one person with no basis in any kind of known fact nor even a hint that it would be the case. So I think people need to quit worrying so much about that. I doubt that they would set up this way and I've found no evidence to think it would be set up like this. In any case, I don't think it makes any difference because they will release a concert DVD after the tour ends like they always do and I'm sure it will include everything that is different since they film more than
  8. This is how it always goes for any Ticketmaster presale, general on sale, sales of any kind. Because Ticketmaster servers cannot manage the overwhelming response for big name acts like U2. This literally happens every time. It's very annoying and totally lame but there isn't anything we can do about it, except keep trying to get through, unfortunately.
  9. I used to have a yahoo email on here years ago and the emails weren't getting through from U2.com half the time. I switched to a gmail account and have not missed a message since then. My recommendation to anyone using yahoo email is to get a gmail address because I know from personal experience that Yahoo email has ongoing issues with delivering email from here for some reason.
  10. At the end of the day, U2 and U2.com have no control over the Ticketmaster website and its many shortcomings and failures. They don't own them, they don't maintain their system servers and they have no control over upgrading the system since it's obviously a pile of shit. Unfortunately since Ticketmaster is the only ticket seller in town, they have U2 and every other artist, sports team, and live event by the balls and they know it. Ticketmaster doesn't care how long people have been fans of any event for whom they sell tickets. They don't care how long a person has been in a fan club or how m
  11. Don't just lay down and give up. If that happened to me I'd be calling them until I got through to a live person while also sending emails to them every hour on the hour asking them what happened.
  12. What exactly did the email say was the reason for cancelling? Was it a problem with your credit card possibly?
  13. It has always been $50 for a new membership and $40 to resubscribe for as long as I can remember. If you renew anytime before your prior membership expires it will always be $40. But if you renew any time after your previous membership expired already (meaning any date past the date that is your expiration date), it will be treated as a new membership because you were no longer an active member since it was already expired before you resubbed. The difference is in your current member status when resubbing. There are a lot of people who don't come back to the site when there's no tour happe
  14. Don't be upset. You saw the shenanigans that occurred today due to Ticketmaster overload with 4 presales for big ticket bands going on at the same time (idiots!). I have a strong suspicion that those who are in the second group will have a lot fewer problems and will have a much easier time getting through the buying process. In other words, you're getting the better deal than the first group cause you're not going to have all the problems we did today. You should be really happy about that!!
  15. Everyone who had problems this morning should go and try again right now. The other presales for Foo Fighters and One Direction are long over so you should try again and see if you can get through this time.
  16. This. It's this, nothing to do with U2. It happens for every presale and many general public sales for the majority of artists who go on tour. Everyone who has more than 10 fans will have this problem when their tix go on sale. If you are going to blame anyone blame Ticketmaster for being so utterly and completely incompetent every single bloody time there's any kind of ticket sale. They have sucked since the dawn of time and they keep getting worse. Nothing we can do because they don't give a shit about us paying them. They also don't give a shit that fans are blaming the bands for this bu
  17. It's not U2's fault, it's Ticketmaster. They are literally the devil. I'm not even kidding. This happens every time tickets go on presale, there's always an issue with their servers because, despite charging outrageous fees over and above the ticket price, they still can't manage to pay to upgrade their paltry servers that have never managed to handle the customer demand for a high volume group like U2, or frankly even a medium volume group. But unfortunately they're the only ticket provider in town, so to speak (at least in the US). So they get their way every time, which I think is disgus
  18. What kind of swag did you get from the Red Zone in previous tours, anyone? I'm curious to know what kind of stuff they give out.
  19. That's everyone's strategy so I'd say you're in the same boat as everyone else.
  20. No one anywhere has their code yet, it's not just you.
  21. No one anywhere has their code yet, so nothing to worry about.
  22. But that only shows the most recent renewal. What if your membership expired in say October and you renewed on time. Then you'd be showing you renewed in October but should be in the first group, so they can't be going by that date.I guess we'll all know when the emails eventually get sent out. That would be fine because you know you were still an active member when Songs of Innocence came out. But anyone who was not an active member between Sept 9 til today will be in the second group. That's what it says in the FAQ.
  23. With a two ticket limit per member and the restriction of the person who bought the ticket needing to be there to get in, I highly doubt you'll have trouble getting decent seats. I doubt they'll be subpar. I don't think you should worry.
  24. I don't think it's the date on your Zootopia profile. I think it's based on the date you renewed your subscription. Which, as I said in my post above is located on the Account Info page not the profile page.
  25. Go to the main U2.com page (not the Zootopia page) and click your name in the upper right corner to find Account Info. It will show you when your subscription expires. If you subscribed after Sept 9 2014 then you'll be in the second group. From the FAQ page: Q - How do I know what pre-sale priority group I am? A - There are two groups of subscribers taking part in the pre-sale and the email you receive with your pre-sale code indicates which group you are in. Our 'EXPERIENCE' group of longtime subscribers (those who were current, paid-up subscribers on 09/09/2014) have access fr
