    I honestly have no idea how I'm supposed to get tickets today.  I am in the iNNOCENCE group and the site says our presale starts in 1 hour and 45 minutes.  I haven't gotten any texts with any codes or links (double-checked my cell number on my profile page) and haven't gotten any emails regarding tickets either.

    The forum just directs me to http://www.u2.com/help and the phone number listed there is busy.

    Keith2.  I'm with you.  No nothing... very sad. (But not as sad as my daughter, she's upside down right now)


    I was with Keith too, but now I'm just with Veritas - no communication. This is beyond ridiculous. This company and this band have a lot of GD nerve.

    Before I call Fanfire about this, could somebody answer my question here? 

    As part of my 2016 membership, I bought 2 tickets in the presale for the first American leg of the JT tour, in December 2016. My membership expired in April 2017, and I had to let it lapse a few weeks while I waited to get paid. I resubscribed near the end of May 2017. I've gone through the verification steps and have the "setup complete" message on my account info page, but twice in the last week I've gotten an email saying I need to renew. I can't find any information verifying that on my account page. Others have said that renewal was part of their setup process and that they didn't get setup complete until they renewed.

    I contacted customer service via email and was told "Subscribers that purchased one of the 2017 JT membership offers AND have NOT used their Presale access code to purchase tickets to the JT tour will be eligible for access in the upcoming Presale."  I used my 2016 presale code but didn't buy any tickets through a presale since I renewed. 

    Do I need to renew? It's so immensely frustrating how vague and unclear the communication from U2.com has been about this. Thanks to anyone who can help.

    I'm in the almost exact situation as you are, except I didn't renew until the night before the tour announcement. I kept getting those emails too and I finally heard back from support and they said I was good to go for this presale. I did get put in the Innocence group, as I'm sure you did too if you had a lapse.

  3. I keep getting emails saying I'm not eligible for a presale code - my subscription did lapse this year but I renewed the night before the tour announcement. I did all the verification and my profile says I'm good.

    I've already paid and renewed. Why do they keep sending me emails that I'm not going to be eligible?


    Why does every presale have something dumb and easily avoidable happen?

    I saw Coldplay the first night they played last Summer.  There was a severe thunderstorm going into the venue.  No opening acts but Coldplay came on and played.  I was so happy and even starting to dry off a bit.  Then I felt a raindrop.  After they finished the song they were playing, Chris Martin said they had to leave and would come back out in an hour.  Nope.  Someone came out and whispered to him.  He then said, "I guess not.  We'll give them one more song.", and they played A Sky Full Of Stars.  Ironic.  Then he said, "That's it folks.  We're sorry.  Why is it raining?  I thought it was Summer right now.".  It was funny until I realized we got 2/3 of a show.

    It depends on lightning.  If it's a thunderstorm with decent lightning, they have to shut it down.  I was so bummed until I realized I could call TM and have them get me comps for the next night.  WRONG.  I argued for hours with TM as the show should not have taken place.  The line of storms moving in stretched over three states.  It never should have taken place but for dollar bills.  It poured for three hours.  The buses could not move.  Traffic stood still.  It was a mess.  Again, it's the promoter who makes the rules and leaves the dirty work to those at the venue.

    I was there for this too. The Soldier Field employees were rude, unaccommodating and were even swearing at people (!) to leave. Have a backup plan, just in case!

  5. I can't think of a reason why they'd do that, but you never know. It'd be more likely that they were spotted at someone else's concert on a off day. They don't "owe" Chicago a make-up show like LA.

  6. 1. It's not that far from downtown. I guess it depends on if you want to pay the $23 for parking and deal with traffic or not. Leaving the UC is kind of annoying if you don't pick the right lot.


    2. I've seen plenty of cabs but never had to take one.



    I actually got caught in the caravan in the last tour. We left as Moment of Surrender was starting and by the time we made it out of the lots, several black SUVs with police escorts were honking at us to get out of the way.


    would expect they will add an additional 3 nights to Chicago.

    The NHL may throw a monkey wrench into that though. Playoffs could go through late June and Hawks will be in contention for playoffs- maybe not finals- they may have to wait till playoff picture is better before United will open up days?


    They go through mid June. The first show isn't until the end of June. They are fine.
