  5. My daughter was on an intern in Chicago a few years ago on innocence tour,after a full day n a late night after gig in united center,we went to pippans bar for a few late ones ,I had enough so at 2amish,we walked to get taxi back to my daughters place,walked around corner,front of Hyatt hotel was a man I knew to see from my hometown in Kildare,hows it goin I said what are you doing here,u2 security he said,at that moment he said wait there,n who walks out only larence,he was very good n chatted to me n my daughter for a good 20 minutes,no airs or graces,lots of photos also,I’ll keep an eye out
  6. Cheers man,I’ll have a go,sounds great,god be with the days🤗,Croke Park ‘87 was something special ,in that world in action documentary at the start “where streets ...myself n my buddy in the front bopping you can see clearly n another friend deceased a few year back also 👍,,so fast forward 32 years n Sydney a town I know so well,
  7. Just thinking I was actually living in Sydney when jtree was released, I was in oz 86 to 88,Sydney n Melbourne working,bought the cassette n remember heading back to house n 6 Irish lads listing,nothing like they done before brilliant 👍,so proud of being Irish,now my wife has twisted my arm n heading back to Sydney with hopefully a ticket in the next presale,I have 2 for Perth my nephew who lives there is coming,up in the air about collecter ticket I got on last presale, but you never know,here’s to next Thursday 🤞🤞
  8. Here’s hoping a second Sydney is announced,I can still use my presale code and won’t have to arrive ticketless,
  9. Haven’t heard anything from Ticketek,now I’ve read tickmaster only send to Australia address,nothing about that from Ticketek ,so I’m going with dispatch time which is 1 month before gig in Sydney,and if I arrive ticketless surely something can be done,I’m sure lots of people lost in the past??
  10. Asked all those questions just reply nothing they can do
  11. I have just been informed by Ticketek that there’s nothing they can do regarding collecter tickets delivery,I got 1 for Sydney 388 dollars ,I didn’t know they only deliver to aussie address,I’m traveling from Ireland a week before gig,ticketless 😢,they say it would take 10-15 days ,don’t think so it has taken up to 6 weeks or more for a letter to arrive to my nephew who lives over there,388 dollars down the swany ☹️☹️
  12. I know it November is a long way away,but just noticed collecter tickets will be dispatched a month before gig,I got two for myself n my nephew who lives in Sydney,I’m heading over from Ireland on the Wednesday before,now I sent a Christmas card last year from Ireland my nephew n his wife got it 6 weeks later☹️😒,Jesus a month??anyone ever come across this
