  1. MacPhisto was Zoo TV (i.e. Achtung Baby and Zooropa). He's not appropriate for The Joshua Tree.
  2. Here's my best guess. Band typically plays between 24 - 26 songs. The Joshua Tree will take 11 slots. Edge doesn't think they will open with Streets, but they will play the entire album in order. I think they will go for some deeper and darker cuts that "go with the times we are in". They'll also stay away from some cuts that will be in the second run of the I&E Tour. Setlist: Desire VertIgo God Part II Seconds Where the Streets Have No Name I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For With or Without You Bullet the Blue Sky Running to Stand Still Red Hill Mining Town In God's Country Trip Through Your Wires One Tree Hill Exit Mothers of the Disappeared (Wild Applause) City of Blinding Lights A Sort of Homecoming Out of Control Pride (In the Name of Love) Beautiful Day Encore: Acrobat ("don't let the bastards get you down") One Bad 40 There are some substitutions that can be made to the set, mostly older material that reflects how they feel we've come full circle. So, not a lot from No Line or SOI. Looking forward to seeing them at Gillette in Boston in June. Have my GA tickets. I am disappointed that it's not the I&E Tour Round 2, supporting SOE. I think they're excuse is complete BS, and they're cowards for not releasing SOE as promised. But c'est la vie. U2 in concert on a bad night is better than most of the crap we're fed by lazy labels, promoters and radio stations.
  3. Ticketmaster has a big problem. I've got through for tix, only to be thrown out when completing the purchase! Has happened more than once...
  4. Mike, thanks for the post and the advice. No probs - you get some in the end? Yes, 2 GA Boston Night 1. Used the mobile app and had them in 5 min...
  5. Ah...yes. This could be like ZooTV, where they start with 6 or 7 from Somgs of Innocence, then dig into thei catalog, with encores from Songs of Experience... Oh... And please finally play Acrobat. We can dream out loud!
  6. Family of 4. All fans who want to go...together. U2 has been around for over 30 years. Us young kids now have families and like to share the Experience. Also, the last 2 indoor tours had a 4 tix limit. Imagine our surprise. It will be tough to bring the whole family...
  7. Took me 1.5hrs, getting booted off Ticketmaster over 10x with tickets in hand on the website. Got a tip to use the TM App on my phone, and had 2 GA tix to Boston 1 in less than 5 minutes. Can't stand that we could only get 2 tix for a show. Last 2 indoor tours it was a 4 tix limit. With the number of shows that U2 is probably going to add during the general sale, limiting us to 2 tix was not necessary.
  8. I agree. If we can merge the threads, we can show the scope of the discontent.
  9. Mark, well said. I agree that Bigwave is very helpful, as are all who look after the forums. My dealings with them have always positive, which is why I started this thread. I hope the feedback from multiple fans, not just one grump...me...will spur the U2 team into positive action. Maybe address your message to U2.com/ticket master then rather than one guy who is working his backside off helping people out Mike, you make my point. Bigwave helps us out and will take this info back to the people who can do something...I hope... TM would tell us to go bang... Where should we be giving feedback?
  10. Mike, sorry, not missing the mark, but addressing someone who can make a difference for us.
  11. Mark, well said. I agree that Bigwave is very helpful, as are all who look after the forums. My dealings with them have always positive, which is why I started this thread. I hope the feedback from multiple fans, not just one grump...me...will spur the U2 team into positive action.
  12. Maybe we should call it TMS - Ticketmaster S#%$
  13. Sigma957, wait a bit or try the TM App on your phone. It me 1.5 hrs to get GA tix to Boston 1, but they were available. I was never able to get through on my computer, but cruised through in less than 5 mins on my phone.
  14. cth71, Thank you for the advice. Mobile App Worked! ...and fast. 2 GA Tix to Boston 1. Computer still does not work...
  15. Just had 2 GA Tix to Boston 2...again not able to complete the transaction...
  16. JCF, U2 has some responsibility. Their team is part of the negotiations for the pre-sale. They need to be accountable for these problems for their fan club members.
  17. Bigwave, great. How does that help if the tix are gone? Did enough GA go on sale?
  18. This is an open message to Bigwave and hopefully to U2. There have been a number of problems with the pre-sale for Experience members (many, like myself, from the Propaganda days). Our issues are: - Presale codes that did not work - Tickets queued on Ticketmaster, then being thrown off - Not enough tickets available for the group - A 2 ticket limit (when in the past it was 4) U2 Fan Club members are told that they have access to tickets before the General Public. That has not happened this time for you Experience members. I would like to let you and the band know how dissatisfied I am and would appreciate the band taking some corrective action for this group prior to the sale to the General Public. Anyone who agrees, please add a post.
  19. Had GA Tix queued up 3x for Boston 1 & 2 and got booted by Ticketmaster. This is as bad as the Vertigo presale debacle. U2 needs to do something for it's longtime fans. That's what we are in the Experience Group? Aren't we? And we're getting screwed over? Really U2? That's the way you want to treat us? I got nothing today and the fan club says we get access to tickets before the general public. That ain't happening and that's false advertising. U2 take notice. You'll have a pissed off fan base.
