  1. Porterhouse sounds great to start......just checked on Google Maps, exactly a 2 min walk from where we’re staying. Count us in !!!!!
  2. Landing into Sydney on Sunday 17th, four of us flying out from the UK.... We’ll definitely be up for pre show beers on both Friday and Saturday... On another note, I’ve emailed Elevation Australia (Sydney based U2 tribute) to see if they have anything planned on the lead up to the gigs, that would be quite cool. I read elsewhere that there was a Sydney Harbour Cruise with a U2 theme, but that it had sold out ? I can’t find any more information than that - it was mentioned on U2Songs. Anyway, I’ll post into the thread if I get anymore information. Not long now !
  3. Hey Ddarroch, Thanks for all of your information, I really appreciate it....... I’ve been lucky enough to visit Australia a couple of times, although many years ago now.........Sydney is such an amazing place, and I cant wait to get back there........in fact list time I was there was for the Vertigo Tour at the Olympic Park. Looking forward to making some more amazing life memories.
  4. Really hope they kick it all off with the ‘thumping’ tempo of Blackout......this was brilliant inside the arena setting, it will be so good to hear it played out to a stadium......... Think it will be quite something - a JT based show, but surrounded by SOI / SOE and other other little surprises.......that’s the way I see it / hope it plays out..... Travelling over from the UK for RZ at the SCG. Trip of a lifetime !!!!!! Roll on November !
  5. Eventually got 2 x RZ for Sydney, although a lot of the pricing categories were greyed out and showing ‘not available’ from the outset. Having clicked on RZ, and quantity x 2, when I went to ‘complete purchase’, for a while I kept getting the error message that there weren’t enough available tickets in RZ. After about the 30th attempt at retrying the ‘complete purchase’ button, it gave me 2 tickets and I could complete the transaction (apart from a further slight issue with my UK bank thinking it was a fraudulent transaction). If you experience similar obstacles, patience and perseverance is the key. Good luck 👍
  6. Thanks Max, your help is much appreciated, as always.
  7. Apologies if I’ve misread this, but U2.com indicates that Red Hill presale begins at 1000am on Tuesday the 4th June, however, Ticketek seems to state that Red Hill presale begins at 1100am........anyone with any further knowledge on this ? Thanks......
  8. Can’t wait for tonight ! Just on the train now, arriving into Piccadilly shortly...... Lets hope for ‘one of those amazing nights’......
  9. Hey guys.......great response, sounds like there will be a good group of us in town during Saturday afternoon. And thanks Bigwave......the Hard Rock Cafe from 3pm sounds like an ideal place and time for a bit of a get together.....hopefully with enough of us in there, we might be able to influence their sound system for the afternoon..... For anybody else in town from midday on Saturday, I think we’ll be heading towards Mulligans Irish Bar in Deansgate, which is about a 10-15 min walk from Hard Rock, and from the arena. Hope to see you all, and stay in touch on here over the weekend. For those going tomorrow, have a fantastic time ! Not long now !
  10. SpongeBob, I had an email 2 days ago relating specifically to Red Zone ticket holders, for Manchester 2. It’s basic collection instructions, and a reminder to take all ID and the card that was used for the purchase. For Manchester 2, Red Zone pickup is from 1730 and the tent / kiosk will be set up in Manchester Victoria Station, which is adjacent to the arena. There are detailed maps and diagrams within the email to show you exactly where to go. The email is sent from ‘Red Zone U2 E&I Tour’ Elizabeth Lyons.
  11. For anyone going to Manchester 2 on Sat 20th October, would you be interested in a pre show meet up somewhere in the city ? We are a large group travelling up from the Midlands, arriving in the city around midday, and we just thought it would be a great idea to see if there was any interest in a fan gathering in a pub, maybe near to the arena ? There are a few Irish bars not too far away, and if there was enough interest, we were thinking of making contact and hopefully getting a bar to host a pre show meet up, playing U2’s music and having a great time before heading off to the show. With enough interest, we could even try and maybe sort some live music out..... Just an idea....let me know if you’re in town and interested !
  12. Hi, interested to hear the outcome of this one if possible ? I had a very similar situation yesterday, my girlfriend is an Innocence Member, and Eventim account holder. She used her membership code and her Eventim account to buy 2 tickets in yesterday’s pre sale, but she used our joint card for payment - which is the same card that I used for my Experience presale purchase 24 hours earlier - again I have a separate Eventim account. The ONLY thing that is the same is the payment card. Is this likely to cause an issue. (Tickets were purchased for the same Manchester show). Thank you for any advice or knowledge.
  13. There was a fault on the Manchester link overnight. Thanks to this fault being reported by the mods, the Manchester link was corrected prior to today’s presale. For Manchester, the link should redirect you to Eventim. Definitely create an account / profile with Eventim, if you are waiting for tomorrows Innocence presale. I would also get the Eventim app if you are planning to purchase via your mobile phone. Follow the link as normal, via the U2.com tours page, and be logged in to your Eventim profile. Have your code ‘copied’ and ready to paste when requested. Then it should take you through to all available tickets. Follow each step with care, and you should be fine. Fingers crossed you get the tickets you want. This morning, Eventim was thankfully a pretty straight forward process. Good luck.
  14. Folks, also going to try for Madrid GA in tomorrow’s pre sale for experience. The ticket link for the first Madrid shows takes you through to Ticketmaster ES - so I take it we have to create another account specifically for TM in Spain ? And to add to that, I’ve only looked on the mobile site so far, but seems like no option to change text to English ? I could probably muddle through the ticket buying process and interpret which tickets I was attempting to buy, just don’t want to make a mistake when going for GA. If anyone (from outside Spain) has any experience of buying for night 1 through TM Spain, would be great to hear how it went. Thanks.
  15. Do you really think they will play 4 in London this time around ? If they had initially announced 2 dates (eg: like they did for Paris), then I would agree with you, but having only announced 1, and now 1 additional London date, I get the feeling that might be it. Given the ‘2 days on, 2 days off’, that would leave Sat 27th and Sun 28th October free on their schedule, for maybe Dublin or Belfast at a guess ? In saying that, the London O2 remains free on those dates, so you may well be right.......it just seems the London ticket sales are a little slow......weekend shows would obviously sell better though.
  16. Hi, is it right that the ticket selling agent for O2 London is AXS ??? If this is the case, do you need to register / have an account with AXS to complete the purchase, or can you just checkout without having to do all of that ? I have a Ticketmaster account, but not AXS, and Just want to get things sorted before the Innocence presale tomorrow. Any advice greatly appreciated.
  17. Well done on getting your tickets..... Quick question in preparation for tomorrow, when you followed the link for Manchester tickets, it takes you to Eventim and not Ticketmaster, is that right ? If this is the case, do you need any sort of account with Eventim to complete the purchase, or are you able to simply select your tickets and checkout as a guest, without any need for registration ?? Any advice greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  18. Yes I’m guessing so. My email clearly states that the window for this CD code to be used is ‘Monday 22nd thru Wednesday 24th’. I was initially planning on keeping it back to wait for additional dates, but I’m thinking it’s best to go with the fine print. I’ll be slightly peeved if I use it on Monday, and then it transpires that I could have kept it back for additional dates (not overly disappointed as getting any tickets I’ll regard as a success obviously)....but if I keep it back and it can’t be used after the 24th, then I only have myself to blame, as the dates for this type of presale code to be used are very clear.
  19. Yes that’s how it seems... I followed the link just to take a look, and that took me to the dedicated TM page for this specific pre sale, and then there is a drop down list to select the show / location you want tickets for. You select the show, for example, I selected London. It then takes you to a London specific page, and at the moment it just states ‘Tickets Coming Soon’.
  20. Just received a unique pre sale code via email this morning, for purchasing the CD through U2.com. It has a link to follow within the email, when the pre sale begins next Monday. There is then a drop down list to select the show of your choice, and it looks like it will then display any available tickets for that particular show (within the quota set aside for CD presale - I doubt it will show ALL tickets available in the actual arena).
  21. It will be very much the same as the Innocence Tour. All of the US stage layouts shown on Ticketmaster.com for the North American shows were the same as it was for Innocence. Main stage, and long cat walk to the B stage at the opposite end of the arena, with a double sided high res video screen running the length of the catwalk.
