I want to know what we can do. Are we just totally screwed by U2.com and Ticketmaster? How hard is it to give a long term fan who has never let their fan club membership lapse... a code for the chance to purchase tickets?
I called TM today to see if I can get a code since I was told I was going to get a code and then I was denied a code. I was told that sorry you were not selected to get a code. I told them that they have sent codes to other people who are in the same situation. They did not care. I don't know what to do now. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Oh, I am in the Experience group and have had an account since they went to the internet.
I am still waiting for an Experience code... I am not sweating since I am waiting/ hoping for a Denver show, but I should not be excluded from a code since Ticketmaster can't figure out who is a fan and who is not...
This whole thing is a bad joke. Ticketmaster's algorithm simply can not make out who is a fan and who is not. I almost feel I need to take all of my records, t-shirts, books, ticket stubs, etc and head to the local Ticketmaster office to prove I am a fan.
I wish they would do a lottery like Springsteen does. So, lets say around 3 PM everyone gets a number and then around 4:30 they choose one number to be the frist in line. People line up behind the selected first number. This would take care of some of the stress and it would also give working people break.
Residual Kid from Austin (just signed by Seymuor Stein) would be awesome for this tour. It would go with the Innocence vibe.
Since that is not going to happen I would be more than happy with Savages, Sleater Kinney, Ex Hexx, The National, TV on the Radio, etc.. Just no Fray!!
