  1. Subscription renewal

  2. Anyone not getting pitch2 in Dublin with a U2 subscription for over 10 years from 9am yesterday is pretty poor. Long term members should really get preference. No doubt plenty of tix will end up with part-time (big occasion) glory hunters. To think I used to 'wear-out' the Joshua Tree cassettes in my car, I played them so much, I used to have to buy new ones. Still, saw the show in '87. I can't complain too much I suppose.
  3. Gutted I missed pitch 2. I've only been a member for 1000 years tho, so what do you expect I guess. 9:03 way too late. I always panic, fumble, typo code etc Basil Fawlty fist wave at plant pots never helps either, ah well Will try for the 60th Joshua tour.
  4. I already had GA tickets for myself and my wife, I had presale having been a member for yonks. My sister was really keen to go. I waited till 9 o'clock rock this morning, despite the flak I knew I would get being late for work. On I went 9 bells on the dot, target 2 tickets for GA, we we could be together. Up they came at 9:02... No problem Trouble is in my excitement to get it all done using my sis credit card, I made a few mistakes...AND THE SECONDS WERE TICKING DOWN.....ONLY SO LONG TO SECURE THEM...... whats your postcode im screaming upstairs.....eh?.....what.....B....or P....tick tick tick tock...... OK...I've got it...... Submit.......tic tock..... There is a problem with your details.....tick tock, tick tock...... Ok Ok......shake, tremble....drop the iPad in a panic.....shake.....tick tock.....tick tock... Oh, dear.....must be the address somewhere.....perhaps I've forgotten the county....tick tock.....6.....5...4......shake tremble Sebmit, submit, press, press......ipad slips of the coffee table, tremble....panic... TIME UP.....0:00 Too late! You must resubmit... Arghhhhh... Right...I've lost them.....what?.....ive lost them I made a mistake and was timed out... Back to the start. Lo and behold......managed to get 2 GA again in my basket. Wow......yeah, guess what....same thing happened....lost them again Looking back this time with the cc number I think....had so many 2s and 0s in it, I messed up or the iPad didn't register a digit. That's life. Too slow. Nervous and excited . iPad bad idea for this purpose and the morning late for work shakes didn't help either. I make this rant, not to highlight the annoyance of Ticketmaster or the band. I just find it rather sad people look to buy tickets in order to sell them on. What a horrible low thing to do. Making money out of a great bands music and work. Shameful. And ordinary fans and supporters of U2 are made to miss out and suffer because of these people. Ticketmaster must go to great lengths to shield us from them I agree, but a few more minutes to book would be nice, for us older nervous types. I effectively lost 4 tickets this morning due to a countdown marker, and a website unsuitable for iPad use. That's showbusiness. 6th November 1984 Glasgow Barrowlands 29th July 1987 SEC Glasgow 18th June 1992 SEC Glasgow 7th August 1993 Celtic Football Park Glasgow 2nd September 1997 Edinburgh (boo) Murrayfield Stadium 27th August 2001 SEC Glasgow 21st June 2005 Glasgow Hampden Park 18th August 2009 Glasgow Hampden Park. And hope it's not my last......November 6th 2015 Glasgow Hydro....see you there folks....
  5. My buddy is skint, he doesn't get paid till late next week. I had planned to buy tickets for myself and my wife tomorrow, using pre sale. Then on Monday I want to buy 2 more tickets, 1 for him, one for his wife. It now looks if I do this I will lose all 4. What a mess. Anyway after 11 here is Glasgow. Time for some shut-eye. Lost interest.
  6. I just feel it will be all change now Springsteen is our new frontman ;-)
  7. So difficult to navigate back here from the U2 store....let me out!! Stuff seems rather...'grey'....anyway Yes I agree I'm an over 10 year member here too....we should be side stage, or something....'the mad subscribers area' It seems so rushed to me, planning for this has left me drained....where will I be on certain dates....home?......on business......kids holidays....school holidays.....all this to sort out in basically one evening, when I just want to sit and watch Magnum. Then there is the matter of a new album still to come....when? Halfway thru the tour? Will I miss it? Will I not get to see and hear it in a live situation, same as happened to me Rattle and Hum era when I missed Hawkmoon Gid part 2 live etc.? Who knows, this is such a mad rush.
  8. I think long term xPERIANCE members of whatever will be able to buy from 9AM tomorrow UK time (10am CET) Would that make sense after reading the email? I'm slightly confused when I read 'local' etc.....Doh!
  9. Ragoo 1. Agree 2.Agree This is just a hassle.
  10. How do you know which night will be the 'loud' or 'acoustic '? Hope Glasgow has GA (standing that is) add to the atmosphere. Saw the Who there the other day, sound was great, all seated but everyone floor level stood up anyway. Still no code Had a look for tickets in my iTunes account.....no joy
  11. I've no email and no code on my tour page. I've had a look at my profile, says I've only been a member since 2009, which is untrue I've been a member for yonks. What group will I be in? If I ever receive a code that is!!!
