  1. How are we already at the last stop on this tour? I was so sad at the end of the E&I tour knowing it would be a long stretch before seeing them live again. Getting to see them in Tokyo and Seoul was something I never dreamed I’d get to do. Seoul was especially amazing, being in the midst of so many people who had never gotten to see U2 live but had the same love that I have. I can’t describe how it felt hearing thousands of Japanese and Koreans singing their hearts out, tears streaming down their faces. Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. Pure magic! This tour was such a wonderful surprise blessing. I’m so happy for all of the fans on the other side of the globe who’ve gotten to experience the U2 for the first time. My heart is overflowing with joy for the U2 worldwide community. Can’t wait to listen to Mumbai.
  2. Waking up and realizing U2 is still playing in Manila! Morning oatmeal and Desire! Yes!!!
  3. Just landed at Narita airport. Can’t wait to join the tribe for the Saitama and Seoul shows. Let’s go!!! And I’m loving that we’ll line up in number order. More time to enjoy the city!
  4. Here’s hoping for lining up by the number on our ticket (I have no idea if my number low or high since I’m buying a ticket from someone). It would be awesome to not feel the need to line up. If that’s how the venue does it, I hope line leaders won’t try to come in and change the rules. I’m hoping folks respect how things are done in this country and go with the flow. I’m curious how this will shake out.
  5. It’s incredible to wake up and remember that U2 is playing live on the other side of the world. I can’t think of a better way to start my day than to catch the tail end of a show. Thanks for the excellent stream AC!!!
  6. When you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t sleep, then realize U2 is playing in Melbourne. What a way to spend a sleepless night.
  7. Throw in 40, but that would be greedy. This show was most excellent, something for everyone.
  8. THIS is how you knock the dust off Joshua Tree and hit it out of the ballpark. Well done boys!
  9. So far it seems like a pretty glitch free opening night. Nothing like JT opening in Vancouver. Sounds like the boys and the audience are really enjoying themselves, relaxed and easy. Loving this!
  10. Aren’t the tickets numbered so you line up in number order? I guess the question is will he venue use the ticket numbers.
  11. I had no luck with the lottery today for Japan 2. Never saw RZ, GA front or back. I expected there wouldn’t be much available so I’m not too upset. So now I’m on the lookout for any kind fan who might have 2 extra tickets for night 2 in the coming months. Thanks to those here who’ve given me advice over the last few weeks as I’ve tried to navigate getting tickets.
  12. Thanks for the info about the general sale. I’m hopeful for both of us that there will be a few tickets left.
  13. I just got an email from Pia that we didn’t get tickets. This AM we got a text from Bank of America that a Pia charge that looked like RZ was declined. I immediately called Bank of Am to approve it. But I was fearful Pia just moved on to the next person in the lottery. So I emailed Pia right away to let them know they could release-run the charge. Tonight I got 2 emails from Pia saying I didn’t get RZ or GA. So it seems they did just move on to the next person. So frustrating because I called B of Am last week to alert them that this charge would be happening, but they said it still may get flagged. How have people purchased tickets internationally like this without getting their credit card flagged? I’m so frustrated because it has felt like there was no way for me to buy them through their lottery system from the US. We were planning on Seoul 2 and saved our presale code for that, Japan wasn’t on our radar during Presales but I’m sure I wouldn’t have had issues if I had done the presale. Mods, will there be a ticket trade/sell page up sometime?
  14. Thanks, I sent an email just now alerting them that I’ve told my bank to approve the charges and to please re-run the transaction. I’m curious if they’ll even read my email or just dump the transaction. I tried to call Pia but my call won’t go through. I’m using: + 81 0570 06 9919 Is this the correct number for Pia? I’d love to just talk to someone to tell them to approve the charge.
  15. I registered for the vendor presale for tickets to the Tokyo night 2 show, I contacted my bank ahead of time to let them know about the purchase, etc. I received a text this morning from my bank saying it was declined and to text YES to approve it, which I did. Does Pia know that the transaction was approved my me or do I need to tell them to run the transaction again? I want to contact Pia but I can't find any contact info (email and/or phone). Does anyone know how I can contact them? I remember seeing contact info for all of the ticketing companies for this tour posted on Tours page for the subscriber presale, and I'm thinking that the Pia info might have been there. Can mods or anyone help? Many thanks.
  16. Just 622 rear GA tickets left. A slow go, but more sell every day. Since everything except rear GA sold very quickly, you'd think Live Nation would reconfigure or reprice those tickets to sell the show out. Seems like there was a great demand for everything except those rear GA that are numbered. I'm wondering when Live Nation is going to make the call to add a second show or not add another show. What a shame for Korean fans if U2 ends up only playing one night there after all these years of waiting. I'm still hoping....
  17. Could you share what exactly is a vendor presale? Like who is a part of this? From what you’re saying, I’m not likely to be able to take part in this. Just trying to make sense of my options. Thanks for the idea of the FB group. If I end up making it to the show, I’m going to need to buy you a drink to say thanks for all of your help. 😊
