  1. Given up hope of any Scottish concerts now and basically questioning whether I should keep paying for the website when getting tickets was always the major motivation.
  2. I wonder if the reported poor tickets sales in the US and for some of the European gig will lead to any changes in the itinerary for this year and next.
  3. Still holding out hope and kept my various codes available for any future gigs. Still sore from missing last year but have heard a few rumours about the Joshua Tree Tour returning at some point. MY best gig was Murrayfield for the Joshua Tree tour .. a festival for Scotland with Runrig, love and money, The Pogues and a very poor Mission, Celtic Park ZOO TV were good as was the SECC gig. Still loved my first gig at the Edinburgh Playhouse with staff trying to tell us we had to stay seated.
  4. Unfortunately those are the 2015 dates from the Innocence tour
  5. Getting fed up with how we are informed of things. I have been a subscription payer from the beginning and going to U2 concerts for years and things seemed to work better when we found out from the press and by word of mouth, and yes I have waited overnight just to purchase tickets and it was a helluva less frustrating than the last couple of tours. I am so gutted at missing the second tour in a row and now all we get are hints, rumours and smoke signals. I cant see them going for other indoor venues in UK because they know fans would be annoyed to have paid for tickets, travel and accomm
  6. This totally messes with our planning. Do we try to buy tickets for shows in England which will mean that my family cannot go because i cannot afford to take them all and pay for transport accommodation etc for the whole clan or do we hold off in the hope that extra shows are announced which include Scotland? Seems strange to have a band that cares so much about their status reduced to 13 stops on a European Tour, I know they are getting older but this would be a major scaling back from previous tours. Really wish I hadn't bought an extra copy of the album for a friend just to get the tic
  7. yeah I remember queuing in 1987 for Glasgow tickets to go with my Edinburgh tickets and having an absolute ball with the folks around me, I didn't have to have a $40 membership for maybe a chance of tickets every few years and the guys in the queue were always up for a song and a laugh. The Good old days. With the volume of tickets they are selling you would expect a certain percentage of problems to occur and with a band where they have previous experience of a ticketing fiasco you would expect a little extra care to be taken to make sure that it didn't happen again. Yet in the case it
  8. It is 12 years since we all received this from Larry, I am not sure that things sound that much better for a lot of people in this presale. From some posts it sounds as if the U2.com membership has been useless in securing tickets for them and has failed to address the problems Larry highlighted below in 2005. I know U2 care about their fans but when you eventually create something so complex, corporate and complicated to "protect" fans from scalpers then it may be time to go back and think up the ticketing process all over again. "This is not something that I would normally do, but I fee
  9. This is getting beyond a joke. It remains unclear for European subscribers (UK here) whether connecting to TM US will invalidate us for the forthcoming UK presales. I do not want any North American tickets and I still don't see enough clarity here to make me confident of what I should do to make sure I can secure the UK tickets I will be looking for. I have pre-ordered the deluxe cd and thought that would be enough but obviously not.
  10. 1. The Joshua Tree 2. Achtung Baby 3. The Unforgettable Fire TUF just edges out War for me.
  11. Thank you for the gift lads. First listen didnt grab me and was a lil worried but on a second listen through without the kids shouting I am grabbed now. Glastonbury and North Star definitely in there wearing new clothes as usual (especially on volcano). Guess I can stop googling "new U2 album" multiple times a day now. Still a couple of high notes i am not sure about but they might grow on me too. A good return and the promise of more to come. Once again thank you lads for 32 years and counting. Left this post sitting as I listened to it again and on a third run through different songs
  12. At least it wasn't Simon Cowell, if he is ever linked with the band then the last person on this web site can turn out the lights as we go.
  13. If this is true, and lets face it after 5 years of the bullshit we have had to put up with who wouldnt believe it, then I am very disappointed to say the least. I would rather they either shut up, pissed off and finished at least one of the four albums we have been teased with in the last 5 years, with any of the various muses they are hiring, or just admitted they can't manage to finish an album because they don't know what they are looking for any more. Perhaps if they stop trying to be relevant and happening then they might find their way again to make the music we love. Ordinary love is a
