  1. If you go to the U2.com store and select "All Products", the digital links will show up for everything. For some reason, going to "Music" and "Digital" does not give results. So, they're there - just not the easiest to get to.
  2. Check the numbers on the inner ring of the vinyl (non music part outside of the label) and see if they're all the same across the copies (on the side with the problem - each side will have a different number). If they are, it's likely a problem with the tool used in production. I don't have that problem on SoE, but I do on Unforgettable Fire remaster (skips near middle of Promenade).
  3. I actually could see them opening with "You're the Best Thing" - Bono walking in like the innocence tour, waving, etc., then starting the opening lines while walking from the experience stage to the innocence stage with everything kicking in and lights going out when he gets there - like "The Miracle" opener. I could definitely see Blackout as the second song - with stage lights going out right after Best Thing leading into strobes, etc for Blackout.
  4. Was looking at one of the ticket sites other than TM just to see how many tickets were available, and I noticed that for the DC show, a different stage set-up was shown. To this point, I had expected just the same as the Innocence tour, but this looks significantly different. It looks a bit too unique to be just a standard generic stage representation - which makes me think it may be genuine. It also explains why some of the "mid-sections" are somewhat higher priced than I would have expected. Not sure if the PIC I attached will carry into this post - but it looks like there are multiple walkways and possibly screen/set-up perpendicular to the middle screen? Just thought I'd throw it here to see if anyone knew anything about this. Again, it seems odd that this site I got it from would just make this up for the fun of it.
  5. From what I saw from GA, the best spot to be is around any of the branches. We were crowded around Larry's branch, and it seemed that Edge and Adam stayed mainly over on the RED Zone side near the top of the tree (slightly outside the Zone), and Bono seemed to like to come to the GA side a lot more than the RED side. During the JT portion, they spend most of their time on the main stage - so everyone is pretty much equal at that point. When Bono and Edge come back down, though, it seemed the RED Zone got more of their attention. The only "bad" spot to be in the RED Zone appeared to be the "trunk", as you'd only be near the guys as they went back and forth between the stages - but, still, that's not a bad spot. As someone else said, once you're that close, there's no real "bad" spot - it just comes down to who you want to be near.
  6. There was a small group of us who lucked into catching Bono right as we got out of security and headed into the stadium. I'm wondering if any of that group besides me is a member here and has any footage of it? I have the meet on video from my point of view, but would love if someone has it from a different angle or got any pictures of it. He was only up there for about 28 seconds - shook some hands, hugged someone, and went back down. Was a nice surprise!
  7. Wow - absolutely no reason to apologize. Glad you are OK! I remember two instances of EMS people coming, once through the GA line while we were lining up and once more in the field right before the show. I'm assuming the second was for you? Either way - absolutely no reason to apologize. It was a tough day even if you weren't going through a physical challenge - we were on our feet for about 8 hours total, at least half of it in the sun. It would have been tough on anyone!! Hopeful you'll be able to catch up with them when they come back around!!
  8. Got my bag yesterday - it's a bit nicer than I thought it would be. Was curious about what a "record bag" would be, and who walks around with LP's so much that they need a bag. Turns out, it's basically a backpack with a laptop slot, and the main pocket is slightly larger than an LP with a roll down top. So, technically, you can carry around LP's - but it's more of a versatile backpack than anything else. Nice stitching for the logo, as well.
  9. Going with a group of friends to Louisville, KY this Friday to see the show there. Taking my wife and older son to see them in Cleveland on July 1st, while I hang out in the city with my younger son (3's a bit too young for a show). Finally, seeing them in London on July 8th in the Red Zone. I'll have almost no time in London - landing the day of the show, flying out the next day at 10:00AM.
  10. I got an e-mail with the new code - the body of the message mentioned that it had happened to quite a few sets. Thanks to the crew for jumping on this!
  11. ??? I've searched through everything - even going so far as to make sure it wasn't stuffed in the book or printed on the back of one of the lithograph thingies. I don't see an e-mail with the code either - but I figured I wouldn't, that it would just be stuffed in the box somewhere, given that the box in the stores indicates a download code as well. Am I just blind? Where is it?
  12. Has anyone who ordered the vinyl edition gotten their JT themed record bag? I got the set in the mail this week, was excited, ripped it open, have been looking at the stuff, listening, etc. - and it dawned on me today - there was no record bag included! Is it supposed to come in a separate shipment? Did anyone get theirs with the disk shipment?
  13. Recently, I've been having quite a few problems with them. Right now, I have multiple orders in - one of which was for a potential birthday present - and no information back. I messaged them asking for an idea of when any of my items may ship - and got no response. A few weeks pass - still nothing. Just this past week, I got the JT 30th set in - but only got a portion of the order. I'm getting ready to send them another inquiry, but unfortunately, I don't expect much of an answer. Side rant - when they do ship items, they use the UPS Mail Innovations which has never had good tracking. I get a shipment notification from the shop, but then I'm in the dark until the package arrives. I check UPS, USPS, and the mail innovations sites daily - but none of them ever update when I enter the tracking numbers. Love the band, love the site, love the merchandise - but the shop could use some improvements.
  14. I ordered quite a bit of stuff from the U2.com store when the JT 2017 tour merchandise popped up. Usually, the site is pretty decent at shipping out quickly or at least updating the order to let me know when it's going to ship. I'm now out over a week since I placed the order with no indication of shipping or anything - so I was starting to wonder (especially since one of the items is for a birthday present). I know the group is on a tour, and I realize that I placed the orders on the day the stuff went up on the store, so I'm not complaining - but there wasn't an indication that this was any type of pre-order or anything. Does anyone know if the merchandise is actually shipping out, or if there's a date when it is expected to start shipping? Just trying to get an idea. Thank you!
  15. That's amazing that you'll be RZ for the tour opener!!!!! You're in for an experience!
  16. Popmart - Columbus (nosebleed seats in stadium) Elevation - Philadelphia (decent side seats in arena) Vertigo - Cleveland (the "bomb shelter" - mostly on Adam's side) 360 - Washington, DC (Inner circle - Edge side - I think this is the show my profile pic is from) 360 - Pittsburgh (Inner circle - Edge side) I and E - Chicago (end-side seats by Experience stage) Upcoming: Joshua Tree in Louisville, KY (GA) and London (RZ)
  17. GA in Louisville and RZ at Twickenham Bonus: Wife and older son are in seats for the Cleveland show
  18. I'd be interested in knowing this as well. For my part, I got a RedZone ticket for Twickenham, but was never asked for my pre-sale code. I went on to use the same code for 2 tickets to an American show. Right now, I technically have pre-sale codes to use for a show that I want to attend in America - but I am waiting for the public on-sale, because purchasing these tickets would put me at 6 used tickets as opposed to 2 or 3 used. From what I've been able to gather, even though I didn't use a pre-sale code for my Twickenham ticket - it is logged in TicketMaster as associated with my address and having been bought through the presale, so there is a chance it counts when audited. I have see so many tickets on sites like StubHub and similar which are advertising tickets to a show I'm waiting to go on public on-sale tomorrow. Given how stressful this has been for pre-sale subscribers (only 4 tickets per CC, address, subscriber, etc.) along with the threat of tickets being cancelled at the gate - I'm very interested to see how this will be handled at the venues. I also stumbled upon a website which freely advertised that for $10, someone could get U2 subscriber pre-sale codes as well as venue specific pre-sale codes. By stumbled, I mean it came up within the first page after a Google search for tickets (which I would expect most of the general public would do). I've done what I can to make sure I am well within all rules - but I cannot see how obviously scalped tickets like these will be handled. My understanding is that most, if not all, of the tickets for the US shows are credit card entry only, however I see ticket sites advertising them as having tickets which can be mailed, printed, etc. I don't see how that's possible. The show I'm waiting to buy for appears to have been heavily scalped - so I think "day of show" will be very interesting in the ticket line as far as seeing which people get turned away (if any) and which are let in.
  19. Thank you both for replies - I'm sorry I've posted similar questions quite a bit here, just paranoid. I've decided to stick with the public on-sale and hope there are GA tickets available. I already have too much money and planning wrapped up in the shows we have tickets for now, and I don't want to jinx that! Again - thanks for the help, and I'll see you guys out there!!
  20. So, I spoke to Ticketmaster today and explained my current situation wherein I have used my Red Hill code for 2 tickets to one US show, and want to use my wife's Wires code for a 2nd US show (for 4 tickets). He told me there would be no problem with that, as long as they were separate shows. I've seen conflicting reports here from the last tour - some people have done what I pointed out above and been fine, others have said there's a possibility of tickets being cancelled at the show. Can anyone back up or refute the TM rep? Part of me is thinking I should play it safe and simply buy the tickets for the 2nd show during the public on-sale, but I also don't want to miss out on tickets just for being paranoid. Also - the tickets I want for the 2nd show will be GA. Can anyone speak to how scarce GA tickets generally are by the public on-sale?
  21. Thank you for the reply - I did call again, and they again confirmed that she would have no problem using my card.
  22. I used my pre-sale code to buy 2 tickets for my wife and son (I am unable to go to this show). I noticed that these are credit card entry only. I called Ticketmaster, and the person on the other end told me that my wife would be able to get in as long as she had the credit card I used to buy the tickets. I asked if ID would be required (because obviously, she is not me), and the Ticketmaster person said it wouldn't matter - she only needs the credit card. This seems to run counter to what some people have said here regarding who can get in (I've seen some say that if the pre-sale person and credit card person are not there, they can't get in). It is possible for me to go to the gate with them, however the reason I can't go is because I need to care for our 3-year old. Taking a 3-year old to a stadium only to watch his mom and older brother go to a show he can't go to would be difficult to say the least - but if that's required to get them in, I guess we could do it - but then I still wouldn't be going in with them. Any advice - or am I worrying too much? There's a lot of expense associated with this show outside of the expense of the tickets - I don't want anything to go wrong with them being able to see the show.
  23. I'm interested in whatever response you get as well, because I have a similar situation. I used a credit card for my wife and son to use, and called TicketMaster since my name is on the card - not hers. I pointed out to them on the phone that I could definitely add her to my credit account and she would have a card - but it would not be the card I used. Their response was: "It's fine, she can just bring the card you used for the order and it will be OK". I further clarified that I would NOT be there - and she would be using a card with my name on it - and they said, "It's OK - it doesn't matter."
  24. So, both my wife and I are subscribers. I have a "Red Hill" pre-sale code account, and she has a "Wires" pre-sale code account. I purchased a single ticket for one of the European shows during the pre-sale, but didn't use my code (weird stuff happened on the European leg where they allowed non-pre-sale people to buy pre-sale tickets). Let's call the card I used for this "Card A" I got 2 tickets to US U2 show for my wife and son, to which I am unable to go because I need to take care of our younger son. For that purchase, I used 2 "pre-sale tickets" of my 4. Even though I will not be going to that, I verified with TicketMaster that she would be able to enter with my son without me being there as long as she uses the same card used to buy the tickets. I used a different credit card for this one, "Card B" Now it gets tricky: They just added another show that's close enough for me and some of my friends to go to. Wife is unable to go to this show. I have 4 friends who want to go, and I only have 2 pre-sale tickets left on my account and 4 left on her account. Can I: 1. Use her pre-sale code to buy 4 tickets (for me and 3 others), and then have the 5th person buy their ticket during the general on-sale? These will all be general admission, so we'll all be together regardless. 2. Should I just buy all 5 tickets at once during the public on-sale? I'm thinking of using "Card C" for the 4 ticker purchase, because I'm paranoid about messing up one of the other two purchases with the Credit Card Entry thing. I'm not sure what the right thing to do here is. I feel like I should use the code since I have it (and we, as a family paid for it) - but the code I would be using is technically her code, not mine. The ticketmaster site says spouses can be "authorized users" on the credit card account and gain entry, but I don't know if there's a further check to make sure the U2 subscription name is the same. On the one hand, it would be easier to just use the public on-sale for 5 GA tickets - but on the other, I'd hate to have the thing sell out and us not get tickets just because I'm being paranoid. Can anyone here confirm that GA tickets were available during the public on-sale - and, if so, were they available for a while, or did they go very fast?
