  1. Wondering if they're continuing the E & I tour in 2019 (i.e., maybe another US leg, South American or Asian leg, etc.)? I vaguely recall some comments from the band that they might not do so--perhaps because they've been pretty busy with the I & E, JT, and now E & I tours--?? I sure hope there's more legs--the E & I tour is excellent (saw both 2018 Chicago shows). Whoops, sorry--just realized there's a thread on this topic a page or two down this list. I'd delete this topic if I could to cut down on duplication, but I don't see a way to do that.
  2. Pure speculation, but I'm wondering if there might be even more Dublin shows (beyond the current 4). The 3rd & 4th shows sold out super-fast, and there's no other dates after Dublin--? I hope so!
  3. As I just said in the other thread, mich40's suggestion to try another browser worked!! Thanks!! My Dad (and I) are happy people, and appreciate the help!
  4. Using a different browser worked!! Thanks for the help--my Dad (and I) appreciate it!
  5. Aaargh. Yes, his code starts with that. Did any additional instructions go out last night? He's logged on to his TM account, and inputting his (completely previously unused, including for the US leg dates already announced and the JT tour) presale code--which is then accepted as valid. Only when then searching for tix does the error message occur repeatedly.
  6. I could tell him to do that, Max, but this looks like a TM issue. The code is accepted--it's only the search that gives the error message. Also, JCF (above) reports the same issue.
  7. It's my father who's trying to get the tix, not me! His presale code wasn't used before.
  8. That's not it, Max. This is definitely a valid code (not used before), which the TM site accepts.
  9. Accepts code, but then gives error message "Sorry, there was an error with the search. Try again later.". ??
  10. Will accept presale code, but then any ticket search gets a "Sorry, there was an error with the search. Try again later." message. ??
  11. I do agree that "The Little Things" is OK. Regarding SOI, do you mean "Cedarwood Road"? (Cedars of Lebanon is from NLOTH). I also agree that Iris, RBW, and CR are OK songs--but to me, they're just not particularly interesting musically (OK, I'll give Iris a little slack here). And geez, SOI had awful tunes like California and Volcano. Bottom line (for me)--SOI had a few terrible songs, a bunch of OK ones (which, however, lack distinction, so they don't do anything for me over time), and a few genuinely excellent ones.
  12. I'm sorry, you're absolutely right--I quoted you misleadingly. To clarify, I agree with you for all PRE-SOI albums (i.e., grow on me with repeated listens), but definitely NOT with SOI (unlike you), and I'm very concerned I'll also "not grow on" SOE. The issue for me is that most of the stuff on SOI (and the pre-release stuff on SOE) sounds very undistinguished/unoriginal and even trite (with the exceptions I mentioned above). It's weird--it's like anybody could have made these records/songs.
  13. While I haven't heard the whole SOE album yet (just the 4 songs released beforehand), I'm quite concerned that I'll agree with you. With SOI, for example, I gave it many listens, but ultimately concluded (excepting EBW--the live version, not so much the album version, Lucifer's Hands, and maybe The Troubles) that it's a mediocre album (which mostly doesn't even sound like them)--by far my least favorite U2 album. What I've heard so far from SOE isn't encouraging, which is really disappointing.
  14. Well, actually, in prior arena tours (excepting the first Vertigo leg, which was fixed), presale access pretty much DID ensure good-to-great GA/other good ticket access. First, in the modern era, U2's first all-arena tour of the US was Elevation--and there were no problems whatsoever with u2 fan club GA availability (or great seats). This (in part) is why the first Vertigo presale (also arenas) was such a huge flap--and had nothing to do with arenas being smaller, etc. Larry himself acknowledged that the first Vertigo presale was a massive screwup, and things were promptly fixed for the rest of that tour. Then, as we all know, the 360 tour went back to stadiums (for the first time since the POP tour), so that's not as relevant. Then, as I mentioned in an earlier response, presale availability (both GA and good seats) for the 2015 I & E tour was still pretty good (perhaps showing some, but not a huge, decline vs. prior tours). In light of all this, all in all, the current tour had clearly had vastly inferior presale allocations (both GA and seat quality) vs. prior arena tours.
