  1. RIP John Smith. Ordinary name. Extraordinary man. Founder of God's Squad Christian Motorcycle Club Melbourne chapter. More from the great man here https://www.eternitynews.com.au/in-depth/john-smith-prophet-teacher-evangelist-and-biker-takes-his-final-ride/
  2. Certainly do remember it. I was a volunteer for Amnesty International at the time and a few of their very lucky members (me included) managed to get into the premier in Leicester Square, London. The whole band were there and a host of other celebs too. Not so lucky this time, ho hum. But then I'd have a world of trouble trying to get to Dublin with this much notice. Enjoy, you lucky people!
  3. Any news of fan meet ups close to the venue? I'm hoping to be there early afternoon for Tuesday then very early for Wednesday as I will be heading for the GA line
  4. The O2 Arena website states that it can hold up to 2,200 on the arena floor. With the stage configuration for U2 I would guess that capacity would be at least halved. It's my first time in GA at a U2 gig for several decades so it is a BIG unknown quantity for me! On the plus side I'm aiming to get there for around 07:00am and I'm 6ft2" tall so I should have a pretty good view
  5. Hi I'll be going to both nights at the O2. Seated on the Tuesday then GA on the Wednesday. I was thinking of joining the GA queue after the Tuesday gig and staying there all night but will I be able to collect a numbered wrist band at some stage on Tuesday then return to the queue on Wednesday after a good nights sleep?
  6. Just heard of a data breach at Ticketmaster affecting UK ticket purchases after February this year... https://www.theguardian.com/money/2018/jun/27/identity-theft-warning-after-major-data-breach-at-ticketmaster?utm_source=esp&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=GU+Today+main+NEW+H+categories&utm_term=279430&subid=17748354&CMP=EMCNEWEML6619I2 I believe the UK gigs went on sale in January so hopefully that will limit the exposure. Worrying that this is only just coming to light when apparently it has been known since early April!
  7. My phone is a Sony Xperia L1 running Android 7. The app has been updated to the latest version and loads if a little slowly. When LIAWHL starts playing the image starts appearing from the top of the screen but it is just a garbled mess...
  8. Original email from Ticketmaster stated:- "If successfully drawn, you will be contacted by email on Wednesday 8 November, which will include a one-time-use unique code and link to obtain up to 2 tickets." Do you have links deactivated in your email client?
  9. ... Sorry, better luck next time Unfortunately you haven't been lucky this time in the MTV Presents Trafalgar Square ballot. There just weren’t enough tickets available for this event to meet the overwhelming demand from fans. However, make sure you keep an eye on your emails, as if not all the fans selected in the ballot redeem their tickets, there could be extra tickets released.
  10. Same here . Strange mix of nervousness & excitement. I thought they mentioned something about emails going out at around midday, or did I dream that
  11. Just read Ticketmaster FAQs regarding presale: Q: Can I register for #VerifiedFan from outside the U.S. + Canada? A: Yes,you can register for #VerifiedFan from outside the U.S. + Canada but only for the U.S. + Canada tour dates. However, I do agree; A Mod MUST make this clear please
  12. I've had the same email. Can a Mod confirm that we can definitely wait to connect our UK Ticketmaster account to access the European presales please?
  13. Anyone else just had an email from Ticketmaster to enter a ballot for tickets to see U2 performance in Trafalgar Square, London this Saturday? Excited much !
  14. Just can't describe how excited I am. It's like all my Christmases are coming at once! May not sleep that well tonight I'm so hyper
  15. That's pretty much what I was told when I phoned this morning. Also, for those driving there, Rugby road will be closed to traffic from around 16:30
  16. I was checking pictures of the GA queue for Cleveland and there were people with backpacks, handbags, carrier bags, etc. There is no way they could object to carrier bags outside the stadium. The issue would be if they aren't providing anyone to do a "bag check" once you are inside. I'll get clarification on this tomorrow. Elsewhere on the Twickenham website I noticed the following regarding security measures... "Any fans planning their trip should allow extra time to access the stadium and avoid bringing bags where possible."
  17. Totally agree. My wife is disabled and needs all kind of meds, water, sunscreen, etc. with her. Basically way to much to carry in pockets. I'll give the venue a call tomorrow to get the low down on this and post their response here.
  18. Yeah, I got that one too. TBH I thought it was a red herring all along. C'est la vie
  19. Definitely! Best support act EVER. Still remember them doing "One Day Like This" on the U2360 tour. Amazing. Although, what is the likelihood of TWO Manchester support acts?
  20. Got my tickets for the Saturday Twickenham show the other day. Interestingly it had the following paragraph... Opening Times: 1630 - Doors open 1800 - 1830 - Support act 1 (TBC) 1900 - 2000 - Noel Gallagher & The High Flying Birds 2030 - 2230 - U2 Personally I'm quite looking forward to Noel Gallagher but do we really want another support act? Of course it could be a complete red herring
  21. I've been getting a bit nervy too! Booked tickets for the disabled viewing platform direct with the stadium. Gave them a call today and they said they would be dispatched in the next week or so. Also said that the disabled parking is in the Tesco car park and the viewing platform will be on the East side of the stadium so overlooking the Red zone and the "Joshua Tree" stage. Definitely getting excited!
  22. Was that at Vinyl Tap? Had a few chaps in my queue at Revo Records, Halifax (England) that were there last year and the queues for Leeds are usually much bigger. Well at least it wasn't snowing like last year
  23. WOW! What a day/night! Managed to grab a couple of hours shut eye. Thankfully got the #RedHillMiningTown2017 picture disc.Less happy they didn't have any copies of the fanzine. Any how, many thanks for the hospitality of all at Revo Records Halifax you have truly made for a memorable day
  24. Thanks Westy. 12 is quite a few. Chap at Revo was very happy with 4. Time is approaching 6am now and queue is up to 17 so makes me much happier I came so INSANELY early
