  1. Were you able to attend a gig this tour? Sorry, I might be confusing you with someone else but I think I remember you saying that unfortunately you weren't able to see them this tour. I'm only bringing it up because I feel that could be affecting your opinion - Before I saw I+E in Glasgow I had been following the gigs through periscope and mixlr and there were a few songs that didn't really blow my mind (however overall I thought it was great). But it was a completely different experience seeing it live! For example, Raised by Wolves left me a bit cold but live I have to say it was incredible
  2. Yes, in most (or all?) venues you've been allowed to do this.
  3. Just a heads up that last night in Glasgow they were doing ID checks for GA. However they mainly just checked that the name in your credit card and the ID match but it was a super quick process (as in if someone had for example had a family member's cards they probably would have passed without problems, they didn't seem to check that your photo actually matches your face). But Christyblue I'm sure your son will be fine since your husband is taking them in.
  4. Trust me, I tried! Thankfully I'm lucky enough to be going to two of the Dublin gigs as well, on my own, so I can do the queuing craziness and hopefully front row again!
  5. I was there last night and it was such an amazing night! I'll probably write a better review later but all I want to say now is that it really was incredible. Got a brilliant spot on the front rail of main stage (totally made the 6am start worth it, ha!). The crowd was so good and the band seemed to have such a good time as well. One thing I did notice that I really liked was that (at least from my point of view, but it was limited) the GA crowd was very good in terms of keeping their phones in their pockets, at least when compared to some other gigs. I think makes such a difference when peopl
  6. Guys, keep trying! I didn't get anything in the morning and was so upset but I've just kept checking every 10 mins or so even though it kept saying 'sold out' and have just bagged a GA for Dublin 1! So there are still GA there, not many but there's still a chance.
  7. I would like to double check something about the following statement: "Tickets for the Irish shows -- will be limited to 2 per purchaser." Does that mean two tickets per gig, per venue or overall Irish gigs? I've used my pre-sale code so the chances of me getting more than two tickets (or I suppose, getting any tickets) in the general sale are very slim but just in case a miracle might happen, could I for example try to get tickets for both of the Belfast gigs and then one of the Dublin ones, making it three in total?
  8. Got a GA ticket for my husband for the second Glasgow night, just what I wanted. Again no issues whatsoever and was done by 9.01. Can't believe my luck.
  9. Oh wow, after seeing that photo of Hydro I'm even more excited now! I didn't realise it was that small! Oh man, it's going to be amazing.
  10. It's worth double checking the European venues for the use of paperless tickets - I got GA tickets for Glasgow and they are paperless. Not sure about other venues though.
  11. Asterix - Originally I was worried whether the code was linked with the number of tickets or the transaction(s), because last time I used TM (was a while ago though, mind) you couldn't put separate gigs into your basket and pay for everything together, but I noticed that a few eXPERIENCE people had booked the two nights on two separate transactions. So that's what I did; entered TM through the u2.com/tour page, chose the first night, put in my selection + code and went through the paying process. Then I started again, through the tour page to TM, chose second night, put in the code etc. So I t
  12. No, I had innocence. But in the rush I first put it in the experience box which of course didn't work. (I thought you might have done the same mistake by accident.) After realising my mistake it all went well, I bought the two tickets separately and both times it went perfectly smoothly. Also, I entered ticketmaster through the u2.com/tour page rather than going directly - not sure if that would make a difference.
  13. Same experience for me - got GA for both Glasgow nights, no issues whatsoever and had both tickets sorted by 10.06. Brilliant. Feeling very lucky considering what a hard time some people had yesterday!
  14. Managed to get GA tickets for both Glasgow nights! Over the moon! Can't believe how smoothly the whole process went, had first ticket at 10.03 and second at 10.06. I was a bit torn whether to get two tickets for one show so I can take my husband or go to two on my own but after considering it about 10 seconds decided to ditch my hubby, ha. Will try to get him a ticket on Monday though.
  15. Hmm, that's weird. :/ And did you definitely put it on the iNNOCENCE section? I was so excited at first that accidentally put my code into the eXPERIENCE slot first!
  16. Yeah, you should be. Did you get one of those gift subscriptions? A few people had that issue - it's actually a subscription for a friend so you get given a code which then needs to be inserted to the u2.com website to register. So some people in the end just used the gift code for themselves because it was easier than trying to swap the order. What kind of a confirmation email did you get?
  17. I just got my GA tickets for Glasgow, code and the site worked perfectly.
  18. ithoor and ASTG1959 - both of you are appearing as 'Members' rather than paid 'Subscribers' (at least to me), so are you sure your payment has gone through?
  19. Are you sure you've paid the subscription because you're appearing as a Member rather than Subscriber? If you got one of those gift subscriptions I think you need to activate the code first (I think a few people had this issue). I never got the email but when I go to the Tour page my code is there, so you should see yours there as well.
  20. Yes I managed to get 1 for both sunday and monday And I got one for Thursday and Friday. And it now says my code is invalid if I try to use it a third time, so it knows i have reached the limit So can you pay for one ticket and then go back to book a second night (and pay again)? Sorry, really stressing out here that I'll somehow manage to mess this up. I want to split between two nights as well and wasn't sure if you had to buy both tickets with the same transaction or if you can go back for a second one. But from what you are saying it's ok to do the two separately which sounds g
  21. Thanks, twoshots! Did you pay for the 8/9 first and then tried to purchase the 9/9 ticket? The code probably only allows one transaction..
  22. Did you use Ticketmaster to book? How did you manage to get two shows? Can you somehow add two shows into your basket and then pay for both together? Edit: Oh, and congrats for getting the tickets!
  23. If we can split the code for two shows, does anyone know exactly how to do this on Ticketmaster? So do I choose one night and pay for it, and then go back for another night to do the same. OR, do I choose tickets for the first night, then choose the "keep selection in basket" option, go for the next show and then pay for the two shows together? I'm really worried that the code is only for one transaction, so if I choose night 1 ticket and pay for it, I can't then go back to get my second ticket.
