  1. Just thinking out loud... they managed to reactivate the codes of those people who bought their tickets in the 'accidental' presale and had their purchase cancelled. Couldn't they do the same thing again?
  2. I guess that if no-one can re-use their code, there's not much use for a presale 🤔 Oh well, sportshub moves in mysterious ways, who knows what will happen
  3. I'm really amazed that RZ is selling so quickly. It's basically GA with a fence around it and a bit more room to breathe. It's what people usually go for as a last resort when GA is sold out. Or when they don't want to queue (like me this time). In Europe, I would go for GA over RZ anytime, without a doubt.
  4. Very happy for you Sir! 😊 And you'll have a great time regardless of where you're standing. I have back troubles too, and usually prefer to find a bit of railing at the sound towers for support. If things get too crowded at the front (which they will) there's plenty of room to move (and dance) at the outer areas. Being at the front is of course great, but being at a U2 gig is amazing no matter where you are. I once ended up at the back, and still had Bono smiling at me personally, with 20000 people between us (later, my friends claimed he was looking at them, but I know better if course 😊). That's the degree of perfection of B's showmanship: he'll give each of the 40000 visitors in the room the feeling that it's just him and you. So be ready to be overwhelmed. Blown off your socks. Get teary eyed. Meet new friends. Have the occasional spiritual experience. My advice: leave your phone in your pocket. Don't experience this concert through a lense, but through your senses. That's what will give you the best memories IMHO: the sounds, the smells, your emotions when you hear your favorite song. Those memories will last way longer than a movie that you might not even watch that much.
  5. Thanks for giving us a great life, ehmmm...night! 👍👍👍👍 You guys rock.
  6. I had some lovely queueing experiences in Amsterdam too, but I'm glad I choose RZ for Singapore. This kind of climate is new to me, plus jetlag...😁 One thing that I sincerely hope though, is that the die hard, multiple-check-in GA queuers will take the local fans into consideration. For many local long time fans, this will be the first ever U2 concert in their life. They don't know about our quirky self-invented queueing regime. It would break my heart to have them think they're at the front to finally see their favorite band, only to discover that there's a bunch of (probably rather tall) regulars with numbers on their hands who claim they are first in line because they checked in twice a day for the last week. Don't get me wrong, I have queued myself, and when you know the rules, it will get you a great experience. But how graceful it would be if for once, we just forget about queueing and check-in and numbering, and let local fans have the railing spots. Assuming they want them, that is; friends in Singapore tell me they rather sit and enjoy the show 😊
  7. You're seriously considering queueing in Singapore? Apart from the question whether they let you (you get fined for forgetting to flush after a number 2, and they check), it's 34 degrees and 90% humidity...
  8. I left it...after all, it's the address where I'll stay during my stay in Singapore, so I'm not lying, right? I don't think you need to worry too much...it's just a mailing address, and RZ doesn't mail anything. One thing I would like to ask the mods (but they're already working on that), is to clarify what the actual cause is. Sportshub's website is antique, so I assume it's a technical weirdness or a bad user interface designer. But I'm 100% happy when I know that there's no other reason, like RZ being a charity and visitors having to be locally registered. (This is just a weird hypothetical example that I made up!)
  9. As long as it's not U2 deciding they don't want the same faces at the railing yet again, I'm happy :-)
  10. @Max Tsukino did you get any feedback on why RZ can only be purchased on a Singapore address? Is it a glitch with sportshub, or are there other reasons?
  11. No, you can leave your country and nationality as is. Just enter a different address:
  12. The only solution is to provide a Singapore address I'm afraid....you could try calling them and ask for advice.
  13. The address for sportshub registration is just a contact address. It's not needed for validation purpose (otherwise they would have asked for GA as well, right?)
  14. This lets you finish the order. I guess you can always change back the address to your proper address after booking, since there's no need IMHO for the organisation to have this information for a collect-at-venue delivery method. @Max Tsukino is this assumption correct?
  15. I went to Booking.com, booked a hotel with free cancellation policy and used that address as my 'Singapore' address. Previous RZ experiences only asked for name, ID and credit card number on which order was booked, so I assume this is OK. I don't know why they need a Singapore address.
  16. Email from Sportshub: As per the below e-mail, all tickets have been refunded from our end today. It might take one to two working weeks for the bank to clear and process the amount back into your account. In the meantime, you may attempt to purchase tickets tomorrow, 17 June 2019 from 10 am onwards. Additionally, please rest assured that the promotion code that you received to purchase tickets for the Singapore show will be still be valid for one-time usage.
  17. And called them again for a final check: after the cancellation email with the titel U2 2019 - Singapore, I received a mail with a confirmation of my order. This mail is very confusing, because it congratulates you on your order. But if you look closely, the number of tickets will be negative, as well as the amount of money due (both have a - sign in front of them). So it's actually the conformation of the cancellation/refund. RIght, I upped my credit card limit, going for red zone again tonight... I:-)
  18. Ok, just called customer service (girl named Elissa): tickets have indeed been cancelled, money will be refunded in 1 to 2 weeks, presale code is still working.
  19. Calling right now...or as soon as I'm awake enough to speak and understand English 😁
  20. It gets more confusing...now I got an email from sportshub again saying my order is confirmed? 🤔 The story continues.
  21. Thanks Max, will do. Feeling pretty miffed tbo...no info about refunding, and no idea if I can still use my presale code. Plus, my credit card now has insufficient funds to buy another ticket...
