  1. It's really a dumb design. A gimmick. When they broke it out last time, I'd hoped to never see it again.
  2. No GA's for the first time since becoming a fan club member. Wasted my code on limited view seats (no way am I paying over 300-bucks for what really amount to regular seats). Thing is, those of us who took what we could get on this sale are out in the cold when the additional dates are announced. Being a real fan just isn't worth it. I'll step aside and let the rich folks who have U2 on their concert bucket list take over.
  3. Exactly. No way are all the GA's gone. The last three tours I've had zero problem securing GA tix as a Fan Club member and that included indoor arenas in major cities. If they're not gone, who are they being set aside for? Are we not Fan enough anymore? My only option this time around were rip-off VIP packages (sorry U2, I've seen ya on every tour since the Joshua Tree but I'm not paying over 300 bucks for a regular seat), limited view, and back upper deck. What the...? I ended up snagging a pair of limited view tix, but I don't feel good about it. This will likely be my last U2 show.
  4. Hopefully it won't follow the same scenario as last nights. You're in! You're out! Code! No Code! Has anybody in the know (mods?) clarified this whole "lottery" thing? While this may apply to the GENERAL On-sale date, I didn't think it applied to Fan club members. I thought (and this is how it always was in the past) All Fan Club members got access to a code (with Experience folks getting first dibs the day before) which gave you a chance to purchase a ticket.
  5. I didn't. Earlier on this thread it was said that that they are supposed to go out tonight.
  6. Ho many tickets can Fan Club members purchase? Last tour it was 4.
  7. 2 GA for Boston - first night - right at Noon. Took 2-minutes at the most. I think having fast internet speeds helps as I always seem to do well with this sort of thing. Upgrade that internet peeps. It helps.
  8. Wow, MSG actually issues hard copy tix for GA? A scalpers dream indeed. Not good. I don't mind the credit card entry deal at all, because I actually use the tickets I buy and if, for some reason, I can't go the show the money lost isn't really going to make up for it anyway so...
  9. It's a legit gripe. That said, U2 isn't alone. When I saw the price for Stones, Who and Fleetwood Mac tix I had to laugh - insane! When you have bands that cross multiple generations they can get more cash for tix than ever before. It's a simply a larger pool of paying (and wealthier) fans. Ahh, for the good 'ol days when tix cost 10-bucks.
  10. You'll be fine - the stage is unconventional and amps are hung from the ceiling...
  11. The stage is a rectangle across the whole floor. That's a pretty big "front row". I don't see any need to line up early for it.
  12. FWIW - Picked up 2 GA for the Boston Friday show at noon today. So, there were some available today.
  13. Big exhale... Picked up a pair of GA for Boston today - smooth as butter. Got on at Noon and it took about a minute. Whatever the problems there were yesterday, I didn't experience them at all today.
  14. If that's all that's left then I pass. I've seen 'em before and I doubt they'll ever be better than they were in 87 and 91...
  15. So they really expect to sell all those lower bowl seats at 250 - 600 dollars? Wow. Too rich for my blood.

Aroney You were taking pot shots at the mods, as I stated before, if you want to complain, go for it as long as it if respectful. As for the moderators, we do not control the ticketing or touring, and so taking out your anger at us is unfair to us. Also, you might want to take a look at other threads, as they were NOT deleted, they were all merged into one giant thread so that we can monitor it more easily. The only thread that was removed, was the ticket exchange one for anti-semitic and racist comments. So if you are going to take pot shots at us, at least get your facts straight, ok? B. Pot shots? Pointing out that a thread over 9-pages long was "deleted" is a "pot shot"? A thread that you just admitted was removed? Sounds like my facts are/were straight. And I'm not taking out any "anger" at you. I'm perfectly calm. I didn't see any racist or anti-semitic comments, just a lot of people who are out hundreds, even thousands of dollars, for a 3-hour change in schedulethat was announced all the way back in April. In return a nice "regret the inconvenience". How nice. I'll grant you that I'm a bit oversensitive to the suppression of free speech especially in these overly politically correct times. As a long time U2fan I can remember so many of Bono's on stage "rants" - words that would have landed him in jail in some countries, but not here. At least notyet. So, I apologize. This isn't an assault on you "U2 moderator". It was not my intention at all.

  18. Nice of the moderator's to shut down other threads due to "technical" difficulties. The BS continues. Anyway, here's a repost: This time change was announced in April!!!

  19. Unreal - a "refund" or "trade" just doesn't cut it. U2 management/tour promotors etc. had to have known for months. The NFL announcedthe time change of the Jets game back in April! http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2009/04/nfl_changes_time_of_new_york_j.html Why the delay U2? 3-and-a-half hours makes that much difference? So, yeah - travel, hotel, work - cya. I have 4 GA tickets - not sure what I'm gonna do with 'em a this point. Real bad form on this one. With Stadium shows they have to realize people aretraveling hundreds of miles to see them. A Friday to a Wednesday is a huge switch. Aargh.
