So not many really, and it goes without saying they should ALL go to LOYAL fan club members who have been with the site before the Aust tour was announced and not just joined as Johhny-Come-Lateleys.
I really can't believe the ingratitude some people have about the pre-sale system, how much better is it than the old days when you would have to spend a cold night out on the pavement to line up, and even then you weren't guaranteed a good seat. I remember Lovetown in 1989, I joined the ticket queue 12 hours before the box office opened and still only got seats about 100 rows back. Now you just do it from the comfort of work and home and the whole thing takes 5-10 minutes max.
For those with GA tickets, there is the opportunity to have even a better spot than in the Red Zone by getting to the stadium nice and early and you are paying $250 less for the privilage.
I don't think anyone is suggesting that loyal fans should not have first choice. Just as long as Not-Come-At-Alls don't get offered better tix than the Johhny-Come-Lateleys. If that were the case, the whinging would be perfectly justified don't you think?
I don't think we (Cedar) are not being offered the RZ tickets, we are all being offered it on Friday. The presale just promises a certain allocation earlier than the general public. And because we joined later than Group 1, they got the advantage and now RZ are sold out for this allocation. We sitll have a chance on Friday.
I think we still hold an advantage, last time U2 came, I sat in front of the computer for 2 hours for the public sale because the pages took ages to load and I didn't get any tickets. At least with the presale we're given a chance to tickets.
I still think the system's incredibly inefiicient though.
