  1. This looks awesome, gonna be a big seller ...I have that picture on my bathroom wall too ;-) Our Q Legends: U2 special is out on Wednesday! It features classic interviews, rare and unseen photos, and a foreword by The Edge. You can buy your copy here: goo.gl/QDhBY5 As U2 prepare to embark on yet another sold-out tour of the world’s biggest venues, it seemed like the right time to revisit our escapades with them over the years. Q was only 10 issues old when we joined them on the road in 1987 and witnessed Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr’s group morphi
  2. Most foolproof way is for Governments to make it illegal for Ticketbastard & friends to do what they are doing
  3. Here's a few links for you guys .maybe a few more resident paddies will add to it https://www.ireland.com/en-us/ireland-stories/people-and-culture/articles/utwo-dublin/ http://www.bruxelles.ie/ One of the best bars in Dublin ..home of the wonderful Phil Lynott statue https://www.tripadvisor.ie/Attraction_Review-g186605-d605166-Reviews-The_Long_Hall-Dublin_County_Dublin.html One of the finest bars in the city...a must visit https://crokepark.ie/gaa-museum-tours/stadium-tour https://www.independent.ie/life/travel/ireland/u2s-dublin-10-iconic-landmarks-in
  4. I really wish people would look at this properly before trotting out this "membership fans selling " myth .The numbers coming from fans are paltry , absolutely inconsequential in the scheme of things . Ticketmaster want people saying this , they are claiming it themselves (without providing proof) as they don't want presales for fans ..they want all the tickets ,not just 90% of them and the presales for fans piss them off ..face value for something they can sell for 7 or 800 and mark up their profit margins . As has been proven , 90% of these resale tickets come from themselves
  5. U2 , a Irish band (we've loaned to the world) , I REALLY don't think the original thread starter really thought out the thread title very well
  6. God ,this is a thoroughly depressing epitaph of a thread...The lads aren't even halfway through a tour and they've been retired ,split up and carted off to the rest home for the mega rich. Music is in their blood ,and Live music is their heartbeat. In a few months time I go to see a 74 year old Roger Waters in the Point Depot ,a 74 year old that is still writing , and creates tours to match U2 ,there is nothing preventing U2 doing the same .Lets face it ,with their back catalogue they'll never be short of material.personally I look forward to the Joshua Tree 50 ,just hope to hell I can g
  7. Currently just gone 8pm in Dublin and there are 138 tickets for sale on seatwave ....thats where the tickets are going
  8. Dublin Joshue Tree Tour when some drunk idiot knocked a tray of beer out of my hand and all over me .A lad from Belfast stopped me from decking him and the Gardai & Stewards took the drunk fool out of the stadium...About 20 minutes later 2 Gardai came down to my seat with a try of beer for me .Was a incredible moment and everyone around me just looked on in complete shock.
  9. There's nothing in the venue until the 17th of November so there is nothing on the venue side preventing further gigs .Loads of rumours of more gigs but Its probably wishful thinking.
  10. That could well be the case , but how hard is it really to beat that process? A email address and a credit card .And as the link I posted shows , they are already doing that .Viagogo had a book of credit cards to purchase with , and a host of email addresses .Of course the other issue is the "Turkeys voting for Xmas" problem whereby those reporting on this are the same people that are causing this .They want the world to believe that greedy fans in fan clubs are the issue as it suits their agenda .Less pre-sales means bigger slice of tickets for them to fleece even more Wish bands would w
  11. Its a multi million pound/dollar/Euro industry and out of the control of bands and their management.The only thing that will stop it is legisalation
  12. Look at the expose BBC Panorama did on Viagogo ,getmein & ticketmaster a few years ago .It should still be available on iplayer .The Secondary seller tickets were mainly coming from their own offices and in some cases and events was policy . A simple button on seatwave forcing people to add the seat number when adding the ticket for realse would solve the whole mess
  13. Looks like a Ticketmaster screw up to me .Probably took too long adding their printed off tickets to Seatwave to deal with the actual sale .beyond frustrating and highly amateurish .I eventually got in at 9:36 and there was no GA standing available and I ended up panicking and just grabbing the first 2 I could get ..I'm beyond disgusted with MCD , Ticketbasturd and U2 . Not one of my mates got tickets , neither did my wife so it looks like my kids ( 12 & 9) won't be going which is going to break their hearts tonight Horrible way to treat their most loyal followers. 2018 , we ca
