In Sydney we had Red Zone. Showed up about 15 min before check in. There was already a line. We went in and I got a spot exactly where I wanted halfway up the catwalk between the mainstage and the B stage. I had one guy in front of me on the rail. He got there at 8AM... I was 12 inches further away from the rail and I showed up at check in.. Folks- smell the roses- You don't need to wait in line for days to get a decent spot at these big shows.
I really think the Aussie and Kiwi local fans are a bunch of whiners. Being very vocal complaining that the biggest band in the world have fans who go early to wait in line to get up front. Geez--- life isnt fair. If you can't get up early you might miss breakfast. If you can't get to the pub before last call you might not get a pint..
I have had GA and RZ in many countries. I have never waited in line more than a few hours before showtime. And I have always been right up front or comfortably in the center a little further back...
Love you people and love your countries. But man --- waaaah waaaaah waaaaaah.
There might have been an announcement somewhere else but I missed it and I dont want anyone else to miss it... If you want to buy, sell, trade tickets for JT 2019 Sydney please request access to join the club..
I posted my trade request.
Unfortunately it appears that there were not any RZ allocated to the Live Nation presale... Got in immediately at 15:00AEST and the allocation displayed as exhausted... Will try one last time in the general... Good luck everyone.
Thank you! I registered. Do they send a code or is it something along the lines of-- You go to their page and login and if u r registered the interface shows the ticket buying options for you? Really really appreciate it!
I struck out for RZ during Red Hill Presale... So I used my code to buy 2 GA's knowing I would have 2 tickets left to still try for RZ in the next presale or the general. During checkout for the GA's, my Bank of America card was declined despite there being money in my account... The BofA App quickly notified me of "suspicious activity". I was able to tell it that this is really me attempting the charge and I was able to rerun the card successfully before the Ticketek clock expired...
4 Hours later in the Wires Presale I hit paydirt... I was so excited!!! 2 Red Zones in my cart... Going through checkout. All was smooth.. Then - CARD DECLINED AGAIN despite money being in there and despite me earlier indicating this is really me for this vendor (Ticketek)... But this time the app didnt notify me or ask me to confirm... The clock ran down. I lost the tickets.
I called Bank of America and they said the app couldnt be used to quickly clear this up the second time around and that they needed me to call in like I did because the amount was above some threshold.. Well you know the story. By the time they authenticated me the RZ allocation was gone...
I was livid. Now I am just sad.
I will try again in the general public sale. I will call the bank first to try and make sure this doesnt repeat itself if I get lucky again...
BUT If anyone has 2 extra RZ for Sydney please consider selling to me...
Want to use my presales code to purchase tickets for Sydney. I have gotten pretty proficient and therefore often successful using Ticketmaster (app and website).. But the Sydney tickets are being sold via Ticketek… Anyone out there have experience buying tickets on Ticketek from the US??? In particular - using a presales code for an event that is in high demand ???
Thx for playing!
Thank you, Max.. So to add a layer of complexity... I just scored RZ for Night 4 so I am considering selling my Night 3 GAs to a worthy fan. IF I go that route should I pursue a transfer of some sort through the venue or should I just give the buyer my expired CC???
Hi.. I purchased 2 GAs for Dublin Night 3. These are paperless tickets. I have the email and I have the original credit card used for the purchase. BUT the bank sent me a new replacement CC since then...
WILL I BE OK IF THEY SCAN THE ORIGINAL (but now expired) CC????
Or do I need to do something else and what would that be?
I was referring moreso to the proximity to the main stage and not the catwalk... When I did Red Zone for I+e the front of the section overlapped with the stage. The Dublin TM graphic I posted shows RZ to the side of the stage with no overlap... Here - have a look at the seating chart from 2015 Chicago to see what I am saying compared to the 3Arena chart...
Saw them at Croke (Vertigo years back and JT last summer).
We are doing Night 3 (Friday) this November. Scored a pair of GAs about 8 hours into the Innocence presale after a very long day of trying... Grateful...
Flights booked. AirBnB booking request is in just today... SO EXCITED!!
I was overcome with emotion at the Dublin show. I cried through probably 4-5 songs. There might have been one or two u2 shows as good or better out of the 25 or so shows I have been to in the last 30 years... BUT I do not remember which ones. WOW! Just wow... I feel so fortunate to have been at this one.
Thank you to the fellow fans who came through and reached out to me to help me with the one ticket I needed... All good. Karma is good.
I actually need one Pitch 2 (we have one for the two of us now). But I am striking out so attempting to go this route and if I score I will sell my existing single Pitch 2 for face value to a worthy fan.
Can anyone help with either 2 RZ's or a single Pitch 2?
