I have been a U2.com subscriber for many years as well. My membership did lapse once because my email address changed and I didn't renew in time. This was a few years ago but I am still considered a 'newbie'. I've seen every tour since the original Joshua Tree multiple times and have spent an incredible amount of $ on all things U2, it has been the 'splurge' in my life and something I absolutely loved. My pre-sale is supposedly tomorrow - I did not receive the email that was supposed to be send to EVERYONE on the 13th. I am really hoping that I am able to get a code. My Joshua Tree 2017 pre-sale and credit card ticket experience was a disaster and honestly, the show was a bit disappointing and the GA crowd where we were standing were obnoxious.(Levi's Stadium - Santa Clara). If I don't get a code, it may be time to re-think my loyalty. I know they don't read these, I wonder if they know how horribly the real fans are affected by all these ticketing issues. Now I hear that a 'fan score' is taken into consideration and your score is based on your social media presence. Are you kidding me? Sure, I have a FB, Twitter and Instagram account - am I active on them? NO! I am an active 50 year old professional with a family and responsibilities - I don't hang out on social media and I am not going to change that to get access to a ticket pre-sale. If this is how they are deciding whether or not a person gets a code....I am done with this whole thing and unfortunately, right or wrong, will resent the band for it.
