  1. Wow. Really glad I saw this 2 days before subscription renewal. This 'community' is certainly not what it was 10 years ago.
  2. Hi, Just planning in advance, in case the boys tour Oz next year. I already purchased a ticket in the presale for Paris for e&i. Does this mean if they tour Australia next year or in 2020, I won't be able to access the presale through U2.com again? Thanks.
  3. Hi, I got there 20 minutes before U2 came on and had no problems - in fact, I was the only one they had to take through, everyone else was already there. I still got a place at the front of the main stage. Maybe because I am short. (When I say 'front', there is a very wide gap between the edge of the stage and the crowd barrier with a heap of sound equipment and people there. I was pretty irritated that they had tall security people blocking the view. Not a single person attempted to go over the barrier during the show. Security would have been better sitting down on chairs facing the cro
  4. I thought I'd give an update after the show last night. This time I was sitting in the rafters and although it was terrifyingly high and far away, I actually saw the whole show in all its glory. This show was designed to be seen from afar. Comparing the two experiences is like night and day. When I was standing in the RZ I missed probably 75% of the visual content of the show - its just too close to see anything well. They really need a screen at the front. I had no idea what was going on down at the B stage when I was in front of the main stage in the RZ. The band were fantastic and the whole

  6. Apologies for the cross-posting but I thought my response to another thread may also be useful here...beware the red zone!!! Perhaps the RED zone experience improves if you are very tall. I'm quite short. I travelled from Australia to Paris for the 3rd show and made the mistake of buying a red zone ticket. In Australian dollars after conversion, that's over $500. I am on a teacher salary. To me, this is a lot of money. I would say that I could not see anything of the band for at least 50% of the show (actually I could see Larry a bit more than the others), except the screen and as tha
  7. It also depends on your height. I'm quite short. I travelled from Australia to Paris for the show and made the mistake of buying a red zone ticket.

I would say that I could not see anything of the band for at least 50% of the show (actually I could see Larry a bit more than the others), except the screen and as that doesn't always reflect what's happening on stage, it was a bit of a let down. They did not spend 80% of time on the main stage at the front, it was more li
  8. So...I was wondering if there was a problem with the quality of the pressings? I bought an *imported* 30 year remastered JT vinyl set here in Australia - $60 - and it had faults. WTSHNN skipped repeatedly and there appeared to be tiny spaces in the grooves. It was a poor quality pressing. I find it bizarre that in my youth I don't remember ever getting a single faulty LP like this so I wonder about the quality control on these new albums. If you bought one and you are keeping it nicely sealed in plastic, you may want to open it and check. I took mine back. $60 for a faulty LP when I own the or
  9. Right...I think I've got all the bases now covered....surely at least *one* of them will help me get a presale ticket! Thanks for your help! Much appreciated! So...If I only buy one ticket with my U2.com presale code, does that mean I can also buy one more ticket at a different location or is it restricted to 2 tickets at the same location? Hmmmm.... I just wish the seating categories didn't have weird names like 'hot seat 1' and 'hot seat 2'...then there's platinum and VIP etc etc....too many fancy/ confusing names. What happened to good old gold/ silver/ general seating/ general s
  10. Oh...thanks for that...I have now registered with them also but I might have missed a presale...don't know...we'll see... Their website is a little clearer than the direct Ticketmaster site...
  11. Thanks for that! I will give it a go! Perhaps the red zone isn't showing in the current shows because it has sold out? I am off to set up my French Ticketmaster account now!
  12. Hi, I desperately need help to purchase a ticket for the Paris concert. I am really confused. I'm in Australia and I can't see where you just purchase a standard ticket. Are the new pre-sale dates shown to accomodate the new shows that have been added? So...in theory...I *should* be able to get a presale ticket for the 12th if I can work out how to use Ticketmaster France? Is that correct? Anyone?
  13. I'm in Australia and want a ticket for Paris show but can't work out how to use the Ticketmaster website....where is the presale? Or did I miss that? Am so confused. I can only see a whole heap of package deals and no mention of the red zone at all...
