I've been a U2 fan for years and a member of U2.com since the begining (and a member of U2 World Service/Propaganda before that), but even so I was unsucessful at getting tickets, even using my presale code.
I did wait as I'd read that they were going to play in Ireland and I had a feeling it would be around my birthday. Sure enough they announced a date in Dublin on the 28th November - my actual birthday. I was so excited but I wasn't able to get tickets despite trying for hours, and then having friends and family try for me on the Monday too.
I'm gutted. My favourite band, in my favourite country, on my birthday. Denied! ...at least so far. I'm not going to give up hope until the Irish guy in the cool shades sings!!
Can anyone help me? I can't afford the crazy prices that the ticket touts are selling them for. I am also happy to go to either the Glasgow or Belfast shows.
