ETS out of business!

@U2 tonight says that ETS has gone out of business, also confirmed by a post on Madonnalicious.com, dated June 20th (ETS had packages for her current tour). Phone is disconnected and e-mail is not being answered. Conflicting info on what to do, Matt at @U2 says sit tight, maybe something will be worked out to fulfill pending shows, Madonnalicious says to dispute with your credit card ASAP, then again she is on tour right now.

I hope it turns out OK for everybody still holding ticket packages for the pending rescheduled dates...

Can't order anything off it though, most everything is "waiting list" and the few that aren't take you to a page where it can't do anything and with a show date of January 1, 1900.

Wow, if this is true, the end of the Vertigo tour is turning into hell for U2.

I've been trying to get information on a refund for my New Zealand package for a month now, with no replies to any calls or emails since then. I even filed a report with the Ottawa Better Business Bureau, and they won't even respond to them. More than likely, they'll shut down and resurface somewhere else under another name.

Latest from Matt at @U2:

I'm told that ETS has, in fact, closed its doors. I'm also told that other travel-related companies are already trying to help pick up the pieces with Clear Channel Entertainment (tour promoters) to make sure that U2 fans get what they bought for the remaining Vertigo Tour dates. I'm also told that this situation is "probably a small reason" the rescheduled tour dates have not been announced yet. If you're an ETS customer, I would sit tight for now. Make sure you have some kind of proof of purchase and sit tight.

I really hope that all the ETS customers left in the lurch are going to be taken care of.

What's that smell? I think it's the faint odor of class-action lawsuit.

I'm not a litigous person by any means. But this shit is unacceptable. You don't just shut your doors and disconnect your phone and not answer emails without making sure your customers are taken care of damnit.

Hello

clear channel and all tickets purchased from ETS through U2.com will be taken care of.

Clear Channel have all the names and contact details of these people and details will be given out once the new dates have been announced.

At this time that is all I know

well it looks like this has been taken care by the looks of popartist's most recent post. So no lawsuits needed unless Clear Channel does something *idiotic* I wouldn't worry too much about it now...

Ya, me too. This is seriously f-kd up. I'll wait until the dates are announced and then start the arduous process of trying to find out whether I still have the tickets.

i think what the jest of the post means is that anyone who bought through u2.com's link to ets will be handled by clear channel, but I am sure those who went directly through ETS will also be handled by Clear Channel..

Don't worry folks you won't be left out with nothing.. For one, that would be numerous lawsuits against ETS or associates. So I am sure that they took care of the legal issues regarding going out of business.

Did anyone take a moment to stop and think that this very issue here could very possibly have had a lot to do with delay in announcing new dates? Legal issues aren't to be taken lightly and knowing U2, they don't want to hurt or disappoint their fans any more. So I for one am hoping that the extra time was used wisely while this ETS thing was ironed out.
