Who else missed out?

just wondering how many other ppl missed out on tickets for the shows in aussie?
i am so upset, i was looking forward to seeing U2 more than anything that has ever happened in my life!

it looks like there will definately be another show in both melbourne and sydney.
im wondering if anyone can officially confirm this and does anyone know for sure when the tickets for these new shows will go on sale?

i will do anything to get tickets for these new concerts except for paying like $400 for a ticket off ebay. wat a joke.

If you are in Sydney, try Bondi Junction ticketek. I got there at 8 last night and was first in line...this was definitely not the case in other outlets. hope this helps.

u2!!! just kidding If you are willing to line up pretty early like I suggested in the other thread you will not miss out....so don't stress and just wait for the 2nd show.

If you're willing to travel, see if you can get Adelaide tix. I got A reserve no troubles (though I was 7th in line). But it's gotta be worth it, and definitely easier than Sydney or Melbourne!

Good luck

Yep I knew there would be interest but I didnt think it would be this bad. So why has it taken this long for Australia to go crazy about U2. Previously we couldnt even sell out stadiums. Luckily though got my tickets took a lot of waiting but worth it.

I dont know anyone who lives in Brisbane but I have been there twice and its nice city. I said the same thing about Melbourne and Sydney. I am sure you will have a great time in Brisbane though.

I reckon the internet is killing the possibility of people having an equal shot of getting a ticket.

I got one, but by pure chance....i could easily have missed out..

There needs to be a new way of purchasing things off online.

It's just unfair...

What about people with slow internet connections?
What about people with dodgy phone connections?

But that is the same as it has always been. Go back 10 years and you were dealing with 2 choices: Phone or line up, both with the same risks as today. The net is just providing a third risky way of going about it, but it's not greater or lesser a system than a decade ago really.

Like everyone said at the start, the best way to secure tickets was to line up. And may I just say that the Ticketek staff at my local outlet were fantastic! They knew exactly what they were doing and were as efficient as possible so that the most people in the queue could get tickets!
