I like my naive little bubble where I refuse to believe people like that actually exist. I mean... why?? Are they the people who buy those VIP packages where you sit in a "themed room" with an overpriced cash bar DURING the gig?

They are the people who get the shits when others stand.

They are also the ones that get tickets to go to the AFL grand final when they have never been to a match all year and don't support either team

Woah, Larry's drumstick! I remember you from the old days

I still have that video single of Numb somewhere...


I need to make a spreadsheet to keep track of which tickets I have for what people, who has mine, flights and hotels and how much all this craziness is going to cost. *L*

Hi Alisaura!

I shouldn't be talking! I've been lurking today because I'm at work and keep refreshing my screen whenever I can to find out more ticket sales info. Looks like there'll be no more today then... Has Perth 2 sold out?

Here's my pricing map for Sydney, for anyone buying seats to the 2nd gig.



I'm expecting sections 114-125 to also be $230. The sales have stalled pretty badly for the $230 seats (been offering blocks of 8 seats in 125-1 for over half an hour). Not great value there, these went for $95 at the Rose Bowl. As Axver said the high ticket prices can't be helping. I hope U2 haven't bitten off more than they can chew, because I want a 2nd Sydney date.

Prepare to roll your eyes at a "friend-of a friend-of a friend-told me" story One of my sister's work collegues has a partner who works for Ticketek Marketing. He builds the date info into the website. He hasn't been approached for a 2nd Sydney show yet, & as need he needs a couple of days to lead into it, sales definitely won't be today or Monday.

Damn you Ticketek. if it went on sale at like 3pm today, that would be perfect.

I'm expecting the same for Melbourne, so it seems.

It takes ticketek a couple of days to prepare? Yeah, I suppose if I was building a web site with the crash and burn reliability of their web site it would take me days as well. It would actually take effort to make it that bad.

Mr V, don't despair just yet, when they say "sold out" there are always ticket drops a month or so down the track. Vertigo I got Melb and Syd tickets at least a month after they first went on sale. Our awol mate reptile got a ticket to Melb on the AFTERNOON of the show (radio announced a last allocation of tickets). There is always a way!!!!

this this this this this.

fucking destroys my soul.

at the Melb gig in 06 i sat next to a woman who had her legs crossed and arms folded for nearly the entire show, golf-clapped at the end of songs, and was annoyed when i stood up from Vertigo onwards.

You probably don't remember me We met up in Melb once, probably '99 or 2000.

Nope, GA still there for Perth 2, and Perth 1 still has seats available.

Maybe there should be separate seating sections for people who don't want to stand up... waaaay up the back.

Surely how had is it for Ticketek to say "oh look there will be a second show in City X, stay tuned for details or tickets on sale 10th September"

Woah, for once I have good financial timing. Pay-day AND I got my bond back from the place I just moved out of.

Not that it's going to last long...
