Oh hell no they'd better not use the same deal as Depeche Mode where fans basically had to buy their way up the priority list, Taylor Swift's is similar.

To date these god awful schemes have been US only.

And what about those of us who spend 24/7 on mobile phones??

The only reason for keeping u2.com membership is presale codes- if that goes, then so does my membership

Too bad to be true. Hope U2 does not follow that path. And Larry won't allow, I guess.

That sounds terrible. Would U2 make their fans jump through all those hoops just to get first chance at tickets? I can't imagine them approving of this, but you never know. It's ridiculous. I think if this happened I would just forego the presale and take my chances with the public sale.

I haven't done presale in a long time.

I've had pretty good luck getting onto ticketmaster with the rest of the general public. And good experiences with ticket drops too.

New Presale Procedure Coming?

If it ain't broke don't fix it. I just looked and it won't let me put my full mobile number in :-(

It took my full number now

The Springsteen presale was a complete disaster... although there are so few tickets available for this go on Broadway it's probably not a good comparison.

Either way I'm highly suspect of this... hopefully it doesn't suck.

I've done the Verified Fan thing twice before and, like Headache said, a lot of it might just come down to demand. For one show, it worked just like a regular pre-sale and I didn't have to buy anything else. Same for the other show, except I did pre-order an mp3 version of the album for $10 to take part in a pre-sale group that went in a day earlier.

Depending on how it worked, if it didn't cause too many hoops to be jumped through, it wouldn't be a huge deal for me. Especially if their Verified Fan thing did actually work and take out some of the scalpers who go for these tickets regularly. Guess we'll see...

And even then, it's not without its controversy either...

It sounds to me like a money/advertising grab by promotors, couched in "hey were helping the fans by trying to stop scalpers" clothing. Arent we already paying for codes via the fanclub membership but this will possibly require further purchases to buy our way into a presale?

This will not be "Rock hottest ticket" in 2018.

Nobody will have any problem getting a ticket....at least for the North american shows.

Well, they're certainly finding ways to do that otherwise too... the early entry GA tickets, for instance.
