Ticket "drops"

Last tour we were extremely lucky with the "ticket drops" for Chicago, Phoenix, and Toronto shows a few days before the gigs took place. Does anyone think this will happen again this tour?

The last two shows involving Live Nation I've walked up to the ticket office at the stadium and asked if I could get a ticket.

Got into both. I wouldn't be worried.

There are always ticket drops for every show. The question is how big they are.

With arenas, they can sometimes be very small.

With stadiums, it tends to be easier. Sometimes entire sections can open up on the side of stages where hundreds of tickets can open up.

Bit of advice - always check the Ticketmaster mobile app as well. They jerk around with availability, so right now a desktop browser shows no GA tix available for Seattle, but the mobile app has some.

I see about 20 GA available for Seattle (May 1st 12:08 AM) in a web browser (chrome), but only if I select 1 as the quantity. If I select 2, I don't see any GA's.

I just posted this in another thread. Seattle GS's are available via the app. Just got 2.

TM via web browser is useless.

Vancouver: Many tickets dropped at face on Stubhub today. Mostly in the back 400's, and some obstructed view in the lower back 200's.

Doesn't seem like much of a scam if they're being sold at face on Stubhub. Why would the bots buy them all only to resell at cost?

Seems like the promoters can still say it's "Sold Out", while selling their own tickets on the secondary market.

Yes,most likely promoter selling them allright.
Could be a ploy to disrupt the secondary market,which is a good idea.

I love it. Just picked up 2 GA and did not have to join the absurd U2.com, or pay a markup to resale market sellers. Just validates the fact that paying u2 for 'early access' to tickets is really unnecessary these days.

However, it's also pretty lame that U2 have been advertising all these shows as sellouts, prompting a lot of people to buy from scalpers and pay out the nose. At the end of the day, these folks were just not doing their homework or were simply too impatient, but the band do bear some responsibility for this.
