Got that. Gift card is only for $25 so I would of had to use a credit card for the remainder anyway and I also have discount codes from that TM lawsuit thing but I couldn't even use those.

Doesn't seem to be the demand for these shows (according to these early presales) that there was for I&E. Seems fairly easy to get the tickets you want.

Stadiums versus arenas.

You cant really judge on first sales to loyal membership fans. This time next week we can judge,after the general sale

How long it takes?

If it's ticketmaster, you shouldn't even be able to buy with a used code. If for some reason it lets you, the order(s) will be canceled.

Well, used codes were used twice for the I&E tour and tickets were never cancelled. I know someone who did this.

Try Airbnb now, much easier .. the minute Croke in on open sale hotels will be hell. I've never seen a city hike their prices like Dublin.

The appropriate comparison is 360, which was also a walk in the park for GA presales.

Keep in mind you can fit about half the entire attendance of an average arena show on the floor of a stadium show alone, never mind the stands.

Me too for London mate.. it was easy. Still have to get some more tickets with other mates on Monday but persistence pays.

If anybody with a pre-sale code and have had problems, I would suggest calling in (before general sale ideally) and they will, from my experience, be really helpful.

I'm still spinning about getting tickets for "The Joshua Tree Tour' (I wasn't allowed to go in 87, I was 12, but many of my mates did in Cardiff and still talk about it today as the best gig they ever saw. I really want SOE, but the excitement this tour has generated with my mates is quite something..

I think/hope they will release SOE in the Spring and much of the show beside JT will be SOE.

Cheers U2 fans and here's to a brilliant and unpredictable year !

Question for those who got Chicago GAs - were they paperless/credit card entry?

With the short notice, I haven't been able to guarantee if a friend will be joining me at the concert, but I want to get two tickets in case it works out. But selling/transferring paperless tickets sounds like it may be a hassle.

Chicago is paperless. I was hesitant because I'm not entirely sure I can make it, so I'd hoped to be able to sell them if I can't. Guess now I'm going to have to get there somehow.

Got it. Not sure what I'll do then...

Thanks for the help!
