Yes, I think what cyde meant was that they told us that they keep the front rows of the various sections, so we will be close to the front of the section, not necessarily the front row. So....we took them.

Print your dam name on the ticket and if you don't have a photo id with your name on it, you don't get in. No more ebay, no more scalpers, no more 10 times the price of tickets in a secondary market.
and then when you still dont get tickets what will you do? Then youre shit our of luck because there is no secondary market or if there is it will astronomical.

People assume taking scalpers out of the equation means they will get the tickets they want. 1800 GA seats for a show in Boston or NY probably means there is 50 people wanting a GA ticket for everyone that is available.

I love Pearl Jam and have seen them 70+ times but they are not U2. You cant ID everybody at an arena or stadium show. Its too many people.

Unfortunately, for U2 fans, the demand is far, far greater than the supply.

Yeah, but if you were as desperate as I (and bought off ebay), I'm getting screwed too!!!

ETS is a package deal company. They're the official package provider of U2. They have packages with flight, hotel and ticket to the shows.

Problem is this time around there are no GA's being offered like with Elevation. They gave their allotment of GA's back to U2.
