*sob* Propaganda... why?!?

I just got that horrible e-mail *sigh*

I was really looking forward to GA...

Like O2, have you heard anything about your Austin Prop tix?

And I was having a good day!

I'll probably end up waiting in the GA line anyway--that has always been half the fun.

Well Like O2, I'm sorry to hear that!!!

We deserve the GAs!

I didn't think I'd have a problem because I sent my form off right away. The other three shows I've been to have all been GA in the heart so I thought Prop would provide for me again. blah

I received that e-mail for Providence. Sigh...

I was supposed to reply by Saturday (via e-mail) if I wanted to "upgrade." The only reason I was getting tickets from Propaganda was so that I could take my friend (the same one that lost a baby in July) into the heart. She couldn't get tickets and now Propaganda failed me. So I said "f*ck it" and decided not to get tickets at all - at least not from Propaganda.

I don't understand why they didn't get enough tickets for the fan club. Why let scalpers get tickets when fan club members get nothing? Even worse, on eBay I saw an ad from a person who received wonderful GA tickets from Propaganda - and he's selling them. Made my blood boil!

Suddenly, I'm no longer a "fan" of Propaganda... Apparently "ticket brokers" are the only way of getting the tickets we seek.

Bebe noooooo!!!!
im so sorry, now youre in the same crappy boat as me

are you going to upgrade? i did it and what I'm hoping to do is somehow get my hands on some GA and then sell the reserved seating ones..

it prolly wont work which makes me really depressed cos I soooo wanted GA especially after last time

well, best wishes sis, I really hope it works out for you

I got to go to one Elevation show, and it wasn't GA (they were the $85 ones), and it was still a blast.

Don't let no GA's stop you from going and having the night of your life!

Although I'm quite sad for you, I'm glad to know I'm not alone in getting the shaft. I'm considering the upgrade, but does anyone have any idea how good these seat are? I really don't want to pay that kind of money to be second tier, way in the back left. I know there are no guarantees, but how have those tickets from Prop been in general? Anyone?

The GC's in Vancouver last time around; I did not feel that they were worth the amount. Pretty far from the stage. I already have my GA's for Oak and sent Prop form for Las Vegas, and now I have the dreaded email. I responded that I needed more information before I coughed up that kind of dough.....
so I'll let you know what I find out...and I too would appreciate any information regarding the upgraded type of tickets...
ie seat to stage proximity...
Vancouver I went straight away for GC's and Tacoma was GA's, so I do know the difference

I did not get the upgrade because my friend (the very reason I was going to this show) cannot go on the 31st (Providence show).

However, when I obtained GC's for the Hartford show last June from Propaganda, they were spectacular! The best area to sit for GC's and very close to the stage.

Of course, there's no guarantee you'll get such great seats this time...

I also obtained $85 seats from Prop. for one Chicago show last May. I didn't really like them. Therefore, good GC or heart GA tickets are the way to go.

haha yeah i looked at the tix for sale on ebay and I found 2 GAs for $200 and i was like "wow maybe i can do it!" and then i saw the bidding time left...2 days. they got up to $800 which is just not an option for me.

a friend of mine tried to get me tix cos she knows someone who works at MSG but the only thing they could do for me is tell me to get there early on the day of and try to get some of the few they put up at the box office. I cant do that either b/c im not allowed to skip school grrrrr

then i tried to win them on the radio..my luck is continuing
well im still trying lol

all I can say is at least I'm fortunate enough to be able to afford the upgrade so at least I'll be in the building. and it wont take much to top my previous seats...

propaganda sent me another lovely e-mail back saying simply "we will upgrade your request" so at least I know im getting them

best wishes to all you fellow unfortunates, i hope you all get some..

I'm sorry you have to enter our club of those of us that got "The e-mail" something is not fair about this. My friend sent his in after me and got tickets and I didn't. Prop and U2 have to find a better way.

I'm sorry Bebe, that is a bum deal. This seems to have happened to a lot of the ardent fans here, it doesn't seem fair.

Has anyone mentioned the ETS option...$150 for the package deal and you stil get GA tickets? Don't know if they're still available.

Not that a trust them for a second, but a scalper scum told me that U2 will add at least one Dallas show to be held in the American Airline Arena.

Anyone heard other rumors about this?

And BTW, sorry to hear you're in the boat with Bebe and I 269.

The only problem with that (so I've heard) is they won't send you the ticket ahead of time. You have to pick it up at their little shindig that night. So, you can't wait in line. So it's not really worth it.

you've got the right shoes to get you through the night
