Well, everything but the cheapest seats are sold out for Milan, so even the most expensive seats sold. GA tickets weren't expensive. I don't see the complaints, the prices are normal for these categories and for concerts these days. Everyone who wants into GA should get a moderately priced GA ticket.

It doesn't seem you can any tickets though. Is there another website?

Shameful selling! I'm a horizon member, i couldn't choose my tickets on the map, I got bad seats even If I was first.
People won't buy third ring to see anything. The best seats are reserved to VIP packages, so they're not on sale. Ticketone server crashed many times.
Italian people want the GA tickets to enjoy the band, fu** off the standing seats!
And of course, it's too expensive. If I pay a lot I wanna the best seats, I pretend to choose them, If I can't...bye bye U2! And that's why Milan is not sold out!

And I think i can speak about my fellow italian friends, they are really disappointed by the prices! And Paul McGuinnes was saying "tickets will be cheaper than Vt" Liar!

The prices, except for GA, are doubled!
Did you try for GAs at all or just seats in the pre-sale? If it was GAs, did you manage to get any?

Yeah, that post made me nervous for the US pre-sales. Are we going to be screwed if we're thinking we can buy the "best seats" at the $250 level during the pre-sale?

Or were GAs the ones that were hard to get?

GAs for Amsterdam 1 were easy to get during the presale, I think even some Boots people got them. Not sure about the $250 seats, though. It'd be nice to know how many fans with presale codes used them for the A'dam/G'berg/Milano gigs.

Hm, okay. Thanks for the info. I've never done a pre-sale before and have no idea what to expect.

Good times. And by "good," I mean "full of anxiety."

At least you'll be dealing with a familiar website.. trying to navigate the Dutch sites took awhile. Best thing to do to get prepared is try some practice runs with Live Nation.com: sign up, log in, and go through the ticket buying process for some other show almost to the end before you have to pay. That helped me a lot with the Amsterdam presale

I should've realised this stuff sooner. I totally could've translated the site in advance for you guys but I didn't realise that until after an hour or so!

Well, it is sold out. Only cheap seats were available for a while, now they are gone. The expensive seats were gone earlier. Seats are also still available for Amsterdam I and II. GA tickets were gone fast for all these shows and they were moderately priced.

Are you seeing any pairs of Amsterdam tickets left or just the singles? I need 2 for the 21st

haha, thanks for the offer, Galeongirl! Actually, Livenation.nl gives you a choice of Dutch or English, so that wasn't the problem, really. It was just getting used to the different screens, and the fact that you had to login to eventim.nl once you got tickets, even though you were already logged in to LN.

I can't wait for the Zagreb ticket website

If you don't get tickets could you try eBay?

I could but its the trust/money/morals of it - i've seen som 33 euro ones go for 125 euro each, its just such a leap. Im hoping for more tickets to be released and the U2 community to help each other out. I have sorted out some Amsterdam 1 tickets with sum1 if I can get Dublin in the presale to trade, but i would love Amsterdam two aswell

You shouldn't go on Ebay and such scalperish sites. Don't give those moneyhungry assholes what they want.

We have a trade forum here(What do you want/have in the main tour section) and I'm sure there are fans who would like to trade or sell you their spare tickets. I hoped to be able to get extra tix myself, but I couldn't go trough the first hour and when I did I could only buy 1 GA at the time.

Nope, only single tickets, sorry.

Maybe a new batch of tickets will be released later, the same happened with Milan after the first batches were gone.

Sorry I didn't mean to be so harsh. I'm just incredibly frustrated that there are so many 'legal' sites now advertising with u2 tickets for over 5 times face value. I don't understand why these sites aren't shut down by the government or record companies or ANYONE!

I'm trying for you but both sites give me errors whenever I try to select tickets.

I can order 1 for 160e, one for 88, one for 82,5 none for 33 and none for wheelchair.
