Got top price seats in block 118, row 6 for Amsterdam - which I suspect will be slightly behind the stage - oh well. At the next price down, only block 123 was on offer. Transaction couldn't have been smoother.

Out of interest, I entered my code to see how smooth it was all running for Breathe members, and even though its not yeet 10am, I got through to able to purchase GA tickets. Thank goodness its running so well by the look of it, but how early are they going to go on sale???

Will have 2 spares to barter for another european date once I figure out what else I've got and what I want

Right on, bro!

My friend Fernando in Germany got 4 Amsterdam 1 GAs, too, so we're set. Can't wait to party with you, mi Amigo!

The only problem my friend had was trying to get the tickets shipped to his place in Germany at the low-cost shipping fee. His credit card is registered here in the US, though, so when he typed his Delivery Address different from his Invoice Address, a note popped up saying they still have to charge him the 34 Euro "Worldwide" shipping fee, even though they only have to ship the tickets a couple hundred miles away... greedy bastards.

While trying different address combinations so he could avoid the Worldwide shipping fee, my friend's order timed out, so he had to start over again, but everything turned out well, in the end.

Will try for Amsterdam 2 tickets if and when they go on sale this Saturday (or later) during the general onsale.

I have an extra Boots code, so I'm tempted to buy more Amsterdam GAs in order to trade them for other shows, but since there seems to be a lot of GAs available to fan club members this time, maybe I'll wait and try my luck with Gelsenkirchen, Chorzow, Zagreb or London with this code...

Glad to hear all the positive U2.com presale stories this time, I guess Larry's Grammys speech paid off.

Going to sleep now (almost 04am in Mexico City) but I want to thank all of you for your help and specially Nick for his directions (you're the man!).

well if you go to the website and to the community-section you can check 'members' then you can see how many pages with members there are. 20 names for each page, so times 20...
assuming that all members are automatically in that list? this I am not sure...so there can be more members

This is the graph of the stadium with the stage: http://360.u2.com/images/largevenues/lg_milan.jpg


This is a picture of the coloured sections in the Stadium.



I am in row 3 of the red section. opposite where the teams come out of their tunnel, so in the side closer to the stage. I hope it's gonna be worth the expense.

Smooth transaction for Amsterdam via LiveNation! Logged in at about 09:40 AM (yeah yeah, I didn't have a lot of patience to wait and try until 10 AM ), could see exactly what seats they would be, row and chair! Then paid via iDeal, received a confirmation e-mail the minute after the transaction

Amsterdam presale: the first 150 EUR seats didn't satisfy my needs, but after a couple refreshes I finally got seats that I think are worth 150 EUR. But I have to say all seats I could pull up were close to the stage so I think they reserved the better 150 seats for the presale.

But is that all members, including those who have just registered on the site ? If it is then the number of paid up members must be less....

Gothenburg -e-tickets only if you live outside Sweden

Is this true, Gothenburg - e-tickets or pickup tickets only if you live outside Sweden? Has anyone outside Sweden bought Gothenburg tix during this presale What delivery methods were offered?

Gothenburg breathe sent smooth. Guided my fiancee via phone from work. She got in about 9:58 and went for 4 tickets for the best (hopefully) seated places. Most expensive anyway. About 1275 sek. We død have to register an account with the ticket company along the way but very smooth. Is there somewhere to check where our section really is. Some kind of placement map?

Definately a deal! So what time will you be there? We're planning on taking the first train in the morning so we can queue around 6 am.
