Is GA sold out for Amsterdam/Gothenburg?

I wonder if there is still any GA left for Boots members for Gothenburg/Amsterdam? I heard Milan GA is sold out already.
thanks

Yes, but what I mean is that is the 26,000+ figure made up of

1. Paid subscribers

and

2. People who are registered on the site, but haven't paid $50 ??

I believe that you can access limited forums if you haven't paid, so you would still show up under the "members" list ??

Who knows.......

When I was ordering tickets for Amsterdam this morning, GA wasn't sold out yet. It can't possibly be that either Gothenburg/Amsterdam/Milan is sold out already for GA? That would be pure madness

What happens when you enter the pre-sale too soon, are you still able to access it when the time is there? Doesn't your code 'expire'?

What, with u2.com presales alone? I don't think so. General sale hasn't even started yet.

on u2.com messageboard later someone else could get GA, so maybe it's just one individual who couldnt get GA's

http://community.u2.com/topic/2408

but I am still curious if anyone couldnt get GA for Amsterdam/Gothenburg

This is most likely the case. I'm sure when general public sale opens there will be plenty more available!

It's 100% bullshit that GA is already sold out. That's simply not possible. There are so many GA's and I do not believe that there are enough members of U2.com going to the same concert buying all the GA tickets. I think someone's panicking.

i hope so! because that would be particularly bad news for the Boots group...

Pre-sale has it's own quota per range, so it might be that pre-sale only offers 10% of available GA's.

Hm, I didn't know that. But then again, 10% of all available GA's. In A'dam how many GA's will that be? the total capacity of the ArenA is what? 50k?
There are only 26.000 U2.com members, and I see that about 500 or so of them would be interested in Amsterdam tickets, with the maximum of 4 pp that would be 2000 tickets gone. Plenty left!

4 years ago there were more than 100.000 paid U2.com subscribers, you don't tell me that 4 years later for a new tour there are 20.000 subscribers paid and-non paid. Probably just a glitch in the u2 system, that number.

u2.com has a certain quota for tickets, it is very well possible that this quota is "sold out" for a certain show.

"Sold out" never means "sold out" technically. There are always new quotas that are put out on the market and tickets will be available again.

Certainly there will be enough tickets for GA when general sale starts for these shows.

And I don't believe u2.com ever had 100.000 paid subscribers, that number is just exorbitant. 20.000 more or less seems realistic.
