Which entrance is the best? J or G ?
There is no best, they are 100% exactly the same distance from the stage.

Question: my brother wants to subscribe to U2.com and wants to try and get tickets in the presales for the second Amsterdam show

But he doesn`t have a Visa Card, can he use mine?
Or will U2.com see it`s the same card used for the first Amsterdam presale show (got 4 tickets last week)

Thanks in advance!!!

U2.com isn't even getting to see the payment info, that's solely between the buyer and ticketmaster.
What matters is the code, which he will have to enter.
My code seems to be a magic key. Got three Berlin, two Amsterdam, two Brussels, and today two Amsterdam again.
Now waiting for the angry U2.com mail to come.

It's their own fault their coding system is faulty.. friend of mine had a code that wasn't striked through (already got four GA's on that for another show), so this morning she tested, and it worked. So we now have 4 GAs for Amsterdam 2 as well.

Meanwhile my own code had a line through it and immediately came up as faulty as I tried it on ticketmaster.

Last tour I used the same creditcard to purchase 5 memberships (Yeah I wanted to be _that_ sure I would get it for every show I wanted to go to), I don't think they care how many memberships someone buys, just as long as you stick to the 4-ticket limit with each of your codes.

Using the code to purchase 8 tickets seems kinda dangerous Galeongirl, I hope your tickets don't bounce in a week or something crazy like that if they do somehow doublecheck the amount per code later. Then again at this point it seems like a mess, on one code I bought 4 tickets (the other one just 2) but neither of them has been striked through so far.

The extra tickets was me.
I don't think there's a way the tickets can become invalid. It's all print-at-home tickets which I already downloaded and printed. Except the third Berlin ticket I got for a friend, because German ticketmaster had only conventional tickets. Which has already been delivered.
I also think it's ticketmaster's problem. If their system doesn't work, they have to fix it. Don't blame the customer. But they have to make sure that those who had a code and didn't even get four tickets get some form of compensation.
At the IE tour you had to purchase through eventim for the Geman shows. And there, only mobile tickets were possible for GA. But the codes worked. I'm glad they changed that, because it completely excluded the independent ticket shops.

I'm not sure they are allowed to bounce. I paid for the tickets. It was a legit transaction. Not my fault their code system doesn't work with different ticketing companies. What if I had no idea I wasn't supposed to use it again, and just assumed I could? It'd be pretty mean if they cancelled the tickets then.

I didn't get print tickets, but they should be here by monday. I'll see then.

It's the company's problem. I'm not responsible for their systems to work. If my code doesn't work at all, they need to compensate me for it. If my code works better than planned, their loss. The risk lies with the business, not the customer.
I also don't think there is a way to "deactivate" a ticket. I don't even think they really monitor. Or if they do, they will fix it for the next time.

July 29, 2017 - Amsterdam NL - Amsterdam Arena

There is absolutely a way to deactivate a ticket. Tickets are effectively canceled once they are scanned at the gate. There's no reason they wouldn't be able to void the code associated with a ticket long before the show.

Will they? I agree with you that it's very very unlikely...and past personal experience tells me they won't.

But they very easily can cancel a ticket.

I'm more worried about the little sentence in bold at the bottom of my order that tells me that because I bought the collector ticket, I will receive my ticket no later than 3 days before the show. 3 days?? Really??

I'v bougt the collector's kit in the Dublin concert (yes, living in Brasil and buying the CK for a Dublin concert was a bad move), and they say the CK will appear in my house the week prior.

I talked to my friend that bought it for a previous concert, and the CK didn't arrive, so he called Ticketmaster and they "printed" another ticket for him, and he collected in the arena, the day of the concert.

So, I don't think there will be a problem if the CK didn't arrive in time.


By the way, anyone knows anything about the A&O Hostel? I've booked a shared room in that place. Says it's not very far from the stadium...1.6km

Do yourself a favour and book something in the city centre. That way you can see much more touristy things. The stadium is right next to a Train/Metro station, so you can easily get there from the city centre within 15-30 minutes. Amsterdam is far too beautiful to stay around the ArenA.

Oh yes, I guess there is a technical possibility. Each ticket has a unique code. But from a legal view, I don't think they can. Nor do I worry too much that anyone will notice.
