U2 fan since 1991, attempting to get tickets for NYC 5/21 or Boston 5/28 (new date), but Ticketmaster is a sham, brokers flooded the presale and grabbed many tickets, and now have relisted them at broker prices. I'll attempt to get regular sale tickets for NYC when they go on regular sale, but if not I'll have to cough up the bigger bucks, as I had to do with the Elevation Tour, as the same broker problem happened.

Ticketmaster sucks!

You have to wait for 15+ min afer you submit your ticket order so they can tell you that they are not available. I placed my order at exactly 30sec. after ticktes went on sale, no luck.

Increibly they added 2 extra shows in Chicago about 45 min after the first 2 went on sale. Incredibly as well, they all got sold out in about 1:15min. After trying unrelenteslly i managed tickets, behind the stage in the highest section at the united center for the FOURTH show.

I would recommend to all buyers to go personally to the closest ticket master to you so a real person can help you get tickest. I wanted 4 tickets. I would have not minded 2 + 2 not together, but the website will not allow that.

All this for a $8.50 "convience fee"
Step into my office, baby

I got the advice from a friend to be outside the ticket office at least 3 hours before the sale starts, and by no means trying the website or phone way of getting them. He got tickets for Metallica in Gothenburg last year that way, and that time it was a CRAZY rush for the tickets.
