I'm currently feelin: pleased pleased
I'm currently hearin: Beautiful Day ~ U2

Today, as most of you might now, tickets went on sale for half the shows in the fall. So I get out of school just to get tickets for the show in Houston, and then hurry towards home and the computer.

I rushed so much to place the order that I didn't even look at what ticket I was getting... so I ended up getting nosebleed seats, section 421, row 11. I was so pissed at myself... so I decide to call Ticketmaster to cancel the order, because I knew I could have gotten GA tickets. The dude that picks up cancels the order and tells me that he can't sell me other tickets unless I've the membership code, which was retarded of him to point out since how would have I gotten the other 2 tickets otherwise? So I ask him how to get my tickets, and he says that I've to use the code U2.com gave me, but I point out that the code won't work anymore, and he says 'it may or may not work, try placing another order'. I go back online and try to get GA tickets, but of course, the code won't work.

I was really pissed off, because at that point I didn't have neither the nosebleed seats, nor the good ones. So it just comes to my mind the fact that I have Principle Management's phone number from an email they sent me... I decide calling and asking for a solution to my stupid mistake. A woman answered (she had this awesome Irish accent), and told me to write to ticketmaster asking them to reset my password. I couldn't find the email on U2.com.. so instead, I decide calling ticketmaster again. The dude who answered said that only U2 could re-activate it, I was like "WTF? they told me to contact you". I call Ireland again, and the same woman replies. This time she gives me her email addy so she can re-send my email to the person in charge of the codes. I was desperate at this point.
But at 11:40, this dude from ticketmaster calls and says that my code has been reset, and that in 5 minutes I could place another order! But I got the message at 4pm, 'cause I was at school. I was thinking 'fuck, there won't be any GA tickets left by now, 6 hours after the start of the presale!'
To my surprise, there were tickets when I placed my order!!!

I think Principle Management and U2 behaved themselves SO well! I am in awe! They really did improve their service *loves them so much and is so verr verr grateful* They fixed something I had messed up on. Heh.

Do you have a contact number for U2.com/Fanfire? Because I just got off the phone with some STUPID ticketmaster agent who's telling me there are no presales for Canadian shows, and he wouldn't let me talk to anyone else, and he just kept telling me to contact U2 about it.

Thanks!

Yes, sure I do, what's your email addy?

Y'know, I'm pretty sure the presale for the Canadian shows is next Wednesday.

It is, haha I'm kind of an impatient person so I bombarded the Zootopia board for Fanfire's number :) It is Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday. The person I talked to at ticketmaster was so misinformed it's not even funny. He said no presales in Canada, when on the ticketmaster site it already has info about the Toronto presale!

Thanks anyways!
