Buying tickets @ Box Offices the day of... @ 04:34 pm

goldenbrowneyes:
ANYONE WHO HAS BOUGHT U2 TICKETS THE DAY OF THE SHOW @ THE VENUE'S BOX OFFICE, ANYWHERE... THIS POST IS FOR YOU.

I'm wondering who bought tickets the day of the show or shows and how good were the tickets? if any. How long did you wait for? Were the tickets still face-value? any GA tickets?
I know there was tickets available the day of the Los Angeles 2nd show. I heard people were there since 11am in line to get tickets. I got there about 2pm in the afternoon and at least 60 people were already there in line to get last minute tickets... any tickets available.
I heard there's a lot of extra tickets not sold and the venue sells them the day of the show... etc.

Thanks.
-Richard

I bought my tickets to Anaheim 1 on day of show. I got into line about 5pm and bought my ticket around 6pm. They had GAs available until about 4 people in front of me. I got a great seat, one of the $165, aisle, just a few rows up from the stage. In my opinion, better than GA because I could see everything perfectly and I didn't get squished or pounded on by anyone. The LA area crowds tend to get a bit rougher and ruder than those in other towns. That is the main reason I prefer to travel to see U2 than see them in the LA area.

I did day-of release for the two Anaheim shows and got GAs both times. On the first day, I arrived at the box office at 9 am and was about #30 in line. Twenty of the 29 people ahead of me were random people off the street who had been paid by a scalper to wait there and buy tickets. In the end, it didn't matter, because expensive seats were the first tickets released (at 4:35 pm), and the GAs went to dedicated fans who were farther back in line.

A friend got my ticket for me the second day. The line was long, but tickets were released (this time at noon), and everyone I know got what they wanted.

One of the guys I was with got GAs for San Jose doing the day-of release thing. There were about 25 people in line as of 7:30 am that day, and he was rather far back. The only stressful factor was that, like for Anaheim 1, tickets were released late in the day.

Hope this helps!

Interestingly enough, one of the GAs I bought for Anaheim 1 was designated a fan club ticket. It had been printed in January and had the fan notation on it. Not sure why that was, unless it was the ticket of someone whose credit card was declined...

I went and saw the band in San Jose on the 10th and we had to buy thoes tickets off ebay and my aunt is going again in November to take my Uncle and The morning after the show I said- we have to go again. We called the venue because Ticketmaster said that they werent on sale yet and they said that they had a few avaible. We are sort off to the side behind the stage and thats where I sat this past weekend but I liked it better cause altyhough they have their backs to us we are still closer and its way easier to see them. Plus a few times the Edge came over to our side of that little cat walk thing, and Bono turned around at least once if not twice durring every song....
