That blows.
Maybe there's an officer at the station that will grant you a free kick in the groin?

It *is* U2 after all.

I'd rather prefer if the cop held the loser down while I kicked him myself.

Ottawa, right? (You may refer to me as Genius) November 25th?

I got my tickets from these guys...

I'm not sure what your price range is, and it's not my place to ask. But there you have it, they send hard tickets, so I think that decreases the risk of sleaziness. Good luck. :-)

Far too rich for my blood. I've been to that site before. Thanks anyways though!

Alrighty, just trying. I managed to get my GA tix for half that price a while ago, stroke of luck. I hope you really are okay with just the DVD, they are just going to get more expensive from here on out.

Still.... shucks. :-\

I'm perfectly fine with just the DVD. After the events of today, it was just like back in March, ticketless and no chances for the concert. It's certainly not the end of my world or anything.

I've pretty much accepted that I'm only seeing it via DVD. I will have saved myself quite a bit of money though. ;)

Aww, I'm really sorry to hear that. :( Poor you. I hate people like that who have to spoil everything for people. DVD is not too bad though - you won't be squashed AND you can be comfy with some food and drink, always fun ;)

*hug* for you.

We'll just have to contend with the DVD now. But as another user pointed out, so much better when you can have comfy seats and snacks that aren't Corel Centre prices of "one arm, one leg". ;)

Fuck.

That's incredibly disappointing, I know what you're going through. I made the mistake of buying my tickets off E-Bay, and the tickets never came. (Luckily we spent a fortune at the stadium and got floor-tickets.) We got our money back, because Pay-Pal was being nice.

I really hope something good comes out of this for you. Maybe you can find some other tickets? Did you get your money back? *Crosses fingers*

I thankfully had not given any money. The cash I had set aside will just go back into my trip fund. I've pretty much given up getting tickets at this point. I'm disappointed, but it's certainly not the end of the world for me. :)

Ah yes, I'm sure our boys still have many, many albums and tours planned for the future. You'll get to see them. ^^

I'm sure there will be other opportunities. :) If not, I recently purchased The Complete U2. That will definitely comfort me. ;)

here: http://www.4throck.com/u2 you have to sign in but its free. keep checking back there closser to the date of the show. the rules are that because its fan based from U2.com, tickets are only allowed at face value pllus shipping.

I'm not a member of U2.com. It's really a moot point now. I've settled on not going.

You know what? Just show up the day off and try and buy at the box office. They always have some left over, and often they're GA too. It's worth a shot. If you don't get any, all you lost was a day and it was a day you spent with U2 fans!

::hugs:: So sorry to hear that guy was a shit. I hope you find a way!

I thought about that. I have a class in the morning, plus work in the afternoon on Fridays. *shrugs* It's really not worth it now.
