Vertigo 06 presale - confused! @ 11:29 am

samuti:
Hi everyone.

So, I just got this email from U2.com...

U2//VERTIGO 2006 PRESALE

Dear Samantha

As you know, U2 are taking the Vertigo Tour into 2006 and dates have already been announced for Australia and New Zealand. Further dates in Mexico, South America and Japan will be announced soon.


Earlier in the year we sent you a unique code to take part in one of the presales for the U2 shows this year. As that code hasn't been used, we can now offer you the chance to buy up to 4 tickets in the presale this coming week (beginning Tuesday 29th November) for shows in New Zealand and Australia.

This presale is for tickets to the shows in Australia and New Zealand only. If you don't use your code then, you will be able to use it for later shows. We will be offering presales for shows in February/March 06 in Mexico, South America and Japan. Details will be sent out as soon as they are finalized.

Here is your unique presale ticketing code. This code replaces any prior issued code.
---------------
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx [presale code here]
---------------

When you log in to the U2.Com Subscription site, you will also find this unique presale ticketing code in the RED SUBSCRIBERS BOX.

You will need this code to take part in the presale.

The presale beginning on Tuesday noon (12PM Melbourne/Sydney Time Zone), is open for 48 hours and is for the following shows only:
Friday March 17th , New Zealand - Auckland, Ericcson Stadium
Tuesday March 21, Australia - Brisbane, Queensland Sports & Athletics Centre
Friday March 24 Australia - Melbourne, Telstra Dome
Tuesday March 28 Australia - Adelaide, AAMI Stadium
Friday March 31 Australia - Sydney, Telstra Stadium

You cannot use your code to make your advance ticketing purchase until the presale begins .

Best wishes and see you on the road !
The U2.Com Team

(Take care of this email - and don't let anyone else have access to it who might use it instead of you!)


Anyway, the reason I'm posting is that, uh, I actually DID use my presale code successfully last time round. Is there a blip in the system, or has everyone else got one regardless? I'd log on to Zootopia @ U2.com but my work computer is being a PITA at the moment.

Just saying, if they've accidentally sent me a new code, I don't have much use for it unless they plan to come back to Europe, so I'd like to pass it on to someone who would like it.

Thanks in advance :)

I know a couple other people that's happened to, actually. I'd love to have it for a couple of friends, if you don't mind. They've been U2 fans since 1979-saw them in Ireland back then!

Wah. I am conflicted now (thanks to comments below). I'll have a think about it, and definitely get back to you first if I decide to give it away.

There has been rumours of the band finishing off the tour in Europe next summer.
I dont have a spare code this time, but I did use mine to buy tix for 2nd/3rd leg tickets so I cant complain. But if I was you I would hold onto that code. You'll kick yourself if you give it away and they do decide to play Europe again.

Ok, as I'm the person asking for the code this will come off totally biased though I don't mean it to be!

Where have you heard rumours about more dates in Europe? I haven't heard those-I think that with the upcoming Mexico/South America/Japan dates, the band will be stopping. Larry has already said he's sick orf touring and I can't see them going for much longer than this. Who knows-more concerts is good for all but I'm not sure if it'll happen.

The back to Europe thing has been doing the rounds for months. Bono said at some of the later shows on 2nd leg "see you next year". He told Italian press he wants to finish the tour in Europe next summer.
Other side of the coin, Edge says he wants to finish the tour and start the next album. u2tours.com has some of the rumours listed, man there's even talk of another North American tour which is taking the piss imo.

I too doubt the tour will go past this 4th leg. But really anything can happen. I certainly wouldn't give a code away, to discover later on I could have used that code. But of course it could be spare codes become useless and other people could have used them. No win situation really.

Same happened in holland..
When he was here in June he said he hoped to see us next year and he would def. be back soon.

hence why many of us hope for another U2 leg coming to europe.

BTW with that code..
How many do you get and can you only buy for one concert?

In the FAQ that came with the email (didn't post it, because it was too long) it says you can buy up to FOUR tickets for only ONE show in the Australia & New Zealand pre-sale. Doesn't mention what happens with the other presales, but the implication is that the code is valid for the other presales too, once they're announced.
