uhm, just some advice your best bet is if you try multiple options,
phone, internet and go to an agency - i still think camping out at an
agency really early or the night before is the way to go - because the
internet always gets clogged and the phone lines are always full. Get a
friend or something to help you out. If you double book am sure you can resell. U2 usually goes in 30 minutes, down to about single seating in about 15-20. Its very much about getting lucky, because you could not have any seats and then the person after you could get some, cos someone may not have decided to go thru with their booking or something.

I should mention that I work there which is how all I know all this stuff...

Yeah, we camped out overnight to get our tickets to the second Sydney show, and we ended up with the back end of A Reserve (and were bloody glad to get it, after missing out on the first one) - and we were only tenth in line. I won't be knocking myself out this time, seeing as I have my ticket, but I'll probably try my luck online and on the phone.

the stupid lottery sucks though. I went to their show last may...and we got to ticketmaster 2 hours early and there were a few people, so I didn't mind, we were like4th in line...well then at opening they come out and announce to the hundreds of people that showed up either 5 mins before or even 15 mins LATE that they will be doing the Lotto. Now lucky my friends ticket was pulled and she was first but those people in front of us didn't get to go to the show, at least not from that ticket run...unless they called in because it was sold out in 20 mins, not even. So I definately think the lotto sucks, because I went out of my way to be there 2 hours early and If I didn't get tickets I would have been PISSED. they said its because they want to curb the sleeping out because its apparently dangerous or some BS like that...anywho good luck!

My god, that policy sucks balls! It's a bit different in our case - Ticketek is is the agent for the Sydney shows, and if there had been any kind of Ticketmaster lottery nonsense for the Melbourne show, I think I would have heard about it.

And, you know, we camped out at Ticketek. Dangerous? We were a group of four, we made sure we were all carrying phones and at least one person at a time stayed awake, and we didn't even have cash for the tickets on us, we had a friend bring that along in the morning. When we arrived for the campout, there were a bunch of folks, men and women we didn't know who we made friends with and ended up having a game of cricket with, HTDAAB was playing out of someone's car, we talked about U2 gigs past and we had a barbecue dinner and breakfast courtesy of these people. Dangerous? It was a little adventure, and the sense of community was strong - we were all U2 fans, damnit!

that sounds awesome! I mean I can see there point because NJ and PHILLY are pretty rough, I mean I live right next to camden which is the most dangerous city in america, but my town is safe...and cherry hill(where ticketmaster is) is safe, for the most part. But thats besides the point, I'd risk my safety anyday for the chance to go see U2 again...thats the whole point, I sacrificed sleep, time and money, and I would have camped out if we were allowed with out getting harrassed by the cops...U2 people take care of U2 people...
