Tour question @ 09:09 pm

scruby:

Hey, sorry for posting a new message for this but I’ve got an important question.

First of all, I just want to say that I love it that this community is vivid with life since the new album and thanks for everyone who keeps updating us. (:

Ok, U2 has been my favorite band for over 8 years and one of my biggest dreams is to see them live. I live in Israel and they've only been here once in 1997 (When I had no idea who they were) and I couldn't go to the last two tours, because on the first one I just got to know them and on the second I was in the army and I couldn't fly abroad.

But that's it! This time I'm going to see them! I'm going to fly somewhere in
Europe just so I could see them live! (:

So I wanted to know how hard it is to get tickets for their concerts? If I wake up early in the morning on March 9th and go straight to the computer? Will I have enough time to decide where to see them or just click on the first thing I see and buy a ticket? lol. (:
And can I buy a ticket for a concert in a different country without too much trouble? 

I know some of these questions are quite stupid, and I've bought tickets for concerts in England last year without too much troubles, but I'm just very nervous about it because it's one of my biggest dreams and this is my chance to see them and I don't want to miss it because of stupid things.

If you've any tips on buying tickets for a U2 concert please share with me!

Thank you. (:

I don't think you will be able to buy the tickets already on Monday, but that they will announce then when things go on sale.

But tickets go VERY fast. I went to see them in Amsterdam in 2005 and slept in front of the post office from 10pm the day before and still was one of the last people in that line to get tickets for the gig. It was insane. I fear it will be the same this time around, although I imagine bigger gigs (I suspect in London, etc) will take a lil longer to sell out.

Oh, plus with online booking there is always a lot of cursing involved with sites crashing and other heart stopping accidents. The only tip I can give you in that case is to just KEEP TRYING. Even when the thingy says its sold out. Occasionally there will be new tickets cause people don't play quickly enough or whatever else.

Thank you. Good to know that the tickets won't be on sale on March 9th, thought I wish they did, because I want to put my hand on them already. (:

This frightens me. I don't have to buy them from the post office, right? 'cause the only way I could buy them if they don't come here is through the internet or on the phone.

I think all tickets will be sold through Livenation and they are a rather good website for tickets (although really... when half the world tries to get tickets every site crashes ;))

I wish you good luck, though. You really deserve your tickets. Every fan needs to see the boys live at least once :)

Do you have an account with U2.com? I'm assuming they're going to do fan sales first before general Internet sales, which could help you get better seats.

No, and I don't want to spend 50$ on something like that, especially if I'm going to spend a lot of money on going abroad for a show, but thank you for the advise. (:

With or without an account on U2.com it's a total madness except if you accept to have the crappiest seat of the stadium.
My advice: don't waste time.

I'm certainly not planing to! Do you think that if I'll wake up early at the day they start selling tickets I'll have a good chance of getting a good ticket?

i live in russia, it's far enough too and i'm gonna buy tickets too. but i don't have any doubts that i won't get them. i'm sure i will. i bought tickets for bruce springsteen concerts (3 times for 3 different countries). he's the boss and he's that popular too. there was a big mess with tickets websites, but i got my tickets anyway. so good luck :)

I know how you feel, though they've been here once. How is it that U2 never came to Russia?! That's weird.

when sales were open all websites which were supposed to sell tickets were unavailable. then when i visited them it kept telling me that there was a queue and asked me to wait. as i remember i was waiting for some hours to get a access to the website. it was a bit nervous. because i had one bad experience when after long waiting it told me that all tickets were sold out.
