General Admission Tickets @ 04:32 pm

claire_bear27:
Okay U2 fans with vaster knowledge than my own, I bought two 55 quid tickets to see u2 today *I'm keeping my explosive excitement to a barely contained minimum*, and they are general admission.

My question is, what does that mean? Some people have told me its on the field, and the closer you get to the stage depends on a lottery and first come first served. Thats fine, so long as I'm in the stadium but I'm curious because my order info has both seat numbers a section of a stand.

I specifically bought general admission standing tickets, so why do I have a stand and seat no? Any help?

Does it say definitely say General Admission on the order? If so, it's GA standing. They often put seat numbers on- probably as a way to keep track of the number of tickets sold.

It is first come first served- in the US last tour there was a lottery to get in the area inside the ellipse- the big circular bit that came out from the main stage. But if you were there early the worst that could happen was first rail outside the ellipse.

In any case, they *didn't* do a lottery for the stadium shows (including the one stadium show in the US) so I'm not quite sure how it'll work this time.

Hmmm...It says GA6...I'm taking it thats general admission but its also the name of a stand at my stadium.

Also I mustv'e bought General Admission Standing because they are the only tickets priced at £55...maybe the seat no. is just to keep track

So long as I'm there, I'm happy but thanks for the info :)

this is what ticketmaster.co.uk says:

Question

I thought I had bought standing tickets but my tickets have a row and seat number?

Answer

General Admission tickets are numbered so we can keep a track of ticketing and do not reflect any actual seating location.

Ahh...see, someone with common sense.

I swear, I was on the website buying them at 8.57 this morning and I got them without even knowing what I was buying except it had U2 next to it :D

Thank you for the info :)

This is really not fair! I was sitting next to the computer from about 8:30 and I refreshed it from time to time, but when it was a few minutes before 9:00 I waited until it was 9:00 to start refreshing again. Then I tried to but a ticket, it send me waiting for a bout 7 minutes and than said there weren't any tickets available. I kept refreshing the site for about an hour and a half but I couldn't get any standing tickets for London!
So it's really annoying to hear now that the sail started before 9:00! If I knew that maybe I would've gotten a ticket to London.

Anyway, I'm going to see them in Paris and I'm glad for you that you managed to get a ticket. Where are you going to see them? (:

The sale didn't start before nine...my clock had to have been different from ticketmasters.

It is really unfair, because I know people who were doing the exact thing I was doing and never got a thing because standing tickets sold out a 7 minutes past nine.

If you really want to see them in london, keep track on ticketmaster for tickets that are re-released or tickets that were held back at the initial sale...even if it says sold out, it might not actually be sold out.

But wow, Paris sounds amazing. I'm going to see them in my hometown, Glasgow, Scotland.

Hope you have a great time and even find a ticket for London. :)
