  • Mood:


As people have already noted, the general sale today was a bit of a disaster. I must have been one of the first people with access because I had an approximately 30-second wait the first time I hit search. But the GAs were already gone and every consequent search kept me waiting at least 10 minutes. From the rumblings over on Zootopia, it seems entirely possible that there weren’t any (or many) GA tickets available in the general sale after all. Sucks, but I guess that’s how it goes.

So dear U2 fans, please help me with strategy, if you will. I’m sure there are several people out there trying to figure out how best to get the tickets they want, so this might be generally helpful. Which of the following options do you think is best?

1. Try again for GA tickets at the general sale for the second NY show
Pros: Reasonably priced tickets if you can get them
Cons: Can you get them?

2. Get another subscription and so receive another pre-sale code
Pros: Better chances since most people will be in the Boots category; $50 is likely going to be less money than whatever one pays to scalpers
Cons: Another $50 to the fan club for similar iffy chances

3. Give in to the many unfairnesses of the system and just pay $150 for a ticket on eBay.
Pros: Easy
Cons: Expensive; participation in a completely ridiculous re-selling process

4. Wait it out and hope that tickets get cheaper/more easily available closer to the date of the show.
Pros: Cheaper, less participation in morally bankrupt scalping system
Cons: Potential for great failure; unnecessary stress in the interim

Thoughts? :)
