The concert and the code @ 04:24 pm

gravitysdream:
I'm currently feelin: curious curious
I'm currently hearin: U2 - With or Without You

Okay I admit it, I didn't feel like spending $40 to join u2.com to just get the code. I should justify myself so that no one will think Im just singey. First I quit my job to get the vacation pay in order to go see the boys (I had to spend $300 for my ticket). I also sang with or without you in bikini briefs out front of 99X radio station in Augusta with two other people to get tickets to go see them back for POP. Im dedicated, trust me. But after seeing them four times I have to admit I'll be just as happy going and sitting in the stands as I would be standing two feet from Bono; then again I might grab hold of him and never let him go lol. Im going to go the usual ticket master route. Ive been saving a credit cardI have with a $1,000 limit just in case I have to buy the ticket elsewhere but either way Im going.

Anybody else feel the same?

It's not that I'm stingy either, it's just that I'm seriously dead broke. And it doesn't help to be an art student in college without a job (no one will hire me!). But I will find a way to see them!!!

I'm utterly broke too so I didn't pay for u2.com membership, but have told myself that when these opportunities come only once in about 4-5 years, that it's worth it to find a way to see them. Seeing them with a GA ticket on the Elevation tour was one of the best experiences of my life. And for that, I had purchased a nosebleed seat through Ticketmaster and was actually able to trade for a GA ticket about an hour before the show! Sometimes miracles happen! You will find a way!

A lot of critics have criticized U2 for "selling out", for the iPod and the amount of promotion that went into the album. Charging fans for membership didn't make things better.

I signed up this morning, had no problems, and already have my code. Of course I never got my discount code from Propaganda. Sigh.

I too am a poor arts student at Uni and simply do not have the money to spend on both membership and tickets. However, I'm also sort of new to U2. Well, not really. I've always been a general fan, had CDs, really liked them but recently I just fell HARD for them and am now among the obssesed.

This will be my first concert. I tried to go to the last one, but I had an exam in high school and couldn't rearrange the time, no matter how hard I tried.

So I'm hoping that what I heard is true and that the cheapest seats will be the floor ones.

Good luck to everyone getting tickets!

I'm feeling the same way - poor student, and I'll go either way (oh, i woudln't miss it!) but i'd rather spend the 40 towards tickets or merch or something, rather than membership. I don't think it's stinginess.
