Hello Hello!!

not to rain on anyone's parade... @ 11:21 am

I'm currently feelin: blah blah
I'm currently hearin: Honest Mistake - The Bravery

Sooo, the U2 pre-sale tickets for U2.com members are going to go on sale
tomorrow. First of all, I haven't signed up yet because it's $40 but it should
really be $20 because I am a Propaganda member but I have been too busy with
other stuff in my life to follow up when I didnt get my "propaganda letter" with
my discount code or something like that. And THEN, tickets are going on sale at
the very WORST POSSIBLE time for me, I am in a financial bind that I had to
borrow money to get out of so needless to say, no extra money for $40 U2.com
memberships and no $49.50 + service fees for San Diego tickets. Bummer. So today
I will listen to no U2 music to observe this situation. I really am mildy
bummed. Oh well it happens this way with me, some tours the timing is perfect
and I am able to see lots of shows or some (like Zoo TV) I am lucky if I get to
see one show on the tour. It looks like it is going to be this way on this tour.

Regardless, I think I will go to San Diego on the 28th and wait until
the end of the show where I hear scalpers will sometimes then let the ticket go
for like $20 rather than not get anything for them at all. I dunno. Anyway,
hopefully things will be better for the 2nd leg. Still not the same thing as
getting to see them on Opening Night in San Diego!!!

p.s. I know I only have myself to blame but I just wanted to vent my bummedness!

I feel your pain. The only thing getting me to see them this tour is my Visa card. "Hello Bank One, can I have more credit please?"

I tried to do the scalper thing in Boston last tour and they were still offering GAs for $100 when the show started, and GAs suck at that point cause you are at the way back. But there are a lot of great fans out there willing to sell their extra tickets for face all the way up to day of. We all want to sell our extras to fans, so I wouldn't fret too much. Stay away from the scalpers, fans have always come through if given the chance.
