that's bullshit that 61% did not get tickets, what the hell is the point of paying $40. for those who didn't get tickets today, keep trying until the general sale day. could be they are releasing them in batches.

I would like to qualify my answer by saying, yes, I did end up getting tickets, but they are definitely not the quality of tickets I expected from a fan club-only pre-sale.

I know I should be thankful when there are fans out there that were not even able to get any, but I still can't help feeling really disappointed. I really wanted to see this show, but I just cannot believe the best I could get was the top level of the arena.

Just wanted to add my two cents to the sentiments already expressed in this community today. Thanks to everyone for sharing their thoughts about this mess.

i feel the same way. when you shell out $40 for membership and you are logged on at 10am for fan presale and you get the message no GA tickets available, something seriously is wrong.

I got the same message at first, but I redid a search and it presented me with 2 GA tickets. Sigh this whole day has been a mess.

I tried to get GA seats to the NYC show, but that was totally sold out by like 10:03. I had a chance to get section 126, row 24 for one of the jersey shows. i didnt want 160 dollar tickets, but i've never seen them and wanted to so badly so i bought em. but if i can get 2 GA tickets when they go on sale next week (which i doubt)i'll sell these on ebay. i was pissed originally but looking at how some people didn't get anything at all i guess i got lucky. this is such crap though, what a rip off.

I did get tickets, eventually, but they certainly weren't what I was expecting. $100 tickets in the nose-bleed seats? I could have done that without paying $40. Probably could have done better.

I wasn't even trying for GA, I just wanted good seats in the front section.

I can't really vote on this. I spent an entire hour trying for 26 May in Boston and failed, but my friend got himself and I seating tickets for 24 May in Boston.

Still desperate to get 26 May GAs. Off to the presale I go ...

More than half the u2.com members did NOT get tickets...That is unforgivable...If the numbers were closer 10% not getting tickets, that I would consider sad but understandable...but more than half...unbelievable!
