I don't really want to repeat what other people here have already said too much, so sorry if you've already seen ten or so of these posts, but does anyone feel as if the bubble has burst a little bit? Maybe it's just me being oversensitive, but all these recent events, and me reading that open letter, have bought me down to earth with a heavy thud from my previous fandom bliss.
I mean, I got tickets, but I don't feel particularly brilliant for getting them. Maybe it's just me, I don't know. I'd just be interested to know how everyone else is feeling right now.

Bess, I know how you feel, totally. I got tickets(laame tix), but i felt so cheated, and so lame. I was up early, waiting, ready...and at 10:01 am no GA tix could be found? It was sad what happened today, too sad and upsetting. Mine aren't the ones I wanted, not the venue i wanted either.


*hugs*

yea i got tickets....i feel bad. Mine are in philly but they are in the 2nd level nosebleed....all the way up there....I feel bad but then again, I am a U2 memeber.....don;t you think my seats would be better?.....but I sound so selfish saying that because a bunch of people didn't get tickets :( but then again my moms friend got tickets behind the stage....which is just ridiculous.

I got the $96 ones too and I'm in the 204 section. Did you know that the 215 section is offstage? That happened to my moms friend....her seats are behind the stage where they aren't even being sold. I just can't see how $96 dollars for nosebleed is good. :/

She did it twice and received 219 and then 220..I used the half house one ( because thats how U2 did their "elevation tour")

By the looks of that map, they shouldn't even be selling that sections tickets.

I feel the same way. I've always loved U2's music and felt a special kind of connection with it. I felt like they were unique, like they were genuinely good guys who cared about their fans...I thought, 'Wow, I'm lucky to be a fan of a band that not only makes great music, but whom I can like as people.' Now I feel really naive. I still think Bono, Edge, Adam, and Larry are good people, but at some point you have to stop passing the buck to Principle Management, U2.com, and Ticketmaster -- when it comes down to it, U2 themselves have final control over who they associate with. No, I don't know who they could use aside from Ticketmaster, but I know they and their management could've done a lot more to not make this such a fiasco. I still think their music is great, but I feel like the magic is gone. Hopefully this is just a phase that will pass, but I still don't think I'm going to be able to bring myself to listen to any U2 for quite a while...I have a really sour taste in my mouth.

This is the first time ever (in fourteen years, or so) that I have made a conscious effort not to listen to U2. It's been a challenge not to delete my entire multi-gig U2 folder from my computer. That's how I'm feeling. I learned today that being shat upon by rock stars smells just as bad as being shat on by anyone else.

I'm sickened.

I tried to get into listening to U2 today. Worked for a couple minutes, and then it died. I don't know when I'll listen again. I'm sure for me this is a phase, but for now the hurt is fresh. This is a band that was practically my life support for months-- I depended on them (and their team), and thought I could always do so. Today proved me wrong....
