U2 UK Ticket update @ 11:37 pm

arcmorality:
I'm currently feelin: pissed off pissed off

Well it seems pretty concrete, if you've used up your 4 tickets in the presales, you cannot buy tickets in the general sale tomorrow.
If you've not used up your 4 ticket limit, you can buy tickets with another ticket agent. Just make sure you do not excede 4 tickets.

This includes mainland Europe/Ireland as well.

I got told this from ticketmaster on the phone, so have others.

If you ignore this, you WILL lose ALL your orders. If you need more evidence, phone them yourselves.

Thankfully I only bought 1 ticket in the presale.

They sure know how to fuck us about.

EDIT: What a farce. Ticketmaster Manchester are saying presales count, ticketmaster London are saying presales don't count. So basically nobody knows for sure now. So I guess its upto how everybody feels.. is it worth the risk? Unless TM can release a statement... I know for sure I aint buying my 3 other tix with TM!

you know what makes me the most sick about this? it's not going to stop the scalpers. they will get them anyhow. it's the fans who are fucked, and will be forced to turn to the touts.

Right. I don't know what they are seeking to accomplish by doing this.

I'd borrow someone else's credit card and pay them back.

i think this may be a flawed waya of trying to ensure everyone that wants to see them can. they have a lot of fans, like me, that have never seen them and want to just once see them. and while i don't think they should take away peoples chances of seeing them more then once (i mean i want to BE one of those people), i think they might be trying to make sure that with the limited dates people GET to see them. atleast once. everyone should have a chance to see them atleast once.

like i said, i know this is flawed, and especially since it's restricted to the UK, but i do see some logic to it, i just think it won't work as they planned, and it's a good way to piss people off. but i think they might actually see the value of it. just my thoughts.

I've seen this for gigs where I've bought 8 tickets before and never had a problem. Doesn't mean it won't happen I suppose but I'm not sure if its legal to impose that on a free market!
