Ticket buying advice @ 12:32 am

wydok:
I'm currently feelin: anxious anxious

My wife and I are planning on going to the U2 Philadephia show in May, but I have a question that maybe some of you seasoned concert goers can answer for me. You see, I've never had to buys tickets to a concert this big before. Is it still customary to get in line the day before? Does one of us need to drive down to Philadephia Friday night to make sure we are in line for the 10am box office opening? We want to get General Admission Floor tickets.

There are other TicketMaster outlets much closer to us than Philly. Will going to one of them early Saturday morning be good enough? Do people still get in line the day before? Can I just log in to TicketMaster.com to get my tickets ASAP Saturday morning, or do you think the GA tickets will be gone in a blink of an eye and I will be SOL?

Obviously, the real answer should be that I should have signed up for the fan club to get in on the presale, but I can't change that now.

Anyway, anyone have any advice? Thanks :)

I don't know if I would trust going there and doing the walk up thing. It takes long. One of the other posters here in the community said she missed out on seeing U2 because the dumb ass in front of her took 15 minutes looking at the seating chart and by the time he left the concert was sold out. He probably did it on purpose, working for the scaplers. Remember there are millions out here using the net and phones... and it is much much faster. I think your best bet is doing what I had posted earlier today.

I don't know if I should try to get tickets tomorrow or just wait. I'll have two phone lines and two computers going, but that might not be enough.
