Question about presale
« on: March 08, 2009, 04:06:24 AM »
Hi everyone, i plan on seeing u2 this year in the states.

Do you buy presale through u2.com? .....I have been reading something about presale codes.

Does this mean they give you a code in which allows you to enter the presale sections of the ticketing sites to buy tickets?
reason i ask is that I was able to register for u2.com with an australian credit card, but i have heard that ticketmaster in the states doesn't accept australian credit cards... does anyone know if this is true?

I just want to see u2 damnit!

Not sure about the credit cards either. But for the last 2 tours I have gotten tickets through the pre-sale. U2.com emails you a code word and time and date of the sale. You have to enter the codeword to log on to the presale on the TicketMaster site. At least that was how it has been done in the past. They may change the rules this time around.

To get in on the pre-sale? Yes.

You are not guaranteed tickets, but it greatly improves your chances of getting them.

Not sure how it works for non-US events. Sorry. . . . I have had friends in the states buy through the presale for multiple US locations.

You can always do swapsies. I got eight tickets for Manchester on the Vertigo tour and swapped two for the Cardiff through one of the fan swap websites.
