Keep checking in every 1/2 hour. They're doing ticket drops all day long, it seems.

Try everything & all suggestions.  App works better for some but didn't for me. 

Took me two frustrating days (red group) & 2+ hours each day ( & then throughout yesterday) - finally got my GAs (Vancouver) just now.  Totally brutal.  App didn't work today but closing browser, clearing history/ cache, relogin from U2.com page, then trying again & again (repeat above).  Then waiting forever w/ "searching for tickets" in browser - finally got them.  Totally relieved but unimpressed.  What a crap process for the fanclub.

The sad thing is, these are fanclub presales. It shouldn't be this freakin' hard.

TM is evil & ticket buying is the worst.  It would be proactive if U2 could demand a better presale system for fans - or somehow take it over for 2 days.

a) TM could easily "verify" purchasers with algorhithms (assess your buying/ selling habits) to see if one's a scalper/ tout or not. 
b) The Captcha bot is the worst. That would be defunct w/ a "verified" buyer system.

And now ( or just once for me) TM Captcha has an even worse "linear - pull the line" function that doesn't work at all.

yesterday, I tried for 5 hours straight before I finally got two GA tickets for Chicago.

Today at 2:15pm I tried and they came up on my first try, so I decided to buy two more. It seems like they are slowly releasing tickets to beat the scalpers?

I tried from three different browsers and via my mobile.  No discernible difference.  When I finally scored tix it was on my laptop.  Just FYI.  I agree with what others are saying:  I've never had this much difficulty during any previous U2 pre-sales.

Based on what I saw yesterday and what I have seen today, there were WAY more people in Wires than Red Hill.
