EdgeFest, you going to the Toronto show? Just curious. I am planning to the Vancouver one in Oct.

Yes.  We're in Saskatchewan here so it's a trek... :p

I hope they do a prairie show next year, we'll be there too.

Hey everyone, just now decided to register after getting fed up with the annoying official board.

I'm going for Chicago GAs too!  Good luck to the other Chicago area people!

Got 2 GA's for Toronto!! I'm so pumped! It took about 6 or 7 times of trying because I think ticketmaster was getting over loaded and I was freakin' out - but in case this happens to the B and C level guys - don't give up, just keep refreshing or keep using the U2.com link.

Good luck!

i wish we could be done with them faster. Those "convenience" charges are a joke. Why do we pay those and an order processing fee? I only had one choice of place to buy a ticket, so shouldn't I get money back for an inconvenience fee?

Yeah, no doubt, I was pretty pi**ed when I saw that my two $57 tickets in Toronto turned into $142 after that convenience BS. Total rip off by ticketmaster once again.

Yeah, when roughly 20% of what you pay for tickets is the privledge to use the only horse in town, it sucks. The tax was cheaper than any of the fees by a mile! I thought people were supposed to complain about taxes!

The service charges are too high.  10.20 a ticket plus another charge I can't remember.  insane!  made my 110.00 price for two tix raise up to 140 before I was done.  Can't believe Ticketmaster still gets away with this. 

Oh well, at least U2 is looking out for the little man with most of the pricing tiers. 

I think this presale was smooth besides the ticketmaster garbage, but that is not u2's fault.  It is Eddie Vedder's fault for failing to get Ticketmaster declared a monolpoly.  J/K.

Yeah, I think U2 tickets are a fair price to see such an enormous band. But after years of buying from ticketmaster, I never get used to the surcharges. Isn't capitalism grand?

When will they announce all the info for west coast ticket sales? On U2.com the dates of the Phoenix, Las Vegas, and LA shows aren't confirmed yet. I'm getting nervous. I need to see one of these shows.
