Usually a week or 2 before the date.

We only paid for them in March - why the rush?  ::)

I might have to be restrained from yelling at the Ticketmaster people in London when I finally am able to get them.  Are there laws in London about verbal harassment?  If so how strictly are they enforced?  I'm only half-kidding by the way.   ;)

A fan on U2.COM said that she was was notified the other day that her Wembley tickets for the 14th had been posted.She also said that the tickets for the 15th hadn't been printed  :o

 I don't see why the tickets couldn't have been printed & posted earlier  ???

It says on my Ticketmaster order that my ticket for the 14th has been dispatched. Still hasn't arrived as yet.

I was expecting to receive my tickets soon but now my ticketmaster account says this:

"Your tickets will be held at the venue collection point. Please see the relevant venue page for more details."

I'm travelling from an another country (Findland) so this makes me a little bit worried. Any experiences how to collect tickets for Wembley shows?

Has anyone received their Wembley tickets yet?

My 15 August tickets were dispatched by Ticketmaster on Friday, but I don't have them yet. I'll start getting worried if I don't have them in the next day or two!

And I just saw that Ticketline says that they're dispatched their tickets today - so hopefully my 14 August tickets will arrive soon too...

I have to pick mine up at Wembley on the day of the show.  Freaking pathetic.

Did you order yours from Ticketmaster? I see that they posted your tickets on Friday and you got them yesterday - they posted mine on the same day, and they still haven't arrived. Am getting slightly worried...

Mine aren't here yet, either, but I am across the Atlantic from Ticketmaster UK.

We received the tickets for Saturday - which we ordered from Ticketline.  They said they'd be dispatched a week before the event.  I received an email from TM saying they had been dispatched this Friday just gone and nothing has arrived yet! ???  The Friday tix were club pre-sale.  Obviously being able to buy them in advance doesn't mean you actually receive them in advance!
Title: Re: U2 Wembley
Post by: AliSPNfan on August 04, 2009, 10:27:22 AM
I got tickets in the pre-sale for the 14th through TM and didn't buy tickets for the 15th until last month.I thought that I would get tickets for the 14th first but nothing is ever straightforward with TM  is it?  ::)

You are Wembley 1 aren't you Nielsen?

It would seem, for some very strange reason, that Wembley 2 are being received before 1! Who could possibly know why?! The great mysteries of Ticketmaster.   ???

Don't worry, I'm sure you'll have them soon!

I think it depends on where you bought them from.

I got my Wembley 1 tickets from Ticketline: they were posted on Monday by regular mail, and arrived yesterday.

But I got Wembley 2 tickets from Ticketmaster: they were posted by secure courier last Friday, but they only arrived today.

Thankfully all here now, so am quite relieved!

Has everyone who is going to Wembley #1 and who purchased their tickets through Ticketmaster actually got their tickets yet? 'Cos I'm still waiting for mine :(

Tickets don't look bad! Not as good as the PopMart ticket (which my dad kept after all these years) but still looks great!

Yeah, I still have my Wembley PopMart ticket. Thought I'd lost it but it turned up the other day! They were pretty cool.   8)

I was expecting that these would be customised in a similar way but looks like they are just standard tickets for the venue. Shame, would have been more special to keep if 360fied!   :o

Anyway, just chuffed to have them now. Glad yours finally arrived Nielsen & Ed. You can relax now!    :D

My Friday tickets finally arrived yesterday, via Royal Mail Special Delivery (what happened to the courier and how did it take 4 days tome come via SD???)  Anyway I've got them and am very happy.

I got this email from ticketmaster yesterday:

Due to production and price changes for the event, the seats you have purchased are no longer available, though Ticketmaster have secured alternative, equivalent seating for you.

Your new seating location is now available for you to view online via your My Ticketmaster account.


and it seems the good view I had before has been replaced - with me now being seated 'behind' the stage.

Hmm!  ??? Anyone know wtf is going on here?

I would ask for a refund and buy tickets off ebay , they are still going for a fair price !
Title: Re: U2 Wembley
Post by: morph on August 06, 2009, 07:05:39 PM
Not that cheap though - I bought 2 for 78 originally. I'm more miffed that the ticket agency (or was it the U2 organisation?) had the audacity to say "oops! Sorry, we've decided to move you to crap seats because we've realised we could sell the ones you originally bought could be sold for a higher price".

It's a bloomin' scandal!

Forgive my ignorance but why on earth would Ticketmaster do this?!?!?

I'm not entirely sure - as far as I can see there have been no "production and price changes for the event".
