Why can't I buy tickets for U2?????

[ #23375 ]

48,984 tickets for the last concert in the tour.

You can buy tickets at FNAC... if you have their client card...

You can buy tickets at BP gas stations... if you have their client card and at least 1,300 points in it...

You can buy tickets at the stadium... if you are a member of the club and have a life seat...

You can buy tickets at other places... if you their client...

FFS, with all these places selling tickets (and each of them has a number of tickets assigned to it), will there be any tickets left for the common mortal???

I'm not making myself a client of any of those places just to buy tickets for U2. Actually, I will probably stop buying things in any of them if I don't get a ticket because of this [1]!!!

It's just not fair! I know I'm not an official member of the fan club, but I do own all of their cds! I really enjoy their music! Is it fair that I can't buy a ticket now just because I don't like being commercially attached to a brand/company? I am *not* giving my address and personal details just to buy a ticket! I'm buying my ticket someplace else and I will boycot all those places if I don't manage to do it!!


[1] - Not that I buy anything at the stadium, but they have a mall.

  • Can you not buy them online or are you looking for somewhere you can get them with cash?
    • All the places where you can, allegedly, buy them online, are down.

      I just spent almost an hour in ATM machines, because starting from 14:00 you could buy them there. There were lines in all of them. No one could buy the tickets because the system would eventually return a "due to connections problem we were unable to process your request" kind of problem.

      When somebody finally got the part where he could buy the tickets (at about 14:30), he got a "Sold out" message...

      Sold out!!!!!!

      • Strange,google brings up a rake of sites when I search for u2 portugal tickets and they seem functional but then I didn't go very far into the ticket buying process as I don't want to risk accidently buying one.
    • Oh, and the gas stations? They don't have the tickets being sold yet, but a guy from a station started noting down how many people would go there just to ask about it.

      200 people in an hour!!!
