U2.com sent out another e-mail to their members earlier today in which they state the following:
“As a U2.Com subscriber you can use your unique code sent in our earlier email to buy four tickets for shows in ONE of the following countries – Ireland, France, Spain, Holland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Austria, Poland, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Portugal.”
… so, if your country happens to have more concerts than one (France and Germany for example), you can supposedly buy 2 tickets for the one gig now and 2 for another within the same country when they go on sale. (Paris / Nice. Gelsenkirchen / Munich) Or can you?
In the same e-mail, the advice from Ticketmaster states:
You can only purchase up to 4 tickets for a single show of your choice.
Poor communication has been the main reason for the current confusion and uproar over U2 ticket sales. So much heartache could have been prevented and could still be prevented if only the information was loud and clear. Whoever’s in charge of this, it’s time shift professional gears. The days of the Dandelion Market have long gone.
And for those of you buying tickets today: we think it’s best to stick to Ticketmaster’s advice.
