Let’s call it the ‘smoothest presale ever’. The first online presale of U2’s Fall tour tickets for former members of U2’s Propaganda magazine started today. These longtime fans are now finding the order procedure vastly improved. It’s still in progress as tickets for various dates get released throughout the day, but it sounds like most people were able to buy whatever type of ticket they want, GA or seated, with relatively few problems.
The service seems on par with or better than what subscribers were used to in the past, with Propaganda’s (paper) order forms. Your U2log.com editor effortlessly booked 2 GA’s for one of the ‘hot’ New York dates.
Which proves that all you really need for a quality service is for one pissed off drummer to get involved. Fair play to U2’s organisation and Ticketmaster for fixing what was broken.
