Lastminute.com ticket chaos at U2’s Glasgow show

We have received word from our correspondent in Glasgow that ticket-agency Lastminute.com have as yet failed to deliver their sold tickets to the Hampden Park box-office and apparently won’t be able to do so before gates open. Fans affected will now lose their spot in the GA-queue. Lastminute.com so far refuse to provide refunds to their customers.

  1. One could argue that ordering at a site called LastMinute equals trouble…..but it’s a terrible thought not to be able to get in when you’re already in line!

  3. Anyone who buys tickets from touts deserves this kind of trouble.

    I wish that fan sites would refrain from reporting stuff like this–it comes across as whiny and makes it look like U2 is somehow to blame.

  5. They are a reputable firm. Their agencies are all over the UK, and you can’t really go anywhere without being reminded of their overbearing presence. I agree, however, that the name lastminute is very aptly chosen.

    I don’t know whatever happened to my ticket. Hopefully it made someone happy. Not me though, the realisation that the spare ticket I could now not sell made this show a £100 experience kind of grates and actually influenced my enjoyment of the show.

    Bono did his best to make up for it though, by being a total poser for my camera. It’s funny how there’s a sign saying “no professional cameras” and when you point a fat Canon in his face, he really goes for it. Hopefully some of these pics will actually come out, because the thing with the backlight makes it a bit awkward.

    To come back to lastminute. The only reason I booked my ticket through them is to avoid Ticketmaster pulling my Dublin tickets.

    At least when you go with the scalpers you get good service when you splash out £100 for a ticket :-]

  7. Lastminute.com are a nightmare to deal with, you buy tickets and when they don’t arrive they refer you to a customer service facility in India. Where the staff just keep agreeing with you and offer no suggestions as to how to remedy issues. I bought tickets for Twickers and they literally arrived last post on Friday fopr a gig on Sunday. The slightest hiccup would have meant they would have sat in a sorting office for the weekend.

    The liars told me the booking reference would have been enough to get me in had this been the case.

    Never deal with them.

  9. I know two people who turned up at Hampden Park in Glasgow (21st June), and waited in line for over an hour to get their tickets. But when they finally got there, they were told that their tickets had been lost, so they didn’t get in. They were very upset and had to go home without seeing U2.

    It is disgraceful!
