  1. Well I have no idea of how it works in Chile but my theory would be that since many “low-priced” GA tickets are subsidized by more expensive reserved seats maybe they have to really skew it in places like Chile since the majority of the tickets need to be far more cheaper for the majority of the people and the fewer well-to-do people (elites if you will) would gladly pay an arm and a leg for tickets. What would be more interesting is to see how many “cheap” tickets there are versus the expensive ones. I bet there are considerably more of them versus the Euro/American legs. (although despite my logical argument some jerk will now point out that the Euro leg was a stadium tour and that you can’t really compare apples and oranges and how they paid a lot of money to have shitty seats in Dublin and that they played Vertigo twice instead of 40 and now they’re bitter and will never goto a U2 show again)

  3. The stupidest ticket-selling i have ever seen!!!!

    its necessary to order a f***ing ripley card, in order to buy tickets.
    I signed in, order a damn card, havnt received the card and no confirmation per email, but can sign in on the page.

    what a stupid system. Great, thats a way to market a stupid card-system.

    not just that the tickets a friggin expensive, this system sucks.
    its all just a big commercial gimmick!!!

  5. I bought the tickets (well, actually my brother did).. after waiting for 8 hours!!! it was awful, the whole phone & internet system collapsed and the store sale wasn’t better.. you can tell that ripley has NO experience on this.. and people who live outside santiago couldn’t even get the tickets!!! it was just horrible, i hope DG MEDIOS AND RIPLEY don’t organize a concert NEVER AGAIN
