My thoughts too! Glad I saw Robert Palmer before his early demise. Ferry is playing San Antonio (where we'll see him) and Austin.

fingers crossed that I can get U2 tickets for Houston... I've signed up with the fan club so will get pre-sale tickets. I've never managed to see them live and I reckon it's about time to change that!

I looked at signing up, but didn't want to pay the $50. Probably a good investment if you really want to see them though. I'll chance it in the public sale on Tuesday, trying for tickets in San Jose.

Possibly Hayseed Dixie in Columbus Ohio, but the "convenience fee" is now nearly 25% of the so-called ticket price.

I've split the fan club membership with a friend so that we can both get tickets. So not a big deal really.

Got my U2 tickets!!

Definitely worth paying the $50 for fan club membership. I got great seats for less than I expected.

Ticketmaster are selling them now with a U2.com subscription, but it keeps coming back saying we were unable to process your request.

Also, why is Ticketmaster so bloody difficult. There are easier ways than finding out I'm not a robot thank clicking on numerous photos of store fronts...

Also, trying to buy Green Day tickets and it keeps saying Sorry there was an error with search (the bots haven't bought all the tickets yet, we'll let you in when there are none left).

you have to buy the U2 subscription from U2.com. Then you get a code to use when you buy from ticket master.
