hi guys of course I cannot wait for the tickets to go on sale either!!!!


And I haven't been 'sad' enough to subscribe to U2.com I'm afraid...


So a question for all of you who seem to know everything [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img] do you know if they'll only announce the dates on the site, or if you can buy tickets trhough the official website too?? Or is there any official/recommended website to buy REAL OFFICIAL tickets?? You see, I'm in Italy.... and there have been websites selling tickets for quite a few days already, but I wasn't sure about them, as the dates hadn't been announced officially yet.... and they are selling them for 390 !!!!![img]smileys/smiley11.gif[/img] So is there a way to know which is the official price as well????


I'm afraid it was not one, but a few questions... [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]


Thanks for your help!!!!!

well i found those sites a while ago too..i was damn confused and scared!!they were selling for 180 yos when i looked [img]smileys/smiley19.gif[/img]but tomorrow its buying on u2.com i think, but they are working thru ticketmaster. if ya havent subscribed then ticketmaster is the site to use - dont go for those gimmicky ones, pretty sure they are just buying in loads of tickets to sell at ridiculous prices..they may never even get the tickets so stay safe as they say in the states [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]


[img]smileys/smiley4.gif[/img]I am going to explode when i see them [img]smileys/smiley4.gif[/img]

Una cant you get one of them pre-paid ones? We have those in Italy. Quite a few of them, like... I have one from the Post Office, you buy it there and go to the Post Office everytime you want to put money in it, and it doesn't have to be linked to a bank account. Only the money you put in there is actually there, and there are no expenses, it's totally free. It's fantastic for the Internet 'cos it's as valid as any other Visa card, but if they somehow get your number, they can't steal more than what's in there (it'd be much more dangerous if it was linked to a bank account).... which, in my case, is never much!!!!![img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]


They are also completely free to get.... go get one girl, ifyou can!
