They don't hide it, it's common knowledge and all above board. Ticktmaster and Seatwave are the same company. A certain percentage of tickets go on stub hub and are available to the highest bidder. The bands agree to this when they use Ticketmaster.

I don't like it, but it's fair I guess. If someone really wants to go and values it more than a random punter then they can get tickets.

Did anyone use the script to get tickets ? Worked a treat and worth a punt when they release the 2nd date in Croker and 3rd in Cork

I'd imagine only around 10,000 tickets were sold this morning with possibly 100,000 people looking for them.

 
Would they do this in other countries or is it just here they're allowed rob fans?
 
At least Dick Turpin wore a mask when he was robbing folk.



There was a pre sale last week for member of the website so you woundlt know the actual number that went on sale this morning . But if you said half I wouldn't be surprised

Ticketmaster engage in the exact same practices Pat Hickey was arrested for, on a mass scale

The 10 ticket limit per person was fooking hilarious.

Crookery pure and simple, this country's economy is based on it and nobody does it better.

seatwave is used in other countries around Europe as well, spain and france are notable ones. tried to get tickets for paris gig although wasn't on the ball at all and was too late to be picking up preferred tickets at face value. ex-ceo of ticketmaster has already said previously how ticketmaster hold back quite a large volume of tickets for straight sale on seatwave.

In fairness to Rock he's been banging the drum about ticket touting and stuff like this for a good while now. Not just hopping on the bandwagon

Supposeably the rolling stones had booked a date in Croke Park for this summer and U2s management were aware of this and only announced the one date and worked the other dates around this (travel arrangements making it impossible too add a 2nd Croke Park date) but The Stones backed out at the last min due too something and the 3rd Croke Park slot was never filled 

Heading too the show 2morrow looking forward too it, setlist and the stage looks great and its going too be special. Noel Gallagher and HFB supporting is a good bonus

Are they just playing The Joshua Tree? That is the only album they should be allowed play!
