U2 Fans Beware ! Fake Ticket Scams

New York:   Ticket resale sites need to step up and remove listings for speculative tickets for the last few days a large amount of ticket broker sites have appeared selling U2 tickets.  Currently, the tickets are under Fan pre-sale until today 1/13 at 9 AM local time when the public can come in and purchase tickets. 

Fans should be aware that most of the venues are considered ticketless.  That means you buy the ticket via a credit card and you get access to the site via the same credit card.

Cutting down on the massive number of ticket volume brokers, which in the past have left fans having to go to a three party ticket broker and pay as much as 500% more than the listed price.   Just beware of all of the scams to get your information as well. Ticket drops from official radio stations can be a good way to get tickets, however beware.

U2 Fans Pre Sales Nightmare !

New York: The day could not get any worse for some U2 fans. Fans have been posting on social media there displeasure with the pre-sales ticket process.

This is nothing new almost for every single U2 tour fans have complained about the process and the way that Ticketmaster handles the entry to purchase and once again fans with pre-sales codes feel as if the system is rigged against them.  Can't speak for Ticketmaster however if your a long time U2 fan you know you get in early and you keep trying.

On the other hand if you have your tickets we would sure like to hear what city your going to see the show. Lets all be positive and enjoy the show #U2

New Album Delays Cuz US Election

New York:  Just the title of this story is going to piss off a few people. However, we say don't shoot the messenger!  We all expected that U2 would be releasing a new album by 2017 and heck it's only January so hold on for a bit.  What we heard is that U2 has confirmed via a Rolling Stone article that they have put the release of their new album Songs Of Experience on hold due to the election of Donald Trump.

The Edge points out that the world is a different place from when they started the project. The boys need a bit of reflection on how this album relates to going on within the world today; as we have reported that U2 has written most of the album during the early part of 2016.  

For now, we have a tour. Yes, we all would like a new album however long term U2 fans know that U2 does not release anything before its time.  Let's all ease back a bit and let the boys breathe for a bit.
