When U2 announced their Ireland dates I knew there would be little to no chance of getting tickets.
U2.com sent out this email and kept me thinking: should I try???
They DID say: Don’t miss it……….
The pre-sales were last week and those tickets went quickly.
The seating capacity for the 3Arena in Dublin is pretty small and there are only four shows.
I had already used my pre-sale code back in December of 2015, so if I was going to try for tickets it was going to be during the public on sale Monday morning at 9am Dublin time.
That means 4am EST!!! LOL!
So, I read all the tips and tricks for the best chance to get tickets.
Set my alarm for 3:35am! (LOL!!!)
I turned on the laptop and desktop and waited.
I had one browser open on each computer for the Friday and Saturday Dublin dates!!!
At 4:00am I did the search for tickets and waited in digital line!! Watching the screens spin!
At 4:04am I got an email letting me know I was going to the 11/27 show!!!
Then at 4:22am I got a second email letting me know I was going to the 11/28 show!!!!
So, I could go back to sleep at 4:30am for two hours right?!
HA! I was too excited to sleep!!
Monday night I went to my travel agent to book my trip.
Yes, I know I could do it myself, but I’m old fashioned and have been using the same travel agent for 20+ years!
Have been reading other fans stories about how they were able to get tickets and the emotions that come with waiting for the on sale. This story made me laugh:
It’s been fourteen years since my last visit to Dublin!
Feeling very lucky and happy!!!!
