    they release about 5% for presale I'd say

    I disagree tbh. I think they release the whole lot. You very often hear of people going on for the general sale and nobody getting any.

    From checking every now and then, earlier it was just top tier tickets available - now the top 3 tiers available. Slowly but surely the cheaper ones will become available I reckon

    It's more like 5% are released for general. They want you buying the fight club sub so it's marketed as pretty much your only chance of tickets.

    Block 223 here. Had a bit of heartbreak at the start. Managed to snag a couple $405 tickets and then had two $305 in the basket afterwards.

    I had 4 x $305 tickets but when I went to pay galway didn’t come up as an option so put in Dublin and it was declined. Tried mayo on other device and went through?? I dunno.

    Exact same happened me, got 3 tix on PC fine by putting in Mayo instead of Galway but got declined doing the same thing on the app

  • Registered Users Posts: 584 ✭✭✭Burkie7

    You could ring bank and check it. I got a text after ordering to check valifity of the purchase from visa at aib as it came up as strange.


  • Registered Users Posts: 584 ✭✭✭Burkie7


    Everytime I try and get the other price tickets it just comes up oh no another fan has got it other than the 2500 one.

    Anyone know anything about this "flash seats" thing. Tried installing the app but only available in USA and Canada it says. There's surely a workaround?

    Flash just means print at home?

    Other way around, its just digital or e-tickets through the flash mobile app.

    I've only just gotten the order confirmation from AXS so far, nothing from Flash Seats...


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,795 ✭✭✭dulux99


    Ok that's grand. As long as we're in the same boat!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,663 ✭✭✭JoeyJJ

    I joined about 10mins before 6pm


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,882 ✭✭✭sc86


    i joined que at 1 min past 6
    went into 550 seat tickets
    got 3 straight away in section 19


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,795 ✭✭✭dulux99


    Yeah to be honest I don't think the 'waiting room' was a que at all...I know people who were in the que before me and got offered nothing. I think alot of it is down to your broadband speed.

    I got through quicker via my phone than my laptop both over wifi.

    57 usd charge per ticket - some scam between that and joining fight club


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,663 ✭✭✭JoeyJJ


    I got through quicker via my phone than my laptop both over wifi.

    I joined queue 20 mins before my wife about 18 mins. I got in 3 mins before her. I got tickets, she didn't however was tickets available after. Seems lots of people went in and didn't take what was first offered releasing them back into queue for people behind also.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,663 ✭✭✭JoeyJJ


    I'd try queue 35 mins before and get ready for it.

    Hi all, I'm not a usual poster here (but read regularly). Just a FYI for those wondering about accessing tickets. I managed to get through to AXS USA. They were able to set up my flashseats account. I can now see my tickets. There are two options for entry from here.

    1. Download the flashseats app (which I can't see to locate on the playstore on my phone) and scan a code on entry
    2. Simply swipe the credit card used to buy the tickets upon entry.

    If you don't receive the email from flashseats you can contact AXS on a US number +1-888-929-7849 and they will set the account up for you

    Hope this helps

    Cheers pal - was the only way of contacting them, to call them?

    As an aside to this, has anyone gotten the flash seats email yet? Or will we all have to spend the price of a ticket calling the American number!!

    I rang the number and eventually got thru to a rep that said my order was completed & everything is fine on their end, I mentioned Flash Seats and she said not to panic and that the tickets will be delivered later
