    Anyone else get a standing ticket for this and have problems getting a printed e-ticket. It didn't say it was a ticketless gig but no option at moment for printing a ticket from the App.


    Print at home tickets are not available ,its mobile entry only .
    You can get paper tickets sent out if you wish .

    They've always had stadium rock aspirations and haven't really hidden it.

    That plus a big bag of money I reckon.

    Nah, I think Jimi Hendrix supporting the Monkees was a lot worse lol.

    They cannot rely on album sales, they've a studio they've not long finished which was probably not a small investment. A big wodge of cash for doing support and possibly shifting a bit of merch would be a very tempting prospect.

    What Bon Jovi fans like Manics and vice versa? Like putting on Tool and Spice Girls on the same bill. Really pissing on their fans who couldn't get Olympia tickets.

    slane 2004

    Iggy Pop and the Stooges
    Madonna (headliner)

    My guess was women being able to drag an unwilling partner along.

    Unlikely that was their intention, but if you're that butthurt about it then write them a strongly worded letter.

    Don't forget that the Manics have had several anthemic chart hits so it would not be in the least bit surprising for Bon Jovi fans to like them

    Another odd support was Paddy Casey supporting Pearl Jam or The Blizzards supporting ACDC

    2006?
    Paddy Casey had only just released Amen So Be It in 2000.

    Hey so managed to get two tickets on Viagogo, had never used it and then was terrified afterwards when I read such mixed reviews. Email this morning to say my tickets are being shipped to me today, just wanted to check if anyone else had received tickets yet if they asked for them to be sent out? After seeing people saying they got fake tickets I’m worrying a lot now!

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,069 ✭✭✭purple hands


    Nope


  • Registered Users Posts: 867 ✭✭✭laros


    I havent received them either

    A few from Generation Terrorists and a some hits and I'd say Bon Jovi fans would be happy enough.

    Same, surprised they were not the new paper ticket format.

    Just got a Resale Ticket from Ticketmaster (standing) so there's another one there if anyone's looking.


    Not entirely sure what a resale is.

    I think if you can't make the gig, you can put it back on sale? :confused: Their own version of Toutless?

    toutless do not let you sell above face. This resale thing lashes on another service charge and a handling fee.

    However the one I see at the moment is being sold below face value, so is actually cheaper than it would be. The ticket should originally have cost €61.30 including all fees. (€54.50 before fees). So the seller is losing money and ticketmaster get an extra tenner in fees. From what I see they also still get the original service charge too.


    Cost Breakdown
    Tickets 1
    €50.00
    Service Charge (inc VAT)
    €7.50
    Handling Fee
    €2.50
    Total to Pay
    €60.00


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,677 ✭✭✭Zwillinge


    The cost was what confused me and made me think of Toutless.

    I thought €60 seemed too reasonable as any other resale/Viagogo thing was always well above price.


    Thanks for the reassurance - half afraid I got swindled caused Ticketmaster in general :pac:

    Is your ticket a mobile ticket then? How did the transfer work?


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,677 ✭✭✭Zwillinge


    I got an order confirmation emailed from Ticketmaster with an Order Number for Reference.


    It has a breakdown of the costs for €60.


    How Will I Recieve My Tickets?
    If eTickets, they'll be emailed otherwise they'll be posted to given address.
    At the end of the email it states: "Once we've completed out checks, we'll be back in touch to confirm how you will receive your tickets."




    Waiting game now, I suppose. :o


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,677 ✭✭✭Zwillinge


    Have since gotten an email saying that my tickets will be emailed to me 3-4 days before the event.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21 pearl787


    I put tickets up for resale for a different show and got an email to say they were sold. However I won't receive payment for them until 10 days after the event, which is in July. (!) Very handy that they have this feature now as it saved me trying to sell the tickets myself.

    Seems strange that you wont get paid until after the event as I thought Ticketmaster cancel your tickets and issue the buyer with new barcodes .
    I cant see why they need to wait until after the event to pay you.
