Pre-order = pre-sale tour?!
« on: November 01, 2017, 01:22:30 PM »
Guys, help me out! I'd like to go to the record store and buy the new album, going by train with a big box of vinyl. But U2.com says the following:

Quote
PRE-ORDER SONGS OF EXPERIENCE IN UK, IRELAND, GERMANY, FRANCE, SPAIN, PORTUGAL, DENMARK, ITALY, & HOLLAND
Fans in these countries who pre-order the album by November 30th will have the chance to enter a presale to buy up to 2 tickets for the yet-to-be-announced 2018 shows in Europe. (You will receive a unique ticketing code, in early 2018. The presale will not open until 2018 and of course availability is while stock lasts. Please note: a code does not guarantee a ticket.)

A chance? So the code can also be not working?

It's not very clear is it. I am in Ireland, so woulda had to pay 23 for the deluxe CD inc postage. I pre-saved on Spotify, that was one of the options from the link. Does that mean I get emailed the code too?!

That's also confusing. :o I hope for you. Otherwise you should try to cancel it, and do it again

If you're a U2.com subscriber you get the first chance

THEN if you order a PHYSICAL copy of the album through the OFFICIAL site then you'll get a code that puts you in line after the subscribers

Unless they announce the tour before your code expires in January for example

That pre sale is on the same date? And if they announce it twice (first for one night, then for the extra nights) and for other cities (i.e. if yiu're trying it twice for the presale).

For example

Wednesday- U2.com presale
Thursday - SOE presale
Friday - General Sale

Question for the forum: when you entered your phone number and hit submit, did you get a verification text?

No, I didn't.
I feel my luck could change.
