U2’s upcoming Australia and New Zealand tour will introduce the roll-out of new ticketing technology.
Ticketmaster and Live Nation have announced that the floor tickets for all New Zealand and Australia shows will be paperless. Fans will be sent their tickets digitally to their mobile devices 72 hours before each show.
The paperless ticket will ensure that ticketing vulture sites won’t have enough time for their scalpers to go go offload tickets onto the market at inflated prices.
U2 ticket sales details
Tickets for the NZ/AU shows go on sale on Tuesday 11th June 2019 (times vary per city). U2.com subscribers will have first opportunity to purchase tickets starting Tuesday 4th June through Thursday 6th June with a 4 ticket limit (see www.U2.com for details).
In a first for any artist performing in New Zealand and Australia, and to ensure fans have the best access, stadium floor tickets for all the band’s NZ/AU shows will be paperless with delivery via mobile devices 72 hours prior to the applicable show. There will be an 8 ticket limit for general public sales.
In Japan reservations for U2.com subscribers will begin on Tuesday 4th June. Pre-orders via PIA and ePLUS begin Friday 14th June, and general sale for both performances will begin Saturday 20th July. There will be a 4 ticket limit for subscribers and an 8 ticket limit for public sales.
In Seoul, the ticketing presale for U2.com subscribers will begin on Monday 10th June with tickets on general sale Wednesday 12th June. There will be a 4 ticket limit for subscribers and an 8 ticket limit for public sales.
