Will Ticket Outlets have any tickets for sale?


With the announcement of 2 additional Dublin dates for U2 on 10th & 11th November comes the news that outlets will now be selling RESERVED SEATS only – NO STANDING (as the standing section is paperless).

General Admission (standing) tickets are Card Entry – what does this mean?
•    Fans buying floor sections will not receive a physical ticket. Think of the card used to make the purchase as your ticket. When you arrive at the venue, the venue staff will swipe your card at the doors and admit you to the standing section.
•    Regular ticket holders must also present a valid govt issued photo ID for the purchaser only.
•    Card Entry tickets are not transferrable. You cannot buy a Card Entry ticket as a gift for someone else. You can only buy a Card Entry ticket if you (the card holder) will be attending the event in person. If you buy 2 Card Entry tickets, your companion must enter at the same time as you.
•    There are NO EXCEPTIONS to these rules.

I am buying a Card Entry ticket and my card expires between purchase and the date of the show …
That’s fine, you bring the card used to make the purchase, regardless of whether its expired or not.

Will it be difficult to obtain tickets to these events?
We anticipate that demand will far exceed supply.

What can I expect when I log on to the Ticketmaster website on the morning of the sale?
There will be a queuing system on the website. If you are placed in to a virtual queue, please be patient and follow the on-screen instructions. If you are in a queue and refresh your browser, you will lose your place. Do not open multiple windows on your web browser.
