Tickets for U2’s Irish concerts went on sale this morning and for some it didn’t go too well.
Diehard fans braved the weather and started queuing outside Dublin's 3Arena early last night, with an estimated couple of hundred of fans joining them this morning.
For others, it has gone something like this:
1. INITIAL EXCITEMENT
“Wait … what if I don’t get them?!”
Devices at the ready, cup of tea in hand and deep breaths.
Refresh … refresh … “what time is it? OH GOD! Is my internet working? Why isn’t it working?”
*Calls friend* “Is your internet working?”
You’ve made it! GO! GO! GO!
Click like your life depended on it.
“Why is this taking so long? LOAD TICKETMASTER LOAD!”

@LisaMcCupcake Mine has been saying 18 minutes for twenty actual minutes.— Louise McSharry (@louisemcsharry) September 14, 2015
“I’m NEVER buying from Ticketmaster AGAIN! That's it. Over. Done"
And breathe …
That one Facebook notification that confirms that one of your friends has already secured their tickets - AND they don’t even like them!
Waiting for the text from mam that says "we got the tickets" at 9am #U2Tickets— Kevin O'Brien (@KevinCork14) September 14, 2015
9. MORE RAGE
“Password? THAT IS MY PASSWORD!”
“Verification by Visa is the bane of my life”
@LisaMcCupcake I actually feel like crying.— Louise McSharry (@louisemcsharry) September 14, 2015
10. BACK TO EXCITEMENT
One new email from Ticketmaster.
*Cut to posting your success on Facebook like it was no bother at all*
“Of course we got tickets.”
Good luck out there guys and may the odds be ever in your favour.
It's proving to be a battle out there!
