U2: Verified Fan Explained

Tickets to U2’s eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour on sale November 20th

In an effort to keep tickets out of the clutches of bots and scalpers, U2 is implementing Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan system to ensure that tickets purchased on November 20th for the band’s North American eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour are purchased by actual fans.

Anyone planning on purchasing U2 tickets on November 20th will need to register by Saturday November 18th at 10pm PST
you can register here:
https://u2.tmverifiedfan.com/

Just in case you missed that, let me say it again:

Here is what you need to know: 

What is Verified Fan?
Verified Fan essentially means that you need to register to prove that you are an actual human. As it pertains to U2, it means you need to sign up by November 18th to become eligible to buy tickets on November 20th when the tour goes on sale.

How do I register?
You can register here:
https://u2.tmverifiedfan.com/
Signing up is free of course and it takes about two minutes… no really, I just did it.  You sign up, give ’em your cell phone number and you’ll get a text with instructions and a follow up text with a code… That’s all.
With just two text messages you will have access to the wonderful world of bot-free ticket purchasing. Ticketmaster won’t give out your number, and you won’t receive any marketing texts from them ever, unless you request them.
However: You need that code to buy tickets on November 20th

Why is this a good thing?
Because bots and scalpers are bullies, and they’re buying the good seats and selling them for a mark up. And October was National Bullying Prevention month… did you even know that?
And because this should be the future of ticketing. And we need folks to register for this to work. And we need you, the media, to alert everyone.
So let’s make sure that everyone knows:
Anyone planning on purchasing U2 tickets on November 20th will need to register by Saturday November 18th at 10pm PST

Can anyone buy tickets on November 20?
Yes! But only if they register as a Verified Fan by November 18th, 10pm PST.
You can register here:

Can you register and not buy tickets?
Yes, just go ahead and register. No one will force you to buy a ticket later.

Can you buy tickets on November 20th if you haven’t registered?
NO!
I knew you weren’t paying attention… You need to sign up because we want to make sure that these tickets aren’t getting into the wrong hands. It really bums us out when we see tickets online for ten times their face value. And it really, really bums us out when fans show up at the venue with fake tickets because they didn’t buy them through the proper channels.

Is this different than Paperless Ticketing?
Yes, very.
For one thing, Paperless Ticketing is not yet legal in New York.
Also, there are a few pitfalls with paperless ticketing that we’d like to avoid… For example, you buy 4 U2 tickets like a good friend does, and then your sister decides to get married that day and you have to miss the show. Your friends should still get to go to the show, right?
Things happen, we get it.

Does registering guarantee you’ll get to buy a ticket?
No. This is an arena tour, which is like a club show when you’re the biggest band in the world, so it will probably sell out.
Also, if you aren’t a human you won’t get the code. Oh and if you’re attempting to acquire thousands of codes for each city, Ticketmaster will notice and they will unfriend you.
You can buy up to four tickets per show with each code, while ticket availability lasts.

If you are a U2.com subscriber do you need to register?
Yes! You have a different window, a very special window at the front of the line. You should go here for specific U2.com subscriber information:

Do it now! U2.com subscribers deadline for the Verified Fan registration is November 12th.

Do you need to register if you’re a Citi Card member?
Also yes!
Citi Card members have until November 14th to register.
And guess what? You can register here:
