The band are playing four November shows in Dublin and two in Belfast with the tickets going on general sale on Monday.

Paid up members to U2.com can buy some of the tickets beforehand though and those tickets went on sale today. But many fans reported problems when they went to buy their tickets.

Fans are given a code that can be used to buy presale tickets on Ticketmaster’s website.
