U2 drummer Larry Mullen is hoping that American fans will forgive them for the snafu in ticket sales.

Mullen has posted an open letter on the band's Web site offering refunds to members of U2's subscription service. Members were supposed to get first crack at tickets for U2's upcoming tour but that did not work as planned.

``The idea that our long-time U2 fans and scalpers competed for U2 tickets through our own Web site is appalling to me,'' he writes along with an apology.

Mullen also adds, ``By the way, a note to those so-called U2 fans who are quick to accuse U2 of unseemly behavior, I've only got two words for you.'' The letter ends there.
