(this post only makes sense if you read the one below it and the comments)
In the below post I mentioned paying $300 to see U2. This is not their fault. I think face value of my ticket was $85.
This is because ticket scalpers prey on people like me that TRY to get tickets for face value but only have the "scraps" (i.e. crappy seats in the nosebleed section) left to us after they have swarmed in and bought all the good seats.
I hate it, but I also spend very little money on myself, so when I do pay exorbitantly high prices on something, its always something that's worth it to me. U2 and Bruce are the only ones worth it.
NOW - with that said, I totally agree that the boys should throw a free concert or charge ONLY enough to cover costs. They have more money than they need. I'll run it by Bono, tell him Bond and Amulet had a great idea .....
Now playing: Maroon 5 - Not Coming Home
