The more I think about the fact that I've paid over five hundred dollars for three less than stellar tickets for U2's Portland date, the more the taste in my mouth gets bitter.
Is any part of the ticket price going to one of the band's or Bono's charities?
I realize that U2 are the biggest band in the world right now and that everyone needs to get paid, but I think these ticket prices are ridiculous, not to mention the crap people with pre-sale codes had to go to.
I've see some of the greatest Rock and Rollers of all time including Bob Dylan, David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, and Eric Clapton and all my seats were ridiculously good and none of the ticket prices were that high. In fact the four tickets we bought in 1998 for the Rolling Stones (almost as good as tickets as we have for U2 this time around) were less than what we're paying.
I'm sorry, but the more I think about it the more upset I get about it.
