I'm currently feelin: shocked shocked

Hey guys,

I was looking for some tickets for the U2 tour in Brussel, Belgium, and it says on this site: http://www.budgetticket.nl/

It says they are:
249 Euro
174 British Pound
325 US dollars!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is this a joke or are the tickets of this show really this expensive!?

Or is this just because it's like a pre-order, that they are this expensive?

Sounds like a ticket broker (read: business savvy scalper)

most likely that is the site of a ticket broker/scalper. there are US dates already up on ebay for eye watering amounts.

Yeah, it definitely sounds like a broker. I checked a few broker sites after the presale ended, and the prices are just ridiculous:
ex) Madison Square Garden in NYC- $550-975 for GA.

They're not all as expensive as that.

I got tx for the Manchester UK gig - £50 each plus booking fee, £114.95 for two.

This was on the U2.com membership presale - the European link from U2.com to ticketmaster (Manchester, UK gig).

If you're not a U2.com paid member, it should be posted on U2.com when the general sale tickets are available (via Ticketmaster).

It sounds like one of the travel travel companies and the ticket prices include accomodation in a 2 or 3 star hotel and sometimes travel options as well

There are a load of these companies that advertise in the national Sunday papers here ..

U2 Ticket packages have been advertised as on sale for about 4 months now in these publications!
