U2 date set for Oct. 1, tickets on sale Friday

What Internet fan sites had rumored to be true was made official this morning when concert promoter Live Nation announced that U2 would play Scott Stadium on Thursday, October 1. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, April 3 at 10am. Tickets will be available at four different price levels: $32 for the nosebleeds, $57 and $97 to get closer, and $252 for the premium reach-out-and-touch-Bono variety.


And before anybody goes nuts the $252 tickets are for the RED charity Bono is involved with 100% of proceeds from the sale of those tickets go to charity.

JPJ is doing quite well, they have Metallica coming after all. But come on, dude, U2 is the biggest band on the planet! That ain't fitting into that little shoebox of a b-ball arena!

figures they come out the friday i DON'T get paid!!!

HMMM....Scott Stadium eh? What happened to our newly beloved John Paul Jones Arena??? Anyone? Anyone?
