On Feb 4th and 5th the Irish Rockers U2 put tickets on sale for their highly anticipated 2005 Tour of the USA and Europe. Tickets were gone in less than one hour at all venues.

Some cities had up to 4 shows but tickets still sold out in minutes. David Boitano CEO of Ticketfinder.com states “Even we were taken back by the huge demand and speed at which the tickets were sold”. U2 has stated that the main floor will be all general admission standing and sold at a face value of $49.75 which was the lowest price ticket. First elevation tickets in most cities carried a face value of $165.00 with the upper level seats at $90.00 each. There were additional charges which include service fee, city or state taxes were applicable and delivery.

Now if you’re a U2 Fan and did not get tickets all is not lost. License and bonded ticket brokers such as Ticketfinder.com have tickets available. Typically brokers pay a premium well over face value to acquire tickets for their clients. The general admission standing floor tickets are priced from $275 - $350 with the lower level reserved seating going for $375 - $975 and upper level seats averaging $165 - $325. Prices varied according to acquisition cost, city, seat location and supply vs demand. The most expensive show so far is at Madison Square Garden which at this time only has one show scheduled but U2 has stated they will try and add more shows on the second leg of the tour.
