The perennial Irish rock group U2 will play a second concert tonight in Barcelona's Camp Nou Stadium, home to the city's FC Barcelona football team.
Tonight's was an add-on show after a sold-out show on June 30, the actual first concert tour date on the 2-year "360-degree" tour schedule. Tonight's U2 concert is also sold-out.
90,000 tickets were quickly sold-out for the first show upon going onsale and the second add-on show, well, also sold out quickly. So much for economic crises, right? Tickets were sold anywhere from 150 Euros to 350 Euros each.
About $100,000,000 was spent on the 31-city world tour but it seems to be money well-spent as U2 concerts typically sell out.
A friend of mine - a member of the U2 Fan Club - had 2 tickets to sell to tonight's concert. HE WAS ONLY ASKING FACE VALUE for them, too! That's 45 Euros each, folks! Why didn't I buy them?!?!?
