U2 For A Song

U2 returns to NZ in November... with tickets from only $40! The band plays Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium on November 25th as part of its 360 degree tour.
The new stage structure with a raised platform lets punters see the action from all sides, hence why the tickets start at just $39.90 (promoters say 54% of the tickets will be under $100).
The set includes a 45m-high four-pronged steel structure, dubbed The Claw. With a cylindrical video system, interlocking screens and rotating bridges, the stage will allow full view by all fans no matter where they are seated - this is something the industry has been trying to figure out for some time.
The 360 degree tour has earned $400 million globally already, and last year the band grossed $182m, making it the world's highest-earning band.
Mt Smart Stadium has already started installing extra seating, which will also be used for sports crowds and the Bon Jovi gig on December 5th. U2 tickets go on sale Friday September 3rd. - at that price, they will be gone in minutes! And, although not confirmed (yet), there's space on its touring schedule for U2 to play a second Auckland concert...

PS: 05 Sept.2010 - After tickets sold out in under an hour, a second show has been confirmed in Auckland on Friday, November 26th at Mt. Smart Stadium. Tickets go on sale this Thursday, September 9th.
