U2 to begin world tour in Barcelona on June 30

U2 will be touring in support of their new album. They'll be playing stadiums, which is not the greatest, but it sounds like they are going to have a really cool stage (as usual) in the center of the stadium. Also, the ticket prices are low with "with the floor seats -- the closest to the stage -- the lowest priced. In fact, playing larger capacity venues allows for more conservative pricing overall. Field level is going to be $55, and there will be 10,000 tickets a show, every show, at $30. The price points are $250, $90-$95, depending on the market; $55 and $30." Thank you, U2!

They'll be hitting the states in the fall and then again next summer. I doubt they'll be hitting Richmond but you can count on DC and maybe C'ville as a long shot. I would definitely like to go to this one, especially at those prices.
