This summer my mom and I gathered all our U2 concert ticket stubs so we could determine how many shows we’ve seen in our 26 years of fandom.
Luckily we both had the stubs to our very first show in 1985 for The Unforgettable Fire tour. Take a look at what it cost to see U2 then:
$13.50!!! Notice there isn’t $75 of TicketBastard fees either! The Joshua Tree tickets were $19 and I guarantee you that in 1987 we bitched about how pricey they were. I won’t even tell you what we paid this summer in Euros to see them in Dublin.
Sometimes I feel like making a banner to take to a show that says “Bono how about a ride in the private jet I BOUGHT YOU??“
