Given the value of the pound is tanking against the dollar, in the future you and legions of other Americans will probably end up coming to the UK to see gigs - our U2 crowds are already international but they'll probably become more so now. Given I like international crowds this is not something I am going to complain about. And nor, I suspect, is an tha given his international tastes in cuisine (listed above) and the staff he hires
Well hopefully it doesn't tank too much for you guys! Who knows, with our current political state, we may very well have issues of our own with the value of our dollar!
I actually recently looked up what it would cost roundtrip to fly to Dublin from Chicago. It was less than $650 per person, which really surprised me since that's less than a trip to Hawaii (expensive). Definitely seems like a very doable trip for me within the next year or two. Taking in a U2 concert would just be a bonus.
