What would you part with for U2 tickets?
« on: June 22, 2011, 03:00:34 PM »
Back in 2000, a NYC radio station held a promotion to see what people would part with, or give to see U2 at Irving Plaza (a 1000 capacity venue).  The person who ultimately won gave up a car.

To see U2 in a small venue or any venue for that matter, what would you part with for a pair of tickets?

A truly small venue versus something like a stadium is a huge difference for me.

250 tops for a good ticket to an arena show.

I have already parted with a lot. 3 1/2 years in a job with the sole purpose of meeting U2. A new job and house I instantly gave up when a tour was announced, because the new job wouldn't let me have the time off.

What I wouldn't part with.. my U2 collection. Odd I know ;D
