looks like 35 - 180 for the UK, GA is 62 for Glasgow

Think the UK is dearer than US and EU.

Looks like the prices are $35 - $200 for US and Euro 73-190 for the eurozone

OK, but here's the real question; how much are GAs?

I believe the ones I got were $75 each, around $170 total for a pair with surcharges (these were for one of the Vancouver shows).

Reserved tickets for LA were $500 and change for the better lower bowl seats. Some decent deals could be had in the lower section in the back which went for $118, the extended Stage should get you some close face time. The best of the best lower level were not available, I'm assuming they were held back and or VIP sales.  Upper level were $315 if I recall and with the seats higher up and further back $118 and supposedely some for $45.

Tickets for GA in Glasgow were 61, which is fair enough. However, the best seats will not be sold in any presale in the UK, U2 have decided to artificially inflate the ticket prices and sell them through TM's Platinum seating website in General Sale only.

Prices for GA in London I can live with. Just over 60 with fees but sold out for all four dates. Prices for the seats, to me, are astronomical though. I just won't pay it. Very sad.

GA for Boston was $68, or $87.50 after taxes and fees. With this stage setup, an absolute STEAL in today's market.

I bought 90 seats and thought- these are amongst the most expensive gig tickets I have ever bought (in fact, Im sure they are) and yet that doesnt even get you a view thats central to the stage.
I posted elsewhere on this forum about how U2 have never felt more corporate than with this tour (and having two distinct shows on separate days makes me feel compelled to get tickets for the next night, yet the cost is getting ridiculous).

As with another post on this thread, I also noticed that ticketmaster were selling the London shows as "Hot Ticket Package" and that, from what I can see, seems like the only way to get the tickets that actually face the stage (at 180 or so).

I wouldn't pay $200+ for a ticket. GA is creeping ever so slowly to $100 per person...and you don't even get a seat :-) I get that they have to offset the low prices of GA and the very inexpensive $35 by having the best reserved tickets be expensive, but no way should they be more than the monthly payment on a family sedan. I've been to 8 shows, soon to be 9, and they are getting close to  pricing me out, a fan of 23 years.

For a populist band, $300+ for a single ticket to a  two hour concert is disgraceful. At that price, I don't think they are worth it. No band is worth that. There's no reason that the most expensive tickets can't be around $150, other than pure greed.

Thankfully I was able to get GA tickets, otherwise I would've tried for the crappy $35 tickets at the regular sale, and if that failed, just decided to stay home.

Agreed.
I looked at the venue plan, saw where all the expensive seats were and I wonder how much the band will actually enjoy the experience. Aside from the people screaming around their feet and up in the gods, all of the seats directly in front of them are going to be people paying corporate rates and showing little engagement.
