From what I've read, I think you were probably sitting next to people who paid $300 for just the ticket, so you got a pretty good deal!

I wasn't being sarcastic at all. I have one of those packages for Paris so was keen to see what was in it.

Thanks!

I don't understand.  How did you get all that for only $240 when some of us here paid $300 just for a ticket??  Where did you purchase it and what show is the ticket for?

It was the Denver show and it was at the end.  So don't be to upset.   I bought them from u2.com and like I said the 300 tickets were better tickets,  but I didn't know at the time I was going to be at the end.  Still a good deal but tickets were going from 100 the night before close to my seats.   The seating chart is a whole other discussion.   However I am excited to receive two of these.  My son who is 12 has now seen them 4 times and he loves the gift.  The vip prices were different at each venue I believe.

The $240 VIP tickets were at the arena ends, where you wouldn't have a great view of the big screen. Not sure if they were behind the stage or right on the e-stage. I thought about buying one but didn't - now I wish I had!

Thanks for the explanation.  Despite where the seats were it's a pretty good deal.  I didn't even know u2.com was offering it.  I should pay more attention!

So I've done VIP for other bands and really thought it was a rip. It was a way to get in the pit...but thought the gift would add to the value.  It did not.. Crappy poster, laminated tag, and not great t-shirt.
This looks so worth it. I would have been thrilled to have that stuff...
