If U2 don't use their power to leave LiveNation completely and run their own ticketing or a less scummy unfair evil system when their deal runs out, they should be disgraced.

Read today some upper deck tickets are priced at 325 USD.

That is an absolute joke of a price if true.

Terrible greed.

I have a definite walk-away price point where I am just going to say "not worth the effort". It may be sad to 'miss a tour' but I'll survive it.  :|

Sensible approach...sadly bands and promoters play on extreme fandom and know people will pay and will continue to keep pushing prices up as long as they can

I guess I was lucky to walk away with two tickets for a total under $200. I'm used to crazy fees and taxes but $44 is ridiculous. If mine had that fee I would have walked away.
