Pollstar numbers for 2017: U2 at no. 1
« on: December 29, 2017, 02:48:52 PM »
To be honest, I thought it would be Coldplay this year.

And U2 is #1 in total gross, total tickets, but #7 in average ticket price. So we can't realy complain. ;-)

Umm, excuse me. We can always complain. We're U2 fans.  ;D
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

I thought u2s ticket prices were getting ridiculous but look at some of the others. Some of them look like air fares ...!

When I joined the organization in 1983, it wasn’t part of the job description. That came much later.  ;)

Yeah! I could fly to London and back to see my SO for the cost of a Coldplay close floor seat!
