The top ticket price for U.S. shows is $280 US Dollars.
Compare that cost to the ticket prices in other places, based on the current exchange rate:
Vancouver and Toronto:
$280 Canadian Dollars = $211.47 US Dollars
186 Euros = $196.35 US Dollars
187 British pounds = $227.91 US Dollars
This is outrageous! In the U.S., the best seats will cost over $300 apiece, once the service charges are factored into the equation. And that's for seats that are going to be far from the stage, no matter where they are because they're in a football stadium, not an indoor arena.
One friend is disabled, and another is short, so we have to get seats. Since those people will be going to see only one show, they are willing to splurge. Anything in the $200 range would probably be doable, although it would involve some sacrifice. Obviously, they cannot afford to travel to places where the ticket prices are cheaper.
Sadly, it appears U2's management is bilking US fans.
