Okay this has to stop U2. Live Nation keeps releasing Platinum tickets for various US shows at incredibly inflatted prices. Just tonight the LA Rose Bowl 1 show has Platinum tickets listed in Section 3-H Row 1 at $1,950.00 per ticket !!! The face value is only $280 !!

What gives U2 ? Stop being so greedy Live Nation. 



As per ticketmaster


What are Official Platinum Seats?

Official Platinum Seats are premium tickets to concerts and other events made available by artists and event providers through Ticketmaster. They give fans fair and safe access to some of the best seats in the house.


Are Official Platinum Seats resale tickets?

No. Official Platinum Seats were not purchased initially and then posted for resale; they are being sold for the first time through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster's Official Platinum Seats program enables market-based pricing (adjusting prices according to supply and demand) for live event tickets, similar to how airline tickets and hotel rooms are sold. The goal is to give the most passionate fans fair and safe access to the best tickets, while enabling artists and other people involved in staging live events to price tickets closer to their true value.

Bono is a hypocrite. He says they can't control the resale market but he allows his promoters (ticketmaster which is owned by Live Nation) to only release Platinum tickets and they are selling these tickets at 1000% mark ups which is worse than any scalpers prices. Just boycott the tour.

2005: Problems with presale tickets. U2's fault.

2009: Problems registering with the NLOTH flavoured website. U2's fault.

2017: Ticket sites reselling tickets at marked up prices. U2's fault.


I never realised how many behind-the-scenes pies U2 had their thumbs in.
