MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The University of Minnesota is all ready for the much- anticipated performance of Irish rock band U2.

The concert will take place Saturday at TCF Bank stadium as part of the band’s 360 Tour. They’ll perform in front of more than 58,000 fans.

And if you think you there are no tickets left — you’re in luck: there are still some available and they start around $100.

Mike Nowakowski, President of Ticket King, said $100 is a reasonable price for a concert like this.

“What’s so neat about this is, it’s more than just going to see U2 — it’s an actual event. I don’t know if you’ve driven by TCF, but it looks like somebody landed a UFO. The stage is unbelievable.”

If you have a little extra cash to spend you can purchase best-in-the-house tickets for $475.

“It’s not like going to the Xcel Energy Center where you can get seats that are really close to the stage. With a stadium show, just being there is the main focus,” said Nowakowski.

At a show like this, even watching from the second deck isn’t a bad view.

According to Nowakowski, if you can get in the first 10 or 15 rows of the second deck — by the stage — it’s ‘awesome.’

“From what I understand there is a big laser show that takes place above the stage. It’ll be quite a spectacle.”

The stage is one of three $25 million traveling stages the group uses. So, with the combination of the band, the music and the effects, the concert is sure to make for a “Beautiful Day.”
