U2 Should Make For a ‘Magnificent’ Concert

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.

WCCO’s Dave Lee Interviews Mike Nowakowski

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.”

    I saw U2 perform on the Joshua Tree tour in MA the night after Bono dislocated his shoulder at Boston Garden (which was their 1st venue ever in the US ) and with his arm in a sling the band kicked some serious butt. The support band was The Pogues. No worries mates! Go for it Norm!!

    I thought about going but, the ODC seats I found were WAY over priced. $275 for nose bleed seats. Tickets for this show were so over priced it was STUPID. I think i’ll stick to Steely Dan at the State Fair for $65.

    PAY YOUR TAXES IN IRELAND and Stop making money in the states….Bono is hipicritical D-Bag. whoever supports this ancient relic of bad music, needs some self reflection.

  • Jason Halloway

    Those ticket prices are low. This is the best event of any sort I have ever seen. Just a really amazing time.

    • Geoff

      $475 to see a band perform? I love U2 but that’s ridiculous. And Jason…the concert is tomorrow…

  • Rep. Michele Bachmann

    Guess you have never been to a Rush concert then have you. 35+ years strong and still putting out hits. Plus the fact they are NOT a commercial band.

  • Bonor

    Most overrated band of all-time.

  • KeepItReal

    Bono…claims to be about world justice, care for the less fortunate and yet still does Louis Vuitton ads. There can be no justice in the world, when people spend $4,000 on a hand bag.
