If you’re one of the many anticipating the U2 summer tour- U2360 – then pay attention, because the best seats in the house are being auctioned for charity.
Up to 600 stage-front tickets per concert are being sold via the charity-style partnership with the Global Fund, which helps fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
“All of U2’s income raised from the auction of Red Zone tickets will be donated to charity,” says a U2 spokeswoman.
The “RED Zone” VIP tickets include: A special VIP entrance and greeting by (RED) Zone Hosts; high profile general admission areas on the field adjacent to the stage runway; built-in seating for pre-show comfort; access to special concession and merchandise stand; and as a special bonus, the top 10 highest winning ticket bids for each show will also receive a pre-show backstage tour.
(RED) Zone Packages are only available by Auction on ticketservice.nl. All proceeds will be donated to support (RED) and the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa. The auction starting bid is: US$130.
It is estimated that the boys from Dublin will garner an estimated donation of US$12 million from their summer tour for charity.
