Noticed this morning that that before the tickets were sold out, there was a ticket (standard) for U2 on Stubhub for £2714. Sheer Madness

      Unless you happened to like them and would really enjoy the show like, er, the buyers who bought all 50,000 tickets in 30 mins. It’s nice to be free to choose the music you like.

        Possibly but there is no guarantee anyone would actually buy them. You were only limited to 2 tickets anyway and those who really wanted to go got their tickets in the presale/general sale.

          Well judging by the prices listed on Seatwave etc there is definitely a market. Man I wanna be a sleazy scalper, could have been a winter hollier sorted.
