U2 Releases Last-Minute Block of Field Tickets for Miami Show June 29

Do you love U2 so much that you've been seized by sweaty nightmares of getting stuck outside Sun Life Stadium's gates on the evening of June 29, ticketless and tearful? Well, Bono heard your midnight screams!

Tomorrow morning at precisely 10 a.m., a last-minute block of general admission field tickets will become available for $55. So rather than struggling through another anxious night full of bad dreams, excessive perspiration, and pavor nocturnus, just forgo sleep, post up in front of your computer screen, and refresh U2's Live Nation page till it's finally time to snatch a pair of these precious tix.

Originally, U2's 360° Tour was supposed to make its Miami stop back on July 9, 2010. But Bono busted up his back a few months before the gig, forcing emergency surgery in Munich and a couple months of recovery time. It was a freaking nightmare! And the Sun Life Stadium show (as well as the entire summer 2010 leg of the tour) was rescheduled.

Finally, though, the 11-month wait -- not to mention your sweaty sleep terrors -- will be over in two weeks, one day, and a few hours. Just don't pass out on your keyboard, miss this last chance, and end up ticketless and tearful.

U2 with special guest Florence and the Machine. Wednesday, June 29. Sun Life Stadium, 2267 Dan Marino Blvd., Miami Gardens. The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets cost $30 to $250 plus fees via Call 305-623-6100 or visit
