Mark your calendars and set your alarms. Next Monday, beginning at 10 a.m. sharp, tickets for the July 9, 2010, U2 show at Land Shark Stadium go on sale.
If you're quick on your feet, you won't have to spend hundreds of dollars to get a good seat either. U2 announced previously that 85 percent of their tickets for this tour will be available for under $100. General admission runs $55 and there will be at least 10,000 tickets for just $30. However, knowing U2's popularity and the proliferation of ticket scalpers, you'll probably have about two minutes to grab these tickets before they sell out and you're forced to find other ways to get tickets.
Be sure to log on to Live Nation's website early Monday morning or get on the phone and call 877-598-8698 or 800-745-3000 if you're planning on attending what will probably be the most epic concert of 2010.
