Haha, U2 fans get screwed

After releasing an absolutely shittacular album filled with a shitty media blitz that included iPods- you know, those really neat mp3 players which already had ads that annoyed the piss out of me before deciding to put U2 in a commercial, at which point I decided never to actually pay for one- U2 of course decided they were going to bring it to the masses (unfortunately not like how the Dave Matthews Band did, or else I would've laughed and made a bad pun). As is standard,t hey had an internet pre-sale for the tickets and...Ticketmaster got over 2 million hits.

And now apparently all the pre-sale tickets are sold out.

This was brought to my attention as a kind of human interest story in The Baltimore Sun this morning, where it was painted as a large hassle for a lot of people. Obviously they decided not to spice it up with jokes, or the fact that this is really quite funny, since U2 fucking blows, are overrated, and all the people getting screwed had to pay $40 for the club membership that would let them get the tickets.

So, let me get this straight- in order to buy tickets that are probably $52 plus service charges and tax for the cheap seats and going up to $163 plus service charges and tax for the better ones, you also have to pay $40 to get in on the internet presale instead of just signing onto Ticketmaster right now to buy them, since only the presale tickets sold out.

These people are really, really fucking stupid and they've been fleeced not only by U2, but by Ticketmaster. If anybody knows a U2 fan, you can tell them they can join my online members only club for $40. They get exclusive presales on tickets to a show where I mug them in a backalley.
