Per a check on Ticketmaster, there are suddenly cheap seats (well, €33.60 pius booking fees cheap seats) back on sale for U2′s Monday show.

Couple of questions for Bono: dude, do you know the meaning of “sold out”? Or is this some sort of Dutch-approved tax-efficient measure? Or did you just find the tickets under your sofa?

This is a very strange state of affairs altogether. I mean, these so-called homecoming shows were supposed to have been sold out months ago. That’s what we were told and that’s what we were lead to believe. Then, there’s the fact that this is bloody U2 and their big-ass Dublin shows and The Crab (™ On The Record) that we’re talking about. This is not supposed to happen. The end must be truly nigh.

I suppose, though, every cloud has a silver lining: they won’t have to bother with pre-sales and fan club specials at this rate the next time the aul’ pension plan needs a boost.
