    Roger Waters' show was unbelievable. Saw it twice this year and going to see him next year for sure.

    The U2 show was absolutely wild, good for them. I've also seen Bon Jovi and they're pretty damn good at what they do as well.

    Couldn't agree more. Saw both of them. These bands are phenominal live.

    U2's ticket prices were reasonable...$250 for the inner-circle, $95 for the lower level stands, $55 for GA and $30 for the upper levels.

    I love how they mention Bon Jovi in the title as well, as if it was a close second, but nope, in second by over a hundred million.
