July 29th, 2011: I will trade my two grandstand tickets for the U2 Moncton show for a musical instrument or any other interesting trade.

Am I crazy to buy two tickets to U2 and Arcade Fire in Moncton? Maybe…but when they came on sale last winter I figured it is better to have two tickets instead of not have two tickets…and besides, Arcade Fire is super hot right now and U2 basically wrote much of the soundtrack of my ill-spent youth!
Trade anything for Free U2 Tickets http://moncton.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sell-tickets-Free-U2-Arcade-Fire-Tickets-Moncton-W0QQAdIdZ291144832 ….you know you waaaaant them!
email me directly to buy the tickets at firstname.lastname@example.org , I have the tickets here in Riverview New Brunswick I can deliver them in the Moncton area!
So the U2 360 concert tour was cancelled last year because of grandpa bono falling off the stage…no problem…the group is back and will be touring with Arcade Fire the darlings of the indie pop scene in 2010 and who would have believed it if they were told that U2 and Arcade Fire would be playing in Moncton, New Brunswick on the Magnetic Hill grounds?!
I wouldn’t believe it! In fact when we moved out of the hustle and bustle of Quebec we thought we had left the metropolitan insanity of concerts in Montreal but no sooner had we arrived that we see that U2 was coming and no sooner had we un-packed our boxes that we realized that maybe Moncton, New Brunswick was actually the pop-culture center of the Maritimes? Arcade Fire? U2? Are you kidding me???
The first thing I did was run street to street and collect as many 10 cent deposit bottles and returnable pepsi cans until I had the $500 dollars for a pair of tickets from TicketMaster for some good stadium seats at the concert.
I mean, if I am going to watch The Edge and Bono rip out some hits like Beautiful Day, Sunday Bloody Sunday, and I Still Haven’t Found What I’m looking For then I want to not be just general seating on a mud soaked grassless pit rented by Donald K Donald or whoever is promoting this glam fest…oh no…I want to sit in the stands where I can enjoy my THC buzz in the (please please please) sunshine of a July concert on Magnetic Hill.

I haven’t paid for a pair of concert tickets in a long long time…last time was Chris Cornell live in Montreal…or hold on…no maybe it was The Tragically Hip…nope I didn’t pay for those tickets…
Having worked in some rep-house theatres like the Rialto in Montreal I saw some crazy acts like Janes Addiction, The Pixies, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds. Don’t get m,e wrong…living in the big MTL was great with so many concerts…so many great acts over the years and now to finally have a pair of tickets to the U2 Arcade Fire show in Moncton was getting my rock and roll blood boiling into a frothy disease like the good old days of weeks gone by!!
But do I really want to go to the show? The concert is going to be at 3pm which is great but we’re talking an outdoor show at Magnetic Hill concert grounds and it might be pouring down clumps of horrid rain which would slightly suck…I mean if you are looking for a Woodstock type of outdoor event where mud soaked adolescents are sliding through ponds full of muck while foggy decibels of “Beautiful Day” wash over us like a tidal bore then it might be ok.
But actually it could be an incredible moment, I mean seeing Arcade Fire on stage in a fairly small rural setting might be cool. Moncton is pretty cool and we live over the Peticodiac in Riverview so it is only a short ride to the show. And for the legends like U2 this is probably the last tour we can expect from these rockers. I remember when the War album came out I was a teenage wannabe living in Yellowknife and their music totally rocked my small town rhino world! Now a few years later having the tickets and the chance to see my past and present and watch the future over top of me is incredible! How could I say no to the chance!
Of course there are other big shows in the Maritimes and PEI has Meatloaf and Haywire at their Prince Edward Island Summerfest…OUCH! I think I would prefer Arcade Fire and U2 instead!! But when I hear songs like The Suburbs by Arcade Fire I wonder if I even want to see that…sitting in some Magnetic Hill outdoor park? Sorry but that song doesn’t do it for me! I think the producer could have ripped that song into something completely cool but it doesn’t sound like they had any will to polish it up. Oh well!
That being said, I might have to work that day so if anyone wants to buy my U2 Arcade Fire tickets for the Moncton show email me or get them on the Kijiji website here.
