The African Well Fund is capping off its seventh annual Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday fundraiser by auctioning two pairs of general admission tickets for the upcoming U2 360° Tour through our eBay page. The first pair of tickets is for Sept. 12 at Chicago’s Soldier Field, the first North American date of the tour. The second pair is for Oct. 29 at Vancouver’s BC Place Stadium, the final date of the tour.
The Chicago tickets will be up for bid from this Friday, May 1 through next Friday, May 8. The Vancouver tickets will be up for bid from this Saturday, May 2 through next Saturday, May 9. Bids for both pair of tickets will start at $140. Results of both auctions will be announced on the AWF homepage on May 10, Bono’s birthday.
AWF held two auctions in March for the Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday fundraiser. In honor of Adam Clayton’s March 13 birthday, an “Under the Blood Red Sky” reissue CD/DVD signed by Bono, Edge and Adam was auctioned for a winning bid of $449. An anonymous supporter donated a “Joshua Tree” LP signed by Bono, Edge and Adam that fetched $610.
Funds raised from the auctions and donations will benefit the Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday project in Liberia. Learn more about the project here.
AWF will be collecting donations for this fundraiser through Bono’s May 10 birthday. To make a donation or learn more about Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday, click here.
