– Special VIP entrance and greeting by (RED) Zone Hosts
– High profile General Admission areas on the field adjacent to the stage runway
– Built-in seating for pre-show comfort
– Access to special concession and merchandise stand
– As a special bonus, the top 10 highest winning ticket bids for each show will also receive a pre-show backstage tour of this highly anticipated, revolutionary product design.
(RED) Zone Packages are only available by Auction on ticketservice.nl. All non-ticket elements provided by Live Nation. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to support (RED) and the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa. The auction starting bid is: € 95,- You must raise your bid by at least € 5,-

It’s all in the name of charity and, as Bono said: “Rich people have feelings too”.
