U2's The Edge Auctioning Rare Look at Band's 2011 360° World Tour

Bono isn't the only member of U2 with philanthropic pursuits. The band's equally legendary and considerate guitarist The Edge is stepping up to the plate this season to raise funds cancer research and he's doing so in a big, big way. If you a serious U2 fan, you are going to cream in your pantalonis when you get a load this charitable promotion/endeavor! But you have to act fast, as bidding is only open for two more days.
Bidding for what, you ask? Well, The Edge is auctioning a rare, intimate look inside U2's 2011 360° World Tour for two lucky fans. This is the ultimate backstage experience. Proceeds will benefit Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for cancer research.
Bidding is open through Thursday, October 21 at leading charity auction site charitybuzz at this location: http://www.charitybuzz.com/catalog_items/2051127. Go there now and start bidding. It's for a good cause and you'd get an intimate, rare, sacrifice-your-first-born chance to see the inner workings of one of the world's biggest bands whilst on tour.
Here are the details: The auction winner and a friend will fly first-class on Continental Airlines to the North American show of their choice to catch U2's performance from VIP seats. After the show, the fans will meet The Edge. Next, the lucky winners will take a look at the engine room of the "Space Station." While plenty of attention is given to the amazing structure built above the stage, beneath the band's feet lies the Underworld. The fans will go down to the mysterious, hidden depths beneath the U2 360° production. To make their Underworld experience even more memorable, their private tour guide will be The Edge himself! Whoa, right?
This once-in-a-lifetime adventure will raise funds for Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research (www.gabriellesangels.org), which funds research to improve the efficacy of cancer treatments, reduce their toxicity and improve the quality of life of patients with leukemia or lymphoma.
Are you planning to bid on this rare chance to see the inner "underworkings" of U2's 360° World Tour? I cannot think of a cooler prize or a better charity to work with.
