The
Irish band held the signing at a London branch of Waterstones, allowing
only 250 fans into the event. However, just hours later the books began
to appear on the auctioning site, causing outrage among the public.

One fan told Bang
showbiz: “Any true fan would give their right arm to go to an event
like this. For a real fan to lose out on the chance so someone can make
a profit is outrageous and selfish. If Bono and the others knew about
this they’d be sickened. I’ll never buy anything off eBay again.”

Music
lovers have been flocking to the band’s website since the events of
last Friday, proclaiming their disgust at the situation.
