Live Nation has today confirmed dates for the European leg of U2’s upcoming eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour. Kicking off in Tulsa, Oklahoma on 2nd May, the European tour will begin in Berlin on 31 st August for a string of European dates to include Cologne, Paris, Madrid, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Amsterdam and Milan, as well as Manchester on 19th October and London on 23rd October. (Full itinerary below. Tickets on sale 26th January).
In addition, special home shows are being planned for Dublin and Belfast, details of which will be announced as soon as they are finalised.
Following last year’s acclaimed stadium run with The Joshua Tree Tour 2017, the eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour will see U2 return indoors to pick up where 2015’s groundbreaking iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour left off. The eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour follows the recent release of the band’s 14th studio album Songs of Experience. Just as Songs of Experience serves as a companion piece to 2014’s Songs of Innocence, the eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour is a sequel to the 2015 tour which saw “U2 reinvent the arena show” (Rolling Stone) and was named #1 concert of 2015 by The New York Times. As with every U2 tour, this new arena production will explore the latest in cutting-edge technology. Staged in the round, the eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour is a development of the unique and innovative staging of the 2015 tour, featuring multiple performance areas, a state-of-the-art sound system, plus an all-new super high-res LED screen nine-times the resolution of the 2015 screen.
Tickets for the U2 eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE European Tour will go on sale beginning Friday 26th January and there will be a public ticket limit of 4 tickets per person. U2.com subscribers will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets beginning Thursday 18th January at 10:00 am and running through Saturday 20th January at 5:00 pm.
