The 360° tour will open in Spain this June
U2 have confirmed the first dates of their new world tour, and the dates kick off at Barcelona’s Nou Camp Stadium on June 30.
The band who have just scored their tenth UK album No.1 with their 12th and latest release ‘No Line On The Horizon’ will visit 14 cities across Europe before heading to North America. The European dates include four live shows in the UK; London, Glasgow, Sheffield and Cardiff in August.
Support acts for the 360° tour will include Elbow, Kaiser Chiefs, Snow Patrol, Glasvegas and Black Eyed Peas.
The U2 360° tour is sponsored by BlackBerry® and it is the band’s first stadium outing since the Vertigo Tour in 2005/ 2006.
U2’s manager Paul McGuinness has also explained that the majority of tickets are priced cheaply, for a stadium tour. He said: “U2 has always been at their best when surrounded by their audience, this staging takes a giant leap forward. With 85 percent of the tickets priced at less than 95 Euro, general admission floor tickets priced at 55 euro and at least 10,000 tickets at every venue priced at around 30 Euro, we have worked very hard to ensure that U2 fans can purchase a great priced ticket with a guaranteed great view.”
Ticket onsale dates start on March 13, for full details see the U2 website here: www.U2.com
