U2 add two more shows to their US itinerary

Well, this might be a surprise to a lot of you. Not only have U2 added two extra concerts to the North American leg of the Experience + Innocence Tour, but if we'd asked you to guess last week, we doubt you'd have picked these cities.

First, the band have added a show in Omaha, Nebraska on 19 May, between their Los Angeles and Chicago dates. The only previous time U2 have performed a full tour gig in Omaha, or anywhere in Nebraska, was on 15 December 2005.

Second, they have added a show to the very end of the leg in Uncasville, Connecticut on 3 July. Uncasville? If you're not from New England you might need to look up where that is. It's near the coast, between Hartford, Connecticut and Providence, Rhode Island, and other famous artists such as Bruce Springsteen and Prince have performed at the arena. It's U2's first show in Connecticut since performing in Hartford on 7 December 2005, and the first time they've played somewhere in Connecticut other than Hartford or New Haven.

Fanclub presales begin tomorrow, Tuesday 6 March, at 10am eastern/9am central time for Experience members and at 11am eastern/10am central for Innocence members. If you have not yet used your presale code, you will receive information by email.

General public sale is Friday 9 March for Uncasville and Monday 12 March for Omaha, both at 10am local time.

Interestingly, the U2.com announcement does not say that these are the final dates for the tour, so there is hope yet for those people who hope there is truth in rumours of a second Atlanta show, or a visit to Toronto. U2.com usually state when additional shows are the last that will be added to the itinerary. The Mohegan Sun's Facebook says that the concert there is the last stop of U2's US tour, which does not rule out extra gigs beforehand, or Canadian shows afterwards.

Two more concerts for Dublin

The general sales have not even begun for U2's first two Experience + Innocence Tour concerts in Dublin, but another two shows have been added.

The additional concerts will take place at the 3Arena on 9 and 10 November.

U2.com's announcement confirms that no more shows will be added in Dublin. If you want a chance to see the band in their hometown, you will have these four concerts to choose from.

The presales for both shows are already underway. The general sales begin on Friday, 2 February, at the same time as the first two shows.

More U2 shows added—this time in North America as well as Europe

The extra Experience + Innocence Tour dates keep coming.

On the European leg, Milan has received a third show. This will take place on 15 October.

And, amid the flurry of European dates, there is also good news for fans across the pond in New York. A sixth New York-area show has been added to the North American leg—a third Madison Square Garden date (a venue U2.com continues to describe in the plural as "Gardens"). This show will take place on 1 July. The rumour mill suggests this will be the last night of the leg, but that additional shows might be added to fill gaps within the schedule. But for now that is rumour only.

Presale details are available from U2.com's tour page. General sales for these shows, and those announced yesterday, take place on Friday, 2 February. Check the local retailer for precise times.

These two new shows take the Experience + Innocence Tour to a total of 52 shows, exceeding the 51 played on the Joshua Tree 2017 Tour. But the total is still a fair way short of the 76 played during 2015 on the Innocence + Experience Tour.

U2 announce concerts in Belfast and Dublin for 2018; add extra Copenhagen date

U2 have announced the addition of three shows on the island of Ireland to the end of their European touring schedule, as well as an extra Danish show mid-leg.

The first show will take place on 27 October in Northern Ireland at Belfast's SSE Arena.

The other two shows will be in the Republic of Ireland at Dublin's 3Arena on 5 and 6 November.

A presale for U2.com subscribers commences very shortly—9am on Tuesday 29 January. Check your email for details if you're a subscriber. There is a two-ticket limit per subscriber. The public ticket sale will begin on Friday, 2 February, which has a four-ticket limit.

These are the same Irish venues that U2 visited on their European tour of 2015. The gap of three years between shows in Northern Ireland is remarkable—it is the shortest gap between concerts there since 1982. They performed at least annually in the North from 1979 to 1982, but since then have only visited in 1987, 1997, and 2015.

Moving away from Ireland, the first Copenhagen show went on sale today and sold very quickly. A second date has been added, on 30 September. Check the local ticket seller for public sale details, and U2.com subscribers should check their emails for presale information.

This means that every European city now has two gigs, except the just-announced visit to Belfast (see news on other extra dates here). And there is plenty of room to add a second show in Belfast; rumours also suggest Dublin will get at least four shows. Gaps in the tour schedule also imply that Paris is a good chance at getting a fourth show, and that Madrid and Milan could get third and fourth shows. We will have to wait and see.

Update: A third date for Milan on 15 October and a third date for New York on 1 July have been added as well.

Extra U2 shows in Europe

Concerts in Europe for U2's Experience + Innocence Tour have gone on sale today. Tickets have moved pretty quickly, so extra shows have been added in nine cities, and more are likely to follow.

The additional dates are:

Check the local ticket sellers for information on sales. U2.com subscribers can expect to receive information on presales by email.

These represent the second shows in eight of the nine cities, and the third show in Paris. There is not enough space in the schedule to accommodate a third show in five of the cities (unless U2 are willing to play three consecutive evenings in a row, something they have not done since 2001). But there is sufficient room for a fourth date in Paris, and a third and a fourth in Madrid. This, of course, assumes that tickets are sold fast enough to justify the additions.

It is worth noting that this is the first time U2 have ever played multiple shows in Hamburg, Lisbon, or Madrid on a single tour. This is not very surprising in Hamburg's case, as U2 last performed there in 1985. Meanwhile, all previous tours that have visited Lisbon or Madrid have played in large stadium venues. Previously, the only city in Portugal where U2 had performed multiple nights on the one tour was Coimbra in 2010. And the only Spanish city where U2 have performed multiple shows on the one tour was the Catalan capital Barcelona, in 1992, 2009, and 2015. Those 1992 and 2015 visits were on arena tours, meaning that the only time U2 have done multiple stadium shows in one Spanish city was when they began the 360 Tour in Barcelona in 2009.

By the way, U2.com have said that Dublin and Belfast dates will be announced at a later date, and U2songs have received information that there is a good chance those dates will be revealed by early next week. In all likelihood those concerts will take place in early November after U2 perform in London.


Extra shows have also been added in the UK. These are:

The only European city now with just one concert is Copenhagen—and that's because tickets do not go on sale until 29/01 in Denmark! There is room in the itinerary for an extra gig the next night, so if that first show sells well on Monday then keep an eye out for a second one being added.
