Extra show for Los Angeles, more to come in both North America & Europe

Today, one extra show for U2's Innocence + Experience Tour was announced. A fifth date in Los Angeles will be performed on Wednesday, 3 June 2015.

The announcement also confirms that extra shows will be added in Barcelona, Chicago, London, and New York. The precise dates have not been given, but will be announced soon. Keep in mind that last year U2.com also confirmed that there will be shows in Dublin at the end of 2015 once details are finalised. See the full list of existing dates here; gaps in the schedule should indicate where the extra shows will slot in.

Tickets for the fifth LA show go on sale this Friday, 30 January. If you are a U2.com subscriber who has not yet used their presale code, or a brand new subscriber, there will be a presale beginning at 10am Tuesday, 27 January. Qualifying subscribers will have received an email with their code. If you are an existing subscriber, renewing your subscription for another year won't get you an extra code immediately; we understand that it will be issued when your resubscription starts (e.g. April, if your subscription rolls over to a new year then), to be used during that year.

The addition of just one show in Los Angeles is a little bit of a surprise, as all shows to date have been announced in pairs. The promotional material for this announcement even requotes Bono's statement that night one and night two will be distinctively different. Some fans have noted that the Los Angeles shows to date have not necessarily sold as fast as expected (the original tour schedule allowed for eight shows in the city), so perhaps only one has been added to test the waters and see if sufficient demand exists for a sixth rather than gambling on both at once. Also keep in mind that the band could simply play the night one set thrice and the night two set twice; they need not be played evenly!

16 extra U2 shows for North America and Europe

Yesterday morning, tickets for U2's Innocence + Experience Tour went on sale and flew out the door rapidly. Today extra concerts have been announced for multiple cities.

North America

There will be eight extra shows in North America. Extra shows for Montreal will take place on 16 and 17 June 2015. Extra shows for Chicago will take place on 28 and 29 June 2015. Extra shows for Boston will take place on 14 and 15 July 2015. Extra shows for New York will take place on 26 and 27 July 2015.

The two additional shows in Montreal mean that this will be the first time U2 have played four concerts in Montreal on a single tour. U2 are also playing six consecutive concerts in New York for the first time; they have played more shows in New York on a single tour leg when they did seven on Vertigo's third leg but those shows were non-consecutive (a run of five and then two later).

Europe

There will also be eight more shows in Europe. Extra shows for Amsterdam will take place on 12 and 13 September 2015. Extra shows for Stockholm will take place on 20 and 21 September 2015. Extra shows for Berlin will take place on 28 and 29 September 2015. Extra shows for Paris will take place on 14 and 15 November 2015.

These additional shows take the total number of gigs in each city to four, and this is the first time U2 have played four shows on a single tour in any of these cities. In the case of Berlin this tour is the first time U2 have played more than a single show there.


Tickets go on sale on Monday 15 December 2014. A U2.com members presale will begin TOMORROW, Wednesday 10 December 2014 for Experience group subscribers (i.e. those who subscribed before 9 September 2014) and on Thursday 11 December for Innocence group subscribers (i.e. new subscribers). There are no new presale codes being issued, so if you used your code in the first round of presales last week you cannot use it again.

U2 without Bono keep World AIDS Day commitment

We all know how much different attending a U2 gig is as opposed to watching a concert DVD in the comfort of your living room.

Turn off all the lights in your house, cranking up the stereo and blaring Ultraviolet or dancing to New Year's Day just after the stroke of midnight on January 1st is great, but it's nothing like seeing our four guys jam in person.

Well, even with just three of the four guys rocking out onstage, actually being there at a U2 show is indescribably better, even if it means getting rained on in near freezing temperatures.

I have my fair share of complaints about living in New York City, but seeing two free, unique U2 performances in one year is not one of them.

For those of you hibernating until U2's next tour is announced any second now, the band, minus Bono, played a four song set in Times Square on Monday night, with Coldplay's Chris Martin and Bruce Springsteen substituting as U2's frontman.

And like the other few thousand people in attendance, I didn't find out about the concert until about 2:30pm, as I casually checked Instagram while at work.

U2's performance at KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas CANCELLED

Yesterday, one bit of news got a bit lost in the excitement of U2 announcing their tour for 2015. Unfortunately, the band have had to cancel their performance on 14 December 2014 at KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas.

Edge, in a telephone call to KROQ, informed them that Bono is under doctor's orders to stay home. Hence the band have taken the decision to cancel the performance rather than do a repeat of their U2 Minus 1 style set. You can read more quotes from Edge and listen to the full interview here.

If you have tickets to night two of Almost Acoustic Christmas and no longer wish to attend, you can receive a refund via Ticketmaster. You've got roughly a week to get into action; the deadline to claim a refund is 12 December.

And don't forget that U2.COM SUBSCRIBER PRESALES FOR THE 2015 TOUR OF NORTH AMERICA AND EUROPE START TODAY. Visit U2.com's tour page for links to ticket sellers, check your email for your presale code, and if you have any further questions then read this very informative thread on Interference.

Announcement of U2's Innocence and Experience Tour 2015

It's that time again, folks - U2 will be heading back on the road with a new tour! After months of rumours, speculation, promotional performances, and bicycle accidents, U2 have officially announced dates for their tour in 2015. See below for dates and ticketing information.

Today's announcement features two legs, the first in North America and the second in Europe. Both legs will be in arenas. It will be U2's first arena concerts since the North American legs of the Vertigo Tour in 2005, and U2's first arena concerts in Europe since the second leg of Elevation in 2001. The stage will be located in the centre of the arena, spanning the length of the arena floor, with a giant double-sided screen above it. Bono has said that the band aim to provide a different experience from night one to night two in each city, but does not elaborate further, only stating that more information will be revealed later.

Our database listings for these shows can be found here. The astute among you will notice some pretty big gaps have been left in the schedule for extra shows to be added once these sell out. We already have rumours, for instance, that there will be additional shows in Paris on 14 and/or 15 November. The earlier rumours of a residency-style tour have only somewhat come true. Although U2 are not setting up camp exclusively in seven cities, the touring schedule is rather restricted. The band have stuck with playing lots of shows in tried-and-true markets on the logic of "built it and they will come".

On neither leg are U2 performing shows in countries or even cities they have never visited before. However, this is the first time a U2 tour will begin in Canada.

The Glasgow dates are exactly 31 years since two epic gigs on the Unforgettable Fire Tour at the Barrowlands Ballroom on 6 and 7 November 1984.

Some of you may be surprised that there are no shows in Dublin or elsewhere in Ireland. There is, however, precedent for this. On Zoo TV, U2 did not perform in Dublin until the end of the fourth leg, a year and a half after the tour began. Irish fans likely won't have to wait that long this time though. U2.com confirm that U2 are booking special shows for the end of 2015, the arrangements for which are yet to be finalised.

TICKETING INFORMATION

Tickets in both North America and Europe will go on general sale on Monday, 8 December 2014. There will be a U2.com presale commencing Thursday, 4 December. That's tomorrow! U2.com subscribers should keep an eye on their emails for their presale code. The presale on the 4th is only for legacy subscribers, i.e. those of you signed up before 9 September 2014; you're called the "Experience Group". For new subscribers since that date, the "Innocence Group", there will be a presale the next day, 5 December. There is a two ticket limit, which you can use either for two tickets to one show or one ticket each to two shows. If you do not use the code now, it will be valid when further shows are announced, including the Dublin gigs. See U2.com's FAQ for more.

In the US, general admission tickets will cost US$65. The most expensive seats will be $250–275 and will work their way down to very cheap $30 seats. The Red Zone from 360 in a corner of the general admission floor will be repeated this tour, and there are are also VIP packages being offered that include merchandise, travel, etc. along with a seated ticket.
