Extra European shows for the Joshua Tree Tour 2017
Today, tickets went on sale to the general public for U2's European concerts on the 30th anniversary Joshua Tree Tour. As expected, tickets flew out the door - with far too many appearing very quickly on those laughable sanctioned "resale" websites owned by Ticketmaster.
But fortunately some extra shows have been added, as confirmed by U2.com:
- 2017-07-09 - London, England - Twickenham Stadium
- 2017-07-16 - Rome, Italy - Stadio Olimpico
- 2017-07-26 - Paris, France - Stade de France
- 2017-07-30 - Amsterdam, Netherlands - Amsterdam ArenA
Tickets for these shows will go on sale to the general public on Monday, 23 January.
This is all the information to hand at the moment, but presales for fans who have not used their U2.com subscriber allocation will happen. Keep an eye on your U2.com profile and on your emails for details.
Rumours are swirling regarding an extra date in Dublin, but at the moment the chances of an extra show are looking poor. There have also been denials of a second night in Brussels. No word yet on whether Berlin or Barcelona will get extra nights. The tone of the U2.com article, however, in saying these four additional shows "finalise the European leg" suggests that the itinerary is now complete.
This information may still change, especially as the strong demand for more Dublin shows may compel the band to seek permission for an extra show at Croke, so keep an eye on our Twitter account for the latest.
