A second show for Helsinki, Finland has been announced for 21 August 2010 after the first show (20 August 2010) sold out. This is the first time ever that U2 will perform twice in Finland on one tour. The band have only been to Finland twice before, and both times played just one gig: late in the touring cycle for October, they appeared at the Ruisrock Festival in Turku on 7 August 1982, then did not return until Popmart Helsinki took place on 9 August 1997.
U2.com's tour page indicates that tickets for Helsinki II will go on sale next week, and there will be a presale for U2.com members. Dates are as follows, with all times local to the venue.
