It's been the hot rumour of the last week, and now it has been confirmed - on 27 June 2010
, U2 are going to perform at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. This is just the second time U2 have performed in a stadium in Minneapolis, or anywhere in Minnesota for that matter - first was 29 October 1997
on the Popmart Tour's third leg.
The general sale will begin at 10am on Saturday, 21 November. Current students at the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities) will be able to participate in a presale for this concert, beginning at midday on 17 November 2009 - i.e. tomorrow
. Details are here
U2.com's tour page
has not been updated with presale information for U2.com subscribers at the time of this article's writing. Expect it to be updated soon, possibly also with ticketing information for East Lansing and Montreal. We will bring you further information when we have it.Update:
Ticketmaster already has presale information for East Lansing here
. It follows the usual pattern and, like Minneapolis, begins tomorrow.Update II:
Still nothing yet on U2.com, but Ticketmaster now has a page
for the Minneapolis show. It indicates that the U2.com presale will begin at 10am, following the usual pattern. This means Horizon subscribers will gain access two hours before the presale for students begins.
