U2.com's tour page
has been updated with opening bands for many of this year's upcoming concerts.
The opener at most North American concerts had already been announced, with only the shows in Montreal on 16
and 17 July
and the show in East Rutherford on 19 July
unannounced. Rumours have circulated online that Arcade Fire would open in Montreal, but these are evidently not true. U2.com have listed Interpol as the opener for all three shows.
As for the European concerts, only two concerts had confirmed openers - 30 August
in Vienna and 15 September
in Munich, both featuring OneRepublic. U2.com have added openers for almost all the remaining European dates. They are:
Snow Patrol: Moscow
OneRepublic: Zurich I
, Zurich II
, Brussels I
, Brussels II
, San Sebastian
, Coimbra I

Now the only 2010 shows without an opener announced are the two in Horsens and two in Helsinki.Update:
Snow Patrol has subsequently been confirmed for the two Horsens concerts as well, and the Helsinki shows will be opened by Razorlight.
