U2 to play a second show in La Plata

As expected, a second concert has been added in La Plata, Argentina. The first show on 30 March 2011 has sold out, with the media reporting (in Spanish) that 80,000 tickets were sold in eleven hours. Hence, a second show has been added on 2 April 2011.

The support act will be Muse. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, 15 December. There will be a presale for U2.com members beginning tomorrow at 10am local time, Friday the 10th of December. It will run through to 8pm on 12 December.

Yet again, U2.com keep claiming these shows are in Buenos Aires. While they can somewhat get away with this on a technicality, as La Plata is in Buenos Aires province, U2.com's implication is that the shows are in Buenos Aires city, which they are not. La Plata is a separate nearby city. Foreign fans in particular should keep this in mind when arranging travel and accommodation.

And of course, rumours continue to circulate that La Plata will receive a third show, either on 3 April or in between the two currently announced shows. It all depends on how well this show sells. If it sells out swiftly, then a third show could very well happen.
