Irish rock band and international phenomenon U2 will return to the concert-in-the-round format for a new leg of 360° Tour dates in 2010. The trek will launch in North American with a slate of shows from June 6 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, CA, through July 19 at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
A dozen dates have been inked for the six-week summer trek at this point. Highlights include performances on June 20 at Qwest Field in Seattle, WA; July 6 at Soldier Field in Chicago, IL; and July 12 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA.
Touring behind the 2009 studio album “No Line on the Horizon,” U2 will also strike north of the border for at least three shows. The Canadian dates are set for June 23 at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, AB; July 3 at Rogers Centre in Toronto, ON; and July 16 in Montreal, QC, though a venue has not yet been announced for this performance.
The first onsales for the tour begin November 2 in Oakland, Edmonton and Toronto. Presales also start in those cities this week, opening on October 27 and closing October 29. Additional onsales for the U.S. and Canada will follow later in November.
U2 is currently at the end of the first leg of its fast-selling 360° Tour, which concludes October 28 at BC Place Stadium in Vancouver, BC. The 2009 round of North American dates launched with two shows on September 12 and 13 at Soldier Field in Chicago, IL.
The Irish band’s 2010 calendar will also see a return to the European tour circuit, where the band is booked from August through October next year. Most presales and public onsales for those dates have already concluded, and nine performances have already sold out.
