They may not be the greatest judges of how best to release a new album (clue: don’t force it into everybody’s ears like the drunk guy at the party bogarting the iPod), but hey, U2 can still rack up a stadium residency without breaking a sweat.
The globe-conquering Irish rockers have just announced a four-night run at The O2 in October 2015, as part of their iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour. We didn’t just fall on caps lock there, by the way – that’s how it’s written. The tour will be promoting latest album ‘Songs of Innocence’, which was automatically uploaded to more than half a billion iTunes accounts earlier this year, unannounced, much to the delight of some and the raging fury of others.
The shows take place on October 25, 26, 29 and 30, and will be U2’s only UK performances of the tour. Tickets, priced from £30-£165, go on sale on Mon Dec 8 at 9am, and can be booked here. Despite the large number of people that can fit in The O2 over four nights, don’t be surprised if the dates sell out pretty quickly, so get ready to book nice and early on Monday if you want to see U2 play a venue that could be mistaken for their own band name if you read it too quickly.
